There were reports of a man in his 30s just dropping dead after a three day gaming binge in some internet café a few days ago. Strangely the games he played havent been mentioned yet :)

You can read a little more here. http://mmorpg.com/discussion2.cfm?THREAD=148577&bhcp=1

I dont know if its known yet, but there have been alot of deaths like this lately. I still have no idea how someone could die by playing games,but still its sad. :(

Sorry if this is irrevevant, close if necessary.

It's probably cause they're on for waaay too long and forget all about water, food and sleep. Its really sad tbh.

/\ You dont eat. You dont drink. You dont sleep. You dont go to the loo. You keep your mind awake at times it needs most rest.. :rolleyes:

Still, people shouldn't be like this.. :(

But three days? I thought the human body could go longer that that without water etc. It seems really odd to me.

All these online games provide people with the addiction due to the rewards that they can achieve by playing more and more. Sadly some people do sacrifice their health and wellbeing just so they can get that extra level.

^ I dont think it was mentioned that it was an online game he was playing, although you're probably right, these things can be SERIOUSLY addictive.

World of Warcraft caused the most number of deaths, I think.

It can.. cuz 1) you get dehydrated.. meaning you need water fast or you die quickly..

2) when you dont go to get rid of your poop and pee, it stays in your body and rleases toxins.. You die quicker..

Sad, alittle, but I mean how does anyone play a game for 3 days? (if I read it properly) I mean I can play for a few hours but days! No way, not for me. Games are great everyone once and a while but addiction to anything is bad.

Theres usually a connection to asians when it comes to hardcore gaming as they tend to center their lives around it. Introducing them to the MMORPG market is about the most harmful thing you can do to them.
