I'm a LetsPlay[=er=] who records himself killing people in a video game, makes barely-coherent commentary over it, then fucks off for two years before doing it again.


----
!!Kadorhal provides examples of:
* ActorRoleConfusion: I (semi-jokingly) go through with this in regards to my ''VideoGame/{{Postal}}'' [=LPs=]. I claimed "a Postal Dude knockoff is who I am now" in the description for one of my first additions to the Steam Workshop (a dictionary for ''[[VideoGame/TheHouseOfTheDeadOverkill Typing of the Dead: OVERKILL]]'' that includes Postal Dude phrases).
* TheAlcoholic: Looking through old works I made, it seems every other self-insert I made was this. It seems I honestly believed I would become this - ironically enough, now that I am old enough to drink, the only things I can stand are non- or just barely-alcoholic.
* ArcNumber: 23, which I have personally seen affect reality.
* AuthorAppeal: Analogies, especially to point out how stupid I think something is, though since it's a cold day in Hell when anyone ever actually reads anything I say (and even rarer for them to actually parse it, almost impossible to actually respond to it, and a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence for them to turn out to have parsed it ''correctly''), I've got no real idea whether I'm actually good at making them, thus having to assume that, like everything else, I'm bad at them.
* BetterThanABareBulb: I tend to endlessly lampshade things other people do in chats rather than actually add to the conversation in a meaningful way. This is probably why I never feel welcome in such chats.
* CatchPhrase: Usually when I notice I've ended up with one, I end up [[AbandonedCatchphrase never saying it again under any circumstances]]. There's a few that have stuck around, though:
** "I CAN SEE FOREVER", typed in all-caps when [[GoodBadBugs the camera in a game clips through a wall or someone forgot to place a texture and subsequently lets me see through things I'm not supposed to be able to see through]]. This is [[WalkingTechbane a surprisingly common occurrence]].
** [[Website/SomethingAwful ":V"]], to the point that Steam groups I'm in had to implement rules against overuse of emoticons to get me to stop spamming that.
*** "The only good emoticons are Something Awful's emoticons" or a variation came up whenever I was shown a non-SA emoticon for the longest time. This dropped off since I discovered Steam emoticons which tend to actually be pretty good, though I still brought up the possibility of a Something Awful-based game to bring Something Awful emoticons to Steam approximately twice a month for a while after.
** "sup bitch", for characters in a video showing up when they really shouldn't be there (e.g. [[https://youtu.be/rxZaoLovUGY?t=414 a Tauntaun in the hangar at the end of Hoth]] in ''Jedi Academy'', [[https://youtu.be/mPQyCcO2_F8?t=349 a cow falling from the sky right next to the camera]] in ''Paradise Lost'').
* {{Discontinuity}}: I'd like to pretend nothing that happened to me during 2007 actually happened, except for the bits involving ''[[VideoGame/ReturnToCastleWolfenstein Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory]]'', Wiki/{{Uncyclopedia}}, and UsefulNotes/{{Steam}}. I don't remember why that is anymore - or if any of the above things even happened then and not in 2006 or 2008 - so I guess that means it's working.
* TheEeyore: Feeling like I'm "the ButtMonkey of the entire universe" sounds about right, though not so much the actual "bringing everyone down" bit (if only because even I realize it gets real annoying real fast). An old Steam friend even once mentioned that they had nicknamed me "Eeyore".
* FanHater: Of the ''Postal'' fanbase for a period, over some feigned superiority I had over them from actually having ''played'' the game rather than simply reading about it fifth-hand (watching [=LPs=] of it didn't count, because the only one I knew about was my own and we all know nobody watched that). Dropped off around 2012 when GOG and Steam both got ''Postal 2'', so all those fans I hated were suddenly able to redeem themselves by, y'know, actually playing the game.
* FollowTheLeader: I've dabbled in a little bit of everything, mostly due to seeing someone else do something and becoming popular through it and deciding "hey yeah I could do that too". This almost always results in [[DarthWiki/SoBadItsHorrible things that should not exist]], followed by me giving up on it after a month or two. Even the things I do stick with ([=LPs=] and skins for flight sims nobody plays, primarily) are more for the fun I manage to derive from simply putting them together; a strange refusal to do any real self-promotion (ignore making a trope page for that shitty Gmod comic nobody read) and still not being any good at anything means I could not possibly make a popular thing, no matter how much I may want or try to.
* GratuitousGerman: I tend to sprinkle German phrases into my sentences (particularly variations on "ja", "nein", or "danke"), ever since playing a ton of ''Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory'' with my buddies. Has since been dropping off, save for "danke", because I'm too lazy (and stupid) to learn any more German beyond that.
