Can You Die From Playing a Video Game

A person who is meek and does not drink or eat while playing a video game for 40+ hours could faint, but how could he actually die.

I've heard other instances of this occurring and it sort of makes me a little sick.

I really don't think it had anything to do with video game?

I think that people who play a lot of video games for many hours at a time die because of health issues. The man was 18, that's the only thing I don't understand. It is quite unusual for someone of that age to die.

im thinking not eating or drinking water enough times repetitively and online games having your stress levels too high for a along enough period of time could kill you. taking a toll on your body through stress and malnourished and then giving it one last hardcore 50+ hours gaming sesh would surly stop you dead.

i played socom2 for one whole summer, got about 8 hours sleep a night woke up and played from 9-11 in the morning till 3-4am the next morning. roughly 17 hours a day non stop for 3 months, i ate while i played, but got 3 meals a day and sleep.

I know one thing within the earth you cannot die from playing games on the PlayStation, the console itself is a life force that guides and protect us from stress that is in the real world. Maybe we can die from other gaming systems but not the great and mighty PlayStation 3 console

There's a possibility of dying *while* playing a video game, I doubt that you seriously could die due to the fact that you're playing a video game. However if you play non-stop, and forget to nourish your body (food, water, etc) I can see you dying because of neglect, and a bad mindset. Not necessarily because of the video game, just bad judgement, choice.

If you don't eat, sleep and drink, yes.

I have almost tipped over backwards in my chair while trying to fight something that was attacking me. So I guess if that happens you could smack your head on something.
