It's OK to make mistakes, even ones that cost you multiplayer deathmatches. The following 25 blunders represent the most boneheaded and clueless errors in video games, from voiding a warranty to taking cover behind an explosive barrel.
I think I have 10 game files for oblivion and 7 for fallout
my #1 would be reloading to often. ill shoot 5 bullets at a person and he'll die and ill immediately reload to jus come across someone wit a fresh clip
I'm also guilty of #7. I have over 100 FarCry 2 saves... and they're all of one playthrough too. Well, I guess I can blame that on QuickSave making a new game file every single time you use it...
LOL.... Priceless. "Excellent marketing, intriguing cover art, doctored screens and Internet hype can turn any potential toilet flusher into today's". "hit." So true. and N4 g is lame... Won't even let me type in "today's" "hit" without a character between s and hit. I mean seriously "space" or any character in between s and hit does not spell Sh!t get it right N4G.
I wonder how many people bought Guitar Hero without the guitar.
I bought it without one because I already had an RB2 guitar. I'm exempt!
sigh why not just list them into one or two pages.. i hate when i accidentally click that site.. each page has about 2 or 3 sentences for a total of 27 pages? GTFOH
I know, right?! Wtf is that all about? Grrr
Free hits. Online games "journalism" is a business like any other. Hits = ad revenue.
I never do the 2nd one but I always do the 1st one......
lol great list
are u kidding? that list was a waste of time it doesn't take more then 2-3 pages to write up a list like that. did anyone else notice the excess of xbox360 snapshots used other then me?
It had some fun stuff, don't take it too seriously. I like the fact that "20. Running their mouth" had nice big picture of Geow above it, soooo accurate. I thought "14. Choosing the hardest difficulty first" was stupid though, I almost always choose the hardest available setting because I like a challenge and don't mind dying a lot. I've only regretted it a few times.
"14. Choosing the hardest difficulty first" I do this because I find most games to be easy. It works out most of the time. HUGE mistake the first time I popped in DMC and Ninja Gaiden.
Especially if you care about achievements/trophies. Half of the games have rewards for beating the game on normal and hard. And then there are the games that have a super-hard difficulty that only unlocks if you beat it on hard.
Chris buffa - Halo fanboy much?
God Damn Alyssa Milano is F'n gorgeous. Bland Playboy-style blondes have nothing on Alyssa Milano. She's so beautiful I would let her fart in my face whenever she wants.
Whoever disagreed with my above-mentioned comment is a F*cking [email protected]@ot!...Not that theres anything wrong with that!!!
she is hot but ur next line was a little disturbing...lol!!!i agreed with u by the way!!
fart in the face nice one didnt see that one coming
My brother though keeps overwriting all my save files with his. My first run through with Ninja Gaiden Sigma and Metal Gear solid 4 I was already nearing the end of both games but he saved on my file.
wow, i would've kicked the crap outta my brother if he did that, especially if it was ngs and mgs4
He's the athletic type a black belt in Taekwondo, knows a little Judo, and a gamer who does not game much however he is a naturally gifted gamer having played both Ninja Gaiden Sigma and Ninja Gaiden 2 on the hardest difficulties and finishing both I've also done that but with his casual attitude with games you'd expect him to play on normal or easy first. The funny thing is he has a habit of buying very hard games and finishing them with relative ease and he does not follow game news so he technically has no clue what he is buying if the concept looks good he'll buy it.
lol if he is younger than you.
if it were my younger brother then it would be a different story but he usually plays on the 360 so my save files are safe from him.
I disagree with #1 the body is a bigger target than the head.... it doesn't mean it's a mistake...
Guilty of that. Everytime I see an easy target, I shoot at him/her but they end up turning around and kill me instead.
ive been there, LOL its not as bad as it sounds, most enemies dont even shot at them due to bad AI
lol i remember when i was taking cover at killzone 2, i saw enemies shooting at me (or at least i though they were pointting at me) then i suddently heard an explosion and well. didnt died.... then saw barrels behind me in a quite clsoe distance, the explosin wasnt enough to kill me but OH, damm those IAs lol they crack me up sometimes when palying the game.
In Halo 3 I always shoot out the fusion coils before I move near them, the odd time here or there though when I am sniping out the other team the fusion coils respawn beside me and an enemy sometimes takes me out, lol.
Respawn fusion coils SUCK!
Failing to keep an eye on batteries Driving a burning vehicle Falling off cliffs Mismanaging units and co-op partners Wandering near explosive barrels Bringing the wrong weapon for the job Firing a rocket too close for comfort Accidentally killing teammates Failing to reload weapons Yeah, it's pretty common to make these mistakes at times.
No one can resist the temptation of running a flaming car in to the enemy team on say, GTA4. It's just impossible.
Choosing the hardest difficulty first is not a mistake. It makes the game more fun and last longer. I only pick the hardest first so that I dont feel like I wasted my money.
What a nifty list, unfortunately, I've done soo many of them. <3 I have my blonde moments, on occasion. Haha
Im like who didnt destroy this busted vehicle. I jump in and drive it lol. snipeing in same spot owns. Im like F it. I know some guy is gonna kill me if I stay here but the kills are to good lol.
My PS3 was getting dusty. So I opened her up, cleaned 'er out, and put some fresh thermal paste in there for good measure.
Wow GameDaily really love the Halo franchise... They couldn't use pics from other games?
Oh how I remember the days of forgetting to reload. Flaming vehicles are hard to resist sure cuz you figure you can get one last kill before you jump out. BUT jihad jeeps were better, strap a buggy full of c4 drive into a tank, jump out, and blow up yourself and the tank.
Waste of my life. EPIC FAIL ARTICLE......EPIC.
1) i will always drive a car thats on fire into a foe (thats if 1 is close by), but usually get off when i think it about to o KA BOOM.. 2)i stay silent on live but its sometimes funny to here other people talk, especially those that are singing and are bad at it.. 3)i usually watch where im walking or jumping but sometimes dont pay attention as well.. 4)barely to no one pays attention to tutorials or read the game book, me i jus start pressing buttons and ill figure what does what.. 5)i mostly bring the less effective weapon to a fight a few time but i still pass it even if i die too much i will keep on trying jus for the challenge 6)i usually only have 1 or 2 save files of the same game (but gta4 i had about 10 and got confused what was what so i deleted them all and started over again..dont care tho).. 7)haha i remember killing team mates in halo even tho it was not intentional, jus got confused which team i was on at the start of the match... FRAG OUT... 7)i switch between shooting in the body to head tho i mostly shoot at body cuz its a bigger target i guess
I allways manage to empty an entire clip THEN decide it's the best time to run at the enemy, so I would, sometimes it would scare them and they'd freeze but most of the time it'd be me left cold. stone cold. I hate having to click what must have been 26 times in order to see content which could fill one or two pages.
reloading way too often,even if I've only fired a few shots. It's cost me a few lives as well by accidentally doing it after killing one person and another runs round the corner.
They're going into my mental rolodex of sources of articles not to click on anymore. How annoying to space it out like that.
