This is a discussion on Teen collapses after 4 day marathon of MW3 within the Microsoft forum, part of the Multiplatform Talk; it's the kids own fault of course but the parents should have noticed how the kid was doing health wise ...

    As a parent I would blame it on the parent but also the kid because over the past few months there has been a number of deaths to people playing video games for an exceeding amount of time and I myself would expect any gamer to read and check out those threads because it relates to them. Parents don't always assume your in your room playing games you could be doing practically anything with the door shut so it goes either way.

    Both the kid and the parent are to be blamed here, but the parent is mostly to blame. She took his Xbox after he collapsed? What was this woman doing while her child was in his room for days only coming out to get snacks? Then again he's old enough to know when he feels thirsty so I really don't know what to say about that...the kid needs help.

    Anyway, I wonder how long will it take the press and certain organizations to blame it on COD.

    I'd say both. Him for being stupid enough to do that, and the parents for never checking up on him.

    Apparently you're not going for the Missile Command world record any time soon.

    Why should someone be to blame for this? Did he die? Nope, he did not. Do we know the situation? Nope, we know crap all about anything since the story lacks any real info. The kid, through unknown reasoning, went on a huge marathon session. If he had called Guinness or Twin Galaxies about some record attempt this entire story would be shed in a different light.

It's so shitty that it's a mystery how people still play it. The parents are clearly to blame here, but the kid is messed up if he can play CoD for 4 days straight.

    I blame both. The parents are absolute incompetents for letting something like this happen, and the kid should have known better even at his age. If he was six, maybe not, but fifteen year-olds aren't quite as dumb as folks make them out to be.

    There's not really any excuse for this; no one was holding a gun to his head and telling him to play. This is idiocy at its finest.

    Mass Effect: 25 || Mass Effect 2: 44
    Mass Effect 3: 15

    He's an idiot the parents are idiots pure and simple. My child gets cranky after 2 or 3 hours gaming she knows it and stops and we do something else and she's only 10. Any parent that allows this to happen needs to check their priorities. The game he was playing is irrelevant 4 days isolated in a bedroom is not healthy and probably indicates some other problem so I can also sympathise with the boy. Then again he could just be a Dick. Most surprising thing about this story is the staying power of the Xbox.

    With the greatest of respect i disagree with you there mate.Im kind of thinking your not a parent and if you were you wouldnt have said that.I used to play FF7 for hours but my mum always used to say when it got a bit late to turn it off.Playing video games is great but when you go into the realms of sleep/food deprivation,enough is enough man.The parents are obviously to blame here and this is the kick up the arse they needed.And i (being a parent myself) would not have let it go that far.

    You are correct i'm not a parent. But i will start off by saying this, I'm also 15 and my parents put no limits on my gaming time. I have done gaming sessions up to 72 hours straight, and I'm going to have to say I've turned out fine. I'm a Straight A student, on Student council and a Member of the golf team at my high school. So i see no reason why there is any problem here for this kid. Why can't he spend his time doing something he enjoys rather then something he doesn't find fun?

    I blame both. In an age of 15 you should know that a 4 day marathon of.... pretty much everything ISN'T FUCKING HEALTHY!!! Of course I blame the parents too for being stupid parents, who doesn't engage enough in the teens life. Luckily the teen is going to be fine, and this will hopefully teach both the kid and the parents a lesson (and maybe some other parents too).

    Simple. It's unhealthy. You may think you're doing just fine(straight As and such) but you didn't mention health. Even a perfectly healthy person will be affected by sitting like that for too long. I'm not trying to gang up on you or anything, but it's just worth mentioning the "health" aspect.
