What are your video game dreams?
On certain occasions, I get dreams that are like a video game in their nature. Since I was four, I've been at playing video games. I still do today, but less than 1/5 of the hourage as I used to. Occasionally, I get a dream based on a video game, often one that I've played in excess from long ago. Zeliard, Bubsy, and Metroid are commonly focused in these dreams. These dreams are like video games by the way they look and feel. Very often, they are well-forgotten.
Noteworthy dreams in this category:
2-5: I wished this dream would repeat once more as I liked it a lot. It's well-forgotten.
2-9: This dream I find unusual by its nature and I don't understand how I ended up getting this one.
2-11: This dream forecasted the future. Two weeks after the dream occurred, I got views just like the dream showed me.
2-12: I would like to make this dream into an actual game.
2-18: This is the oldest recalled dream to date clear back to 1992 or 1993!
2-19: I wished this dream would repeat once more as I liked it a lot.
2-24: This dream led to the concept and idea for George Game 13, my high-speed do-anything 3D platform game.
2-32: I think this dream occurred more than once.
2-46: This dream suggested a method for the clouds in my first 2D game as, at the time, I was stumped on how to do them.
2-97: This dream is very well-liked and wished I could get a repeat of it.
2-102: I wished that this game was a real game.
2-105: I wished that the game at the end of the dream was a real game. It's also well-liked and I wished it would repeat.
Dream 2-141: Lava swimming in NES Metroid with SNES character

I'm playing a Metroid game with the NES version's graphics but the character image and quality from Super Metroid (SNES). There were a few enemies that I can recall, but don't recall their looks or even their class or type. I do know that they had NES-style image and animation quality. All I recall, nothing new to my dreams, is playing in the red lava at the bottom. Unique is the fact, in some spots, lava was on the ceiling in the form of a 16x16 blob - it had the same effect as the "lake" though normal gravity still applies. After a bit of lava swimming, I defeated a few enemies to restore energy then resumed lava swimming for 30 more seconds - the dream ended at this point.
Dream 2-142: Lava swimming in NES Norfair remake

I have very little recalled about this Metroid lava swimming dream. I'm playing an apparent remake of the original Metroid on the NES, keeping all the graphics and game play, but with different level design. The primary area of focus is Norfair. There was quite a bit of action occurring near the starting area. It's all I recall.
Dream 2-143: Bubsy glide hops in expanded village remake
Occurred on Jan 14, 2011; general - 4??; nature - 8!??; story - 2??; scenery - 1.8???; fun - 5??; scary - 1???; weird - 1.5??; scenery - 10% in tact; story - 18% in tact; dream - 15% in tact
Bubsy's village world gets a remake in this dream. It becomes more hilly, has double the vertical scrolling span limit, and uses parallax scrolling like Platform Masters. The ocean is visible in the background. The graphics were 8-bit color so the channels of fog are easy to see. It's a noticeable but slight improvement over the original. As to what happened, it's quite vague. I do recall using glide hops on a certain enemy to get extremely high - the lower 1/6 of the screen had the simple-looking, mostly untextured grass. I had to guess when to fall, due to the 15 px/fr limit, to max out the speed. At first, I had timing trouble, but, later on, easily got fast. This took place on the part where the slopes go up and right, where you find the pianos and cave entrances in the second level. The enemies were all insects though, no woolies.
Dream 2-144: Playing in the gelroid of a Zeliard remake
Occurred on Apr 22, 2011; general - 1.5???; nature - 2.5??; story - 1.2??; scenery - 2???; fun - 2??; scary - 1.5???; weird - 1.8??; scenery - 8% in tact!; story - 15% in tact; dream - 12% in tact
In this dream, I'm playing a remake of Zeliard, of which level 5 is covered (the one with the deadly blue gelroid). In this dream, it was still just as blue and deadly. The graphics have the resolution of 1024x768 or so. The caves had 32-bit color as well. The black background was still present. The layout of the caves is somewhat different and the slopes can be climbed without those sandals (these are obtained in level 6, the caves with a gold theme). The gelroid slopes with the slopes as well and all motion is 60 fps and pixel precise instead of being based on a panel system and update frequency. I recall playing around with the gelroid, especially from the area nearest to the boss. One area had a pool that was quite deep, 3 panels deep, but you could only stand in it at the usual depth of one panel. Health got rather low at times so I just reaccumulated. I don't recall enemies in this dream (no eyeballs, red blobs, or those zombie-like things (baseballs and eggs as I called the first two in the past)). I don't recall anything else.
