So apparently, that scratching sound you hear in your war is actually locus from GoW

Or that rattling you see during an earthquake reminds you to press X to continue the intense sex QTE in GoW.

I ate some mushrooms once, then I kicked the crap out of a turtle. Is this the same thing?

It gets easier the older you get. I've put myself into some crazy places in the past playing a game for almost 48 hours. (with plenty of eating, washing, moving around breaks) It's really comparable to taking LSD after a while, you're just on a ride and it's gonna end whenever it ends. I had to train myself slowly to drop the game thoughts as I lay down the controller, it doesn't always work.

When I was in the navy I had around a week away from home with nothing to do so I played the hell out of skyrim. Put around 100 hours into it. One afternoon I walked over to the galley to get some scran and a fox walked across my path. I instantly wanted to reach for my bow. I felt really stupid, but I was more angry with myself. That fox pelt could have come in handy

Sleep deprivation is a surreal trip through being awake, without the sensory overload of video games. I average about 25 hours, a week, of sleep. In my waking hours, I will sleep roll, in my wheel chair, and find myself in parts of my house that I don't remember going to. In regards to games, I have been seeing the images of games, and hearing sounds, of what I recently played, since the Atari, but only after a few hours of playing the same game.

I have had times where I have played a game so long I can hear sound effect. I think coins or ring noises. I have had tetris syndrome several times. I haven't had a visual hallucination or wanted to repeat an action from a game before, as far as I know. However I have entertained the idea for fun sometimes.

I guess after playing Burnout 3: Takedown I have fantasized ramming cars off the road. Never did that though! Luckily :P
