Another man in China took just 20 hours of playing non-stop for him to collapse and die, also at a cybercafe. Also in China recently, a couple have sued Blizzard Entertainment, maker of the highly successful game WOW, over the death of their son. They claimed that their 13-year old son leaped off the 24th floor of a high-rise building in an attempt to re-enact a scene from the game."

Okay la, no offence to the small lil gurl, but its rather stupid to sit inside the cafe just for the sake of playing online games, and for the one in China, who jumped from the building, its even more stupid, as you see, smart gamers like me, Blue439, AnNeS, LoverGirL or Jtan, they don't play their online games with their hands, bot saje la! what for wasting time and money sitting infront of the pc? Bot or without bot, you get the same kind of fun when u have guildwars, too.
