By that I mean by playing a game(like Tetris) for an extended period of time to the point were you start seeing things from the game in your everyday life.

This happened to me recently after I started playing Catherine. I'd start seeing sliding blocks at work and even in my sleep.
Currently playing: COD: BOII, Hitman Absolution, Infamous Collection.

The best and most messed up for me was I was working/living third shift and I had a morning class but had been playing Lumines Plus on PS2 all night. I went to class the next morning and I kept seeing Lumines blocks forming around my professors afro. It was honestly pretty cool. Nothing like drug free hallucinations.

I remember a particular summer where all a friend and I would do is play tony hawk 2, eventually to the point where every time I saw an edge I would look at it as something to be grinded. Also, I've specifically suffered from a literal tetris effect in that I played so much tetris that I began to see falling blocks when I closed my eyes, and had nightmares that lines of tetrominos would stack up in the playing field perfectly but never clear.

I actually had the exact same thing, sliding blocks from catherine. I have had the tetris effect as well, I think only certain types of people are more prone to getting these things.

Yes! And I absolutely hate it.

I can't play any games like Tetris, columns, Catherine etc. any longer...
