I’ve Had Three Video Game Dreams In My Life



  1. 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.
  2. 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).
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
