I love my Nintendo DS, but the problem with portable gaming is that it’s just not meant for long gaming sessions. I tend to fidget and shift a lot on the futon when playing console games and I just shift every which way when playing my DS. There’s no position that is optimal for portable gaming.

Either I have it in my lap in which case my neck might strain unless I hold the system up which strains my arms. Then in bed it gets annoying leaning on my arms so I get on my back which strains my arms. Sometimes I hang my arms over the edge of my bed which works somewhat. Then there’s the desk position resting elbows on the desk which is okay but my desk chair isn’t the most comfortable seat given my options.

How do you sit while playing portable gaming systems?
