It is not common for me to post about gaming-related deaths and accidents, but the way this unfortunate gamer passed away is something I would really like to share and warn you gamer folks about.This Taiwanese man was playing League of Legends (LoL) for 23 hours straight in an internet cafe (or cybercafe), and no one was aware of his death till a couple of hours later.

As you can see, his whole body is frozen in a fixed position, with both hands apparently still holding on to the mouse and keyboard. There were around 30 other gamers around who were oblivious to his demise, each engrossed in their own games. Without pointing fingers at anyone, League of Legends Taiwan was having a 400% bonus IP event for a couple of days during the wee hours.

A pack of medicine related to heart attack was found in the deceased's belongings. I urge everyone, be it you are healthy or currently suffering from some illness, to take appropriate breaks after a few room-based games or after a couple of hours of dungeon raiding.

Sorry if you didn't like what I posted or someone else already did. I just wanted gamers to take caution of it

This is really unfortunate.

However I think it's unreasonable to say that it was the gaming that caused this, it was most probably a chemical interaction with his heart medication.

Be it consumed energy drinks, alcohol, whatever.

I mean, the gaming itself for long periods of time won't kill you.

The refusing to eat, sleep, drink, shower or defecate won't be good for you though.

You sure it has nothing to do with Trist, maybe she wanted to shoot something

(the original article had a screenshot of him playing Trist)

That certainly beats dying of old age where every day becomes more of a chore to wade through, with increasing pain in your limbs and joints, becoming more and more dependent on others, and with no outlook on anything except perhaps a fictional afterlife that you cling to with a desperate hope.

No, if I had to choose my own death then this would be my way to go. A LoL marathon!
