Because humans are bad at assessing rates of events objectively. We notice the shocking ones and forget the overwhelmingly majoritary non shocking ones.

Also there is selection bias. Most video games people are not old enough to die. So the ones who do initially are going to die will be outliers who are surprisingly young.

Finally, our data sources are sparse and unlikely to be comprehensive and the sample size is likely to low to draw any statistical inference from it.
I am fairly sure that if one did the maths one would find out that everything is normal.

Many old timers have left us these past years, we just notice untimely deaths more vividly.
