Vietnamese Government Gaming Restrictions

What?! Vietnam Bans Online Gaming After 10 p.m.

In an effort to curb excessive gaming among its youth, Vietnam has placed a ban on online gaming between the hours of 10 p.m. and 8 a.m. — for everyone. So even adults won't be able to access any online gaming sites between those hours. The order comes from the Vietnamese government, who has asked Internet service providers to block access during restricted times. They have until March 3 to comply, or risk being shut down completely.

Obviously, a gaming addiction is serious and certainly not positive — especially at a young age — but to ban a legal activity seems completely absurd. If it's children they're worried about, the government should give parents responsibility over their children's online gaming habits. It's fairly far-fetched to think that something like this could happen in the US, but seeing such extreme measures, even in another culture, is scary.
