Thought we should have our own of these but can only think of a few so please contribute.

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

....You refer to your pockets as, 'My inventory'

....You do a search on your computer for the word walkthru and find 76 results

....You check Gameboomers each morning before breakfast/coffee/cigarette/feeding the dog/cat/family

.....When asked for directions to the station, it's not just, Down the road and turn right; it's, Along this tree lined, victorian looking, avenue under the bright glow of the electric lighting in a northerly direction towards the junction at the far end. Upon reaching the crossroads with the old weather beaten and dilapidated hotel on the corner there is a road leading west which heads towards the centre of town and a road leading eastwards towards the train station. You wust turn in an easterly direction and proceed along this......etc, etc

When ever you go someplace new you check all cabinets, drawers, and open and close all the doors.


New defence for Wynona Ryder, she wasn't shop lifting she was just collecting inventory.

lol

Any time I go to the doctor's I always keep looking at those plastic disposable gloves and elastic tubing and have to fight the urge to grab some, cause well... you never know what you might need that day.

Also you have definitely been playing to long when every time you enter a room you look for alternative exits.

ALso when your idea of financial planning is limited to charting all the future releases month by month and drawing up a budget projection so you can make sure you can BAAG all of them. laugh

...when you finish asking someone a question, you ask again just to see if you get a different answer.

or, even worse...when everytime you looke at something, you say the same thing. like, you wake up every morning, look at you bedside drawer and say: "It's my bedside drawer. There's nothing of interest inside.".

cheers!

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

Dinner for 4 consists of TV Dinners served WELL done at 8pm....

Your smallest child thinks his/her name is "Just a sec."

Every scrap of paper within reach has some sort of hieroglyphic, mayan symbol, rune, or maze drawn upon it...including the phone bill.

When faced with the dilema of being locked out of your car you think about using the fish you just bought as a means of opening it.

Each person you know in real life you silently associate with an in-game character. Including yourself. wink

I work in a medical office and decided not to order a medical coding reference book because it had the picture of a SLIDER PUZZLE on the cover.

Yikes!

First, hello to everyone. It's my first post, so don't expect a brilliant answer, but, well, there it goes.
In my experience, you've been playing an adventure for too long when you start to fear for your own life and watch around just to check nothing unusual things are taking place when Gabriel K.(I mean, me; no, I mean the character) is in a dangerous situation...

You know you've overdone games when you're afraid to go anywhere dark for fear of being eaten by a grue!

Also when you're solving puzzles in your sleep.

You know you're playing too many adventure games when you automatically look for strange things on the ground to click on! Or when you want to pry up a sewer lid to see what's hidden under it. smile
