We gamers have been playing video games for we don’t even know how many years. While playing games we have picked up quite a few habits and we know you have too. So today let’s talk about the compulsive gaming habits you might regret about.

Uncounted hours of gaming session

First let’s talk about the long hours we engage during a gaming session, except that it’s not just few hours, it turns out to be the entire night. We start in the evening, hoping to have a good taste of the game, it turns out to finish when you have to rush to your school or college. You might not have accomplished anything, you run around the open world, blow random things up, get arrested a lot and so on. It’s so easy to get immersed in a good game and as much as video games are super fun, it is one of the best ways to pass your time. “Holy Crap, where did that 10 hours go? I only did like…2 missions?”

Getting Hyped

Yes it is easy to get excited about new games that are coming. New trailers come out, previews and what not; the online media bombard you with so much content that you are submerged into the fantasy world. Even if you know that this is nothing but marketing strategy and that they are making sure it looks awesome, you are still going to buy the very moment the game is released. You might end up slapping your own face after finding how awful the game is and you still wasted thousands to buy it. “Why didn’t I wait for the Sale?”

Reloading the gun for no reason

This is something quite common in First Person Shooter (FPS) players. Even if you have fired a single bullet and the entire magazine is still loaded, you will end up reloading for no reason and for whatever reason you won’t even be able to stop. Even the people watching you play might start thinking you are retarded.

Loudly swearing your monitor

This is something almost every gamer will relate to. Whether you die, or shoot a civilian, or fail to complete a mission, or you are too frustrated with a game; you might are still young or you do have kids standing next to you; either way you end up swearing loudly and something happens afterwards that you might not have desired. You either end up having a trouble with parents, or end up getting an awkward silence followed by an angry look from your wife and of course being tagged as immature compared to your kid.

Quick saving too much

When you are allowed to save everywhere, you end up saving frequently and unnecessarily. Although it is a good habit as you can start over at the last saved spot when you game crashes. But you also fill all the save slots very fast and then you start using the quick save button. However you start regretting the moment you realize that you saved in a really bad spot as you have taken a wrong track for a mission and the only way to start over is to choose from one of those very old save games. “Common, not again with that stupid boss!!!”

Saving up an item for a boss fight

While playing the campaign of your favorite game you would often stock pile a lot of potion or various kinds of weapons until the point when the inventory also get frustrated of your habit. The funniest part is that when the boss arrives you even end up not using them. “God dam I could have used all these to get to the boss faster….”. And then you see shop right after the boss with the shop keeper smiling at you, as if he is teasing you, “See I got what you want, but never mind you got all of that. Idiot”.

The never ending turns

In a turn based game you keep telling yourself “let’s wait for another turn”, but that turn doesn’t satisfy your hunger as you keep waiting for the next one as you want to be in a better position resource wise or in a better strategic location. But it never end and it keeps going on until you find the weird crow starring at you from the window because it’s already morning. “Oh my god someone save me from this addiction.”
