I only do it whenever people do it to me but on Fat Princess I would respawn as the enemy and continuously spam the megabomb at their castle.

My friend used to troll the hell out of me in WCW/NWO revenge by constantly putting me in the same submission move. He's such weak sauce at playing them.

That reminds me of when I used to play the old Pro Wrestling game on the NES with a buddy or two in the 90's at our one friends house. I'd always use Fighter Hayabusa and just keep brain kicking my one friend since I didn't know any of the other moves.:-# I would position Hayabusa in the right spot near my friends' character so that as soon as he'd get up I'd brain kick him again.:lol:

Paying full price for games at launch and then never getting around to playing them.

Rage quitting in Fortune Street online because I had other things to do.

Not playing through lots of RPGs recently because they were too hard.

Sold my copy of Marvel vs Capcom 2 for Dreamcast for about $12 at Gamestop. I got excited because I thought that was a lot. Looked online a year later because I was curious and my immediate reaction was "Motherfuck!"

:cry:That was a major sin of mine a couple of years ago when I had about a grand in GS credit from flipping. I pre-ordered and bought games like Just Cause 2 on release day and I never finished them yet. About the only title from that time that I think I finished was Red Dead Redemption, but that was a game I just couldn't put down once I started playing.

Whenever possible I mute BG music. This is a habit that originated with DOOM (I think?) and was reinforced by Tie Fighter, Quake, and other annoying mid-90s MIDI shenanigans.

Ever since then I don't even bother sampling, I just find Options > Sound and turn the Music slider way the hell down. I have been told this is a sin from soundtrack enthusiasts.

So it beats the shit out of me what Trent Reznor did for Quake, or what some theme in Azeroth sounds like, or whatever generic strings did for the mood in some shitty game. I'd have muted the goddamn cake song if Valve would've let me. Don't push your bullshit music on me.

I do this a lot, too. I have to really like the music of a game not to replace it with English folk-rock. Metroid Prime? You get to keep your music. Tribes Ascend (which youd should totally all come play with me, 'cause it's free) gets to keep its music 'cause the bit that comes when you grab the flag is great.

The worst are the games that play music during cutscenes even when you have music turned off. Damn you, Mass Effect.
