People are freaking out about video games now..

Some kid played Halo for 12 hour periods and ended up dying from deep vein thromboses.. It is a sad story because y'know he's dead now and all over a game but now people are going crazy and are trying to take games away from their children. If you're going to sit around all day and play games you should at least take a break and walk to the kitchen or something? I've played World Of Warcraft for longer than 12 hours in the day but I'd take a break and go for a walk or something, anyways I just wanted to get that out there. R.I.P dude and I hope people chill out about this and just take a break every couple of hours.

  11. Poor kid, but his own fault to be honest. Take breaks...but there's no reason to punish everyone else.
