      How do you lucid dream a videogame?

      One of my LD goals is to LD myself in a videogame. I was wondering, how do you do it. I mean things such as character selection, health bars, energy meters, etc. How do they appear in a dream and what do they look like?

      If I tried this, I would try summoning a virtual reality headset, putting it on and playing whatever game on that. I figure that once immersed enough in the game that I forget about the headset, the headset will go away, resulting in me being in the game.

      I remember playing Doom a good amount of time, and seeing in on my dreams sometimes. So it would be a good idea to play the game you wanna dream a lot. I think this is called the Tetris effect:
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetris_effect
      The Tetris effect (also known as Tetris Syndrome) occurs when people devote so much time and attention to an activity that it begins to pattern their thoughts, mental images, and dreams. It takes its name from the video game Tetris.

      This may not answer your question, but anyway, I once entered a lucid dream by dreaming of playing a game. It was the night after I actually played the game, but with a different class than usually. So I assume that the novelty of the behavior somehow affected my unconscious memory, leaking out in the form of dream. I realized very quickly that this wasn't real - this must be a game, and I am going to fully immerse into my character. The real "this is a dream" feeling came only gradually. The gear on my body was made from hard plastic, low-poly and faked. I was holding a low-poly pistol and when I tried to shoot from it, the trigger didn't move

      I have game dreams quite often including virtual reality game style dreams where I'm inside the game. I get them too often actually. Some of them have interfaces such as health bars, skills etc. In lucids I have either become lucid while within a game, turned on my computer or console to open a game within the dream, or use virtual reality headset to get in a game. Some of the virtual reality style dreams where I'm inside the game don't have interface visible all the time. Instead I get a sort of holographic representation where and when I need it. I have recently played an immersive VR version of Overwatch game in a dream. It was fun. Over the last couple of years I noticed that dream control within the confines of the game mechanics is easier when in a game dream. ^^

      I've quite frequently had dreams about playing a game I often used to play as a kid. It was called Super Monkey Ball, and I still have dreams about it, including lucid ones -- in fact that became one of my lucidity triggers! It tends to blend and shift between the experience of me "playing" the game, being in the game, or merely observing it.

      Good question. I dream of video games. Mario, Pokemon, Zelda, and then some games that only exist in my dreams. One lucid dream I had, my friend and I went in front of the TV and "blue skidooed" into the screen. We had to fight through various levels. In another game I remember being lucid and activating the game through a computer interface. If I can think of the specific DJ entry or if I have any in the next few nights I'll post the excerpt here.
      Here is what I am up to in the dream world!

      I get the same type of dream far too often too. I never have any UI in the dream. Oddly enough, most of my game dreams are in third-person looking down at myself. This often desensitizes my body's senses and makes the dream feel very much like playing a videogame.

      While I've never actively sought out to be playing a game while in a lucid, my best advice would be to become engrossed in some game you are playing in the dream, similar to how you might enter a movie in the dream. This is how I often enter videogame dreams in non-lucids when I don't start out in the game.
