So you know those really annoying parts in games that happen freqeuntly and is cool to see the first time but for some reason the programmers didnt let you skip over them so you slam the buttons till its over. like in metroid prime when samus goes up or down an elevator. well i was slammin the buttons and the game froze. think its the game or the cube? first time anything froze on me and i have rogue squadrun, nba street 2, and zelda

It happens. Games will occasionally freeze. I wouldn't think anything of it.

My Gamecube has frozen once and that was during a game of Super Mario Sunshine. In an uninteresting coincidence my Xbox has only frozen once too. That was on Sky Dinosaurian Square in Jet Set Radio Future.

So yeah I agree with Timmy that it's nothing to worry about.

My Gamecube froze once.
It turns out I mistook it for a tub of ice cream.

Mine froze once during Zelda OoT Master Quest. The game was lagging a little bit before it happened though, I thought about maybe it would freeze but wasn't sure, I saved my game anyway so I was safe when it eventually did freeze.

My Gamecube has never crashed on me. My computer, however, is a different story. It's always crashing. :x

My GC froze while playing a large custom map in time splitters 2 with a lot of bots, and all my friends playing.

My DC froze once, I opened up the cd cover while playing Tokyo Xtreme Racer 2, and it went to the bios screen like it should... except the graphics for the bios where very messed up, every animation was running choppily, and upon pressing the VMU/MEMORY option, it froze.

:headbang: I wish I could do that... My friends never come to my house. Well, I never invite them because it's too small and messy.

My XBox has crashed a couple of times on me while playing Hunter the Reconing. Kinda lame cause the thing was brand new.

MetalGearRay: what's up with the G4 logo?

Morrowind for Xbox is buggy; we didn't get all the patches for PC. GOTY edition comes out later this year [supposedly with fixes], just sell your copy before then and buy GOTY =)

My PS2 froze on me while playing splinter cell.
Well, I say froze it just does what it always does and scratches a disc while it plays it, then the music went all skippy, then the game started to freeze then good old mr disc read error showed up.
Luckily a quick dusting made it work again. Unlike some of my movie dvds.
