You know you play too much Defcon when ...

Postby V-Ger » Sat Oct 14, 2006 10:16 pm

... you get outside for the first time after starting the game and your country has been wiped out by nuclear war.

... you wondered why you didn't get a "Launch Detected" warning when North Korea launched their nuclear test.

... you plan your next vacation considering what countries you have wiped out so far.




Any more suggestions?

...when you dream about defending against a North Korean nuclear attack, complete in Defcon graphics. Seriously, I had this a few days ago. :shock:

Me to.

... You hear the sound of a woman coughing whenever it's queit.

(that always happens to me after I play a game too much, I hear the sound effects everywhere. Like Now I keep thinking I hear HL2's gravity gun absorbing things.)

...When you start constructing a huge NORAD command centre in your backyard.

...When you run to your private bunker whenever you see stripes in the air of planes, thinking that they are incoming nukes.

Hey, it's only a midterm, he's got the other half of the term to make it up!

(actually, I've no idea how midterm stuff works; care to enlighten me?)

...when you become worried that nukes are going to come raining down upon the countryside whenever there is a fire drill at school. (No joke...this has actually happened to me. Whether it is good or bad I have yet to figure out.)
...when you become increasingly paranoid about your friends, worried that they'll join your enemies and attack you. (Also real.)


Yes, I probably do play DEFCON a bit much...

When you try to use the mouse wheel to zoom in on some random image you're looking at on your computer. And then realize that your not playing Defcon right now, so it won't work. And then do it again just a few seconds later.

... when you attempt to switch your C drive to IRMB Launch Mode.
... when you wait for some sort of "defcon 3" confirmation before right clicking your mp3's.
"Surely you didn't mean to press that button just then did you?"
"No, nor will i disarm the nukes."
"Oh well, I will have my Fighters shoot them down."
"Sure you will."
"Oh NOES, ITS BEEN PATCHED!!!"

:D

That's a good one!

It's like sometimes when I look at a Starcraft screen shot, I try to scroll it to see another part of the map. :shock:
