I better switch off my PC right now.
Seriously, not too long ago I saw a report about these computer gamers from South Korea. There are regulary "mass-gamings" and the winners of these sessions get famous as music stars. They get sponsor contracts from big software companies and they have their own fan clubs.

A couple of months ago I read about two Chinese teenagers who collapsed on railroad after playing 24-hour strait. I've heard that Chinese authorities have put up restrictions on how many hours your are allowed to play every week.
I had a Chinese classmate last year..and the dude used to play online games the whole night...then sleep during the day. So I guess it's no big surprise that a few of them end up dead as a result of that...but seriously though those guys need to stop playing so many damn games. I wonder if that guy's family will sue the game developer...heh
