I changed my GameCube's clock ...
while playing Animal Crossing.
I've cloned my fair share of Pokémon (though all "legit", at least). I've abused quick saving/loading in plenty of games. I'm using a guide to play Persona 3 Portable and max all my S. Links in the first playthrough.
Oh, and I once fucked a Nintendo 64 before getting married to it.
I play fighting games for the single player content.
Hey now, that's not so bad with a few of the fighters that have come out lately! :P
As for my "sin"
I bought Black Ops 2... Just for the Strike Missions. >_>
And have never touched its multiplayer or zombie modes. <_<
..... Its a good thing I wasn't disappointed. :P
My only gaming sin was taking a straw to a Tekken machine and enabling Free Play. It sucked too because the next week it was gone and replaced with Die Hard Arcade
Die Hard Trilogy on PS1 was great though. The Arcade doesn't appear to be so good....
I've never played a single minute of a Legend of Zelda or Final Fantasy game; while Super Mario Kart is obviously the best of the series, I will not balk at throwing down on some Double Dash; speaking of Mario, the last Mario game I played to completion was The Lost Levels; I don't play current generation games on an HD display because I've never been able to afford one; I thought playing as Raiden for the bulk of Metal Gear Solid 2 was awesome -- I wasn't an avid game player at the time and it really confounded the few expectations I had for it; TIE Fighter is the greatest video game of all time (this isn't a sin per se, but I feel it important to publicly mention TIE Fighter every so often).
I never finished L.A. Noire because at every wrong dialogue choice I made, I reload the scene. So after 10 hours I was still at the second department, and was done!
Also never finished GTA IV, because the controls of the camera was awful and the game never clicked with me.
From time to time, I use a game guide to just plug some side stuff-type holes and then I call myself a completionist. And while I am at it, lately I find myself buying a game, doing everything there is to do (dialogs, side missions etc.) for the first third of a game or so and then just say to my self "fuck it" and beeline the story to the finishline.
I sold my barely played copy of Eternal Sonata and was unable to feel anything out of Ni No Kuni because I am a mega-sucker for scifi.
Instead I bought the PS2 Phantasy Star Collection from Japanese PSN (English versions built in) and relived the best times ever of 16bit JRPGs.
(Feels more like a sin than a case of taste. Tales of Graces F is fine of course.)
OOoooh boy. Lets see here now...
I've played all the Fire Emblems that have been released state side, and would reload whatever chapter I was in if any one of my units bit the dust in all of the games.
In The Old Republic, I'd use Esc to quit out of conversations until I get the best amount of loyalty from my companion.
I still haven't beaten Xenoblade, because I feel the need to do EVERYTHING.
I don't buy games on the computer till they're on steam.
I occasionally disappear from mmo's without a trace.
I have a Wii U and mainly use it for netflix.
I never play above Normal difficulty unless there is a specific reason to do so
If there is a way to get the Best ending in the game, I will look it up immediately to make sure I do everything correctly for it.
I Can't play point and click adventure games without looking up solutions...
I also abuse quick saves in any game that will allow me them, ranging from fallout to punchout on the 3ds...
and this is just the start.
I have a Wii U and bought a two terabyte hard drive for it. I played Nintendo Land for maybe an hour, New Super Mario Bros U for about 3-4 hours, and ZombiU for about an hour and a half. I think Nintendo is no longer for me.
Also I have never played a Zelda game besides Link's Crossbow Training.
@Snail: Come on, man. That's one of the best bosses in the game. You're not supposed to wreck it like that.
I actually considered going back to play it, especially after I learned of a way of beating the boss that made me keep his camouflage. But then 2 days passed after I saved, meaning that unless I waited a whole week I'd be taken back to that prison (or whatever it is that happens). Again. No thank you sir.
When I got dragged back to the prison, I just reset the damn game.
That works if he hit you too many times or whatever and if you saved before the fight. The first time I got dragged back I hadn't saved, and now that I did I've let more than 2 days go by, meaning that simply resetting won't prevent Snake from being dragged, since he should just be asleep every time I load the save file.
I love the Legend of Zelda series, have had a great time with those games, the music and puzzles. Only I have never finished a Zelda game. The experience also just fizzles out, I stop playing, come back to the save but forget where I was what I have and just give up. I have played Links Awakening, Ocarina of Time, Wind Waker, Twighlight Princess, Phantom Hourglass but have not finished any of those games.
