For the second time in less than a month, an over-enthusiastic gamer has died of exhaustion on the back of a marathon games session. According to a report on VNUNet, the Taiwanese man collapsed having played for 32 hours non-stop in a games café. Like the previous victim, a South Korean man who died after 86 hours of non-stop gaming, 27 year-old Lien Wen-cheng was found collapsed on the floor in the gents, and despite being rushed to hospital he was dead on arrival. A police spokesman blamed exhaustion from sitting in the same position for too long.
