Have you ever used something you learned in a video game in real life?

I run like Sonic, it won me a gold medal
No, but I almost crashed my car one time after I played Sleeping Dogs all weekend then left to go to the store and started driving in the wrong lane.
>no mention of Garry's mod
>no mention of programming or engineering
No, /pol/ didn't need to tell me that. Only these thieving bastards did.
Do people usually tell apart left from right by taking note of which side their writing hang is on? Because this is what I do and I'm not sure if I'm doing this right or I'm retarded.
Final Fantasy taught me roman numerals when I was in grade school.
I started Japanese in Uni this past week and knew a little bit from various games and anime.
>Ichi and Ni
>Aku from Samurai Jack
>I hate my life
I learned about interior design from seeing so many nice rooms in games and how to use the power of my dick on women from Persona 4.
I fucking know right is my right and left is my left subconsciously so I don't look like an idiot trying to figure it out.
>vocab time in elementary school
>teacher asks if anyone knows what muddle means
>raise hand and say confused
>good job anon that's correct
>thanks final fantasy
I learned how to ask out girls from persona 4. I call her and ask her if shes free on the weekend. "Carly-senpai are you free on saturday? Im wondering if you want to go to a movie with me?" No one ever says yes but at least im asking.
I learned by left and right thought GTA3 cheatcodes
When I am trying to tell left from right I usually get into the metal state that I'm about to write something down. I don't actually move my hand or make any motion that I'm about to write. I don't know how to explain this shit.

How to swim - Super Mario 64
Not that shitty swimming style when you hold the A button.
You should ask her to go to the mall next time. Girls like the mall, if anything
bring her by the entertainment section.You'll know what to do.
A lot of the random fucking historical information I learned from Ass Creed came in handy in history class.
I played Persona 4. It doesn't help at all and is nothing like real life. Last time I asked out a girl last week and she said yes, but the whole time before I thought she was gonna say no because I didn't know if my hair looked nice and the entire time my heart was racing harder than when I had a gun pointed at me.
Because of Runescape, I knew steel was made by adding carbon to iron.

I've learned how to properly disarm and throw people around, thank you Lugaru and Sleeping Dogs
I've learned how to properly shoot animals and never to go after the headshot, thank you Cabela's pro hunting or whatever name it was.
I've learned how to be a complete dick, be in charge and get away with everything, thank you SS13
Yeah, I do the same thing.
I remember in P4, you get a Watermelon at the end of Summer and he calls everyone to come over and eat it, so I bought one and called my friends over to come and eat some watermelon too.
They didn't come but at least I'm asking.
And I had a whole Watermelon to myself.
What the fuck? Are you all fucked in the head or something? This is basic orientation. Do you just never have any idea where you are in the world? Are you constantly on drugs?
Not any game in particular, but I learned to read really well from reading so many game manuals and strategy guides

When I was little the teacher asked the class if they knew were wool came from. I was the only one who raised their hand and said, "You shear sheep for wool."
I learned fluid English from playing videogames. My parents and teachers were surprised when I was a kid and managed to read semi-complex English shit, and some are still surprised now.
I'm a spic so English isnt my first language. Ese.
>not knowing "Baa Baa Black Sheep"
Were you 3 or something?
I learned that any woman that likes Dark Souls or Metal Gear Solid is either fat or a lesbian.

I just used what I learned and prepared tons of evidence before the case started. Nitpicked the fuck out of his and his witnesses statements found contradictions, thanks to those contradictions and evidence I unleashed a butt armageddon of such proportions that the guy's lawyer threw the towel to avoid further humiliation.
>Teacher gave us a riddle one day at the end of class

what the fuck though for real. seems so weird when people can't tell lefts and rights. i told some of my other housemates about it and they told me that it's a type of dyslexia.
>that same asperger's friend says that OOT taught him to read
I don't know how he learned to read if he couldn't fucking find his way out of a room in dark souls
I learned how to go fast from Tribes Ascend. And I learned about a bunch of shit from the MGS games when I was younger. Like military shit and advanced technology.
and other ching chong waifu simulators
>Tell people whatever they want to hear even if it's bad to advance relationships

