Default What r your bad gaming habits?

....either in game or out?

When playing BF3 and I'm confronted face to face with the enemy I hit the duck button by reflex and it screws up my aim and therefore I'm mowed down.

Sometimes I'll be snacking on something and I'll get taken out in multiplayer cause I'm not holding the controller right.

When playing Dark Souls which has absolutely no pause at all, sometimes I run out of juice on my batteries and I get killed just standing there. I still get killed trying to slap a fresh battery pack in! this one is not really a habit....more like bad luck.

Jumping in fight games. I just can't resist sometimes! I should be using dashes more and opening myself up with jumps. One of several bad habits you develop in fighting games.

Spamming A in 2k12 to skip the cut scene replays only to get penalised for excessive calls for pass and bad calls for pass as the game doesn't realise i'm just trying to skip the replay.

Running slants in Madden... and still throwing it if the MLB is standing right there.

Hit stick misses in Madden

Overly conservative, scared to die with a good kill streak going in cod.

Stealth. My first instinct is to jump out and kill everything. I hate sneaking like a pussbag.

This x1000. Nothing worse than still passing it on a slant when you know the defender is right on him and it gets picked off. Thats happened way too many times to me.

This.

FPS games, I reload my weapons at the worst possible moments sometimes, or forget to reload. The smart thing to do would be to just pause for a couple of seconds, or switch to my secondary if in close combat. But sometimes I get a bit too impatient, start a gun fight, then realise I only have about a quarter left of my clip. I could win so many more close quarter gun fights if I was more aware of how much ammo I had left.

I'll come back to a fight when it's trvial if the mechanics are too aggravating. Oblivion made this REALLY easy to do.

Likewise.

I have the worst of the worst ocd reload tendencies of anyone I know, I swear. I've lost many a kills due to needless reloading with a solid 90% full clip.

Blaming stuff on teammates, or the game itself. I can never accept the fact that I ****ed up.
