If anyone would like to read more about this kind of marketing. I recommend Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products by Nir Eyal.

First 3 chapters are free, each additional chapter is $1.50 each

Although the Epilogue is $19.99, and if you don't like to read that much you could get the cliff notes just $0.09 a word, although things like "the" "if" or "is" are included at no cost!

This really negates the overall problem. The kid needs to learn to put down his phone and just enjoy living. No one cares that you are the best and number one in candy crush bullshit.

When I was around 8-9 I racked up a few grand in calling 800 numbers. Basically the same thing. You know what I learned from it all and having to pay it all back. To stop being and acting pathetic and to get out of my bubble and live and interact with real people. Instead of hiding in my room pretending my life was better then it really was.

I’d like to feel for him, but that’s the business model now. Do I like it? No, I don’t play those games any longer due to my personal lack of competitiveness. I could stay home all day, practice and not have a job, life, wife and home or...

Like I said, I feel for him but asking isn’t the solution. Not playing hurts them more.

Edit: I hope he gets his message out.

Game makers are frothing at the mouth at possibly landing people like him into their scams.

So he is just really bad at playing the game.
