How come every blizzard game has this effect? I always see threads like this, SC2 comes out and a korean kid collapsed with a heart-attack. I imagine with D2, SC1 and WC3 came out the same deal happened.

Oh! We can't forget the elephant in the room named WoW. It apparently is used as a torture--rehabilitation device for chinese prisons.

Does anybody realise that those killing games always have a very well implemented skinner box?

 

Make a game, put a gear grind with lots of small loot pinatas and kill 10 koreans. Let Blizzard do the same, their game kills 10 koreans, 5 westerners and addicts 12 million people worldwide.

Now he gets to play Diablo for real!

I have no sympathy for him, or anyone else who is foolish enough to attempt to do this to themselves. I am sure he was loaded up on mass amounts of energy drink/pills/coffee, which pushed his heart over the limit.  The world is now short one more foolish person, and I will weep not one tear.

Diablo 3 is pretty shittastic, I wish I could get a refund on my copy, but sadly its a boxed copy and in canada they usually don't let you return pc games once opened due to cd-keys and such. The gamne was a piece of shit, we waiting what 10 years and this was the best they could do? Thankfully torchlight 2 is on the horizon and its a far better game than diablo 3 can ever hope to be, I was in the TL2 beta and it didn';t bore me, unlike diablo 3 where I can't stand more than an hour of the game because I start falling asleep. D3 is honestly horrifically boring even for a hack and slash title. All you do is mindlessly grind since you have no decisions to make about your character at all that would actually stick and matter, if I wanted that kind of gameplay I could play a korean devved mmorpg instead, and said korean mmo most likely has more char customization than diablo 3 ever will have.

Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:

A. Proven right (if something bad happens)

or

B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)

Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!

Just to reply about people sometimes not realizing they might have had heart attacks before with symptoms like chest pain and excessive breath. There are also cases where this happens in panic attacks and people go to the hospital thinking they are having a real one (it happened to me) as some of the symptoms are  "shared" with the real thing, but in these cases people are "fine" and not having a heart attack. Just letting my testimony  for people that are slightly hypochondriac;).

 

As for the topic itself not much to add, but I expect if someone is willing to go 72 hours full gaming without sleep, stuff like this can happen. I guess if fhe perosn was not so lonely peraphs someone would have already stopped him or tried to. The story is very sad but diablo and gaming overall is not responsible for this.

While your post has nothing to do with the thread, my advice to you does. Don't rage to much, you might get yourself a heartattack...

Back to the topic, it was just waiting for something like this to happen. While tasteless of me, I sometimes get the idea that people are starting to see 'dying from gaming' as an achievement too. 'Must get that world first!'

EDIT: Not to say that gaming is to blame here. Could just as well been a marathon of As The World Turns that kills someone. Might have to do with the quality of that particular show then

I find it interesting that it only takes like 2 nights of no sleep before your body starts to shut down and you risk dying.

I mean, I have skipped nights of sleep as well sometimes, being awake for like 48 hrs or so after a night's out and still full of caffeine and red bull or still high on a great night out with dancing, concert, girls and just plain fun.

 

To think that 1 more night of no sleep puts you on the risk of dying... kinda sobering. I've had times that in 5 days I maybe slept no more than 10-15 hrs max.

I did the full 48 hours no sleep thing once and I am never doing it again. It's like you're violating every single cell in your body :D

well, technically it very much does. sitting for prolonged periods of time causes blood stasis. not sleeping causes increased cortisol levels and sympathetic activity, which increase blood pressure. assuming he did not drink enough, or drank Redbull/caffeine, this caused dehydration and further sympathetic firing. so we're talking increased blood viscosity/clotting, increased work on the heart, increased blood pressure - the perfect recipe for a heart attack, even in semi-healthy individuals. most likely, the caffeine and blood stasis did him in the most.

while D3 didnt physically reach out and clot his blood, D3 was the drug that caused him to sit there and die.

I guess all those fat people can sue mcdonalds now for making them fat.

 

He's a grown ass man and made the choice to sit there.

Just like how drug users do it themselfs, how alcohol users do it themselfs.. gaming is adicting, and it can cause death in extreme cases.

-I- am adicted to online interaction and gaming, -I- had a hearth infarct  on 13  february this year,  at that time I already was seeking help and still am in the long slow process of it, however I do sport these days and game far far less then I used to.

point is, gaming can be dangerus and like every type of substance or behavior we use to supress reallive it can get out of controll were the game(s) dictate youre live and you as a person have no choise in the matter anymore, you need someone to drag youre ass away from the game in order to break the circle (or end up in hospital like i had)

Untill developers start adding more time controll limets these cases will come up from time to time and these are just the known media covered cases. as whit mine ,there are far far more people adicted to gaming and online interaction then we dare to admit. 

so for youre own sake, stop pretending its the peoples own faulth and admit that these kind of uncontrollable adictions that causes deaths exisist , it might save youre live one day since admiting that a problem might exsiste is the first step to solving it.

 

ps: i was a very very healthy 34 year old,  health issue's are not the cause of these common hearth attacks/infarts.

basicly anyone who sits longer then 4 hours whitout moving gets a dice roll ,do this often and you get two dice rolls , if you roll a 6 youre dead.. tempt fate or get of the chair for 15 min.. that is a choice..when not adicted yet ;)

Even you are right in many points, he actually did cause his own death in this case.

- He got offered help from the outside and didn't wanted it

- He even got offered a free pass for a gym and didn't wanted it

There is only as much as one can do to help in some cases cause you can't chain these people away and force them to stop against their will.

So it was his choice to ignore all warnings and his choice lead to his death.

Many games nowadays are having notifications that are asking you to take a pause.

Heck even Guild Wars 1 had one that reminds you every hour to take a pause.

Digimon Masters online even let you only play for 3 hours straight and locked the game from you for 24 hours after.

People whined left and right and would rather quit the game and harm the developer through it instead of be thankful for such a action cause such a system takes away their right of choice or own decision.

So one can blame games as much as they want but at the end of the day, everyone is responsible for his/her own actions.

Many people underestimate the follow ups of such a behaviour with comments like "sleep is overrated" or "I can sleep when I'm dead lol" or another classic one "I'm still young and can take it".

All these comments are taking place till one day the reality bites them on their own butt and shows them that none of these comments are actually valid and that sleep is really needed cause no matter if you feel it or not, your brain and body are  taking damage when you lack on sleep and causes issues on your "system" without you even noticing.

So a huge PLEASE to everyone, take breaks in between, sleep and try to go around unhealthy eating/drinking behaviours.

Drink enough water and skip a red bull or coffee (2 cups of coffee per day are ok if you have no testinal issues and if you follow up with 2 cups of water after the coffee).

Have fun, enjoy games but don't forget real life is there too! :)

Sitting still in from of your computer or TV for 72 hours without any sleep surely didn´t help but blaming the game is rather silly.

they time lock your game or net connection... the big brother control state is coming...

 

They already do that to some extent in some Asian countries following similar problems over there. You have to go to their website and tell the company you're an adult before they'll remove the time limits.

You already get a warning every hour or so on NCSoft games, wherever you are, advising you to take a break. Though they don't force you and it's only a single line of text - not too intrusive.

Mmm, siding with Diablo on this one. As horrible as this is going to sound, if you die from playing a video game nonstop for 70+ hours, it's probably in everyone's best interest that you're no longer contributing to the gene pool.

I fear I have to agree. Your body is your own responsibility and since we are all induviduals making laws about it make no sense.

We just have to take care of us, that is the definition of being a grownup. Having big brother do it is not a good idea, or we all would become giant babies fast.
