Sinners Wanted - Video Game Confessional
PM me the worst things you've ever done as a gamer. Whether it was something you did to yourself or to someone else, it doesn't matter. I'll compile all or the best stuff (depending on participation) to share (I can omit your name if you prefer to remain anonymous) with the whole community.
If you're here, it's for two reasons. 1 - You love video games. 2 - You've done a bad, bad thing as a result of that love, and I'm willing to bet a lot of it was hilarious and some of it you haven't even shared with anyone else...until now!
I want to know it all, g1s. Did you pee your pants because you had to finish the boss before going to the bathroom? Did you steal a game you love from a friend or store? Gotten in a fist fight with a friend because he sucked/was better than you? Destroyed a game, controller, console out of anger? Ever murder someone?
It can be big, small, crazy, silly, hilarious, awful, disgusting, etc. I don't care. If you have a story, I want to hear it. Let me be your psychologist or some kind of video game pope, absolving you of your gaming sins. Enter my confessional and let the truth set you free!
So, send me a PM here or on Twitter or just e-mail me (atsinganoi(at)gmail(dot)com). If you'd prefer to remain anonymous, that is totally fine. Just remember to mention it in your message. I'm giving you folks two weeks to get back to me. Spread the word!
I sent a PM a while back. I'd rather not talk about it here. -_-'
You might lol, you might not. Either way, I did very bad things.
Ohhhhhhh geez. If I had to list everything I've done I'd be here all day. Unplugging controllers, giving false info, giving someone a worse controller, making someone else grind for me, etc.
The worst that I can recently think is that I tried to put parental controls on a console so that people around the house could stop using Netflix and instead play games. .....it didn't work but at least I tried!
My little sister used to play Playstation so much that I bearly got my turn to play it, so I took all of our games and put them in a locked box to which I only knew the passcode. Thus, I became the one who dictated who plays.
When me and my brother were given a SNES, we gave our NES away to our cousins. Some time later we visited our cousins and they had also moved to a newer console, so we... we decided to "see what was inside it" with hammers (don't look at me! I'm a monster!). To this day I still wish I had kept that NES
I had discovered how holding down the Z button in Banjo Kazooie made the characters talk really slowly and was having fun with it. Only I was doing it in the opening menu and Z also happened to be the button to delete a save file. And I was doing it on my friend's cartridge. To this day he still gets angry that the cartridge "corrupted and deleted his save file on its own"...
You are one sick individual. I like that :)
I use character creation to make half naked women with large breast who Fight each other to the death for my amusement so i could feel like a king while drinking mountain dew from a whine glass.
but My biggest sin. I played Dead space 1 and 2 while playing Monty Python songs such as "always look on the bright side of life " and "the galaxy song" while the lights are on. It eliminates the fear factor entirely. And theres alot more .
I said it before and I'll say it again, G.G. likes the GG's XD
WHAT?! I'm playing that game for the first time and just finished that section. I never even noticed. It must be because I'M NOT A CREEPY PERV!
Kidding, or course...and thanks for sharing.
I had a saved file on FF7 just before the motorcycle mini-game escaping Midgar so I could always check out Tifas "unique" physics in the cutscene just before. XD I was 13. DON'T JUDGE ME!
Oooh, I hadn't thought of that. I did that with FF VIII. I had totally forgotten.
I faked sick at school just so I can play Dragon Quest VIII all day.
Though I don't know the game, I'm assuming most people think it's bad...? Anyway, liking a bad game isn't quite what I was asking for. I want to know what's the worst thing you've ever done as a gamer.
Nice, but not exactly what I'm looking for.
Ok, now I HAVE to know about this one. Please, please, please PM me your story. I can leave your name out when I post everyone's stories. Also, to date, at least one other person told me of something illegal, so you wouldn't be alone.
I haven't done a lot of 'bad' things, I fell asleep once in a party in FFXI, though I blame the tank that went afk for 30 minutes and the party that wanted to wait for him to come back, I've broken a multitude of NES/SNES/Genesis controllers and a few PC controllers.
With that said though, there was done something really bad for me when it comes to videogames, when the SNES came out, I begged and pleaded with my parents for one, appearantly I was being a real crybaby (I don't actually remember what I did), my father went to the local videogame store, rented an SNES, put our NES into the bag for the SNES, went back to the store and pretty much stalked the store until he saw there was a relatively large amount of people, he then returned the 'snes' and due to the amount of people in the store, the clerk didn't have time to check the bag. A week later the store called and my father said that he's delivered the SNES and he has the reciept to prove it, my father had stored the SNES with one of my uncles as my birthday was right around the corner, they sent a surprise visit to us to look for the SNES, they couldn't find it, so they appologized and gave my parents money as compensation, with that money my father bought a new NES to hide from me the fact that he had 'traded' the nes for the snes, put the nes back in the living room (he had told me that he had lent the nes to my uncle the week or so it was gone), and for my birthday, I recieved the SNES.
I offcourse found out all this much much later, but yeah, that's the worst thing that's been done for me, I think.
Well my best one isn't tecnically....ummm...well....legal...so I will just pass but I love the topic!
i saw under peach's dress in Melee and Brawl ó_ó i'm that badass
I've broken more controllers than i dare to count.
I know plenty of people whom have gotten into physical altercations as a consequence to improper sportsmanship in games, though if anything, the fact I've had the skin of my palms peeled off during a SINGLE-PLAYER round of Mario Party 1 does negatively shine upon my determination in the game. If not enough, one of my webcomics (My Life's a Game) technically has me quit my job, waste money received from my parents death proceeds, acknowledge the fact loss of life for games is of little consequence, miss out on laundry day, and get my physical vessel killed (Though out of my control) because of my decision to play an MMO. Though the fictional aspects of the tale stay in play, I can't help but feel I'm rather cruel on myself in this regard. Sin: Sloth for games. Punishment: Death, fate worse than death, maulings. Worst is yet to come.
