Or, as the overacting on display in this video conveys, the agony of playing the DS in general. Maybe the kind of extreme, wild gesticulation associated with visual depictions of game-playing are what make non-gamers leery of our hobby? Don't worry, non-gamers -- it only looks like you're receiving periodic electric shocks. Playing games is, for the most part, a sedentary experience.
We must admit that we love seeing the classic "gaming" pantomime -- jumping up and down, flailing in the air, and exaggerated motions of exultation and disappointment -- applied to our favorite handheld, in a manner that is quite appropriate to the DS's unique character.
