10 Video Games That Could Seriously Damage Your Health

WC: It’s a well-documented fact that our video games are trying to kill us.

Now that I’ve got your attention, let me explain. Unless you’re a very, very avid reader, you probably didn’t know that every Nintendo 64 game manual came with a hodgepodge of small text, warning you of the dangers associated with this new technology called “3D gaming.” Oh sure – Goldeneye 007 might have seemed like an innocent mass-murdering James Bond simulator, but under those happy shooting soldiers and those carefree explosions were the tools to give gamers square eyes! Maybe. I didn’t read the warnings.

Fun and jokes aside, video games are no different from most hobbies out there. Sit down, check that your batteries are charged and remember to stretch your legs now and again and you’ll be fine. But if you think that strapping knives to your wrists while playing Assassin’s Creed is an awesome idea, maybe read this article first. ‘Cause the next 10 games have hurt more than just in paying money for. (Call of Duty, Culture, Final Fantasy, Mario Party, Mass Effect 3, PS3, Wii, Wii Sports, Xbox 360)
