View Full Version : Sweaty Palms
You've been playing a game for a few hours, or you're just really getting into it, or its the final boss and you're extremly nervous. For me, all of the abouve result in sweaty palms. Kinda irks me when I have to pause the game to wipe that stuff off. This can be especially irritating during a final boss, especially if you're down to your last life/continue.
Thoughts, comments, stories?

I've never really had that problem. Although I don't really play that long unless i'm playing MVP, which doesn't really stress me out much.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 had me sweating like a cheap Dutch hooker offering a two-for-one discount service, the second time I played it. I can't remember such a thing occuring for any other game although it probably has.

That was the best analogy ever.
Me, I do run into the sweaty palm thing a lot, but honestly it's because I'm just a sweaty bastard in general. It leaves a really weird funk on my Wiimote's sleeve (yes, I bought one of those).
I concur. That analogy was awesome! :cool:
I remember one time my palms were sweating REALLY bad. I was playing the All-Stars version of Super Mario Bros. 2 and I made it to Wart for the first time ever. Sometimes I just tend to get nervous during final boss fights and Wart was no exception. I mean, he wasn't even hard but at the time, I'd never fought him before. I think it took me a few tries to beat him. Now If I were to face Wart today, I doubt I'd have sweat on my hands.

It's happened a few times, but thankfully I don't really remember. I do have rather oily skin, sadly. :(

In Germany there were so-called "grippies" available for PlayStation and N64. I think they were like cloth-condoms for controllers to avoid the pads getting slippery. I never needed them though.
Though I get excited when reaching the final boss of a game, it usually shows by a sudden feeling I have to go visit the toilet to make big buisiness. There never was a good accessory for a situation like that available...

Yeah, I run into that too. Now if only MadCatz could get cracking on a wireless portable toilet or something.

I've never had the sweaty palms problem. When I get to a last boss or something and I'm nervous, I tend to stand up. I dunno why. I just beat the boss and suddenly notice that I'm no longer sitting down.
