So I feel like a total loser. I get waaaaaaay too emotional when playing video games. That’s probably why I don’t play a lot. Well a few months ago we bought the game Uncharted because I like playing the Tomb Raider games and it’s said to be similar. I was having a fun time playing a new game until a point where I got stuck.

I’m playing on the easiest setting and I keep getting killed. The spot in the game is a small area where a bunch of guys come out and I have to kill them. Well, I keep running out of ammo and there’s too many of them shooting so when I try fighting one, the rest shoot me to death. Now, I’ve only played it a few times now but I get too emotional as I said earlier. Yelling at the tv, stomping my feet and tonight I actually started crying. I don’t know where the heck that came from, but yes, there were tears. :(

This makes me so mad cuz I wanna play the game, as the other parts were fun, but this one spot I can’t get past. So I’m afraid to play again Yes, afraid. I wish I didn’t get so emotional. I mean, I feel like I’m incompetent not being able to finish a part on the easiest settings at towards the beginning of the game. Ugh. Shake my head in shame.

    Games can be really frustrating at times. I feel you on that. :( Sometimes when a game gets too hard you really want to give up. Sometimes it’s fun to play until the point you get killed and you die trying, but what really annoys me is when I am stuck in one spot and can’t go anywhere. I used to play a game called Z and I’d always die near the end and I wouldn’t beat the other team, but it was still loads of fun playing up until that point.

    I don’t think you should be afraid though! You can do it. Just keep pursuing. I remember being stuck on a levelled game, and I couldn’t skip any levels, so I was hell stuck. I finally, eventually got past it. :)

      Aww… Thanks Georgie! :) I just hate getting stuck at a certian point like that, especially at the beginning (although so close to the end would be frustrating too!) One of the Tomb Raider games back in the day I got stuck on the second level and couldn’t figure out where I had to go. Eventually I bought the cheat book :doh:

    This blog made me LOL. I’m so glad to know I’m not the only one that does this. I don’t really game much anymore but there have been plenty of times when I was playing the Elder Scrolls: Oblivion on my brothers xBox 360 and I would get stuck and just quit for weeks.

    I don’t think I’ve ever cried but I do scream a lot, especially if it’s a dark scary place with that ominous booming music in the background. Scares the crap out of me every time. haha I got to the point where I had to have someone in the room with me watching. =P

      hehehe… Yeah, I was trying to explain to my husband that I’m nervous now everytime I try playing because I’m probably going to die, and he’s like “don’t be nervous, it’s a GAME” :P at him I say! lol I’ve screamed at games too, if they’re REALLY scary, I’ve mostly jumped at a scary part :)

    I don’t really play games like that, but I do have one that I’m stuck on. I have been for about a year at the same spot. It’s been that long because I hate trying to get past that spot. I do admit I yell when I’m playing this game just because I know it’s SO easy and in the end I’m making it harder then it really is. Ha ha.
