Last summer, we wrote about China's plans to limit the amount of time people could spend playing online video games by requiring companies to make the gameplay less fun after three hours, and by five hours have the player's ability "severely limited." As you might imagine, a bunch of gamers were pretty annoyed by this and responded angrily (must be all that aggression from video games). So, a bit surprisingly, China has backed down. The video game time limit will only apply to those under 18. Meanwhile, a kid in the US is under his own similar video game time limit after doctors determined that his regular video gaming was leading to unstoppable head twitches -- though, that seems like a fairly uncommon occurrence.
