Has anyone had weird RL experiences relating to video games after having a long video game session?

I played majora's mask for 10 hours in an attempt to beat it in one sitting
right around the time I reached the tree there was a teeny tiny earthquake, like cat 2.0 or something. The tremor caused the game to freeze and I had to reset and of course I hadn't saved since getting into stone tower temple
got a migraine shortly thereafter and threw in the towel
Tried to save irl before asking out a girl

Jesus. I'm not generally bothered by OCD shit like fig newtons not lining up or the tessellating tiles not tessellating. But when OP posted the picture I was bugging out because I couldn't find it immediately.

God damn it, I hate this shit and it has happened to me multiple times.
some times when on a dare, or when putting a bet or playing a game or when talking to a girl i subconsciously think that i have to score/win

It felt awkward as fuck and not just because I felt like a huge weeb. It reminded me of talking with a german exchange student and her telling me how weird it felt the first time she had a dream 'in english'

dota 2 is impacting my perception of reality.
I straight up hallucinate video game sounds and music all the time at work. Hotels are super quiet and droning at night, and working a night shift fucks your brain up already.

>refers to pop as "soda" or "soft drinks
I remember playing Red Dead Redemption non stop when I first got it. Because I played it for so many consecutive hours, there were times where I caught myself walking like John Marston after watching his walk cycle for so long. In fact I feel like I've done that with quite a few videogames.

I was reading a Witcher book. Got really sick in the middle of the night and ran to the bathroom in a daze. As I sat on the toilet I talked to myself about how sorceresses and mages are shitty conspiring assholes. I legitimately believed they existed for some reason.

fuck you OP.
and I only have overlapping experiences of daydreaming when I'm really sick.
weirdest experience was when I was at work and for some reason I started believing that I could use a spell from an RPG to crack a hole in the ground so the office would close and I could go home.
Oh shit you just sparked a memory of some time I did the same thing except with food. I was farming something in WoW and everytime I took a bite my mind registered the tastiest bites as rare drops. What the fuck

Persona 3 and 4 makes me feel weird sometimes. Spending so many hours building your characters traits, studying for exams, and hanging out with friends makes you realize how little you spend on such activities in real life.

I used to laugh at all you fags for this kind of shit but this shit happened the other day:
> Some dude running toward me full speed
> I mentally thought I could do a medium shoryuken into a FADC ultra and live
It turned out he was running to get past me, but that thought was so instinctive I was worried for days about my new lower survival rate.
Fuckin video games
A few months ago someone banged on my door in the middle of the night, so I grabbed my handgun and went to check it out. The whole time I was visualizing a [Caution] in the top of my view, as if I was playing Fallout and somebody knew I was there but not WHERE I was.
Just ended up being some teenagers playing ding dong ditch I think, because I stayed up for a good hour after that and nothing else happened.
>Been playing mirrors edge
>Runners vision for whole week
Not that anon but me and all of my brothers do this pretty much all the time when visiting eachother. Sometimes the ones not answering the door will stop what they're doing to keep a look out for trouble.
It's what happens when you grow up in a rough neighborhood
When I walk to an unknown neighborhood for the first time, I get the urge to press the map button.
Fair enough, but shit like that is a little scary man. It's a little fucked up that even a loud banging on a door is worth grabbing a handgun.
Just hear so many crazy stories about idiots getting shot at night because another guy thought they were doing something illegal.
>Playing Okami a few years back

