like rob, i'm a bugger for leaving games un-finished and when i stop playing a game i seem to treat it like ive finished it 6 times and are sick of it, so i spend 1-2 hours of looking for a game to play when i have 17 games that ive 5 minutes of
This reminds me of the time I played all of Dark souls 3 (both DLC included) in a single night.
When I usurped the fire and made londor whole after battling through the ruins of Lothric castle, conquered frozen forest of Ariandel, and claimed the ring city as my own....it was 6 am and my dad was heading to work.
He asked if I was heading off to bed yet, and like a lunatic I told him, "Nope", and put in Dark souls remaster...only to fall asleep on the sofa 5 minutes later
I always know it's time to go to bed when my character starts randomly teleporting into walls. Like I round a corner and start walking down a hall, and the next thing I know I'm opening my eyes and my character is walking into a wall over and over. How long have I been like that? 30 seconds? 5 minutes? 20 minutes?!
Okay, the only time I know its time to go to bed is when I feel the pain in both my stomach and temples. I get a pulsing feeling in my head and my stomach feels as if its going through a grinder. That's when I know its time.
One of the signs I experienced was playing a game in an outrageously dumb way. Like following and assassinating random innocents in Assassin’s Creed, or jumping off cliffs at different heights to see just how far I can climb to jump off and survive.
Or like in GTA, you know you’re bored when you actually follow traffic rules correctly. 😂
I am going with wall walking.When you snap to reality and see your avatar running into the wall. This is more true when you last remembered fighting a hoard of baddies or a boss but cant quite remember how you got here. My best example was PS1 shadow man, woke up or snapped out of it walking into a wall with no idea where I was or how I got there.
You forgot another one Rob. When you don’t realize you closed your eyes for a moment and started to fall asleep just to suddenly wake yourself up and find out that either your character fell of a cliff or you’re running to a wall or mountain for leaving your thumb on the joystick. Guilty as charged.
This is mostly true for me, but when I hit the point where my fingers are smoothly pressing/tapping the buttons/keys/screen, I say there for about 3 hours before taking an abrupt nose dive in hand eye coordination and passing out at 4 or 5 in the morning.
I don't really feel hungry or thirsty when gaming. If I'm staying up later than I should or waking up early to play, then the blast of tiredness does hit. Starting to suck happens more when I'm rushing, such as when I'm trying to shoehorn some alliance mission fights in during my breaks at work. When I'm tired, I'm more likely to chose games where timing isn't so important, such as an old school RPG (turn based, choosing options off a menu).
I remember when I used to be able to spend all night grinding final fantasy games, then go to work and be totally fine.
Now I'm in my mind thirties. If I stay up past 1am I know I'll pay for it the next day.
You forgot 1 important 1 that I have hit a few times that bit i want to say around 5 am where you get all excited (in a bad way) and are so tired you forget your off work the next day and start planning your sickie so you can sleep
I was JUST having an argument with my lady about "Its 7 in the morning, have you gone to bed yet? Why are you still awake??" She just couldn't understand my response to those questions.. My response being "Well, cause sleep is boring!"
This vid is spot on
I've played Fortnite for 24 hours straight once (my friends supported me by playing duo's or squads with me) and we all had the same Sid effect... our minds felt numb and we didn't know what we were doing our bodies just played for us without us thinking.
Oh my God you described my every weekend Lmao! I know the end may have been partially in jest but I've made the decision too many times to power thru until the next night until a "sensible?" time to catch up on 2 nights of sleep.
I'm a pc player but if RDR2 wasn't my reasoning for buying a ps4 pro soon, it would be you guys I've always loved your videos!
My 7 stages:
1-all my friends leave
2-I can barley feel anything anymore
3-I start to suck
4- my eyes just close and I almost doze off
5-I scroll through the game store and I don’t play games
6-I want to sleep
7- I dont sleep and I have a fine day tomorrow
The sunlight reason is the one that I've dealt with most in my life. It's hard to pull away from a great adventure sometimes. I already know I will be losing sleep when Red Dead 2 and Kingdom Hearts 3 releases. Guess now's the time to start buying stock in Red Bull.
