    Sweet, you guys reused the gamer caricature Tyler Wilde made couple of years back!

    My personal tips: Don't be afraid to refuse an invite to play Brawl or something if you've got a big test coming up or are swamped with work or papers to do. Everyone will understand, no one will hold it against you, and you'd be a fool to play games at the expensive of your grades. If you have nothing better to do though, hang out with people as much as possible. Simply because it's fun! I suggest going to off campus houses though, they're usually bigger and they won't have any sort of noise or liquor rules. And bring snacks. Bring stuff for older systems. I probably played N64 multiplayer the most. Also, feel free to get some purposely bad multiplayer games, add alcohol, and they will be loads of fun. Even if we couldn't figure out wtf was happening with that terrible N64 wrestling game, who cares, we were laughing the entire time. Also, bring your handhelds, DSs are huge in college and you can play those in the dining halls and cafeterias for a quick round of Mario Kart or Pokemon inbetween classes. Especially bring these if you commute to campus. Don't forget to charge it, sounds obvious, but it's easy to forget. Multiplayer games where everyone has to be in the same room are the best imo. Because then when something funny happens, everyone saw it. And when something bad happens, the person is right there, so you can punch them right away instead of the next time you see them.

    here's a tip: to avoid looking like a tool, don't wear sunglasses indoors.

    Too late for that, bro. Lolololol. Well, there is one good reason for wearing sunglasses indoors--you can play games for longer. It effectively replaces Gunnars, something that GamesRadar likes to advertise. This website is gonna hate me now...

    Tip 11: Buy Fifa. Damn near everyone on my campus plays it.
  • Foodperson - September 9, 2012 8:08 a.m.

    Tip 12: If tip 11 fails, buy a fighting game. Sorry to rip off from you, but damn near everyone on my campus plays fighting games, even Brawl.

    That's a good point. And there is nothing quite like experiencing drunk mario party lol

    lmao, I got terrible grades my sophomore year in 2004 when WoW came out

    Pretty sure video games aren't a substitute for exercise.

    DDR is used in school gym classes. Great for weight loss and all that.

    Hsve they heard of Dance Central yet?

    Another cool space-saving tip is to buy a gaming laptop. It's portable, you can play most PC games on it, and you can even use it as a TV for your consoles.

    I enlisted in the marines after high school. So I never experianced the collage life style. But I would imagine it's probably pretty similar. Theres a lot of gamers in the military too. And on weekends we would usually hold some Call of Duty or Halo tournament in the barracks.
  • zombi3grim - September 7, 2012 3:14 p.m.

    I was in the Marines. And went to college. No. Their not similar in any way.

    I'd put Security at no.1 because you can lose everything in a night if your stuff isn't secure. College dorms are high on the list of places for thieves to rob from.

    Pretty sure there's a bong on the desk in "Optimize your living space"
  • Craza - September 6, 2012 4:15 p.m.

    It's a speaker. You can see another one exactly like it on the left side on top of the CD tower. ....Or they could have two bongs.
  • GAYMER - September 6, 2012 5:10 p.m.

    Incase you hadn't noticed it already; directly above the speaker/bong there's a poster of Darth Vader smoking a joint
