February 7, 2012The Game of Death
I enjoy playing games although I’m not obsessed enough to really be considered a gamer. When you have a good game going on, it’s hard to step away especially when the action heats up. Some people would sit for hours and don’t take a break. In an internet café in New Taipei, China, a gamer played “League of Legends” and died
there without anyone noticing for nearly nine hours.
The thing I don’t get is that the people around him didn’t notice that he was laying there unmoving for the last nine hours? How sucked into a game are you that you don’t notice a guy drops dead next to you? I mean seriously! LOL!! The gamer was reported to have been diagnosed with a heart condition back in September and died of blood clots due to the lack of movement. I guess clicking the mouse and keyboard don’t really count as significant movement for gamers. That’s a really crappy way to go.
