What are possible meanings for dreams of games?
When considering what a game in a dream means, begin with how it can be used to make comparisons. Playing a game can compare to “the game of life.” It shows your progress or lack of it in advancing your life and personal development. Games are comparable to the rivalry you may have with a friend or sibling. To maneuvering at work to get ahead. To the games you play to attract romantic and sexual partners. To “head games.”
Games are associated with outwitting someone and “gaming the system.”
They’re associated with rules.
They’re associated with taking something seriously—life is not a game! But for some people it is.
Games can compare to something you’re trying to accomplish, an objective, goal, or ambition. Games have objectives, and life can be full of them.
Games can be competitive. Consider ways you compete with people and with yourself—or against yourself. The same skill and ability used in games can be used in life. Can you connect the game in your dream with your life or personality?

The end of the world was to be announced and my family sat with me enthusiastic to go to Heaven, I was petrified that I'd be tortured in Heaven after we died.
The sky had a blanket of clouds but the daytime light caused it still to be bright outside. Magma spewed randomly out of buildings and burned people alive. I got burned alive a few times but continued to re-appear in the dream.
Eventually my parents stopped by and nonchalantly pulled me out of the scene.
My parents (and not my siblings) as well as some extended family got together to first watch a football game and then wait for the end of the world announcement. Once the end of the world came we knew we would all have our lives ended. I was terrified, my family was excited.
In the dream, I believed that if I were to go to Heaven after death I'd be severely tortured for a long time period for everything bad I've done in life. I was in a constant cold sweat throughout the dream. Hell was in Heaven in my mind, and the existence of Hell never even crossed my thoughts in the dream.
All said, I'm happy it was only a dream. Now I'm just curious as to what it means.

What does my dream mean?
I had a very vivid dream last night about a friend I haven’t spoken to in months. In the dream we were hanging out, walking around and holding hands. I thought it was weird as I’m not particularly close to this person and wanted to know if it meant anything. In the past few months I’ve had one other dream about this person where we played video games together.

Strange dream last night - chased by a giant hostile Dark Souls boss kind of worm thing. What does it mean?
This dream was in what I like to call “video game perspective” - where I am watching something happen but also controlling a specific “character” in the dream. Sometimes it can feel like this even in first person perspective, where I am somehow disconnected from being the person, even if I am the person, not watching a screen or using a controller.
So in the dream there was this giant worm creature. It wasn’t really a worm, more wormlike, as in it was oblong and had no limbs and wasn’t reptilian enough to be a snake. First it chased me through a corridor (this was in the perspective of a 2d sidescroller video game) trying to I think eat me or at least somehow kill me and I ran from it and it would smash stuff behind me. Sometimes I was really close to being caught by it but I managed to get ahead. Then I got into a chamber place (it was more in first person now) and it was at the bottom of some stairs. When I would go down the stairs there were smaller worm things that would attack me. I felt like I was struggling with fighting the worms and I thought I was not strong or skilled enough to fight the big worm.
When I am awake and I think about the worm it reminds me most of a Dark Souls boss since it was very strong and big and it was sort of eldritch horror-like. Through the whole dream I was scared of the worm and I felt like I was not strong enough to fight it but I was progressing forward anyways. I also was fighting it in some sort of ruin, like ruined stonework everywhere and stuff. The closest I can describe the ruin as is maybe the Arbiter’s Grounds dungeon from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, but not as dark.

Dream about visiting to another planet, relating my own height and insecurities
I'm 22 years old male, one thing that those last days bother me off is my own height. I am only like 1.65 in meters height, and I feel very insecure about it. My insecurity steems from the fact that it affects my self-image. Somehow, I just realised how I was compensating too hard for my own insecurities about myself and generaly how it made others view me.
Despite people told me that I am fine and look masculine with my appearance, height still bothers the hell out of me. My insecurity started from watching videos of generaly how shorter people are treated, especialy in the dating side of life.
I myself as a person had a pretty regular life, I have been mostly a Video game and Anime lover most of the time.
This dream happened during middle of the time when my stress and insecurity about my height started to take a serious turn, to the point where it left me a feeling of hopelessness.
The dream started off with me arriving with 3 other people to a planet in a different star system (not our sun) in a ship, the planet was similar to earth, it had blue skies, oceans and cities just like on earth.
We started off in some big mall trading centre, I dont remember much of the dream, but 2 of our crew guys (Which seemed to be guys), went on outside by going up the mall to look at the star, instantly this moment when those guys looked at the star shinning, they started to experience something pretty terrible, It in this point I realised in fear, that the Star that shines on this planet is an evil entity of sort that either corrupts you or does something terrible for you if you glance into it.
I got mental images of the star, the star seemed to be a blue giant, unlike our sun, and when I pictured the 2 crew members looking at it, the star would turn entirely black (Like black sphere in the sky) and basicaly corrupts their mind and it does something to them that I cant explain, eitherway, they die somehow.
I started to experience uneasiness with the presence of this star, I feared looking into it even though I felt wanting to look at it, but tried my best not to.
What only remains is me and a woman, we both decided to return back to our spaceship and avoid looking at the star. Still, when I was outside going for the ship I felt fear and uneasiness by feeling the heat coming out of the star, but I moved in and tried not to look at it, and went into the ship with the woman. The dream ended here.
TL;DR: Landing on a planet on a trading centre, the star is a sentient evil diety god, do not glance into it, 2 crew members died, me and a woman escaping back into the ship, the dream ends here.
I'm 22 years old male, one thing that those last days bother me off is my own height. I am only like 1.65 in meters height, and I feel very insecure about it....
