Submission + - Man Dies After Playing Diablo III for 40 Hours ( 1

quantr writes: ""An 18 year-old Taiwanese man has been found dead after booking himself a room at a local internet cafe and playing Diablo III for 40 hours straight.

Identified only by his surname, Chang, the teenager reportedly didn't eat for two days, and was found by an employee on Sunday morning slumped over a table. After being woken, "he stood, took a few steps and then collapsed". Rushed to hospital, he was pronounced dead shortly after arriving.
While an autopsy is yet to be carried out, authorities suspect "that long hours in a sedentary position created cardiovascular problems", which would ultimately have led to his death.""
