I can't believe the servers stayed up 72 hours straight for this to even occur in the first place.

Maybe he died because he realized the game was bad.

"Regardless of which part of the story is true, it is important to realize that taking a break every hour or so between long sessions of gaming is extremely vital."

lol Blizzard must be forcing us to take breaks :) (EDIT: This must be why the servers keep going down!) EXTREMELY VITAL to take a break every hour or so...

How long is a "long session"? If I play a 4 or 5-hour session, does that mean I don't have to take a break every hour or so? If I play a long 10-hour session, does that mean I should take a break every hour or so?

Whoever wrote that article is a funny little imp.

Diablo 3 didn't kill anyone since it wasn't a game that killed him. It was the fact that a man stayed awake for 72 hrs straight... the man probably wasn't in great health as well and I doubt he was eating well if anything. You wouldn't say "Couch Claims it's First Victim!" just because someone just so happened to die while sitting in a couch.
