It seems like Asians have a problem with epilepsy, this isn't the first I've heard of something like this, and I've never heard it happen to Caucasian gamers...
Because we have control...okay, we don't.
MAYBE HE SHOULD HAVE TAKEN A SLEEP MAYBE ONCE A WEEK?
Jeez, it's not that great of a game.
Maybe it's because so many Korean players play sorceresses (for their uberness), and they're always casting spells and stuff ...
i find it hard to believe that flashing light can kill you... i've played diablo2 for long periods.
Oh dear maybe I should get a life.
I don't have any visual problems like that, but I've had some back and shoulder problems because of sitting in a weird position for several hours killing people. :minigun2: :minigun:
I wont go so far as to say garbage, but lets say that the chances of someone dying from sitting in front of a computer playing games are akin to the chances of getting zods three games in a row. Technically it's possible, but really now...
Computer screens are rapidly cycling light sources, which COULD lead to seizure in some people that already have a predisposition to seizure activity. These chances could be elevated by extended periods of sleeplessness, and/or mind altering substances (including excess caffeine). BUT, most likely even if you did have a seizure, it would NOT be fatal unless you happened to be SO unlucky that you fell over on your back getting blunt trauma or choking on your tongue. Again very poor odds.
It's MUCH more likely that he died from a stroke, heart attack, or some other vascular event. The only way I could tie that into game playing would be sedentary lifestyle, which promotes athersclerosis, or possible sitting for excess periods of time could lead to venous stasis causing him to throw a blood clot (this is a stretch). Anyway, all of these are remote. I do however agree with the following statement: "computer game enthusiasts should let their eyes rest for a few minutes every hour" but more to prevent nasty headache than death.
if there was any truth to the "flashing screen induced death" thing then secretaries everywhere would be suing like lamer bisnatches. :megarolleyes:

Did you make that cow? awww how sweet.
servebot is teh win. My team for Marvel vs. Capcom is Megaman, Servebot, and Hyato. the most unlikely team ever. I always lose.
i just beat megaman 1 for NES. i gots an emulator weeeee!
Hook me up with some linkage, I can't find a good emulator anywhere...or is it a mac-only thing? If so, no biggie, I'll just look a bit more.
//edit: And Megaman I was the ONLY ONE I couldn't find for rental, the place up the road from me only had 2-6 and all the SNES ones.
the program is use is for windows, called jnes. i download the rom files for games on kazaa. just search for gamename.nes
Kazaa always ____s up my computer, and after about the fourth time I use it, I either uninstall it or format my machine but the Megaman Series is worth it...WIN!
Uh, maybe because it's so full of spyware?
I know that, I've heard of spyware in a lot of programs. What does spyware do though? Look at passwords and files, etc? Steals em and stuff?
