You walk into someone's office and hear "Ain't that a kick to the head" by Dean Martin playing on their iPhone and all you can think of is Fall Out 3: New Vegas.

I thought "when you buy the latest and greatest GPU despite the stupid price hike" but then again, such a person probably bought that GPU before the price hike smile

When you're walking through the woods, thinking, "This looks like the scene from Witcher," paddling down a river or stream, thinking, "This looks like that scene from Far Cry," looking up at the sky and thinking, "That looks like the sky in FSX".......etc.....

When you are watching a good, engrossing movie and thinking to yourself at the same time "what game do I have in my library that I can play afterwards that is sort of like this."

When you are watching a good, engrossing movie and wishing so bad that there was a game based on it.

If it takes a video game to turn people on to Dean Martin's wonderful music, I'm all for it.

I debated a flat earther once. He got so mad he stormed off saying he would walk to the edge of the earth and prove me wrong. He'll come around eventually.

When your are in a dead sleep and are having a dream about being chased by an enemy plane and you do a split S in the dream and at the same time you rapidly roll over off your back onto your stomach and it wakes you up.

When you are about to approach a flat bed tow truck when the bed is on the ramp position and you start to press the accelerator until you realize that this isn't GTA V (happened to me twice when I played many hours of GTA).

In 2014 I was deployed to Afghanistan, and even as an A-10 Crew Chief we had to always carry our M-16 when we weren't actually working on the flight line. I remember going to chow or something one night with about six other guys and we were walking through big gravel between tow giant tents...it was foggy...the portable lights were raised up and cutting through the fog...all I could think about was Call of Duty...lol.

I've been playing a ton of Rocksmith 2014 Remastered on my Fender guitar, and every once in awhile while I'm laying in bed and have a song in my head that I play, my fretting hand (usually my pinky finger) will twitch like I'm grabbing a string. smile

Yup, I've been there done that with the "answering the door with the TrackIR hat and clip on" deal.
