GR - "32-year old Russell Shirley was found dead in his home over the weekend by his landlord and coworker. He suffered a heart attack after a three-day binge on Diablo III."
Yeah it turns out playing a game for 72 hours has adverse effects on your health...who knew?
Doing ANYTHING for 72 hrs straight is wrong.
even LIVING?OR BREATHING?
specially such a sub-par game like diablo3...
@da_2pacalypse just go home with your mama and play torchlight.
Not unless you have a tube in your tummy and a bucket at your butt.
Bah 48 hours and up is red flag territory. Heart can only go so long before crashing.
This game cannot be THAT good.
Sitting for multiple hours is bad no matter what your doing.You sit and build up a blood clot then move and have a heart attack are a stroke.
This is why PC gaming has such a bad reputation.
Risking your life away from a game - This is called "Dedication".
You spelled "addiction" wrong.
The question is- Did he drop any good loot?!?
you sir just made me giggle!!!! and i know i shouldnt
Awww its so terribly wrong but oh so right. Especially for this game lmao.
that's the funniest thing I've read in a LONG time.
I should NOT be laughing at this...
i play a lot of games but we all need to know our limits, you bought it the game isn't going any where get sleep go to work get something to eat go watch a movie go outside get some fresh air have sex take a bubble bath watch spongbob watch big bang theory watch some porn take dump or change diaper and finally don't die Shani: Thanks for reminding me
u forgot to take dump. :D
Livin the dream...
Watch Big Bang Theory!? Yeah, I rather die...
LoaMcLoa, your not a fan of Big Bang? Probably one of my favourite things on tv here in uk, but tbh without sky theres not much choice on freeview.
Add "By myself" to the ending of everything on your list and it all clicks together.
yey for mediocre life !
What a foolish way to die. i know, a person is dead and it's a tragedy. But he died like a fool.
I don't even think I could go that long without passes out through exhaustion.
So a guy in the comments on that site says it's all BS. He had health issues and did not go on a marathon binge of Diablo 3. Hope the hits to that lame ass site is worth it.
Stay away from this occult garbage. Cann't believe people would play satanic garbage like this. They have no fear of God at all.
These people are sick, why would you play a game for this long
I played the Guild Wars 2 Beta for over 50 hours last time they had a 3 day event. Won't lie, I would have played longer if my body allowed it. Hell, even hyped up on Redbull I was absolutely unable to resist sleeping. Theres definitely something more medically wrong here.
Right on! I'm in the same boat as you, man. Except I played the BWE for 35 hours straight with one tiny nap in between. Twas worth the time sink. Fantastic game.
I think most doctors would agree that "resisting sleep" is not conducive to living a long healthy life... I think most people that weren't complete idiots would say the same...
I don't get what's with my disagrees? The fact that I actually did the formentioned act that people think is absurd? The fact that I mentioned Guild Wars 2 OR the fact that I mentioned it was primarily a health related issue? I mean hell, the longest time spent awake by a human being (recorded) is 11 days, logically if the person was in any sort of good standing health 3 days would have done nothing drastic (maybe light hallucinations). For my reasonings? I'm at the Gym 6 days a week and sprinting on my day off. I deserve to let loose and game my ****ing ass off once and awhile. Especially when its for a very limted beta on a game that I've been waiting 5 years to play. Was worth it.
