Student lab in college. Poor kid died of a heart attack. He was Korean too.

I like computer games, but - work and marital commitments aside - I don't think I could do 50 hours. And I never go near any those Class A drugs^H^H^H^H^H games like Everquest.

Me and a friend would do this during summer break of high school - playing Empire on the Atari ST for days straight. Fun times, really. I can't imagine doing it as an adult, though, not to mention that I get bored of things much quicker now.

<<Lee had recently quit his job to spend more time playing games>>

i think that's the saddest part of the article...

might be a good indie movie in this?

3. Only 50 hours? What a wimp. That other guy went 86 before he collapsed.
