The Burning Question: Have you ever fallen asleep mid-game?

I nearly made this the poll for the week, but I realised I wanted to hear a lot more than just seeing if people clicked “yes”, “no”, “MID-ACTION” or “during long cutscenes”.

I have a rather… complicated relationship with sleep. For years I battled with what I thought was insomnia. My family thought I had narcolepsy and I got in trouble for dozing off at work and people didn’t want to travel in a vehicle with me. It took years to work out what the problem was, but some days it still pops up at the weirdest of times. One such time is during grinding. If I spend enough time doing the exact same thing again and again, especially on a comfortable couch, I tend to eventually “rest my eyes” for a while. (The snoring gives it away.)

My question is who else can fall asleep while playing games. And not just yes/ no, I want to know if you can fall asleep mid-action, like during a fight, or playing a game with a friend and not just those long cutscenes that go on forever (especially when they aren’t voiced). Not that those aren’t good examples too.

So if you ever woke up to a game over screen, or NPCs waiting for you to talk to them or found yourself running into a wall, I want to know about it. And possibly sign us all up for good sleep seminars or something.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
