I read in the news today that an eighteen-year-old Chinese gamer died as a result of playing Diablo 3 for THREE STRAIGHT DAYS (40 hours)! He books a room in an internet cafe, and plays the game for three straight days. This is not the first video game associated death. Last one was a 23-year-old who died from a marathon session of League of Legends.

Needless to say these marathon sessions are quite stupid. Why people need to finish the game the day it is released, is beyond me! But my biggest question is, how did the parents, family, or friends of this kid not know where he was for three straight days?
