Games that give you sore hands


Dermot

Recommended Posts

Which video games give you the sorest hands, fingers, knuckles, etc.?

For me, the games that stand out most in my memory have been Super Mario RPG (the first one - with that Mario jump attack timing), Final Fantasy VIII (the TV ad for the game even lampshaded this :P), and F-Zero Maximum Velocity (especially when played on emulator with my PlayStation controller).

I'd also heard that Mario Party (the first one) caused countless repetitive stress injuries such that Nintendo started distributing ergonomic gloves to people who had bought the game, but I've never played Mario Party myself.

Games do not really give me sore hands,

so far the only thing that could hurt me in

the PC were:

°My ears: too much music.

°My right hand: during the making

I'd also heard that Mario Party (the first one) caused countless repetitive stress injuries such that Nintendo started distributing ergonomic gloves to people who had bought the game, but I've never played Mario Party myself.

The tug-O-war mini-game was the big reason why Nintendo started distributing gloves, I've gotten a blister on my palm because you're supposed to rotate the control stick fast before you lost 15 coins or 5 coins and trust me, that was a bad blister.

ANYWAY...

Banjo-Tooie

Racing canary-Mary in cloud cuckooland is a pain in the a** because you have to press the A button as fast as you can which for some reason, canary-Mary always wins unless you're crazy fingers. Luckily you can cheat by pausing the game to rest your fingers.

Diddy Kong Racing 64

Same as Banjo-tooie, it's impossible to beat T.T in time trials without pressing the A button fast, I know you're supposed to hold it but thats a cheat that'll speed up your car a bit then usual, but you have to collect bananas to increase your speed otherwise you lost for nothing.

My friend got a blister playing Mortal Kombat Trilogy some time ago. He gets way too into games at times.

You know the funny thing about Super Mario RPG?  Though it made my fingers really sore, it also made my hands the strongest they'd ever been during that time.  My piano playing was fantastic and my hands had more stamina and strength than they'd ever had.  Super Mario RPG on a SNES controller is great therapy for pianists. :P

I still have that thumb pad that my original DS came with. It's nice, but not good for firing smart bombs or using the tactical map.
