I’ve Had Three Video Game Dreams In My Life
- One of those skeletons from Zelda II killing me, violently. It really scared me. I guess this was around 1987 when the game was released but…that seems like too long ago. It’s possible that I’m old now, though.
- Diablo II, before it’s release, just after graduating from high school (2000). I was drunk, sleeping in my Volvo at Greg’s dad’s under-construction house. In the dream I imagined everything in the game (as I had not yet played it).
- Getting killed in Battlefield 1942. This was when I was keeping a dream journal in college (around 2002 maybe). Not sure why I was keeping a dream journal.
All the games have a two in the title.
…I gain no deeper knowledge of myself. No new knowledge can be extracted from my telling. This confession has meant…nothing.