* HitlerAteSugar: I am the Hitler of opinions. If I like something, you are legally required to make fun of me for it. No, you can keep liking it if you already do, [[DoubleStandard that's perfectly fine and in no way a problem to anyone]]. But if you haven't heard of it or decided on an opinion about it yet then you're not allowed to ever like it, because then you'll be like me, AndThatsTerrible for some reason.
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: I've had to almost entirely give up on actually adding friends over Steam because the kind of people I like the most end up being the ones that ''dis''like me the most (and that's assuming they're one of the 5% that doesn't just decline the request immediately; even then they'll only read two or three sentences of mine and then start ignoring me for the rest of the day). I similarly gave up on actually welcoming people on the Let's Play Forum pretty early on, because the people that gave me the best first impressions were always either the first to never make a second post (if I was lucky) or to get themselves banned because a single easy-to-follow rule that any other forum worth its salt has [[RantInducingSlight was apparently the last damn straw]].
* {{Keet}}: When I'm among a group of people I like and am enjoying myself, I definitely show it. [[{{Deconstruction}} The problem here]] is that it's almost guaranteed to mean those people don't like me back, because my "best" is a loud and annoying attention hog.
* MortonsFork:
** I'd been having a recurring issue where running just about any program on my computer causes my connection to kill itself. My only choices to deal with are either ignore the issue, thus leaving it to continue, or try to fix it, at which point it will just come back a week later for an entirely different (and possibly contradictory) reason that nevertheless causes the exact same problem.
** It seems to have since evolved into computer problems in general now that I've actually kind of fixed it. Basically, I am not allowed to have a 100% functional computer, because that will break the universe or something. That or objects are all sentient and even they don't want anything to do with me.
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: Always, ''always'' the Zoidberg - even the people who actually ''do'' like me (as opposed to just trying to be nice to everyone) always forget about me.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: My old character [=WolfZword=] was a [[HalfHumanHybrid half-human half-wolf]] with [[GunsAkimbo dual]] [[HandCannon Desert]] [[CommonMarySueTraits Eagles and a five-ton sword]], created by science, who somehow became a kitsune, had a kid who [[ComicBookTime became 20 in about three weeks]] and tried to kill him for being a shitty parent, lost his left arm in a fight and got a [[{{Magitek}} magic]] [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist automail]] replacement, used a lot of dark magic in a fight against [[VideoGame/{{Earthbound}} Giygas]] and gained a SuperpoweredEvilSide who could [[EnemyWithout appear anywhere he wanted]], got hired by the [[VideoGame/{{Doom}} UAC and started killing zombies and demons as a job]], learned how to control and then gave up [[Franchise/StarWars the Force]], twice, died in a weird [[VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork internet accident]], [[UnexplainedRecovery came back a week later with his natural left arm back]], learned how to control the Force yet again, built a pair of [[VideoGame/UnrealTournament Enforcer pistols]] with [[VideoGame/SeriousSam techno-magic ammo replenishers]] [[BottomlessMagazines built in]], attempted a brief anti-[[Franchise/KingdomHearts keyblade user]] [[FanHater campaign]], turned into a [[VideoGame/BloodyRoar Zoanthrope]] with the help of his MadScientist friend, built an [[VideoGame/HalfLife HEV suit]] with [[VideoGame/MetalGear stealth]]-[[VideoGame/SplinterCell oriented]] modifications, and then fused with his dark half after it basically blew itself up trying to control a magic crystal that had been in the above-mentioned sword, resulting in [[VideoGame/DevilMayCry an automatic ammo-regeneration power]], NighInvulnerability, and actual magic at the cost of his Force-sensitivity, [[RunningGag again.]] And now you know why the very name [=WolfZword=] is an OldShame I never use anywhere anymore. I was going to {{reset|Button}} the character and try to be [[{{Understatement}} a little less ridiculous]][[note]]If I ever do anything with him again, I think I'm going to ignore just about everything except the ammo-regeneration (always able to pull a new full magazine for whatever weapon is in his hands out of nowhere) and the invulnerability (not permanently killable, but easier to kill than a normal person would be in return)[[/note]], but I stopped roleplaying entirely before I got around to it.
