Do video games affect your mood? I.e. if you play a certain type of game for a while, does it affect how you feel?

We've been playing GTA IV pretty non-stop for the past few days, to get the walkthrough done. It is full of a TON of swearing - pretty much every other word - plus lots of screaming, yelling, shooting, fights, etc.

I've noticed that we then tend to swear more, and have been testy around each other. We had to actually turn down the volume and try to deliberately be nicer to each other to counteract it. It is sort of scary how it can get you "in a mood".

Do you find that happening with you?

No. The only thing it does for me is when I play something too often I will see (sometimes when my eyes are opened too) some of the things in the game and even will dream of it or it will sneak in a dream. I just remembered that I do get angry when I cannot win a level that I have played several times but after I am done being angry that is it, it does not go into the rest of my day.
