When I was a child, Super Mario World for the SNES
was my favorite game. The gaming room in my house had a small bathroom connected to it, with a large mirror on the inside of the door. One day I moved the SNES
to the floor so the controller could reach the bathroom, and I began keeping the door open during my breaks so I could see the TV via the bathroom door's mirror. Of course, everything was reversed, so it was always more difficult to complete a level while playing in this manner. I ended up beating it more times with everything reversed than the regular way.-Thomas
I have a phone with a gamepad where a keyboard would be. The best part of it is I can play Pokemon with physical controls on my phone. I became so addicted recently, I grabbed a sandwich bag, put my phone in, duct taped the top, and played Pokemon in the shower.-Mike
When I was younger, I had a friend who had gotten Killer Instinct. I would spend the night at his house every weekend so I could play, always playing as Sabrewulf. But no matter how many times we would play, he always beat me. I finally bought the game, bought a game guide and learned every sequence of combo moves for just about every player (about a week and a half of constant practice after school). I never told my friend about doing this, and one day he invited me over for a sleep over. He made jokes about kicking my ass as he turned on the game. I trounced him using Sabrewulf with an ultra combo. He didn't want to play after that and we watched a movie. He didn't invite me over anymore after that, and our friendship faded away.-Travis