** If there's any consolation, said character had [[FunnyAfro a bright, giant blue afro]] between having a kid and the zoanthrope thing, a period that lasted about two or three years. Also, for some reason now that I typed all that I'm suddenly interested in the character again, if only because he fits perfectly into ''VideoGame/SaintsRow''.
* SadClown: I believe the period in which I was as funny as I could be was in my mid-teens, shortly after having moved from a school where the majority of the other students made fun of me, the teachers never cared[[note]]they only saw my angry over-reactions to the insults; they never saw a cause (or agreed with the students that I didn't belong and so deliberately ignored it), [[SarcasmMode which clearly meant there wasn't one]][[/note]], and the few friends I did have abandoned me because people started making fun of them too (can't say I blame them for that one, but it's still a little depressing to know that being friends with me isn't worth even a little name-calling). I attribute it to having briefly gone the funny kind of insane from both having to deal with all that, having no idea why it was happening or how to make it stop, for at least four years, and the sudden realization that it was over. When the people at my new school decided after less than a month that they didn't like me either (they [[MistakenForGay pretended I was gay]] so they had an excuse to make fun of me when I started going there, and then pretended I had threatened to bomb the school in the last few months - at the very least someone apologized for that one pretty quickly, and on a day that had already been going particularly well for me no less), I pretty much gave up on socializing and, by extent, being funny.
* ScheduleSlip: I am ''incredibly'' lazy.
* SelfDeprecation: I have an incredibly low opinion of myself, as is probably obvious if you're somehow actually reading any of this, which [[MortonsFork both was caused by and exacerbates]] other people's already-low opinions of me.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: All the time. Either I'm completely detached from a group, thus nobody having any reason to care about me, or as soon as someone shows me some kindness I end up becoming overly clingy and annoying the shit out of them, thus giving them (and everybody else) more reasons to avoid me entirely.
* TheQuietOne: I don't talk very much, almost to the point of being TheVoiceless, mostly because I'm rarely engaged in conversation with people who care what I have to say.
* UnknownRival:
** As a joke, I see myself as this to Tehzim, the Something Awful goon [[http://lparchive.org/Postal-2/ who completed a Postal 2 LP]] while mine was on hiatus - to me, he's a rival for the title of [[SturgeonsLaw "only decent Postal 2 LP on Youtube"]] (I'm winning, of course), to him and the rest of Something Awful, even after joining the place myself I might as well not exist. [=DepressingDrawers=] would probably count from both sides - he'd obviously never heard of me before (or during, or after) doing his own LP of the game, but I'd never heard of him either until I was starting my ''AW'' LP and someone offhandedly mentioned him. Whoever else has done or is going to do ''Paradise Lost'' would be as well, though considering [[http://lparchive.org/Postal-2-Paradise-Lost/ my LP is the one that's on the Archive]] I'd like to imagine someone else would be the unknown party for once (a man can dream, right?).
** There's also a case with WebVideo/Civvie11, once again (and obviously) with me as the unknown party. Standout instances include the fact that Civvie got to voice in ''Postal 4'' after maybe one or two years of doing videos about the series, while I couldn't even get the most basic bugs in ''Paradise Lost'' fixed after ten, and that Civvie was a major contributor to a ''[[WebVideo/MattMcMuscles Wha Happun?]]'' about ''VideoGame/{{Blood}} II: The Chosen'' and its TroubledProduction, while I never got contacted or even had any of my footage borrowed for the video despite having discussed much of the same about the game's development [[https://lparchive.org/Blood-II-The-Chosen several months beforehand]].
* VitriolicBestBuds: I used to have the uncanny ability to find people who completely fucking hate each other, and somehow become friends with ''both'' of them without either demanding I remove the other or whatnot. It helps that I'm at least smart enough to not bother deliberately bringing them together for things or even talk about them with each other.
* WalkingTechbane: 95% of technology seems intent on doing the exact opposite of what it's supposed to do just to piss me off. This has included things such as computers forgetting the system drive is actually plugged in, or the drive itself forgetting that a necessary system component is still where it's supposed to be.
** Even video editing programs, the one thing I can usually get to work properly, are beginning to do this - convert parts of an .avi file to .gif in [=VirtualDub=], watch as it ''drops four-fifths of the frames while saving'' and still results in an overly-bloated file.
* WhatAnIdiot: Despite the name "[=WolfZword=]" being an OldShame, it is still my username pretty much everywhere I go that's not here or Something Awful. Even places that I know I signed up for long ''after'' T1m suggested the new name. Apparently, since the name was originally suggested as a name for a dark alter-ego-type character that I had (because of course I had a dark alter-ego-type character, I was a teenager in the mid-oughties), I'd decided for uses outside of that I'd continue using [=WolfZword=] for regular stuff and go by Kadorhal for "darker" or more "adult" things... which caused the above issue when I quickly decided, yeah, the new name was much better and I'm gonna just go by that.

