I wondered if anyone was double jointed/has hypermobility in their hands and if it affects their gameplay very much, particularly with their thumb as I noticed that my pen grip for tablet play really is quite abnormal. It doesn't seem to affect my aim on short songs like (insert generic anime OP here) but on full length songs my joints tend to get sore, while my streaming hand never feels any pain whatsoever.

Yeah, I kind of move my hand around really fast and that's hyper mobile.

What the fuck is hypermobility and that grip?

To put it simply it's when you can bend joints further back than they normally do (due to irregular bone shape/protein deficiency/muscle tone) and depending on the severity of the case it may cause joint instability and serious pain or in my case just cause crappy handwriting, it might even be useful for a pianist

My thumbs are hypermobile/double jointed. It allows me to grip mice in a unique way that allows me to switch between grips easily and quickly. I have also never lost at thumb wrestling.

Since y'all posting abnormal hands, I'd like to lighten the mood by posting my normal, non amorphous hands

I guess this is a hands thread now. :D

Do you hold a stylus 'normally', or more like me?

That's a mighty nice hand you got there, it'd be a shame if it got rsi

I use a grip more similar to a standard writting grip for playing. I do use a grip similar to your playing grip for other things, though (for example, holding a knife while eating).
