Teen plays Modern Warfare 3 for 4 days straight; is hospital

The game didn't hopitilise him. It was the dehydration. He chose not to take a break from playing and suffered the consequences.

May be there is a glitch in the game, may be he was hit by a bullet... and fell.

I can't believe his Parents let him play it for 4 days straight. When I was his age, I couldn't play an hour without my dad telling me how video games are ruining my life.

his mother says his Xbox will be confiscated.


The Xbox had nothing to do with it. It was down to bad parenting, and the kid not taking a break from a game he is too young to play. I honestly think people are using gaming as a scapegoat instead of blaming the people who are responsible.

Social services should take the kid away.

Substitute 'plays Modern Warfare 3' with anything else and you have the same reaction. Go on try it:

'stands on one leg'
'refuses to eat'
'masturbates'
This is the space where clever things gets said?

This is yet again another story where gaming is blamed when it is not the fault of the game. You do not have to play for that long and can quit whenever you want. It shows a lack of parenting skills in the kid's parents by allowing it, and they are the ones that the story should be focused on.

This is a great example...

...of parenting at its worse. If I have kids, sure I'll play games with them but I won't let little Timmy (he won't be called Timmy) play for 4 days straight without eating/drinking.

Then again I'd hope my spawn wasn't an absolute moron in the first place.

His mother should be absolutely ashamed of herself, she is a terrible mother, no doubt left him to it as he was out of her way.

But also the lad is equally blamed for being a total prat, he's 15 for f**ks sake. Should be more than capable of looking after himself at that age. We've all been there sitting playing a game starving or dying for a p**s but thinking I'll just do this bit then go and have a slash, an hour later you're still there :lol: but this is just taking the p**s.

At least the last one would have been more fun, well untill it dropped off, or he started puffing dust.

I love gaming, but 4 days straight, jesus. As many of you have said, Parents with lacking parenting skills are to blame, as is the numpty sat there playing the same rubbish for 4 days.

I am pretty sure the headline should have included the words "Bad Parenting to blame" or "parents buy child 18 rated game" or whatever

Unfortunately there's no tests to pass to be a parent.

She could pulled the plug. He might have been angry but she is the parent after all.
