your left middle finger looks like you smashed it, but really its just callused from using the left trigger lol.

seriously looks soo weird, the whole side of that finger has a huge, squishy lump lol. Anyone else?

Also my left thumb is pretty much trashed as well, the damn left rubber part to the left analog stick wore out ages ago and i super glued it back together, so its like hard plastic lol. My hands have been killing me last few weeks but it finally looks like the pain is over lol.

    I do think that our generation will suffer with gamer hand!

    I can see myself sat in an old folks home with my hands in front of me looking like I’m gripping a controller and shouting random obscenities at people about Bakayoko.

    I've actually had something like this happen

    According my my missus I spent part of one night not long after release listing names with numbers (I can only imagine I was going through spreadsheets in my sleep) like a slaver :joy:

    In fairness, I've also spoken about gineau pigs in my sleep and even one time started talking about another woman(luckily my mrs knows I ain't the type or that would have been a big issue)

    So I really don't mind talking about fifa whilst I'm out of it, hate to imagine the other things my sleep filled brain might say given the right opportunity :joy:

    not sure honestly, it just comes natural for me lol. I like having the ability to quickly switch from shielding to lb dribbing etc., without happening to take a finger off

    I switched to doing this a few months before the end of 17, at first it feels weird and unnatural but now it's second nature and I feel the transition is smoother between sprinting and drag backs etc

    I have that same thing on my left middle finger as well. Actually has improved, but now just looks like loose skin.
