I thought these were cupcakes
I thought this little guy was a gen 3 mon. I didn't see him in gen 2..
Up until a couple weeks ago, I've been saying his name as Phanphy. Its Phanpy of course.
In FF8 I kept getting caught by that stupid tank on the island and I nearly ran out of time
I'm pretty sure they pronounced it that way in the anime cause that's how I pronounced it up until I needed to look him up for something and was confused that I got no results because I was spelling it Phanphy
I didn't know you could jump until more than halfway through the game. I didn't know it was the y button
I didn't know there was a Level 4 Gold sword
I got stuck in the graveyard in Bayonetta just like DSP did I'm still ashamed about it to this day
I kept saying Browser when I was younger. Went I eventually found out, I was so embarrassed.
You can repeatedly drink from water sources by holding the activate button down, instead of tapping it which takes at least twice as long
I thought Blue's mouth was always wide open when I looked at his overworld sprite. I still can't unsee it.
I was stuck on the forest temple block puzzle because the block blended in with a doorway.
I ended up completing all the other temples before coming back and finding the block had missed
In Godhand Gene has a sweep if you press triangle as you are stationary dodging, he also has a dragon uppercut if you press back+triangle while an enemy is in the air
I went through almost my whole first run without knowing about the sweep, god damnit
I didn't know about rotating the golden claw. Because the game didn't punish me for being a tard, I kept clicking it in until it worked
>he also has a dragon uppercut if you press back+triangle while an enemy is in the air
He has an ax kick too I think. I didn't know about it until I was watching the LP and I was like "wait what the hell is THAT move"
I thought Gliscor was Poison/Dark with Levitate as its ability.
There are moments in Metroid Prime where I'm forced to scan, yet the game didn't show the icon for scanning and nothing would get done.
I eventually managed to scan the required shit, but to this day I don't know what I did differently to change that.
You didn't actually hold down R the whole way, did you?
I had this with Snorunt or something, I saw him in Brawl at first and appearntly he's a gen 3 mon despite gen 3 being a tropical paradise that has no ice pokemon in sight.
Only seen him in the gen 4 games.
>This HAS to be b8
>Goes to Serebii
>What in fuck
I didn't know you could upgrade your health in God Hand until after the first Devil Hand fight
Yeah, Fucking xbox. Who would ever use A/B/X/Y?
For the longest time I couldn't beat any temple in OOT because my older brother had gone through the temples, fuck around in it a bit and go to the next one, so I had no idea where to start off.
Made my own file later
I didn't know I could unlock abilities in Farcry 3.
I had like 30 ability points to use in the mission where you jump from the plane with the wingsuit.
But in gen 3 there is an ice elite four member and he has two Glalies, the evolved form of Snorunt. To be fair they look nothing alike so you may have not seen Snorunt himself and never made the connection.
I remember them showing that "rotate the claw to see the combo" gimmick at the E3 presentation. and I say gimmick because that's literally the only sort of creative puzzle in the entire game.
I beated Bloody roar 2 without knowing you could transform mid combo, it was fucking hard.
apparently everyone seems to have forgotten sonic is about speed and not about fucking platforming.
holy fucking shit.
you fucking win, king moron right here.
In Half Life 1, I didn't know I needed to talk to people to progress, so I thought the game glitched. I then tried to use cheats to noclip through the door but I kept pressing the chat key instead of the console key.
I didn't know how to UT in Ninja Gaiden Black until I got to the boss rush on Hard.
I played the absolute entirety of Megaman X until I realized I just couldn't defeat the final boss. I had literally collected EVERYTHING in the game hoping it would help, yet I still couldn't defeat that fucker.
Then I saw online that I could use energy capsules
Tutorials aren't a bad thing, its just when they are overdone or treat you like a retard when its bad.
If they added a section where one guy was like "Hey nigguh u can inspect dat shit in inventory and rotate it around" then when you pause it will show a little arrow or some shit to Y or whatever button it was a little earlier in the game it would at least hint to what to do later
I was just sayin that Snorunt's evolution line is something you absolutely have to encounter to finish the game since it appears twice in the elite four. But since it's evolved form looks so different I can understand not making the connection.
>Y on the X axis
>X on the Y axis
What where they thinking?
And there's literally nothing wrong with that either. /v/ is shit and 99% will circlejerk over the same bait and more people means more unique gay sleepover stories. The only reason to visit /v/
not in sapphire.
Originally in Doom I thought you inputted cheat codes by pressing down all the keys for the code at once
I went through most of the game without realizing that bashing any button added addtional damage to attacks, I thought you had to tilt the analog because the animation button had no symbol on it
>But all the codes have IDD and you can't press two D keys.
Haha wow, I meant all the codes have ID and then there's IDDQD. Not sure why I'm retarded.
