    Who here as had dreams where they were in a game they have been playing a little too much?

    Most of mine involved war craft and not just WoW but back when I was playing nothing but War Craft 2 I dreamt I had a close encounter with an orc's axe. The flesh wound that ran from collar bone to belly button tickled.

    Yep, I've had dreams like that before. It goes for anything really. Movies, television shows, frequent tasks in life; anything.

    If I find a game that I'll play all day long (weekend or day off from work), then usually I'll have a dream about it. Usually about solving a real-life problem using some technique or skill from the game.

    I used to have dreams about WoW too. Then I'd wake up feeling disappointed that I didn't really get the epic item I've been longing for. Glad I gave up WoW though.

    When I was playing Tetris DS every day for about 2 hours before I went to sleep I dreamed about it alot, never any nightmares, but it still was weird dreaming about falling blocks. [​IMG]

    No Resident Evil 2 is a good game, but I was talking about how scary it was. The first time I played I had nightmares about it, not dreams. :'(

    One time I dreamed about a multiplayer Zelda game with 4 different colored links, and a year and a half later that was released as Four Swords. It was freaky.

    First time was when I played FF6 in Japanese for like 1 hour from a friend's snes.
    Then I was waiting so badly the game in English I had few dreams like seeing what the game was and would be next.
    It was so frustrating [​IMG]

    I can't remember of a recent one.

    While playing HL2 I had a few nights of terrible sleep and then I realized that I'm having nightmares of people chasing and trying to shoot me. [​IMG]
    The simple solution was to stop playing HL2 2-3 hours before going to sleep...
