A young Chinese girl nicknamed “Snowly” died after playing the online game “World of Warcraft” for several continuous days during a national day holiday. Snowly’s friends, who share the same game community, said that she was always connected to the Internet.  Several days before Snowly’s death, the girl was said to be preparing for a relatively difficult part of the game and had very little rest. She told her friends that she felt very tired. A big online funeral was held for Snowly one week after her death. The Chinese government is now seeking to instate a gaming curfew, limiting sessions to three hours at a time.
