[QUOTE="Sim Kid, post: 1593192, member: 22276"]35. Moving step-by-step through a really long dungeon that is literally just one long claustrophobic maze full of virtually-identical hallways with very little landmarks to distinguish this dead-end from another.[/QUOTE]

37. Instead of saving your game in a save file you actually need to fetch a pen and paper to jot down a password so you can pick up where you last left off.

38. Apparently it's okay for enemies to have an attack that always makes your entire party have 1hp left.

40. Your thumb becomes swollen and sore from rubbing against a hard, unergonomic D-pad/control stick.

43. The game's bonus levels can only be accessed by beating the game eight times. And since the game has no save function, you have to do this in a single sitting.

48. Twisting/tying/bending the wires in weird ways to make them work because now they're fraying because they got tugged from being tripped over or chewed on.

I had a PS2 that needed to have the power cord wrapped tightly around the system itself so it would stay on. Dare touch it and it powers off right in your face.

53. You had to walk through a solid wall. Your fault for not trying to walk through all of the walls.

54. Darn it, I have no idea where to go. Oh wait a minute - when I look at the map on a Game Boy Advance SP or an emulator on a nicely lit computer screen, I can see the thing that looks like a border suggesting a dead-end is actually not.
