Sigh... We Asians are too attached to our games.... A sad truth...

That's happened to so many gamers. People be up for 4 days straight and fall over dead. It's sad but it's as addictive like crack to some.

I know of a story of a dude who killed his mom cause she tried to stop him from playing games. Read about it over a year ago on this gaming forum I used to visit.

Sad.
 
Never really understood it, though. At most a few hours I usually get bored.

It was a kid who was playing Halo 3 and his parents told him to go to bed. He got the family shotgun and killed his mom and injured his dad..... they were Russians....

There was another incident where a kid killed his mother with a hammer. Or his sibling; I don't remember.

Thats sad.... Now he won't live to play Diablo 4.

Wait.... 40 hours isn't even 2 days. The human body can survive without food for a week and without water for 3 days at least. How did he die?

smh. It's sad. But it's hard to pity someone who rather play a game than eat and sleep, and dies from his poor decisions.

Who says he died from playing for 40 hours straight? The results of the autopsy aren't in the article, and he most likely had a preexisting condition.

Some people just have obsessive personalities, whether it's for games, gambling, drugs, or whatever.

I've never been able to understand this type of thing. I like video games, but I can only play for like, an hour or two at a time before I am bored with it. My brother, on the other hand... he neglects eating because he becomes so lost in gaming. Eight hours a day is normal for him. I just don't get it.

Then you must be cursed (or perhaps blessed, in this case) with a short attention span. Playing video games for long periods of time is all in the wiring of one's brain.

I like video games but these stories just scare me.

@YourNeighborhoodComicGeek: 40 hours of constant stimulus can "short circuit" the brain; which can (and usually) cause seizures and, in rare cases death (one Short in the wrong place and it's permanent lights out; literally, you just drop dead).

I'm an epileptic, so I know alittle about these shorts, but even regular folk are subject to them, should their brain be overtaxed.

That's just a possibility though. He may have already had some kind of condition that may or may not have triggered from playing for so long. Either way, conditions or no conditions, no one should play that long... ever. Hell, I get eye strain after an hour.

So tempted to make an Asian joke..

But, yeah, I wouldn't be able to do this. My max is 6-8 hours, and that's with bathroom, food, and water breaks.

My max is about 5 hours. It used to be longer than that when I was younger (but, I always took breaks). Nowadays, I don't have what it takes to play everyday because of other more important things in life.

The only way I can think of him passing is by a DVT (Deep vein thrombosis). Its bascially a blood clot that forms in a vein deep inside a part of the body. I've heard of similar stories about a kid who was playing Halo for like 48 hours streight. If your sitting/laying around for too long, the circulation in your legs slows down, and a blood clot can form. When you stand up, your blood pressure shifts and can push the clot into your lungs, heart or brain.
