Simon Parkin con Death by Video Game: Tales of obsession from the virtual frontline

Whether it's Space Invaders, Candy Crush Saga or Grand Theft Auto, video games draw us in and don't let go. In Taiwan, a spate of deaths at gaming caf�s is raising a question: why is it that some of us are playing games beyond the limits of our physical wellbeing?

Death by Video Game uncovers the real stories behind our video game obsession. Along the way, award-winning journalist Simon Parkin meets the players and game developers at the frontline of virtual extremism, including the New York surgeon attempting to break the Donkey Kong world record; the Minecraft player three years into an epic journey towards the edge of the game's vast virtual world and the German hacker who risked prison to discover the secrets behind Half-Life 2.

Investigating the impact of video games on our lives, Death by Video Game will change the way we think about our virtual playgrounds.
