Whew! That was a close one so much blood
Welcome to Yorkcast!
Yeah This is a pretty nice town you got here.
Yup! We have weapon shops, potion shops, and a place for you to heal. That's it, though.
And that sustains your economy?
Really nice place. You guys don't have a monster problem?
Nope. No monsters here.
Because, outside, it's like, every five steps is some kind of giant, terrible monster. They're everywhere. I'm surprised you even exist.
Well, we have a fence.
Of course. I was wasting all my time with swords and fire-spells. I should have gone with plywood.
I guess. We also called it a "safety-zone". That seemed to work pretty well.

So me and my friend were playing COD4 and on the mic all we could hear is this really loud and annoying screaming. So we asked what it was. This was our answer: "Oh yeah, sorry guys that's my 3 year old daughter, one sec SHUT THE F@#K UP!!!!" The screaming stopped. -Colin
Kid: I'm coming! I'm coming!" I assume he was talking to his mom. Me: That's what she said.The game erupts in laughter.Kid: I don't get it.Room erupts in more laughter.Me: You will learn about it in college.-Matt
I got online on CODMOD 2, and said, "Hey everyone," and was met with the usual chorus of, "A GIRL?!" Then some 9 year old decided to be extremely original and say, "Bitch, make me a sammich!" So I retorted with, "I already did. It's sitting on your kitchen table." He left for a second, and when he came back, he said, terrified, "Oh my god there was really a sandwich there." I said, "I know, I made it." He immediately left.-Madison
15. The Chosen One (Fallout 2)
The Chosen One began life as a tribal nobody trying to end a drought. But his belief in every man's right to freedom, regardless of radiation levels and/or mutation, eventually lead him to freeing the West Coast (or what remained of it) from the Enclave. All he had to do was murder the President of the Enclave (don't worry he was evil. Millard Fillmore-evil) and blow up an oil rig (an evil oil rig. Deepwater Horizon-evil). And with that, the people of the post-apocalyptic land no longer had to live in fear of the evil government just super mutants, radiation, starvation, dehydration, disease, raiders, slavers, radscorpions, poison, gangsters, thieves, ghouls, rats, and deathclaws. That's called "progress."
14. Abe (Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee)
Abe had the unfortunate role of having to save his fellow Mudokon slaves from the ruthless, horrible-factory-designing Molluck and RuptureFarms. Unfortunately the Mudokons, while good-natured and hard-working, were completely unable to understand that walking into an electric forcefield would probably not end well. This alone should stand as a testament to Abe's dedication to freedom. That, and not having his mindless brethren turned into food products. Something we can all relate to.

I dislocated my kneecap and tore my meniscus playing MLB 2K9 on the Wii. When I told everyone how I got my injury, they mocked me, saying I broke my knee playing Wii baseball. It irked me that they didn't call it MLB 2K9 like I had said.-Frank
I was dating this girl for about two years in high school when she broke up with me. It was almost out of nowhere and she started dating some random guy she met a month before right after. Now at the time I had been playing Final Fantasy 9, and I had named the lead female character, Dagger, after her, Ashley. When we broke up, I used a re-name card and changed the name from Ashley to Slut and took her out of my main party. I'm almost embarrassed to admit how much better that made me feel. Almost.-Lilian
I took a week off work for the death of Batman.-Karl
I asked my boyfriend to marry me by getting down on one knee and putting a Nintendo Power Glove on his hand.-Suela
