Meaning of Video Games Dreams | Dream Interpretation

Dream interpretations were found from 1 different sources.


Video games are symbolic of total and utter escapism and mindless thought. They are a modern phenomenon that will have very different symbolic meaning based on your personal relationship to them.

The diehard gamer will have a joyous experience of that escapism, while a critic might hold a more judgmental perspective. Where you stand on this continuum will provide the full picture for your interpretation. There is a perspective of video games that connects to a type of skill building; however, those skills have very little practical value outside of the realm of playing the game repeatedly. This is where the element of mindless thought enters into the symbolic meaning of video games.

The presence of a video game in a dream is an ironic appearance of detachment and should be considered as a possible defense against whatever the unconscious mind may be attempting to express.

If someone in your dream is playing a video game, understanding the character aspect in you that the person represents will identify what area of your consciousness is avoiding reality.

Psychological / emotional perspective: Specific games such as football, baseball, rugby and cricket (which are team games) represent for many the strong ability to identify with a ‘tribe’ or a group of people. They indicate the way in which we gain identity and how we connect with people.

Decisions may need to be made where we have to gauge the result of our action and take into account our opponent’s reaction.... Dream Meanings of Versatile

Video

This modern-day invention of moving pictures captured through a portable and ubiquitously accessible format pervades our culture in such an enormous way that there are literally dozens of ways in which the concept of “video” connects to other elements of symbolism. At the heart of it, video relates to our ability to create in our own image the experience of being human. We make movies and those movies become a permanent record of our journey. Once the lofty realm of only a privileged few, the technology of video has been made accessible to the masses. There are two sensibilities that must be considered when this symbol appears in a dream.

The first is the creative impulse to capture an element of life unfolding.

The ability to record, pause, fast-forward, and watch at your leisure instills a sense of control in the meaning of video in a dream.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
