When I'm playing I stand.  What do you prefer and why?

I am very short and stand on a stool.



I do both.  Ussually I like to stand, but when my friends and I play for hours I end up in a seat eventually.

ROFL...

 At 4:40 in the morning (just about the time delirium kicks in), that has to be the funniest thing I've read in weeks.

It may just be the size of my cab.........but I am just a little over 6 feet, and it is pretty uncomfortable to do anything BUT sit when playing, since I am constantly having to look down at the screen while standing.

I've got a stool. I usually sit when I play by myself, and stand when I'm playing two player games.

I'm used to standing. It provides optimum stance (at least for me) for kicking butt in fighting games.

But then again, I can get so into Killer Instinct that I form bruises on the tips of my right fingers and blisters between my left fingers.

I feel your pain Noob. I'm 6'2 and for some reason I don't remember arcades being this small...its like they all shrunk.

I'm going to find a set of barstools, and if need be, I'll extend/replace the legs so I can sit comfortable.

Sure thing! I'll even let you pick who I whip you with. (I always use random select, anyways.)

I usually sit for puzzle games because they take longer to play.  I've had some heated puzzloop games which last 30 min.

But if I'm playing a trackball game like GTG or schuuz or shuffleshot, then I have to be standing.

There are 3 types of finishing moves: ultra combos, ultimate combos, and then old fashioned finishing moves. It's the ultra combos and ultimate combos that get you onto the high score list, though.
