A Video Game With A F-35

I can only barely remember part of the end of my last dream from last night, I played a fictional video game earlier in the dream that had a main male character who looked and dressed like Ryu from the Street Fighter video games, and the first part of the video game was a tutorial.

This part of the video game took place during the day, you had to sneak near a gated sewer area where there was a river of water that you could cross to a parking lot area near a building, and some enemy creatures and humanoids were in this building; and one of the things parked in the parking lot was an aircraft that looked like or was a F-35 multirole combat aircraft.

The tutorial tried to teach you how to play the game as you had to sneak around this area, and at some point some of the creatures and humanoids find you and you have to fight them; and then try to fly the F-35 and use it against them, but that is all that I can remember from the tutorial.

During one part of the dream I probably talked with my mom inside a house, later in the dream I think that a fictional pornographic actress or actress or celebrity and I went to play the video game from earlier in the dream, but we played it on a different console or device so this version of the video game did not have a tutorial to help us learn how to play.

I remembered the beginning of the video game but I still did not know how to play very well and I did not know how to play on this new console or device, I tried to explain what I remembered to the woman playing the video game with me, and it seemed that we were possibly inside the video game as we played or something confusing like that; and I was controlling the Ryu-like character and/or was him, and she was controlling a female character and/or was the female character.

We crossed the sewer with the running water/river, there was a bridge/crossing area, into the parking lot and we sneaked into the building; and the first room inside the building was a narrow small multi-purpose room that even had a toilet and maybe sink and maybe mirror in it like it was a bedroom/bathroom/lobby, and the creatures and humanoids were patrolling the building and outside.

We had waited until their patrols were patrolling inside the building before we sneaked inside, without the tutorial we did not really know how to play so we were trying to figure this out as we played, and instead of a tutorial this version of the video game gave you various objectives to complete as a substitute to having a tutorial it seemed; and so we were trying to complete these various objectives.

At some point the creatures and humanoids found us and I told the woman to run back across the sewer bridge and hide while I distract the creatures and humanoids, the objective was to take the F-35 and try to attach something to the front of it that would allow it to shoot bullets at the creatures and humanoids, and so I drove the F-35 on the ground trying to attach the front of it to a large object while the creatures and humanoids chased and attacked me.

Eventually I got the object to attach and then I flew into the air with the F-35 to start shooting the creatures and humanoids until they were all defeated/dead, then I would pick up the woman, and we would fly to our next objective; but I woke up as I was flying around shooting the creatures and humanoids as they probably shot at me.

All Things Die? : A Five Nights At Freddy’s Inspired Dream

Five Nights at Freddy's (2014)

Dream 1

I barely remember part of two dreams that probably were inspired by the survival horror video game Five Nights At Freddy’s, maybe not the first dream but definitely the second dream, and the first dream involved a survival-like game I think.

My parents’ and I were in the dream trying to survive a scary situation/threat but I can not remember where we were or what the threat was, I just know that the dream was scary, and something bounced off something at some point during the dream; and maybe someone helped us, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

The second dream took place inside a fictional windowless building that had long hallways, and one area in the building had a survival game that you could play that was like the video game Five Nights At Freddy’s except that it was not a video game but a scary funhouse/haunted attraction/haunted house/whatever with large/tall animatronic creatures/humanoid animals that could really chase you.

There was a person who you would pay to play the game who was on a middle hallway that intersected/crossed another hallway so you could either go left or right or stay in the middle, I probably played the game and/or watched a few other people play the game, but I can not remember if you could really get hurt or not; but I do remember that the game was creepy, and the animatronic creatures/humanoid animals were taller than the ones on the video game Five Nights At Freddy’s.

I remember that one of the animatronic creatures/animals looked like Bonnie (a pinkish/purplish colored animatronic rabbit/bunny-like humanoid creäture/animal) from Five Nights At Freddy’s, it was the tallest and maybe creepiest/scariest of the animatronic creatures/animals, and written on either its forehead or chest or shirt or sign or somewhere on it were probably the words/the phrase: “All Things Die” or something like that.

The person running the game was also selling posters of the animatronic creatures/animals and/or also selling the actual animatronics themselves or copies of them, and I considered buying one but the Bonnie-looking one creeped me out/scared me a bit/freaked me out so I did not buy one; and I remember it looking at me with its scary/evil eyes, and I remember feeling that the “All Things Die” words/phrase was a warning/reminder/foreshadowing/whatever.

I forgot to mention that my brother GC was with me in the dream and we walked to another hallway where an older woman with whitish colored skin was selling chocolate chip cookies from a small Great American Cookie Company stand in the hallway, and I started to say something negative about those cookies (maybe about the lack of variety) but before I got to the negative part I was interrupted by the older woman; and she offered me a free chocolate chip cookie to my surprise.

I was glad that I did not get a chance to make my negative comment, I accepted the free cookie and I thanked her, but I woke up.

The end,