* FollowTheLeader: I've dabbled in a little bit of everything, mostly due to seeing someone else do something and becoming popular through it and deciding "hey yeah I could do that too". This almost always results in [[DarthWiki/SoBadItsHorrible things that should not exist]], followed by me giving up on it after a month or two. Even the things I do stick with (LP's and skins for ''VideoGame/{{HAWX}}'' and ''VideoGame/VectorThrust'', primarily) are more for the fun I manage to derive from simply putting them together; a strange refusal to do any real self-promotion (ignore making a trope page for that shitty Gmod comic nobody read) and still not being any good at anything means I could not possibly make a popular thing, no matter how much I may want or try to.

* WhatAnIdiot: Despite the name "[=WolfZword=]" being an OldShame, it is still my username pretty much everywhere I go that's not here, the Let's Play Forum, or Something Awful. Even places that I know I signed up for long ''after'' T1m suggested the new name. Apparently, since the name was originally suggested as a name for a dark alter-ego-type character that I had (because of course I had a dark alter-ego-type character, I was a teenager in the mid-oughties), I'd decided for uses outside of that I'd continue using [=WolfZword=] for regular stuff and go by Kadorhal for "darker" or more "adult" things... which caused the above issue when I quickly decided, yeah, the new name was much better and I'm gonna just go by that.

* UnknownRival: As a joke, I see myself as this to Tehzim, the Something Awful goon [[http://lparchive.org/Postal-2/ who completed a Postal 2 LP]] while mine was on hiatus - to me, he's a rival for the title of [[SturgeonsLaw "only decent Postal 2 LP on Youtube"]] (I'm winning, of course), to him and the rest of Something Awful, even after joining the place myself I might as well not exist. [=DepressingDrawers=] would probably count from both sides - he'd obviously never heard of me before (or during, or after) doing his own LP of the game, but I'd never heard of him either until I was starting my ''AW'' LP and someone offhandedly mentioned him. Whoever else has done or is going to do ''Paradise Lost'' would be as well, though considering [[http://lparchive.org/Postal-2-Paradise-Lost/ my LP is the one that's on the Archive]] I'd like to imagine someone else would be the unknown party for once (a man can dream, right?).

