I do CAD for a living and wear wrist braces all the time when using a computer as well as have an ergonomic work environment at home. 45 minutes of hectic mouse and keyboard action hurts. I may not be a normal 20 something player but still the non-stop nature of action is not healthy for anyone as you are supposed to use a keyboard for less than an hour at a time and a keyboard and a mouse for less than 30 minutes before you take a break or you can build up muscle tension in your hands which can lead to nerve damage, e.g.. carpal tunnel. I have avoided it barely but have seen it destroy some of my friend's wrists and hands even after they got surgery.
