She Blinded Me With Gaming

A young Chinese woman lost her sight after spending an entire day playing a game on her cellphone. Now I guess she’ll have to make the transformation from gamer to kung fu master.

A 21-year-old Chinese woman went blind in one eye after playing the popular video game Honour of Kings on her mobile phone non-stop for a whole day.

The unnamed gaming addict suddenly lost sight in her right eye on Sunday evening, after she had been playing all day at her parents’ home in Dongguan, Guangdong province, news website reported on Wednesday.

She was diagnosed on Wednesday morning with retinal artery occlusion in her right eye at a hospital in the city’s Nanchang district.

There’s only one thing I can say about this woman, and that is, “Well done! You are the greatest hero in Chinese gaming history!”

  1. There was an episode of Star Trek – TNG that had Riker bringing a video game onboard the Enterprise. It was so addictive that almost the entire crew stopped doing their duties until Wesley and a friend managed to save the day.

    The above analysis is vague because I found the plot too much like the game Tetris (a Russian invention many in my office deemed “a communist plot to sabotage American productivity”), that I stopped watching it and just channel surfed the hour away.

    Hmm… where was I going with this? Oh well, back to my internet surfing…


  2. Cathy – Can’t we say both?

    TXNick – My friend and I played it all the time during our college years. Our other friends were not impressed, and one compared it to “playing a video SAT test.”

    Proof – Thread winner!

    Ingineer – Domo arigato.
