    The controller pass fits well when I'm playing Super Smash Bros. I'm just a little too good at fighting games, so unless I go into a 3 on 1 match, I usually clean house. That being said, most people get tired of challenging me, so I hand my controller off to the person who has played the least.

    #7 is a bit of stupid, because I tend to hear that kind of bullshit when I play with some character I'm really good with. For example, Ganondorf on Smash Bros. Brawl is pretty mediocre, but I can really use him well and Meteor Smash the shit out of everyone. And much like knifing in a FPS, Meteor Smash REALLY get people mad. So whenever I play Brawl with my friends and pick Ganondorf, I get showered by complaints.

    I got complaints that my smash tactic with Bowser was "stale." And so is everyone using link or fox, and doing the same tactic over and over again, but hey. I'm not complaining...

    Yeah, specially when you use Suicidal Flying Slam during a stock match VS the last opponent on his last stock. People get so mad with that.

    or as any good gamer would do. . . make sure all your controllers are up to spec and in good condition. . . no sticky buttons or stuck thumb-sticks

    Sticky buttons are a big turn-down. I don't let anyone touch my controllers before washing hands. No Doritos on mah babies!

    Most important rule of all. "This is my house. I am player 1" ;)
  • PianoMastR64 - June 2, 2014 10:05 a.m.

    I'd like to extend that to... "This is my house. I automatically reserve the right to be player 1 unless stated otherwise by me."

    I'd like to add something to the "most unpopular gets the worst controller," namely that among my mates our rule was "the person best at the current game gets the worst controller." It adds a nice handicap and also ensures that the problem of winners staying on too long isn't an issue. Great call on the NPC and alternate path routes. Glad it's not just me. I'd also add "always run left" at the start of platform levels.

    #4 should be amended. No, don't bother typing good game at the end of a game unless you feel like it. And if you do, DON'T EVER type "gg." Type out "Good Game," and you'll avoid looking like a lazy jackass.

    Well put.

    I haven't been in much of the situations here, but I certainly understand the notion here... as a seasoned computer gamer, it really gets on my nerve when other people do not understand the common courtesy when playing games and using the internet.

    We always had to have a different rule instead of winner stays on because the skill gap between the majority of our friends and me and one of my best friends was always to much. In gears 2 I was untouchable and the second guy ruled at quake. Whenever we played it would always be second play switched out and if 1st got it two games in a row he was switched out for the round.

    I think winding your mates up when they are clearly struggling on a difficult section. It can be funny at first but eventually you could get a controller in the face.
  • cesar-augusto-valdes-munoz - February 26, 2014 10:42 a.m.

    well, when I play with a good friend I usually pick the shittiest control as a show of courtesy
  • antiAntag0nist - February 26, 2014 6:12 a.m.

    Oh man, I had that crappy N64 controller in the picture! You always have to pass the controller in large MP sessions. If you're the loser, you can't hold onto the pad out of anger, you just seem like a dick in that situation. Younger kids don't understand that, but they will eventually learn how the process works.

    Actually, some people take "gg" as "Get good" if you use it when you absolutely stomp someone. I had someone get really offended when I sent them a gg after a very long battle where I constantly killed them. I stopped using gg after that. Instead I only do it back to other people when they say it.

    Eh I ignore rule 4, if a game was horrible, I'm not to afraid it was horrible. (Logically speaking...)
  • isturbo1984 - February 25, 2014 11:06 p.m.

    Friends use to come over, 4 brothers at a time, the little one always had to use the ex's pink controller, lol
  • Elgyem - February 25, 2014 2:57 p.m.

    No screenpeeking and no evasion-boosting moves are at the top of my list. Also, no stalling when there are other people who want your controller.
