Re: Gaming While Standing

I've actually been making a mental effort to stand up often while playing games this year, after getting a blood clot in my leg in January which led to a pulmonary embollism that damn near killed me. While they haven't figured out what caused the clot yet (since I'm unusually young to have such a thing), I've been told that it's not good for any person that may be prone to clots to sit still for long periods of time

what about sleeping or sitting? Surely Racketman doesn't do those things standing?

Sorry to go off topic here, but I was just looking this game up on youtube yesterday, and I thought it looked like something that no one would really, consciously, want to play. Do you find yourself playing it often? Is it actually more fun than infuriating?


It's hard as hell but fun. It's actually one of my favorite Neo Geo games, all of the fighters kinda feel samey to me.

I should try the treadmill gaming sometime.

I would play Beatmania standing, like in an arcade but my screens aren't placed high enough. So no dice.
