Griefing definitely found a home online. Anyone with a microphone-enabled game and a desire to make people mad currently has the instant ability to tick off anyone who just wants to be a dragon-killing dwarf in peace. Sometimes this is hilarious, and sometimes it just gives people…annoyance. Back in the day, though, you had to get your closest friends together and make them never want to see you again with the games you had for your own console. Sure, this meant you were in punching distance to the griefee, but it was still oh so worth it. After the jump, here are some of the best titles for being a jerk in person!
Some games are much better when you don’t have to play them. Usually, this is because of the graphics or…well, mainly the graphics. But a select few games are better heard than played or seen. These are the games you leave paused on a stage just to rock and/or chill out to the awesome tunes included while you tried to forget how much money you would have saved if you just got the soundtrack instead.

Even with these insane locales, there are some places that neither Disney nor Square Enix will dare to have Sora and crew tread. Which is a shame, because some of these places would be completely awesome. Let’s look at less than 6 of them, just in time for the upcoming marathon!
Sometimes you just need to hide. Maybe you’ve had a bad day. Maybe you need to think or study. Maybe you’re being pursued by professional murderers who love the smell of blood and you look like a fleshy bag of aromatherapy to them. These days, video games have plenty of ways to take a break to reload or watch the 5 fatal bullet wounds you just got heal in ten seconds. But what forms of barriers are common, you ask? Well you’re in luck, convenient question asker, because here they are!
The new Pokemon are out, and like me, I’m sure you’re raring to catch them all. Finding new creatures, training them to become little superheroes, naming them obscene names and trading them to your younger relatives…all great times. Even so, there are those pokemon. You know, THOSE ones. The ones that get caught and then promptly get chucked into a box. The ones you never pull out because you don’t want to look at them. The ones that are weird and creepy even for a game that contains both Jynx AND Mr. Mime. After the jump, here’s a list of five of THOSE kind of pokemon, in no order at all!
Tomorrow I will debut my column, Gimme Five! It will be a weekly selection of five things centered around a theme. Also it will be funny. Here’s a detailed and thorough FAQ to answer any lingering questions!
