Gaming: the successful hypnotist
Have you ever heard of that conspiracy theory where the government is hypnotising our youth through games? Well it turns out that there may be some truth in that.
You are feeling sleepy, very sleepy. Photo by Lawrencedwolf. Being in a hypnotic state is a different experience depending on the person. However, many people feel some common things: separation from outside happenings, feeling at one with the universe, a decreased sense of self, blackness, altered sense of time, and loss of spontaneous movement and thoughts.
Meditation in the same effects on a person; the only difference is that meditation le to more relaxed muscles. Participating in an activity that requires repetitive physical movement, can cause a trance-like state.
As a matter of fact, there is a long history of rituals and dances that feel hypnotic. For example, the Turkish Whirling Dervish.
This dance consists of only one movement: spinning around in one spot. You spin me right around baby, right around.

For example, the game. Photo by Gabriele Cirulli.
While not every gameplay is identical, sustained playing can lead to a trance-like state like the one achieved in the whirling dervish, or highway hypnosis. Ever missed your bus stop because you were playing a game?

Thank you Sabrina! Glad you got back home eventually though. This is a very well-written post, Syafiqah. I was just in the tram the other day, playing with my phone, and I totally missed my stop! I ended up having to walk a couple blocks back. Very true! I was more focused on movement and hypnotism this time, but visuals definitely play a good part too. Good point.
Cool post! A hypnotised player is a long-term player. Thanks Adrian, pretty sure its called a hypnosis virtuoso. This was such a fun read!