>lol to myself and decide to keep the fan on a while longer
Different anon here. I have a handgun as well. I know that there's a 0.0001% chance I'll ever have to use it for defense, but I'd like to have it on the off chance that I WILL need it.
The way I see it is; I'd rather have it and not need it, than need it and not have it.
It's not like owning a gun is a burden or anything, I live alone so nobody is going to accidentally shoot themselves with it or anything. I don't see any reason to NOT have one
That's fine and I understand what you're saying, but I kinda disagree.
I'd much rather just not have it. The idea of ever making the mistake of shooting someone I know is horrific. And, in many cases, gun owners who actually do find themselves in a situation like a robbery often manage to get shot by their own gun. Whether through being an idiot or the other person getting the gun doesn't matter, both are shit.
Overall I'd much prefer to have something like a baseball bat if I knew I was living in a shit area.
He pretty much hit it on the head. It's kinda like wearing a seatbelt in your car or having a fire hydrant in your house. Owning a gun doesn't mean I expect to shoot anybody, just like wearing a seatbelt doesn't mean I expect to get in a car accident. But on the off chance something happens where I do need it, I'll have it.
Fun fact: Guns in America are used something like 100x more often to prevent a crime than they are used in crime
No offense anon, but I don't think seatbelts and guns are a good comparison. You can't accidentally kill a friend with a seatbelt.
I mean I don't think you can, if you could then that would be interesting to see.
You would never shoot someone you know unless you're an irresponsible idiot. Its not like I planned to just shoot at sea mysterious dark figure if I saw one. No, a gun is a last resort. If somebody actually attacks me and I think I'm going to die, that's when I would use it. Also the home owner getting shot with his own gun is a huge myth, that almost never happens and is a myth used by the anti-gun crowd to get more votes. I'm guessing you're European?
My behavior prior to sleep depends heavily on what game i was playing nonstop before:
-FPS games (Metro,Unreal,STALKER,etc) makes me walk like i was a soldier carrying an invisible assault rifle;
- Survivor horrors (Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Amnesia, etc) makes me search and stop in open doors in the house as a potential danger, and i close them before walking past them;
Mostly, the game music keeps playing on my head for quite some time, depending on how many times i listened to it.
I know your pain, just got forza 5 not a while ago and been playing the shit out it, even has the same car I drive in it, which is how I totaled it.
Long story short, I drive a Ford Focus RS, fast little fucker but they got the intertior spot on.
Stayed up all night playing forza, getting people mad that this little hot hatch was pulling faster than their tuned JDM's.
Pass out in chair around 5 am, start work a 6 am.
Wake up in a panic and bolt out the door, already wearing work clothes and jump into my Ford.
Not even a second to think, slam into reverse and tear out of the drive way and drive down the road, look at the speedo and see its getting close to 160km/h, think fuck yeah, good time on this section.
Realise that this isnt Forza.
This is my real Focus RS.
Going a very real 160km/h.
And getting faster.
After all that I slammed into the back of a parked mini van around the corner.
Sureal shit though, didn't even know till it was to late.
>Guns in America are used something like 100x more often to prevent a crime than they are used in crime
Problem is anon there are a lot of irresponsible idiots. And while I don't think I'm one of them there still are scenarios where misunderstandings occur. Loud crash through the door, someone coming at you, panic, mistakes happen. And even if someone did break into my place I'd rather not use a gun.
And how do you figure it is a myth? Because it makes perfect sense that when a gun is involved there will automatically be more casualties.
And I'm 'murrican, but I don't really think the region we're from matters in the discussion.
I can't seem to find the source right now, but I'll keep looking. It doesn't help that I'm on my phone. This is a good read in the meantime if you've got time to kill
Not sure if this counts.

Strange times for me.
People have gotten their throats slit by seatbelts in cases where they would have been unharmed if they hadn't worn one at all.: http://www.againstseatbeltcompulsion.org/victims.htm

I have this one particular tree in mind halfway along Blacks road.
One of these days we'll be together mr tree.
>wake up and have to pee/shit really bad
>go do it, feels amazing
>have to pinch/slap my thigh to make sure i'm not still dreaming
I dunno why I do this. I've never pissed or shit the bed before.
I have pretty excellent bladder control. My body won't let me piss itself when i'm sleeping and i'll have dreams where i'm in a bathroom trying really hard to do it but can't.
My body is a bro like that.
>not performing real life FADCs
Step it up, senpai.
I've been having those dreams a lot lately and they are really vivid.Sometimes it will be me pissing in a bucket to wash my car or to extinguish a fire.
The weirdest one I had was this gigantic maze like public toilet where the stalls had no doors and all the urinals made you look at the other people pissing

