Weird Gaming Habits?

  • @jipostus Yes! I had to murder a number of NPCs just for the storage crates and barrels their homes provided.

  • Whenever there's a customizable character in fighting games, I always choose the tiniest bikinis for the female characters and... oh. This is a little embarrassing.

  • When I play Uncharted or Tomb Raider, I never make Nate/Lara climb or shimmy faster, and I only jump during climbing if they can't reach the handhold without it. I actually really enjoy the long climbing sections of Uncharted 4.

  • I have one:

    Every RPG I play, I MUST have my stats at either an even number or devisable by 5. Never in a game like Dark Souls will I allow a stat such as 7 or 23, unless its a starting stat.

    I'm not sure I it counts, but ill also NEVER use a first aid spray in a Resident Evil prior to RE4. I'll reset the whole game with no saves if needs be.

  • I don't even know where I picked this up, but whenever I'm waiting on a slow animation in a game - like a big door that's opening - I always act like an impatient spaz: I'll run around in tight circles, mash the jump button, or spam some emote or other thing that causes noise

    I'm not an impatient guy in real life, and I typically try to RP whenever I can to get immersed in the world, but something about waiting on animations just drives me nuts

  • Whenever I create a save game in The Witcher 3 I always try and put Geralt in a cool pose or create a neat little 'scene' to go in the little image that accompanies the save file. I used to do the same in Dragon Age Origins back in the day.

  • *i start with the not best games, then work my way around to the best ones... Anyone else?

    It's just like how 'new york ppl' eat pizza lol

  • @SabotageTheTruth If you somehow haven't been rewarded for flushing toilets or turning on faucets, you haven't been playing enough horror games. Most of my favorite games in the genre have some kind of plumbing-based puzzle-solving.

  • @alexwhiteplays Bathtubs, sure.. but I can't think of any toilet rewards.

  • @SabotageTheTruth Let me introduce you to a fun little point-and-click adventure title with strong psychological horror elements and some of the most beautiful, brutal, and honest storytelling about mental health to ever appear in video games. It's called The Cat Lady.

    I forgot to mention my own gaming habit, though based on a previous thread from several months ago, it might not be that uncommon. I often find that I find a particular food or drink that I start to associate with a particular game, and so whenever I play that game I feel slightly wrong if I don't have that food/beverage (though the opposite isn't true, I can have the food without playing the game just fine). Sometimes, it's because that food appears in the game universe, but sometimes they seem fairly random. So for Persona 4, it was spicy Asian food, usually pineapple fried rice, and that was partially because it reminded me of the Chinese Diner Aiya. But for Persona 5, it seems to be... tequila. No clue why, it just is. Final Fantasy 10 was spaghetti with olive oil, garlic, black olives, and onion. Final Fantasy Tactics Advance is chocolate chip cookies, and Fallout: New Vegas is beans and rice. I've just learned to stop questioning it and just enjoying it.
