You Know You're Addicted When... [Incidental Spoilers]

posted by ivan11111 on - last edited - Viewed by 132 users

So I've been plugging away at Sam and Max 201, and got mildly stuck on the "lack of stockings" puzzle. I'd been plodding around for a while, trying to find ways of removing one or another person's socks and I got a bit frustrated, so i gave up for a bit and headed downstairs to do some laundry. When i saw, in the basket, a dirty old sock at the top of the pile I actually thought "Yes! Got it!" Just for a split second, but long enough for me to feel rather embarassed with myself.

Anyone else had this? Life becoming adventure games?

    Oh...well...that peed on my cornflakes didn't it.

  • With this titles, I expected some sort of those "You Know You Play Too Much (insert title here) When..." lists around. If there is no such list yet for Sam & Max, we should start it right here. :)

  • I've had dreams where I solved a puzzle. Unfortunately, the solution in my dreams didn't exist.

    Yes, I agree!

    I'll start.

    You know you're addicted when...everytime you see the acronym "S & M" you immediately think of a pair of anthropromorphic freelnace police...no matter how wrong you may be.

    And you know what I mean by wrong! :p

  • ...When you find yourself saying, "You crack me up, little buddy" to all of your posture challenged friends.

    ...When you see a container of Tang on the counter and automatically yell "Taaaaaaannnngggggg!"

    ...When you take said container and use a Sharpie to change the name to "Banang".

    ...When you start cussing in long-hand. @#$&*!

    ...When you go to the carival hoping to see a giraffe necked girl reading bedtime stories to a frozen bigfoot.

    ...You start doing things monthy.

    Welp, that's all I got.

  • Here is what I could think of:

    ... when you start fighting for the phone.
    ... when you hum the office tune etc. all day.
    ... when you have a cabinet full of souvenirs from your former rivals.
    ... including a tied up rival itself.
    ... when you have shops in your neighborhood in which you are the only customer.
    ... when you're searching for hell on subway maps.
    ... when you randomly shoot out of windows.
    ... when you expect enemies to answer in your language.
    ... when you start buying the games more than once.
    ... when you start punching your best friend high into the air all the time.
    ... when you suspect your goldfish for a conspiracy.
    ... when you buy a pong machine and try to put a cartridge into it.
    ... when your coat-hanger is an important part for TV reception.

    And learn the lyrics of World of Max.

  • I know it too, but I never tried to learn it. I just memorised it by listening to it over and over and over.

    First of all, about the original topic, I've done stuff like that too. Not with Sam & Max, but some other games. My favourite time when that happened was when I was playing too much Morrowind and tried to cast night eye when I wasn't on the computer. It had no effect on the characters in the book I was reading, who had just entered a dark room.

    I'd add to the list, but my brain's fried. It's friend from roleplaying Sam, so I supposed this is on topic.

    Oh! You mean....

    You know you are addicted to Sam & Max when you live in New York