>mfw I look back on it
I remember getting really down in the dumps when a relative died when I was like 7-8 years old. I thought to myself "what would I do if that happened to my parents", and I cheered myself up a little when I realised I could just reload.
Fuck that didn't cheer me up very for long though....
I have dreams like that last one all the time. I have to pee really bad but every where I go something is keeping me from it like there's no door on the bathroom or the floors covered in piss.
It's like those dreams where you're trying to fuck a girl but every time you go to the phone rings or your mom tries to open the door or something.
Post Traumatic Fun Disorder?
I can do them in my sleep and I'm a scrub, if I can do 'em I'm sure you can too, it just takes a few days in training mode.
but i've spent tons of time just trying to do them.
I wish I had the drive to get better at fighting, i find them fun, but I feel like shit as soon as I make one mistake, which is pretty much every second i'm playing fighting
When I used to play WoW I'd get this one alot
>at cousin's house or somewhere similar
>party is ending, people saying goodbye, going home and stuff
>think to myself that I could save alot of time by Hearthstoning instead of dealing with the car ride back home
>start to look toward the bottom right of my vision
Pretty sure the devs have been long gone.
Yeah often all it takes is one mistake, I feel ya.
I like to spend hours in training trying to come up with fun combos or try shit my friends tell me is a fun combo
Ya the whole 8 glasses a day thing was debunked awhile back but people still think its gods word.
The correct amount is about 4 to 5, depending on how much water you have used in your body "let say sweated out" Then its safer to drink something like Gatorade then water.
Kinda mix it up my workout buddy used to tell me, work out and drink sports drinks, normal day just drink water.
Now if you dont know what dehydration feels like, here's a simple test.
>Does it feel like the nerves in your skin are exposed?
>Are your eyes on fire.
>Does the nerves in your teeth hurt?
Boxers sometimes must deal with dehydrating themselves to lose water weight and meet weight restrictions, so I know all the signs when I am dehydrated.
>Friend of mine started doing that
>He lost 20kg within a year with that and a small diet change(less junk) with no exercise at all
>Thinking I should do that cause I used to be skinny but now I'm skinny-fat
>Not ever needing to stifle the urge to crouch or creep around after playing a shit load of stealth games.
I remember waking up and walking to the toilet in a weird crouch walk with no lights on before I realised what the fuck I was doing. My mind isn't very coherent when I've just woken up.
>be playing Payday2 with my pals a lot recently
>need to deposit some money in my bank
>think "I should wear a suit in right?"
>walk in, look around and case the joint
>Step up to the counter and talk to the person normally
It's kinda fun, actually. Though I was in the airport this past week and there were a bunch of ATMs and I did honestly think "time to whip out my power saw."
Remember that old thread where everyone started crouch walking around their house to try and get a snack late at night without disturbing anyone and they posted results?
Try it right now. Shit's harder than vidya makes it look.

I got into XCOM a whole lot recently, and I can't stop brainstorming potential scenarios in my mind while sleeping. Squad loadout and positioning and so on, and how they would deal with potential threats. The last few days when I've woken up it has always felt as if I just ended a long XCOM session.
perhaps I've been probed by the ay lmaos
After all these years I am still having a ton of fun. The key is probably to not take it too seriously, I never did that.
Though a mindset like that can affect your performance.
I don't even take it that seriously, I just come off a match going either "that fucking sucked" or "that was pretty intense" then I just come back to /v/ while waiting for my next one.
Has anyone else been able to understand the animals in Animal Crossing after a few months of play?
I was spooked as fuck when I accidentally understood them at one point. I think all the words go into a vocaloid thing in game or something.
>play a shitton of the binding of isaac over the course of like two days straight

This was a very subtle point they liked to make
sadly it just deludes people into thinking how life and social relationships actually work. that's if they can even get that far
I can't stand large places anymore. Everywhere I walk, I look for cover and do my best to avoid open areas, and if I absolutely have to go through them I scan rooftops and windows for imaginary ambushes.

I went on a gta binge last week. like did nothing else for 3 days straight. I went to go drive and for a second I forgot about like stopping at a stop sign and braking a reasonable distance from a stop sign/light. luckily I did stop but I almost missed it. it took me about 5 minutes to fully acclimate back to responsible driving.

Not videogame related, but I once pissed into our garbage bin. It was one of those foot operated ones. No one ever mentioned it but you couldn't miss the stench and the fact it had puddled outside the plastic bag on the at of the bin.
with me it is actually autism spectrum disorder, which I was diagnoses with when I was 8, but the mental health clinic I started visiting after demons tried to speak to me almost a few months ago claims that I also have paranoid schizophrenia and that is where my irrational thoughts come from. I think the world just has a unique way of speaking to me.

Fucking this! Zebedee Wilson was the therapist I spoke to on a weekly basis before I got sick of them pushing anti-psychotics on me!
When I was playing THPS a bunch back in the day I was always on the lookout for rails to grind on or ramps for air tricks in real life. Crazy how this stuff permeates into every part of our lives.

