I've learned most of the skateboard tricks I know from carefully observing how characters move their legs in Tony Hawk games.-Law

For English class, we were told to re-write a chapter of a book and turn it in for extra credit. I chose Of Mice and Men, and re-wrote the entire thing using Team Fortress 2 characters. My teacher wouldn't accept it because I forgot to take their respective accents into account. I got zero points extra credit, because my teacher was a bigger nerd than me.-Mason

I recently graduated from law school, passed the bar and got a real job. Needless to say I don't have a lot of time to play video games right now. However, I always reserve a few hours on Sunday night to play Call of Duty with two of my uncles, two little cousins (their sons, respectively) and my dad, who is deploying to Afghanistan very soon. Video games are pretty much the only thing that brings my family together these days.-Jason

I've been playing Dead Space 3 the past couple of days but only at night and with the window open. The reason I do that is because it gets down to 30 degrees outside and I'm trying to simulate Tau Volantis.-Robert

I was recently given my 4 weeks notice that my employment contract will not be renewed. Despite having a wife, mortgage and a reasonable amount of credit card debt that will not react well to my pending state of joblessness, my first thought was "That's about when the new Starcraft comes out. Sweet, I'll have time to play." (If you're reading this, sweetheart, it's totally not me and I intend on having another job by then.)-Joshua

One day when I was walking to school, I heard a noise – it was just the 'screech' sound a truck makes when it stops, but the second I heard it, I looked up to try to find a dragon. The only thought I had after that was: 'I need to stop playing Skyrim.'-Anonymous

My brother just had a kid and named him 'Ocelot', but I just call him 'Revolver' (or 'Lil Revolver'). He doesn't know why I call Ocelot that and keeps telling me I'm weird. Well, as soon as Lil Revolver's old enough, I'll get him Metal Gear Solid and everything should fall into place.-Ray

Two summers back, I was playing my first playthrough of Fallout 3. A family friend called and asked if I could babysit his son's hermit crabs while they went on holiday, to which I agreed. He dropped them off and I put their tank next to the TV so that I could get back to Fallout. Skip forward an hour or so, and I've totally forgotten about the hermit crabs. At which point, one of them decides to come out of its shell and see what's happening. Seeing this out of the corner of my eye I assumed (as any sane person would) that I was under attack by rad-scorpions, leading me to press the VATS button, leaving me confused as to why I couldn't find any rad-scorpions.-Dom

Tales of the Symphonia is the only reason I can tell a stalagmite from a stalactite.-Miku

Article The Goatee Game: Tony Stark, Walter White, or Gordon Freeman?

By Chloe Cole / November 6, 2013

Walter White, Tony Stark and Gordon Freeman are all popular cosplays these days. They're all ambitious science-types who (for the most part) have shunned all facial hair outside of their goatees (also, they each kill a bunch of people), so close up they all look pretty similar. Let's celebrate No Shave November by trying to guess which goatee belongs to which cosplay.

So - who does each goatee belong to: Tony Stark, Walter White, or Gordon Freeman? 

Rollover each picture to find out!
