In game intruding on real world


Recommended Posts

So after I stopped tonight, I found myself doing work on my desktop and making motions with my hands to turn in the screen! On the desktop.  Perhaps I am tired, but it was funny.  Just can't face a different direction inside youtube!

The disconnects can get embarrassing. I still remember the first time I kept clicking on a window on my screen trying to get it to pop up over another window that was partially obscuring it... and then realized that the 'other window' was a sheet of paper that I'd leaned up against the monitor.

Other than significant use of flight in-game boosting my rem-stage dreams of flying after a meal of mushroom pizza, I've not had any real world experiences.  The game usually messes with me when I switch over to another game, and my muscle memory of controls is all skewed.

In the city where I work, there are countless little concrete markers with brass plaques that greatly resemble those in CoH.

Every time I pass one, I have to fight the urge to pull over and click on it.

Even when the game was dead!

Once, when CoH was still live I was I went to pick up my nephew from some school function that had him and his little friends all sweaty and as I handed out water bottles I said "Gather for RA".  Didn't even realize it until my nephew called me out on it (he played a little with me supervising when he was like 8).

All hail RA!

Its easy to criticize a suggestion but can you suggest an alternative?

You mean the WASD controls?  I've done that too after logging off. 

 

There's also a little plaque/marker in front of a building I walk by going to work, I keep wanting to mouse my little blue hand over it to read it...

Yep.  To be honest, the mouse didn't work for that either! 😄
