This is funny, this whole story seemed familiar to me till I found this....
www.foxnews.com...
LoL look at the date on that one. September 8 2007.
I know china has alot of people but this is almost the same story... Hell the picture is almost the same.
Wondering if its just a slow news day. You know there is really nothing going on in the world right now... So lets just redo news we already reported on 4 years ago. No wonder we are so bass ackwards here in this country, we get spoon fed garbage from the media daily and eat it up. This isnt news its a distraction...

so the cyber cafe never closes? the owner let a guy sit there for 3 days playing? he probably died from drinking 5 hour energys for 3 days straight. made his heart go boom. the body odor alone would have been enough for me to ask the man to leave if i were the owner.

i mean imagine if a casino let someone play the same slot machine for three days straight. accountability. i think the owner shares some of the blame here.

The game in question was the open beta for RIFT which is a new MMO that is like Warcraft (you can see the ads all over this website btw) A very enjoyable game but the fact that this guy did this for a BETA is even more baffling as those charactures get wiped on launch.


the 1500 was probobly other so called Free 2 play games that sell buffs in their cash shops,

Now I play mmo's, in fact I was a participant in the same beta but sometimes you gotta put the mouse down.

It's nearly impossible to sit there for 3days straight. (For a healthy normal person who eats and drinks daily).

You would have to get up and pee or get a drink. Your body would FORCE IT.

Sorry, I'm calling hoax. Maybe the guy really died, but like 99% of this story is being left out.

You don't understand the addictive power that some games have. "Just this level" or "Ahh, I'll turn it off when I get here". When I was younger I could play all day, regardless of the time or other bodily functions. Thankfully I was only allowed on the playstation for a certain amount each day

I have been on a video game binge for 20 years man.

I don't think you realize who you are talking to here. I'm a professional.

Is that real?



Oh yes it's quite real.


Um nah it's not...
If you check this particular kid out he has quite a few 'tantrum' videos around, based on various things... one was when hjis father gave him a 'truck' instead of a car or something.

It's all put on in this case..

Can't believe it's still going around as real.. haha

uhhh jibbyjedi, i hate to tell you this, but that kid who tried to cornhole himself with a phone was totally faked. he admitted on national TV (Tosh.0 on comedy central)


I've seen everything Stephen related, and Tosh and Bill O'Reilly both say he faked it, Tosh was trying to talk him into admitting it actually. That kid is a lost cause, he isn't smart enough to think up that kind of stuff. Watch all his interviews, and if he doesn't remind you of at least 1 gamer you know, then you don't know any hard core gamers.


Rofl...

It's real.. It's Real...

Well it's close to real!! And if that isnt good enough, you aren't trying hard enough!!!11

Dude, no one said there aren't idiots out there, just that when you said this was one, you were wrong.

Oo

this actually does happen, and as long as that person is wagering money the casino could care less. I've seen meth addicts pass out asleep at the video keno machines numerous times.

Meh. Rift is a clone of WoW. I have been in beta since it opened.

Maybe RIFT is the next big thing so they are laying the groundwork for demonization.

Agreed, its mainly due to an health issue then a gaming related issue, afterall people have stayed up to 3 days straight before.


governments , and corporations are also looking to ban video games,and they will look for any excuse that will help them in doing so.

I am a former game addict so I have some knowledge on this subject, and some games did start making me act way out of character and inside the realm of sanity. I call these games - visual stimulants, in combo with some pointless level chasing scheme which turns you into a giant hamster on a wheel cranking out hours and dollars playing them online.


Sorry but before you post other lies in you anti-video game binge: most of these videos are fake, the one you linked to is fake, the angry german kid is completely fake as there are several versions of the video with different overdubs (from Unreal Tournament to Quake 3) and he made it just for fun to see what reactions he got.

And you don't die from 'too much video games'. That person clearly had some health problems.
I remember the days when we made the LAN parties, they went on for 3-4 days, with barely any sleep,sure we eat and drank enough, but you can 'survive' something like that without any problems.
And most people who play video games have a life, a real life. All those cliches are ridiculous and one should wonder why such extreme cases only happen in Asia.

PS: All the hate for video games on this site is quite ridiculous.


HAHA what? I'm lying? Are you reading things your imagination saw? I know people exactly like the boy in the freak out video, identical personalities, and he isn't faking he really is a spoiled little monster.
Some people call things fake because it seems fake to them, they have no experience with people like them so they can't identify with them in the real world.
The angry german kid was a real kid reacting to his Unreal Tournament game, I also know several gamers who react EXACTLY the same, it's real reactionary impulses to some games.

You have the free will choice to not believe anything you don't want to believe, but this world is full of people who do insane things.



No they're fake, which can be proven with a few google searches.
Most people well versed in memes know this.
You may know some people 'like' this, but those videos are fake.

Nor sure if commented on yet but damn. Sure they might censor the internet, but if you're about to spend that amount of money gaming in a cafe, shouldn't you have your own setup?
