When you don't look at your fish in the aquarium because, as the Arilou say, "If I tell you more, you will look where you have never looked before - and when you look, you can and will be seen". And you don't want to be snagged by that fish into *below*...

Or when you see a spider in the church and say, "He's praying to Dogar and Kazon".

When you see an caterpillar crawling  in the ground, you smash it with your boot and shout:
"HA! Take that, slaving alien slime!"

...You actually quote the game to people who have never been exposed to it before. It tends to make you sound a bit like a raving loon.

...you can't stop checking the message boards related to the game despite a decade and a half, a wife and two kids, a college education, and a career all happening since you last actually played the game in ernest.

Heh. With the exception of the wife and kids, this sounds strikingly familiar as well...

I think you're more a fan of the game's universe than of the game itself, then, guesst and Draxas.

Argh! I've actually forgotten if I have a wife since I last quit playing UQM, about 4 years ago... here, let me check.  Grin


So, if you have a wife, you do like this in the evening:
take her
gently wake her
and then perform ribald feats of unsurpassed fertility!
With her consent, of course.

You fall in love with Talana and spend your days drooling over a dusty keyboard, staring wildly at a dimly flickering screen
