Tetris Effect Testimonies:

So, I spent most of the past summer playing [[Batman:Arkham Asylum Arkham Asylum]]. And eventually it got to the point where I would close my eyes and see everything in Detective Mode because I pretty much played the game with it always on.
Way back when Mario Kart DS came out, I did a lot of bicycling. Admittedly, I was one of those people who used the snaking technique for the time trials, so it meant hitting the right shoulder button every time I went around a corner. So, one day, I was bicycling down a path, and as I came on a corner, I slammed the right handbrake without thinking, as if it was going send me into a powerslide like in Mario Kart. Fortunately I wasn't going too fast so nothing bad happened and I realized what a stupid thing that was to do, but the sudden stop almost sent me into a river. The river was quite a way down and the path was narrow and didn't have any kind of guard rail, so I probably would have been seriously injured or dead. Thanks, Mario Kart.

Just awesome like that
[up]Related: Don't trust me to drive after I've been playing Grand Theft Auto IV for a while. I get the urge to run people over, disobey every traffic law, and just smash into things figuring that I won't get hurt and that even if I end up trashing my car I can always just kill someone else and steal theirs.

But that happens with everyone, right? ...right guys?sad
Insert witty and clever quip here.

I used to play Oblivion to the point where I'd dream about it and think about whipping out my sword and killing anyone who annoyed me.

I remember one instance where I was on a Minecraft streak with some friends and I got thirsty. I got up to get some soda and punched the kitchen door, thinking that'd open it.

I think playing 3rdStrike for scattered amounts of time has started giving me Hugo's mannerisms o_O

This has started happening to me after playing Pandemic 2 for a while. I came down with the start of a flu virus recently, and I found myself thinking of how it could be spread around while keeping low visibility, and what symptoms I should develop and when, and how to ensure that it actually got to Madagascar before becoming noticeable... I've since decided that playing that game while I'm feeling ill probably isn't the best idea.

For me, it's League of Legends. I keep trying to think of what type of champion I'd be, and what my QWER and basestats would be.

[up]x5: Ironically, Initial D Arcade Stage has done the exact opposite for me: I now find myself instinctively putting my foot on the brake whenever I approach a turn, because if I nick the guardrail, it's REALLY gonna hurt my time and my entire run is shot.

When I play Tribes Ascend, I hear noises from Superbrothers:Sword&Sworcery EP. It's really effing weird.

For the past two days I've been binge-playing Emerald at 12 hire or more a day.

I swear I keep hearing snippets of music from the game.

Also, last week I was on a Left 4 Dead hype. Kept hearing Special Infected music cues and dreamt about the game and I don't even own it!

Tetris is for squares. Puzzle League's where it's really at.

I play it a lot. Close my eyes two seconds later, suddenly colored blocks everywhere (fairies and/or Mario characters and/or Pokemon optional)!

Also once either my or my dad's gut made a sound that I swear sounded identical to the boss explosion sound effect from Yoshi's Island.

Very late into my playthrough of New Vegas, I took the Hand Loader perk and promptly went to work converting my most plentiful ammo types to the stronger, more efficient versions I suddenly knew how to make. Before the final battle in particular I bought all the 5.56mm ammo the Gun Runners' Vendortron had and then broke it all down and built myself a thousand rounds of match-grade ammo for the All-American.

Now I've been replaying FEAR 2, and about halfway through the game I've started seeing workbenches in some of the abandoned areas I've been passing and my first thought is always "oh cool I can make/convert some more ammo hey wait a sec".

Friends of mine used to suggest that I get into S.T.A.L.K.E.R. based on my love of the 3D Fallouts, but unless I'm able to repair my own equipment and make my own ammo I don't think I could stand it at this point.

I have the Portal problem.

I have the TF 2 problem. Everything is probably spies. Even the spies. The things that aren't spies are snipers. But they're probably spies too.

I have several Half Life 2 problems. There's My A/C Sounds Like Manhacks, the Is That Helicopter Alive, and the Can't Step On The Sand.

I have the Dishonored problem: "I'll just blink up there — oh." This sometimes joins forces with the Portal problem.

I have the various Assassin's Creed problems. Being a traceuse, the Improbable Routes Around Town is already an issue, dovetailing nicely with the Bench Scan, the Fear of Walking Quickly, the Head Bow of Stealth, the Oh God My Notoriety, the Bumping Shoulders Is The Worst Thing In The World, and the Roof Archers Everywhere.

"The trick, William Potter, is not minding that it hurts."
I had a minor case, I had just got Luigi's Mansion 2, and I loved it. Several other games I played afterwards, I tried using the Darklight. STUPIDITY AT BEST.
Checkpoints. I've played so many shooters that every time I screw something up, I find myself thinking "I'll just load my last checkpoint!"
First person shooters in general. Everytime I go to a place I haven't been before I start looking for good cover.

Also when I look out over an area from a high point my first thought is always "This will be an excellent sniper position"

I also had the assassins creed thing where I'd look at every wall and figure out the best way to climb it.

For several years, I've had the bleep bloop sound effect from earning an Xbox 360 achievement randomly play in my head, mostly when I'm not even playing the Xbox. I don't think it's ever going to go away, and I'm ok with that.

I've begun to brace for drifting as a passenger in my friends' cars thanks to Mario Kart 8 and Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed.

One time when I was at church, I saw a box labeled ministry, but for a moment I thought it said minisentry.

I was also thinking with portals for a long time.

I was playing VirtualVillagers regularly and during a break I was walking along the street I saw a clump of mushrooms. I automatically looked around for a child. note

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
