If you thought gaming related injuries were generally restricted to RSI, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and the occasional Wii mishap, you might be surprised to learn that you can actually hurt yourself playing touch screen games now -- something that one Taiwanese man found out the hard way.
According to Shenzhen Satellite Television, the man damaged the cartilage in his finger after spending hours and hours on end playing games on his touch screen mobile phone, leaving him unable to bend his finger properly.
It sounds a bit far-fetched, but if the doctor that appeared on the Shenzhen broadcast is to be believed, it’s something that’s entirely possible. The doctor compared cartilage to rubber, explaining that both wear out with usage over time.
If it’s wrong to play Draw Something until my fingers are unable to function properly, I don’t want to be right.
