It's the Dungeons & Dragons suicide hysteria all over again - a player of online game EverQuest committed suicide; and now his mother is suing Sony (the game's maker). At least her goals are realistic - she wants health warnings placed on the game, warning against extended play. Fair enough. This article does at least point out that a balanced, happy person playing the game will not be turned into a suicidal maniac; but for an unstable individual it could provide triggers for attacks of depression, yes, perhaps even suicide. But the game alone is not responsible.
