I don't know wether to laugh or cry. Really.

I mean, it's just so blatant; they don't even hide their shame. I guess it goes completely along w/ the times we live in, but please spare me a bit a dignity while doing this.

Just 'cause you've played Final Fantasy 8 or Quake 3 a few times doesn't make you a gamer. Entering a contest like this makes you an attention ***** (I know that word will be blocked, but it's being used in the correct sense. Sorry, mods) to the perfect crowd for it: lonely geeks/gamers who think they can't get a date. They'll eat it up like Pocky.

It makes me queasy.

Did anybody notice that the UK site is quite a bit more PG than the US site? The women are actually wearing clothes, and the guys are pretty much headshots. Seems less shameless, but still shameless none-the-less.

Wow um well ya....

That's kinda sad, but then again it's kinda sad I can't get a bigger pic of some of the ladies. :D

----couple of quick one liners I thought of for this site

Definitely not about the games but I guess if thats what makes your joystick shake.

I remember back in the day when everyone was talking about their three inch floppies I thought I was the king cause I had 5 1/4.

Oh man I gotta stop thinking about pron and more about hardcore videogame violence. :p :cool:

I have noticed a greater acceptance of video gaming in the mainstream culture. It was not cool to play games a few years ago, but the wildly popular (and hyped) games like Halo, GTA series etc. allowed a greater exposure of video games to a wider audience. Of course when something is sucessful the powers that be (ie. corporations) have to b******ize the the very nature of video games and made it almost the trendy thing to do today. And now attention grabbing *****s (starts with a 'w', Oni used it) that got tired of the Environmentalist Movements, Green/Republican/Democrat parties, Anti-globalization protestors, Emo, psudeo-punk, PETA etc. try to draw the focus up themselves to make up for their empty, useless lives.

In shorter words: video games are quickly becoming the skateboarding/snowboarding (and other 'extreme' sports) of the late 90's. :rolleyes:

"Look at me! I'm pretty and holding a giagantic xbox controller between my butt cheeks!" :rolleyes:


Play games for fun and for no other reason.

Looks like a bunch of dorks took pics of their ladies, who they think are hot.

There are a few decent ones, but I can't figure out how the topless red head (the good looking one) is getting like a 5 out of 10. What is it? Are all the ugly chick voting over and over against the decent ones?

Are they actually going to make the winner play and beat a game to recieve the final price? I'm not to worried about the T-shirts, if they want to take their tops off for a $2 shirt... well, I have a whole closet full;)


Anyway, seeing hot chicks anywhere is cool with me, too bad all those double baggers were cluttering up the site... and I think one was a dude!

yeah its weird how sad people get at times. We all know gameing isnt a real chick magnet so why are thy trying to make it be that way. Kinda like the PGL, its gaming not a sport. I hope that PGL is never considred a sport, like cheerleading.

Cheerleadings a sport?

Thats gross. Its a F***ing beauty contest.

Calling cheerleading a sport makes real sports, like sailing, a bad rep.



LOL I can make fun of cheerleaders because I'm 99.9% sure there aren't any here.

LOL. You'd get my vote. I think it would be good if we put one our own people there as an canditate and then get the whole forums worth of ppl to vote him/her to victory. Just so when she/he wins, she or he could deliver them a poverful peace of our minds about what's going on.
And ofcourse deny the price, if someone would do this and still take the price it would kind of take off the edge of the blade.
