One of the worst things in video games is the ole’ ‘Game Over’ screen. It also happens to be a dreaded part of real life. A gamer in Taiwan is dead after going on a 40 hour marathon of Diablo III.

The gamer known as Chuang rented a room at an internet cafe, and went crazy. According to reports he didn’t stop for food or water the entire time. He must have really wanted to get that check point.

An employee at the cafe found him passed out at the table. When Chuang woke, he began to walk, and then collapsed. He was later pronounced dead at the hospital. Pretty crazy. It’s like he got a bonus life, and then blew it.
