Dead gamer sits in chair for 9 hours unnoticed!

A gamer in Taiwan was sat dead in a chair for 9 hours before anyone realized, apparently he took regular breaks in the middle of his gaming marathons so to see him not moving for periods of time wasn't unusual, I'd like to think my wife would notice if I hadn't moved for a while!

RIP

Of course no one noticed because they were doing their own gaming marathons. Quite sad really. It should be a rule that gaming cafes require a 10 minute break every hour or so, just to avoid something like this.

I agree, it is sad, although unfortunately not that unheard of in this region of the world where mostly young men do spend hours a day on their PC's, he was only 23 or something & apparently had a heart condition, but for this guy to go unnoticed for so long is a sad indictment.

it's sad 2 know how many ppl r wasting much of their life time on gaming only. gaming is fun but it's not a life style.

There's no reason to spend that much time playing a video game

I'd beg to differ.

Some people need to use common sense. Just take a little break every few hours. Even if its just a quick stretch.

It's a sad event, though. After all, someone died. And not just anyone, one of our own, a gamer.

I'm not surprised it happened in Asia. They seem to have a very different opinion on gaming especially when it comes to online games or they can actually play these games for a (decent) living, see gold farmers. We basically shouldn't judge these people, they live under different circumstances than we, they eventually don't have much of a choice.
