I thought I was the only one. When I was younger I played what is now my snes with my dad. We played the shit out of DKC and actraiser. When it was my turn to play, I stood up. I never sat down. I was 4 at the time. Now though, I sit my ass on my bed. I only stand up in the heat of the game. (Like when you're out of W.coil and W.tanks and trying to fight the final form of wily and do a no death run of mega man 7.(Which actually happened to me)). That moment when I won was better than the time I beat zelda II without the infamous crouch in the corner trick. The cool thing about it is that I'm 13 :D.

I am pretty sure that Racketman has just passed Nathan as coolest member of the boards.

And possibly coolest member of the world.

I sit when playing consoles on the tv, but I stand and game at my MVS a lot. However, I do have a couple stools ready to take a load off for those longer sessions...

I can never stand and play games unless I'm physically moving a lot in the game. When I stand for long periods of time I start to feel light headed.

I do some games while standing, mostly arcade styled titles. But I do have an old wiimote for the Wii I have on my treadmill with its little screen. Ive almost beat Battlekid and Turtles on the NES while walking. Now I dont do it as often as I did a short while ago, my commute is now 2ish hours home - thank you holiday shoppers not knowing how to drive, but Ill start doing it again soon.

Edit:
Oh yeah: FOR SHAME noise FOR SHAME

I make sure I get at least 30 minutes of walking or bicycling each day.

I've actually had a couple bad experiences from standing for long periods. I think it's just as risky, if not more so, than sitting. I play a lot of board games, sometimes for 10+ hours a day. After a bit, I will often stand up at the table and move around.

Who cares about this? Let's get to the real question.

Who here plays games on the toilet?

Done it more often with my Game Boy than you'd believe.
