A man in Russia, filed a lawsuit against the maker of Fallout 4, after he allegedly lost his wife and job while playing the game for three weeks straight.

The 28-year-old man is demanding $7,000 in compensation, saying that the company failed to warn consumers that the game can be addictive.

The man of Krasnoyarsk, learned about the game when an advertisement popped up on his computer. The man downloaded the Fallout 4, and that is when his problems began.

After playing for a few hours the first two days, he became addicted and played for three weeks straight. He skipped work, which caused him to be fired.

He stopped talking to his wife, which caused her to dump him.

The man told the court that his health began to deteriorate, and he was not sleeping or eating properly. Bethesda Game Studios was named as a defendant in the lawsuit.
