Here is another Gamer Habits video. Todays habit? “I DIDN’T TELL YOU TO DO THAT!”

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 🙂

  • Here’s the second “Let’s Talk” episode about gamer habits.

    Here’s the first Gamer Habits episode I referenced.


    The “I didn’t tell you to do that habit’ occurs when the player of a videogame finds an action or level too challenging and blames the character or avatar of which they are in control.

    This is very similar to the ‘a poor workman blames his tools’ analogy; when all is going well in-game the player happily takes credit. BUT when things become too difficult the game or playable character is to blame.

    I am the worst culprit of this 😉

    So does anyone else feel this way? Perhaps you have other habits you’d like to share? please leave a comment in the comment section below!

      Another trend that goes hand in hand with this one is online multiplayer team games. People tend to not want to communicate when they are randoms (unless you’re a girl!) Now what I noticed in these games is people have a hard time thinking that they aren’t the only ones playing in that server, that everyone else is an npc to them and will be treated as such. What I’m getting at is the lack of teamwork this generates. You can keep saying hey we have no one on D and it’s CTF but how often will someone actually listen? Even with a specfic names no wai npc lvled teamate. Oh and my favorite is TF2 “OMFG we have no medics and they have like 15” and still no one flips…. Then the blames start to happen (most keep that to themselves) then another trend in public servers or w/e losing or dying = leave the server no matter how well matched. Am I the only one that sees this I tend to be a bit of a maverick.
