When I got hooked on Morrowind in middle school it occurred to me to quicksave before a test at school.

What’s yours?

    Really? “Urge to do moves/actions from it in real life” is the same as thinking or dreaming about it?

    From my experience with the Tetris effect, not one occurrence fits his description, but I experience the Tetris effect in most weeks in my life. That’s why it feels like such a disconnected description for me.

      I agree they’re not 1:1 but imo you can’t feel the “actions in real life” part without being heavily incepted by a video game’s loops, like in your thoughts and dreams.

      But I get it a lot less because I don’t game as much these days
