Let’s face it, we’ve all been there: we’d become sick of playing a game how it was supposed to be played, so we decided to try out our own ridiculous method of killing time, though if anyone caught us spending our days this way, it’d be much to our embarrassment (especially if it’s our parents or loved ones).

Perhaps our younger, more desperate selves heard about a way to catch an eyeful of the female form, or maybe the games secretly allowed us to unleash our inner sadists, but the end result was always the same: we’d end up looking back on these moments and monumentally cringing.

Whether appropriating a game in a way other players can’t stand, being completely outwitted and shocked by a classic gaming moment, or letting our more basic instincts get the better of us, these are 10 things most gamers worth their salt have experienced at least once, though perhaps won’t eagerly talk about for fear of mockery from their friends.

Did we miss any classically embarrassing things you’ve done as a gamer over the years? Or will you stand up tall and proclaim your pride in any of the feats we’ve listed? Let us know in the comments!
