    Hi,I dont know your age,but if you are older,look up posterior vitreous detachment. This is not the same as a retnal detachment and is common as you age.

    henry,either go to an optician or go see your doctor ASAP.  You need this to be identified and treated before it becomes worse.  As you are an addicted gamer it would be wise to give the gaming a break until you get this sorted.
