god damn metal gear games

#3 Posted by mordukai (7164 posts) -

Just wondering if other people do it to. Every time a ame tells me to press start I first press the A or X first and only then press the start if it doesn't work. 

#4 Posted by Milkman (17071 posts) -

I just do what the games tell me to do.

#5 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

I press whatever is cloeset to my right thumb at that point and usually it works with X. A. B, Y, Start, X, Square, Circle, Triangle and Start 
 
So I pick C

I never press start. I hate that shit. Although, I always find it super weird that a game would explicitly instruct you to press a specific button and completely fall back on itself and let any button work.

X. Usually the closest button. Plus I do it out of curiosity with so many games asking you to press Start but having the X/A buttons work also, it's a goal of mine to find one that stands by its notice exclusivity :P

I just slap the controller with my dick until something happens, let it know who's boss.

I think I bought one of your old controllers once. 
It was laughing non stop screaming "it was smaller than my analog stick"  
Was a little weird at the time but now I understand

i usually press A or X what ever button it is. i just think it's easier that way. it's old to press start at the beginning of a game.

I wait for it to press start. So far, no game has disobeyed me.

#13 Posted by Empirepaintball (1395 posts) -

Always start. Always.

@Akeldama: This always got to me for some reason. The screen is already unnecessary, why make it more so?
#16 Posted by fugie7 (1109 posts) -

#17 Posted by TheGreatGuero (9130 posts) -

......................... why does this matter to anything?

#20 Posted by crusader8463 (14425 posts) -

The first thing I do is shake my head and buckle in for a bad PC port, since there is no start button on a PC.

#21 Posted by PrivateIronTFU (3874 posts) -

For most games, when it tells you to press start, that's the button you HAVE to press.

#22 Posted by RuthLoose (821 posts) -

Press Return for great victory!

I'm surprised no one posted THIS yet

#24 Posted by Yanngc33 (4496 posts) -

Now i press the guide button first to see the achievements

#25 Posted by Azteck (7449 posts) -

I rebel every time. I insist on merely sitting there, waiting for the game to stop being a bitch and just start.

#26 Posted by FesteringNeon (2164 posts) -

I press 
a,b,a,c,a,b,b

#27 Posted by Cubic (171 posts) -

I just press one of the face buttons. I once actually pressed the start button and it felt wrong, so I backed out and pressed one of the face buttons.

#28 Posted by foggel (2763 posts) -

A.
 
No, I press A first.
 
I mean the button, not poll selection.

Kinda have to, right?

#37 Posted by JJWeatherman (14560 posts) -

No, I'm a rebel. This has prevented me from playing most games released, but I stand by my principals. What is a man without his principals?

I usually try the Konami code first, but that's my second choice.
#40 Posted by Gamer_152 (14091 posts) -

Yeah I usually do. Then again maybe I'm too subservient, I once saw a sign in a public toilet which said 'Wet Floor' so I did.

I think I go a bit back and forward. But I can't ever remember pressing something and nothing happening.
