This is a non-games related example, but yesterday I got in a big-ass fight with my dad, wherein I said "dad" a lot. So a few hours later, I get a phone call from my girlfriend. I called her "dad" at least five times.

On a more gamesy note, I saw a movie the other day on TV that had a dude in a ten-gallon hat. I immediately identified him in my head as an Engineer.

When I was dating my ex-girlfriend Meagan, I sometimes slipped up and addressed my mother by her name.
Formerly quite reasonable.

I gotta stop playing this game: today, driving on my street again, this time at night, a rabbit almost ran under my wheel. Instead of swerving away, my mental reflex was, "oh, just another dumb rabbit" and almost tried to run it over. Then, no joke, I had the exact same mental process occur as every time I see a rabbit in RDR: "I feel bad running over this bunny because I like bunnies IRL"

I just looked at my RL watch trying to check what time it was in Dead Rising. I think that's the first I've had simultaneous bleedthrough while still playing the game itself.

Well, I think I've had a few times where I craned my neck or tilted in vain when the camera wasn't working very well.

Same. Just imagine how often we'll be doing that with the 3DS.

It's not gaming-related, but I once attempted to "click" the text in the liners notes of a CD. Ronnie Van Zandt's name was highlighted and underlined in blue, so I instinctively poked it.

My 4-year-old daughter plays Nick Jr. games on DS and on their website.  A couple of times in real life she's said something like, "When you see a (insert object here), click on it."

The other day I was boiling water to make tea, and got frustrated it was taking so long. I then said in front of my brother and BP "Why isn't this water loading!?"
No! I don't want that!

Does that mean that a watched game never loads?

The other night, as my friends and I were loading vomit-stained beddings into the washing machine, I momentarily wondered what the soiled pillows and sheets would be alchemized into.

Playing so much Reach has given me repeated strong urges to jump out in front of oncoming cars and activate my Armor Lock at the last possible moment, causing them to exploding into flaming wreckage against my invincible body.

A very dangerous bleedthrough.

What? I do that all the time, and I've never played Halo: Reach.

It was a really foggy morning today, and for a second I thought, "Man, I should increase the render distance..."
