  • You walk down a hall and wonder what brush shape they used to make the opening at the end. (I'm serious. I was thinking about a hall in Hammer terms before.)
  • You wonder if astronauts see the void when they fly through the sky and into space.
  • You make maps of places like your school.
  • Instead of taking a vacation, you just make a map of a tropical paradise and wear sunglasses and a hat while playing it.
  • You give entities the names of your friends and say you enjoy spending time with them, while they wonder what you're talking about.
  • When you see a scientist on TV, you amuse yourself with the idea of placing a barnacle above their head.
  • When you roll off of your bed and wake up, you complain about misplaced info_player_start entities.
  • You change a light bulb by giving it a new texture and light entity.
  • When you see a security guard, you ponder the idea of making them open a secret door for you with a scripted_sequence.
  • When you DO make them open a secret door for you.
  • You believe that in order to talk to a marine, you need to first set them to prisoners in their properties.
  • When you see a window, you decide to test whether it's set to be unbreakable or a func_wall.
  • You get in an elevator and wonder how long it'll take to reach the next path_corner.
  • When politicians are debating, you find that it would be much better to have their properties set to gag.
  • When you stumble and fall, you complain about shallow carving in the room.
Okay, you can add your own if you want. :D

-When your watching The Lord of The Rings you think to yourself, "I could map that."

When (like me!) you see a part in ANY film, and decide you want to map it, or want to create models like the characters.

  • When you start discussing mapping with your parents, who don't understand a word of it.
  • When you're at school, there are 3 working computers in the room, the other 2 are broken, you're on 1 browsing the HL forums, and other people are on the other 2, playing those crappy games at, and, and your friends keep bugging you about when you're going to come off, because they want to play the crappy games at the aforementioned sites, and think you're wasting their playing time. I know I'm guilty.

I got some for cs. (keep in mind that I have actually DONE all of these)
You know that you have been playing too much Counter Strike when:
-When you try to log on to you computer with username amx_slap
  • When you get mad because you REALLY think your username is amx_slap
-When you get mad at someone, you think about amx_slaying them.
-When you day-dream about addons for your server
-When you talk to your brother and make analogies about the conversation with references to cs.

Oh and I forgot these:
-When you see the word "assault" and you think of the level
-when you talk to a friend on instant messanger and press y before most of the things you say (or whatever it is that you have txt messages set to for Half Life)
-When you accidentally start putting in console commands in a computer written essay for school, then realize it right after your done.

"-When you see a gun on tv and recognize it and then start talking to people about how good and bad it is"

That's something I've done before. People actually think you're serious until you mention how well the particular weapon handles against headcrabs. LOL!

Here's another:
  • When you compile a new map, you stare at the screen, counting the seconds as you watch the process window intently when you know it's going to take more than a few minutes to finish. (I'm not sure why I do that.)

You know when you've been playing too much Counter-Strike when:
-When you start to watch 'World's Wildest Police Videos 5'

-When you bother to watch cheesy action films just to see if there might be a good CS map based on it.

-When you make a Bomb Defusal map based on the place you hate the most

-When you make a Hostage Rescue map based around the people you dislike

-When you cant be bothered to learn how to place pod-bot waypoints in your map properly because it's too much of an effort and wonder why your bots dont do anything - (I'm guilty of that! :) )

Black Mesa is a real place, but I don't think there's a research facility's just the name of the location.

-When someone in your form spills very strong acid on one of your friends during a chemistry lesson, and you feel sorry that the victim wasn't wearing an HEV suit...but he survived with a bandaged hand, and the knowledge that he's getting close to being able to sue the guy, since that person also injured another of my friends' heads (Again, by accident). True story.


-You wonder why security guards with pistols don't have an M4A1 strapped to their back (Ambient.Impact's SD Barney has an M4 on his back, but he doesn't use it)

-You think all security guards should wear HEV suits (Like the barney in my av)

-Your glasses are so dirty that they appear to be opaque, and you look for a place to download the transparency dlls from (Not true, I don't wear glasses)

-You keep bugging everyone around you for a Barney with an Uzi, and they have no idea what you are on about (Half true, I've been bugging people on the HIT forums for that)

-You start getting people with low-def hl model avatars to get a new one with an SD model (Haven't done it yet...)

Anyway, back on topic:

-When your internet is even slower than normal, and you type in r_speeds 1 as an URL, to check the ipoly (Internet poly)

-When you see a guy with a crowbar, and compare it to the HL one (Guilty)

-When you're playing 007: Everything or Nothing, and grab a terrorist's crowbar to recreate HL (Guilty for a few seconds, I then got shot dead 'cos I had to run to the guy who was shooting)


-You can't read your email because your internet is malfunctioning, and you then say "I can't access my files, I can't answer my mail. I haven't even been able to get into my office!"

-When you're watching Black Books, series 3, episode 1, and compare the evil guy who runs Goliath Books to Dr. Rosenberg (He looks very similar! And I'm guilty, obviously)

  • when you've been mapping on a school night, look at your watch, and find out school starts in 30 min.
  • when you call all security guards barny.
  • When you call all people in uniform grunts.
  • when you have 923 forum posts on this site (Now 924)
  • when you jump off something, you wonder how much dammage you took.
  • when you look at something in real life and say (I could map that) while everyone around you startes in wonder.
  • when you jump on elevators to try and see if you will fall and die (I do that in HL too!)
