Had a fairly vivid dream last night, must of been right before I woke up - since I remember it.

I and some forum folks here (people I've never met, don't know except for their forum activity) were designing and playtesting a science fiction wargame. A board game apparently. Crazy to dream about games or game design, anybody else nuts like me?

PS, My dream game is a Science Fiction based wargame, kind of like Command Modern Naval Ops meets The Operational Art of War in a War in the Pacific AE type scope. With a full robust editor. I'm 65 I'll never live to see a game like it. If I ever win the lottery Matrix can expect a call from me though. Ha!

I guess I'm different in that I don't dream of the game, I dream of the husband, who just happens to like war games.

I have plenty of games, I have no one to play them against.

Yeah and you thought that was just a guy lament.

Yup. After 15+ years on the UV/WiTP/WiTP:AE franchise, I still have dreams about the game.

Hey that is quite funny! It took me 25 years to get my wife to play games like WOW and Diablo. Wargames no, she has zero interest. Niether does my daughter who is a gamer type like her dad, everything but wargames.

I hope you find the perfect match someday soon! And yes that is a different take on the subject. Ha! Made me smile...

My first ever video game was Dead Space. I had to stop playing it before I went to bed or I had bad dreams. Also high blood pressure and a tendency to jump at unexpected noises. But it wore off and now I dream of winning a campaign in War In The East. That's just a daydream though - never gonna happen!

I used to dream I was still playing Skyrim if I played it before going to bed.

On Days when I am playing games I often dream of it on those nights. Also may have trouble falling asleep as my mind keeps going over the game.

Come to think about it, the term dream may be better described as Nightmare.

I dream of a Mechwarrior game. Either a grand strategy, or an MMO. There are some FPS out there, that were lame. There is one on kickstarter, that may pan out. Neither are matching what I have in my head. I even have the sides (for PvP), tech trees, and toon types & specs for the MMO. I started to draw out the outline until I found out how badly hosed the license is on that franchise. Too bad, too. I really think the MMO would have caught on.

I remember way back to when I was trying to learn Ageods' first civil war game. I was having problems grasping certain game mechanics like supply,CP and division and corp formation.
One night, in a dream, it all fell into place and I really had this "eureka" moment. The next day I played and had no trouble with it. It was a cool experience.

MechWarrior Online
And don't diss it. Gameplay is just fine, and I rate it over earlier MechWarrior games

For (nearly) exact BattleTech experience in video game form, best game of choice is MegaMek. You can get even closer board game feel by playing hot seat on sizable tablet. MekWars takes it to MMO with Inner Sphere at stake.

No computer replicas of BattleForce or Inner Sphere in Flames that I know of.

I've had a few game code programming dreams over the past year with Empires in Arms. More like nightmares. LOL

I started playing on a C64 and never, ever once, dreamt about games. Maybe I did and I forgot (as it happens with dreams) but nothing I'm aware of.

Not dissing anything It's just not what I have in mind. For an MMO, I have something in mind of a cross between DAoC & SWG (crafting, multiple empires, PvP etc.). For a Grand Strategy game I have something along the lines of WitP:AE. Pipe dream

At times I dream about playing games. Sometimes the games are real games, and sometimes they are games my imagination invented.

Not dreams so much as thinking about strategy for the next session before I finally nod off.

I've had nightmares every night going as far back as I can remember so say about age 5 or so..very rarely my dreams aren't nightmares..however when I was a lot younger I did dream about a game a couple of times.

I've read that most people dream in black and white but my dreams are full colour and I feel pain in them..
