* Players of WideOpenSandbox games, especially ones with extra mobility options, like ''{{Spider-Man}} 2,'' ''VideoGame/{{Prototype}}'', or ''[[VideoGame/JustCause Just Cause 2]]'', are often found remarking in various online community forums that they wish they could web-sling around town (or run up walls) to make it easier to get around town and that they occasionally fantasize about what it'd be like to do so at the local mall.

* There have been some claims that playing ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas '' DLC Dead Money, in which you have an Exploding Collar that is activated by radios will make people feel uncomfortable when around said radios or even hear the beeping sound the collar makes when it's about to explode.

** Alternatively, play a lot of MGS1 and then talk to a friend or listen to a teacher who tells you about an unfamiliar concept. Resist the urge to respond [[ParrotExposition "Unfamiliar concept?!"]].

* Watching films or playing games of any genre will likely get you thinking about your life in terms of the same cliches, though it's advisable to retain a sense of the distinction between reality and fiction.
** Similarly, if you've just finished watching/reading/playing something with a specific genre or tone, and immediately pick up another thing with a decidedly different genre or tone, it can sometimes take a couple of minutes to switch gears.
*** This is an unfortunate cause of many a BiasSteamroller; critics who frequently review things in one genre then look at something in another genre may end up docking points from the latter for not meeting their expectations of the former.

* Similarly, ''LARP/HumansVsZombies'' can have this effect. Looking over your shoulder to check for someone sneaking up on you, looking for choke points and other areas that would be useful if chased, so on and so forth.

* ''VideoGame/{{F-Zero}} GX'' has your racer regularly going at speeds greater than 1000 km/h. And the game allows you to put it in a first-person perspective and is compatible with a gaming wheel and pedals. Any speed less than 70 mph is going to seem ridiculously slow if you just got done playing an hour or two of the game.

* Professional copyeditors and proofreaders are usually among the most thorough and unrelenting {{Grammar Nazi}}s in existence. Some have claimed to have actually proofread love notes sent to them out of sheer habit.
