Same. This happens to me so much that I sometimes plan for it. I guess it's a combination of your brain working on it when you're sleeping or carrying out mundane tasks at home or at work, and the physical element of you just being energetic and alert.

Same here too. A good friend of mine gave up on Castlevania at the Ice Titan saying it was bullshit, and he wouldn't have gotten that far if we hadn't been taking turns... And that was on easy.
I think that kids are very much the same. In life, as soon as something presents a challenge, they give up immediately, and have to be either seduced into working hard by making it fun, bribed into it with rewards or threatened with punishment.
Some adults are that way too. The delay of gratification is one of the best things you can learn from gaming I think, as it has benefits everywhere in your personal life.
