What's the dumbest thing you've ever done while playing video games?<br />
<br />
I'll go first: I was playing Splinter Cell (the original <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /> ) and I spent a good half-hour looking for a stupid computer, and shooting out lights to avoid being seen. So finally I see the computer terminal, along with a camera pointed right at it. So to avoid being seen, I shoot out the square light by the computer. I get get close, and realise that I just smoked the monitor, and so I have to start the entire level over. <img src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Mad" class="inlineimg" /> <img src="/images/smilies/gunner2.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Gunner2" class="inlineimg" />

I have never done anything stupid, but a couple friends of mine were watching another friend play Red Faction and he got a rocket shot at him and I yelled "DUCK" and he ducked (real life) and nearly fell out of the chair. I was laughing for about 15 minutes. This was almost 2 years ago and I still give him crap about it whenever I see him playing any games.

omg just remeberd another thing, well its not totally gaming but its to do with it.<br />
<br />
Sitting on PS2 with my mate 5 years ago, we were best buds (he moved to dubai)<br />
<br />
But anyway we were playin Fifa 2001 and well it was the last few minutes of the game, we were drawing with some score.<br />
<br />
Last minute i cross it into the box and bycle kick into the goal.<br />
<br />
Im so happy i jump out of the chair into the air with my fist way up high .......................<br />
<br />
The thing is ... I hit the Glass Lamp Shade on the light, well lets say it flew across the room and my room was showered in shattered glittering glass as the game replayed my goal.<br />
<br />
<br />
Thanks for letting me re-live this memory <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

Socom 2 I was playin it online. It worked rather well for it being online for PS2, anyway, I was running around as a Seal and for about the fourtith time that day I stepped over a land mine. Me being already pissed decided to kick one of my shoes lying on the ground. It managed to roll it self end over end and put itself through one of my windows... Parents got really pissed at that one

Welll I don't think this is necessarily dumb, but I sure felt dumb....<br><br>
I was playing The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX for Gameboy Color...<br><br>
I got stuck on that dungeon with the pillars. A lot of people would've just gone online and cheated their way through it with a strategy guide, and If anyone in here does that then fine... but I think using strategy guides in the gaming world is dishonorable <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick out tounge caps">. Cheating is unacceptable! It is the challenges, not the easy parts, that makes one grow in any area.<br><br>
Anyway... I spent TWO WEEKS on that dungeon... I must've gone into every room 100 times before it finally clicked. I felt <i>so</i> ******ed... but oh the joy and jubilation when I figured that out. I'll never forget that hahaha.<br><br>
I dunno.. I've never really done anything really stupid or funny with video games like your'e wanting. I used to always fall for people's bait in Halo 2, now they fall for mine <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick out tounge caps">. Pop off a couple of shots with the battle rifle, run around the corner... they follow, BLAMMO with the shotgun. Inevitably the n00bs will fall for the same trick over and over and I'll get a killing spree lol.. Sometimes they wise up and back off, but then they just get pwnt in the head with the battle rifle <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">.<br><br>
I play with some of the best guys on campus and we're always flabberghasted by how people fall for the same tricks OVER and OVER.... some peoples brains just turn off when they "game" I guess, though calling their playing "gaming" is somewhat of a stretch.

In hl2 it took me 2 hours at the part when you have to get off the fan boat and open the big flood gate by shooting the explosive barrels that makes the beam bust through it. I thought you had to jump over one of the fences so i spent 2hrs trying when i finally saw the barrels. i almost gave up. but i didn't. lol

Pass out drunk in the middle of some zone in Everquest. Something killed me and, the next morning, I logged in and was at the graveyard. Out of all the hundreds of zones...I had no idea where my corpse was. It took me 8 hours of running nekked through all of the most likely zones to find the one my corpse was in.

I watched my friend who is really buff (think Arnold without the accent). Scream like a girl for a good 5 seconds in complete horror. Over a Flood that jumped right up int he middle of the screen in Halo 2. It was hilarious. I seriously almost died laughly.

Um, let's see, there are alot.<br>
Maybe one of the times i consistently shot my brother in the head in unreal.<br>
I can't really remember any of the good moments that are stupid, but i have a mean one. I wupped my brother at Halo 2 (as i usually do) and he finally got so mad he hit me in the head with my dad's Duke(yes one of the big ones) Xbox controller. It didn't feel good.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

I mixed up Oblivion and WoW and kept hitting E to jump for like a day until I got used to the controls again.<br />
<br />
I punched a barrel on Doom once it killed the other guy though so I was somewhat happy.<br />
<br />
I had just finished hooking my computer back up after putting in a 2nd GB of memory and WoW refused to login. Kept spitting back disconnected from server. About 5mins later I plugged the LAN cable in and it worked fine.<br />
<br />
I once tiered to Tkr from Path for 70 levels of hell and they buffed path right afterwards. But after that I went Merc and it was all good.
