Having to blow into the cartridge to get the game to work.
Watching your mate's screen so you could kill them on multi-player.
Hunting around the house for batteries to power the Gameboy.
Locking the butler in Tomb Raider II in the fridge. Bonus points for timing it so his head came out the door.
Being able to hit the ball so hard on Adidas Power Soccer '98 that it sent the keeper flying into his own net.

What are some of your favourite video game memories? Ideally from your childhood, but Abdel can name something from last week if he wants.

Playing Pokemon Crystal all day on my Gameboy and playing various Pokemon games on my gameboy whilst driving home from the drive ins at night, having to use light from passing cars.

Oh that reminds me, I had a little light thing that you could stick into the gameboy for those situations. Backlighting was such a welcome addition to my video gaming life Funny

Harry Potter: Chamber of Secrets on PS2 was the game that pissed me off more than anything else. Fucking shit the missions were so hard sometimes. The worst one was when Harry and Ron had to escape from the Forbidden Forest, holy shit.

I remember blowing into cartridge. I don't do that anymore because that's a stupid way of trying to clean a cartridge. But when one wouldn't work right away yesterday at Dr. Clyde's house everyone was telling me to blow into it Funny

- Accidently tripping over controller cords and sometimes pulling the console out.

- Having to blow into the cartridge to get the game to work.

- Screen cheat as me we like to say lol Watching the other players screen so you could kill them on multi-player or beat them in a race.

- Hunting around the house for batteries to power the Gameboy.

- Deciding on what to delete on your memory card so you could make a new save. (N64)

- Getting money together to buy a new memory card. (N64)

- Unlocking new mini games without paying for them!!

- Looking after your Tamagotchi.