I was supposed to be a wizard /v/ why did it have to turn out like this?
>Assassin's Creed was released in 2007
I need to actually try this. But then there's the fact of trying to get a girl to like me in the first place, which I'm bad at... I can get them to go on dates with me because I'm apparently cute, but I'm so socially awkward and bad at talking to people it never goes to a third date. I wonder if I dress up as human Teddie for the next Naka-kon that grills will like it? My female friend even told me that I have the exact same body type and face shape.
People keep saying I should be a doctor but I just keep spouting bullshit that sounds legit.
I guess I should be a politician instead.
Well you've already completed step 1: Be born lucky. So long as you don't go full spaghetti everything should work out. To keep calm just play the game like everyone's expendable, and that more bitches would just be on the way. That might even be the case.
Worst case scenario just start the Female Otaku Friend route
or is she a landwhale? You may want to pick your battles in that case.
Anon. Give us better descriptions of what happened. Paint a picture for us. Paint a visual novel for us. Also actually tell us what you were going to get sued for, this is an anonymous imageboard for fucks' sake.
EVE Online taught me how to be calm when everyone freaks the fuck out. When shit is at stake and trouble shows up people tend to panic very fast, which renders them pretty much ineffective.
Also does someone remember the First Aid class in America's Army to unlock the Medic? I actually learned a bit by doing that and had no problems later when I had to take a First Aid class IRL
ofc it didn't teach me how to bandage stuff, but things like how long can a brain go without oxygen before irreversible damage occurs and the theory for treating trauma and shock was quite nice to have
This is actually really true. When my brother got cancer, you could see it stretching his skin on his stomach from the inside. Three doctors blew it off as a hemorrhoid or something like that. Turns out because of that, it got really worse and turned out to be a rare as fuck kind of cancer. He's fine now though, but he has to drink like 8 glasses of water a day and can't eat anything with high fiber. He's suing two of the doctors now.
TLDR: Doctors talk bullshit and my brother's life got fucked because of it

I'm was an autist who couldn't hold a conversation to save his life. Ace Attorney taught me how to pick apart people's statements and kind of "use what they say against them" (to continue the conversation, of course).
Do this long enough and shit gets weird. People eventually get comfortable enough with you to unpack their weird ass baggage. They'll also expect you to side with them when drama ensues-extremely awkward if you've been playing multiple sides
She has a boyfriend, and it's more of a thing that she's like a cute little sister to me. Not really gonna go for that. I really just want a girlfriend that likes Dark Souls and MGS and is cute (like cute, not fucking supermodel hot, I don't find that as attractive for some reason) and for her to be nice, if not bro tier. She's a total casual when it comes to games. Is it bad that I want a girlfriend based on if she likes my two favorite things? Is it asking for too much?
>completed step 1: Be born lucky
Well that's a relief
>So long as you don't go full spaghetti
Same guy you replied to, similar thing happened to my friend's grandmother, she'd fallen down the stairs in her house and hit her head. The doctors didn't bother giving her a head-scan and because of the bruising on her legs being so bad from the drop, she couldn't get out of bed. Few weeks later, she died of a brain haemorrhage and malnourishment, because the nurses had also neglected to feed her. Now they're taking it to a tribunal and hopefully court. I'm just glad my own grandmother got semi-decent treatment when her aorta fucked up. Although about a week after her surgery, they started using the keyhole method all over. Instead of a little scar, they pulled her ribcage open, so she got a fuckhuge one from neck to navel.
you find a boyfriend? ;3
>nobody has jokingly said "run like sanic" yet
CQCed my gf in submission yesterday when we got in a fight about best Snake, she likes
I have no idea how to reply to that, I'm not good with these things. If it's any consolation, my grandfather died last week.
I want nice thighs I can grip onto on a girl while I kiss her and rub her breast with my other hand. I don't find guys attractive though either. The hard part though is I'm so awkward I get all worked up thinking about asking a girl out, and if I actually force myself to, my heart will be pounding, and I won't even make it to a second date.
>never fired a gun in my life

