    As an SeFi type I-I- development, I have noticed that I am mentally overstimulated whenever I play certain computer games. I might play the game for an hour or two. it is a strategy game where I need to construct buildings, collect resources and acquire troops and myth units. Yet whenever I play this for an excessive amount of time, the sensory projection of the game will remain in my mind. I think it may have something to do with my frontal lobe perhaps.
    I will vividly recall the sounds made by various speakers, the music being played and the terrain with all of the characters upon it. However what my mind will do is multiply the amount of soldiers and myth units (for example a phoenix or a cyclops) to such an extent that they will be found streaming out of the shadows excessively. Its like the whole terrain will be swarming with these computer generated units in my brain and I find it almost impossible to turn off. It is only when I am able to fall asleep and wake up the next day that I find relief.
    I definitely think i am experiencing the Se persistence effect. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if there is a possible solution to my problem? Should I perhaps limit the time spent playing the game?

    Dear Elsie
    Yes Tetris effect is the correct term, those images, especially highly detailed moving images and repetitive sounds stay with in the hours after I've played the game.
    Thank you
