The word "coward" gets thrown around a lot on these boards.

Please explain to me how one can be a "coward" in a video game? While sitting on your ass in front of a TV screen holding a plastic controller to interact with a completely non-existant virtual world how can anything you do be "cowardly"? Is sitting on a couch playing a video game an act of "cowardice"? Come on now.

Seems like people just call other players cowards because they got killed. Basic insults and shaming tactics. Nothing more impressive than what one would see on a kindergarten playground.

A real coward is one who sits behind a cloak of anonimity and spews insults and degredation from the comfort of his home knowing that there will be no consequences. That's why I love LAN play. People don't dare say half the crap they do online when in the same room. That's what a coward is.

I say way worse when playing LAN. And I throw shoes. Why? Because I expect the same, and since I am a big boy and can take it, it makes the game way more enjoyable since we are all striving to be our very best for the right to talk smack.

You need better/closer friends if you have to sensor yourself around them.
