  1. I’m really curious as to the crying girl. I have absolutely no idea as to what she was playing. Can anyone place the audio?

  2. I saw this a couple of days go and it really freaked me out.

    I read that it’s not uncommon for people when immersed to stop blinking and the eye responds by tearing up.

    She just didn’t wipe it, and possibly didn’t even know it was happening.

    Watch the video and count how many times people blink…and then realize we play to.

  3. @jeffool – I’m with Nat, I’m thinking her eyes teared up because of the fact she was so focused on the game, which is of course the whole point of the video.
