Even Women Can Be Obsessed With Video Games

This one went a little to far, but it happens.

Sometime within the past year, a woman in England became obsessed with a Facebook game involving orcs, dwarfs, and conquest. Not Farmville, but probably SmallWorlds. It started out as an hour everyday, to full blow World of Warcraft addict mode, getting no more then two hours of sleep a night.

When police arrived in her home, after her neighbor filed a complaint, two of her dogs were in the kitchen, dead. Decomposing, with maggots and flys breeding over their courpses. Her three children were malnourished and had to eat food from cans, anything that didn't require heating up to avoid the kitchen.

This is the part that sickens me:

The woman tried to block officers from entering the dining room and when asked why she replied: "All right, my dogs are in there. They are dead. I killed them. 

"I probably starved them, probably because I have been playing the computer game all the time." 

 Her attorney is claiming insanity (no shock there) based on her husband's sudden death two years ago. The mother has been sentenced to 6 months in prison, banned from owning animals ever again (yea!) and banned from the internet. I'm surprised she didn't get worse and that her children aren't being taken away.
