Computer Chess Game: Checkmate. Checkmate.
MacReady pours his drink into the computer tower, frying it
MacReady: Cheating bitch.
"You know how in most FPSs you're some sort of hybrid of man and refrigerator who can take the entire munitions dump to the face while the enemy all have armor made of whip cream and skulls made of cake? Well it seems going into this game everyone got their character sheets mixed up: The player can't survive more than a measly handfuls of bullet ripping though their flesh while the armored enemies can take so many rounds to the torso you'd think there'd be nothing left but a spinal column and the Corn Flakes they had for breakfast. They can spot you in pitch darkness even with your flashlight off, and they can shoot you from halfway to Neverland because their guns have magic accuracy that evaporates the instant you get your hands on them. I had to press quicksave more often than the fire button, and this was on Medium difficulty. I'd dread to this what the hardest difficulty is like. They probably give you a water pistol and replace all the enemies with fire-breathing golden lions."
"I swear that these games were programmed by The Joker."

"Oh, and to add insult to injury, Seth is generally regarded as one of the least effective player characters in the game. That's right: He's only awesome when he's computer-controlled. Because the computer is a cheap, cheating bastard."
The thing about video game basketball is that the computer decides whether or not the ball goes in when you shoot.

"Yeah, you know it's a Pokemon Let's Play if you get random criticals when you don't need them, your opponent gets them all the time at the most crucial moments, you don't catch Pokémon when they're in perfectly catchable ranges..."
"How the hell do you have a Dragonite at Level 49, you hacker?! It evolves at 55! This guy...I swear man, this guy hacks."
Bob: Matrix! Help!
Matrix: I can't! The rules are clear!
Bob: You're a renegade! CHEAT!
Matrix: Oh, right...
ReBoot, computer characters abusing the trope, again.
"Don't you know? 'CC' in Mario Kart refers to 'Cheating Capacity'. On 50cc, they have a much lower cheating capacity than on 150cc, where everyone but you is hacking to go max speed all the time."
