    Those are some of the more bigger MMORPG/online-gaming enthusiasts on the planet. I don't know if anything will rival their passion for Starcraft but WoW is sure getting up there!

    They say that lack of sleep kills you faster than starvation. This makes me believe it.
    Last week i had 7 hours sleep in a 54 hour period.

    I don't think it's really playing video games. I would say it might stem from the fact that he focused on one activity for three days with only stops to the restroom. I could read a book for three days straight and probably end up not-so-good, heh.

    He probably had more problems than just his gaming addiction.

    I've only dared to go 24 hours without sleep. I'd probably overdose on caffeine before I died of staying awake too long.

    There have been a few gaming related deaths now, I wonder which is the most dangerous to play ?

    I actually kind of hate video games. I mean, working is more fun - and seeing one's adsense account making hundreds of bucks per day is even funner!
