Like the previous story we released on the young teenager who died in a southern Taiwanese Cafe, the dangers of continuous gaming has reared its ugly head again, this time with a 15-year-old boy from Ohio. Tyler Rigby from Columbus, Ohio, reportedly played first-person shooter Modern Warfare 3 for an unhealthy 3 to 4 days straight, resulting in the young gamer being hospitalized.
The aunt of the hardcore Modern Warfare 3 gamer, Jennifer Thompson, told CBS who ran the story, “it’s like he was looking at me but he wasn’t there. It was like he was looking through me. We were talking and I heard a thump and I looked over and he just fell.” Rigby’s mother Jessie Rawlins also stated she was worried for his life, “He just fell over three times”.
It might be another eye-opener to the gaming habits of the gaming populous, even if the majority of people keep their gaming in moderation, some will jump the fence a tad bit and put themselves in danger of doing damage to their health. So take note kids, take breaks when you feel a bit tired.
