South Korea to impose curfew on online games for those under 15
Recalling the time of being a teenager will most probably include raiding tombs in the wee hours until the sun comes up. The worst is doing a repetitive and boring leveling at Clock Tower and hunting Valkyrie MVP back when Ragnarok Online is still popular. Those were the days. However, current age kids at South Korea might not be able to have clan war matches for their Starcraft 2, and raid tombs in WoW until the next morning anymore.
The National Assembly in South Korea and the judiciary committee have unanimously passed a bill that effectively prevents all under 15s from playing any form of online games from midnight to 6AM everyday (including weekends). The bill however, does not affect offline and console games.
I can already pinpoint a few issues with this calling. First of all, how do you identify which gamer is legit and which is not, since there are a vast huge amount of online games in Korea. Secondly, offline games are still available, and the kids can still play offline campaigns when the curfew takes place. Even Starcraft 2 has an offline mode where you can play against AI. How can such ruling be enforced?
