Sometimes after a long period of play I start to look around when I am outside I start to think about waht places in the city would make a good CS map.
I can constantly look at the top of building or in high up windows just to see if there is a sniper up there.
Also watchign films that have gunshots in them, soo many times I hear a desert eagle sound but see a crappy gun in the hands of the actor.
The sound quality of CS is amazing and they seem to use the same sound effects library that film producers use.

Certainly I have gotten into games quite heavily (especially RPG's), but never changes how I see reality.
The only thing I have done that has really changed how I see reality is Skateboarding, pretty much everything I see has something about it that I would like to skate on .

Now now careful there, proceed with caution when your line of thought is nearing the Jack Thompson Danger Zone.
even the quirkiest elements of a game have permeated your mind and warped your perception of reality somewhat.
It's not really exclusive to gaming. After a skiing vacation I always have the urge to ride my bicycle faster. The examples brought up in the article are rather odd cases. "Warp your sense of reality" is also somewhat exaggerated, to say the least - we're not talking about surreal landscape transformations.

Or wandering around and having random strangers give me "quests" and pay me, rather than actually "working."
Or somehow saving the world and having an exciting adventure all in one month.
Games are nice for they give me a sense of purpose, though when I sit down and think about what I'm really doing... haha, yeah what a waste of time.

but, my little brother when ever he takes a liking for a new game, he NEVER shuts up about it, its all he ever talks about
he always tries to get real life involved in it, like he relates real life stuff to his fictional crap
its usually runescape, but neopets, habbo, anything. its SO annoying
