I always thought it would be interesting to try and 'play' an entire game in your dreams, reliving every part a little each night.

A problem, however would be what to do if you got stuck, how are you gonna look at a guide when you're asleep!! ^^


What game would cheat codes be easier to use than one in your dreams?

That would get really boring really quick. Even if you have a lucid dream every other night, and they last ten minutes, even a short game would take a few months to beat. And that's not even considering memorizing all the small parts of the game irl and such.


Honestly, just wait 10-20 years, technology will get to the point where you don't need to LD to do that.

Some people can experience a hundred years within an hour, so I think that a week within ten minutes is enough. And think about that that you never backtrack, you move quickly, you can remmeber things that have never happened...

not really. Dreams are pretty much in real time. You might feel like you have a really long one, but chances are there are a lot of things that didn't really happen.

Well, Kingdom Hearts is made up of several different FF characters, has a FFish story, and is made by the same company as FF.
To the contrary, you've actually been in nearly every Final Fantasy to date!

None of the FF characters, or worlds were present in the dream so I thought it didn't count. grin

I can see how the words "Final Fantasy" could be taken to mean something very terrifying to the ears of an avid lucid dreamer! lach1

I didn't mean it like that. I've played almost every Final Fantasy game.
I just don't think it would be so fun to be in one.

I've had dozens of Chrono Trigger dreams. I also had one where I was Megaman X. That one was fun.

Honestly though, I'm not a huge fan of the series... (SEGA and Phantasy Star forever!!!) Reno has just kinda become my universal nickname over the years. ^^

Oh, and I knew what you meant painocus, I was just kidding. Yeah, the standard, "you hit me, I hit you" battle system of the Final Fantasy series wouldn't be very fun. I would probably just forget the game and just visit places and kill things!

This is an interesting topic since visualizing a world from an RPG (FF, CT, etc) is something I have often tried to do when I attempt to LD. It's very tough for me to visualize an entire world and the characters within it... though I pulled it off nearly perfectly once, with a pretty bad end result that has deterred me from trying again.

I wouldn't mind trying again, but the difficulty of it is what stops me most of the time. If anyone has any tips, I wouldn't mind hearing them!

does anyone here play morrowind or oblivion?

i think lucid dreaming up those games would be kinda pointless.
you can pretty much do anything you want in the real life game anyway.

it would be cool to "play" Lineage 2 with your friends, but you'll get your own look and your own attack moves, it would be cool boogie

I should try to cast an "aga" at someone tonight =D

Now to decide which one... (i'm thinking Firaga or Blizaga, since Thundaga is usually the one i think of last)

Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross, Alundra, FFVII, FFVIII, FFIX, MGS, Suikoden and Suikoden 2 are the games I like, hope anyone has played games like Alundra (very similar to Zelda) grin

Were the fights turn-based like Final Fantasy or more action based like in the Tales games?
