New story in the news about a South Korean who collapsed and died after a 49 hour marathon starcraft session. And we thought WE were hardcore. All of a sudden I'm not in as much of a rush to get my new char to lvl 99.

Thats not new.. I've known about that for a few years.. yeah apparently he played 49 hours straight, went up to go to the bathroom and collasped. Perhaps 49 hours is a little too extreme.. I mean, what do you get from playing a RTS for 49 hours straight anyways?

The news sources are reporting this as a new story. Perhaps 49 is the magic number, if indeed it is the second time this has happened.

A few years ago there was a guy in a town about 200 miles south of Soeul who died after an 89 hour gaming marathon. He's the guy who went to the bathroom and got deeds.

Different times, different guys, different events.

I just heard about a couple that went to a WoW gaming event thing and forgot about their child. When they got home, the poor kid was dead. :(

Wasn't that a month or two ago?
