    An article about griefers that goes right over their heads and instead makes them even more secure in their self-righteousness, Awesome. If the only way you can enjoy games is to make it so that other people can't, maybe it's time to get a new hobby.

    I kill have fun with Halo Reach by somewhat creeping my team mates out in game or party chat by singing a strange version of Ring Around The Roses. Keep it to the rhythm that Dead Space 2 had for it and sing as it is in the slowest and most creepy voice possible: "Ring around the roses. Pockets full of bullets. Death, destruction. They all will die" Did that while sniping, kept getting headshots and made my team mates and friends question my sanity xD

    Say what you want about griefing and trolling, but I actually ended up using my status as an author to successfully publish a book about trolling and griefing, and the sales were phenomenal, and the feedback was almost entirely positive. It's currently at like 4 and a half stars, the comments are mostly positive, even by the people who admitted they didn't grief, or troll, at all. It gave a lot of people insight into the nature of trolling and how not to fall play to it's hands. If you don't believe me, the first several pages of the book are free. It's really inexpensive, check it out. It's called "Zen Trolling: The Art of Griefing". It's a pretty unrecognized book, good sales aside, so you'll probably have to look through a few of the pages that come up during the search before you find it. Tell me what you think, guys!

    DEEP! :P I only play online to troll! That's what online gaming is for. :D

    Nice article, very...erm...enlightening. XD Griefing is why I stopped playing as many games online that require teamwork, because you always get that jerk who tries to spoil the fun for everyone by partaking in their own twisted version of humour. When you're playing something like Battlefield and the log in the corner is consistently showing instances of blue players meeting their demise at the hands of other blue players you have to wonder why anyone is even bothered about carrying on playing. And yes, I know griefing isn't exclusive to TK'ing, but that's what drives me up the wall the most.

    slide 6 is right on :O "There's no going back; you're a griefer, plain and simple. " I found I don't even play games to win anymore. I just troll. All day troll. Trolling is best #1

    When I played Guild Wars I'd occasionally strip down to nothing and run around alliance battles typing out the entire song of "It's been one week" by Barenaked Ladies, or other random songs like "Lola" by The Kinks. Also, I'm not sure if this counts as griefing but in one of the big pvp gathering spots two friends and I each made a new pvp-only character. I named mine, "God's Right Testicle", one friend named his "God's Right Testicle", and the last of us was named "God's Shaft". We sync-danced for a good while and eventually got temporarily banned. It was my first ban and I felt so wronged, those fuckheads.

    Woops, I blanked during remembering this. I was the Right and the other Right was actually the Left. Or was it reversed? I think this was...3 years ago? I forget.

    LOL I wish I could've seen such a thing--a random streaker screaming "Chickity China the Chinese chicken"

    "You have a drumstick and your brain stops tickin'!" It was great until I realized I will never be able to sing along to the verse before the sailor moon anime babes one. Something like "gonna find a better set of clubs gonna find the kind with tiny nubs gonna find em just so my irons aren't always flyin' off the backswing", it trips me up EVERY time, hardest song to sing period

    So Lucas, is there something you aren't telling us? You seem a bit too familiar with this process. Are you, a..... Griefer? Former Griefer perhaps?
  • GR_LucasSullivan - May 9, 2013 5:39 p.m.

    Welllllllll, I've been known to start Sniper Warz in TF2 by taunting after every headshot and/or forcing other people to switch to Sniper/Spy in the hopes of revenge. But it's in all in good fun! At least, that's what I tell myself.
