DedWhat things do you do in games, that are useless, yet you can't stop doing it? Mine: In Megaman X, when I felt like an immature prick, i kept on climbing on the same wall, cause it looked funny. And in any game, i do squat thrusts for no reason.
If you wanna PM me, send it to my mrsunshinesprinkles account; this one is blorked.
UniocularIn Fallout: New Vegas I jump everywhere.
Once I get the Space Jump in Super Metroid, I can't stop myself from flying everywhere I can, just because it's fun to bounce around wide open spaces.
The Shadows Devour You.In any medieval simulation, I will always gun for the Pope. This has nothing to do with a hatred of religion, and everything to do with not wanting a guy in a hat telling my emperor of Europe to follow his word as if it were Gods. By the time I'm finished the campaign, that will be my job.
cannot into spacePlace bets on how many times "I just jump everywhere" will be posted!
Go play Kentucky Route Zero. Now.
Lord of the AviansWhenever possible, I will jump to my death.
Mighty No. 51345In Dead Space, I always jump into the void of space when possible (well, once per opening to the void).
I figure Issac would prefer that to the events of the game. I also viciously attack cuccos at least once per play-through in every Zelda game I can.

Mega Man fanatic extraordinaire
When I play as Mitsurugi in Soulcalibur IV, I always sheathe my sword right at the end of a round. And I always jumped everywhere in Oblivion. And Disgaea. Especially Disgaea.

Circle the trees in Okami. I just have to do it because they are so ugly dead.
Or How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love The Moon's Eye Plan
Until further noticeI have to search everything. Everything. Even if I know the loot is randomised.

Not a substitute for a formal medical consultation.
World's Best Powered ArmorI hop around in Skyrim all the time, as well as turn third person view on and off. Heck, any game without infinite sprint (or any kind of sprint) that isn't a multiplayer shooter, I like jumping about randomly. I might say I do it more than running sometimes.
If I screwed up something in Half Life I always shoot at my feet with a rocket launcher and die rather than bother to open up a menu and reload. Same with Saints Row 2.
In Tekken games, when I play King, I always try hitting my opponents while staying out of range of their attacks even though I should know full and well that I can't hit them from that distance... In Dynasty Warriors games, I clear the entire area of enemies even though it's just a waste of time. Same here, except for the being irritated at others part.

In Zelda games, I ALWAYS put away my sword when I'm not using it, and it bugs me when other people don't do this when I watch them play.
Conceptually FrameworkedI did that with TP, Oo T and MM, but in Skyward Sword it looks kind of cool running sword extended, plus you're holding the Wiimote anyway so it's like that's just continuing to map. Plus it's slightly more of a pain to put it away in that game.
"Nullius addictus iurare in verba magistri, quo me cumque rapit tempestas, deferor hospes."
Your army sucks.I will search tirelessly for GameBreakers and DiscOneNukes, even if the game is easy enough to not need them.

Sorry, I can't hear you from my FLYING METAL BOX!
Angry MothIn any shooter, I'm always reloading. Even when my clips are full. I just randomly click the reload button.
Who's an angry moth? You are! Yes you are! You're the fuzziest and angriest moth! Original pic.
I tend to do that too.

I get pretty anal about finding everything before I move from an area in an RPG. Fuck you, Dragon Quarter.
This hat doesn't fit!In multiplayer games, I will dick around with quick-switching between two weapons.

What'd you just say about my hair?!If there is an obviously suicidal option, I'll take it just to see what happens.
In our heart, Mr. Ando will always be a penguin.
Death Corps of KriegMario & Luigi-games: Jump in time with the music.
WRPGs: Loot everything...until my pack is full, and then I start putting down stuff that isn't worth it.
JRPGs: Grind. Even if I've finished an area, if the game is waiting for me to progress, even if I'm out of side-quests...I want more levels. And gold.
Oh, and Skyward Sword: Jump into lava. But that's not usually a planned thing. It just happens. All the time. :|
