Default Resting while playing

Quote:
From the manual of Battlefield 2: "Rest for at least 10 to 15 minutes per hour while playing a video game".
does anyone actually do this? or are you all machines like me where you can go 2-3 hours straight playing one game?

I don't think it's common to rest between hour intervals.

I agree, i feel far from "having a break" after an hour, i mean especially when playing a game like BF, i play 2142, typically a good titan game will last 40 mins maybe more, then ill just play another round or two.

10-15 min?? No. I will obviously get up to take a urine break, get some food, and maybe just get up to strech out a little. But thats like 2 min. every 3 hours.
