Nopes. I used to (when I wasn't playing Alteil all day) play Wii for 2-3 hours a day, and not non-motion sensing games either. I have Prince of Persia, Okami and Metroid Prime 3. All of which require me to hold those arms UP! And when I got tired, I would either play Brawl or take a nap :P.

Then again, Sonic & Mario Olympics is probably tons of mini games with wacky arm swingy crazy hand eye co-ordinated insanity, in which case I have not felt your pain but I understand and symathize.

Correction: The first day I had Metroid Prime I played for around 6 hours - standing up arm point outward. I was stiff for a few days.

I think Resident Evil 4 did that to me once or twice, only when I played it for hours and hours without rest though. It doesn't help that I'm a total pansy when it comes to horror games like this though. Shooting games aren't exactly my expertise either. Despite all this, I had a lot of fun.

Mario and Sonic olympics will beat the crud out of you if you play it for too long. The swimming events especially tend to leave my arms in a state of perpetual pain. Still in the end it hurts so good that I have no regrets.

I got that game as a gift, played like 5 mini games and hated every one of them :(

I just kept thinking I should be playing rayman or wario instead.

Guess we won't be duelling you any time soon.
I expect a few solid days of ice packs and arm rests are in store :P
