When you play Diablo III, you go to Hell. But one player might have taken that a little too literally.
The Australian is reporting that an 18-year-old Taiwanese gamer, referred to only as “Chuang,” died after a marathon 40-hour D3 session in an Internet cafe over the weekend.
This isn’t the first time an overseas player has died while playing a video game in an Internet cafe. We earlier reported on a man in Chinese Taipei being found dead after a long League of Legends session, and a U.K. gamer died last year as a result of spending 12 hours a day playing his Xbox 360, according to his father.
As big as Internet cafes are in southeast Asia, nations such as South Korea are considering implementing a curfew to limit time spent playing games to four hours a day for gamers under 16.
