whats the stupidest gaming- related thing you or one of your pals have said/did?
When my friends skip cutscenes in games like MGS, then complain about not knowing where to go next and what's happening in the story.
The dumbest thing I ever heard about a game came from a stranger.
I was playing Guitar Hero at a demo kiosk several years ago and two kids approached me to watch. After a few seconds one of them said:
"I like this game, but it needs more Tupac"
I immediately stopped playing, turned around and just glared at the kid.
Thankfully it was a stranger, because if it was a friend it probably would have been the end of that friendship.

Last year my roommate and I were chilling in my friends' dorm room. My one friend was playing Final Fantasy (or possibly Golden Sun, can't remember) on an emulator. My roommate says something along the lines of "So, this game has Pokemon style combat."
While he wasn't wrong, we then had to explain to him what a turn-based RPG is. And he has been gaming since the N64 days mind you. We all got a good laugh and facepalm moment out of that.
"What are they speaking, some weird demon-language?"
A co-worker asking about the ganados in RE4.
I have a friend who refuses to play Mass Effect because A) he didn't like how many bugs were in KotOR2 and B) he doesn't like that people make asari porn, because blue chicks aren't hot (also why he's mad WoW exists, because draenei). This would be only a little irritating if he didn't launch into a tirade about how much Mass Effect sucks at the slightest reference to it.
He's also one of those guys who'll complain to no end about a game and how bad it is while still playing it ("Arkham City didn't do it for me," he'll say after I watch him logged into Steam clocking in 40 hours of AC playtime int he span of a week), and will parrot lines from Jim Sterling reviews as the general popular opinion he's heard.
Who took the bomp from the bompalompalomp?
Hehe, most recently? I've posted and told more than a few people that The Walking Dead was crap because it was all point and click and decisions don't mean dick. Well I bought the disc and I couldn't have been more wrong. The game is quit wonderful to play.
I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed, or numbered! My life is my own.
Back in December 2004 me and a buddy decided that we were going to go through ff 6-10 in the month of January, I worked construction and it was such a terrible snow storm that December that I was off for the whole month. In every single game we had a part where we did not save for 3 hours or more and end up dying only to have to do it all over again. All 5 games, never once did we learn our lesson, I still do it to this day. I never learn. EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't always play video games, but when i do I prefer to do it in 36 hour marathons.
It has to be my brother. He's a CoD fanboy, when I told him I have BF3 instead of MW3 he went into a rage saying BF3 has 16bit graphics...
Remember kiddies, your opinion isn't fact. If someone disagrees with your opinion quit crying, get over it.
As a early teen my best friend came over and we played tomb raider non stop. One day he came over and told me he heard there was a secret code like the all weapons code that would make Lara naked. Well at our age all we thought about were video games and naked chicks. So needless to say we spent an entire summer trying to figure out the code to unlock Laras goodies. Turns out years later found out there was no code. lol was a fun summer though.
"Luckys an old buddy of mine...and by buddy I mean the a-hole that ruined my Momma's girl parts."
I have a few, all from the same friend, most of the time we generally have the same tastes in games, but with a few glaring exceptions:
He played Mass Effect for five minutes (not exaggerating), put it down and never played it again, when I asked why, his response was that he didn't like how the game "felt" which is strange considering that you don't even get to actual gameplay until about 6 or 7 minutes in.
Hated Borderlands because he felt the RPG systems were boring and disliked that it wasn't running at 60FPS.
Disliked Deus Ex: Human Revolution because it was "boring" I later worked it out of him that he was frustrated by it because he wasn't playing stealthy, kept dying, and never got past the first mission.
"So my lunch today involved both a noodle packet and a sauce packet....so yeah, things are going pretty well for me."
