* If you play ''{{Beatmania}}'', ''VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution'', ''PumpItUp'', ''VideoGame/GuitarHero'', ''VideoGame/RockBand'', or the like for long enough, listening to music on the radio will start to evoke a picture of a note track, not to mention moving your fingers (or feet) like you're playing the song you're listening to on an invisible controller. [[{{Pun}} Air Guitar]] [[VideoGame/GuitarHero Heroing]], if you will.

Added DiffLines:

* Playing VideoGame/ToontownRewritten enough will result in you not looking at anything slapstick or business-related the same way again. For example you may think all people in business attire are boring.

* Playing ''{{Spore}}'' long enough WILL make you look at animals, buildings and vehicles differently.
* ''SecondLife'' can be like this as well. You'll find yourself trying to get somewhere quickly, and trying to look for the fly button, or for the transport button if you spend any amount of time using a HUD such as [=EmDash=]. Ditto goes looking for the mute button when you wish someone would be quiet.
* Speaking of ''{{Prototype}}'', it seems that 'outbreaks' of 'illnesses' are [[ParanoiaFuel enough to set a seasoned player on edge.]]

* In the manga version of ''SayonaraZetsubouSensei'', insane NeatFreak Chiri's spring cleaning ultimately indulges in this trope. She becomes obsessed with filling dead space and starts stacking objects and people like blocks. Harumi comments that Chiri was always good at ''VideoGame/{{Tetris}}''.

** Similarly, {{Crackdown}} may cause an effect of seeing passable ledges on real buildings, as well as the ability to estimate what agility level you'd need to be in order to scale the building.

* The book ''Math Curse'' by Jon Scieszka has a teacher tell her class that almost anything can be thought of as a math problem. One girl in the class begins to see math problems in everything, even something as simple as a trip to the store.
