A father in China went to extreme measures to make his 23 year old son stop playing online video games. What would be your punishment if you were the father?

A man in China hired virtual “assassins” to hunt down his son in online video games and kill off his avatar, according to local media.

The man, named Mr Feng, was concerned about the amount of time his 23-year-old unemployed son was spending online.

He hoped his actions would deter his son from playing the games, he is reported to have said.

His son eventually asked one of the gamers why they kept targeting him.
