I let my friend borrow my copy of Super Mario RPG and told him that
these things overheat if your not careful and play it 24 hours a day and
leave it in the sun and stuff. (When you live in such a warm climate as
we do). So next time I come to get it back, I ask where it is and he goes
to get it out of the freezer. Next time I tried it all the characters
were deleted, including the one who was at level 30 before he got to
Mack. It only took me 4 MONTHS to get it that powerful!

My worst Nintendo experience almost made me crazy. I had just
destroyed Kefka in Final Fantasy 3 and was awaiting my reward
of an ending sequence and what happens? FREEZE! The program froze,
I didn't play that game again for a week because I couldn't believe it.
I finally played again and after a few more times I won and saw the

While I was plying Yoshi's Island, I was on the last level defeating
big Bowser by throwing eggs. I just hit him and I needed one more hit
for him to die. Just then when I threw the egg it froze. I Got really
mad and started knocking my head on the wall. I had to start ALL over again.

I had my Game Genie on my Super NES and I was going all the way
through Super Ghouls and Ghosts and in the game you have to go all
the way through it twice to beat it. I was at the last castle on the
second way around and my cousin tripped on the controller cord
and the game froze.

I play a lot of older games even now. For quite a while I was working
on Kirby's Adventure for the NES. I'd never beaten the Extra Game 100%
before and this time was determined to do it. After quite a while of
playing, I made it to Orang Ocean (world 6 for those who don't know), and
my NES, which glitches from time to time, was holding out well. However,
during Orange Ocean, without warning it glitched. Not only were the
images terribly distorted, but the game had frozen, thereby making all
my hard work for nothing. I was so angry I threw the controller at the

I was playing Super Caesars Palace. I had $650,000 , give or take a
few, and was at the highest Black Jack table. I bet all my money,
then got a King of hearts and an ace for 21. I won. And then, just as he
handed me the money, the game froze, and I was forced to reset and

I was at the end of Final Fantasy 3 and the last time I saved was at
the end of the world on the island and I was fighting Kefka and I died

me because I had it on for 32 hours strait and it took it three weeks
to work. but it took three more hours for me to get it back.

One time when I played "The Adventures of Zelda" I thought I could play
the whole game without saving. WROOOOONG. When I went in to Ganon
the game just stopped, I was furious, I felt anger and pain in my thumbs.
After that I was so depressed so I didn't play on my NES for almost three

I was playing Indiana Jones Temple of doom for NES? I had been
playing all day long. I was on level 10 b. One of the last levels of the
game. No Game Genie either! Anyway, my friend came over. He was
watching me play a bit, and then he could play. Then his brother came
in and watched. You know how NES's mess up when you bump 'em? Well,
my friends brother put his foot on the stand and messed up the game! I
got sooo Mad! I forgave him, but he hasn't played my NES ever since!
