A Taiwanese man has died after a three-day gaming binge at an internet cafe in the island's south, the second such case this year.

The 32-year-old, identified by his family name Hsieh, was found slumped in his chair in the cafe in Kaohsiung city.

Other patrons initially thought he was sleeping, but when an employee realised he was not breathing he was rushed to hospital, where he was pronounced dead, the Taipei Times reported.

The case came after a 38-year-old man was found dead at an internet cafe in New Taipei City on January 1 following five days of video game bingeing.

My money was on the guy being Korean.

Does that make me racist? Or someone who has spent enough time gambling with Asians to not be surprised

Looks like I need to cut my video game binges to 2 1/2 days or less for safety.
