Chen's family told authorities he had been treated for a heart condition in September. Police said they were still investigating the cause of death, but suspected that a combination of fatigue, lack of movement and the cold weather could have caused blood clots and a heart attack.

Chen was playing the League of Legends, an online multi-player battle game.

yes thsi si retarded but what's annoying is how the media will now make this a "video game related death" and use it as an excuse to be all preachy

he did NOT die from video games. he died from having a heart condition and ignoring proper logic to not put his heart to a test. If he had been doing something else such as bunjee jumping, running too long, eating a lot etc. it woudlv'e been the same dumb move, and still because of the same reason!

The guy didn't die from a 23 hour marathon of LoL, he died from 23 years of poor diet, lack of exercise and poor sleep schedule.

Even if he has a heart condition, if he took care of himself, you can do a 23-hour gaming marathon easy.

just looked at the photo again, there's a dead guy, and people in the other row of computers are still playing
