I was just watching 'Weird and Interesting Deaths' on CI and there was a Korean gamer, I think he died in 2002, anyway he played starcraft for twenty straight hours, then he died. I'm sorry I didn't catch what he died from because I had to leave for dinner, but he was playing starcraft in an internet cafe for twenty straight hours with no break, no food and no water! I thought I was bad playing lans geez.

EDIT: Oh also the guy had just lost his job and had come back from a day at work so he would've been frustrated and tired, so he played starcrfat for 20 striaght hours, what could be better?

Did we learn a lesson from this? yes I think we have.
Don't play starcraft 20 hours straight without supply's (I'm not talking about supply depots xD) when ur sick

im pretty sure that he got a blood clot in his leg from the immobility and when he got up it went to his heart and caused a heart attack or to his brain and caused a stroke.

Yeah, In the intro you got to see the guy lying down dead on the floor of the cafe so most likely.

Ok, but why would the 20 hour guy be on TV when other persons have died after playing it longer? Seems to me that dieing after 50 hours of gaming is a ''weirder and interesting fact'' than dieing after 20 hours of gaming?

He slept, and it was weird and unusual deaths so this one was more unusual because he died from playing less and possibly a weirder cause, I missed the end bacause I needed to eat, I didn't want to end up like him.

It was probably nothing to do with lack of food, water or sleep at all.

Maybe he just died of frustration because he had a 20 hour losing streak to Planetary Fortress rushes and proxy Hatcheries.

There was a guy who died playing Quake (I believe) at a Quake gathering - he drank 15 "Balls" energy drinks and his heart just BOOM.
