This is just idiocy. Who in their right mind would skip essential things like eating, sleeping, going to the bathroom? Better yet, which video game is so much fun you forget to stay alive?

I can't play games for more than two hours. I actually stop after an hour if I'm not too carried away by the story, take a break, and come back to it after a while for another one or two hours if I have any spare time left. I don't play games everyday, and when I do, it's three hours at max, divided by breaks within that day.

Not that I have attention deficit disorder, but I just like taking it slow and games nowadays are quite short. Your long awaited games generally have five to nine hour campaigns, so if you're enjoying the game, there's no meaning in rushing your gameplay anyway.

And as you can guess yeah, I'm a single player guy.

I love games but you have to take care of your health. Really sad when something like this happens.

What's with these crazy people and their gaming marathons? Seriously, some people need help.

RIP to that guy.

Goes to show how strong the human mind is... but not necessarily how smart it is.

Heard this on the radio and they said it was Black Ops II he was playing. Not sure if its fact but that's the game they mentioned.

Also, this is the third Taiwanese gamer to die this year from marathon gaming, the other two were Diablo III related I believe.

of course all these "gamer die while playing" i have read, none of them mention what game/s they are playing. i find that odd, seems like only rumors to what game/s

Another productive member of society falls victim to Darwinism.

The game didn't kill him but it is the ROOT cause of his addiction which inevitable lead to his death.
ZBlacktt  +   860d ago
So death was by video games. Yet, this before the autopsy is even done to state the cause. Inb4 he was taking drugs to keep him up for days....

Maybe it was the chair that killed him.
overrated44  +   860d ago
And....this just proves that Darwinism is still a thing.
jjb1981  +   860d ago
He must've been playing minecraft
acemonkey  +   860d ago
i love it how they say he died....he was addicted to video games....the body will go to autopsy to determine the exact cause of his death...

I wonder what would drive someone to do this. Is it mental illness? Or did he just need a friend?
profgerbik  +   860d ago
When the reality around you sucks bad enough I am sure you can easily let yourself die literally while playing a game.

Better to die in a reality you enjoy eh? People don't push themselves to dangerous points like that for no reason, he / she probably just hated life and loved the escape he / she got from games too much for their own good.

Rest in peace, you are a in a better place now one without humans hopefully.

Somebody never had to worry about get out of the house go to work daily? pay rents? etc.. just gonna sit and play games days and days until dead?!
knifefight  +   860d ago
Why is this tagged with "Casual Games?"
A man played until he died. If that's not hard core, I don't know what is.
Dogswithguns  +   860d ago
Wow. sorry dude.
ajax17  +   860d ago
I read that way too fast! I thought it said they found his prostate in his chair o.O
YoungPlex  +   860d ago
This is exactly why the Guinness book of world records gives people a 10 minute break for every 60 minutes of gaming, or the person could save those 10 minutes and build them up and use them all at once for some type of rest,(4hours of rest for every 24 hours). It's crazy how some people think that the body doesn't need rest. God have mercy on his soul...
Plagasx  +   860d ago
I don't understand this...are they saying he died?
TBONEJF  +   860d ago
R.I.P YOUNG GAMER. When I used to play games non stop was like till 1 am used to do it a lot with no breaks or sleep. but now after realize i'm pushing my body to the limits i play less now so i can get some sleep. not every one can just go play and try to get the high score or anything else. your body needs REST and food. sad day in gaming i tell you

Sitting too long causes the blood to clot and it probably traveled to his lungs or heart. Sad to see another story like this, gaming isn't that serious.
mt  +   860d ago
don't blame the game blame the brain.
gemugurl  +   860d ago
Jesus christ.... what was he playing tho
sdozzo  +   860d ago
At least he wasn't found with his belt around his neck and pants down at his feet.
