We all have 'em. In life and, especially, in video games. So, what habits, that you would consider "bad", compromise your gaming personality/life? It could be from skipping cutscenes to leaving your discs out of their cases. So let's hear it, if you care to share.

In RTS games: Getting upgrades before tech units
I dunno why i do this, i just want to have a advantage in upgrades at the cost of a bigger army xD

In CoD zombies i keep gambling at the Mystery Box till i get a LMG or a Wonder Weapon, and i waste tons of points in the process xP

    I do the same thing in RTS games. Certain ones don't upgrade all of your units and structures that are already made once you upgrade and I hate that. When I create my units/structures I want them to be as powerful as they can be so I tend to lack in defense and focus to much on upgrades and resource collecting in the beginning.

      Saving after I know I've probably already saved. Well, it's not a bad habit, but I get the feeling that I'm wasting time and will forever be behind by a few seconds in all my life's endeavours.

      Ah, but the biggest offender would be reloading weapons when I don't need to, leaving me unnecessarily vulnerable. Maybe that's part of why I like shotguns with tubular magazines — one can stop the reload partway through and not have it be for nothing. Indeed, constantly reloading can be an integral part of using shotguns effectively as the short-range weapons they are in video games. This all reminds me of the Hunting Shotgun in Fallout: New Vegas; amazing weapon if one has the Shotgun Surgeon perk and good Agility, but the reload animation could easily glitch if one moved while reloading.

        The main one that comes to mind is repeating the same mistake over and over even though I'm well aware what is causing the death (especially in Super Meat Boy).

          Leaving disc's in another games cover, leaving the disc's out of their covers and deleting my file for the thousandth time to start fresh and never complete it. xD

            OK~

            1. Doing multiple things just to see what would happen, then restarting the game.

            2. Get bored of a game halve way through.

            3. Forgetting about the game I'm playing... And forgetting to turn it off.

            And restarting on animal crossing just to annoy resetti
