62. Far too young. He had just retired the year prior. Of course, I am not blaming the game for his heart attack, as he lived an unhealthy life-style. Sitting at the same spot in front of several computers for many hours playing computer games is certainly a contributor, as much as lack of excercise and poor diet. I had spoken to him a few days before his death and he said he hadn’t slept in his bedroom for weeks, opting to fall asleep on his sofa in front of his computers.
Very sad. RIP.
You know there has been cases of players going on until dead of exhaustion? No sleep or food for days, then pop.
