18-Year-Old Dies After Playing Video Game For 40 Hours Straight!

| Filed under: Tech TalkSad Sad

Diablo 3 player dead after marathon

Not another one!

Last summer, a 20-year-old man passed away from a pulmonary embolism during a long marathon of playing Xbox. And now it's happened again!

An 18-year-old was found dead in an internet cafe in Taiwan where he had been playing Diablo III for 40 hours straight!

Although the cause of death has not yet been determined, authorities are speculating that sitting in a sedentary position created cardiovascular problems. Furthermore, reports say the teenager hadn't even taken a break to eat for two days during his marathon.

So sad!

This just goes to show that too much of a good thing is never a good thing. We understand that video games are a fun escape from reality, but avoiding reality completely while playing them is dangerously excessive.

Make sure your kids are getting up and getting some exercise in between all that time they spend on the computer or in front of a TV!

    Re: messygirl515 – Wish your Mom felt like you do - then we wouldn't have to endure your insesitive comments. Do us all a favor and use birth control - never mind your winning personality will never get you laid - so no danger of you diluting the gene pool is there- lol

    Oh well another loser in life gone. If you play a video game for 40 hrs straight that means one of two things: 1.You have no social life except in the cyber world 2. You are never going to lose your virginity except with a blow up doll. I'm sure he off to the thought of achieving the next level of elf wizard in World of WarCraft. These ppl are social outcast except in their small group. They are the ones that abuse animals, cousins, and have child porn on their computer

    Excessive anything inevitably leads to consequences, the most extreme being death. As a society we need to stop focusing on the substances etc people abuse and focus more on the motivations behind individuals developing deleterious habits.

    Re: alrightalright – why are you bitching? messy girl is right, if some tit wants to play a video game for 40 hours straight, then its his own fault if he dies. Natural selection at its best. Don't like it? Tough!

    Re: WastedWorld – Shut up idiot. Video games are a hobby, just like athletic people have OUTDOOR hobbies. If someone isn't athletic and don't really feel like rock climbing is fun, they play video games. A hobby is a hobby is a hobby.

    Who needs a social life? People are dumb, pathetic and primitive. As you have clearly pointed out. Friends just cause drama, talk about you behind your back and ultimately stab you in the back.

    Re: Alexander_night – Good point perhaps you should take up video games - speaking of diluting the gene pool you're a perfect example of that. If little narcissitic shits like you die off it will be a better wolrd. I'll even offer to buy you a system

    Re: WastedWorld – How on earth can you say that people that play video games are more likely to abuse animals, cousins (whatever that means), and have child porn on their computers? Those things are not connected at all; you've probably never read any actual peer reviewed scientific study that supports the crap you spout.
