Video Games Can Kill

from the seems-a-bit-convenient dept

Okay, I’m not sure I believe this one. It was, afterall, just a week and a half ago we posted some of the absolutely ridiculous quotes from some folks in Thailand about the “dangers of computers”. So, it’s a bit strange that so quickly after that silly report there’s a report of a Thai man who was found dead in front of a computer after playing the video game Half Life all night and into the next day. Apparently, he had a stroke which they’re blaming on the game. The article says people all over Thailand are being warned about the dangers of getting addicted to video games.