I think vidya must be the answer. I don't know what else would have gave me shootan skillzzz.
I'm convinced Gran Turismo has made me a better driver, probably anybody with a few hours of gameplay improves a lot. Also I can finally understand some of the jargon used
Maps and compasses.
I'm my family/friends' guide for that shit. What's so complicated about maps or compasses, seriously?
I can drive and look at the GPS and calculate a distance easy, don't know wy my mother or my buddies have a hard time doing this.
>She's like a cute little sister to me
Alright scratch what I said before. You were born really fucking lucky. If you /tg/ at all you can sometimes meet qt3.14's who into Vidya through tabletop groups, though the majority are still landwhales. Still, it's a better chance than sorting through any potential SJW for vidya groups and Weebs from any anime stuff. I guess it's because the groups are more niche and private and not the kinda stuff people would flock to?
The appropriate reply would be 'fuck doctors'. Sorry if that made you uncomfortable though, as well as about your grandfather.
England m8, land of shitty free healthcare and useless tribunals for everything.
This. I used to do that until I noticed everybody will just use you to dump their trash on you and expect you to be there for everything. Just you wait until you need the favor back and find yourself helpless.
B-but Anon, bros aren't able to turn me down, have tits, and I'm not trying to make them like me, they just do.
Come on asshole, just think of it like a "that part" of a game. You have to go through with it so man up and just do it.You can do anything in the god damn world anon, just force yourself to do it, force past your barriers and ignore yourself. Don;t let yourself keep you back.
Sometimes when people reminisce with me, I start telling them random bullshit either about our friendships or about movies, like Rose and Para-Medic, respectively. I do this very rarely though, and it doesn't help me in life at all
I play the Dungeons & Dragons game that my dad kept from when he was in college with a bunch of my bros. Though my level 34 half elf just died from a fireball last week.
Papers were thrown.But I have no idea how to get into meeting people up to play it, especially since I'd have to learn all the new rules and shit. And I don't have nearly enough money or patience for card games or Warhammer.
Started Japanese Philosophy in uni, and I already know all the Shinto myth shit from P4, Okami, and Muramasa. But we don't really cover the names of gods and shit, I don't think
I've had lots of friends tell me the same thing, I'm just to awkward for that shit.
>implying you'll be ridiculed
I promise you the average American will love you just for being exactly what you just stated. I mean it, we like foreigners a lot more than the everyone thinks we do.
We just don't like the Native Americans.
Shit, I can't even play video games anymore. When I'm alone I spend the majority of my free time browsing youtube futilely for something worth watching and refreshing the same 3 boards on 4chan that I don't even like anymore, all while gripped by the horrible sense that I'm running out of time and this awful anxiety about my job.
I haven't been to work in three days and I have been awake for 34 hours now. It is taking everything in my powers to not just lay down on my couch and cry myself to sleep before my shift begins today.
> I'm just to awkward for that shit.
Only you think that. Go look in a fucking mirror anon, see yourself there and take a good long as fuck look. Because that's all you've got at the end of the day, yourself. You are a fucking king anon, the god damn best thing in the world, you're fucking amazing. Don't get embarrassed nigga, you are all you've got; so strut your shit.
Can't be worse than mangled half-Scottish/half-Yorkshire/half-Notts mongrel speak.
Well, the few Americans I've met personally have been pretty cool. If I was going to move, which would be the best state?
If you want to move to America, you absolutely have to move to the Last Frontier, a.k.a. Alaska. It is the freest state in a union of free states.

