No need to pause your game. If distracted by another person, simply stop using the controller altogether. Generic sound effects will continue to play but you will never lose or die. Once the distraction has passed, simply resume the above.

funniest book I ever read. completely unrealistic about how video games are made, but funny as hell.

P.S. I want the show to come back it was great. although if your outside of Canada you probably don't know what I'm talking about, but the picture is from the show Jpod, based of the book by Douglas Coupland.
