We've all had it during long gaming stretches. Your arse starts to get sore, it itches, it becomes very uncomfortable to sit.. how do YOU deal with it?

Don't think that's ever happened to me, least not often enough for me to remember the last time it did. My legs can get really numb, though. And when that happens I'll just do some light stretching.

I don't experience it often on account of not playing games for too long very often.

Get up and walk for 10 minutes every hour to help with circulation. Same thing they do in an office workplace.

I thought this topic was going to be about sex. I am pleased and disappointed.

I can say honestly that has never happened to me. I get up fairly often and don't usually play for long at any one time though.

Second time today this has happened to me. I'm liking this trend of dirty topic titles, though.

I have a comfy chair. My ass has never complained.

I rarely ever get it since I'm constantly getting up to piss like a racehorse.

Sit on an exercise ball, which keeps you constantly moving anyway.

I can't stand being in the same position for very long, so I tend to shift around, or get up and walk around a lot.

I've had my legs go numb at work, though. Maybe I should follow Will Smith's lead and try to get me a standing desk.

If you get a sore butt from gaming too long you are obviously a light weight.
 
I've had a lot of times where I had serious pains in my arm and fingers from frantic MMO/MOBA/FPS playing however, but I kind of have a medical condition that causes those so I'm not 100% sure its solely to blame on the gaming.

I haven't had to deal with this ever, Just have a comfortable couch or chain and you are set, if you still aren't then just stretch.

I play games in like 6 hour chunks at a time so this has been a problem for me in the past but I got in the habit of standing up every 30 minutes to an hour in order to pet my dog (not a euphemism). That way my ass and eyes get a couple minute break every once in a while.

Just develop arse calluses. You know how guitarists develop finger pads? Just get a big one of those on each bumcheek. Mine are each like an old dog's paw, except larger, hairier and a bit softer.

I can't say that I've ever experienced what you're saying in the past twenty-five years. Maybe some minor stiffness in the neck and back area but a quick 2K run usually fixes that.

Never had a problem with it. Might be because I switch between a ton of unergonomic positions too often to notice any fatigue.

If I sit for more than two hours then yeah, my ass sometimes hurts. I usually just stop playing at that point.

Yeah I fucking hate my office chair. It's cheap but it's the worst. Never skimp on those, that's my new policy for life.

But whatever I ultimately just stand up and walk around a bit, head to the basement and grab a water bottle or something.

Although now I find myself considering getting a standing desk. It seems like it'd be great for work but terrible for PC games.
