Weird things you do while playing games?

So, in this topic we share some weird things we tend to do while playing games.

I'll start with this.

I tend to sometimes turn off the in-game HUD and pretend I'm showcasing a game at E3 and I move slowly while commentating the gameplay in my head.

If I get shot in a fps, I shoot myself in the same spot in real life. It's not healthy but it's pretty fun, except for my missing eye part.

Not really weird, but I listen to random YouTube video's whilst playing games. Unless its very story focused.

Lol, I don't commentate the game in my head, but I turn off the HUD alot. I love the immersion. In fact, immersion is WHY I play games. They have the ability to immerse us unlike any other form of storytelling or entertainment, and I love it.

A weird thing I do sometimes is turn off the in-game music and leave only the ambient sound/sound effects/voices on. I love music, but it can also be immersion breaking when it's coming from "nowhere". (P.S. I'm also an audio engineer major, so...I like to listen to the audio :D)

I'm sooo gonna try this.

Btw, what do I do if I get shot by a rocket launcher in-game?

In character action games like Castlevania Lords of Shadow or something, if I die in some stupid way (falling off a cliff etc), I'll say in my head "And our brave Gabriel's story came to an end as he stumbled off a cliff". Something like that atleast.

I play my 3ds while playing League of Legends. Usually when playing support, I just AFK in the brush.

You can spend $400 on a console and $400 on a cheap PC, or you can spend $800 to build your own and have the best of both worlds.
