Yep, mostly while waiting for them to load, or after I've won or lost. I do some crazy moves when I'm frustrated. xD

Leg going up and down, usually being my left one. Sometimes, it can be pretty fast, that I end up noticing, and still not stop. It doesn't annoy me though.

Leg bouncing sometimes, but usually it's making weird noises with my mouth. I have a tendency to do that whenever I'm really concentrating on something I'm doing.

I bounce my legs crazy fast the more intense a game gets. During the most intense times I tend to make dodging movements with my entire body from side to side (almost always trying to 1CC the hard mode in an arcade game). Long ago, in the arcades, I would do this, and onlookers would say, "what the f**k is wrong with that guy?".

Not stimming, but my hands sweat a lot when I play. Like if I were to play 2 games of super smash brothers and then give the controller to someone else they always wipe it down.

Now if I am concentrating really hard on a game my ears turn red, lol
