What silly things do you do in real life while playing?

Recommended Posts

I had a friend point out recently that when on heading out on a loot run, like on Timberwolf and I'm heading to the summit with a mostly empty pack I tend to hum or sing "The Happy Wanderer" and when coming back I tend to hum or sing the Volga Boatman song.  What silly things do you all do?

Jump out of my skin if the baby cries / the dog comes in the room / any random noise occurs!

Sounds like you have a story that would be a great contribution to this thread:

I don't currently have it set up this way, but - back when I used to put some serious time into this game to the detriment of my physical activity - I had my magnetrainer (a mini exercise pedal machine) set up in front of my living room gaming set-up.  Whenever I was walking / running in game, I would pedal slower or faster depending... I really should get that set up again now that I think about it... :)

Drink too much.

 

Every time there is a bit of a wait, and my left hand is free, I pick up my glass of plonk and have a sip.

Welcome my friend to the Drinkerloper club.

Spin my chair around to see if I can rotate before a wolf eats my face off. 

Sucks when my knees hit the side of the desk sometimes... but I still do it.  Because if my character is going to get hurt I will too, for #immersion.

Hah same here!  Although for me it's mostly when traveling.  I tap Q (my custom hotkey for auto-walk cruise control), and occasionally course correct with A/D or the mouse.  Which frees up my hands to take a drink.  TLD is the only game that happens with, just due to the amount of time where I don't need to be actively doing something, but I can't just get up and walk away.

Another TLDism is I will go about doing some daily chores, while my character in the game is cooking food or boiling water.  Since I have a 4x day length multiplier, 3 in-game minutes pass for every minute of real time.  So if it takes an hour and a half (roughly) to melt and boil a full pot of water, that's a half hour in real-time I can get stuff done around the house.

Why is that drinking seems to compliment this game so well?  Perhaps those few second timers other have mentioned.

I've managed to cut my consumption by finding a way to "speed up" game play so I find myself using that more and more often which means less frequent sips.
