Kim Kyung-Jae (died 2002) is the first human being in history to die from literally playing a video game too much. According to publicly available English-speaking sources, he died of deep-vein thrombosis or DVT after playing the Webzen video game Mu for 86 hours in Gwangju, with pauses only to purchase cigarettes and to use the bathroom.[1] Although no medical report is available in English, it is worth noting that prolonged immobility as well as vein condition are diatheses that increase the odds of contracting deep vein thrombosis.
