I used to think that God controlled whether or not you would catch a pokemon when you throw a pokeball in pokemon red version. Like he was watching you play, and if you were being bad he wouldn't let you catch anything. so every time I threw a pokeball in those games I'd remind God of all the good things I did that day to convince him to allow me to catch the pokeball.

When I was 8, (I'm 10) I was convinced that I could use a Gameshark 64 to make game characters come out of the TV screen. I thought I could create a code for my Zelda games that could let you say anything you want to characters, and I thought if I said "Come out of the screen!" it would actually work!

I used to shutoff my computer immediately whenever windows 95 said I had executed an illegal operation. I was always scared the police were going to show up.

Until the age of 12, I was convinced that video games literally turned your brains to mush, which would then dribble out of your nose until you became really really stupid. I taunted/warned my best friend's brothers with this, but they just laughed and I never really considered that they might be right!

When I was about seven (maybe eight, maybe six but around that age) I dreamt that I was trying to play games on my favorite website in the middle of the night but found out that at nighttime, websites with games on them turn into "serious" websites and all the games become unavailable.

I also used to have this recurrent dream about finding out that I'd left a computer game abandoned and the sprites were crying.

I was curious and wondered if either of them were true, but didn't test either of them because with the first one, I didn't want to break the rules and with the second one, I didn't want to make the poor sprites sad.

We used to have this old baseball video game when I was a kid. When You hit the ball a certain way it would foul and the ball would pop straight up toward the screen. My father told me if you hit it hard enough it could break through the screen.

I thought that when I was playing Game Boy, and I would say something realated to why I was winning, the Game Boy would hear me, and make me lose. So when I played Game boy, I used to put tape in my mouth.

When I was about 5 years old, my friend and I would play Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire for the N64.
When we got to the second level there would be Wampas which we called "The Hairy Guys"
We would always open up the cages and make them come out.
Than we would run away and a few second later go back and pause really quickly when we saw them coming.
They freaked us out.
Than after awhile him and I would pretend they were chasing us in real life and run around in my basement.

When I was about 10,I started believeing that the cards in Spider Solitare(the one on the computer)had feelings.I wanted toi be 'fair' to them,so I made sure the cards that appeared first got put in the deck first,and that all cards where acknowledged so that none of them felt left out.I even started apologizing to them if I made a bad choice.I even said 'Goodbye!Enjoy the fireworks!'if I won the game.

That was the same year my class didn't get to do anything fun because 3 people where acting out.Odd,isn't it?

My little sister's favorite game on the computer is a game called I Spy, which she calls "high spy". Whenever she sees someone using a computer, no matter what they're doing, she assumes that they're playing their own version of "high spy".

This is going to sound weird but the game Pokemon taught me to read and learn new words as a little kid. But I never comprehended what the attack "SELFDESTRUCT" was supposed to be. It's basically "self destruct" in all caps and with no space in the middle. I remember thinking it was a powerful attack (even if it made your Pokemon faint) and deserved a powerful sounding name. I pronounced it "Self destraudaduct".
