If that was my kid I would drown him.
I'm borrowing this, Bradley. And thanks.
Every time I play Animal Crossing 3 or MySims on my Wii online, I can't tell you how many kids start cussing me out saying things like "Man, your lion has a dumb name." and "Ha! You fill in that pit I made! You Been p0wned, sucka!"
But what can you do ...
What a douchebag. I look forward to seeing him on America's Most Wanted.
Aaah Xbox Live, so rich in your stratified diversity. One doesn't encounter this playing Settlers of Catan or Uno. Even other games of similar ilk self-select against this kind of behavior.
Hehehe. Watching people lose their shit in a freak out is so precious, especially if it's over something completely vapid.
I believe that this is the seminal work of the genre.
What a fucking whiny, bitchy-ass n00b. Can't wait to run into this dolt in Halo 3. They always make me laugh my ass off.
(Cueing up Whitney:) "I believe the children are our future..." (sound of explosion)
Seems like a typical teen male burning off the frustrations of the day to me. Sure, it's obnoxious and he's confrontational, but find me a teen who isn't.
I'd rather have him doing this in the privacy of his own home than in a classroom or on a city bus.
If this were my kid, I think I'd have a talk with him about the importance of controlling one's temper and then figure out some kind of rigorous physical activity to burn off all that stress, because that kid is really stressed out.
I think that's Will in Seattle...
or maybe Belleview Ave after cooking up a bowl full o' meth.
I think every time I've freaked out like that in my life, put back to back, would be maybe a 5 minute video. Can't say it was ever over a video game. But I've literally been hopping mad a few times. I hopped.
Ecce, you should spend more time playing video games. Oh I forgot, the Slog is your video game. How many points did I just give you by using your handle in this comment?
makes me giggle
Ever wonder what one does to prepare for a career at Burger King. Well now you know.
@5: Sorry, run into plenty of specialness playing Uno. Maybe not as loud, but sure as crass.
Yow! That is a lot of venom directed at an inanimate electronic picture tube. Next thing you know, he'll be whacking at a flaming can of WD-40 with a stick.
can anyone give us the German-to-Nerd translation?
No headset, much better.
i talk mad shit in uno on xblive right before i drop the draw-four wild card.
I'm scared and laughing at the same time. I could see that being my son in about 10 years.
I can't wait for the day when behavior like this is accepted at poker tables.
Oh wait, yes I can.
Halo is stupid and, clearly, so are the people who play it. This young man probably doesn't communicate well IRL.
