    Its something similar to the accusation that GTA makes players more cruel and maniacs...............why does people blame the technology? its their fault not the computr's!!!

    If you could really die "from" extended computer uses... Bill Gates would have been dead a looong time ago, lol.

    Poor BILL GATES, always accused of everything....he doesn't program WINDOWS he just tell them , do that and they do, then he get money...the bugs aren't his fault...if anything, it's MICROSOFT as whole @ fault.

    said that, i am happy BILLGATES is around, without Bill Gates we wouldn't find somebody to make fun of :D

    I'm sure Bill Gates gets to pick his programmers, if he spent the money and hired decent programmers, and did a complete re-write of Windows, then we'd have a bit better OS.

    This reminds me of how heavy metal music gets blamed for someone committing suicide.. They always find something/someone to point their finger at... If only they'd admitt to the reasons these problems really happen.

    Yeah, it sounds like this bit of news was promoted by "yellow Press" as a piece of sensationalism, to frighten idiotic parents and make them pick up the newspaper.

    Anyone who plays for that long has a very pathetic life.

    Ooops, this is not he best of places to utter such "extreme" views my friend.

    12 hours too much? Never!

    P.S. Then again the same could be said for anyone who works 12 hours a day while his/her family is falling apart.

    well i've played stronghold 1/2 for 24+ hours straight and still lived to tell the tale, i think the problem lies on the individual and their body genetic make up, "well maybe" :)

    well he might have been a skinny kid but he died of a stroke flashing lights and all that doesnt help his condition. who knows if games where the cause, if could have happened anyways and it just happened to happen while he was playing games for 12 hours straight. easy to blame games, it always has and always will
