    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.

    well, when I play with a good friend I usually pick the shittiest control as a show of courtesy

    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...)

    Friends use to come over, 4 brothers at a time, the little one always had to use the ex's pink controller, lol

    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.

    The absolute worst is when you are playing multiplayer, and someone skips over a cutscene because they've seen it before or don't care. Maybe everyone has not seen it, or want to see it again! So frustrating!

    You forgot the all-important rule of online gaming, that everyone is gay.
  • P0ck3tC1am - February 25, 2014 2:44 p.m.

    that and they had this super orgy with my mother and or grandmother. and if they out gun you-blame it on Lag.
  • treeroy - February 25, 2014 2:45 p.m.

    Yeah, and if the lag excuse doesn't work then they're hacking.
  • P0ck3tC1am - February 25, 2014 5:45 p.m.

    or on servers.

    3 feels very outdated for SOME games. Game design is not the same anymore, and nowadays developers seem rather scared that players will miss content and will just string the whole thing together, even if the game is not exactly linear. I experienced this a lot with the original Borderlands and Bioshock Infinite, for example. There is rarely a place that you can go to now that you won't HAVE to go later because of story missions or side-questing. Also, if you have your friends over for some friendly local multiplayer, the host should always use the worst controller. Precisely to avoid the uncomfortable event described in the article...
  • MetallicaDan - March 4, 2014 3:03 p.m.

    I agree, especially if the worst controller is broken... Why should I suffer a guest because you can't keep your controllers in proper working conditions, right?
