Stories of how you did stupid shit and fucked yourself over.

playing Isaac Antibirth
use soul hearts to get into Mausoleum
go through devil deal door
get neat devil deal shit, and leave
>THE FUCKING MAUSOLEUM DOOR IS FUCKING GONE
I was on a fucking amazing run as Azazel
even managed to find the fabled "The R Key" it restarts the entire run but you keep every upgrade you got before, leading to potentially infinitely OP runs
I fucked it all up and lost an amazing high damage high amount of soul hearts dark bum seed that was PERFECT for killing The Witness because I used my soul hearts on the Mausoleum door before going into a devil deal

decide to complete an Empire campaign I started on Total Warhammer
doing fine for the first 75 turns
only own the starting territory because I wanted to use the AI as a buffer between me and Chaos
"the AI is surely not so retarded as to completely be wiped out without any intervention on my part"
all of my allies are getting BTFO by the Vampire Counts and Vlad with his waifu Isabelle
Don't have the territory or funds to expand my army because none of my allies wanted to trade or confederate with Emperor Karl Franz
<this must be the fault of that wolf worshiping fuck Toddbringer
All of the territory around me except Marienburg Is owned or sacked by vampires and necromancy using heritics
Marienburg declares war on me because I trespassed into their territory about 60 turns ago

Look at him peasants, look at him and laugh at his incompetence of trusting anyone but the King to protect him.

<saved game on the only save in the middle of a boss fight right as the boss is swinging his weapon to hit you.
get hit
reload
die
get hit

it was always an incredible feeling of accomplishment that i got managed to always save myself by mashing the correct buttons just a half second into loading the game.

Playing a LotR Fellowship of the Ring movie tie-in game, digging it because I'm a dumb kid
Playing through the mines of moria, doing my thing, fall off cliff into death pit after it had been a really long time since I'd saved. The game did not have autosaves.
Panic, pause game, save because of dumb kid brain, over my prior save slot
Load, fall. Load, fall. Load, fall.
After I restarted I don't think I even made it out of the Shire again before I lost interest in the game. The entire beginning section was irritating, you had to escape the Shire while avoiding detection from Ringwraiths.

I recall the LOTR movie licensed games were actually pretty fun.

I bought FFXIII twice, probably wasted about 80-90 hours in the game and never even bothered beat it either time

(checked)
I have no idea what any of that means.

run out of in-game currency for getting characters with very little means to gain more in time for me to get said character
spend 43€ on the game to buy in game currency

Couldn't you just restart the game and get new characters until you get what you wanted?

playing KOTOR II
stay up late completing the entire prologue planet (well, it's kind of an asteroid, but whatever)
do this in one go, my last save is probably from the first 10 minutes
realize, "shit, I need to save this"

in my tired daze I click "Load" twice, loading my original save several hours prior
FUCK

Playing X-COM EW
Got a sniper to colonel rank for anyone who hasn't played the game they're possibly the strongest units in the entire game
Pretty fucking hyped to give him some genetic mods and make him bloody unstoppable
Fuck up and somehow send him to have his limbs cut off and make him a robot
To this day I have no idea who I did I fuck up that hard

Jace Price

How is that a bad thing? Snipers who got promoted so high have amazing aim, and MECs can shoot twice and shit. So MEC damage+sniper aim= an even more overpowered unit than colonel snipers.

mario and luigi superstar saga
that one muscular queen boss fight
if you hit her crown she takes single digit damage and so does whoever hit her
the fight ended up lasting over an hour but i still win
years later decide to replay the game
notice you could attack her arms to make her crown fall off and deal much more damage

This is especially bad in games that have a fadein after reloading. You have to do it blind.

Bentley Thomas

play games to distract myself when I was young and couldn't go out for reasons
become addicted
start to hate real life because it gets in the way of my games
avoid as much responsibility as possible
never go out
never complete high school
never get a job
no friends
can't support myself
stuck living off welfare like a nigger
Th-thanks electronic games.

Polite sage for not really fitting the thread's theme.

For you to post that confession out of nowhere makes me think you're fed up with your life and want things different. To you, I recommend a paradigm shift for your life. Reimagine it. Live anew. Be better. Good luck
