    all games, in general.

    It has happened recently with MW1 on Veteran though.

    It's always good to come back and try something in a different light, I hate it when I keep dying at one point, then find out I was supposed to go North instead of South or something. And that area is for later in the game. :mad:

    This is Ninja Gaiden Sigma for me

    I'll progress and make progress for a bit, then hit a boss that just rapes me first try but the check point before the boss is like still a ways out. So I'll quit for like 3 months. Then come back and progress some more. Still haven't beat the game :o

    Happens all the time. I'll keep trying and failing at something, then come back to it later and beat it no problem. :hs:

    Sounds like my first round with FFT back in the day. Of course I didn't know you could FUCKING ADD MORE CHARACTERS.

    .

    Happened to me on the last level of MW1 on the highest difficulty level. I played and played and played and litterally almost threw my controller through the fucking tv.

    Put it down for a few days before it drove me to destroying the immediate 5 mile vicinity around me.

    Picked it up, bam, fingers in the pussy. Almost pissed me off it was so easy.

    Oh well. So life goes.

    Did that in Twisted Metal Black. Couldn't beat the AI when I got it, then played next day and I was able to beat all of them.

    :werd: when I get frustrated I start to rush and start failing on the small things rather than the part that's actually holding me back

    sometimes I just look at a walkthrough on my first attempt :o I'm not clever enough to solve most puzzles without help. :o

    This happens to me in NCAA/Madden. I'll get in a rut with certain play types. Then I'll quit playing for a few weeks, warm up and then crush opponents.

    I guess you're brain is still working shit out even if you're not playing it.

    Never works for me though, its 10 hours straight or I get no-where.
