Gary's Mod: Buried AliveA brief description to shed some light on what is happening in the above video: Gary's Mod is a game that is made using the Half Life 2 engine. Not a "game" per se, but it allows players to just fool around with the engine and make some amazing environments to play in.BUY @ amazon
Once any thing is accessible to everyone on such a wide scale, though, pretty damn annoying interactions start happening almost instantly.
The only way to negate an extremely vocal 9 year-old*? Box him in anyway possible.
*He's the shadowy figure that has been rightfully placed in a time out, not the person "filming" it.
Xbox 360 Kinect: Griefing the Next GenerationWhen the Kinect came out it was being touted as the next generation of family entertainment. What they should have said was that it would be a new way to torment your younger brother.BUY @ amazon
It would've sold a lot better, that'd for damn sure. And then maybe then we'd have something a little better than dancing games and stuff that makes you look like you have vertigo while you're playing it.
For those of you that have not had the opportunity to play with a Kinect, let me give you a run down. The way the sensor works is that it bathes the room in infra-red dots that the camera on the machine picks up and uses to create an in-game model of yourself.
If it's a two player game, each player has to stand shoulder length apart or else it will mold you together and get really confused.
So when the Weasley family here all gather behind little Ron, it causes the game to go haywire. Granted, the view of them griefing their little brother is probably more entertaining than seeing what is actually happening in the game, but that's true about most games on the Kinect in general.
Modern Warfare 2: Knife PartyAh war. Fighting day after day.BUY @ amazon
Not knowing when you are going to meet the person who has the bullet with your name on it. It can get intense. Sometimes it gets so intense that there is nothing you can do but go a little crazy and start knifing anyone in your way.
Going on a knifing spree is what people do when they're drunk and about to ADD-quit a round of multiplayer.
This is a simple, yet effective, and ultimately hilarious way to grief/troll that's pretty funny on video, but absolutely nerve-wracking and horrific if you're subject to it.
It takes kind of a bit of skill to not get killed with this tactic too.
Tip of that hat to this asshole.
Team Fortress 2: Communications ErrorOne of the best things about multiplayer games is getting to be on a team and running through combat strategies on the fly. Having your team leader assign tasks and sectors. Responding to distress calls from fallen teammates. Hollering in victory when you win.BUY @ amazon
Of course, that becomes difficult when the enemy decides that they are going to just keep forcing the game to notify that they are taking your base. Over and over and over and over and over again.
Modern Warfare 3: Trolling EditionThis video demonstrates one of the most highly utilized forms of griefing performed in games today: The In-Team Kill.BUY @ amazon
Pretty much exactly how it sounds, team killing is, surprise surprise, when you kill members of your own team.
It's the ultimate betrayal an the way that complete assholes get their rocks off. It's never fun for anyone and, after you've been waiting for a while in the lobby, it makes you want to actually kill whoever thinks this is fun. It ruins the game.
And if you think this you're 100% in the right. There's nothing that says that you're wrong. But it's impossible to complain about someone doing this without sounding like a 7 year old saying "but mo-o-o-o-m... he's ruining the ga-a-a-a-a-ame!".
In the Modern Warfare series, the best way to go about that is to either take out your team members before the clock is done counting down, or just shoot your RPG into the group, wiping everyone out and getting booted from that game.
... worth it?