Still, if you were cheating in Doom, you must have known IDDQD. You can't press D two times. Or three times, wow I can't count either.
I didn't know you could still 101% the game by getting 75 bananas for each kong on every level anyway compared to 100.
>It's shit so we might as well continue to make it shit!
I swear, you faggots from reddit only come here to shitpost because you can't do it over there with your precious uboats and karma. Fuck, I don't care if you faggots come and try to be a part of the community but at least lurk more you fucking cunts.
This is a pretty recent one, but there's a point in Chaos;Head where the MC makes a comment about "I wish someone would push a reset button on my life", then there's like a minute pause before he says "I guess something like that wouldn't happen". But on my first time through I took the line and lack of any more text to be a prompt to restart the game, so I replayed all the way back to that point thinking something would change.
I played this game 5 times over as in starting a new game and never encountered it.
Well I have by now, but not in a gen 3 game that wasn't emerald randomizer.
And you need to reread mine.
It's the most comfy way to browse though, so I'll endure it. Wii u gamepad is 2nd comfiest
I could never do the water dungeon (first one) in OOT so I had to get my brother to do it for me.
I thought Ash Ketchum was ash ketchup
I didn't realize Pliskin was big boss
I thought Professor Elm's classic sprite had a weird helmet on his head, instead of a receding hairline.
I never got the significance of Tails' real name.
Miles Prower = Miles Per Hour
I dunno how the fuck I saw it like this, but I used to think Red's sprite when battle started was him sitting down.
I thought potions were magic potions that would make my pokemon more powerful, and I repeatedly tried using one on my completely healthy bulbasaur.
I also got upset when I caught my 6th pokemon and it got transferred to "someone's pc". I thought someone hacked my pokemon and went around the houses trying to find the pc which had it.
You can give the troops on your team orders as if they were your men.
>I also got upset when I caught my 6th pokemon and it got transferred to "someone's pc". I thought someone hacked my pokemon and went around the houses trying to find the pc which had it.
looks like I wasn't the only one but I kept spin attacking the giant bug in twilight princess. I'd hit all the limbs but I wouldn't 'beat' it
or like if you were supposed to spin attack then I was doing the B thing.
I thought he was just a fat kid, like Cartman.
Damn, that would be an interesting Team Rocket plan if they attempted to steal your pokemon through the transporting of them from a full party.
nigga cloud is swinging a sword around that juding by it's size should weight about as much as a fucking train and he's swinging it around like it's made out of paper. I have no Idea how cloud can even swing it because I'm pretty sure any momentum would just lift and carry the little faggot trough the air.
Wouldn't be surprised if Cloud could lift Thors hammer
I always thought he had three
In World of Warcraft, I didn't know you had to type /1 to talk in the regional channel. I just said everything in the local chat and thought I was talking so everyone could see. I cringe when I think about the possibility of people close to me seeing me talking to myself answering the zone chat.
Skyrim is just a piece of shit. I once spent an hour combing through a dungeon looking for the claw. Of course it was right next to the door. Silly me thinking exploration would actually be necessary.
I'm not really sure why, but I always thought that the pokemon trainer in gold & silver was supposed to be a detective
It's not Diddy Kong's Quest.
It's Diddy's Kong Quest.
I always called him professor bitch. I honestly had no idea.
>I know plenty of people who memorize the alphabet backwards just to avoid DUIs.
When they do that they're not going to ticket you if you don't finish it correctly, they're just checking to see if you slur your words while you're mentally distracted. If you nail it perfectly because you prepared ahead of time that'd be far more suspicious than being awkward at it like any normal person would be.
>I'm not really sure why, but I always thought that the pokemon trainer in gold & silver was supposed to be a detective
What the fuck dude
I first thought you could only get like up to 2,000 gold out of the money rock.
Then I thought i was a smart fucker by getting up to 4,000
A year later I discover you can get it up to 8,000
Literally today I discover if you have good money luck you can double that
ran away from a shiny tailow in pokemon sapphire
cause i couldnt really see shit on the gba, and i thought it was a bug.
found out that later that week that shiny pokemon exist
tfw that was my first and only shiny encounter :(
Me and my fiance bought two copies of Skyrim, one for the PS3, one for the 360, so we could both play at once
Am I bothering you? Is your life worse due to my actions?
u mad bro
Does he have 2 eyes and face paint stripes or four eyes?
I traversed the entirety of Oblivion on foot before realizing you could fast travel
But I fucking loved making and selling potions so grabbing all dem ingredients on the way almost made it worth it
Same as this guy but in Oblivion
Finished the main quest before i learnt. Now I can't play it using fast travel because it feels wrong.
The Dark Brotherhood becomes way more rewarding if you don't use fast travel
I didn't realize your pipboy could be used as a flashlight until I was 80+ hours in.
