Quotes: “Stop Having Fun” Guys

"Once I too was a trainer who had fun during my battles... So you see having fun in battle is foolhardy. A perfect win... that is a Pokémon Trainer's duty."

Gabe: He just killed fifty people with a knife! Okay? That is the last person who should have The Bomb! He's no Modern Warrior. He's a fucking psychopath!

Tycho: Double Shotgun Dude is a dog rapist. On this point, there is consensus.

"I don't care if it's just a game, there still need to be some standards involved. Filling the Pokedex is an optional part of the game that has no actual reward to it, so the only reason to do it is for personal satisfaction. And if you can be satisfied by having other people do a significant amount of the work for you, then your standards are pretty low. Who cares if it's just a game? Either do something right or don't do it at all."
— A GameFAQs user on what he thinks about completing the Pokedex by trading.

"NO ITEMS! FOX ONLY! FINAL DESTINATION!"
Internet meme regarding Super Smash Bros. Melee... and Brawl, for that matter.

King Dedede: Brawl, huh? Meh. Too bad it doesn't stack up to a game made in 2001. It's floatier than Melee, you can't combo as well, it's way too easy to recover, they took out wavedashing, the air dodge is simplified and the tripping, come on! Definitely a weaker follow-up to Melee. What a shame. Poor, naive Kirby. You don't have a clue.

Kirby: I can make Mario fight Sonic!

"Fun is just a buzzword when you can't actually think of any real reasons as to why the game is good, don't use it. Either way, being amused or entertained with something and being immersed are not the same thing."

Reggie: Well, he certainly stomps off like a pro.

Dickstabbers is, to me, a humorous way to differentiate between Joe Casual and the hardcore speedsters who, given the choice between fucking the prom queen to shave 1.1 turns off of a run or stabbing their dong to shave 2.3 turns off of their run, will sigh regretfully and pull out their dickknives.

Amethyst: Whaaaa?! Here it comes! *Is splashed by the remaining balloons* Aaah, it feels good to lose!
Pearl: *Ahem*, I certainly hope that's not the attitude you have during battle.
