    Non Gamers say the darnedest things,

    yep it one of these thread, shall a story of a non-game-playing relative and or friend and revel in the hilarity, here's mine.

    my brother comes over and kicks me off my pc to play battlefield 2142, I sigh and leave him to it, I go to make a sandwich and he starts screaming that I have broken my own computer, somehow, it happens that he got hit with an emp grenade and how that works out is that your monitor looks likes its broken, dodgy image, lines across the screen you get it, he berates he saying I make broken the computer, failing to look back at the screen to see what happens

    Me: So you're telling me I broke my computer while out of the room making a sandwich while YOU were using it.

    Him: thats beside the point, you've broken your computer.....

    have at it peoples

    Is he older than you?
    If yes, it makes him an idiot.

    There are a bunch of non-gamers in my class, they tell others to play World of Warcraft with them.

    Yeah, one of my flatmates is like that. One of my best friends and we have a lot in common but he can't comprehend that anything with sci-fi/fantasy elements in it might actually be a good game.

    My old roommate calls every console a Nintendo. As in "hey, do you want to play Castle Crashers on the Nintendo with me?".

    My little brother does the same thing. He asks me if he could play the 360 in my room by saying, "Can I play Nintendo in your room?" I say "Yes," and when he tries to turn on the Xbox, I tell him I didn't let him play that and he gets very confused. When he grows up, he'll understand...

    My little brother: "How can you play on this tv, it's to big and dumb."

    Refering to our brand new 46" LCD HDTV.

    Ever notice how almost all actors/actresses that are interviewed about gaming all say the same thing-- "I'm a huge gamer. Oh what games? Well I love the classics, I play mostly Pac-Man and/or Tetris". So lame, it's like they're taught that or something. Mostly see it when someone is interviewed on AOTS or are promoting a gaming related movie.

    I had a coworker who says he plays games ask me what I play games on. I said that I mostly play on my pc, to which he replies,

    "Psh, pc graphics suck, PS3 has the best graphics."

    Umm...hello? What do you think PS3 games are made on? PS3's?

    So I tell him it depends on if you have a shit graphics card, and he was like, "Have you seen PS3 games?"

    "Mmhmm...nevermind; you're stupid; this isn't worth my time.

    My mom used to call every game system 'playboy'.

    Mom: Are you going to take the playboy with you?
    Me: It's a gameboy OR a playstation.
    Mom: oh you and your gadgets.

    Well, at least she tries. lol.

    I think my favorite is when people find out I'm a gamer they always insist I tell them which games I play...and then they respond with "One time I played Mario/Pac-man/Tetris!".

    OR when I actually find someone that plays games I'll talk about what I'm currently buying/playing on Steam, and then at the end of my babbling they say "...what's Steam?".
