Starcraft broodwar South Korea's broadband connection rate is extremely high. Under this circumstance, South Korea's online gaming industry brings in revenues of one-point-two billion dollars a year and has been growing by about 25 percent annually, expanding exports to the United States, China, Japan and other markets. Korea's online games as an example of a national project developed rapidly with government support. Now people play the online games as an integral part of life, as entertainment. The online game has become the equivalent of a gathering place.

There was a another story about a 38-year-old man's death. He also was a online game addict who played a online game for 417 hours 20 day. Their cause of death was a so-called economy-class syndrome that people on a long-distance flight have.

I was concerned that many people have learned too much about such violent games and have forgot about their health and responsibilities.
