Arrow in the knee probably takes the cake (no pun intended), at least for me. Might be because it's the most recent.

You guys?

Agreed with the arrow. Was funny once or twice, then I realized just how much it was going to be used.
Bro, when you tack on mass, you sacrifice flexibility. That's just a straight up fact

I think "The Cake is a lie" is the worst, it was almost 4 years before that one fell out of use.

Arrow in the knee for sure. The Cake Is A Lie was funny at first and has gotten old. Memes in general wear out their welcome so fast once everyone starts referencing them constantly...

Arrow in the knee isn't the newest one but was by far the most overused. Another annoying one was "The Cake is a Lie" but that was sort of late last-gen into early this one.

On another note I HATE...hate hate hate...how much "literally" is being used lately too. In context (to it's #2 meaning anyway...which actually contradicts it's #1 meaning, but I won't even get in to that) it's supposed to drive home a point but ONLY when the point needs to be driven home. Using it all the time pretty much negates it's effect.

I was going to answer this question, but then I took a cake to the knee.

Which is the most recent? I seriously can't remember.

That bit about the cake is a lie isn't true, the meme originated from Portal which was released in 2007 which was well into this gen.

I'm drawing a blank, but there was even another Skyrim one after that...the sweet rolls.

Guess I was wrong, I was thinking of HL 2 and that was definitely released last gen...it even release on the original XBox.
