If you are going the right way, you are going the wrong way. Check the other areas first for loot before moving on

No. Real talk, this is BS. This is the same as the dumb "If you're taking flak you must be over the target" thing that conspiracy theorists spout.

There are many ways to make enemies. Lots of people being pissed off at you doesn't necessarily mean you're a lone, courageous truth-teller. It could just mean you're a total jerk.

Yes, thank you. OP's takeaway is the same as the people that think having "haters" means you are "doing it right."

Maybe you are. Maybe you're just a self centered ass.

I like to think OP means valuable lessons in video games that apply to video games. I don’t think he meant real life lessons, could be wrong.


Gooseloff t1_je7qa4x wrote

I get what you’re saying, but— I think in this case, OP just meant in video games, specifically.

Big open areas/rooms usually means bosses.

Especially if there were a suspicious amount of ammo and healing items in the room before

Most important lesson of video games:

They are supposed to be fun, and if you are not having fun you should quit playing.

A video game is one of the few things in life you can quit with no negative consequences.

I tend to ignore the area I'm supposed to go and check all other areas first before progressing.

Area with a good amount of usable items+no enemies=Boss is coming

If you see huge ass Flies moving towards you then you took the wrong route

Apart from the many silly stuff I can mention. I'm pretty convinced that games have either given or help develop my ability to fix stuff. E.g to be able to sit for hours and fuss over a problem until you can figure it out or fix it. Which is a very valuable skill to have as a software developer.

A valuable lesson taught by video games: Walking in front of the TV when someone is playing a video game can potentially result in someone getting their ass kicked.

Different strokes for different folks.

The neat part of gaming is that much like novels, there are so many different genres. The best part is when you think you dislike a particular genre, then you try a game out and discover how amazing it is.

Depends on the game.

In Metro series, for example, whenever the game (usually via NPC) tells you "Come this way!", the correct play is to turn 180 degrees, go around the corner and usually find a huge supply cache, new weapons, etc. The game was absolutely hilarious in this regard. By the end of Metro Last Light (second game in the series) it basically became automatic, whenever the game leads me left, I always go right.

AtrociousAK47 t1_je6qys4 wrote

then you have those games that throw fuck tons of of continuely respawning enemies at you, or alternatively 1 or two stupidly op enemies that may or may not be actually invincible and coded to always 1-tap you, as a way of saying "you arent supposed to go this way, go back"

or in other words, "beef gate" and "border patrol"
