at a king of fighters 98 tornament,
it was a really close battle between my apponent and i,
the fight went down to the last fighter for both of us,
i think they did a fireball, which i rolled through with ralf,
and performed his grab throw.
i jumped off the seat, with my arms raised high in victory celebration,
only for the throw animation to finish, and my apponent having 1 pixel of energy left.
but by the time i sat back down and had the joystick in my hands,
they had already killed me with a combo.

remember it's not over till the announcer shouts "WINNER!"

What could be more embarrasing than actually liking and finishing Rise of the Robots back then? >_<

There's a reason why I don't play Halo 2 online.
Why retro? Because you never forget your first love.

The first time I tried out an f1 racer in the arcades when I was a little kid, I sat in the cockpit, started the game, and then waited for the countdown to finish so I could start racing.

'Such a long countdown,' I thought to myself. I tried turning the steering wheel, but nothing happened, so I continued to wait.

Of course, then the countdown finished, and a big GAME OVER appeared, at which point, the bigger kid who it turned out had been watching me the whole time, sneered and said, 'You're supposed to push the pedal.'

I felt like such a dope. :oops:

i think it has to be when i was about 14 or so, playing Nemesis for the first time and not getting the concept of power-ups... two games later and the ten year old watching me explained it. i'm still in therapy.

my most embarassing moment was being caught by my mother whilst masturbating ... i think i was playing Way of the Exploding Fist at the time (but definately wasn't thinking of hard men in pajama's)

Wow. Suddenly I feel better about my so-called embarrassing moment.

Way of the Exploding Fist. It's just perfect. :lol:

The first time my mate played Ridge Racer in the arcade he couldn't get off the start line, we could see his rev counter trying to go up but the car wouldn't move, so we're looking around trying to find some gear stick or other, anyway the time ran out and it turns out he'd been pressing the accelerator and brake at the same time.

For myself it was back at college, we had a Robocop arcade machine in the common room and I used to play it quite a lot, I went in one day and the place was empty, so I started playing and it seemed like they'd turned the sound up on the game, so I shouted out "f*cking hell, that's loud", I then looked round to see that the common room wasn't empty but there was one hell of a fit bird sat at the other end of the room, felt like a right tw*t.
Splink!

Well, at least you weren't masturbating.

I was watching a friend play Horace and the Spiders at his house on his Spectrum (it must have been about '83), and when he had one life (Serum) left I shouted "Watch out, you only have one sperm left!". :oops:
