On the eve of Halo 2's release, my mom took my brother and I's Xbox away for whatever bad thing we did. The next day, my brother and I put all of our money together, then he skipped school, walked to the Gamestop at the mall (2 miles away), and purchased Halo 2 and a new Xbox. We played in secret for three days in my brother's room before my mom found out. She wasn't really that mad, just flabbergasted at what we did. We got our other Xbox back in due time and had 2 Xboxes until the 360 came out.-Nicholas
I started to play dungeons and dragons because a girl I had a crush on for over year said she liked the game. Last month, I had to stop playing with her because she doesn't role play enough and often speaks out of character.-Luke
When I was 5 I cried and hid in my room when they changed the time MacGyver aired, because it came on before I got home from school.-Ryan
When I was in middle school, we were told to write an essay about someone we looked up to. I wrote a two page essay on someone I knew on Everquest, because he was able to solo a boss everyone said was impossible to kill alone.-Eric

Playing MW2Player A: They're all in the bunker, you guys go in the back door.Player B (without missing a beat): That's what she said.-Ross H.
During a CoD MW2 game these two kids on my team were going at it about bitch play styles and what not. When one of them seemed to be backed into a corner he came back with the simple question of "What's your credit score? No seriously, tell me your f*cking credit score!" He won the argument because the other kid had a sh*tty score.-Eric
"If someone doesn't shoot down that Harrier, I'm gunna fart in my hand and smell it!"-Brent

SMASH. Then no, no, not my Xbox He went offline, we assume he got his Xbox smashed.-Josh
1. Reptile: The First Secret Character
Though Reptile has since been a playable character a million times over, his appearance in the original Mortal Kombat was surrounded with an air of mystery. By performing 2 flawless rounds and a fatality on the "Pit" stage, a player would be rewarded with a secret battle against the mystifying green ninja. Reptile's inclusion as a secret character would set the stage for unlockable characters in future fighting games. And though you've battled a lot of special bosses since then, no moment would be quite as exciting as the first time you exchanged fistacuffs with the lovable Sub-Zero palette swap. Ahhhh, murderous memories.
2. Street Fighter Invents Special Moves
Although the MK crew would hate to admit it, they can thank Street Fighter for their plethora of special attacks. Before Street Fighter, fighting games were primarily boxing and karate emulators. It was our old pal Ryu who introduced "throwing magic stuff while yelling" to the gaming masses. Street Fighter II would perfect the special moves introduced in the original and subsequent games in the series would innovate the way we dish out combo-based punishment to our enemies: Street Fighter or otherwise.
