I don`t really care about most of this, but people staring at the ground annoys the poo out of me. Still so, I think it`s pretty amusing to watch non-gamers try to play. Especially the time me and my older sister got my mom to play beautiful katamari.

#5 It`s your fault. Not the game`s. Not the controller`s. Not the connection`s. Not the lighting`s. Yours.

mouichi, if you`re gay, and getting married, are you both each other`s fiance`s still?

I`m a gamer, and put a lot of spare time into it, because I find calculating things (money prospects in MMOs), and strategizing more involving than watching television, and probably much better for the brain. My ex-fiancé, he`d always ask about the story of games that I`d be playing, but he`d interrupt me, and go off and do something else. It irked me. Some of these seemed rather nitpick-ish, but I can agree with a few. If I have something to do, but I can`t get to a save point, I`ll just (get this) pause the game... And if it`s an MMO, I just go out of aggro range of enemies... heck, even if you die, in most MMOs, the only thing you lose is experience... I do agree with the statement about being hypocritical, and the lack of researching what you`re bitching about.

i agree with every one of these except 25 because i think enter the matrix is a great as well as a couple other bargain bin titles. but on the other hand you cant beat a masterpiece.

also i think that people who are 11 years old playing halo online should stop screaming OH MY GOD HOW ARE YOU KILLING ME YOU F*CKIN NOOB HACKER!!! should be given something to make their high squeaky voices at least not as unbearable and painful to listen to. also when playing online if you are one of those 11 year olds who get their 15 year old brothers to swear for them, stop using the microphone please. (yes that actually happened to me)

Some of the list was so true.
It gets me so annoyed when someone uses a controller when their hands are food covered, or they lash it on the floor.
But some of the points just make the list sound like it was written by someone who badly needs some other aspects to their life.
And its not my fault if i get really into the game and start jumping about.
Why do people complain about that?
I am making a fool of myself, just point and laugh.
Dont bitch about it.

Yea, people look and sound pretty stupid when they use their ignorance to be cool. It`s really like any other form of entertainment; so, why don`t they pay attention and get it right instead of acting like asses.

Also, this list may be uptight, but it`s mostly correct.

I love 19 and 20. ROFL.
And #8 is very accurate.. My mother doesn`t like it when I interupt her goddamn reality TV show, so why should she be so insulted when I ask her to be quiet during a cutscene.
My dad insists on mispronouncing the game names.
No joke. He can twist the word `Naruto` so bad that it sounds like a Spanish name or a disease.


I am so glad I got a lock on my game room.. >.<

so true sabrewolf03. i hate when people tell us we`re wasting time but when they spend hours watching their favorite TV series that`s not wasting time.
It`s not a waste of time. We play games for the same reason non-gamers do their hobbies. BECAUSE IT`s FUN!

#15 No, his name isn`t "Zelda." It`s Link. Samus isn`t "Metroid" and Pikachu isn`t "Pokemon." Sometimes videogames - like books, films and television - are complex enough to contain characters with names separate from the title. Hard to believe, but true!

somme ppl here are having issues about

"who the hell is this list for? im not like this and this dosnt even consern me, im a gamer!"

well first off... the entire world of gamers do not game like you do, the way i see it, this list is for

"non-Gamers" and their attitude against "gamers"

gamers have friends to that game. and its annoying to get most of these comments thrown like a brick, into the back of my skull.

I can connect with this. just becous you can`t, even tho you game, STFU and go lived your socalled "life" thats betther than this. :O

Ha. Resident Evil 4 makes me happy, mtwoofwoof. I hated the regenerators though.

Some of these things were valid points, but some of them were kind of stupid. There is always a pause button. Unless it`s an online flash game that forgot to make one.

Haha, this list made me lol at times. It completely reminded me of my friend who frequently comes over to my house to play video games, but has never owned any consoles... she`s terrible at them, lol.

"#16 Scared stupid. If you`re going to scream and run away each time an enemy fires a gun, swings a punch or makes the slightest noise, perhaps you should sample a hobby other than videogames."

Guilty from Resident Evil 4.... Stupid Chainsaw people and Regenerators...

"#20 is bull. You know what? If you said, "hey, I`m going to play my game for a little bit and then I`ll come over and chill..."
and 2 HOURS later because you couldn`t get to a stupid save area, you`re still playing..."
My boyfriend does that all the damn time! I`ll be ready to go out and he`ll say he`ll be over by a certain time and hours later he still isn`t there b/c #1 he needed to find a save point and #2 he couldn`t finish getting ready b/c he had to find said save point. *sigh* and #4 makes me angry.grr.
I actually like games and I have no problem with people playing them but if it`s going to consume roughly 98% of your "life" you probably should take a step back.

