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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ˜‰

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!
