    my gf tells me i play way too much videogames when i tell her of weird dreams i have. lets post them if we have em.

    mine was few hours ago when i tried to sleep, i had a dream where i collected money for some business thing, then a really hot naked latin girl opens the door, i then hear her husband yelling at me from downstairs, and i started running, after getting downstairs i hear gun shots fireing, i look back and i see her husband and her both carrying AK-47 i jump up and start shooting them, it starts to flash red a few times as i got shot but i killed them both. finally i hear "Terrorist Wins!" and i freeze in place. oddly i didnt play Counterstrike all day. oh i was using a M4 weird how i was using CT gun and in the end i was the terrorist...

    i love that DJ max portable for the psp, and there are nights, esp after playing for hours before sleeping, where my dream is like the gameplay. just little bars falling down, and every now and then i will miss one of the bars and it says break. and i start the combo again and again.

    Search for the tetris effect, similar things can also happen with a lot repetitive activity (speak to lab workers for this one).

    When I was younger, I dreamed I had ALL the Pokemon.
    Then when I woke up - I did not [​IMG]

    I've also dreamt about Tetris.
    Blocks falling...

    Other than that, nope.
    But I do play too much videogames [​IMG]

    I don't remember my dreams often, but when I do they're somewhat... odd.

    Kuja (he of FFIX fame) was up to his old tricks and trying to do something decidebly nasty in the way that evil villian masterminds tend to do. For some dumb reason he was on a school bus. I'd seen the future and so I stopped him by taking his "magic wand" (which looked a lot more like a triangular clear-blue plastic shelf bracket than a wand, but hey), snapped it in half and threw it out of the back window of the bus. I then spent the rest of the day supervising Kuja as he talked to his Black Mage minions on his mobile phone to make sure that he didn't ask them to mail him a new one.

    Another time the whole of Southampton turned into the setting of an MMPORG. Not a clue what that was all about, I don't even play online games :wtf:

    I see picross puzzles when I close my eyes. I try to solve them.

    Too much gaming?

    I dream I am an Italian plumber and my sole mission in life is to jump ontop of small mushrooms and collect lots of gold coins floating in the air.

    I also need to save some hot Princess chick from a giant pissed turtle. Every time I manage to blow him away with my 12-Gauge and every time I wake up just after the Princess starts taking off her frock. Life isn't fair. [​IMG]

    I remember a good few years ago, me and the lads were playing Tomb Raider 4 nonstop over the weekend, (and smoking alot of pot them days), that much so that everything seemed to have a CG texture on it, ie walls, the sofa, etc!

    Ok, the drugs and sleep deprivation doesn't help but that was too much gaming!

    Remember kids, drugs are bad, I'm living proof, read above...

    Oh hell man. When Picross DS first came out, I couldn't sleep because of this. I would try to sleep and puzzles would just appear. It wasn't fun [​IMG]

    I remember back when I was playing the original everquest I was walking back home and it was dark and I thought to myself "I should just put my dark elf mask on".

    I stopped playing EQ shortly after that.

    PS: Dark elf mask (for the bard) enhances night vision.

    Speaking of picross, do the puzzles only go up to 20x25? Quite a disappointment there, they only take 10 minutes or less each......

    When I played NFS MW on PS2, I would dream of getting new cars and modding them and smashing cops and stuff. Weird.

    Dreams, dreams dreams...uhm, I definitely play video games too much. my FFTA hour counter says 600. Even though I beat the game and have everything under the sun, I can't put it down. Most of the hours however come from falling asleep while playing it. Then of course in my dreams, I am subjected to the unbearable horror that is turn-based combat. But no, not any turn based combat. I get to walk in place while waiting for my next turn to come! Then I only move in straight lines to get to my destination. What a shame. If only life could be like that. It'd be a blast. [​IMG] hey...don't look at me like that. I can dream whatever I want. And you can too. Dream it, dreamers. [​IMG]
