(Because you *do* want to help people when you use that phrase, right? You’re not just using it because you like to feel superior over people for *checks notes* not being very good at video games, I hope!)

For those who just don’t get it - “git gud” is condescending, unhelpful, and mean spirited. There are millions of better ways to help someone with a game that doesn’t immediately suggest superiority and elitism. Basically, git gud at using language.

Games are great, and I love how they test you on all sorts of different skills - but the fact that you can be “good” or “bad” at them is a major contributing factor to the absolute swamp that is gaming culture.

I hate the phrase / meme “git gud”. When your response to any discussion on difficulty, accessibility, etc is just “you suck, get better”, you’re probably a butthole. Filtered out of my YT comments and is an instant block on here

About a 50/50 split between “This was great!” and “God I hated that!” Good when it’s adding variety and surprise - but not when it’s asking you to excel at new gameplay types that haven’t been properly introduced!

Do you remember when games would just throw the most random stuff at you? Like, this level’s a twin-stick shooter! Okay, now it’s a racing game! Collect chickens! The boss fight is Guitar Hero!

Enjoying the sniper assassin challenges in Hitman 2. Figuring out how to get your targets into a good spot, and then finding the perfect vantage point, is a great little puzzle.

*Important* update - the man is in fact wearing fake tattoo sleeves. His arms are naked when Agent 47 nicks his clothes. Case… closed.

How does PUBG on PS4 look like a free-to-play Android game. Like a PC shooter from 1998. Like I’ve set all the graphics options to “Miserable”.

I took a guy’s disguise in Hitman 2 and my girlfriend was like “wait, how did he steal his tattoos?! Did he peel off his skin?” and I mean, it’s a good question…

I had to watch a livestream archive of the Game Awards with some dude in the corner being like “oh an indie game, okay I’m just gonna talk over this trailer”.
