After playing the game for a long time, it turns out many people will actually appear “terminally ill” symptoms but not everyone knows it, but it turns out everyone really feels like they’re having these conditioned reflexes without even knowing it. These symptoms, as noted, will become very difficult to fix.
First symptom: Obsession with bullets
This is a very common symptom in shooting games. Even when the magazine has 29/30 bullets, the first thing that gamer does is change bullets. There are gamers obsessed to the point of being annoyed with their guns having little ammunition. If the gun has no ammunition to replace, or not enough to fill the vacant space, what they do is throw the gun away to pick up another gun.
Second symptom: Unable to rest on the ground
This is a relatively common symptom that many people also experience. It is a player who cannot keep his character moving as usual but will constantly jump. Just like the first phenomenon, this symptom is common in shooters or sandbox titles. Even many gamers believe that jumping can avoid bullets and increase movement speed. Eventually, the jumping in the game will become unconscious, ie dancing without any purpose.
Third symptom: Addiction to picking things
This is a “disease” that appears in many games that need to accumulate items and equipment such as survival games. There are players who only take care of pick-ups, loot items without even caring about whether or not they really need it. Sometimes, this addiction will lead to danger for yourself and your teammates. But, as said, this symptom became a habit and then evolved into a gamer’s reflex when playing the game, seeing that the item was picked up, all dangers counted later.
Fourth symptom: “Addiction” delay
That means changing weapons constantly, especially in shooting games. Just moving, gamers will constantly press the button to change weapons, from guns to knives, from knives to pistols. Of course, this is usually not necessary and gamers only follow the reflexes. Perhaps, does this make players feel more professional? It is like the first symptom, sometimes it will result in the inability to react when encountering the enemy, resulting in unjust death.
Fifth ovulation: “Tracking disorder”
People who experience this symptom often play survival games or race cars. When hiding and tracking enemies, the player’s body will accidentally turn to the side and feel that so he will have a better view. Of course, this is ridiculous. This is also a conditioned reflex and many gamers will do it unconsciously.
The sixth symptom: Spam Tab
This disease mainly occurs with FPS or MOBA players when constantly checking the scoreboard although sometimes it does not change anything. Right from the start, the first job they will do is spam the Tab button continuously. After defeating the opponent, press Tab, after being defeated also press Tab. Sometimes nothing happens, also constantly Tab.
The above symptoms are considered “incurable diseases” because it is difficult to correct for people who encounter this habit. Because it will become reflex and sometimes, gamers will feel the change is not necessary and it will not affect the game. And whether it affects or not, gamers can draw the results for themselves.
