Important items the player needs to progress through a game can often be found floating in mid-air

When a player switches weapons the old weapon often disappears

Underwater levels and escort quests are often annoying

Dinosaurs can shoot laser beams

I learned everyone playing that new "Mature" rated game is an eleven-year old boy with an eleven-year old girl's voice. And they all want to say racist and homophobic vulgarities.


Exactly. That is why I have stopped playing online multiplayer altogether. Either I do well and am accussed of cheating or I don't do well and am swore at for being a noob or some kind of vulgarity. But the fact that it's a 12 year old bigot is the icing on the cake.

Oh and the thing I've learned is that my wife just doesn't "get it."


Lol, yeah I often avoid online games and if I do play I don't bother with a mic. I don't relish having to listen to some racist twelve year olds talking rubbish.

If it's shiny, it's important.

All you need to kill a dinosaur is a 7 foot long hammer and some sea lion guts slathered on a medium-well steak.
All you need to kill a dragon is a 9 foot long sword and some flash bangs.

Children are a glitch in the matrix.

Anything & Everything is a weapon against Zombies also You can create a powerful weapon by taking two items and using Duct Tape (Dead Rising series) Duct tape really is useful for anything.

Everyone will think your someone else when you look nothing like that person except for wearing their clothes (Hitman)

Almost every main female protagonist wields a gun.

There are very few African American male protagonists

You can hide from your enemies by walking in a crowd of people (Assassin's Creed)

That I prefer virtual reality over my own. Ha

Breaking random objects will often reveal treasure or other useful items

Naked player characters always have their bits blurred out

Killing chickens can turn a whole town against you

Guards or patrolmen are often psychic and can often figure out what crime the player has commited without seeing it beforehand.

Walking too close to a guard is punishable by death without trial. (hitman)

Before going into a portal, always have your strongest weapon equipped, so you're not spawn raped on the other side..

You can change direction mid-air.

Valuable items are often left unmonitored in crates, pots, and barrels.

You can avoid being hurt from long falls by either butt-stomping, rolling, or landing on an incline.

Talk to everyone you see; they may give you an item or money.
