Isn't the best feeling in the world, when a game really immerses you?

I have a question. When you play games, it takes so time before you realize that its a great experience or not. But when a great game really catches you and you lose yourself in its story, gameplay and world, isn't that one of the best experience you can have? I would say that maybe its even better than sex and last longer also. How do you feel when you play a great game? That is when it really takes its hold of you!

Also, what was the last game that did that to you?

AC: Black Flag. Totally surprised at how well this game came out. One of the most immersive experiences I've ever had with a gamer. It has beautiful visuals, smooth gameplay and killer sound design. It has an amazing atmosphere.

Immersion is: Playing Half-Life and not realizing the house is burning down, your wife left you, and you haven't eaten for a week.

I don't think it's anywhere near that good.

It's nice and all, but games are just games. No way that they can match great IRL experiences.

I have not had that happen to me in a while. It is like I am no longer open to it. In the 90's it only took a few sprites a vague story about saving the world and some tunes to get me into it. Now , multi-million dollar productions leave me kind of unaffected.

I know it might sound wrong, but the only games that managed to do a little which I played in the last year are Mass Effect 3 and GTA V.

That's why I love DayZ. It's a buggy mess, controls awkwardly, but it's by far the most immersive and heat-pounding game I've ever played.

It is fine until you realize you are a total loser after playing a game for 92 hours straight!
