Anyone who has played a video game has experienced the desire to keep going even when work, school -- even Mom -- calls for him to put down the controller and walk away. While most gamers can step away from the virtual world, some can not. Craig Smallwood of Hawaii couldn't, so he filed a lawsuit.

In the suit, he blames NCSoft, the publisher of his favorite game, Lineage II, for not warning him about the game's "addictive" nature.
