Mega Man 11
Conan Exiles: Yes you can set off your own gas traps. Explosive jars will almost always fall over if you ignite the fuze manually.
Better Boy 11
Nuclear Throne: You can run out of ammo and it will kill you. If you don't have a melee or, by a stroke of dumb luck, find one on the level, it will nigh-guarantee a retry.
Project X Zone You have Skills. use them. They're the only way to beat missions that require you to move quickly.
Puyo Puyo Tetris:
Don't make 4 JP alt voice Sigs play Fusion. The "Shigus" are cute and somewhat hilarious until they make lucky chains every minute or so.
Stellaris. New players will likely forget you can build mining stations around a systems power source points to generate energy credits and power stations go on planet tiles.
Hunter Call of the Wild. The Bears are masters at stealth. If you hear something softly moving around you while hunting bear with a "Wounded Fawn Predator Caller" the bear is likely behind you not in front of you in the bushes.
Herds will stampede over your happy ass if you are too close and harvest a game animal.
If it doesn't hit a 50-75% blood loss/health loss rate with a low bleed rate after 6 spots give up it won't bleed out.
It is entirely possible to chase Gold or better trophy animal across the entire map and this will take hours and the wind will seem to almost always be against you.

Fire Emblem Echoes (and any post-Awakening game with a "Casual" mode, as well as any Shining Force-style SRPG with a leader unit and no Final Death): Your allies may be able to recover and return for the next stage if they get defeated in combat, but you still lose the scenario if your leader bites it.
Persona 3 FES
Warriors Orochi 4
The game, like WO 3, doesn't care how much health you lose during a mission. Heck, the Standby mechanic encourages you to play it risky (a good thing, because you have a jump button instead of a dash / dodge button). This is really only a problem if you're more used to recent Warriors games on Nintendo systems, where health loss is a bigger deal (mostly for ratings on Adventure and Scenario maps).
Just don't get too reckless; your active warrior losing all their health is still a defeat condition, even if your other two team members are still at 100%.
Frames of Armed Conflict: Never pub an Arbitration Survival mission with any frame but Nekros.

Nuclear Throne: Don't stand on the carpet in front of the Final Boss, you numpty. Then, once you start freaking out, do keep in mind that Blood weapons take your health if you miss an attack, to a point of killing you if you happen to have 1 HP from the boss's cheeky pre-fight attack.

Warriors Orochi 4:
The interface is lying to you, there are only three ranks of weapons. A four-star weapon is simply a three-star with 8 augment slots, and a five-star weapon is a four-star with a golden augment.
Hello from page 174!
This game is quite poorly documented on the English-speaking interwebz, and you are like one of the only two mentions of it on all of TV Tropes.
For me, it's "Oh, it's already been out...for seven years?!"
Also nice to see you're still using the Éclair facepalm avatar, Reflexion. :D

Dark Souls; Do not grow complacent with your ability. Enemies you already wrecked a few times can still surprise and fuck you in the ass, given the circumstances.
Lost 30+ Humanity to a combination of new londo ghosts, falls, and the valley of drakes dragons. Falls included in both areas. (Dark Souls 1 having clunky target-lock mechanics didn't help either. Later games improved this so much, why didn't the remaster?)
Playing Fallout 4 and trying a different character type than I normally play. I learned very quickly to not throw grenades at people shooting you with automatic weapons, especially miniguns.
Don't always rely on autosave, especially if that last house/dungeon/cave you exited from to the world map was about 25 minutes ago.
Bejeweled 3 (Steam version):
Stellaris: No matter how curious you are, no matter how much you want to explore, no matter what you think you can gain from it.
Never, ever open the goddamn L-Gate before you can regularly spit multiple fleets each with at least 40 to 50K fleet power.
Spyro Reignited Trilogy: Sunny Flight is a piece of garbage and you shouldn't even bother with it. That guide you found? Chuck it out the window because the last train isn't even there.
Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise: If you care even slightly about collectibles and/or related trophies, specifically Death Cries, do NOT get any of the "attack up" upgrades before you're done with your collection. You'll just quickly get too strong for the weaker enemies, especially considering when in the game you unlock them
