I am a gamer. I like video games… they’re fun, bright and colorful (if you’re not playing some military FPS thing…), and they keep me entertained… oh, and for all you males… there are tits too. Along with that I read a lot, play music (or more specifically teaching myself to play a piano/keyboard), write (obviously), do nature photography, and a whole list of other things whenever the mood strikes me. But if you asked I’d say I’m a gamer.

I have a competitive streak. Do I like to win? Of course I do, anybody that has a competitive streak does, but it’s not the underlying reason I like to play. I like the challenge. If I’m playing against somebody else winning doesn’t mean anything to me if you don’t put up a fight. I like the challenge more then winning. That brings me to the point of this little article…

I played a flash game the other day called Scuba. I was bored, it looked interesting. I actually played it twice because I forgot to take a screen shot of the high scores.

I had a time of 23:45, that’s minutes and seconds. I was expecting to have a time closer to 30 minutes the second time around, so I did pretty good. Yea… until you see the high scores.


I call the first 3 complete and utter BULLSHIT! I’d even be willing to guess that 4-6 are BS also but I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt. The first 3 are cheating outright!

A lot of people cheat, game genie and gameshark were designed for games specifically so you could cheat! But then you’re not posting your scores for everybody to see either!

I honestly don’t give a flying fuck if you cheat, a ton of people do it, the first 20 entries on the score are probably people cheating, the difference is they’re doing it believably!

You made your score 2 seconds! Are you trying to prove how big and bad you are? Cause we all know you are the All Mighty and can do things physically impossible. It’s really not that impressive anymore. Perhaps you could make some furries instead, at least that would be interesting to watch. Are you trying to compensate for something? You’re doing it a little too much hun… cause uhhhhh, making your score that good just makes it look like you need a magnifying glass and a pair of tweezers to go to the bathroom!!!!

You’re one of those idiots that want to win, just to win, and you don’t care what you have to do to finish first. Good thing it’s just a video game and not a race or we might see you whipping out a gun and killing everybody ahead of you. You’d win with everybody running away screaming in horror as you cross the finish line covered in your deceased opponent’s blood. And, as the cops take you away, you could go “Yea… I killed them, but I won!”

This has been Gwen. Your pissed off, non-cheating redhead. And I’m gonna find these guys a pair of tweezers.
