Overall, and generally, yes.

That is some crazy sh!t.

I play WoW a I don't act like that of course I'm not a kid anymore :)

Anyways, it is rated T for teen for a reason.

The parent needs to obviously use better parenting techniques.

The child probably has some for of ADD or ADHD or a different Illness.

If in moderation like everything else it should be fine.

I didn't like wow generally, I found the charecter building system kind of bland.

NWN series/ D&D is the way to go in this category, though its not mmorpg.

The interview after.




Did he shove the remote up his butt?

lol, yes. I've seen this b4, I think he's either crazy or (more probably) it's faked. There are lots more vids on youtube, his bro is behind it all.

I mean, you have no idea it's not faked. The mother has come out and said that it's faked. I'm more inclined as well to believe that it's fake—seriously, the kid breaks guitars and takes metal baseball bats to trucks. Fake, but hilarious anyway.

Of course the mother said it's fake; she doesn't want Child Services to remove her children from her custody.

Meh, I've played Wow. It's not particularly violent, but it is addictive. However, it's rated Teens for a reason. If they can't handle it, don't give it your kids
Pizza. I have enormous respect for Pizza.

Who cares if it's fake? It's not encouraging anything irrational of its audience, it's not asking for money. Enjoy it for what it is: some really, really funny stuff.

As for the topic of this thread, any video game is potentially harmful. Nothing particularly harmful about WoW, though.
