I have learned that the only way to kill your enemy is to blow bubbles at them and then pop them.
Don't they do that in the Zelda series?

And dang it I know this one but I can't remember its name.

Bubble Bobble, but yea.

I have learned that your quest seems to always excel above it's main purpose. Like getting a fountain to run again which eventually turns into you saving the world from the appocolips.

Umm, I would say castle of the winds, but that game is so old, I doubt anyone here has played it, so instead. I say, the Goron bracelet from LoZ:OoT.

I learned to never use a scroll that you got off a body that fell from the sky.

(( I was actually thinking of Final Fantasy, but that works too!))
Elder Scrolls Morrowind!

I learned that you can poach rare wild creatures and shove them into small containment areas. Then you make them cockfight against creatures that others have poached, and place bets on it. You then proceed to massacre massive amounts of weaker creatures so that your creatures learn to love battle and get stronger. Through your travels, you learn that you can laugh in the face of Creationism and Darwinism by forcing these creatures to evolve with huge changes over the course of seconds. This can be achieved if the creature has murdered enough other creatures or if you shove a magic stone into their body. All of these creatures lay eggs, and can reproduce with creatures that are vastly different than it, and the offspring are same creature as the mother or the father, and never as a crossbreed. They send out untrained unskilled ten year old's out to capture these creatures.

Darkhearts, your number 4 is Final fantasy 10. Blitzball? I think that's what the sport is called.

Buck, yours can be 1 of two games. House of the dead, or Nazi Zombies. Both seem highly likely to me.

I've found out You can fall off a 30 story building and live. (This game has fall damage by the way).

Close, but not quite Tobee. If you want a clue, it's coming out this week for Xbox 360. Americans have it out today, but I need to wait for a few more days until I get it.
