Angry dont you just hate it when...

...your freind or family member or someone, askes for your help in a game. youve allready helped them a few times and yet they still keep on crawling back to you. (my freind wont even go look it up on the internet because that is "dumb")

I had to go throughout the exact same game but a didn't get any special help from someone! (he calls himself a legend of zelda fan but any GOOD legend of zelda fan would figure it out and any ok legend of zelda fan would look it up on the internet! [am i right or what?]) just make like wario and DIY!!!

Re: dont you just hate it when...

So because I felt like I was coping out if I used the Internet when trying to 100% Minish Cap, I'm not all that great of a Zelda fan?

Well darn :p

But nah, personally I enjoy helping people with their games. It makes me feel nice, and sorta priviledged that they'd ask me in the first place.

I agree, and it's pretty darn funny too. Helping my Mom play Majoras Mask was the most hilarious thing ever.

Re: dont you just hate it when...

I second this. One of my best memories is trying to teach my dad how to play Spiderman on the N64... Haha. (I know it's not Zelda, but we didn't quite get to Zelda after that.)

Helping another person with a game could be a way to bond, you know? My brother and I had a lot of good times playing Zelda together (which was actually him playing through stuff for me, and me watching in amazement. ^^)

It's nice to see how happy they are when you help them, too.

And, to get back to your original point, I don't see how getting stuck on a puzzle and needing help makes you any less of a Zelda fan. One of the great things about Zelda is they don't keep their puzzles the same from game to game. You could have played every one before OoT and still needed help in the Water Temple, because they don't make patterns out of their dungeons... >.>

Re: dont you just hate it when...

Im a living walkthrough for ALttP. My boyfriend would call me sporadically when he first got the game for the VC and needed a hand due to the fact he couldnt remember much about the game. I actually found it enjoyable to help him through it.

Note: link9326, this is how it was done before the internet happened. When people got stuck on games, they would make maps, backtrack, and brainstorm with their friends in order to get through a game. Guides really didnt start happening until around 1990 or so when Nintendo Power launched. You knew a dude who beat the game? Call or invite him over and have him give you some hints! Twas the way.

Re: dont you just hate it when...

Yeah, those good old days... I used to just rely on N64 magazines, most of which were from the UK... That or I'd ask the other kids if they knew what to do, or if their friends knew.

That or I'd just the leave the game for a while until I had it figured out. Sometimes just leaving it in the back of your head helps. Gets you a clearer perspective.

And yes I was like a gaming guru as a kid, with a fat pocketbook of cheats from A-Z and everything xD

Re: dont you just hate it when...

Yeah. I remember 100%ing Oracle of Seasons/Ages for the first time. That was a team effort with one of my friends. I've since helped a lot of people with the games.

I remember when buying the guide was the way to knowledge. The Majora's Mask guide was the first one I had and I was so excited. It was like I had a portal to infinite knowledge.

Now I just look on the internet when I'm stuck, and while it solves my problem faster, it seems less fun in the long run.

I acually somewhat enjoy it. It gives me a sense of superiority over the person in some manner

Re: dont you just hate it when...

When I get stuck in a game, I don't ask for my friends' help or look it up on the Internet.

It's way more satisfying to figure it out yourself.

Re: dont you just hate it when...

My sister: "I need help!"
Me: "What is it?"
"My game won't work."
"It's not plugged in"
"Oh, thanks!"

Later...

Sister: "Can you help me again?"
Me: "Sure, what do you need?"
"What do I do here?"
*title screen*
"Press start."
"Thanks!"

My girlfriend is an utter noob. We spent 2 weeks in florida and while I worked on a school project she played Mario 64 on my DS. I think every 5-10 minutes or so she's ask for help, not knowing what to do, where to go or how to execute a long jump dispite having been told and shown at least 3 times

Wait what?

I was under the assumption that anyone who used the internet was a lonely, inclusive sociopath.

DO YOU MEAN THE GOVERNMENT LIED TO ME?

From that statement I can only assume you're a virgin.

Don't you just hate it when fanboys think that they're superior to people who don't avidly play the games they like?

Yes! How dare they not be shining ideals of twitch-reflex perfection! How dare they not pick up a game and instantly be world-class players! How dare they ask politely for assistance from someone they know can help them!

What's this world coming to when everyone isn't an instant expert at everything and where people dare to talk to each other?

How dare different people be at different skill levels! You should start being worse at games in order to be identical to them!

Fandom has nothing to do with skill. Many football fans would make poor football players. Many people are fans of movies that they could never write or direct, of actors they could never compare to, and I'm a fan of several games I doubt I'll ever finish.

Being elitist doesn't do you any favours.

Re: dont you just hate it when...

I hate it when something happens that kills you, and you try over and over and the same thing happens, so you go on the internet to look for a solution. But then you can't find it. This happened on Goldeneye 007 Wii when you have to defend Natalya. There was a huge explosion and it ends, and you could never get rid of the explosion!

Re: dont you just hate it when...

It was kinda funny when my sister smashed the pause button and ran away as she saw King Dodongo.


Then annoying when she made me beat it.


I had to talk a friend through Hearts of Iron III once. It took ages, and I didn't cover everything. Hell, there are still parts I do not understand.
