Just being able to play games is only the beginning. If you're going to call yourself a proper gamer (as opposed to a casual pretender) there are a few requisite skills that you must master first. 50 skills, in fact. And they're all right here...
LOL!!! Very funny list...sorry to say that I'm guilty of a few of these. :)
Play you 360 for over an hour without it RROD on your looser ass Try playing other game's than Shooters STOP Talking so much crap online and Stop giving yourselve's virtual high five's every time you Oooh so pwn someone with a headshot
Bubbles for you my friend
"you have to keep this 360 less then 30 degrees or it will DIE!!!" theres a new skill bots gota learn!! lol
Ahahaha, that's one of the best and funniest article I've ever read! Well done!
Funny, I sometimes don't want to take piss breaks, but I have too :( I guess I'm not a real video gamer :(
this is my favorite one in the list: "33. Confidently guess what a developer's secret project/unannounced title is If all else fails, predict Shenmue 3." lol sidenote:this is the only article that has a list worth reading in a long time.
Didn't get that.. Probebly because I'm no the best in English.
definantly one of the best articles ive read in ages :-). awesome list. im glad to say that i havent had to look at a control pad since forever lol. anyway was a decent read, makes a change :-) xxx
He has some clear cut signs for good video gamers, and others are just funny exagerations. Good read for sure. I agree with the controller one. I can play any system without ever looking at the controller. My roomate has to look at the PS3 controller, and he's an Xbox fanatic. The wii was the hardest one to get used to IMO. But even it's a peice of cake.
This one was pretty funny. If only because it is all too true with QTE's. When I started on the Playstation I honestly was thinking of making a big cardboard display of the button images I could set down under my TV because I kept screwing up QTE's. Now I think I got em down ;) 16. Instinctively know the location of all controller buttons and their respective numerical, alphabetical or symbol-based denominations When playing, a real gamer never has to look at the controller. Unless it's to check that it's not on fire.
Stop being a fanboy!!!!!
Lol! This list has so many truths in it. My fav no doubt are. . . 38. To simultaneously perform other important life tasks while playing Multi-tasking is the cornerstone of every real gamers' brain. You should be able to eat pizza, guzzle coffee, fill in a job application, build a house of cards AND successfully evade a six-star wanted level in GTA IV all at the same time. and 47. Have at least one game that you are unbeatable at Great list.
This was a great read!
51. Is your GF bored or are you out on a "boring" trip with her? what a better place to explain her that really uber complex and extremelly emotive RPG story, go ahead try to explain a 120 hour story that you don't even understand to a GF (or girl) that is not even listenning to you. And yes sir, you impressed her with that. 52. What about explaining her about that discussion you had on EN-FOR-GEE: "there is this stupid guy that says that 360 has better bump mapping than PEE ES THREE I MEAN IT HAS TEH CELL PROCESSOR THAT HAS 8 CORES EACH ONE USED FOR DIFFERENT THINGS, LIKE 6 FOR GAMING AND 2 FOR OTHER PURPOSES THERE IS EVEN ONE THATS NOT BEING USED, like if they know wtf you are talking about, not even you know.
especially the lying about a retro game. the same could go for a "classic" movie or album. Even if you've never heard or seen it, you know enough about it to not have to get stuck actually watching, seeing or playing.
