I am absolutely lousy at immersing myself in a fictional world, be it in a book or a game. My brain is too quick to remind me that it is only a game and I can't help but see all the moving pieces that shatter the illusion. I feel that I'm missing out on a key part of what makes games interesting, that ability to feel like you are a part of something new and exciting.
Does anyone have any tips they use to immerse themselves in a game? Certain habits, set-up before playing the game, or anything like that? I would appreciate some other people's insights on how they are able to sink entirely into a game's world.
