I’ve seen the brightest minds of my generation walk into parking meters when out trying to catch a Bidoof in Pokemon Go, and I find my own arm gets numb a lot when I’m playing on the TV since I’m usually lying down. But nothing beyond that.
Oh sweet lord, Pokemon Go… Yep, walked into a wall, below knee height, and toppled into a flower bed…
I deleted it not long after. Never to return.
QOTW: Early on with my Valve Index, I was recording some Boneworks gameplay and… I’m not sure what step I’d forgotten to make sure I wouldn’t get VR sick that day, but I obviously forgot one and I got all the symptoms. Sweaty, nauseous, dizzy, weak… the works.
I was trying to slowly lower myself to the floor to sit and take the HMD off, when my weak knees gave out and the side of my head found the side of my desk.
It’s the only time I ever got VR sick to that degree and I’m still not sure why it only happened then like that, but my head was throbbing for hours after that 😅
I once fell over the balance bar of a DDR machine in a Pizza/Arcade place. Scraped my elbows pretty badly.
Direct drive simulation wheels (the more expensive ones) are known to break fingers with their force feedback. You definitely don’t want to run them at full force settings.
The first Mario Party had mini-games that involved rotating the control stick. I got blisters on my palms from playing them. I also once walked into a glass door playing Pokemon Go.
