My worst incident would have to have been in Star Fox Adventures. You know that tug of war styled challenge? The one where you have to rapidly press the A button? My right thumb was rendered completely useless for the next two weeks.

Sore thumbs after playing the Super Smash Bros. series and Street Fighter series for so many days in a row. Occasional headaches from playing video games for too long. Sore muscles from flapping my arms with Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games and Donkey Kong:Barrel Blast's horrible controls.
Last but not least,brain explosion after losing to Mega Man 1 and Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories over and over. :P

Ditto here, although it didn't hurt as long but i still got blisters on my thumb. I really hated that in Star Fox Adventures, and only recently was I given a GC controller with a turbo button. That just adds salt to that wound

Ohh, man I have a good one. Remember how in the original Mario Party, many of the mini-games required you to rotate the joystick alot? Well, in the Mini-Game story mode, there was one I could never beat with just my thumb rotating. So I tried using my palm, and I won by spinning with it, but I looked at my palm, and my whole palm had become a blister. And it was bleeding, and it hurt like hell! So I ripped off the dead skin and bandaged it and couldn't take it off for about a month. But at least I won ;)

Only real injury actually playing video games was back when they installed the trackball into the Track & Field game after everyone was cheating using the buttons. I got some of the worst blisters ever playing that game. I finally started wearing a racquetball glove.

Of course I did bonk my head pretty hard getting up out of a Star Wars cockpit game one time. I had to have 6 stitches. Does that count? I was so stupid it shouldn't. :D

-Took Nunchuck to the face because me and friends get our anger out by throwing the Nuchuck at one anothers` face when attached to Wii-remote(P.S. not safe).

-Friend was playing Tennis with me and swung the Wiimote smacking me in the chin.

-Super Mario 64 changes me into a vicious mad man due to the excruciating horrid camera angles resulting with me pounding my fist into the dresser multiple times.

-Got pissed off at Super Mario Sunshine, threw the GC controller bounced off the wall and hit my friend in the foot when gravity kicked in.

I seriously try to blame myself over the game though it doesn`t always work.

A word to the wise... Don't lean close to the TV playing Mario Kart online. My friends and I have on more than one occasion smacked ourselves in the face with the wheel while trying to do a "trick jump". Doesn't tickle.

Also, I've had serious aches and pains from DDR and GH/RB games. But that's to be expected when you play on Expert.

Funny story:

I was playing Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers on SNES with a friend. We were gambling on it. We bet $3 on Dhalsim vs. Dhalsim. I beat him by a hair in the final round. My friend punched a hole in his bedroom door. He bled. His mom made him buy a new door.

It doesn't sound like your visual impediment is due to gaming but a negative genetic attribute you've had to begin with, although I'm not saying gaming helps the situation.

That said, I've spent so many hours in front of a slew of TVs, monitors, and screens (for entertainment and work alike) I'm surprised my vision hasn't suffered from it by now. I've been playing games since kindergarten. Twenty-some years later and I still have 20/20 vision.

I remember really hurting my wrists playing Zelda: Twilight Princess. I loved that game, but the swinging sword motions really did me in after awhile especially during the Cave of Ordeals. 50 non-stop dungeons with no saves allowed!

EXPERIENCE MORE.... Arcade-quality graphics, awesome sound, "turbo-charged" game play, exciting TurboChip games... It's the incredible Turbo Genesis 64 Entertainment SuperSystem Experience. There's more fun, more challenge, and more excitment ready for you today!

Well, the first time I played my N64 (Mario 64 four straight hours), my stomach discovered that 3D videogames give me motion sickness, I'm more used to 3D graphics now, but it still depends on how the camara moves, particularly the fps point of view; but there's only been one time when I couldn't reach the toilet in time :P.

Also, when I got MKWii I was very exited about the wiiwheel, I started playing at least 4 hours a day with it, after a few weeks I started to feel some pain on my right thumb, and one day I woke up to find out I couldn't move it at all!, I went to the doctor and got it fixed, but now I'm done with that wheel, I just use it to play with my friends once in a while. Besides that the usual fighting game's blistered fingers and wii's wrist sore.
