Not really, but I’ve always had trouble suspending my disbelief and immersing myself completely in games. My brain has never been able to turn off “analysis mode” when playing games. Every game I’ve played since I was a student has been an examination of what the devs did, how they did it, and whether it worked. That’s how I’ve always enjoyed playing games so it’s totally normal to me.
It’s not unlike a stage magician seeing other stage magicians perform their acts. I admire the artistry and performance of the entire experience and I can think about the way that I would perform a similar trick, but I would probably never believe that the magic is real.
