Let's face it. In video games, you just got to die sometimes. Maybe it's a scripted sequence where you are kill by a dirtbag who killed you after you spent countless of retries trying to secure a god forsaken piece of junk intel files from an anicent computer with primitive downloading speed then you got to run your a** outta there and give it to him just to see him give you a bullet in the stomach and you know it's just not fair because you spent so much time doing that mission and now he's betraying you... sorry, or you just happened to choose Veteran Mode as your difficulty level. What I mean to say is, there're a LOT of ways to die in a video game. And lets face it, the are some ways that are... uh, less noble tthan others. Or even worse, idiotic. I'm here to give you some example of how stupid can we get in video games, so that you may learn to know AND avoid them, so that you won't become a laughing stock like I did. And I swear to god, I didn't know what's a Frag back then...
1: Stick around explosive material during gunfight.
As we all know, explosives are dangerous. That's why we have all those warning sign, big red flame icon pained on each and every fuel barrel and the infamous quote "Don't try this at home.". Explosives are even MORE dangerous when...uh, explodes, because then they release a big BOOM! whith a wave of energy that's powerful enough to kill everybody around it.
And how do we get explosive materials like fuel barrels, cars, mines,etc... to explode in videogames?
We shoot them.
So it might not be the smartest idea to wander around these kind of things, especially when a freakin' huge battle going on and there're a zillion of bullets going towards you with a very high chance of hitting you and everything around , incuding the all time classic fuel barrel.
So if you're think about finding cover during a teamdeathmatch in MW2 next time, try to use the sandbags instead of big red barrel.
