The First Time You Died
« 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
