You Dummy: Teen Hospitalized After 4-Day X-Box Binge

Picture only moderately related: different brobro.

A fifteen year old in Ohio was recently hospitalized after playing Modern Warfare 3 for "AT LEAST" four days straight. His mom (if you can even call her that after letting her kid play video games for four days straight) says he just came out of his room and collapsed. Damn that's some shitty parenting!

She says he became very pale and his lips turned blue.


"I was very scared. I thought he was going to die," she tells WCMH. "He just fell over three times."

Rawlins, who says Tyler had only left his bedroom to use the bathroom, pick up snacks and take a quick shower, adds that both have learned a lesson the hard way.

LOL @ "both have learned a lesson the hard way." Because neither one of you ever considered that maybe playing video games for four days straight was a BAD idea? The old "you don't know until you try" method of learning. How do you feel about playing in traffic?

Thanks to sarsbars and Bradley, who agree if you're gonna play video games for four days straight you better f***ing be stuck inside of TRON.

    To be annoying. Some forms of ADD can actually cause SIMILAR problems and even deaths... Although with the ADD form it's unlikely they even go take a shower or get food... Not impossible however.

    It's called Hyperfocus, It's part of ADD as I mentioned. Not saying it's this kids problem, just saying that it's a possibility for other deaths that seem similar to actually be caused.

    I personally have ADD and got "stuck" in hyperfocus learning how to program websites, for 3 days i didn't eat, drink or sleep. My wife got pissed and started yelling and well everyone knows a pissed off women will bring you out of any trance...

  • It should take weeks not 4 days.
    What a noob!

    4 days of dehydration is the limit. Check.

    I feel parents should be a bit more involved in their kids lives to prevent things such as this. In a way to encourage them to go out, make friends, and have a life outside the house. The occasional 1-3 hour session a day with video games is okay.

    I played a pc game for about a week. Granted I took time to have a bowl of cereal in the morning (while playing), showered (maybe) and when to bed at night. I didn't faint. I did start to hallucinate though. LOL

    There's a news video with an interview of the kids mother at :

  • Thanks to this story, I scared my 13yr old son straight about playing too much video games.

    Perhaps it's becuase he's young but I was always under the impression that as long as you eat and stay hydrated you can forgoe sleeping, albeit not without side effects like micro napping and such but just collapsing is harsh, I totally agree must be meth

    I do have to give him credit, at least he showered.

  • Pretty impressive, but he was probably using performance enhancing drugs... like meth...
