By now, you would’ve probably already read dozens upon dozens of Fallout 4 reviews that mention in extensive detail how and why the game could possibly be the best game of 2015. In fact, we’re pretty sure that you’ve already completed the game multiple times over by now.

Regardless of how hooked you are to Fallout 4, it probably wouldn’t be to the drastic extent of this 28-year-old Russian man who, according to Russian news outlet, RT, had spent three entire weeks absorbed in the world of Fallout 4, which consequently cost him his health, job, and even his wife.

As a result, the man, who hails from the city of Krasnoyarsk, is now suing Bethesda for 500,000 rubles (approx. RM30,028) for causing ‘emotional distress.’

He mentioned in a statement that if he had been warned beforehand about how entrancing the game was going to be, he would’ve held off his purchase until the holidays or stayed away from it entirely.
