A 32 year old man had died of heart failure after playing nonstop for three days. Now I don't actually fear any one of us suffering the same fate, but man does that make you think or what?
This is why I love sports games; after 9 innings or 4 quarters or whatever, you're compelled to take a break.
I'm surprised that the cafe owners actually let him stay that long and never attempted to kick him out, that just seems really bizarre to me. In the U.S. there's no way anyone will let you stay in an internet cafe for that long.
I also recall a story about a guy in South Korea who died after playing WOW for 50 hours straight in an internet cafe, I remember thinking "why on earth wouldn't the cafe owner kick the guy out? who lets people stay in an internet cafe on the computer for that long?"
I have no idea how on earth people have the energy to play games for that long without collapsing from exhaustion, the longest i've ever played in one day is 9 hours, and that was with multiple breaks in between.
