I just spent 20 minutes taking out all the Miis with non traditional faces from my Mii Plaza. I used to do this on my Wii also.

I suspend my disbelief for ghosts, turtles, dinosaurs and plumbers play golf, race karts, etc. but if a Mii pops up with a crudely conceived Mona Lisa or PAC-man face, it pulls me out of the experience.

In the 7 or 8 years I've had Miis on my consoles, handhelds and games, I've spent countless hours hunting the little freaks and deleting them.


...Does anyone else have peculiar habits in the world of gaming?

When playing Wind Waker, I'd meticulously clear every room of enemies when traversing a dungeon, even if I was just passing through that room. Especially the dungeon with Miniblins in them... brrrrrr.

Inventories.

Those things drive me mad unless everything is in its place. I simply can't have a disorganised inventory!

That too! Final Fantasy had me constantly mashing "sort inventory" - I like an orderly inventory.

I don't normally chase Achievements for the sake of chasing Achievements, unless there's only one left for that game- then it has to go, no matter what.

Heh, yeah. I've been known to spend an entire gaming session on the inventory screen of FFVII Laughing In fact i'd say it was the game that really started that little quirk of mine.

Back when the Pokémon games' items could only be sorted by means of the select button? The hours spent arranging everything into their correct places ("correct" as determined by me).

Pokémon has a lot of them, in fact. The entire fighting team must have all the HM moves, I must catch every new Pokémon I come across that cannot be evolved from one I already have...

I agree with the Pokemon one. I always had a certain order for the key items like the bike and fishing rods. When the later ones came with automatic sorting buttons, that was much appreciated - especially for the TM pocket.

I tend not to be that bad when it comes to gaming OCD, though, because I'm pretty impatient. For example, I'll start doing some sidequests or trying to fill out a bestiary, and then give up after about half an hour max because I know that if I go back to the game in a couple of years I won't remember anything - and I won't be looking at the bestiary to see if I got 100%. Most likely I'll just be restarting the game to play it again.

I just got a bit of graph paper as I decided I needed to re-pave/flower/tree my Animal Crossing village.

Then I told my sister about this, and she said she took a picture of her village on her phone and drew it out in Photoshop.

With me and bestiaries, it depends. Did I make a good start on the bestiary? Does it look like I'll ever get 100%? Or did I miss something out something that I can't go back to early on? Or (as happened with TTYD) do I keep losing to the boss if I try to scan it in-fight? If the latter two hold, the bestiary fills with holes pretty quickly.

If a game allows me to save at any point during game play then you can guarantee I'm doing it way more than I should be.

If I lose a life I tend to throw my controller up and catch it again, I don't know why I do it but it's very annoying. Also tend to click in analog triggers more often than necessary.

Great thread! There have been so many times when I do things like this.

The save point thing Jaster mentioned is something that affects me, but also games that let you save whenever you want, like Pokémon. Back when saving took a long time it'd be a disaster given the amount of times I'd save after making trivial amounts of progress.

I've recently become a lot better at not doing rituals inside games, but I was a lot worse before.

I've improved on the saving thing recently, now doing it only when I change location or when a boss is obviously coming.  Stops me from restarting every time if things don't go exactly my way, too.

I also used to always put the Pokémon with the lowest level at the front of my party, after every battle.  Now I only do that every route or so.

I always move both control sticks in this pathway whenever something is loading, sometimes the direction is inverted, but it's always that route.  Thinking about it I'm surprised at how few ocd's regarding gaming I have.

I do the save thing on games like resident evil, I will save at ever typewriter even though that's bad for your final score at the end.

I always hop over the start/finish line on Mario Kart. Anyone else?

I used to backflip onto a Star/Shine Sprite in SM64 and Sunshine. I also have neat folders on my 3DS, to the extent that I'm craving an update that introduces folders to the Wii U. Please, Nintendo, please! Suspect

If I'm just behind someone at the end of a Mario Kart race, I try and jump / drift past them. Doesn't work.
