Lengthy Play Time Syndrome
They say too much of a good thing can be bad, and while gamers would probably disagree when it comes to their beloved medium, we have some truly sad stories to tell that support this claim. Such as the devastating end to Chen Rong-yu’s 23-year existence, which ceased at the end of a 23-hour session of League of Legends. Chen was dead for 9 hours in an internet café before anyone noticed. There was also Lee Seung Seop, who collapsed and died after almost 50 straight hours of Starcraft, and a Defense of the Ancients player, Rustam, who had a broken leg and died of thrombosis after a 22-day gaming binge.
