A doctor in Spain has officially 'diagnosed' Nintendo Wii tennis elbow:

But this is nothing new, games have always been lethal:

So what I want to know is, has anyone ever injured themselves playing a game?

Rest assured, this thread is in the interests of serious PCAdvisor.co.uk research (and having a bit of a chuckle on a Friday afternoon).

Other than giving myself that rather disconcerting motion sickness style feeling for an hour after a vastly overextended Quake session, no.

Hurt myself playing football(game init?)

Same as Belatucadrus, motion sickness

I'm not a big gamer, but I once tried a WW2 game where I was a soldier who walked around finding things and shooting Germans (first person game?). After about an hour of looking up and around made me feel sick for a couple of hours after. I like flight sims and don't have the same problem with them.

playing the Eton wall game. Matron took me straight to her room and sorted it out though.

Never mind the game can we download load Matron.


I have strained my back lying on it playing games on my laptop

after going in the water on some golf game on the Playstation.

I was ok at the time but I felt pretty injured the next morning.....

One of the Schools run by Monks, Downside probably, out for the count so I was lifted off the pitch and lay ed down on the touchline.

When I came too, play had returned to very close by, I assumed that I was still playing and had no idea that I had been knocked out, so I swung a fist at this big bloke leaning over me.

So there was I and The Abbot, lying on our backs.

I had managed to burst his nose.
