You know you've been playing adventure games too long when:

--you eat soup from the microwave for every meal for a week, because going to the grocery store would interfere with your in-game flow....you're on a roll and can't be distracted

--your cat is mad because you're always on the computer and she begins to unwind all the toilet paper.....only to be confronted by your puzzled face wondering if you could piece it back together like you did the torn paper puzzle in the game you're playing

--the only thing you take time to make is coffee

--you find yourself doing your homework in the wee hours of the morning because, "Dammit, Larry Laffer needs me!"

--you dream of being sent to Syberia and it's a GOOD thing

--you know that if your friends DO give up on you and send you to the Sanitarium, you'll be able to survive, because you did, afterall, help Max to survive

--you start telling your friends and family when to eat, sleep, pee and get in the hot tub, and you start spouting at the dinner table, "This graw is fredishay."

--no one will talk to you anymore because they can't understand why your right forefinger keeps twitching each time you ask them a question



By the way....I love this thread too! It makes me feel sort of "normal." laugh

You know you've been playing adventure games too long when....

... You push the handle on every toilet just to see if it will flush...

...You carry around the urn of a deceased relative "just in case the Iuxpi show up!"...

...At easter time you are disappointed the leftover colored eggs in the fridge don't reverse time!"

FUNNY THREAD laugh smile

I have had so much fun reading this thread. Thanks ThunderChild for starting it. I can relate to everything said here, but especially cracked up over Jen's remark about using a fish to unlock the car door.

I know I've been playing Adventure games too long since almost every day some musical refrain sticks in my mind and I can't get rid of it until I figure out what Adventure game used it. When it lasts more than a couple of days, I have to go back and restore likely episodes in the most likely games. That can be a terrible interruption, but I have to do it since otherwise that blasted refrain begins to dominate me. frown

I love this one as well!

- when you cannot go into a library without searching for secret doors
- you touch every plant you see just in case it might reveal a secret passage
- when using public transportation you wait for a map to appear, so you can click on it, to get you to the desired place
- you try to use the "space" button when someone is talking to you to skip the conversation
- you think closed doors will open once you have completed the necessary task
- you talk to every person you meet... they might give you a hint
- you think every computer is turned on all the time and consists only of emails and files that are important.

ROTFL! I'm currently playing Bad Mojo, love being a cockroach, exploring the bathroom. (The toilet seat makes such lovely sticky sucking sounds.) laugh

And you also know you've played too many adventure games when you're trying to get hints from two 9-year-old boys you're babysitting: "Suppose you're a wizard called Rincewind and you have a Luggage following you around and you don't know how to..."

You've played too long when

--you've arranged a scavanger/treasure hunt and say 'Let the pixel hunt begin.'

--start leaving messages on pictures or look for them on the back of paintings.

You know when you played too many adventure games when:

You come home with a hat and a trench coat and tell your husband. "Honey you would look great in these" (Tex Murphy-wannabee)

You know when you played too many adventure games when:

You try to stuff things like ladders, bowls of hot water, a screwdriver, and a fish (red herring?) in your pants!
