Families Whose 'Children Don't Sleep' because of the Fortnite Game Sued Epic Games
Three families in Canada have sued Epic Games, alleging that their child is not sleeping, eating, or showering because of the Fortnite game.
Three families in Canada sued Epic Games, the maker of the game, on the grounds that their children became addicted to the Fortnite game.
Quebec Supreme Court Judge Sylvain Lussier compared the game to tobacco addiction. “The harmful effects of tobacco were not recognized and accepted overnight,” said Judge Lussier.
The lawsuit states that one of the children played Fortnite for more than 7,700 hours in less than 2 years.
It is emphasized that the World Health Organization (WHO) acknowledged in 2018 that Fortnite game causes 'game addiction'. The file also claims that the game was developed in a "highly addictive way".
Epic Games, on the other hand, claims that gaming addiction is not a recognized psychological disorder.