"I suppose if you holed up in a cave like a troglodyte retard and played World of Warcraft for half a decade, you`d be a frail-whale, f*ckpail failure, but if anyone tries to take away my drunken Mario Parties, I`ll tear into their f*cking jugular.

@ the basement dwellers complaining about their moms: Think of it as your rent payment. Don`t like it? Pack the f*ck up and get the f*ck out."

Haha, I think I sh*t my pants.

I consider myself a gamer, I`m a good looking guy with a fiancee and an active social life... I make good money and seek higher education much like most of my friends who also game. The gaming community has changed so much but the stereotype remains the same.

I am an avid gamer.
Not hard-core, not a sissy gamer, just avid.
I agree with every one of these items.
I had to put down my GBA(SP) just to read this. Luckily I don`t care about the time on my game (currently 63:32 hours on Final Fantasy V).

But I`m not a big FPS guy, but I`m huge on RPGs, and platformers. I`ve played all the Pokemon games, beaten all of the LoZ games, and beaten every Mario game that`s on a major console.
But I have a social life, despite the huge number of hours I put into games. Stereotypes are stereotypes for a reason though...

I`m an independent, healthy, strong, handsome and educated guy with active social and sexual lives, and an upwardly mobile career with a payout so impressive it`d make you sh*t your pants. I`m taller than Godzilla`s wedding d*ck, I`m so awesome that, were it possible, I`d make a clone of myself and sex that b*stard like I had to repopulate the planet.

I play video games. I know plenty of people who succeed the sh*t out of life, and play video games.

The idea video games are for losers seems to have been created by the selectively chosen material of i-am-bored; I`ve honestly never seen this nonsense anywhere else. Hell, twice video games have helped me get laid (thrice if you count putting a vibrating Wiimote into some number`s hoo-hole).

...I`m NOT holding the eff on for you. Just keep playing your game, buddy, because life is going to keep on going without you.

My sister`s guilty of this. My mom, I know, is the biggest noob when it comes to videogames, but hey, if she needs help cooking, you do NOT tell your mom, "HOLD ON I NEED TO SAVE!!"

You stfu and go help. Real life matters more, first, always.

First and foremost, if you`ve found something that is both entertaining and mentally challenging, you have beat all other forms of media hands down. If it is not challenging to you, but just entertaining, you are watching TV.

This list sucked. Im an normal gamer. I play video games and are good at them, but at the same time i have a life and id much rather hang out with my freinds and go places. And i play good when im by myself, but when im playing video games with freinds who dont play video games that much ill just goof off with them because its stupid to get that serious and your freinds really dont feel like watching you obsess over a game. Key word GAME. GAME. I mean whoever this list was aiming towards obviously has no life and just stays inside all day playing. I mean its bad when people are that overly obsessive and neurotic over video games.

So all in all this list blows. Games are fun to play and meant to be that way, not overly aggresive and competitive. But dont spend all day on them Also freinds and family should always come before video games.

When you read this list, do it in a whiny 12 year old geek voice (the kind you hear using words like "nub" and "pwn" on X-Box live).

I mean, it`s ok to have complaints, but many of these are more pedantic and sniveling than the anti-gamer`s complaints. It`s stuff like this that makes us normal gamers look bad.

This is a surprisingly good list. Very direct and accurate and makes a strong point about mutual respect for hobbies. I`ve been a gamer for a long time and know plenty who are. It`s just a hobby and I keep it that way as I have a real life too, but damn, there needs to be some respect shown here. Media (worst offender) friends, and those who simply don`t know, read this.

A few years ago I had a friendly argument over the hero in Legend of Zelda`s name.
OF course I got it right.

I lived with Gamers of all types, throughout my life. I even pick up the controller every now and again to play a few Final Fantasy, Splinter cell, and Mario Party games with a few family members.
And I have to say that this list is way too uptight. Being a gamer, I say that one should enjoy themselves and not to get angry at other friends for "bumping into them" or pressing the "Pause" button. It is JUST a game! And it was created so that you can have some fun! So enjoy you`re self instead of getting overly competitive and angry just because the rest of us Gamers want to have fun and have to intension`s of doing any different. You are utterly pathetic if you are one of these people! And You are the ones that ruin gaming for the rest of us!
