Do you... Move, lean, dodge, etc. when you play games?

For example, when you fly through a gap do you lean to the side as if 'you' are actually there? Or perhaps when you a driving, do you lean over to make that tight turn?

I think this is what we refer to as 'immersion' I suppose, eh? Haha!

I'm not referring to Kinect or anything, I mean holding a regular controller and doing these things like this.

I've done this on occasion, lol.

When at a tense or difficult part of a game, I'll wipe my hands on my pants, even if they're not sweaty. Gaming Compulsion #41, I suppose.

My dad does this to an almost cartoonish degree. I never understood it.

I like to lean and rub my shoulder toward this young lad I play game with.

Well, ever since I mounted my TV on my wall a little too high, I have to stand up to play video games (sounds bad, but it helps improve my posture a little). I've noticed that I am a lot more active when playing a game, whether it's moving left and right trying to get that extra inch in Trials, or just moving my arms more when playing CoD.

No. But I do a lot of dodge duck dip dive...and dodge.

But seriously. When I'm trying to be stealthy, I'll lean to the side like I'm trying to get a better angle around the corner.

I remember when the Nintendo first came out. and my Aunt would play Super Mario Bros. and she was about to fall into a pit. She would run up to the TV and try to catch him. Was very entertaining seeing her do this.
