My cousin had a cardiac arrest last night while playing doom 3. He is in stable condition so it is possible for this game to send you into heart failure. Warned!!!!

We were all sitting there and all of a sudden I figured since we were all laughing that he was messing with us. He started jolting and moving back and fourth like crazy in the seat I figured he was going to let out a big laugh. Instead he continued on with this seizure, then face first into the keyboard. I was in complete shock over this, the entire family is in an uproar his heart isn't that strong as it is and this just pushed it over.

This can happen with any game. Just looking at a TV screen or even Game Boy screen can do this to you. It is very uncommon, but it has nothing to do with the game itself. I don't know if this is affected by everyone or just some people. It also could have been for a completely different reason. Who knows, I'm no doctor.

i am sorry to hear that. It could be that your cousin was very edgy and when something scary happened(like a imp popped out) he had an heart attack.

The game set it off I figured he was mad since he died and was throwing a fit but this was not normal the moment it kept going for 15 seconds. I realized somethings wrong my other cousins went nuts they called 911 it was a huge mess.

its only about 3% of people who have fits are caused by flashing lights (watching TV, Playing games etc) what are effected by seizures most of the people are effected by something wrong with there body like mine i have kidney failer and for the last 3 years ive had fits and in march this year they found out that is was my kidneys what caused them

oh i had 1 while playing on the computer i was in on my own when i woke up i was half on the bed and half on the floor and hurt my neck realy bad

but soory about your cousin
