    Default Stupidest thing you have done in a video game?

    Simple. What's the most stupid thing you have ever done in a video game? (Etc trade away your best Pokemon)

    Mine just happened... Which made me think of making a thread! Playing through paper mario and just got one of the best items in the game. Then I accidentally fed it to an NPC cause I clicked the wrong button :/

    The stupidest in my opinion, that I even continue doing to this day, is throwing a grenade (especially if it's sticky) against the wall right in front of me or right beside me.

    Also same with RPG's/Rocket Launchers. Oh hey lets blow these kids up. NOPE, somehow I shot the wall in front of me.

    I used my master ball on a level 5 weedle I named Tomo in Pokemon(Leaf Green). God, that is so stupid. Why did I do that? I wanted to use that ball to catch an Articuno!

    I got a letter... The name on the envelope said... Mary... my wife's name.

    In my first playthrough of OoT, I had 99 skulltulas and backtracked through all of the dungeons and searched everywhere for the 100th. I ignored the tree near Kakariko's entrance (I was certain that I already had the skulltula in that tree) when I went into the village one (in-game) night looking for any skulltulas I might've missed.

    You can guess my reaction when I realised that the final skulltula was the one in the tree I thought I had already collected.

    I can't choose between these.

    Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker: It wasn't until I was searching for the third dungeon when I found out you could use the wind sail to move across the sea faster. Traveling from island to island took way too long. XD

    Paper Mario: During my first and second playthroughs, I didn't know you could negate some damage Mario takes by pressing A the moment an enemy hits him. It didn't make the game impossible to beat, but boy, did it make me feel silly discovering it later on. I should've paid closer attention to the tutorials.

    Pokemon Yellow: I sent the starter Pikachu to another version and evolved him! I was curious to see what would happen, but I was so distraught he no longer followed me as a Raichu, I restarted the game to get another Yellow Pikachu, even though I had all 151 Pokedex entries. (I didn't lose any Pokemon, though. I put all the Pokemon onto Stadium 1 beforehand)

    Who is this git?

    Summoning a PORTAL in a puzzle in Scribblenauts, thinking it would summon a doorway to the STARITE. It summoned CTHULHU, and I died trying to kill him with a CHAINSAW...

    My death trying to Blaster a Cymul to dust during SSBB:TSE...

    I have many more...but I'm not saying them...

    I was a total noob when I played Diamond. I killed Mesprit, AND saved afterwards, went up to the Spear Pillar at random times long after I beat the game "just in case," would listen to Pokemon's cries backwards for "clues," etc. I was an idiot.

    In Skyrim, I hit Aela with a lightning spell trying to help kill the giant you see them fighting on the road to Whiterun. ALL the Companions became hostile and tried to murder me, even the ones inside the city.

    Right now I can only think of a Pokemon example. Back in the old generation games I would try to give a Pokemon of mine something like a potion when they did not need it. I would get a message saying "It has no effect". In my mind I would be happy reading that because I thought it meant that the item did not make the Pokemon suffer from side-effects of any kind and thought it would be safe to use it on the rest of my team. I have no idea how many times I did that but I guess I learned eventually. Sometimes when I make that mistake now I just chuckle to myself on how much time I wasted doing that.

    Attacking a giant in Skyrim even though I was only level 3.

    In TF2, I tried to sap a sentry.

    ...but I forgot to disguise myself.
