  • Take a look at the newest Gamer Habit video!

    Diagnosis:

    The “Oh, My Heart” habit can strike many times in a game for a variety of different reasons!

    For example, this mock heart-attack may occur when a playable character falls from a great height, walks off a ledge and/or jumps for the wrong platform. It may also be brought on by a sudden and seemingly impossible boss fight or the feeling of impending, in-game doom.

    But, more often than not, this sudden heart palpitation will also be followed by a cold sweat, jitters and the ‘oh crap’ feeling that last-gen gamers knew so well…

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

      This usually happens to me when jumping cliffs in Uncharted games. It’s like when you sneeze, you know, your heart skips a beat as it happens! :-/

      Also, the preview image of the video makes your house look haunted. Your hand isn’t in view, but someone’s shadow figure is waving helloooooo at you…. time to call the Ghostbusters methinks. :-P

      You call it something else than I do. I call it the ‘oh ****!’ moment because that’s what I shout when it happens ha!
