As silly as it sounds taking a break does help out a player.
Reasons why this helps
- Concentration- As stressing as a game like F-zero X or GX can be the player might get stressed out and lose concentration or get frustrated and rage quit. Taking a short break can change a players state of mind and improve overall preformance.
- Fewer hand cramps- if the user is preforming a very demanding and fast tequnice like Snaking, Wall boosting, or Space Flying the user could get hand cramps or carpel tunnel in hibbiting further play.