I'll check it out, but I doubt anyone around my area will be into it, especially when I'm in suburban north west Kansas of all places. Add on to the chance a girl will like it.
You've got a nice way with words. I guess that's a better way to look at it. I'll try to remember what you told me next time I see a girl I think is cute.
Why can't girls be as bro tier as the guys on here?
I learned certain words and the way they were used based on their context, mainly RPG's. I learned more about language and grammar from games than in school. Though senior year I finally grasped using "an" before certain words/letters. RPG's also taught me how to be resourceful with what I have.
>Why can't girls be as bro tier as the guys on here?
Because I'm the best damn thing the worlds ever seen.
I'd heard the South was pretty nice, one of my father's old friends moved there himself.
>Easy access to guns and weed with no taxman reaming me senseless
Sounds like paradise. They have much call for useless post-graduates out there?
Are you a girl that looks like the one in pic related but less slutty? If not, you ain't the best thing we've seen.
Fire Emblem taught me the word Myrmidon
>mfw it came up in a 6th grade spelling test
>mfw absolutely nobody except me and a friend knew what the fuck
>Why can't girls be as bro tier as the guys on here?
You don't get to be bro-tier without seeing some shit.
Bottom line to confidence is believing in yourself and others will too.
Nope, I'm just a hype ass dude who's living the dream.
Dude, just remember that there's guys on 4chan that share the same feels as you. I felt the same way after I realized my dad and brother had cancer, and my best friend's dad died in the same month. I felt helpless, and I was 14 at the time. You got this man. Just fuck your husband before you go and you got this.
>Why can't I ________?
Practice practice practice practice.
It won't be overnight.
It'll probably suck taking such a long time.
But with enough practice, you git gud, git better, and can do anything.
I guess problem is now finding the time to get better at certain things.....
We got a call for every fucking one up here. Turns out most lower Americans can't handle the winters, so we have a constant need for anyone who can do anything reasonably skillful. Even if you're a worthless dropout you can still make $12/hour full time with benefits, and that's only if you don't want to take a drug test. You'd probably have smooth sailing with your fancy degree.
>Why can't girls be as bro tier as the guys on here?
They can be, they're called tomboys. Find women who were the youngest siblings with nothing but older brothers. They're great people. Even better if they're hot and they know it.
With a name like Haydn people normally assume I'm Irish, but that's good I suppose. Not being a chav is difficult though, living in the arsehole of the East Midlands.
Sorry, is Kansas not in the South? I haven't read a map of the States in a long time and most of what I know about Kansas is from the Wizard of Oz.
I love winter, it's settled then. Time to ship the fuck out of here as soon as possible.
>Being this asian
I appreciate your support in my time of trouble, Panty. I don't have a father, but I can't imagine how I would feel if my little brother's life was threatened by something like that. I'm glad that you got through it. I just moved across the country to be with my husband, and a few weeks later my family tells me that my little bro was in a fucking hospital. Just developed schizophrenia, I guess. Fuck me, I was terrified. I still am. I still feel like I'm going to get some horrible call any day. My brother hurt himself, my mom, my grandpa has an accident or his heart gives out or whatever horrors this world could dream up for me. 3000 miles away. I feel like I abandoned them.
I'll do my best brother, keep it real.
Like I said, we welcome you with open arms. Hell, we hire fucking Russians and Bulgarians to fill in open positions in the summer, that is how desperate we are for people here. Just remember, our winters are -50F. Pack your coat.
>Sorry, is Kansas not in the South? I haven't read a map of the States in a long time and most of what I know about Kansas is from the Wizard of Oz.
I think Kansas is considered Midwest. I've never been there so I don't know, but I assume it's all deserty shit like in Courage the Cowardly Dog.
Nah nigger, you didn't abandoned them. You just went to be with the dude you loved. Bad things are going to happen of course, you just need to realize this. It's not like it's your fault, you had no idea that any of that was going to happen. Just realize that whatever is going to happen, that you musn't mourn about it, they wouldn't want that. You must cherish the time you spent with them, as it will always mean more than anything else.
Nothing much to be totally honest, just the generic alchoholic parent, the sane one left, a couple dead niche family members. It's not that bad compared to other people really.
One more thing: fuck the feds, and fuck the oil companies. The feds make our cost of living higher because they won't let ships stop here before they stop in California. This is why we have solidarity with Hawaii, as they suffer a similar fate. Fuck the oil companies because they're running a massive propaganda campaign to convince us to vote for lower taxes on oil sales to them, but fuck 'em, they're gonna pay up and like it.
Oh yeah, once you become a citizen, you get free money every year. Every Alaskan citizen is entitled to a yearly dividend based on our tax revenue. It varies, but has been as low as 600 dollars and as high as 2,300. Free money! Happy trails britfriend.
Fairly certain I can mentally process shit twice as fast as most people I know thanks to my early days of Tetris. Or at least the myriad of situations that gaming has thrown me into.
Also, LoZ:MM has me counting to 10 seconds without a stopwatch with fair accuracy. Came in handy in ALBW Rupee Rush.
I've never played Demon's Souls and have meant to as soon as I find it.
D-does your gf have any cute friends with blue hair...?
You're right. Thanks for listening, stranger. You know, I always thought that people who got homesick were silly. My family was insane, and I knew I'd be happier to live my own life away from them. I am happier.
But I really miss them. I miss my little brother more than anything.
I lived an above middle, below upper class life with a good family. My brother got into some trouble with drugs and such for a small time, and I used to be a socially awkward fuck, but all of it let me become a better person because I want a good life for me and everyone around me.
>Not realizing women don't have any real opinions of their own and are merely templates that we etch our own likes and dislikes upon.
Let me guess, she heard you mention how pleb Dark Souls was, and suddenly her own opinion shaped accordingly.
Yeah, only good convention in north west Kansas.
See if there's any way to take your husband with you to see him. It would mean a lot more to you if you could spend a little more time with him.
Not sure if this counts:
I was playing Fire Emblem 7 in high school, and I recruited Serra. Naturally, I thought she was kind of a bitch.
