Candy Crush Addict Steals Almost $2,000 from Ailing Mother to Feed Gaming Habit

In its run of success these past years, many of us have felt at least a little bit of an addiction to Candy Crush Saga on our smartphones, tablets, or Facebook pages. But has your love of the game ever driven you to steal thousands of dollars just to keep playing –– and from your own mother, no less?

less to do with candy crush and more to do with a dumb and selfish person.

In a way, it does have something to do with Candy Crush. A lot of these mobile games are so popular because they are so addictive and they hook you in. They're designed to keep your attention and squeeze as much money out of you as possible.

This person brought it to the extreme, there is no denying that. You also can't deny that this was partially brought on by the way the game is designed.

No... What's up with modern society always trying to blame something on the fault of the individual.

You sound like one of those politicians who talks about banning certain games. Nope. This has nothing to do with Candy Crush and everything to do with a horrible human.

I have to agree with JB, if your addicted to such a stupid game, that is completely your fault, chances are you probably aren't too smart either to get addicted to something like that so easily.

I mean this is sadder than stealing money for drugs, at least you actually get something, a feeling when doing drugs though, you get nothing out of playing candy crush.

I played that crappy game once and never touched it again and the time I did play it, I didn't even play it longer than 2 minutes. No idea why everyone is so obsessed with it, like pattern matching games have never been made before.

The game just came out at a perfect time where people are becoming more and more stupid with each passing generation. Kids these days blow my mind with how incredibly dumb they are, the future is looking pretty grim.

Children are our future my ass. Not when their raised on constant stupidity, TV is super stupid now, the radio plays non-stop retarded music most the time and the internet surely ain't helping a damn thing sadly, seeing as most kids don't use it for learning anything anyway.

Sad times we live in when people are doing this for a crappy mobile game that isn't even original.

Never played it, never will, and it's shameful that she stole from her own mother to pay for something like this.
