I've seen a couple posters here bring up OCD before when discussing games and was wondering if it is prevalent thing.

Not in-game really, but my mousepad has to be exactly on the edges of my table or I get annoyed.
Same goes for most things and angles, everything has to be on exactly 90degrees angle.

I'm not diagnosed with it, but I do enjoy completing everything in a game for the most part. It feels good to get 100% in games. Though, I find as I age, I care less and less for it, I mostly just play until I stop having fun.

Not OCD, but I sometimes tend to go OCPD on games sometimes. I always have to pick up that heart or rupee even when I don't need it. Or backtrack once I reach the end of a level to make sure I didn't miss anything. Or always add skill points to my character in multiples of 5. Or save right before making a decision so I can go back and try the other options until I find the one that's the best.

ITT: people think they have OCD because they collect everything they can in a game

Not that much right now actually. It used to be really bad though. ._. It was killing the fun in games.

Now it's just stuff around the house that bothers me, like disorganized dishes or a toothpaste tube that someone pressed the middle instead of pressing the end. Ugh.

This. Completing a game or exploring every area isn't the same as real OCD. It's also crazy how many people now days claim to have OCD because something not being perfectly straight or exact sort of annoys them

People confuse OCPD for OCD all the time.