** There's also a case with WebVideo/Civvie11, once again (and obviously) with me as the unknown party. Standout instances include the fact that Civvie got to voice in ''Postal 4'' after maybe one or two years of doing videos about the series, while I couldn't even get the most basic bugs in ''Paradise Lost'' fixed after ten, and that Civvie was a major contributor to a ''[[WebVideo/MattMcMuscles Wha Happun?]]'' about ''VideoGame/{{Blood}} II: The Chosen'' and its TroubledProduction, while I never got contacted or even had any of my footage borrowed for the video despite having discussed much of the same about the game's development [[https://lparchive.org/Blood-II-The-Chosen several months beforehand]].

* BerserkButton: Within the wiki, people generally having no clue how to actually write and format pages (to the point that I'd probably get edit-banned again if my edit reasons didn't disappear entirely if there's an F-bomb within them).
** Any mention of the alt-fire of ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'''s pistol was this for a long time, if only because everyone who did mention it on this wiki seemed to believe it was an intended feature that is still in the game, and not a glitch that was patched out one goddamned month after release.
** People attempting to namespace links in pages by just throwing Franchise/ in front of them instead of actually looking at where it's supposed to go. Especially when pages that don't have a Franchise namespace are namespaced to Franchise, while ones that ''do'' are ignored. '''Especially''' so for the ''Videogame/MetalGear'' series, since everybody apparently tripped over themselves to namespace every link to it under Franchise/, then fucked off entirely to leave me to do all the work when it came time to change them back to [=VideoGame/=].
** Outside of this wiki: People using rocket-propelled grenades (in particular the RPG-7) to kill me in video games even if I am the only person within the blast radius and not in a vehicle. Mostly because of very bad experiences in ''Call of Duty 4'''s singleplayer campaign. For that matter, having to use the RPG-7 at all, typically because [[ATeamFiring it's inaccurate as hell]] [[FollowTheLeader simply because Call of Duty 4's RPG-7 was]].
** People with [[SmallNameBigEgo egos bigger than my own]], though since my own ego is, despite all the SelfDeprecation, pretty damn big at times, this rarely comes up with people who I am actually able to lay the verbal smack-down on.
** Blatant cheating in multiplayer games, particularly, again, ''Call of Duty'' - it's pretty hard to enjoy class-based multiplayer and gradually unlocking new weapons when, no matter what set-up you pick, you're killed by someone that always knows where you are and kills you in a single shot to any part of the body from any range with any weapon.
*** Weapons being [[ArbitraryGunPower randomly made useless]] or [[CommonplaceRare impossible to obtain]] compared to their real-world versions, primarily since [[WeaponOfChoice the ones I really like]] seem to be the sole targets of this sort of thing[[note]]The M14 in particular is almost always a victim of the latter case - in the last few years it's been a PreOrderBonus that [[PermanentlyMissableContent stayed that way]] (''VideoGame/GhostRecon: Future Soldier'' - getting to use it for the ten seconds of gameplay in the prologue and then disappearing entirely - even when every ''other'' pre-order gun is used by enemies or available in the occasional weapon crate - just rubbed it in, and is why I'm fairly certain Ubisoft hated me specifically for some reason), only available in multiplayer at an absurdly high level (''VideoGame/CallOfDuty 4'', ''VideoGame/PAYDAYTheHeist''; VideoGame/{{PAYDAY 2}} has more than made up for the latter, though), only available in one level for five minutes (''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps'' - probably the least-offensive example here though, since it's an early unlock that surprisingly isn't completely outclassed by a later weapon in multiplayer), only available in one level or a game mode where literally anything else would be a better choice (''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2'', [[VideoGame/NaziZombies Zombies mode]] - again, seems to be a specific jab at me, since Create-a-Class in campaign would have otherwise let me use it all I wanted [at least there's two variations on the FAL for me to use instead]), a combo of all of the above (''VideoGame/ModernWarfare 2'' - scopeless Mk 14 in a Spec Ops level that is very cramped, late unlock in multiplayer where cheating is beyond rampant; ''[[VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOpsIII Black Ops III]]'', only available through Supply Drops going on for one month that are most likely never going to be repeated now that ''[[VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps4 BOIIII]]'' is out, though since Treyarch are still the bro-est of the [=CoD=] developers there is at least a Garand clone to try to get instead), or the developers [[{{Troll}} specifically adding it and making it relatively easy to access]] because they know I'm ''not'' going to buy their game (every non-Treyarch ''Call of Duty'' since ''[[VideoGame/CallOfDutyGhosts Ghosts]]'', because apparently I specifically hurt their feelings for calling them out on [[PropRecycling cannibalizing the remains]] of ''Modern Warfare'' instead of trying to make actual new games, even though I never made any points against them that weren't made by other people)[[/note]].
* BeyondTheImpossible: Inversion with extraordinary sniper/marksman shots made in video games; two are listed in order under ImprobableAimingSkills, with the first being the first I ever made and the second being about a year or two later. A third shot, just two weeks after the second, was simply two [[VideoGame/KillingFloor Clot headshots]] with a single revolver bullet, [[GoodBadBugs which somehow gave me an achievement for an entirely different weapon]].



