Another long-playing gamer dies in mid-level. Once again the setting is east Asia (Taiwan), and the game Diablo III.
The poor fellow
booked a room at a cafe in Tainan on July 13 and spent almost two days playing the game without eating. On July 15 Chuang was found resting on a table; after an attendant woke him up, he took a couple of steps before collapsing. He was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at a hospital.
I've been hearing some of these stories repeated in the US. Perhaps this will add to the roster.
