I know I can't be the only one that has dreams that incorporate gaming elements or dreams about games. The game I find sneaking into my subconscious the most is World of Warcraft. I suppose it doesn't help that I often listen to the soundtracks while falling asleep. (The Eversong Woods music with the cellos and haunting voices is super relaxing.)
I previously shared a very whacked out dream that involved Samodean, Chris Metzen, and a live action zombie demo. I had a LOT of details to share since I wrote it all down as soon as I could after waking up.
More commonly I remember snippets, if that. What I've noticed more lately is that waking up is part of a quest chain.
I've had dreams where hitting the snooze button is a repeatable quest.
I've also had dreams that the “A” button was the snooze button.
Dreams are weird. And yes, that's a scientific term.
Ya know, I think this is why I love to slow time down when my Sims are sleeping. Usually the game will auto-speed up time when the entire household is asleep. I mean, they are sleeping, you don't have anything to manage after all. But, I like to slow it down just to watch the dream bubbles.
I never realized just how creepy that was before.

I’ve rarely been “fortunate” enough to have the video game world seem into my dream world. I remember while younger a dream where Donkey Kong ran by me but that is mostly it.
It’s good to see you again, Syrana!
As a result of Sprink and I’s addiction to the 360, last night I had a dream where I was running through a world like Final Fantasy XIII but I was headshot-ing all the enemies from a distance as per Modern Warfare 2.
Funny thing is, the things/people I was shooting weren’t from any game I know of.
When I dream about WoW, it’s usually something background that I don’t pay that much attention to these days but it definitely happens.
