And this is why I don't play Madden or Soul Calibur

"We presume the cause of death was heart failure stemming from exhaustion."


From playing video games for fifty flipping straight hours. After having "recently quit his job to spend more time playing [video] games."



  1. I haven't played Soul Calibur (yeah it's spelled 'calibur' for some reason, unless the video gamers that made it really needed some proofreading)...yeah I haven't played it in 2 days! Your lil news report kinda hit home...I told my sister about it and she was stunned too.

    Amazing how we become zombies to the very things we create.

  2. it hit home? honeychild, how often are you playing these games?

    dude was a zombie, plain and simple.

  3. Excalibur. now i remember. when i saw the commercials, i thought that the spelling was intriguing.

    but in no way more fascinating than super mario bros.!

  4. No no, I'm not a game junkie. We just got the game like 2 weeks ago. I get bored after like 20 minutes. My focus is too shifty to be addicted to anything electronic. But yeah...the story was an eye opener.

    I feel bad for him though...maybe if some human beings just gave him some decent attention, he'd still be around.

  5. relationships are symbiotic.

    but i agree. technology, along with modernism, has made it easier and easier for us to be self-focused individuals. our focus needs to be on people around us, esp. those who are just lost - i mean that in a social, not religious, sense.

    i need to work on that, still. it's the anti-social grown-ups i have a hard time with. i just feel uncomfortable around them. i think it's best, and easiest, to reach them as kids/youth.


Be kind. Rewind.
