    It is in my book.

    That and the fact that:

    a) I spend all day posting here instead of work
    b) I'm sexually frustrated
    c) I have a small penis
    d) I repulse the opposite sex
    e) The highlight of my day is when I throw my hand into the selection bag of crisps, wondering what I'm going to get

    I don't have a GBA SP though.

    Of course not, you should be calling them a Donit!
    :o)



    Could someone clear up what exacly a donit is, with links to relavent threads:)

    I found the root of all donits:
    Some Guy

    Has anyone joined to an XBL server then placed their mic by the stereo and pumped out Chas N Dave to counteract those damn Yankee kids swearing? I reckon it'd learn 'em good.





    Brats.

    Sounds like someone might want to think about leaving the house sometimes. Remember, drinking is not a solo sport. Ever!

    I never drink when playing games it gives me a massive head ache and I just end up puking everywhere so hopefully that quashes that one :)

    Point is what is a nerd? Is it someone who playes games on his own? Or someone who gets mates round to play games with him? I dont know and I dont really care :)

    It wasn't so much that you called people nerds it's more to do with wtf do you expect on a gaming site.

    What's so wrong about gaming being a social activity and one with which you can enjoy a beer with your mates?

    tbh, i would love it if more of my friends busted out GBA's at gettogethers house parties etc. It would sure as hell beat sitting around chatting about football, that twat in the office that pissed them off that week and women they're never going to meet let alone 'shag the arse off'. Obviously not all the time but every now and again would be good.

    I think that's gotta rate as one of the best insults I've ever seen on here.

    Ah FeZZ, it's good to have you back. You've obviously not been reading the forum much or you wouldn't have written that. :)
    Yeah, otto has an Xbox now and has become an M$ fanboi :-)

    I was saying playing link up games with your mates 'round and a few beers is more social than someone alone in their home roaring at some other twat on the end of the line.

    If you have the kind of friends that all get around a table, take out some cold ones and then start playing on your gameboys, then you are nerds.
    And nerds don't drink beer.

    I was making an example. I enjoy playing single player console games with the odd game of two player Fifa. But yes I would consider playing videogames with real people next to you far more interesting than barking at some silly kids. Oh and FeZZ who mentioned sitting around a table with Gameboys? I haven't got a GB (yet)

    The GBA link-up feature is certainly interesting! You should have seen the nerds at the EG geekmeet Mario-karting each other. ;)

    MS talking defensively out of their arse as usual. Having bet the farm on XBL, they're probably beginning to realise that their focus groups consisting of Tycho, Gabe and a few Redmond Tribes clan geeks don't actually represent real people.

    Which is more popular, which has more potential: mobile handheld gaming, or console broadband multiplayer? It's bloody obvious, but if you need to see the proof, go and compare XBL sales figures to GBA-SP sales figures over a comparable period.

    You need to dig out that WWE thread and read the comments made by 'some guy'.

    edit - here, let me oblige

    *sigh* Congratulations FeZZ, how to win the neutrals round to your side of the argument, hit a gaming forum with gamer stereotypes (c) the Daily Mail. Nice one.

    Funny isn't it how one nerd's self-image is the opposite of another nerd's self-image?

    Yeah well no major change in my case, I still hate MS as much as ever and I haven't bought an Xbox. :) I'm also still *not* a Nintendo fanboy and if anything a bit less positive about them as I've not been enjoying their first party titles as much as I thought I would. Zelda I think was great but I honestly don't rate it *that* much better than Starfox Adventures, I prefer Skies of Arcadia to both, and I haven't bought Metroid and I won't be buying Warioland. So, yet again, please don't think my blinkered anti-Microsoft vitriol has anything to do with my Cube. It's just that I really, really don't like Microsoft. OK? :)
