You know you play factorio too much when you say just five more minutes, and when you finally stop, you're in a nuclear winter, where WW3 actually happened, and everybody else in the world is dead.

ATM when I dream about playing a video game there's about a 50% chance that there'll be some Factorio like element inside of it (usually the belts).

Why won't he move when I press WASD? Oh, I remember now, I'm not playing Factorio, just watching a bad movie.

Sometimes when I'm getting food out of the fridge and putting it in the microwave my first thought is to use an inserter

When Steam gives you overflow errors when trying to display "Time Played".

Of course, that's assuming there is such a thing as playing too much Factorio. Which there isn't.

When you get lost in the forest and you reach for your cluster grenades :)

[seriously, when I am doing combat and I get stuck with 50 behemoths running after me I sometimes just throw a cluster grenade on myself to get rid of whatever I was stuck against...)

I like that one! :)
Been binge watching Aquasitions Incorporated "The C Team" recently.
A fun spin off of the original D&D game.
Also, the fanbase is quite active, which means lots of fanfiction!

When you think about making a program to automatically reply with a smart comment to necros, but decide not to because that is time that could be better spent playing Factorio.

When you, instead of using cool drones to transport your stuff around, stick to conveyer belts for the physical appearance.

When you ask your friends to buy factorio so you can play multiplayer with them

... when you look at some cosmetic product and find ways to imagine making all the ingredients using Angel's Petrochem...
(those chemical ingredients are not actually that complex when you read them on the packaging... it is just short word descriptions stuck together to make a larger incredient) :)
