PETALING JAYA - "Jeffrey* has always enjoyed unfettered access to games, starting with small video games before "levelling up" to the latest craze in the gaming world.
The childhood hobby morphed into an expensive obsession for Jeffrey by the time he was in his 20s.
A brief respite from this obsession followed after he got married in 2006 but old habits die hard, and Jeffrey was soon back in the game, much to the chagrin of his wife.
"Even after our child was born two years into our marriage, I was still willing to fork out a lot of money to upgrade my gaming equipment for better performance," he said in an interview.
That jolted Jeffrey.
