Embarrassing/Shameful Video Game Stories

Post by BretBaber on Thu Oct 17, 2013 12:42 am

This could mean a lot of different things, so I'm hoping to see a wide array of shameful stories. Play a shitty game and love it but never really felt the need to tell anyone? Name your kid after Solid Snake? Rage quit in a game? This is your place to tell all and let your feelings out and maybe just maybe fine some peace with yourself. I'll even be a nice guy and get the ball rolling...

My main and only email I use is foxhoundb2@hotmail.com. Why is that embarrassing? My email that I use for everything is from a fucking video game. Every time I have to fill out my email and I tell someone it is foxhoundb2@hotmail.com I feel a little shame. I liked that game so much back in 1998 that I bypassed all possibilities and made it Special Forces Unit foxhoundb2@hotmail.com. What a lame ass kid. 15 years later it is still the same email. In case you were wondering what the b2 is about it is my name Bret Baber, the first and last name starting with a b so that's why it is b2.

That's one of many shameful stories I have to tell. Hopefully you'll share some too.

I had Pokemon Y downloaded on Friday at 10:15. At midnight on Saturday, I had over fifteen hours logged in.

That's a lot of game time you put in there. Shameful yet something to be proud of at the same time.

I swear, I've only done that with Pokemon and Mass Effect. It's just, I was enjoying it so much and once I had a Quilladin, I had to evolve it before I stopped. Look at it and you'll understand.

It sure is happy looking. I think my worst might be like 5 hours of Ni No Kuni in a day. I loved that game, but it doesn't touch the work you put in.

I think it helps that I had it on a portable. I was playing that while eating and in the bathroom....not sure if that makes it better or worse.

I lied that I had beaten Final Fantasy VII for like 2 years, because I was stupid and didn't beat it. Then I actually beat it later of course but yeah...I lied for a long time about it. >_>

Hmmm shameful AND video game related...I have in my lifetime written fanfiction. Horrible, horrible fanfiction.

You know that room where you meet the girl in Ico? I was stuck in that room for HOURS before I learned that those pillar-looking things were doors.

I once used an example from Half-Life 2 in an essay. Why? I like Half-Life 2 and I hate essays, so why not?

My PSN ID comes from an H-Game (read porn game) called Shuffle. It's also got an anime. Which is just fanservice and more tame but still. It's harem so. I kind of really want to change it.

Unfortunately it didn't remain as one of the files that survived my numerous computer upgrades. I'll poke around and see if some shred exists though. Wouldn't want to disappoint my fans

Right, I can give you the plot synopsis (what I remember anyway, which is not a lot). I think I did one for Final Fantasy VIII where after the plot of the main game, everyone became very estranged because they'd been living their whole lives, essentially bred for the purpose of warfare against a single entity which was now destroyed, and so they were all depressed and shit. And so some of the main characters became all self-destructive. I think I was amassing some other threat that they were gonna get the gang together again since they were super strong from the last game but they'd all turned into shitheads.

I mean, this was about the time where I was imagining heightening conflict in Digimon by killing off a main character, and thus having all the other main characters turn on each other, blaming each other for allowing it to happen.

Long story short, I was a messed up kid.

There were others too. Think I did one for MGS as well before they actually made sequels. Can't say mine were worse than what Kojima shit out.

My first time playing Final Fantasy VI, my first Final Fantasy game, I was 16 and I played it from 4 PM until 7 AM. I then wandered around outdoors in a daze hallucinating graphics and sound from the game. My mother yelled at me a lot that day about sitting up all night playing the game, as I recall.

I have a similar story about my first Final Fantasy game. I was wandering around Midgar, not really sure where I was supposed to be going. RPGs were new to me, so I was definitely a newbie. After hours of wandering and probably complaining out loud my mom yelled for me to stop. I asked "Why?" She said "Because your eyes are all dilated." I was enthralled.

I had an epic shit-fit with Street Fighter II once. As a teen playing the SNES port, I had trouble getting past Sagat; navigating through his high-and-low fireballs and tiger uppercut were bad enough - he laughs at you at the end of a round that he wins.



In my bedroom, the tv and SNES were on a desk located to the closet, which had top sliding doors. After one-too-many losses, I got so mad that I repeatedly punched and kicked one of the doors until it fell off its track/hinge and landed inside the closet. The racket was so loud that my mom heard it and my bitching. She made me re-attach the door and then she made me give the game to her. I couldn't play the game for 2 weeks.

Damn dude, sounds like you internalized the street fighter, and actually became a street fighter. I mean, knocking a door off the frame is pretty hardcore.

Probably the right response by your mom though...

Yikes! Sagat is a mother fucker with all of that "Tiger uppercut bullshit!" I'm sure I have rage stories from that game, sadly I can't remember any.

I have a tantrum one. I think I may have posted about it in 1up but I'll share again on here.

I believe the game was FIFA '98. To better my playing (for what reason I have no idea, there was no online and I rarely played anyone but the computer) I wanted to beat every international team on the hardest difficulty with my favorite international team, Italy. Things were going smooth, teams were falling left and right. I'd hit an occasional snag and lose but the next game I'd win. Then I hit the Berlin wall, fucking Germany. I lost to them so many times at one time I screamed "FUCKING NAZIS!!!" That isn't the worst one though. For some reason the country of Nigeria (which isn't even a soccer power) proved impossible for me to beat. Over and over again I tried to topple them but with no such luck. You know when you get mad and you want to snap your controller in half but know that that isn't the wisest of moves because it brings you so much joy? Well I was having that moment, so I needed something else to break. I looked down and saw an incredibly lame shirt that my mom got me because I liked soccer. One of those corny shirts that said something like "Give me the ball". I looked down, hated it and my current situation, chomped down on the collar, and then I grabbed a handful of shirt in the chest region and immediately began pulling down. What was left was a pale bare chested boy with a fistful of shirt in his hands and a portion of collar left hanging in his mouth. Nigeria beat me that day, but I fucking annihilated that shirt.

I can't lie Bret, the Nazi thing made me laugh pretty hard. I've broken plenty of controllers but I don't really have any memorable stories.

The fact that Final Fantasy XIII got two sequels is disgusting.

Glad you liked that ajapam, I thought I'd get more reaction biting my shirt and Hulking it though. The playstation controller's design is perfect for snapping in half, because you can really torque it. I've never done it, but I think it could easily be managed.
