Horrifying Games that killed people in real life
Here are some deadly games that killed people in reality:
Legend of Mir 3:
In a MMORPG incident with seriously messed-up real-life, in Legend of Mir- two players Qiu Chengwei and Zhu Caoyuan earned a very rare Dragon Sabre sword in-game, but in 2005 Zhu sold the sword on eBay without consulting Qiu. The earning was around $870 from the sale, but they couldnt come to a reasonable agreement as to proper disbursal of payment for the sword, so Qiu stabbed Zhu to death in his sleep. After that Qiu was sentenced to life in prison for 15 years.
EverQuest, a game also called EverCrack or NeverRest by many of its dedicated fans, it’s an MMORPG known for easy addiction, it also catalyse the formation of support groups for people whose relationships suffered from their partners addiction to the game. Shawn Woolley was one of the few gamer who took his EverQuest addiction to extreme in the year 2002, he even quit his job to play full-time. After that he ignored a thanksgiving invitation from his family, then one day his loved ones found Woolley dead in front of his computer from a self-inflicted shotgun wound—with EverQuest still running. Woolley took his own life for unknown reasons, but it was assumed that it may have been related to a troubled in-game relationship.
Berzerk is one of the video game that leads in actual death. In April 1982 an 18 year old boy named Peter Bukowski made couple of high scores on Berzerk arcade, cabinet before collapsing from a heart attack, due to a compromised cardiovascular system which was agitated beyond repair by the game. A video game magazine posted an article in 1982, about physiological reaction to video games stress in which Dr. Eliot mentioned that one out of three people have dramatic physiological reactions to mental stress. While not enough data has been compiled to determine whether video games are dangerous for these people, there is plenty of evidence to suggest that too much stress is connected to heart disease and hypertension. At this point, Dr. Eliot, who is being consulted on the case of Peter Burkowski, has no comment.In any event, if you play the games to relax after a long day, think again. If youre a cardiac patient, you might want to stay at the bar. In Dr. Eliots lab, he stops the game when a patients blood pressure gets too high. Unfortunately, Peter Burkowski was never given this advice.
Imagine even FarmVille can turn evil in the wrong hands. A player named Alexandra Tobias, a 22-year-old mother, was so much addicted to the game that she shook her three-month-old son to death in 2011 because his crying interrupted her playing. Tobias, sentenced for 50-year prison for her actions, she confessed to a fellow inmate that she hit her babys head against the computer monitor in the process of trying to shake him into silence.
Slender: The Arrival:
Slender: The Arrival didnt exactly kill anyone, but an obsession with its main baddie influenced a few impressionable young girls to do some insidious things. In May 2014, two 12-year-old girls from Cincinnati, Ohio stabbed their classmate 19 times, believing that they had to murder someone in order to appease the mythical villain (and antagonist of Slender: The Arrival as well as its low-budget predecessor, Slender: The Eight Pages).
World of Warcraft:
A Massively multiplayer online role-playing game, or MMORPGs in short. It has a reputation for attracting people with addiction problems, and some of them have sacrificed real-life experiences and responsibilities in order to live into a fantasy world. Story of Rebecca Colleen Christie offers a worst-case scenario: she spent such an inordinate amount of time playing Warcraft that she allowed her three-year-old daughter to starve to death. Prosecutors found that Christie had just engaged in a nonstop 15-hour WoW session prior to finally calling 911 for her daughter, who was found unresponsive. She was subsequently sentenced to 25 years in prison for the crime.
Ingress is a mobile app that requires you to get up and move around which seems like a great idea—until that app sends you directly into traffic, as it did to Gabriel Cavalcante Carneiro Leao. While playing Ingress in 2014, the 16-year-old Brazilian teen lost track of his surroundings while heading to a portal in the game, and was subsequently hit and killed by an oncoming bus. While Ingress has built-in limits to prevent certain unsafe behaviors, like features becoming unavailable while moving at high speeds, there was nothing to stop an absorbed and enthusiastic kid from walking into a busy street. They also didnt help Frank Maxwell, a 48-year-old father who drowned near a pier in Ireland while playing the game in 2015.
The Nintendo Wii was still hard to get in the US in 2007, so the Sacramento-based radio station KDND decided to run a contest giving one of the consoles away. So the challenge was drinking an inordinate amount of water without urinating, with whoever leaked last will win the Wii. Jennifer Strange, a participant in the event, but she returned home after failing to win the prize.
Unfortunately she collapsed and died due to water intoxication. The station fired ten employees and lost a $16 million lawsuit.
These are some of the games that has to be played sitting at the same place for very long which is life-ruining, so you have to get up and move around sometimes.
