Ever injured yourself gaming?

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).

Never mind the game can we download load Matron.

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

There are places on the net where you can download Matron but you will be billed by MBS.

I injured by back recently litting a Computer off the floor to put on a desk to work on.
The health & safety advisor at work has now decided it takes 2 of us to lift one!

Used to play British-Bulldog at school, but it got banned after one lad ended up with a broken leg!!

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.....

Don't think I imagined it but wasn't there a young chap in Korea or somewhere who actually died after gaming for two days non stop? I remember reading something like that a couple of years ago.

Better watch out and not overdo that Halo Woolfie.

"Matron took me straight to her room and sorted it out" ... is it very wrong that I sniggered at that?

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.
