    Typically anything that Jerry Holkins writes in the Penny Arcade newsposts. I like Jerry, and Penny Arcade, a lot - but some of the terms he uses to describe games... it makes me hate him a bit. For example, this, from earlier in the week:
    f you have played Monday Night Combat, you know that it's not just good, but genuinely important. It breeds an emerging genre and a familiar one with such deftness that you can make a lateral move from almost any action skillset.
    Fuck you.

    I'm not against literary flourish by any means, but I'd probably go as far as to say Jerry abuses language, especially where games are concerned.
