* Play ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar'' for a while, or any third-person shooter with a [[TakeCover cover mechanic]], and you'll start seeing low walls, doorways, protruding objects, and pretty much anything as a potential cover spot. You'll also be alarmed at how common chest-high walls are in real life.

Added DiffLines:

* A few ''VideoGame/WorldOfTanks'' players have confessed to having their real-life driving skills suffer somewhat due to the unique transmission properties of tanks as compared to cars. Others have admitted that they have begun to analyze vehicles on the road for possible armor thickness values (and occasionally heaping scorn onto box vans for having 'unsloped armor'), though this is obviously purely academic; the real life counterparts of any in-game gun would have no problem taking apart a civilian vehicle.
