    According to some bint over at Destructoid anyway.

    So, thanks to your gaming habits, how have you controlled your dreams recently?

    Please post pictures of what you dreamt about and explain how you controlled it, otherwise this thread may become silly......

    Might explain why I always wake up sticking to the bed.

    I think I have more weird dreams that are influenced by the types of games, movies and books I expose myself to. Plus I'm able to remember a lot of them.

    Not sure if this has anything to do with being a gamer though!

    I control my Xbox dreams more easily than my PS3 dreams, certainly.

    I haven't found this to be true, personally. My dreams tend toward the unfolding narrative type and while I'm in them, I'm completely unaware I'm dreaming, or even me half the time.

    I do get GUI overlap in some dreams though and often don't have feet when I look down. That's not control, though and it makes it harder to judge jumps =)

    If we control our dreams more what does that say about the time I dreamt me and Keith Chegwin teamed up to assassinate the president of the United States?

    I dreamed last night that I was clearing a room ready for a party that I was going to dj. But everytime I cleared the room out, I'd go back in the room and someone had put more tables in which I had to clear out again. Then I woke up to the alarm, promptly snoozed it, and said out loud to myself, "Right, lets clear that fucking room again", went back to sleep and cleared it up, all the time with gritty shaker by david holmes playing over and over again. So I dunno what any of that means, controlling dreams-wise

    I'm now at work and that song will not get out of my head

    If you want to remember your dreams more clearly put a nicotine patch on before you go to bed

    I had a dream that I met David Bowie last night. Doesn't really fit the topic as I didn't control it, but just wanted to share.

    Last night a friend of mine confessed to me how he wanted to do pharmacy, while we were riding on the London Eye. Help, what does this mean?
