    We are dedicated to creating games, not playing them like a lunatic.

    Uhh thats twisted, reminds me of the guy in the US who killed himself when his ally in everquest betrayed him and stole all of his weapons and treasure. Then there was this other guy who played it non-stop for about 40 hours and started hallucinating, walking around his college campus and kept seeing creatures an s**t trying to ambush him.

    Totally ****ed up. The worst I ever got was smashing up a joystick after ghosts n goblins crashed on the last level.

    Sorry about the ***'s it's friday night and I'm p****d.

    It's ironic, he lost his life without even having it.
    I'm not an addict to games, but I think sometimes I spend too much time in the pc (not like this guy of course), maybe I'll take this as a warning.
    This is MC. His _parents sent him to stop() by the super market to buy some _root beer if he wanted to gotoAndPlay() with his friends at the park later.

    50 hours? thats it, damn that guy would have died walking down the street if he lost all his living energy playing video games for 50 hours, I dont care what game your playing unless the objective is to m*s*e*b*t* as much as possible in 50 hours theres no reason for that.

    Lol, i was thinking the same thing. it said he even took naps. Im sure it cant have been just that which killed him. 50 hours is insane, but i dont think it would
    be THAT hard...would it?

    Computer games can keep heartrate and andrenaline levels very high, so 50 hours killing somebody doesnt surprise me at all.

    I just completed doom3 for the second time, don't think I played it for more than 2 hours in any one session, as thats when it stopped being enjoyable.

    Yeh but for him to play the same game means it was very engrossing and therefore stressful for him, imagine playing football for 50 hours straight without no sleep, like said before me his heart rate would have been very high throughout.

    I get ridiculously irate when watching Arsenal play and im knackered after watching for 90 mins, if a game went on for 3 or 4 hours I would die of exhaustion.
    If our body is a clock ticking away and if while we experience all that this world has to offer time has still continued to pass, are we living or just experiencing a slow death?

    There was a tv program on a while back, where the last person to go to sleep won. I didnt really watch it, but they were staying awake for some insane amounts of time. I think it was like 1 or 2 weeks, maybie more, and they had to do really boring things like listen to maths lectures, so i dont think that kills you.

    alillm, wholly freakin crap! Would you listen to yourself, "1 or 2 weeks", I hope you were exaggerating. I can't go without sleep for more than 30 hours, tops.

    Well i cant listen to myself cause im not speaking, just typing . And im not exagerating, cause i cant remember at all how long it was so its not so much exaggerating as guessing. But im pritty sure it was somewhere around that length of time (could be completly wrong though). It was pritty insane anyway. I will see if i can find info on it. Cant remember what it was called though.

    "A reality television gameshow that deprived contestants of sleep for a week and subjected them to tests including electric shocks has been criticised for exploitation."

    Haha, should have watched more of that

    I think that person must be really stressed out, not only for the reason that he has been playing the game continuously, but also note, he had left his job for this...
