Now, here's the situation. In Norway, a teenager named Henrik Eide Dahl told The Local. "I was playing Call of Duty. Then everything went dark and I passed out." Dahl, 14, had been playing the shooter on his school's LAN with friends when, taking a break in the cafeteria, he collapsed. Rushed to hospital, his kidneys failed and he slipped into a coma. Turns out he'd consumed 4 litres of energy drinks to sustain the session, which far exceeds any kind of manufacturer's warning or shred of common sense. He ended up spending 13 days in hospital, and still has to take drugs to control his high blood pressure.
My question to that kid is this: How in God's name are you going to drink such amounts of energy drinks and play for 16 hours? Gaming is cool and all, but if playing for hours like that is incredibly dangerous. You know? Now, losing so many hours of sleep can be incredibly dangerous as well.
To all those who are physically sensitive and fragile: Drink water, get more sleep, and do NOT attempt to play video games for 16 hours. Find something else to do with your time such as watching movies and shows on Netflix, reading a book, a magazine, a comic book, or you know try to use your talents for something beneficial such as singing, drawing or screenwriting if you have that talent.
God Bless and Play Hard Gamers!
