I've been playing PGR4 for quite a while today and my pointer finger has the claw syndrome and actually hurts from using the trigger -- I try and alternate with the middle finger but I just don't have control..

yes, portions of this sounds wrong but I'm serious, my finger HURTS.

Usually after extended hours of playtime.

Not really. Maybe when I first started into gaming, but now-a-days the most I'll usually get is a bit of cramping up after extended playing time (usually after hours upon hours at LANs) or just straight intense playing time, like some serious button-mashing games.

I've had sore thumbs when I'd marathon CoD, I'm guessing from pushing down constantly on the sticks.

Not really, when I'm playing with the controller. I don't really hurt my finger or hands(counting the xbox 360 controller, PS3 controller, and wii mote). Though that's a different story when I play on my pc though, I can't seem to play for more then 2 hours on my pc when I use the keyboard.
I'm a gamer dang it, not a pc gamer or a console gamer, just a gamer.

It will end up giving you arthritis sooner than most other people will get it.

When I play SNES or my DS lite(my phat as well) I start to lose feeling in my hands after a half hour or so. I think they weren't designed for my big american auto mechanic hands.

Nope unless it involves button mashing.
