Twitches and other physical reactions to playing games

#1Xian042Posted 9/5/2013 8:45:14 AM
Hey gang. Sometimes when Iím in a really intense moment in a game and Iím hyper focused I get this weird twitch in my jaw and tongue, it makes me want to rapidly open and close my mouth, almost like Iím saying ďyeah yeah yeah yeahĒ over and over. Weird, I know. It can actually be distracting and I try to squash it so I can concentrate.
Iíve noticed other gamers that have other head and body twitches while playing intense multiplayer games.
Have any of you developed twitches while playing games or know anyone thatís had this? Anyone hear of twitches getting worse the more you play?

I only get twitchy because I drink a crap ton of coffee and smoke. Never because of a game.

People have noticed that I rock back and forth when I'm playing games...it's a strange habit, but nothing to worry about.

The only thing I can say I do is when playing a game with driving/racing, I tend to lean slightly in the direction I'm heading in game.

Almost sounds like a Petit Mal seizure. I had a buddy have one playing Goldeneye back in the day, he started making an "unbuttoning collar" motion over and over again with his left hand at his neck, got a thousand yard stare on his face.

I do that sometimes too. Even in shooters when I'm couching behind cover enduring heavy fire I sometimes catch myself ducking with my character on screen.
