Mine is, "always go the opposite of the way you're supposed to go."  Say your going down a hallway that splits left and right and the game map says to go left.  I will just naturally go right first because there is usually something that way that will help me, like health or ammo, or there might be a  collectible or unlock.

Mine is "Wait till I pause or say 'okay' before you cut in front of the teevee."

Always plug in the yellow and red cords into the tv, not yellow and white.

You should always kill the ranged/spell casting enemys first.

Spin round until really dizzy...

The game requires a good story. Or an entertaining one.

Spawn more overloads.

This. Without a good story, im less interested by games, unless that game is Street Fighter.

"sports games suck" is really the only rule I stick by.

Always bring the bigger gun.

Don't ask me what the buttons do...just press them and figure the shit out.

#21 Posted by Ineedaname (4319 posts) -

Don't bother with the game manual, I've got this.

#22 Posted by NickNorman (435 posts) -

At least when I play TF2. ;) In general: Explore everywhere before going after the boss. I hate stuff that gets lost forever. Oh, and welcome to Giant Bomb, @liugeaux!
#23 Posted by Druminator (1676 posts) -

Over the years, especially with games like Zelda, I've made it a ritual to got left first.

#24 Posted by Bruce (5264 posts) -

Mute TV and put turn on Itunes. ^_^ I have done that with every game except for Bioshock two years ago.
#25 Posted by punkxblaze (2968 posts) -

Save everywhere, because the autosave option is never on when you think it is.

#26 Posted by vidiot (2737 posts) -

Complete EVERYTHING in single player.

#27 Posted by Xeiphyer (5601 posts) -

Always take the wrong path to check for secrets, and go back if you accidentally take the right one.
 
Also, Games based off of movies always suck.
 
Reload gun after every kill

I am absolutely the same way.  I don't want to miss a single thing, so I go the opposite direction first to make sure there is nothing there I would miss, then I backtrack and go the direction I was initially told to go.  Tends to make all of my games play twice as long.  Awesome when you have achievements or trophies that encourage such gameplay. :)

See this? It's a cutscene. See that? That's the door. See you later on!

I'm guilty of it too, I say guilty because there always manages to be someone a few seconds behind that person to kill me while I'm reloading.

Personally I don't get how people can handle doing that. I don't care how bad the audio the game has I have to listen to it as it was intended. My sister that when she plays and it annoys me just seeing her do it.  
#34 Posted by SinGulaR (2282 posts) -

No cheats, no guides. And manual only if it's absolutly neccessary.

#35 Posted by natetodamax (19191 posts) -

Play through the single player first, and than go back to find the collectables.

"Don't buy unless you're pretty sure you'll finish the game."
 
Actually... number one is probably closer to "Make sure you have a bowl loaded and plenty on the tray before you play."

The amount of times I've said those exact words... 
 
Also, I reload my gun after every kill, always, for ever.

Please tell me you didn't do that for Dead Space.
#40 Posted by lordofultima (6230 posts) -

"Left is right, right is wrong." I use this ALWAYS when there are two paths splitting apart. Never look back, unless of course you find out that left was actually wrong, and right was well...right. Then you have to. USE THESE WORDS WISELY.

@Retrogimp: I'm the exact opposite, when people ASK to go in front of the T.V. I'm like FOR FUCK SAKES JUST WALK BY ALREADY, STOP ASKING ME QUESTIONS.
#43 Posted by Retrogimp (187 posts) -
@lordofultima: Haha Fair enough. Most people don't ask me though as the look I give them usually resembles the "I'll shoot you motherfucker if you ask again" look. Especially playing Call of Duty multiplayer. Every second counts.
But, apart from that I'm a well-adjusted considerate member of society.

WE NEED MORE DOTS!

#45 Posted by Retrogimp (187 posts) -

But like others have said here, my rule is always go left. Even if there is a cliff leading to certain doom.

I do that too. But mainly I try my hardest not to look at trophies on my first playthrough. I like the first session to be as "natural" as possible.

You have to stop doing that, it's good to keep a decent amount of ammo in your gun, but if you're good then you don't need the whole clip and constant reloading will just get you killed faster.
 
Anyway mine is simple... it's fun. If I don't enjoy the game (at that moment), then I just play a different game, or not at all.

I agree completly. 
 
Headshots are important.
