    Here is another Gamer Habits video. Todays habit? “Take a Deep Breath!”

    Now we all know as hardcore gamers that there are certain shared tendencies and similarities. Whether its turning up to work with a ‘gaming hangover’ or swinging the controller around to aid in movement – we all do it and should take pride in our habits.

    Diagnosis:

    The “Take a Deep Breath” habit occurs when a playable character is swimming underwater!

    This compulsion causes the player to hold their breath whilst the PC swims away in game. WARNING! This game habit can kill! Remember to breath folks!

    So do you succumb to the same habit? Perhaps you only do this with specific games? Please leave your comments and opinions below!

      Oh yeah, this is totally me. I also tend to jump when my characters do and let out karate yells when I attack… I mean when *my character* attacks ^_^

      I haven’t had any issues like holding my breath or anything like that but as a kid when playing the regular NES like Mario or Contra I remember using the controller to jump and move and pulled the controller out of the socket too many times that I broke myself of that habit and then when the Wii came out I had to “retrain” myself to actually move the controller to do certain things. All these years of not moving the controller to jump or move and now you have to. Oh well.

      This habit would not kill you, just make you pass out. The only risk of death involved with this habit is for your poor character.
