<p>On the 2008 Thanksgiving weekend, Steve and Angelika Crisp confiscated their son Brandon's Xbox. He retaliated by running away from home, and a much-publicized and unthinkable tragedy followed: his body was discovered three weeks later. Brandon's death became a national news story about much more than just another teen runaway. His disappearance and death revealed to parents a darker aspect to their children's video gaming: addiction. In a&nbsp;<i>Fifth Estate</i>&nbsp;investigation, reporter Gillian Findlay goes inside this virtual community where gaming addiction can trump family and friends. Interviews with a self-confessed former gaming addict, a therapist who's seeing more and more gaming addicts, Brandon's best friend, and of course, his grieving parents, reveal the consequences of this growing teen obsession.&nbsp;Warning: This program contains occasional scenes with coarse language. Viewer discretion is advised.<br></p>
