'Wiiitis' pain may be badge of honor to Nintendo gamers

We've all read about 'winjuries' before but it looks like they're starting to clog up the doctor's office more often as of late. Interestingly, Nintendophiles don't seem to mind; instead they regard their injuries as a badge of honor. And why not? It's hardcore when you can get hurt playing a video game. When's the last time you got a bloody lip while playing Halo or accidentally put your hand through a glass table while playing your PS3? With a Wii, these are actual risks.

If you experience a winjury, doctors recommend treating it like a sports injury: anti-inflammatory medication, and plenty of ice.

So anyone out there have any war stories to tell about getting hurt playing Wii?