I didn't get the Fire arrows until Ganon's castle.I completed 5 out of 6 Ganon castle mini dungeons. I even completed the Dark Temple mini dungeon, the one with the invisible bridges and all that jazz by using Din's fire on the torch, rushing to the other side and equipping the pegasus at the last second in order to make a jump. The worst part is that I actually saw the "puzzle" for the fire arrows before getting the bow but I forgot about doing it
Why the fuck would you feel stupid for not knowing a pokemons TYPE. Jesus christ you autists, you literally have to go into a menu to find that shit. I do find it kind of funny that like half of the posts about being retarded are from pokemon players though.
Real stupidity is the people who played Hotline Miami and didn't know there was a lock on.
>constant loading screen hints about turning your pip boy light off
>first couple of times think it's just some kind of little joke or something
>none of the other hints are jokey
>check the manual, test it out
>turn down brightness
Back in the first temple (with the monkeys and shit) in twilight princess, I got stuck at the part where i was supposed to throw the gale boomerang in a z-formation to get the big key.
i actually restarted the game and stayed stuck in this temple for a week before giving up and going to gamefaqs
god i'm retarded
I was stuck in Minish Cap for the longest while until I realized you had to fly to this one place you never visited before
I got through after like a whole month when I tried to fly by accident
>Not always looking up keybinds
I forgot to do it sometimes between games in a series, hell I didn't know how to CQC in MGS3 for half the game because I thought the grab button should be the same as the last two games and I just thought I was getting the timing or something wrong.
Tailow was the first
and onlyshiny I caught. This was in Emerald version. Later on when I got Pearl version, I cloned the shit out of it and traded it off on the GTC for all kinds of shit.
>Assume I somehow missed a piece of paper or a riddle or some sort of engraving that would give me the hints I need to figure out the puzzle
>Search around for a while
>Go into menu after a while
>Oh look I can rotate items in this game now
>Try it out on the claw
>The answer to the fucking "puzzle" is on it
What a shit game.
I've never encountered a single shiny
I thought pre-searing was the entire game..
>"HOLY SHIT THIS GAME IS HUGE!"
>Play for 2 weeks in pre-searing
>Never went to the arena because I didn't want to do pvp
>Guy at school played also and told me "dude, that's the tutorial, speak to this guy and do the pvp bit"
>Do as he said, suddenly in the actual game
>Open map.. "oh ok, so it's the same just everything is burned"
>Notice the magnifier cursor with a minus sign
>"Oh, I can zoom ou- HOLY FUCKING SHIT WHAT THE HELL!"
Hey, wanna memorize the alphabet backwards? Here's how.
Start off with ZYX. That's easy, everyone can remember that. Now you've got the two worst states in America: WV, UT. Now we've got a weird phrase: "It's our cue to pee on MLK". SRQPONMLK. You're almost done, so dance a little JIHG. Get a burger so you're well FED, and finish it up with easy-to-remember CBA.
ZYX WV UT SRQPONMLK JIHG FED CBA.
Never really learned half the shit you are supposed to know as a kid by heart
To this day I still have to think about which is left and right, and I don't even know the months of the year because I really have no real schedule that depends on it, don't observe holidays and shit like that.
I might be retarded, but I like to at least think that it's just because I didn't learn it by heart as a child.
I kept trying to sneak through these guards for like half an hour until i just got frustrated and killed them. After checking that room i realised that shoul've just kept going upstairs. I felt like a complete idiot
I couldn't figure out how to get into this room
In my defense, I never used incinerate and forgot about it
The original sanic, save for the very first level wasn't acually that fast. SPEED was more a marketing ploy for the genesis
In conflict vietnam i didn't know you can put out the fire of your team mates by making them roll on the ground.
i have to finish every mission while they where on fire, shit was hardcore Yo.
i never remember which months have 30 days and which have 31.
I have to sing a little song in my head to remember the order of the months.
I could never recite the alphabet backwards.
>I still have to think about which is left and right
If someone says "month 7" I have to count them by hand until I figure out which month they are talking about
I can't say the alphabet if I don't start from A
I still don't know where is East and where is West
I didn't know that.
Just like I didn't know you could speed up map travel by holding Ctrl+space. Seriously I probably wasted half a day of the hundred hours I played on slow ass travel I could have avoided.
Well at least it's the best shiny
I had these how to draw book for nintendo characters when I was a kid, and for some reason they called Bowser "Kerog" throughout the whole book
Thanks to them I called him Kerog for years
I had no idea I had Ripper Mode in Revengeance. I still never use it because I keep forgetting. I also went through it the first time not knowing I can dodge.
I've been stuck on this puzzle in bioshock infinite since the game released
please help :^)
My brother and I called him "King Koopa" until super mario world when we got to the castle and it says "Bowser" on it.
