When I was a kid I purchased the Playstation 1 with Final Fantasy 7 and there was a part where you had a snake in a swamp and you had to get a chocobo to cross the swamp.

I didn't understand you had to get a Chocobo so instead I trained for several months to beat the snake in the swamp. Everything after this was extremely easy because I was way to high level :$

Several months!?

Hahahahahaha... Omg. This is runner up. Really gave me a laugh.

I used to always play all race car games going the wrong direction.

heh, I never used a Chocobo either, but instead of grinding like crazy for months (how did you not get bored of that? ) I just kept trying to outrun the snake. I did it eventually, just gotta choose the right angle and timing, stupid snake!



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

When I was a little kid, I played Pokémon Gold. I arrived to the Elite Four with a level 50 Kadabra. Nothing but that. I don't remember what happened to my starter. Anyway... The thing is that I got my ass kicked over and over. But instead of capturing more Pokémon and train them... I kept trying to beat the thing with just my Kadabra. I reached a point where my Kadabra was like level 80... but no matter what I did, Lance and his Dragonites kept killing my poor Pokémon. One day I read somewhere that Kadabra could evolve if you traded it with a friend. I did that. And that day, I beat the Elite Four with just a level 84 Alakazam and a bunch of trash Pokémon. Just as I planned xD



I played mystical ninja goemon without memory card from start every day for some years propably. god I love this game best theme ever https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvfFIfbEHHI

I found it really a challange, everyday I would just go kill monsters for 1-2 hours, give it a try, fail and close the game and play something else, then one day the snake died and I was like, YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH and I couldn't wait for the next hard boss, but that never happened xD

I guess I made it into a dark souls experience

When I first truly got into Shmups I focused looking at where enemy ships are rather than the bullets they shoot. It's nice to know both but I mainly focus on bullets esp when my weapon is powered up.

 

When I first played Phantasy Star I didn't understand why everything killed me. I had not grasped grinding yet in RPGs.

 

Fighting games I used to mash all the buttons mindlessly and wonder why I kept losing at Street Fighter II and Mortal Kombat 1-3.



Final fantasy 8..... "what the fuck, i cannot out grind the enemies"



 

Me and my cousin used to see who could outrun the cops the longest in GTA (original). It was the best way to share the game when family was visiting, as it never took long between turns and it kept everyone engaged.

Years later we were talking about the game and all the missions at a family function. Another cousin, who had owned the game himself, piped up with “what missions?”

He had watched us playing and thought that was the whole game.



Not using my while-rising punishers in Tekken.. Leaving so much damage on the table!
