Man Dies After Three-Day Video Game Binge

A Chinese man died after Internet gaming for three days straight, the Beijing Times reported Tuesday.

The unnamed man, in his thirties, had not slept, had hardly eaten and had barely moved from his computer when he collapsed and slipped into a coma Monday evening at an Internet cafe outside Beijing.

The man, who had reportedly spent more than 10,000 yuan ($1,500) on Internet gaming over the past month, was rushed to a nearby clinic but was pronounced dead a short time afterwards.

The story is too old to be commented.

Running away from reality
Into the arms of eternity
It's really plain to see
That sadness at some point took his life

Perhaps he did not meet a goal
Perhaps he did not feed his soul
Perhaps he lost control
And sadness at some point took his life

Maybe this was a cautionary tale
Too great a stake in games might fail
You could die in your own jail
Then sadness at some point might take your life
