Kind of. I sometime try to imagine what a character would be thinking/say.

As an example I can't get through a mission of XCOM without internally voicing the characters choices and reactions.

Sometimes I'll make up a narrative or order/assignment in my head to justify killing 10 deathclaws.

I get really bored.

Conversations? Nah. What I do is I create a story that makes sense for each character. With their strengths and flaws, and with their own gear. I like to roleplay so my game is a little more personal. Not really for XCOM, though. Something like Fallout and Fable.

NOTE! I don't mean MMO roleplay where I pretend to be someone and yiff people or whatever.

I don't believe you. I wasn't thinking about it until you brought it up. You dirty man/woman/child.

Okay I admit it, I am the biggest furry you will ever meet. I have 4 costumes and wear them for our monthly gatherings and at all the cons.

THAT WAS A JOKE! I am in fact Helios from Deus Ex. I don't like furries, okay. :C

I voted no, but now that I think about it, I have sort of done this before. Mostly when something in-game happens that strikes me as funny because the characters would have no idea what was happening to them. Like glitches and stuff.

Oh, as another example, when Elizabeth picks her first lock and mentions that Booker would be surprised what she knows I imagined him saying:

"Do you know what a ******* is? 'Cause I got three dollars with your name on it."

I'm just gonna leave that fully edited out.

I also practice my stripper small talk when she throws you money and you hold it up for a second while looking at her as seen here:

No, but sometimes when I play rpgs I'll read the dialogue out loud in what I imagine is the characters voice.

I'm weird.

Nah, I usually do it after. I'll think about what I just saw and go from there. I'll fill in missing bits myself and depending on how good I find the game I'll even write my stuff down.
