Videogames - PAU 2015 Andalucía resueltoA teenager died at an Internet cafe in Taiwan after reportedly playing a videogame for 40 hours straight. The 18-year-old, who has only been identified by his first name, Chuang, had booked a private room in an Internet cafe in southern Taiwan. Chuang then proceeded to play the videogame for 40 hours straight without eating. The next day, an attendant went into the room where Chuang had been playing and found the teen resting on the table. The attendant was able to wake Chuang, who stood up, took a few steps and then collapsed onto the ground. He was pronounced dead soon after arriving at the hospital. Authorities believe the teenager may have suffered a heart attack due to sitting for such a long period of time. 
The video game he had been playing was of the role play variety and very popular due to its repeated scheme of killing the monsters, finding the treasure and then escaping from the beast’s den. What made it so addictive, particularly when it got to the end of the game, was the fact that repetitive actions are necessary to develop our character’s strength till you are able to overcome the boss level. 
Regarding the teen's death, the developer of the game said: “We're saddened to hear this news. Though we recognize that it's eventually up to each individual or their parent or guardian to determine playing habits, we feel that moderation is clearly important, and that a person's day-to-day life should be more important than any form of entertainment.” Chuang is not the first individual to die following a long gaming session. Last February, 23-year-old Chen Rong-yu was found dead after having played a videogame for 23 hours.

    1. Hola Anónim@,
      si te fijas el ejercicio comienza con la expresión "Do you think...", lo cual implica que se quiere contar con tu opinión.
      Cuando se especifica "discuss" se espera que tengas en cuanta los diferentes puntos de vista posibles.
      La composición sería pues, un "opinion essay" en el que en primer lugar expongas los diferentes puntos de vista y después concluyas con tu opinión personal.
      ¿Quedan aclaradas tus dudas?
      Un saludo y buena suerte :)
