South Korea is planning to impose a ban on kids playing video games past midnight.

The government of South Korea is imposing a ban on underage gamers playing online role playing games past midnight in the wake of rising video game addiction among the country's youth.

The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism plans to initiate a six hour ‘black-out' period starting at midnight when under aged users will have their online access to games automatically shut down. Apart from this, if they are logged on for a long period of time, their Internet connection speed will reduce drastically.
