You all know the gamer’s stare. You’ve seen it in playtests. It’s that one where the eyes glaze over, movement stops except for the hands, flow engages, and the person is out of contact.
It’s just a hunch, but has anyone actually watched video of people reading books or watching tv or movies? I know when I watch people watch a drama series they freeze and just get the same expression on their face for hours. Is this a universal phenomenon?
PS Or am I the only one seeing this stare? It took longer for me to (fail to) find an image of this then it did to write the whole post! (Edit: Found! with the help of Nels)
