Sick and tired of his son playing video games and not listening to him, a father in China decided to take matters into his own hands... well, sort of. Instead of sending his son off to addiction camp or stripping him of internet and gaming rights, Mr. Feng chose to hire an online "hitman" to school his son.

Feng's 23 year-old son, "Xiao Feng" started playing video games in high school. Through his years of playing various online games, he supposedly thought himself a master of Chinese online role playing games. According to his father, Xiao Feng had good grades in school, so they allowed him to play games; but when he couldn't land a job they started looking into things. He, however, says he simply couldn't find any work that he liked. Feng was annoyed that his son couldn't even tough it out for three months at a software development company.

Unhappy with his son not finding a job, Feng decided to hire players in his son's favorite online games to hunt down Xiao Feng. It is unknown where or how Feng found the in-game assassins—every one of the players he hired were stronger and higher leveled than Xiao Feng. Feng's idea was that his son would get bored of playing games if he was killed every time he logged on, and that he would start putting more effort into getting a job.

Despite being sick of getting killed every time, Xiao Feng decided to stick up to his father and tell him how he felt. He was quoted as saying, "I can play or I can not play, it doesn't bother me. I'm not looking for any job—I want to take some time to find one that suits me."

Hearing his son's earnest plea, Feng said that he was "relieved". It's unsure if Feng has called off his assassins or if Xiao Feng has found a job. One thing's for sure; Feng's way of deterring his son from playing games might be one of the best ideas to come out of China recently, particularly as reactions to "gaming and internet addiction" have been very extreme.

So there are Chinese hipsters too?

Seriously though, isn't it good to know that it's not just American young adults who are lazy and feel entitled?

Why throw the Xbox away? Pappy Chan should play it himself.

Not a bad idea. Since he couldnt stop his son from playing anywhere he thought outside the box and figured out a way to keep his son from playing.

I am sure other parents will pick up on the idea and join him.

Meanwhile in some other house some kid is yelling at his dad that he has a job.. he is a hired hitman from other parents and is turning his game obsession into a profitable business.

Irony, and would be fucking great, is if his son chooses "online hitman" as his "job" too.

It sounds like Papa Cheng needs to take a page out of Papa Puncher's childrearing book and accessorize his haberdashery with a stylin' HDMI cable belt.
