Phrases Every True Gamer Has Heard

Gamers have their own language; whether it is just a word or an entire phrase. Over the years of gaming players have learned to catch on to these words and phrases and actually use them, or something similar, in games every day. When you join a few multiplayer matches, do you not hear the word “noob” screamed over your headset? After jumping from game to game with a group of friends, do they not accuse of lag once you have won a few in a row. It is things like these that not only annoy other gamers but it unites us as a community.
