Did you dream about video games last night? Playing a video game can symbolize an escape from reality. If the person playing is absorbed into their world and ignores everyone else, others may feel neglected since they’re so focused on something that isn’t shared between them. Depending on who’s playing with you or what type of game being played will affect how a dream interprets this as well. For example, if there are only two people at each end of the television screen- one shooting guns while another fires rockets- then fighting against someone could represent trying to fight off problems coming up in our lives today.
Don’t be freaked out if you had a dream about playing your favorite game the night before it came out. Your mind is just getting ready for all of that time spent on gaming as soon as it’s released!
If you dreamed up an impossible level in Mario Bros last night and then woke up to find yourself downloading new levels from Nintendo – congrats! You’re not crazy; this was one lucid dream we can nod our heads at because there are many more interpretations than “you really want to play.”
Dream about playing video games with others
Dreaming of playing an online video game or MMO like WoW (World of Warcraft) suggests you need to get out more and find that sense of belonging.
Dream about taking down a boss in a game with a friend
You need to work with others if you want to take down a boss in the video game. When we cooperate, it’s easier for us both and more rewarding because we’re helping each other out!
Dream about grinding/ working hard over a game
The game is a reflection of the tedium and monotony that we face in our daily lives. One might have their dreams littered with grinding or killing monsters if they are feeling bored, disappointed, or overly frustrated by life as it stands now.
Dream about player-killing
It’s always such a bummer when you’re trying to have fun in the dream world, and another player takes it upon themselves to kill everyone else. It can be frustrating if your waking life is largely affected by PvP or Player-Killing, which may reflect that brutality on others through their dreams.
Dream interpretations of different video games
When we dream about playing a game that is not part of our usual repertoire, the interpretation can be more challenging. For example, if we dream about chess and it does not make sense to us, then there may be some hidden meaning for which you should look deeper into yourself before making any assumptions.
Dream about city-building simulation games
A lot of people dream about playing video games. If you’re dreaming about Clash of Clans, Starcraft, this means that you have the power to manipulate others into doing what they want them to do.
Dream about role-playing/ adventure games
Our dreams are often a reflection of who we want to be in life. For example, if one is playing as the hero and defeating opponents like zombies or robots in their dream-world, they may feel that these obstacles represent issues they refuse to face waking up into real life.
Dream about building adventure games
Minecraft and Terraria are both games that allow for creativity. They represent your inner need to express yourself creatively, whether you’re building or adventuring.
Dream about shooting games
towards others. Consider checking out the gun dream interpretations or, if you are feeling especially angry, some of our other articles on improving relationships with violence in a controlled environment!
Dreams about racing games
In your dreams, you’re always the number 1 racer. You live in a fast-paced environment and need to race hard to get ahead of everyone else if you want victory.
Dreams about gambling games
You often find yourself at the casino or betting on sports. You enjoy that adrenaline rush and love to take risks, but in other aspects of your life, you might be too cautious for a change.
You’re always looking for an opportunity to play poker with friends, bet on horses for next week’s football game.
Dreams about fighting games
The idea that you need to come face-to-face and confront people with whom you have issues suggests a certain level of bravery.
Dream about an actual gameplay
Depending on what happens inside the game, they can give you more nightmares.
Some games are so terrifying that players have to take a break from playing them or even stop altogether because of their vivid and disturbing imagery.
Dream about attempting to finish a difficult mission in a game
When you’re going through a tough time, it’s important to keep your head up and try harder. If things don’t work out as planned or expected, though, maybe the project is too difficult for you at this point in life.
Dream about leveling up in a video game
You could learn new skills and “become stronger” in your daily grind to get a sense of progress inside the game. You may be ready to take on more complicated challenges.
Dream about dying inside a video game
You are a brave person. You have been in tough situations before, and you dared to try again, even when it seemed impossible at times. Give yourself credit for your persistence because this is what life has taught you so far!
Dream about being lost inside a video game.
You may feel lost in the real world, but you know that video games are not. The make of reality is complicated and confusing at times; people can be confused about rules or expectations others have for them. This uncertainty might reflect your feelings about being lost outside of these boundaries. For example, if your parents want you to take up a career like doctoring or lawyering even though this isn’t what you want to do with yourself, then maybe one day, when we’re all playing our favorite game-you might dream about getting stuck inside it instead of escaping from guilt into fantasy as most gamers will do on occasion during gameplay hours (even those who curse themselves out).
Background elements in the dream
Finally, treat all symbols that typically occur in a dream and place them into the vibrant world of video games. For example, a dream about an erupting volcano with lava flowing from its mouth suggests you’re hiding your anger deep down inside where it can’t affect anyone else’s life but yours. We don’t often see this because these types of things happen behind closed doors — sometimes even in worlds completely different from our own!
Finally, put everything important from your dreams to good use: turn those symbolic elements such as volcanoes or fire-spouting monsters into interactive game items for players who want more out of their sleep time experience!
Dream about being video game characters
You could be feeling manipulated by the people around you. You might feel like they control your life and make all of the decisions for you, similar to how a robot would act in a video game without any personality or decision-making power. How do these feelings make you feel?
A Sword Art Online dream indicates that you seek ambition and drive. Perhaps you want to feel alive again after realizing how repetitive your life becomes when it’s not all about work. But if these dangers are happening in real life instead of the digital world though, then this might mean that there could be something more serious going on with your health or well-being, so make sure to pay attention before it becomes too late!
What if you had control over your actions while being a video game hero? Consider the character that you have become in the dream. These characters represent role models with traits or purposes that you want to inherit when playing games — like saving people from their situations, like “Mario.” Your ultimate goal of this type of “hero” will depend on what is going through your mind at first glance. You may find yourself seeking love as Mario (a Nintendo-created protagonist) did, or feeling relief for an ex who has been taken by someone else or entered into a new relationship after breaking up with them!
Dreams about e-sports or competitive gaming
Dreaming about playing competitive video games means you take your hobbies seriously and want to prove that you’re the best. If it feels like a hobby, not work, then maybe there’s something more interesting for you out in the world which would make life less boring?
