Obviously, the point of video games is to get good enough at them to not get your ass handed to you by 11-year-olds online.
But some of the most fun I've had while gaming has been when I just get completely owned myself.
For example, when I tried really hard to save a lady from her kidnapper in Red Dead Redemption 2 and somehow made things...potentially worse?
So that got me thinking, have you ever done something so spectacularly dumb in a video game you just had to laugh at yourself?
Did a Like-Like steal your Zora tunic in Ocarina of Time and you didn't realize you had to kill it to get it back? (Happened to me.)
Or did you suck so much in your first World of Warcraft raid that your party left you in the dungeon to continually die and respawn forever? (Also, me.)
Have ever got so drunk while playing Mario Kart that you did an entire lap before realizing you were going the wrong way? (It is, indeed, I.)
Please tell me I'm not the only "gamer" who is also sometimes bad at video games. Tell us about your funniest, most excruciating video game fail story in the comments below and your response could be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community post!
