Yes it’s possible

Detailed Answer:


After going through the medical query I would like to tell you that yes action games which require quick responses and reaction do causes lot of adrenaline rush.

Increased adrenaline in the body can cause increased heart rate which leads to palpitations.

Too much use of such games is not advisable.
