• Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise.

You always find yourself pressing the pause button when something's going too fast on the computer.

Even worse:

You find yourself moving your finger in the same way you would if you could press the pause button in situations in real life when things go too fast.

I actually do both sometimes...

Anyone else have any such odd problems?

Youre beginning to think of an extra baby, because it will increase your manpowerpool and give you an advantage over your neighbour.

You just bought an addition to the garden so you have more prestige

You rapidly grab the last cornflakes on the shelves of a small store before someone else because of the previous

You tell your child "in order to reduce those badboy points for breaking the lamp you must release two birthday presents from your wish list."

You tell people you did poorly on the exam because you didn't expend enough research points.

You tell the judge the accident was not your fault because the other driver was uncivilized.

You buy a motor boat and display it in your swimming pool in order to increase your prestige.

You claim part of your neighbour's yard because it contains the same species of ants that your yard contains.

You turn one of your rooms into a workshop and try to sell home-made clothes, furniture and paper.

(actually, that one's not a too bad idea...) :rofl:

Your fiancee has learned to accept the fact taht she will learn more than she ever cared to about the 19th centruy in general, and that she will have to look at the screen when you have done something 'impressive'

I also doze off to planning my next moves in class

You try to explain to the people that German was formed by the Conservative Emipre event in 1851
You try to convert some of your friends to soldiers while others to craftsmen
You get to take +5 gas +5money and +5beer due to a friends 'diplomatic insult'
You explain last night like this: "Well, her militancy went up +5 and her consciousness went up +20 because i conqured Austria instead of doing the dishes"
