Dying for a Game – South Korea

November 2003
South Koreans spend up to 12 hours a day playing computer games. It’s an addiction that in some cases is proving fatal. It’s estimated that there are more than a thousand professional ‘gamers’ in Korea. Most live in dormitories, spending virtually all their waking life in front of a computer screen. Computer companies spend millions supporting and training the gamers. But is this national sport really good for the country.
