I say, it was his own fault for not taking the 5 minutes needed to friggin eat a bagel! Now, obviously this news will bring more people saying that "this is why video games are bad for kids". But my response to that is, the people who die from playing too much video games, would probably be the same people who die from something else back in the day.

It's not about playing video games too much, but rather, it's about self control.

This kid reminds me of a friend...Who said; When this game comes out, I'm going to no life it, cap, and pvp all day!

He did.

Diablo 3 wasn't even that great, in my opinion. What killed it for me, was the constant spam of error 3007 that was not fixed for over a week.

None of these things should be enough to kill you, there's probably something to it we haven't been told, or he just got very, very unlucky.

I believe this happened before with a story about someone playing WoW for 3 days and dying, then it surfaced that they had heart problems anyway. It makes a better story if you say that a video game killed them.

You just simply can't die from not eating for 2 days.... Either it was dehydration, or some hereditary medical issue.

As for dropping dead playing video games, so what? People drop dead in the middle of far less entertaining activities every second of the day. In fact in the time it took me to write this, 107 people died because we're currently at that many deaths per minute globally. What are the chances that of those 107 people any of them spent the last 48hours of their life having fun?

@ Zetaa-Nu, i have spent a ton of time on my computer, laying down, sitting down, standing up and have NOT died yet.


@GodWhomIsMike, I agree with you that computers suck because nowadays EVERYTHING is due to technology, especially making ppl lazy.

Everything sucks today because of computers. I bet you without computers, there would not the degree of unemployment that we see today, or the degree of outsourcing that is done today.

I know that gaming can be an addiction, but I cannot understand how people can push themself that much for a bloody game. I also do not understand why nobody in that store stopped him. I mean the employees should have realised what he is doing. :/

Am I a horrible person for laughing? It's your own body, you've only got one. I don't care what you do to it, but some things that people do to their bodies are just so stupid I can't help but to laugh.

In reality it's "stupidity is bad for kids" ...these morons are eating spoons of dry cinnamon and seeing how long they can hold their breath or how many shots cause alcohol poisoning. They do deserve what they get. I don't feel bad for people who don't think.

.........Even planking has claimed lives by doing it in dangerous places... Stupidity has no limits with some people.
