Not a wind up folks. Russel Shirley was 32. That's thirty-two and dying of a heart attack while grinding at a MMORPG. That's younger than me! A pretty tragic occurance, and a timely warning to those who play gaming to an extreme level. Anyone who can't do 15 push-ups, walk for two miles, or climb a flight of stairs without getting breathless needs to get off gaming, for their own health, until they can do those things.

Its easy for people to put 2 and 2 together and make 5, people have heart attacks all the time.  People have heart attacks from playing sports, making love, arguing, being stressed and just pain walking down the street but if a gamer dieds, everyone tends to blame computer games.   If someone kills another person in the street and the said person plays games, it must of been the game.  In the 1980s movies used to be the scapegoat for all social ill's but since Doom, games are evil and bad for our young people.

This guy looks a little bit overweight looking at his picture, I bet he didn't eat the right kind of foods and didn't excise.

Probaly fake. You can get heart attack as fat as this guy is any time it wants. Its just a way of blaming games for XXX while this guy should work out a lot.

Bit disrespectful, but I would say, -6.

I think something like this had already happened to a WoW player in China, I'm not really sure.
Honestly, a fat guy having a heart attack can only be taken as a coincidence that he happened to be playing on the PC at the time, but I think that in this case, as much as I hate to admit it, I think he might really have overdone it...

Don't be so narrow-minded. You can interpret my post in four or more ways,

1) What level (number) his character got to. Diablo have 1 to 60.

2) What level (place) his character got to. Diablo have the High Heavens as the last level.

3) What level (difficulty) his character got to. Diablo have Hell and Inferno as the last levels.

4) What level (place) he (person) got to (based on the above). The High Heavens?

He probably got to the underground level.

Not surprising. Sleep is vital, and consistently skipping it will result in death, one way or another.

Longest I ever went without it was around 36 hours or something like that, and I have never felt so damned ill in my life. Never again.

Only 36?? My record is 43 and i was drinking all the time. Then around 2-3 am at a party in the 43. hour that i was awake i just colapsed, and fell asleep :Smile_veryhappy:

I got to say it was terrifying and fun at the same time :Smile_Default:

And just to say it, the both of us are pure amateurs compared to these guys:

"Randy Gardner holds the scientifically documented record for the longest period a human being has intentionally gone without sleep not using stimulants of any kind. In 1964—as a 17-year-old high school student in San Diego, California—Gardner stayed awake for 264 hours (eleven days), breaking the previous record of 260 hours held by Tom Rounds of Honolulu." - Wikipedia

Hmm, let me edit my original post like this
I may be being a bit disprespectful here to the poor deceased, but the level I think he got there was -6, as in 6 ft under :Smile_blinky:

Was not getting at you, sorry if that was impression.

Bloody hell. If that wouldn't kill me, I would certainly have killed someone near me - sleep deprivation creates psychos. :Smile_great:

Longest sleep deprivation I got was a bit over 40 hours, and yeah never ever again.
But eh, I was playing some awesome Civ4 MP game, so it wasn't that bad.
