  • that sounds awful

  • I didn't think much about this before but now my wrist has been bothering me lately. :(

  • It amazes me that this question is even being asked.  If you are worried about injuries from playing computer games, I think your focus needs to be readjusted and spend less time playing on a computer and more time doing actual physical fitness activities. Too much of ANYTHING can be harmful, especially where children are concerned.

  • Interesting...never thought of injuries doing esports,  But certainly can see it now.

  • Makes you wonder the injuries that can happen in V.R. E-Sports.

  • Wow I never realized 

  • REMEMBER SEEING A  SIMILAR VIDEO A FEW MONTHS AGO ON YOUTUBE.  THIS  PROFESSIONAL TEAM OF GAMERS ALSO HAD HEALTHY MEALS COOKED FOR THEM BY A PERSONAL CHEF.

  • Heart + mind = mental health; arthritis = physical

  • Injuries?  Really? From Esports?  In my opinion, if you are getting injured from playing computer games, you are spending too much time in front of a computer.

  • That is hard to learn, injuries happen all the time.
