Man dies. Online games blamed. Personal responsibility takes long, hard kick in the arse.
CNN is reporting that a man has died after playing online games for 50 hours "almost non-stop". The surgeon general has annouced a warning to all South Korean males who quit their jobs to live with their mothers so they can play online games 100% of the time that it might be hazardous to your health.
"After he failed to return home, Lee's mother asked his former colleagues to find him. When they reached the cafe, Lee said he would finish the game and then go home, the paper reported.
He died a few minutes later, it said." [Perhaps not playing the game killed him?]
