Following the big release of the highly anticipate World of Warcraft expansion, The Wrath of the Lich King, it was only a matter of time until somebody played the game to exhaustion. And it happened in Stockholm, where a 15 years old boy went into convulsions after playing for 24 hours straight.
The teen apparently suffered an epileptic seizure, although at the moment things are not clear. “They played all day and all night. Maybe they got a few hours of sleep. They ate a little food and breakfast at their computers,” told the boy’s father to a Swedish newspaper.
And this makes things even sadder, since the father new what his kids (and other five friends) were doing and he did nothing to stop them. Of course, he probably had no idea it could turn out that bad, but still… things could’ve gone far worse.
However, the teenage boy is expected to make a full recovery and probably learn a lesson and never play a game for so long, no matter if we’re talking about the Wrath of the Lich King. It would be sad to see worse things happen because of playing too much…