As her support with Erk leveled up, though, I began to see her true colors. She actually DOES like him! It made me reconsider certain other female characters, particularly from anime. My eyes had been opened to the world of the tsundere.
It was then that I realized what the cute weeaboo grill in my chemistry class ACTUALLY meant by "don't get the wrong idea" and "it's not like I'm into you or anything".
Two, actually, but one's a dude and the other's a lesbian.
>It was then that I realized what the cute weeaboo grill in my chemistry class ACTUALLY meant by "don't get the wrong idea" and "it's not like I'm into you or anything".
That's actually pretty mediocre and I'm glad. You seem like a bro and I wouldn't want you to have that bad of a life.
Not exactly, but playing F-Zero X for untold hours one night came in handy the next day when I was on the freeway.
Dude pulling a trailer with a bunch of 2x4's wrecked in the right lane in front of me, though I was in the far-left lane. 2x4's went flying...right at me. Thanks to the reaction time I still had going from F-Z X, I was able to dodge each and every one of those wooden missiles without wrecking my own car.
Dude behind me wasn't so lucky...
Obviously he had played South Park Rally on the N64 the night before instead.
>being this clueless about how real life works
This isn't edgy faggotry, it's real life anon. Just pay attention to how women inevitably start to become a whole lot like the guy they're dating. They end up liking the music he likes, the vidja he likes, the movies, etc. Or if you meet a girl who already likes the things you like, chances are her ex was a lot like you and imprinted his own views on her. It's like a biological thing; a beneficial trait that makes us like them more, ensuring the species and all that bull.
And here I thought I was the only one. I learned English from playing so much Pokemon up until I turned 12. Then I started playing other things too and my hearing and oral English also got better. I speak much better English than most of my former and current teachers. It's my second language, Portuguese is my first one.
It isn't just women, you silly billy. Anyone that looks up to you will eventually start adopting your traits. It is the most noticeable in people you are extremely close to, like young siblings and partners.
Well, if a woman doesn't imprint upon you and start to adopt some of your traits, you're either a hopeless beta she doesn't feel comfortable following or she's getting her influences from somewhere else, if you know what I mean.
Which, come to think of it, are probably the same thing.
but anon, that's how you forge an unbreakable relationship!
you're nearing Social Level Max, don't give up now!
also no cheating. girls are smarter then the average waifu AI. also it's a dick move.
Finding a girl whose taste is anywhere near as patrician as mine was a one-in-a-million chance already. I haven't met anyone else who sounds like what you're looking for.
Totally up for a threesome though if you're cute
I drive a 5 speed, 2 wheel drive S10, its very light and obviously its RWD
First winter having it.
I live in Illinois where when it snows, it fucking snows.
Heavy snowfall, ambient temps were so cold this year that salt did not melt the snow so everywhere you were driving on 2-3 inches of unplowed snow
I play a lot of driving sims, and I especially like rally racing ones.
I have a G27 racing wheel, and I played GT5 and 6 a lot.
Its a stretch to say that it helped my driving out a lot, because driving in that sort of weather is all about anticipation of the other drivers, it still felt familiar and I was as comfortable enough driving it.
Like you can feel your car starting to fishtail and slip away and other small things like that. Its really weird.
I learned about capitalization in 1st/2nd grade because I played some RPG I can't remember the name of, and I noticed how much my all-caps name clashed with all the other names of characters and places. It triggered my autism and after a bit I deleted my save and made a new one with only the first letter in my name capitalized.
Also I picked up a habit of memorizing and predicting where people are when I lose sight of them from playing MGS, and Pokémon helped me learn a lot of words from reading move names/descriptions then using them in battle and seeing their effects to use as a context clue.
I actually want to move there when I'm older. I've read 40% of women there have D size boobs are above and I've heard that there's a lot of hot girls there. Is that true? And how popular are games there?
There is a decent amount of attractive girls.
I can't speak for the popularity of games, but they're very, very expensive. AAA console games launch with triple-digit prices.
Ignore any shitposter who quotes the minimum wage.
>Learning a useless language like English
>You're speaking English
Very creative, haven't seen before. 4/10
How many girls do you see with dyed hair? And I rarely ever buy newly released AAA titles unless it's certain stuff like Dark Souls 2. I can always make Steam think I'm in America like my buddy that lives there did.
>Any good gaming companies there? I want to get into game design and development
Literally none. Team Bondi is ded.
It is pretty much impossible to get a job in any entertainment industry.
>Portuguese is my first one.
Just passing by when I noticed this. Man, you guys are going to be really confused when this is done. Can't wait for the endless bursts of "WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU DO TO OUR LANGUAGE, JAPAN".
Also, I didn't learn moonrunes from vidya, but it damn well helped.
I was once hit at a stop light by a sleeping driver going about 50. The light had just turned green and a semi was in front of me, the impact flung my car clear through the intersection. If not for years of Out Run as a child, I'd have hit that semi and probably been hurt or killed. Instead, I swerved and got out of it with out a single injury.
I learned the limits of how more energy i have during the day through playing
league of legends
I notice I get really tired around 8pm, and my reflexes and ability to multitask decrease.
Because of this, I've started doing important shit early, instead of putting it off.
It's made a world of a difference.
Welp. Do I want to possibly find the girl of my dreams, or possibly get into my dreams job...?
I don't know German sorry.
Also, you don't need English to get anywhere today. For example, I'm climbing the ladder at an Auto Shop in my town and I didn't need to learn English to do it.
The Mother series taught me how to play piano, guitar, and banjo
I was so enthralled with the soundtracks that I wanted to learn to play music. The first song I ever played was the main theme from Mother 1. The first song I learned on guitar was Something by The Beatles and then the Love Theme from Mother 3. I figured out the banjo a year later by playing the store song.
Becoming a musician, and later a songwriter, has helped me mature as a person. Everyone should play at least one instrument. Put your finger workin vidya skills to use.
Arma taught me how to use EVCs and other military maps.
I did learn something from Sonic though,
HOW TO B WAY PAST KEWL
You can practice things that are low energy and don't require much physical exertion.
For me, it was improving my art.
I just don't have the time to do so any more.

