Devilish Things We’ve All Tried in Videogames

By this, I mean not playing the game properly and completely messing about. Whether it be that you’re bored and arsing around is more amusing, than the actual game or whether you just want to test the limits of the game. I think we can all agree, that videogame devilment can be a hell of a lot of fun. (The King of Cheese has returned)

Before I get stuck into that, I’d like to point out that this post was originally, going to be about the evil things we all do in videogames. But that list quickly became really disturbing and sounded very much like videogame sadism. So, I had to downgrade to devilment (really didn’t fancy getting kick off WordPress, for describing the twisted things that can be done in videogame. Even though we’ve all done them). However, videogame devilment is just as funny, so without further delay, I give to you.

The Devilish Things We Have All Done in Videogames

1-Using Your Teammates for Target Practice:
We’ve all been on incredibly boring missions or gotten a little curious and decided to test out weapons on your computerised teammates. Most of the time, this has absolutely no effect on your oblivious non-reactive teammates. But if you’re lucky, sometimes the game turns against you and fights back. Making that boring mission, a hell of a lot more interesting.

I think it’s safe to say, that anyone who has ever played Sims has done this. From trapping sims in rooms and starving them, to not letting the sims out of the pool. We’ve all been a little cruel to the sims and probably in more creative ways than I described. But in everyone’s defence, the game makes it hard not to mistreat the sims, even just a little and almost encourages at times. Like don’t create a giant sim eating cow-plant in your game, if you don’t want me to feed a sim or 2 to it every so often.

3-Driving on The Sidewalk:
Because why drive responsibly in a videogame, when driving like a maniac and chasing pedestrians is so much better. Best not to drive like that in real life, though. It’d probably end in a very painful death.

4-Being the World’s Worse Bodyguard:
I’m yet to meet someone who actually likes escort missions. They are beyond frustrating, especially when the person your meant to guard, is basically walking into bullets and seems to have some sort of dead wish. So, like the patient and caring gamers we are, we do whatever it takes to end the misery that is an escort mission. Even if that involves running off and leaving the lamb to the wolves or taking care of them ourselves.

This one is more to do with a Nintendo game, that involves farming and a very annoying mayor. So, annoying in fact, that you’ve probably thrown a chicken or 2 at him in disgust, of his pushy passive aggressive manner. Scary thing is the chicken actually like it and displays a little love heart above its head every time you throw it. If that isn’t encouragement to throw Nintendo chickens, I don’t know what is.

6-Playing with The Less Experienced Players:
It can be very tempting to help a new player, greatly increase their death toll. However, as tempting as that is, there is something more entertaining that we’ve all done to less experienced players. Which is shooting in their direction without aiming, just to watch them get all excited and flap madly about, as they try to grasp the game’s controls. (Wow, that one is also sort of cruel as well as devilish)

7-Death from Above: 
Jumping into another player from high up, is probably a dirty move. But we’ve all at least tried it once, if only to see if it actually works. (I know I’ve tried it a few times in Call of Duty. Could never ace the landing, though.)

thumbnail_952b4443-5b0e-41b8-bce2-b6b0523090b78-Teasing Zombies:
Fighting off Zombies is a lot of fun, but some times teasing the zombies can be more entertaining, than killing them. From starting a massive game of zombie tag, to taunting zombies and laughing your little socks off at the state of a zombie trying to run. Teasing videogame zombies can be incredibly fun and provide you with a lot of laughs.

9-Extreme Overkill:
Sometimes, you just have to throw a grenade at that weak ass monster. You could have probably destroyed it with a punch, but that wouldn’t be as satisfying. Sometimes, if haven’t caused several computerised fires or explosions, we’re just not playing the game hard enough.

10- Playing Dead:
Probably one of the more devilish things you can do when playing a first-person shooter videogame, against other players. Although most wouldn’t admit it, there has been times were we’ve all suddenly laid down and stop moving, to trick the other player into thinking you’ve died. Whether it be that you don’t want to add yet another death to your tally or as a dirty tactic, to take the other player by surprise. It’s incredibly devilish and annoys the hell out of other players, but we’ve all done it anyway.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this list. I haven’t done a random list post in a while, so this post might seem a bit out of the blue to newer readers. But it’s just one the things to expect from this blog (as well as art and reviews). These lists are just something to give everyone a bit of a giggle and challenge my drawing skills a bit more.

Thanks for reading and if you ever want to see me make a post like this about something in particular. Leave it in the comments below and I’ll try my best to make that post happen.

  1. I honestly find myself wondering what the original post was like lol 😂😂😂
    But this was great and so incredibly relatable. The funniest thing I ever saw in a videogame was a friend of mine comitting suicide in a 10 minute deathmatch of call of Duty as much as he could. We were having a particularly nasty online day, and in the end we decided to just have fun. I think that in the end he killed himself about 65 times in one match. And boy did I laugh at his antics.
    Really loved this post, it brought back some great memories 😂😂

    • Thanks for the kind words 🙂 I’m glad you loved it 😀
      Haha the original post was so much more disturbing. There was alot of the more twisted things you can do in, red dead redemption and grand theft auto on it. So you could probably guess how bad it was lol 😀

      Haha, that sounds hilarious. I’ve thrown myself of the side in Call of Duty, a few times. So I can only imagine how funny that would be, if it happened 65 times hehe 😀

  2. I always went for self-destruction in Golden Eye in multiplayer mode. Plant a whole bunch of mines, wait for the opponent to close in and blow the room sky-high. Really fun though not exactly the point of the game.
