I was playing Castlevania, a long time ago, and it was time for dinner.
My little brother came in to get me, and without saying anything, pushed
in the power button. I screamed at him, "DON'T LET GO OF THAT BUTTON!!!!"
I made him stand there, holding his finger on the button, until I finished

For a while I have asked my mom not to interrupt anything going on in
my room where things can be missed (games, movies, and music). I was
playing Castlevania in hard mode as Reinhardt, and had been playing on
the duel tower for an hour or two, and now I was to the jump that takes
you out of the level. Right as I was to make the jump, my mom called me
and I missed it, plummeting into the poison water below and having to
restart the level again.

I was playing Gradius 3 when every time I sat down to play my mother
kept asking me to do something else like clean my room, water the
dog, feed the fish, open the pickle jar, etc. I only got to the second
level before dinner and after dinner I am not allowed to play Nintendo.

I was playing Killer Instinct on my Super NES, and I was just about
to beat it when my little 3 year old sister came into my room and
kicked the Super NES onto the floor for no reason at all. I got up to
get her, but she ran away, I looked at my Super NES which was still
lying on the floor with the game still in it. I looked at the TV screen,
but it was blank, and I was JUST about to beat the game only using

I was playing Mario Brothers 3 on the very first day that I had bought
it. I was on about the 5th level, which was really exciting for me
because I was having the hardest time with it, and my brother walked
by and tripped on the controller cord. This pulled the system with a
quick jerk and the game had reseted on me.

I was playing Donkey Kong Country 2 on the Super NES. I was fighting
K. Rool at the end of the game, and getting really frustrated. I had been
trying to kill him for ages and had just managed to get rid of him
(after using about 75 lives I had saved up), when my sister came in,
switched the game off before my success was saved, and told me it
was time for dinner and I had to turn the Nintendo off!
