    One time I almost got scolded by a bicyclist, as I almost ran into him while playing disgaea on PSP (yeah one time is not far away). But I guess he noticed that it was a seperated bike/foot way, and that he would have lost the discussion.

    then you just keep trying. it's like beer. eventually, it will take (you tell me how much you liked beer when you were 12).

    in the same manner, with time, and expansions, with addition of new characters, it'll take.

    yeah, they just die while playing video games, the same way people die when they are having sex, or mowing the lawn, when sleeping, or awake or while watching a movie, looking up at the sky, reading a book, at school, at work, playing football, running, walking, fishing, cooking, cleaning, washing the dishes, hanging out.

    basically, you live, then you most definitely die...

    and even if it was because of video games. one casualty. one and only....
    probably had all his bones atrophy because of lack of excercise.

    edit: oh, that guy probably had some medical condition on which the game acted as a catalyst. so he died. don't blame the game.
    heart failure. most definitely lack of cardiovascular excercise, anxiety, etc. with his schedule, im sure he was malnourished too.

    you don't blame the game...nyo nyo nyo~

    If you stay awake for 50 hours, concentrated, without enough rest and food, You may die even without "some medical condition". The human body is a wonderfull thing, but shouldn´t be abused.

    Man, that's one of things after a long holiday away from my PS3. I'm going to have to break in my thumb in again.

    Oh, and you can't die from sleep deprivation. After something like 85 hours your body kicks in with micro-naps. You fall asleep for a seconds at a time and don't even know it's happened. Yup. Also there are no long term effects of sleep deprivation. So abuse away.

    Sure you can die, if you have a micro-nap behind the wheel of your car.
