Hi folks, this thread is just a bit of fun for everyone who plays LBP. I've seen similar threads in other places and thought we should have one!

"You know you've been playing LBP too much when..."

- you spill your drink and search for the 'rewind' button
- you can't stop yourself from wanting to cover your real-life friends in stickers
- something good happens in real life, and you want to perform a funky Sack dance
- you open your front door and wish you could add a 'wood creak' sound
- you see pistons on everything

I'm sure you've got loads more!

Cheers,
MrsSpookyBuz

I am an addict. Thank you MrsSpookyBuz for this thread, now maybe my wife may understand as the three previous pages describe me to a 'T'.

"You know your an addict when..."

... just the name of a cheese titillates.

... you have no free-time.

... you take a nap to stay-up late!

... just one more level, turns into a sleepless night... A-gain!

... you think of your controller as a teddy bear.

... you forgo old friends in favor of new ones... you've never even met.

... Nobody's around to answer your question, "Pandemic!?! What Pandemic?"

... When you finally decide to do the responsible thing and escape the Planets' gravitational pull... you turn around and type 'Gravity' into the Search Engine. Enthused about the results, you muse, "Everytime I think I'm out... they pull me back in again!" And then type 'Godfather' into Search.

... the kids run around the house singing those catchy little songs.

Lol, these are priceless

Some stuff that happened to me

When you mess something up and start searching for "try again"
When you really want to open popit, then realise it doesn't exist
When your other games are sitting on a shelf collecting dust
When people send you PSN messages telling you that you play lbp too much, even though they are playing lbp at that time
