SEOUL, South Korea - A South Korean man who played computer games for 50 hours almost non-stop died of heart failure minutes after finishing his mammoth session in an Internet cafe, authorities said on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old man, identified only by his family name Lee, had been playing online battle simulation games at the cybercafe in the southeastern city of Taegu, police said.

Lee had planted himself in front of a computer monitor to play online games on Aug. 3. He only left the spot over the next three days to go to the toilet and take brief naps on a makeshift bed, they said.
"We presume the cause of death was heart failure stemming from exhaustion," a Taegu provincial police official said by telephone.

Lee had recently quit his job to spend more time playing games, the daily JoongAng Ilbo reported after interviewing former work colleagues and staff at the Internet cafe.

After he failed to return home, Lee's mother asked his former colleagues to find him. When they reached the cafe, Lee said he would finish the game and then go home, the paper reported.

He died a few minutes later, it said.

South Korea, one of the most wired countries in the world, has a large and highly developed game industry.
I guess someone was addicted to games..

Yeah, we all know that VG are a plague for humanit; playing too much makes us die suddenly (it doesn't matter inf the guy was sick before even booting his computer),
we kill cops in the streets (GTA, RE and many others), we rape girls everyday (GTA-SA), and we can even become plumbers and/or pizza eaters by playing Mario
more than 2 hours in a row

I always wonderinged what a douche was... I thought it was another stupid insult street people had come up with =/.

CpU MasteR: Just because someone else's life differs from your own, it does not mean its not there at all. Though I think you were passing a joking comment.

As for what I think? I think the worse one was when this guy was using a laptop on a plane flight and when he reached his destination the heat of the laptop had cooked his legs.

Don't kill yourself that way as it gives anti-videogame people even more ammo than just killing yourself over a video game by conventional means
