Article The 8 Types of Grand Theft Auto Players

By Andrew Bridgman / September 13, 2013

Grand Theft Auto games aren't immensely challenging - the game is designed to basically serve up an entire city as your own personal playground, so long as you don't mind stealing cars all the time and murdering every person in sight. But some people like to add a little challenge spice to the GTA stew by doing the impossible - actually following the law. No stealing cars, no murdering civilians, and - hell - even obey the traffic lights. It ain't always easy, but you'll appreciate what you got a whole lot more when you aren't punching a guy out of his own car to get it.

Article New Gaming Slang

By Andrew Bridgman / August 13, 2013

Pwn? Noob? Leet? These terms are outdated and, frankly, a little childish-sounding. We associate them with the worst of gamers: the hyperbolically-angry, loud, anti-social, shut-in gamers of the world. It's time to retire these old terms and replace them with some new ones that would be more in line with the world today. Here are our suggestions for what terms could replace the old slang.

1. n00b

What We Should Replace It With: Pichu

Pichu is an example of a terrible idea someone at Pokemon had – to add worse, weaker pre-evolutions of existing Pokemon. Imagine being a Pokemon designer, looking at something like Pikachu or Jynx, and saying "Nah, we need this but worse." Pichu is probably the most well-known of these horrible ideas, so let's start calling unreasonably bad players Pichu. Because Pichu sucks.

Example: "Did he seriously just try to no scope that sniper? What a Pichu."

2. pwn'd

What We Should Replace It With: Dwayne Johnson'd

Listen – you could say you "rocked" someone, as in destroying them in a showy manner. But we don't say "rock" anymore – we say "Dwayne Johnson." Look at the credits for Fast & Furious 6. Welcome to the 21st century.

Example: "30 kills, no deaths. I totally Dwayne Johnson'd you Pichus that game."
