According to a report from Russian state media RT, a man from Krasnoyarsk is suing Fallout 4 developer Bethesda over his "addiction" to the RPG, which he claims led to him losing his job and wife, among other things. He's seeking 500,000 roubles (around $7,000) for emotional distress.

The man saw an advertisement for Fallout 4 and downloaded the game, intending to only play "for a couple of evenings." But that's not what happened. He apparently skipped work to play Fallout 4, which led to his termination. The RT report also says the 28-year-old stopped hanging out with friends, while his wife left him, and his health started to fall apart apparently as a result of constantly playing the game.

"If I knew that this game could have become so addictive, I would have become a lot more wary of it," he said in a statement to RT. "I would not have bought it, or I would have left it until I was on holiday or until the New Year holidays."

This is so stupid. There's no way that this is Bethesda's fault in any way.

''You made a game that I love so much that I deliberately skipped work and ruined my own life. It's totally your fault.''

The strangest part about this is that this is the same kind of thinking behind the whole "Mcdonald's made me fat" thing or any fast food for that matter.

A Russian dude is trying to sue? Well, I don't know how that stuff works in Russia, but I think if it happened here in the 'States, he'd win.

It's his fault for being addicted to Fallout.
I guess his brain cells were annihilated while playing Fallout.
