- World of Warcraft
In another disturbing tale, an American mother, Rebecca Colleen Christie, got so much into World of Warcraft that she lost the most valuable person in her life. World of Warcraft, an online multiplayer role-playing game, is known for attracting the attention of people with addiction issues. In this case, Christie forgot to feed her three-year-old daughter and starved her to death, after playing for a non-stop 15 hours. After the game, she found her daughter unresponsive and called the 911.
