    Hey now.  Seriously?  You didn't know him and that comment was entirely uncalled for. 

     

    This just makes me feel sad if anything, and especially someone so young.  He was just starting his adult life and who knows what he might have done or accomplished.  I sort of get where you are coming from in that this kind of obsessive behavior is really strange. 

     

    But with an attention span like that, I have to wonder what he might have accomplished if he put his effort towards something a little more productive.  Thats what I think every time I hear of someone dying from playing a game for 2 or 3 days straight.  I can't pretend to understand it, but I can sympathize.  Even for the family. 

     

    To loose a son in this way?  I have a son.  Id vomit for months if it happened to him.  To loose a life like that?  Just for that? 

     

    I think people in this society are just getting a little too bored.  Really though.  Nothing out there seems exciting.  Everything seems explored, everything seems done, and they escape into an alternate reality because the one they live in isn't nearly as exciting at all.  Its just sad.  All it is.  I cant say the world is better off without that guy.  Because he obviously wasn't involved in the "world" anyways.  God bless him.  This is just sad, nothing else. 

    Substituting "God bless him" with "may the gods bless his soul" I thought pretty much the same thing.

    To all those here posting that the world is better off without people "like him".

    We are all gamers, you people make me sick just thinking this way.....it's just sad to see an 18 year old young person losing his life over a hobby.

    I wish the family alot of strength in this hard time.

    We all know it and Game dev companies always tell you to take a break every hour or 2 of gaming.......game smart, dont let a videogame be the end of your social life or like this young one.....his life period.

    I been awake for 48 hours straight many times, it is tireing but not that bad. My playing straight n a row was 18 hours in Lineages beta and that was ten times as bad as 48 hours awake.

    For some reason computer gaming is just worse when you play a long time than working or playing P&P RPGs. It might be because it is easier to forget eating and you take fewer breaks or something.

    Also, sitting for long stretches of time is very bad for you in a number of ways. You're probably less likely to take a break from a videogame (if you play like a fiend) than when studying or with friends.

    Why are these things always from an asian country mostly around china, fucking chinese governemnt and their propaganda. They don't post how many workers die from exaustion or military excersizes but once every 2 years some idiot dies from starving himself playing a game and all of a sudden video games are satan.

    I can't believe they would let some one stay in there for that long. Would think there would be some time limit. This is sad on many levels...

    It is a bit odd, but then at the end of the day it is his fault for being so fking stupid.

    Never speak ill for the dead dude. Life is too short and karma hits back pretty hard.
