When Used

You turn on the game and play it for a while. Then you play it for a while longer. Then you take a break from playing it to play it some more. Then instead of sleeping you keep playing it, and instead of going to work the next day you play it some more.

You get really good at it! While you're in the zone, it's like time has slowed down -- you make expert moves without even having to think about them. You're really proud of it. It's all you can talk about.

After about a month of this, your friends stage an intervention and take the game away from you. It's okay, though. You're still playing it. In your head. All the time.

You acquire a skill: Watch.gif Brain Games

You shouldn't start down that road again.

References

  • The "blocks falling in slow motion" clearly means this is a Tetris device, and it becoming an obsession to the point that you're playing it in your head may be a reference to the Tetris effect.
  • More generally, this item is based on, and/or a parody of, the (contentious) idea that playing puzzle games enhances your brainpower.
