brilliant chaos
In the game Aztec I needed a ladder to pass a certain point... I searched for hours and hours and hours and evetually gave up. I'd travelled the whole gameworld to find it but no luck. Half a year later I replayed it....the ladder stood against a house 5 meters from the point I needed it for.

I spent four hours trying to align my jumps on a stupid Tomb Raider level, trying to grab ledges and ropes.


Recently though, it's been jumping off the Empire State Building for lulz in GTA IV.
I also spent almost half an hour in Zack and Wiki trying to figure out a puzzle when the answer was right in front of me. -.-

I forgot what they was called but I thought you had too jump on them too get them too go down.

Well it turns out jumping up and down on them isn't how works.. I died like 2 with time running out.. Then when I came back later I got it too work.


I did a lot stupid in MMOs but everyone has, lol.

Why do you want that?
lol the spinning platforms in Carnival zone, get the bubble shield and with good jump & bounce timing the platforms will be your best friends.


My dumbass moments:
Playing FF12 for 3 hours and then forgetting to save ;_;
Doing desert time trails in Jak 3, not by using the car, rather using infinite Light Jak time slowing. 1 mission takes 20 minutes to finish lol

wiill add more later...

I was leveling up in FFVII, and I gained 10 levels, then started playing again. When mom said I got a package, I opened it up, and it was Bleach the complete first season. I pulled the plug to the ps2, and plugged in my dvd player to watch it immediately, and the next day i realized what i did.

In World of Warcraft an Epic Bind on Equip helm dropped it was worth ~1000g I accidentally equipped it because in that same run a lesser value blue helm dropped that looked exactly the same. Needless to say I lost ~1000g because the Epic Leather was for Druids. :(

P.S. I'm not a Druid.

Did almost the same things on Mario Kart: Super Circuit, only with NPC players on 150cc.

I think I fired off more than 100 red shells that day.

While not technically in a video game, it is relevant.

I always forget to back up save files on my computer before I reformat it. Hours of work in RPGs, gone. It's quite frustrating.

On RE4

I was fighting the blind guy witthe claws & when he did that charge attack I stood there & got impaled.

On Syphon Filter 1

I saw a grenade on the gorund & said "whats dat?" rolled close to it then BOOM.

My cousin and I were on the last level of Halo 3 coop, and right after the jump, he climbs out of the vehicle. I laughed at him for it for weeks.

1st Dumbest thing: Buying Sonic and the Secret Rings. That was just painful. Truely.

2nd Dumbest thing: Forgetting to save after a particularly difficult part of a game or playing for hours on end and not saving before powering off.

well, this wasnt really a video game...

i was playing the sims 2, and my family was perfect. (big house, healthy family, lotsa $) well, one day i forgot to save, and i left it on for 6 hours. Not only did it almost kill my computer, but my whole family died from a fire that burned down my house.
i was hella mad >_<
