Erik Estavillo, a gamer in San Jose, California is suing Blizzard because he believes that World of Warcraft ruined his social life. He argues that Blizzard's World of Warcraft is a "harmful virtual environment," and that much of its design is "sneaky and deceitful." In particular, this oddball plaintiff believes that World of Warcraft has the highest subscription fee of any MMORPG ($14.99 USD monthly), and that portions of the game, like having to walk to one's corpse and a lack of mounts at lower levels, are all designed to waste his monthly fee.
Hilariously enough, the gamer is also subpoenaing Depeche Mode musician Martine Gore and actor Winona Ryder because they both understand what it's like to be lonely and anti-social. Gore was chosen because "he himself has been known to be sad, lonely, and alienated, as can be seen in the songs he writes," and Ryder was named because of her acting role in J.D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye. Previous to this lawsuit, Estavillo also sued Sony for banning him from their Playstation Network while he was playing Resistance: Fall of Man. The case was dismissed in September, but Estavillo has now appealed it, and is also suing Microsoft and Nintendo because a broken Xbox 360 caused him "undue stress," and a Wii update that blocked access to a third-party program interfered with his inalienable right to pursue happiness.