I forced myself to play the campaign of bad company 2 in one sitting, after I was done and was outside I heard a chopper and started looking for a rocket launcher to shoot it down and realized im stupid.
I live near an airfield so choppers and planes are very common too.
Holy shit the campaign was tedious and boring as all fuck
I hate to say that you are probably not wrong. I have mixed feelings about the diagnosis becasue some things feel like they are more than tricks of my mind. It scares me a little bit to accept that one day I might slip totally out of reality.

Not likely. It rarely needs treatment or drugs unless you are an exceptionally bad case. You can usually manage it on your own.
It's one thing to think people can hear your thoughts and hear things that aren't there. It's another to completely slip into a state where you don't know what reality is to the point you hurt someone.

The thing that made me seek treatment was feeling compelled to kill someone. Every time I went to sleep I would be at the mercy of the voices in my dreams and they would give me precise battle plans on how to assassinate them. I was so scared of them that I would force myself to stay awake for days on end just so that I could avoid them. Eventually I had to give the bolt from my rifle to a friend of mine with orders not to give it back until the individual who was to be targeted was so far out of my radius of reasonable operations that I couldn't do anything about it, and they still refuse to return it because I am a suicide risk. Now I just kind of feel like a hollow shell containing a demon that is angry with me for foiling his plans. I'm flunking out of college because I feel so uncomfortable around humans now that I can't even get tutoring in math since I rock so violently around them that I can't read or type and I feel like shit for wasting the time of the people that try to help me.
Guess that sucks, but look on the bright side. You should never feel alone.

Does anyone else have this or am I autistic
i used to drink quite a bit of soda. i moved over to sparkling seltzer water. after about a month of drinking nothing but that, i totally forgot about soda. the fizz is enough to satisfy cravings. ive been drinking nothing but sparkling water, and a beer or two, for the past 2 years. i tried drinking some coke a while back, but it was horrid. i could REALLY taste all that sodium in there and it left this terrible taste on my tongue afterwards. glad i gave up on that shit.

m8 you are so fucking dumb, thoughs shitty drinks have high sodium (electrolytes) content it dehydrates you more than it hydrates you.

I got scared for a few seconds before I realized it was just my mind playing a prank.
When I was about 13-14 and Halo 3 customs were in full swing and I was spending about 8 hours a day playing it. Whenever I would take a break/lie in bed trying to sleep every now and then I would hear the "bloop" the 360 makes when you get a game invite/notification.
Lasted about a year. Was pretty strange.

>And how do you figure it is a myth? Because it makes perfect sense that when a gun is involved there will automatically be more casualties.
the statement that most shootings happen with victim’s own gun is frequently used in the media as anti-gun propaganda based on suicides,
being shot with your own gun during a break in is rare consider this
your gun will be nearby most likely in the same room as where you sleep, hidden or locked in a gun safe the only way they will get your gun is by surprise in this situation, which if they take you by surprise you are already at their mercy if its getting shot or stabbed the end result is death
If it's a break-in while you're not at your house you're most likely not going to walk in on it happening and again, gun safe

i got sleep paralysis after playing P.T.
on a side note, have you been able to will yourself out of the paralysis?
I've heard of people saying they arent aware of the sleep paralysis and blame it on something else, like someone sitting on them. But the time's i've had it i know exactly what it is and immediately try to start moving around.
Like just eventually forced my mouth to gurgle out a HAAAaaa and eventually get my arm to finally lift, then slowly getting control back to my body?
im hoping its not a bad thing cause i've done it twice.

I get it not too frequently, but when it does happen im 100% aware. How could you not be aware your paralyzed? sounds silly.
I try to focus as much willpower and strength to move a limb, and typically that's good enough to snap out of it, all the while fighting the urge to sleep again. In my experience if I sleep again *while* paralyzed I *will* have a nightmare. absolutely unavoidable.

I beat a pro and felt like a god all day, girls flirted with me openly when I went out to lunch, mom gave me an option of getting a new car, best friend who moved away said he missed me and was moving back cause he can't deal with life without his best friend.
I declared godly things happen when you beat pros in their professions.

