What game mechanics stuck with you?

#1Vohn_ExelPosted 1/24/2013 9:05:26 AM
For me, there are a few games that the mechanics stuck with me long after the game was over.

When I see tall buildings and lightposts, I think about pressing R2 to websling along them like in Spiderman the movie the game 2.

When I see any sort of guard rail or low wall, I want to jump and press triangle to grind it like the Tony Hawk games.

I know there are others but I cant think of any right now. Anyone else have mechanics that stick with you like that?

Haha yeah a few of the mechanics from Mirrors Edge stuck with me. If I see something bright red, I want to use it to escape :p

Oh, you were talking about IRL. I thought you meant in other games, lol.

I guess I'll add...controller buttons appearing over consumable items or objects that I can use.

Quite often, I hit L1 when I'm about to get hurt by something, because of Ninja Gaiden. That got me killed a good number of times in Castevania: Lords of Shadow.

"WHAT!?"

"NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!"

Other games work too. In Prototype I sometimes would think of web swinging lol.

In real life? None.

Rare is the game that i put down for months and forget how to play it, though.

I do have to say the people who remember the pause cheats impress the hell out of me. I very rarely used those and it was usually after beating a game to see what it's like.
