It has emerged today that a young Taiwanese Diablo 3 gamer has dies from playing the famous game for 40 hours in a row without a break. The boy is from Taiwan, and was found dead in an Internet cafe on July 13th in the afternoon. The cause of death was said to be he’s heart having been completely exhausted from lack of rest and sleep.
The boy decided also not to eat for approximately 2 days in a row and was named as Chuang. That being he’s first name as he’s first name is not to be disclosed to the public. This will surely make Blizzard think about putting a time setting on the game to prevent this horrible tragedy from ever happening ever again.
Chuang was found in the Private Internet cafe which he was staying in as part of he’s accommodation, a staff member found him on the 15th July and gave him a quick nudge of the shoulder. Then Chuang reacted by standing up all dazed and took just a couple of steps and then suddenly fainted to the floor. He was then immediately rushed to the nearest hospital where he tragically died later that day.
Many people on the web are saying this could have been prevented easily. The fact that the Diablo 3 game is not going anywhere fast and can be played whenever one wants, is really complicating the mindset of certain individuals involved with the game.
