I simply watch a youtube video to see how someone else gets past the part of the game I am stuck in. Or I read a player's guide on Gamefaqs. I watch someone else play the game in a walkthrough, and that usually helps me get pass areas of a game I'm stuck in. What about you? What do you do in order to get pass areas of a game you are stuck in?

I wiggle(if I literally can't move.) or I keep on trying till I suceed and if that doesn't work I take a nap, and then try again when I wake up or forget and never come back until way later.

Depends: If it's a pvp game where I can't progress anymore due to others, Alt-F4 is a 100% guarantied fix. If it's a glitch, then I reload if possible or Alt-F4 again.

If I'm stumped on what I need to do, I use my massive intellectual brain power, and by definitely not cheating, retrieve the answer from one of my many higher brain functions, gracefully progressing forward with pride from figuring it out ALL BY MYSELF!

Well, I am stuck on my Fable III game. My town had a blackout right as a character in the game was opening a door for me. I turn my game back on, and the character is on the other side of the door but the door is closed with no way to open it. The game is entirely based on auto-save and has no load feature.

I sent a message to the game support line, and they're like "LOL SORRY start a new game." Pfffffftttt

Depends on how I'm stuck:

-tough boss? Keep trying if it seems like I can win. If not, grind and come back stronger.
-RPG that wants you to go do something before the story advances? Run all over the place, in all buildings, and talk to everyone. Then that dumb party member will eventually come outta' nowhere and ask "You ready to go?" (I've been ready!!! Where the heck have you been??)
-crazy puzzle? I'm most likely over thinking it and I just missed a ladder or a door or something. Again, I run around/think or I step away from the game to clear my mind and come back later.

Whatever the situation, I don't do walk-throughs. Sure I'm currently feeling frustration. But it'll make my eventual success that much sweeter! Muahahahahaha!!

1) Look for help.
2) Keep trying.
3) Give up for a little while and do something else.

It really depends on my mood.

I don't get stuck in video games, it's just not a possibility for me.
