Second gamer dies after massive binge on vnunet.com (thanks Larry Sayers) reports that a "27 year-old Taiwanese man collapsed after playing computer games for 32 hours non-stop" in a cyber cafe in central Taiwan. In spite of their headline, this is actually the third such incident we've heard of, as it is reminiscent of a story a couple of weeks ago about a death in a South Korean internet cafe (story), but also another similar incident last summer in Thailand (story). According to the story: "A police spokesman stated that doctors believe Wen-cheng died from exhaustion, having remained in the same position for too long. The death highlights the danger of such intensive game-playing."
