A mom called the cops because one of her kids was obsessed with playing video games:

Do you think this was a good case of video game obsession, or was the Mom just going a little overboard here?

That's definitely an overreaction on the mother's part. It's her place to stop the kid from playing the game, not the police's. Playing a game at a late hour is not a crime and there's nothing the police could have done about it if the kid wanted to keep doing it.

From the quote about wanting to run away, I think there's a lot more to this story than just a kid that plays games at night. There are likely several other factors that contribute to the mother's frustration here.
