- Slender: The Arrival
Sometimes, the obsession with a game can make people do stuff which they probably would never have dared to even dream of doing. In May 2014, two 12-year-old girls in Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA stabbed their classmate 19 times, believing that doing so would please the mythical villain of the game Slender: The Arrival. In another instance, a 14-year-old American girl set her family’s home in Port Richey, Florida, on fire, with her mother and younger brother still inside it. The girl, who was obsessed with the ‘Slender Man’ lore, thought it would impress the antagonist of the game.
We hope all those video-game lovers can understand that it is you who should play the video-game and not the other way around. Don’t let a video-game take control over your body and mind.
