When I start playing NSMB DS and I make a jump I realize halfway through that I might not make, I'll shake the DS thinking that I'll do that mid-air spin-jump stall.

The same applies to me for SM64 after getting too accustomed to SMG's Spin mechanic.

On a related note, I've mistakenly called several of my friends "Mario" on different occasions.

I've been experiencing it with going from NSMB Wii to NSMB DS.

When I start playing NSMB DS and I make a jump I realize halfway through that I might not make, I'll shake the DS thinking that I'll do that mid-air spin-jump stall.

Same.

That happened to me whenever I played NSMBDS or SMW after playing SMG for too long. I think I mentioned that in here before.

It always disturbs me a bit when this topic is right next to Things That Made You Poop A Little in the unread topics.

I guess I could make a thread entitled "Favorite Table Stools That Made You Poop A Little"
Formerly quite reasonable.

I potentially almost damaged my GCN once when, after having played SMG, I returned to SMS with a corded controller...

After playing Metroid Prime 2 for a little while, I feel like I'm going to start getting eaten alive by the atmosphere because I'm not inside a bubble of light.

Which, if you think about it, is a direct reversal of the traditional gamer's mindset.

Today while driving down my street, I saw a deer running alongside my car, and my brain wanted me to go into Dead Eye and shoot it in the head, then stop the car and get out and skin it.

I just got through playing alot of New SMBW, and then played the ds game. I wondered why Mario wasn't staying in the air longer when I shook the ds.. (I realise there have been similar stories throughout the thread..)

I had the exact same thing back in the day, except with a running dog.

I just saw this thread for the first time and thought, "LD got a lot of hits."  I know it should have been "posts," but I guess my brain makes typos too ;)  The reason I thought it was a new thread is 1) I'd never seen it, 2) The first and last post were in July, and 3) I'm dumb like that.  Anyway, I thought it was such a great thread that I started reading the whole thing from the beginning and suddenly found myself thinking, "MEGABYTE POSTED!"  That's when I realized my folly. 

After playing guitar on Guitar Hero or Rock Band for a while I can't play a real guitar for crap, but this isn't really bleedthrough since no one can tell the difference :p 

I've had bleedthrough like moments before, but I realize what I'm thinking so that probably doesn't count.  On the other hand, I've often had a sort of haze or disconnection after playing for a long time or watching a movie in a theater.  Once in college after watching a movie with my wife I treated a red light like a stop sign without realizing it until the blue lights from the cop that was right behind me woke me from my trance.  That was scary.  That cop had to actually wait for traffic before going through the intersection.  I'm surprised he didn't give me a ticket.

I had the worst case of Tetris effect ever back when I was playing Cleopatra Fortune for hours a day. Doesn't happen with any other puzzle game, though.

This may not really be bleedthrough, but... post-Arkham Asylum, I found myself wanting to use Detective Mode in Uncharted 2, on account of my difficulty in picking out things in the surroundings on my blurry TV.

Well, to be fair, it would be nice to be able to see which thugs are covered from head to toe in armor before you start a firefight.

After I was playing Uncharted 2, and after playing Metroid Prime 2 a bit (still need to finish my current run), I kept trying to take cover when I was fighting Space Pirates.  Which would also be nice, because those Dark Troopers can ruin you on Hypermode when you still don't have the Light Beam.
