    I think the real tragedy is that he was playing on Xbox Live.

    The longest I played was 13 hours in a row, with the help of coop and alcohol. i did get up occasionally for a cigarette.

    Whoa wait.

    Cigarettes saved my life. If I was a non-smoker I could've been dead.

    So what's news worthy about this, there were guild wars players dropping like flies years ago:roll:

    In fact this spawned user messages in game that tell you you been playing to long and you need a break, as it lets you continue right along anyways;)

    Pretty much like most cases excess is bad. Ive heard of a few cases of hardcore players dying over the years; its mostly MMORPGS and its usually Asians, no racism intended its just based on what ive read.

    I dont know i bet there are loads of people who sit for ages gaming and survive but unlucky for some i guess.

    The question is, why would he have been up playing Halo all night if he had a job interview the next day? Priorities my good sir, priorities :shadedshu
