    I don't know about you, but even at 15 my parents would have encouraged or flat out made me put the damn controller down beore severe dehydration became an issue.

    I don't understand how you can do that for 4 consecutive days nonstop without having the damn common sense to at least eat and drink. Seriously, it's not that hard to take a sip of water and not even put down your controller.

    These people are just stupid.

    Exactly. The parents are just as guilty.

    For the parents to disregard their child for 4 days and be like whatever? Wow...

    What happened to going to the hospital for something you did outside? :crazy: 

    Physical inactivity is a major problem, along with bad parenting.

    Kids still play Modern Warfare 3 and manage to not get tired after 4 days? It's a Christmas miracle to know that someone can last so long.

    You'll never be a pro-tier gamer until you learn to eat an entire pizza, chug 3 red bulls, and poop between one round ending and the next starting.

    I'm a total casual because I'll take a break to eat dinner.

    Well, lucky for him, he survived.

    This whole thing reeks of bad parenting. How the hell do you let your kid lock himself in his room for 4 days. My mom would have barged in there, turn the TV off, slap the controller out of my hand, and then slap me for not having enough common sense.

    My Father Would Have Kicked The Damn Door In, Grabbed The Controller, And Would Have Thrown It Down The Stairs And Slapped Me In The Face So Hard...Ah..The 80's

    How the hell can you sit on your ass for four days? I'm a long distance driver and after 4 hours I gotta take a break.

    Standing and/or lying down?

    Honestly his "tolerance" to pain makes him a sort of superhuman.

    Pef, It took me 12 hours to beat that game.



    Anyways.....why couldn't he take a break every once or twice. Even the dumbest people would take a five minute break every hour or so.

    Because of some stupid kid's lack of common sense?

    Anyway, I know a lot of Asian games have a "Please take a 15 minute break after every hour of play" warning at the beginning of a lot of games. I wonder if we'll start adopting that as well (I know it's not gonna be much help, but still :p )

    Stupid kid, doesn't have the sense to get up and eat and drink at 15? I was always hungry at that age. And what kind of half-assed parents allow that shit? They both should be kicked in the crotch by enraged Clydesdales.