Being dumb and five years old I thought that was the name of King Koopa's dog.
My first shiny was a Machop. It was on Ruby and I didn't really have internet. I kept it, obviously. But I was convinced it HAD to be stronger than a normal machop. Not because it did good in battles or anything, cause I don't think it did. I just couldn't understand why they would be so rare if they were no different than any other machop.
>I thought that was the name of King Koopa's dog
Notto dis shitto again
It's always been Berenstain, the Berenstein Bears never existed
I made it to hunter rank 70 before I found out that in the water you can hold B then use up and down to swim vertically without the need to point the camera up and down.
>the Berenstein Bears never existed
WHAT THE HELL?
>mfw the only shiny I've ever encountered was
Puke green and worthless. I fucking hate that Pokemon to this day.
I thought this was just a perspective shot and that it was a full length shark.
same shit happened to me. I know the place you're talking about. That one spot in the lake with the minish dude that opens up the whole liberty shit
> just completed K: TD - my first Kirby game
> start another game straight away
> figure out eating a bad guy and pressing down gives you their power
HOLY SHIT WHY DID NOBODY FUCKING MENTION THIS ANYWHERE FFS THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING.JPEG
Yep, total bullshit. Probably the hardest Zelda puzzle I've ever faced
Worst of all is since I got it by accident I couldn't figure it out again when my friend asked for help. I just told if he kept playing the library would suddenly open
Fucking Some-aye-onay, leaving his keys in the casino, telling me I can't go back during the Elite Four.
I legit thought he was some sort of hidden character. I think Pokémon taught me half my English vocab.
>Friend keeps bugging about Dark Souls
>Decide to play it
>Want 0 spoilers
>Only advice he gives me is "learn how to parry"
>Finally play through it
>Play it at his place
>He blocks shit
>With his shield
>Like a fucking pansy
I should know better than to have friends.
oh... well at least it's getting some recognition. OFF was surprisingly good for how obscure it was.
It's a lot shorter than most JRPGs
I think it was actually made by a French guy. You could probably breeze through it in a couple hours even if you go and collect all the extra stuff to get the secret ending. It's pretty strange, like Yume Nikki-tier strange so you have to be into that kind of thing. The combat is straight forward turn based RPG style with some interesting special attacks thrown in. The story is great, the characters are solid. The music is just fantastic. I'd say it's worth playing yeah.
>tfw found the answer in a matter of seconds
phantom hourglass was my first zelda game, and i had no idea what the triforce was so on that puzzle where you had to draw one, i bumbled around like an idiot looking for more clues until i stopped playing the game entirely
>mfw finding out you don't say "hyperbole" like "hyper-bowl"
I worked my way through the water temple in Ocarina of Time without the blue tunic because I was completely unaware of its existence.
The pain was real. I do not feel proud of going through that part the way I did. I feel ashamed.
why would you go on 4chan and tell lies? there's no way this is true
I got the house to myself mostly for the next few days. I think I'll definitely give it a shot. Thanks anon
>mfw finding out "fetish" isn't pronounced "feet-ish"

>look it up just now
>that message isn't anywhere in the cave
What the fuck man
>Thought it was bad ass until I realized it wasn't
I went so fucking out of my way to get it too. I saw it in the player's guide, thought he was rad as fuck, and spent the game without a water type in my lineup because Sharpedo was gonna be my guy.
People, especially kids, just make it up as they go along and you can't convince them they're wrong.
I had a friend who thought mime in Mr Mime was pronounced mi meh. He knew the word mime but couldn't put two and two together.
tyrion lanister kills his dad on the shitter with a crossbow
>I don't think a kid cares that much about game logic as /v/ does
Imagine some kid who doesn't understand the 2DS is the alternative to a system that usually has a hinge getting presented with a puzzle telling him to press the screens together. It's not about being a game design scholar, it's about being stuck on a puzzle because the logic it's using doesn't apply to you.
i always called this fucker him koreygon, no idea why
In the hub temple I couldn't figure out the location of the third fairy so I gave up. When I got back to my DS and I'm like

I could not for the life of me find Candy Constellation. One day I did it accidentally; everything about that world was satisfying.
I've never been more embarrassed to be affiliated with this place more then now, how the fuck do you dumb asses get dressed let alone work a computer.
Why did pretty much every motherfucker add in an extra n! The only other person I knew who didn't pronounced it fucking "groodon"
Honestly, it's really dumb that they keep the ?'s PC thing until you meet the creator of the system for the region.
If you made a network system that was vital to the bakcbone of your region's functioning, the least you could do is name it.
When I was little, I didn't know how to give boosts in the other stats that weren't HP after leveleling up in Superstar Saga. When I discovered that, my mind was blown.
C'mon, don't tell me you've never made a vidya-related mistake in your life. Be real.
