I am pretty sure that every gaming addict has to fall asleep while gaming. I know I have! :cwl: It's always because I am trying to get that last piece of gear that I need or I am trying to finish a level. :cwl: How about you? Have you ever fallen asleep while gaming?

I am also guilty of falling asleep while gaming, haha! I mean it's logical if you are playing at late hours and by some chance, you're in your comfy bed and you don't have the lights on.

I am similar to you and get easily a bit addicted and just want to try to get the XY item or just do a tiny bit more!

It actually happened with Minecraft once. I was playing on my Xbox 360 and I remember I was trying to finish a building. I don't even know when but I just closed my eyes and fell asleep, haha. I really wanted to get at least one of the walls done so I was pushing myself. When I woke up I was so confused... it took me a few minutes to realize what just happened.

I am glad that I'm not alone.

I remember this because of it was hilarious, last year I have fallen asleep on my chair in the front of PC when I have played Counter Strike Global Offensive. I was killed and I was waiting for the match to finish and I don't know how I have asleep.

In the next morning, the laugh of my wife waked me up!

Oh my God--great question here--however, it is going to incriminate me.
To my shame, I must admit, that I have fallen asleep while playing, AND, on top of that, spilled my drink all over me, which I realized in the morning, and the first thing I thought was, "Oh no, I hope I didn't soak my controller". Pretty sad.

Actually I've been pretty close to fall sleep while playing, but whenever I feel that tired I rather pause the game to continue later. Maybe is because I feel really uncomfortable when I fall sleep on a chair, sometimes I wake up like 2 hours later and then I can't go back to sleep, so I feel better when I stop and go to bed.

I only fall asleep when playing games while lying down on my bed. I used to fall asleep while reading visual novels on my laptop and while playing 3DS games such as Animal Crossing and Monster Hunter. When falling asleep while playing a game, usually a person will wake up after 2-5 hours, just to turn off the console. I think this is the case for everyone, or that is just for me.

I have played games with drooling eyes but I have never fallen asleep while playing. There are times when my mind signals me to head off to the bed but my heart fails to leave the console. This is a regular battle which I face at least 4-5 times in a week. I give up when I know I can no longer cope up with my sleep or start playing very badly.

I have never fallen asleep while gaming. The tension and adrenaline keep me up. In fact, i have a hard time falling asleep after a good gaming session. I have however fallen asleep in front of the TV more times than I can count.

I think this is happening to me a lot lately. I slept this Saturday while playing the game. My nephew closed the game and put off AC. So I guess age seems to be catching up. I think I played too much of games. And it's kind of exhausting with real life and gaming balance. I guess I have to spend more time offline for this reason.

No, never - and I never fallen asleep also while watching movies, if that counts! When I feel like I'm too tired I usually don't play at all, because I feel I would be completely unproductive and.. just play badly. Also I feel like it's not pretty healthy doing something like playing a videogame while too tired: we need some rest in our lives!

Well, i wish I had this kind of will to go to bed as soon as I feel tired haha. Most of the times after a long day I am tired but still feel like if I go to bed altogether the day will be "cut short". So I go watch a movie or play something. The result? A very tired me the next day. hahaha

I wish I had that kind of stamina, once I get tired my body starts to shut down. First, my thinking ability goes away, next I start feeling overwhelming boredom, and then the micro sleeping starts. And next thing you know I am waking up the next day with a broken back and neck from sleeping in the chair all night lol. :cwl:

Hahaha, I've seen it happen with my parents. Always sleeping around or in front of the TV. Didn't think it was so common though. That said I have slept in the middle of a movie before. They don't keep my mind active as a game does. Even If a movie is very good chances are I can sleep in front of it haha.

I have never slept in the middle of the game, however, sometime I play until I can no longer because of sleepiness. When I have sleeping trouble, I start plaing games. Game tires my mind so much that in a short time I feel to sleepy. However, sometimes sleep does not com easily and I comtinue playing game until I feel exhausted.

Maybe on mobile, but never on my laptop. There was a time when I would go to sleep at 3 AM, because I started getting drowsy around that time. Still, when sleep starts kicking in, I decide to call it a day and rest. I'd rather not let games interfere with my metabolism.

Yes I have. Do you know that feeling when you are so into a game that you cannot refuse but play it. I was into a game one time that I fell asleep 'coz I was playing it for two days straight.
