How many times have you died?

#1 Posted by FancySoapsMan (5834 posts) -

So far I've died about 1,700 times. I'm only in world 2, but I've been trying to get 100% on it. It's easy to get careless and just make really stupid mistakes over and over again.
 
so now other people post their death counts.

I just checked last night and i'm at 1900, but I've already finshed the light world and part of the dark world and warps. I am curious what that number will be when I'm finally done with this game. Probably close to 5000

Almost 1000 times. I'm also on World 2, also trying to 100% everything. UGH.

Yeah go to the stats section from the main menu. I'm sitting at a chill 2,100 and actually on the last level before the boss of "The End". I would say about 500 of those was trying to get The Kid, but failed at that because I got so strung out over it.

Well over five thousand. By the time I 100% it I imagine I'll be over 9000

Close to 9000 times...99% completion.

79% total completion (chapters 1-4 100%'d) and I'm at 4945. So far three levels have given me a lot of trouble and had deaths in the hundreds: The Kid's first level, one of the Hell dark world levels and the first level of the first warp zone in chapter 5 (Skyscraper). Currently working on Skyscraper. Almost completed the second level with bandage, but I was an idiot.

9700 deaths with 100% completion, getting bandages and completing some of "teh Internets" levels.

I've died 5150 times. I've got 78% total progress. 
 
Bare in mind that I've beaten.. the Kid's level,completed the dark world and got about 76 bandages.

I finished the Light World the other day and saw the first ending having died 1944 times. My overall completion percentage is a lowly 35%, but I honestly don't think I have the reflexes or the patience to push through most of the Dark World levels. Still, an awesome game and well worth the 800MSP.

I'm at 48% completion and have 1747 deaths....yikes. 
  
Note: The second after I checked this I just went and played another 45 minutes of the game after telling myself I'd work all afternoon. DAMN YOU MEAT BOY!!!!

I want to update this. I have just now 100%'d Chapters 1-5, including all the bandages. I now have 7267 deaths. Fuck you Dark Rapture!

I'm at around 17,000 deaths I think.  But I've completely finished everything and tried to work on improving a bunch of my times too.