Holy fuck this. If you feel your diet is shit or that you are overweight, don't try some kind of fucking health guru diet shit right away. Just. Fucking. Stop. Drinking. Soda.
Seriously, you can still be a greasy piece of shit if you like, eat snacks, pastries, whatever. But just dropping the soda will improve your quality of life tenfolds. Ease it in with diet soda if you have to, then move on to sparkling water. After a month or two, I promise you won't miss soda, infact you will probably think it tastes like sweetened piss.
I love the sizzling jolt carbonated drinks give you, but soda is the fucking devils drink. I love sugar, but I don't miss soda one fucking bit.
>I always imagined kidney stones being extremely super smooth.
That's why even women, who's grand token of pain is childbirth, flinch when you mention them, right?
Admittedly, I didn't expect them to be covered in SPIKES, but sandpaper-y sure.
I had kidney stones that got so bad my tubes got all fucked up and had to be surgically repaired. A year of procedures, half a year having a tube coming out of my back and a piss bag strapped to my leg, and a 6.5 hour surgery that left me hospitalized for 4 days and unable to properly move for 3 weeks. All because I drank too much soda.

Like a glass a day, maybe two. I cut that shit cold turkey and am 35 pounds lighter just from that with no other dietary changes. Also unlike the picture, my stones were smooth, just large. The complications came from how many procedures I needed to break them up.

I used to have good bladder control. Drinking coffee in the mornings because of work killed it. I don't shit out piss myself, but I can't hold anything for long long periods of time anymore.
>tfw never have any "tetris effect" thoughts in RL but your dreams use retarded video game logic like pausing, save states, invisible/stealth spell, etc.

Pissing out stones generally doesn't feel like much of anything. I have pissed the broken fragments and not noticed. The stones as they were had gotten too big to pass, anything larger than 5mm in diameter simply can't pass through the ureter. That shit getting stuck trying to force its way through your tubes is what causes the pain, and it is definitely the most intense, horrible pain imaginable. I've broken bones before and would rather have had both of my legs snapped in half than ever having to deal with stones again.

What do you work in a sweatshop? Stones are the worst, nauseating, collapse to the floor pain you can imagine. If you have a stone attack, you can't very well move let alone work.

There's two types of procedures, one is a non-invasive thing using sound waves which tends to be less effective, the other involves shooting lasers through your dick. If you have the latter procedure, they usually leave a stent in your ureter to keep it from swelling shut, and the part nobody tells you is that in 3-4 weeks you have to go back to have the stent removed. This involves having a cystoscope shoved down your dick while you are totally awake. Pic related, I've had this thing about 6 times over the past year.

Was it really good? I don't remember to be honest.
So that means that when the stones are smaller than 5mm there's no other way than pissing them out?
I can't imagine the process. A whole day of driking water and trying to pull out some stones out of your hole.
You all are incredibly autistic and this thread is shit

Suddenly hear the s-link rank up sound in my head
Happened to me once when I was sicking reading some horror story, I just randomly started planning how I was going to get out the country to meet with a none-exsistant cult to get my name off a demon's list
Over the years playing video games I sometimes "play" idle animations if am by myself or just subtle ones if am bored.
Another thing is that if am just walking somewhere I like to sometimes think am walking through an area outta game, like maybe metro, trying to feel how arytom would feel walking top side.

This shit. All my dreams alternate between me being me, like in first person, and me controlling things as if it's a video game. In so many fucking dreams when shit goes south I load an older save file. Once I was in a nightmare and forced myself to imagine opening up the menu and press Alt + F4. I wasn't lucid or anything; I wasn't thinking "Okay, this is a dream" but that was just my reflex action.
Shitload of people have problems with kidney stones in my area which is caused by the tap water being highly mineralised with calcium.
I'm less likely to get them if I drink soda instead.
one time i played through Earthbound and Mother 3 over the course of a week, then took a huge dose of extended release DXM (yeah i know, highschool tier drugs) and everytime i wanted to do something an RPG menu would pop up in the corner of my vision and i'f have to select what i wanted to do. and i had a PSI battle with a lamp. it was honestly really cool
There's this fork in the road on the way to work with a shitton of trees in the middle of the fork, it's so tempting to just go straight and see how many trees my car makes it through before it stops

I'm not huge on guns; I just grew up with them because my dad is big into hunting (never cared for it myself) and so they've always been around. Most people are usually pretty okay when it comes them, but when you see your occasional idiot.... they really shine.
Like the time there was a pregnant lady in the shooting range right next to mine with her white trash baby daddy. Juggalo tattoo and all.
Fuck living in the south sometimes.

I remember that after playing a shitton of Asassin's Creed back in the day I had had some trouble focusing on objects IRL because I've gotten so used to that fucking blur in the game.
Other than that, nothing special other than the usual "calling your local currency gold instead of the name of your local currency" thing.
