The Gamer Zones (UPDATING)


This zone is designed for gamers that just want to have fun. You may be a recreation gamer if:

  • You only have one Xbox 360™, and it stays in the living room. For the most part.
  • You like to meet new people and talk about the latest movies, music, and (of course) video games.
  • You only venture into ranked games by accident.
  • You treat every day like Casual Friday.
  • You think keeping score is only fun when you're winning.
  • You are physically capable of leaving mid-game if you need A) food, B) a restroom, or C) to go to work.


The Pro gamer is the truely hardcore gamer, who is there to win. You may pro gamer if:

  • You automatically mute the "human beat box" gamers and you automatically boot the "trash-talking chucklehead" gamers.
  • You've actually won real prize money in videogame competitions.
  • You never play anything but ranked games, and your rank has never gone anywhere but up.
  • You check leaderboards for games that aren't even playable online.
  • You own griefer insurance. Which, if you don't have it, is quite a deal and I would be happy to assist you if it existed.


The family zone is one for those 'kids of all ages' hang out. You may be a family gamer if:

  • You require a parent and/or guardian to set up your Xbox LIVE account.
  • You're playing a game with your Mom/Grandma/rich Aunt and want to maintain a wholesome atmosphere.
  • Covenant Brutes give you nightmares, literally.
  • You have kids, are a kid, or never stopped being a kid.
  • You knitted four matching wireless controller cozies, one for each member of your household. With love, of course.


The underground is where anything goes. You may be a undeground gamer if:

  • You are the "human beat box" or "trash-talking chucklehead" (and proud of it).
  • You rock with extreme vengeance and other totally intense buzzwords.
  • People shout "griefer!" and you say "Yeah, whaddaya want?"
  • You take out whole teams online. Including your team.
  • You'd rather get revenge than win.
