You Got Hurt While Gaming?

F-R-I-D-A-Y. Time for, that's right, TELL US DAMMIT. here's how it works: We ask a question, you answer it. Simple and no strings attached! This isn't some marketing survey or whatever. It's an emotional investment in you. Yes, we're interested in knowing you, Kotaku reader person. You probably know fucktons about us — more than you even want to, we're sure. But, hey, we'd like to know about you. That way you won't be some faceless blob — and we might feel a tinge of guilt when we ban your arse. Or not, because really we're incapable of human emotion. Not sure!

Something playing games is physical — especially if you playing a marathon session.

Question: Ever got a gaming-related injury? If so, what? How?


    I split open my knuckles and broke a bone in my hand while playing eyetoy kinetic combat. I must have shifted the camera some time earlier that day, punching targets on the far right side of the screen were six inches behind a brick fireplace.

    Haha not really, myself. Aching fingers and shoulder from Guitar Hero is probably the worst I've done.

    But damn funny story about my cousin: We played Tony Hawk 3 all day, and being the uncoordinated guy he is, his mind wouldn't let him stop pushing forward on the joystick even though he didn't need to. Needless to say, he got an RSI and his thumb swelled up to about 3 times the size. Funny time, he had to go to the doctors and all.
