Lucky he was only hospitalized. A Korean? kid died from playing too long.
I need to start playing video games apparently lol.
I'm afraid i'd get hooked on transformers or a combat game.....
FEEL THE POWER OF DROID!!!
i never have been able to grasp the playing all day straight. i play couple of hours of it and i am bored ..
"The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?"
Everyone seems to be blaming the parents, but I blame the kid.
Seriously, this is a 15 year old, not a 4 year old. At that age he shouldn't need his parents hand holding him for basic stuff like staying hydrated, eating, sleeping, etc. What he did he did of his own volition. Plain as that. The consequences of HIS actions was hospitalization. His parents should be checking in on him *you know to make sure he isn't dead or something*, but having to do the above is pretty much overkill for someone his age.
I hope the parents don't get too penalized for their sons lack of judgement. At his age, he needs to take responsibility for his actions.
Who teaches that responsibility? If you were never taught how should you know? Yes he SHOULD know better, but where were his parents? Sometimes people forget that if there is no guidance a child will not pick up what we consider to be common sense.Originally Posted by tjk629

^^^:thumbup: also.. people develope at different paces... some 15 year olds now don't have Common sense...
Heck, most PEOPLE don't have it.. which leads me to wonder.. why is it called common sense when so few have it??
I make my son go for walks with me, I make my son get out if his room.... I make my some associate with people..
We're screwing ourselves by allowing our kids to become couch potatoes.. that's partially why we have an obesity epidemic.
May I also say on this note... BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU POST IN THIS THREAD, WE DON'T WANT OR NEED A THREAD DISCUSSING PARENTING.

Wow. I can't believe that. Poor kid, yet if he has no sense to take a break, well... I've had a lot of time on my 360, but not for multiple days straight. But I did nearly wear it out the first several days after Christmas. I hardly get on my 360 now but I still like to play a few rounds of Halo. And I'm getting into controller customization.
Oh, and FoxKat, I can't tell you how many bad thoughts (you don't wanna know) I've had run through my mind just a few years ago. They've been more tamed since my senior year in HS, a lot has to do with maturity, but I've never acted upon those thoughts. Despite what thoughts I have, I'm still a civilized and nice (for the most part) human being. BUT, if you try to hurt my loved ones (I.e. family, girlfriend, close friends, etc.) I would have a second thought to either shoot you, or beat you to a pulp. And I don't think you'd want either to come from a 6'4" 280 lbs dude. Especially when pissed off.
