This QTV Eyewitness News item from 1992 reports on an 11-year-old Sydney boy who suffered an epileptic fit while playing a video game at a friend's party.

More recent research has identified a condition known as photosensitive epilepsy. It can affect a small number of people, mostly children or adolescents, when exposed to flashing lights at certain intensities or to certain visual patterns that might be found in video games.
