* Sometimes, playing ''Franchise/TalesOf...'' games and spending too much time on the cooking makes you forget you can't actually make cake with bread, eggs, and milk.

* 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}}''.

* People who have played ''{{Okami}}'' have discussed drawing circles with their finger around dying vegetation, or where one would be placed to get it to come to life.

** 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.

''Science Verse'', written by the same author, has a boy suffer from a similar condition after his science teacher says that everything can be thought of as a science experiment.

* OlderThanTheyThink: Steven Levy's book ''Hackers'' describes this trope succinctly regarding an incident that occurred in 1962, during the first blossoming of the original ''SpaceWar''.
* ''KatamariDamacy'' strikes in [[http://xkcd.com/161/ this]] ''Webcomic/{{xkcd}}''. The game builds so much momentum with its "always roll forward" pressure that the character starts to see objects on the sidewalk as potential things to make into stars or planets or whatever. Bonus EarWorm for "Na naaaa na-na na-na na na naaaa..."

* Playing ''VideoGame/{{Hitman}}'' can make one extra-observant towards any potential accidents, especially falling chandeliers. Or it might only make one wonder how to sneak undetected into the "Emplyees Only" sections of stores.
