    What's the stupidest thing you've done or the worst thing that's happened to you recently in a video game?

    My example:

    I started up GTA: SA again, thanks to the recent thread. I've been trying to get the paramedic missions done before I really dig into the story. Last night I finally managed it but not before doing one of the stupidest things I've ever done in my history with video games.

    I got to level 12 and was 3 patients in. I checked the map to plan my next route. I then proceeded hit cancel out of the map one too many times. 'Paramedic mission cancelled.' It was my own damn fault but whoever made those two commands the same button needs to die.

    I was playing MGS4 trying to get the BBE, and I got all the way up to Screaming Mantis before I noticed that I had killed somebody on the Drebin vehicle mission about 6 hours before.

    So I have to go back and do all that over again if I want the BBE. It's been almost 2 months and I still haven't brought myself to redo it. :o

    last time i genuinely rage'd was probably stuck in the palace in killzone2 on hard mode (or whatever was the hardest when you first start a new game)

    Getting to the final obstacle on Inferno II on Trials HD, with a minute left. Frantically trying to get passed it and failing. I blew up! My GF made me turn it off.

    Way back in the SNES days I made a major booboo once in Final Fantasy VI where I flew the airship to a small area next to Nikeah. I went into the town, and when I tried to leave, the exit point from the town put me on the opposite side of where I landed my airship. The unfortunate part is Nikeah itself blocked the patch of land my airship was on, so I could never leave.

    Last controller I broke was from Devil May Cry.

    Hell mode, Nightmare boss.

    Finally got past it, but srsly, fuck that guy.

    Capcom Vs SF2: Final Boss. Kicking the shit out of him with Ryu, Ken, and Akuma. Got him down to the 3rd iteration. Team Super for the kill. Right before it saves, Xbox freezes.

    Haven't been able to beat it since.

    Dragonball Z Budokai, I really did break a controller. I got so pissed off fighting in that tournament arena when I would beat down the other person to an inch of health and then he would just get me up against a wall and do a knockback move to hit me out of the ring. This happened at least 20 times. I slammed the controller down and the rumble didnt work right anymore :rofl:

    Then with Zelda TP, I essentially played through the game 3 times cause I deleted my save accidentally over halfway through twice. I never want to play that game again...

    No the most frustrating thing for me is when you had to beat the clones at the end in God mode. That was the hardest thing Ive ever completed in a video game. And then Ares wasnt much easier. jesus christ :ugh:

    when i was in 7th grade i "beat" ghosts and goblins on the nes. For that 2 year feat i was treated to a 5 second "ending" and then told it was only a dream and i had to do it all over again. I whipped the shit out of my NES with my controller
