Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Video games are everywhere in today’s culture, so it is not abnormal to dream about one, especially if you happen to play them often.

As a result there are varied meanings when it comes to dreaming of video games.

If you have dreamed of playing the video game Halo, in which you must fight aliens on an alien world in order to protect earth, this is a sign that you fear change as well as strangers and there is an inundation of both of these kinds of energies in your life at the time of the dream.

In this dream you may have

  • Been playing the video games Halo, Pac Man, Duck Hunt or Mario Brothers.
  • Stayed up all night playing video games.
  • Had your video games stolen.
  • Had a partner ask you to choose between them and the video games.

Positive changes are afoot if

  • You chose your lover over the video games.
  • You conquered the aliens in the video game.
  • You felt confident that you could beat whatever video game you play.
  • You have a balance of gaming and living in your life in the dream.

Detailed dream meaning

When one dreams of playing Mario Brothers the video game, this is a sign of desires to connect to a more childlike and innocent time and is also evidence of the anxiety currently plaguing the dreamer, attempting to be purged. These dreams can connect you to a simpler time in your life – just like any games or things that bring up nostalgia for the past.

Dreams of Duck Hunt the video game, this is a dream which shows that the dreamer is attempting to find focus in life and will have the opportunity to fine tune their future soon.

Playing Pac Man is a sign of nostalgia and often is a sign of new relationships forming. When you dream that you are playing or that you are Pac Man, consider going after the object of your desire at this time.

Video games can cause problems in relationships. If you are dreaming that you are arguing with someone else in your dream about the relationship versus the video game then you may want to consider how you have not been focusing on your relationship. Remember that the game can be an obstacle in relationships and it could be your own guilt about not spending enough time with your partner. Keep in mind… Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned… for Sega!

Having your life like a video game in a dream has been connected with being too childish in your waking life or handing things in an immature manner. Not everything in life is a game and now is likely a time to be more serious or focused in the waking world.

Consider ways in which you are acting out your own fantasies in video game dreams as well. Because of the fantastical nature of the game sometimes these dreams are just representations of wishes that you want to accomplish that your psyche has over developed or exaggerated.

Excitement or anticipation over a video game is also a dream that is representative of simply wanting something to happen in your waking world. If you are satisfied with a new video game or if you are unhappy – both reactions are indicative of how you feel regarding goal completion in your life.

This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life

  • Obsession over video games has gotten out of control
  • Relationship concerns
  • Childish endeavors overtaking one’s life
  • Being irresponsible
  • Ignoring your partner (romantically)
