DEATH ATTRIBUTED TO EXCESSIVE GAMING


CBC reports that a 28-year-old South Korean man has died after gaming almost continually for 50 hours. South Korean officials say that the man (who apparently quit his job in order to have more time to play games) is presumed to have died from heart failure due to exhaustion.

There must be more to this story (for example, was the man suffering from bad health to begin with?), but it serves as a reminder that all things, including video gaming, are best taken in moderation.
