A 15-year-old boy collapsed after playing the latest WoW expansion pack Wrath of the Lich King for 24-hours straight. According to reports, the boy had some sort of epileptic seizure. The boy lived and doctors told his parents that the boy's body had been disrupted by sleep deprivation, lack of food and prolonged concentration.

The boy's parents say they will be limiting the amount of time he spends playing the game from now on and urges other parents to do the same. Doctors expect the boy to fully recover.

British authority's worry that young gamers could get addicted to the game with some psychiatrists saying children are playing the game 14 to 16 hours per day at times. Perhaps we should go back to the old school Super NES style game pads. You had to have thumbs of steel to play that system longer than a few hours straight without a break. Hey, at least it's not crack.
