    Arrow Diablo 3 Gamer Dies Playing For 40 Hours Straight

    Death by virginity I reckon...I play anything for only 4 hours and I get exhausted.

    A young Taiwanese man from Tainan, Taiwan collapsed and died around noon, July 13th. The report indicates that the chap, around 18 years old, played Diablo III to the point of exhausting his heart after gaming for 40 hours straight.

    According to The Australian, the gamer, identified only by last name, Chuang, rented out a private room in an internet cafe and went nearly two whole days without eating.

    On July 15th an internet cafe attendee came into the room and found Chuang resting on the desk. After the attendee gave the resting gamer a slight shake, Chuang awoke and then stood up and then took a few steps and then collapsed to the floor. After being rushed to the hospital he later died.

    According to The Australian...
    They speculated that long hours in a sedentary position created cardiovascular problems for Chuang, the report said.

    Another Taiwanese fellow also kicked the bucket after buying the farm while engaged in an intense match of League of Legends. The circumstances were very similar, except the deceased, Chen Rong-Yu, suffered cardiac arrest.

    Apparently gamers are getting way too involved in these games and need to relax. Unless Blizzard's servers get hit with a stray nuclear missile, Diablo III will still be here today, tomorrow, several days after that and (presumably) a couple of more days after that, so there's no need to go all-in as if you have to play incessantly.

    Hopefully the parents of the deceased are able to cope with the situation, but at least his death wasn't in result of foul play.

    At least he went out doing something he loved. They'll prolly find me dead at my computer with some questionable pron site on the screen.

    Did that happen before or after he bit the dust and took a dirt nap?
