Gaming injuries WTF

Recommended Posts

So I been playing games since I was 3 years old, (thats just shy of a quarter of a century for those of you still bothering to keep count) and Ive suffered my first gaming injury.My whole left hand basically locked up from playing PES9, its basically cos the players wont flippin move and run fast when I tell them too so I end up pressing the directional pad harder to make them do it :angry: This is online only.So I went back to playing PES8 and didnt have these problems. I been hearing about these gaming injuries for years and making the regular wrist jokes about it and now I've fallen victim to it myself.But how can I, who's natural handset is in the "holding a controller" position have fallen victim to this? Im baffled and pissed.So firstly, has any other PES players noticed that this PES is harder on their hands?And secondly, has anyone else ever suffered an injury in direct correlation to playing computer games?There was a whole report on it on the news a few months ago so it is on the rise

Sounds like a mental thing. Play with a lot more patience I guess. D-pads always f*ck you up when you play too long or with too much aggression (more pressure on your fingers).But you haven't specified your symptons though...

Its cool cuz, I aint even embarassed by it, Im more pissed of by it but when a game can cause such injuries I have to consider not playing it tbh.I will happily go back to PES8 which Ive actually enjoyed more than this one so far
