    Talking about ‘brains filling in gaps’ ...
    I recall playing online Colin McRae for hours then going to bed ..as I lay back and closed my eyes I could STILL see the roads and corners flying towards me !!

    I’ve got an even crazier story as well !!

    I remember as a kid going float fishing with some family friends for the day, that night when i shut my eyes I could see the luminous tip of the float bobbing about in my vision.

    I played Elder Scrolls Oblivion way too much on PS3, on my walk to work i used to pass a "community garden" where they were growing native flora, i'd "see" plants from the game among them and be tempted to stop and pick some......

    Well ....

    I got seriously addicted to playing online multiplayer Call of Duty2
    I even joined a clan and played for hours every night - problem was it was an American clan who played from about 1am or 2am onwards !!

    Anyways being the clan sniper I spent hours looking over the vast landscapes of the game , quite often fields stretching for miles ..

    One time after a long session I went downstairs for some cornflakes and I recall looking at the big painting ( print ) on the opposite wall -it was a massive forest landscape picture and I could SEE tiny little guys running in and out of the trees !!

    Scary !!!

    Default Any gamers here?

    Sooooo after a lot of faffing around I finally managed to install my old COD2 game onto our PC

    Played about 20 minutes in a small online DeathMatch game

    There were only 8 HUMAN players but it was more than enough when I was constantly fine tuning all the settings

    I used the rather pitiful in game search facility
