    Ahh morrowind thats still one of my favorites.

    I know i didnt put anywhere close to like 72 hours straight on it. more like 30 hours.

    Oh and my ancient deadric armor of the gods (plug in) was great

    :D i created several plugins including one which put all items in my house

    i mean everything :D

    im trying to work out how to make them linked though so if i take a piece of armour out of one of my houses its out of them all,

    it'll take some scripting

    He must have had really bad parents. My mum and dad would never let me play video games for 5 hours continuasly, let alone 12! IMO you would have to be really sad to play games for 10 or more hours straight. Normally when im gamin I allways have a break after every hour or so at least.

    i played 16 hours yesterday Battlefield 2 and i'm still here fine and dandy. ;)

    Those that suffers a death from games, are prone to it and are like those that suffer motion sickness where anything over 1hour of gaming could lead to convulsions.

    That is true. Very well put imho. Gaming did not kill this kid, poor health did. You can game and lead an active lifestyle. No one forces you to sit in front of a computer all day, be a couch potatoe and eat burgers, fries, pizza, and drink sugar filled soft drinks....

    Actually one can die of dehydration in less than 3 days.
    It depends what you eat during that time. If you consume salty foods/snacks and not drink anything you are severly reducing your lifetime...

    12! 16! 24! 72!!! .... (speechless)

    The longest I have mastered was 7 hours straight playing Exile III.

    Anyone aware of the Exile trilogy from SpideWeb software?

    It was 2D but damn addictive.

    That's why GOD created BEER and FOOD, buy 24 beers and 2 huge PIZZA... :D

    Keep em next to you and go frag the bad boys, 15 hours play and with money back guaranteed there's no risk (apart from dying of too much burping from the beer) :p

    I´m a 13 year old. Played 4 days (15 hours a day each one) The sims 2. What a freakin' addictive game. At the 4th day, my 2 eyeballs were almost red. Too much gaming. I agree that boy had some problems, that he was a games freak. At least every 2-3 hours I take a rest, drink something, eat something, then go back on gaming.

    Yep, always take rest by looking at something far...i usually look at a small pic of my daughter on the wall and stare 2 minutes or so then go back.

    Another thing that makes a difference is LCD monitors, i own a Samsung LCD 17" and LCD monitors don't suffer from flickers like CRT ones as such you are less prone to eyestrain and can hold more time staring at it and play.

    I think the boy didn't own an LCD, but i still doubt it would save him....the problem lies in his own body so it snapped. :(

    I dont own a LCD, actually, Im happy with my 8 year old viewsonic e41 15' (13'2 viewable) at 800*600@85hz. At 1024*768 it can only run at 60hz. I used the 10*7*60hz all my life and never got eyestrain. Strange. It's suppossed to flicker, but it doesnt.

    Nothing kills people better than annother person, nothing can teach someone how to kill someone better than another person, nothing can teach a person to want to kill someone better than annother person.

    With that said... This happens time and time again, the next big thing is the "cause of death." How stupid do you haver to be to really believe all this BS?

    Now the kid was 12, right? He played games for about 12 hours, right? And had a stroke, right? I bet he had epilepsy, "brain pathology..." lol, of course all that flashing and crap would screw with him, DUH!!

    I have played sat infront of my computer for, the longest, maybe 2 1/2 days (48+ hours, and well multiple times), and this kid could only handle 12? gimme a break, there's obviously another problem here. After a week of maybe 6 hours a sleep and tons of gaming all I got was a mixed up sleep schedual, and red eyes, oh no...

    I love how they have these stories, and how it makes people think it's happening to exery single person, lol. It happened to this one kid... HE HAD A FIGGEN STROKE!!! Do you know what the chances of that happening are? My goodness, he's more likelly to get heatstroke while being outside for an hour while playing football... errr

    I have one thing to say... It takes less brain power, and well everything else, to watch a movie than play a computer game. I'm tired of this BS, **** play a game, stop watching the damn news... Yeah I'm sure it takes some real hand eye coordination to flip some news channels, drink yer beer and stare at the neewsladies fake boobs than a "silly video game..." ugh.

    Last, but NOT least: Um, so where was this kid's parents aye? I'm sure they could have kept him from playing 12 straight hours of VGs, lol come one!!! This is getting absurd. As I said, People get killed by People, whether they are there at the time or not; that kid's parents kill him, NEGLECT. Watch yer ****ing kid already!!!! HE's 12!!!!

    P.S.: Sorry I don't actually know the kid was 12, but still, it doesnt really matter.
