A man in South Korea died after playing computer games for 49 hours without stopping for sleep or food. I’ve always said that I don’t play computer games because they are too addictive. I know too many people that have woken up with keyboard imprints on their faces.
But what do you do when computer games are how your friends socialize or network? What if it’s a world you want to be a part of? How long do you think it will be before you can actually enter the game? As opposed to participating through your keyboard? And if you can actually "enter it" through some type of virtual reality (VR) like William Gibson’s stories, do you think that people will start sleeping in VR? No matter how exciting our daily lives get we usually manage a few hours of sleep a night and we definitely eat.
