Doctors Warn that Steam Sale Could Lead to Possible Health Concerns
By Halolz Senior Budget Gaming Correspondent Mike Moore

Valve recently announced that they will be running a sale on a large number of the game available on their downloadable game store Steam, which is slated to run from June 24 to July 4.

While Valve says on the Steam storefront that, “While we do not keep statistics on groin pain, there are no reports of injury or death as a result of playing games on Steam.” Some Doctors are still wary.

“While players are unlikely to break a bone playing a game, they should be concerned with other possible health issues that could arise,” said Dr. Farnsworth, who studies nerd and gamer health issues. “Playing all these games indoors could lead do a vitamin D deficiency, as well as something I call ‘lazy fat-ass syndrome.'”

He suggests that anyone playing to play games for a long period of time should invest in vitamin supplements or, “Move your gaming outside. Pick up your DS or PSP and go play under a tree, or if you have to play a Steam game play it on your laptop outside.”

The doctor also noted that gamers should be careful not spend all their money on games during this sale, otherwise they might not have enough for food or electricity. “Sometimes we forget how expensive things can be because they are on sale. How terrible would it be to lose your electricity, or pass out from malnourishment, because you spent all your money on games that you now can’t play because you have no electricity or are unconscious?”

When asked about gaming outside on an iPhone the Dr. Farnsworth stated, “That’s not a real gaming device. The games are so short of that thing that if everyone was playing games only on that, we wouldn’t have all these gamer health concerns.”

The Many Rocks of Video Games

It’s amazing how different even a lowly rock can appear depending on the video game genre. Also I couldn’t resist, I added the TF2 one myself. :D
