I still don't see how you can learn that the hard way because failure does not instill any kind of lesson.
Agreed, but he's right about that fucking barrel.
Resonance Of Fate: Dont spam hero action all the time, or you'll run out of bezels and die. Spam it in moderation. Also 5 scopes and 3 barrels is not enough gun.
Borderlands: Despite what the random item generator thinks, shotguns do not double as sniper rifles just because they have a 4X zoom.
Final Fantasy XIII: Behemoth King's are not Fake Ultimate Mook s.
Rainbow Six Vegas 2: Mooks with shotguns are a very bad thing.
Resident Evil 2: DONT OPEN THE DOOR IN THE OUTHOUSE.
I'm a girl
Apologies. She's right about that fucking barrel.
Super Mario Bros.: Man, I keep dying at that one pit! If only I could jump further... Wait, whadda mean there's a run button?!?
Chrono Trigger: Do not hit the Double Golem. Do not cast any sort of spell on the Double Golem unless you are wearing gear that halves the effect or turns damage of that element into health for you. Or you will die. Very fast. Even on the easy first time through.
I agree with the Borderlands scope thing. Gotta look at the accuracy rating, too. High accuracy and you might have a decent mid-ranged gun. If it's like the six-shot boomstick from whatshisface with an accuracy rating of zero, then simply sell it for money.
Or use indoors. Good for clearing a corridor if you can land a few hits.
Borderlands: Lilith - it is advisable to put points into boosting phase powers, mostly the defensive ones like cooldown, duration and healing. She's not very durable and it's nice to have Phasewalking ready to go if a situation gets out of hand.
Touhou: Even if the things attacking you don't fire, move in a straight line, and die in one hit while you're already at a large amount of firepower, they can still kill you if you're stupid. Even if you have homing shots.

Dead Rising 2: Dont get into a fist fight with the last psychopath, as he is a cheating fuck. Bring three LMG's and just shoot the bastard.
Digital Devil Saga 2: Vritra absorbs ice.
Far Cry 2: ALWAYS wait til its dark. Enemies all have ridiculous vision and will spot you from several miles away, even if to a casual observer you appear as a hedge with a gun sticking out.
Tomb Raider (PS 1): Standing still in front of a T-Rex will result in being eaten by said T-Rex. Jurassic Park was wrong.
Final Fantasy IX: Never cast Doomsday if you cant absorb shadow.

^ Works in Fallout also. Sneaking and darkness are your best friend. Sneaking aroudn in broad daylight is a great way to be spotted, second only to runing around half-naked with your Pipboy flashlight on.
Yeah, but in Fallout, all you need is a stealth skill of around 80 and everyone is suddenly blind.
Not always, no. I've been in the stealth suit and a guy I was sneaking up on turned around and spotted me. Whhaaaa, no critical hit with the shock sword for me. In NV, Nightkin seem to spot me more. Guess they're used to spotting things out of the norm, as they have to avoid bumping into each other or something, iunno.
But Raiders? Yeah, they're blind. And stupid. They don't even have the common courtesy to drop decent loot, either.
Ghost Trick: Always examine what the objects can do. Or you will have to start over needlessly.
Chrono Trigger: even if you find Lucca horrible, try to get her some occasional action so by the time you reach double Golemn you won't be screwed.
Blazblue Calamity Trigger: Don't let Jin, Litchi, Ragna or Nu corner you.

MetalGear — You are not supposed to let the enemy see you.
X-COM — You are supposed to give your troops armor, lots of ammunition, and guns that can actually kill things. Going full-auto with a laser pistol at point blank does not work.
Street Fighter II — Hold back to block.
I agree with the Street Fighter one.
And that one.

Tatsunoko Vs Capcom: Do NOT rely on the Wiimote control schemes. Come proper tournament play of any kind, you WILL get pulverized.

Pokemon: If you try switching to a defensive advantage, most competent opponents will laugh and then get an extra turn to bypass it and pound the crap out of you.
Doom — If you move to the side and aim with the mouse, you live longer.
Mass Effect 2: Is not Mass Effect 1, standing out in the open for any length of time will get you killed. And the Vanguard class is no longer indestructible, watch your shit.