>Is it bad that I want a girlfriend based on if she likes my two favorite things?
No, it's very common to find girls (or whatever sex based on your orientation) that share your interests attractive.

Civ games taught me that 99.99% of all major nations are run by selfish, conniving fucks who fuck over others to secure themselves. Their leaders pretend to have the moral high ground even though the interests of their citizens and allies are completely secondary to that.
Reading Machiavelli when I got older just confirmed this. Why can't we be honest with each other and just get along? This world seems to be governed by fear and prejudice more than wisdom or integrity.

Why don't you tell us about your gluten-free vegan diet and why gun control is effective
I remember American doctors complaining about malpractice in their country, then later read a statistical report that "defensive medicine" barely makes up more than 1% of healthcare costs in the United States. That sounds like a lot, but over 50% is because their government doesn't allocate funds for Medicare properly and gives corrupt subsidies to private pharmaceutical and insurance corporations.
Of course, Americans tend to blame illegal immigrants and obesity more than their own political corruption.
Playing ArmA with various groups taught me the navigation skills I previously sucked really fucking badly at. Using topographical maps, a compass, and actually being able to figure out where the fuck you are, and where you should be going.

The people here are fucking dumb, only thing worth a damn are Heavy Seas and Flying Dog. But everybody's caught up on Natty Bo and that shit is fucking gross. Baltimorians are so proud of nothing.
has this aged well? I've never into age of empires or rts in general, have recently played starcraft 1 and 2 and age of mythology, can I into AOE?
my interest in rts was sparked by
