Stalkers all around the world have heaped glowing praise on the Nintendo's Wii latest release, saying it successfully captures the psychological state of erotomania realistically without sacrificing any of the gameplay.

Wii Stalking, which was released last week, has already developed an obsessional fan base, with followers of the game going to extreme lengths to express their appreciation and devotional love to the game's creators.

Many attribute the game's popularity to the highly addictive quality of the game, in which players choose a particular avatar to become psychotically obsessed with and set out to convince that avatar to form a lasting relationship, whilst simultaneously attempting to avoid police, security and judges who are looking to slap a restraining order on the "stalker".

The game's realistic feel may be due to the content being developed with the help of real stalkers, who were recruited to give insights into the delusional mindset and neuroses of the game's central protagonists.

The game has also been praised by sufferers for its pluralist approach to the condition, with players allowed to choose between a whole host of stalkers, ranging from resentful to predatory and running the whole gamut of disorders including delusional, schizoaffective and paranoid.

"It's been my only happiness since I have been prevented from seeing my dear love Reese Witherspoon" said one stalker "and it brings me great comfort to know I will one day be playing the game with her and our lovely family".
