Title: The First Time You Died
Post by: DraconicDescendant on August 31, 2008, 07:22:59 pm
I HAZ MAKD AN TOPK

Anyway, I just recalled the first time I ever died in a videogame. It was sometime around the early-mid 90's in a Southern California hotel room. I was playing Super Mario World on the hotel tv, with that odd multi-console controller that they have. I remember being killed by that Monty Mole that pops out of the wall in the second level of the first world, I was like two or something so I didn't have much of a strategy to get around it, so it killed me again, and again, then I got a game over. It's not like Yoshi was any help.

So, who else wants to share the story of their first demise?

"Why was the candle in the first Zelda game also able to hurt you?" is the earliest videogame question I remember (I having been killed by it moments prior), but it was that stupid underwater part of Chemical Plant from Sonic 2 that I remember killing me first.

Dragon Warrior (NES):  Almost killed the Green Dragon, but missed with the attack that would've ended him.  Then he breathed fire on me, and all went red....

Oh wow, let me see.  Hmm, I remember a LONG time ago my cousin
and I played Super Mario a lot.  I know I didn't die first in the first few levels,
I think I actually died on Bowser's fire breath in the first castle.  My fate was
forever sealed to fight with bowser forever.

Random suggestion, but can this also include favorite videogame(ing) moments from one's experience?

I don't recall there being a thread for something like that and I lack compulsion to create it if I can just use this. :P

My first loss in Pokemon Blue was against a friggin' Diglett; pushed my luck a little too far during training. >_<

Especially when you run into a Dugtrio.... *shivers* >_<

Thankfully I learned how to deal with them when I got yellow. :P
Title: Re: The First Time You Died
Post by: desktopdoodlz on September 01, 2008, 03:12:30 pm
what was the average level that your pokemon are at that point in the game?, like... 20?..
dugtrios were like... level 35!!!
Title: Re: The First Time You Died
Post by: Dagnarok on September 01, 2008, 03:14:42 pm
They were level 29 and 32.

I was usually between 19-23 (I hate Misty's Starmie so much! >_<)  Thankfully having a bike and a Pokemon Center nearby made training a little easier. XD

All you need was either Bulbasaur, Squirtle, or a Nidoran, and problem solved. ;D  I normally use a Nidoran for Brock.
Title: Re: The First Time You Died
Post by: dsk on September 02, 2008, 05:46:08 pm
Squirtle... anyone? Rock's weakness to water...?

In yellow, I was forced to train up a butterfree for confusion.

Again, Nidoran with DoubleKick.  But I like having a Butterfree. ^_^

I'm always underleveled in everything ever .-.

But my first 'death' was in Myst. I gave Achenar the last blue page DX

First death in any video game ever was the boss at the end of zone 1,act 2 in Sonic 3.  First time in Pokemon Blue was against Misty.  I hate Starmie >:(   I thought lvl 19 would be high enough.....but no Pikachu still died. (My starter was Squirtle).  From Her on I kept my Pokemon at the same level and made sure to fight every trainer along the way for the rest of the game.

First time in IWBTG was the Q and then the first appleXD

Super Mario World, 1-1, Banzai Bill.
You never graduated from "SUTWLOSTTWLOFIYC" university?  DSK, I'm appalled.
: show
Swim under the whole level or Spinjump through the whole level or Fly if you can University


First time I died was on bowser in SMB.  The original, on the NES.
I wouldn't fight him.  I had no clue getting the axe would work.

Also, you can fight him and win bonus points if you use fireballs.  Whodathunkit?

Post by: dsk on September 19, 2008, 06:16:21 pm
Of course I did. If i finish SMW in 10 minutes these days, it's too much.

I was 2 at the time, and my dad kicked my ass at Mortal Kombat for the Genesis... Guess that'd be the first video game 'death' I remember, not too sure though.

The first time I died was when I started playing really difficult games like IWBTG, The Unfair Platformer, Jumper, and Super Mario Forever. I can't recall all of the arcade games.
Title: Re: The First Time You Died
Post by: Rad on September 28, 2008, 01:56:23 am
so you never died in any game ever, until you played iwbtg?
Title: Re: The First Time You Died
Post by: MR. BILL on September 28, 2008, 02:03:11 am
No, I was just exaggerating absolute frustration with a video game. I think at one point I actually welcomed death in the Metroid segment.

Might have been in a Pacman. (PC version) I still carry holy water with me just in case.

We all die one time or another

That time is now. You are dead.
