i don't take 15 minutes break every hour when i play... maybe 1 minute break to drink some water and head to the bathroom and back..

 

i noticed the health notice on the game manual of many games and also (recently)  on Uncharted 3 GOTY (probably because of the Move) everytime i started the game

 

I only play console games on the weekends.. often time itwill be 8-9 hours straight .....sometimes  10-12 hour skipping lunch and delay dinner...

 

*you can't pause an online match Smiley Indifferent

 

but after that i feel very tired.. and just want to sleep instead of eating anything..

 

but it's only once in a while....

I play for ~ 2 hours.  During that time I will usually get up 1 time for the bathroom, 2 times for beverages, and 2 or more times for snacks so I guess I take breaks!    

 

If I'm really into a game, like the Destiny beta, I might sit and play long enough to notice I need a break...my eyes will usually water when I've been going too long!

Yes due to PS4 not in a bad way like I hate it but the bright light from some games I may again have an epileptic seizure and have to go to the hospital again. Now at cut scenes I look away at the floor rather than at the TV with the bright flashes and such happen so I have to take a break every hour or so. When I get the tingling in my feet/legs/hands I break for 15 or so mins.

I won't listen to that because I value entertainment more than a liability warning aimed at a minority of people

I have gone to plenty of lazer shows and sat in rooms with strobe lights but I guess PS4 did it for me. I'm just glad I had my epileptic seizures over at my house and not a friends. Ambulance bills are insane.

Definitely. I generally play around 2-4 hours a day or so. Don't want to run into any seizures either. They're not worth it. So basically I avoid any games with tons of flashing lights or really bright levels. Those seemed to be my triggers in part, so I do my best to avoid them and play games that I know (for the most part) won't put me at risk.

Are you predisposed to seizures, Box? If so, that sucks. My sister had a seizure in high school. It messed up her perfect vision and even her sense of taste.

I once played Uncharted 2 multiplayer like 8 hours straight ( only bathroom breaks ). 

The next day I had minor headache. Smiley Happy

But that's dumb and possibly dangerous.