** On this wiki, a short "Thank you" potholed to DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment was my typical response when someone decides that whatever example I just added needs to have all of its facts restated a second time (seriously, why do we suddenly heavily believe ViewersAreMorons?) until I decided to just be quiet about it.
*** There's also now "copy and paste is not your friend", since tropers seem to think simply copying/cutting and pasting text is all that's necessary to fix something - often resulting in parts of the example left behind where they used to be and completely nonsensical syntax (stop acting like chatbots).



** OnTheNextEpisodeOfCatchphrase: "Next time, <one-sentence, if not one-word, summary of what will happen in the next level>." Usually followed with "I'll see you then", though sometimes I'll say something else, such as noting "I'm sure the results will surprise you" at the end of Thursday of ''Paradise Lost'', after the last two days ended with an attempt on the Postal Dude's life by the very same people he'd been doing errands for the entire day.
* ContinuityNod: A lot of things my friends and I make refer to other things we've done before, [[ContinuityLockout regardless of whether the intended audience gets it or not]] (which is to be expected from in-jokes between a group of friends).
** Among my LP's, ''Postal 2'' shines as the most frequently-referenced, partly for being the only good subtitled one I've made. [[{{Foreshadowing}} Even before I actually did it I was referencing it.]]
* CueTheFlyingPigs: As mentioned below, my ''Call of Duty 4'' LetsPlay was the first I actually finished. ''Postal 2'', started a year before it was and then on hiatus for nearly three, has finally joined it as a thing I have finished, and my classic ''Call of Duty'' thread also had timely updates ''with more than one video per update, '''without any delays before it was finished'''''. ''Jedi Academy'', though delayed half a year, joined that list later, followed by ''Paradise Lost'' only having one slight delay because I lost track of time when I was supposed to upload a late episode.



* {{Egopolis}}: Kadorholland, a fake country whose name is attached to every server I host for any game (which is not very many at all). A forum I regularly visit also has "Kadorhal Inc.", referring to how [[WalkingTechbane my computer(s) tend to malfunction in impossible ways]] in an attempt to stop me from [=LPing=] anything, which I've since used as a source for jokes regarding [[IncompetenceInc an actual company]].
* EverybodyRemembersTheStripper: As you can tell from the below quote, I'm the one who added the ''House of the Dead: OVERKILL'' example on that page.
--> '''Kadorhal:''' apparently the only song in the game anyone cares about is [[CrossesTheLineTwice the one dealing with making love to a mutant]] \\
'''{{Tropers/T1migi}}:''' why am i not surprised



* FanNickname: Thanks to association with a ''VideoGame/GranblueFantasy'' character a group of friends identify me with, I and that group have started referring to C4 and other such remote explosives as [[GratuitousJapanese "presentos"]].



* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: It's probably saying something that, not only do I have more friends over the Internet than in real life, but most of them are from northern Europe (particularly the Netherlands and British Isles) and Canada.
** Youtube analytics claim Denmark and Thailand are the non-English-speaking countries my videos are most popular in. It doesn't actually give any sort of data on ''how many'' viewers are from there, of course (that would be useful and is therefore banned from ever being a functionality for Youtube analytics), so for all I know it's just counting it because one person watched five seconds of a video, heard English audio, and went "[[RageQuit fuck, another American]]".
* GratuitousGerman: I tend to sprinkle German phrases into my sentences (particularly variations on "ja", "nein", or "danke"), ever since playing a ton of ''Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory'' with my buddies. Has since been dropping off, save for "danke", because I'm too lazy (and bad at learning new languages) to learn any more German beyond that.
* GunPorn: I should probably be scaring myself with how much I know about firearms, particularly pistols, considering I've only had the chance to fire real guns one time and I'm pretty sure I never hit the target once. Not that it really matters much, since, like everything else I show more than a passing interest in, nobody gives a shit.

* HurricaneOfPuns: ''Every'' interaction with T1m results in this, enough that I've got a text file of multiple hilarious things we've said to each other, starting around mid-2007 or 2008.
* IHaveManyNames: [[OldShame WolfZword]], [[CaptainObvious Kador]][[WebAnimation/UnforgottenRealms hal]], [[VideoGame/{{Blood}} Caleb]] [[Manga/{{Trigun}} Wolfwood]], [[VideoGame/HalfLife Gordon]] [[PunnyName Threemen]], plus different ways to shorten "Kadorhal"...

'''Me:''' oh for a second I forgot my name's not [[VideoGame/HouseOfTheDead Agent G]] anymore. [[VerbalTic :V]]\\
'''Friend:''' ...I did too, actually.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: In VideoGame/{{ARMA}} 2, I once shot down a Hind with a single bullet to the engine with a Barrett M107. This has been referenced at least once as the single most awesome thing I have ever done.
** Later there was a shot with an M21 in ''Call of Duty 4'', where I nailed two headshots with a single bullet. Granted, killing two people with one sniper bullet is an actual challenge in that game, so I can't be the only one who got that lucky with it.
** I was on the receiving end of such a shot a month or so after the above: on the very same map I made my M21 shot in, while trying to crawl across a bridge to avoid snipers, I decided to just get up and dash across at the halfway point, only to [[AccidentalAimingSkills immediately stand up right between an enemy sniper and an ally he was aiming for]].
** At one point while using the auto-shotgun in ''VideoGame/HouseOfTheDead: OVERKILL'', I managed to acquire a [[KillStreak Goregasm]] and hold onto it by never missing a shot again for nearly ten minutes. This included throughout the boss fight against something that teleports and is very rarely on-screen.
** ARMA II again: I once managed to shoot down ''and destroy'' a Hip with a single bullet to the ''rear rotor''. Since then, I went into the editor and did some tests to find out how to best take out Russian choppers with small arms.
** Back to ''Call of Duty 4'', there was one occasion, again on the same map as the above (Overgrown), I managed to get the kills to call in a helicopter, and it proceeded to make nothing but headshots on every enemy it bothered to shoot.
* {{Keet}}: When I'm among a group of people I like and am enjoying myself, I definitely show it. [[{{Deconstruction}} The problem here]] is that it's almost guaranteed to mean those people don't like me back, because my "best" is loud and annoying.
* LetsPlay: I do these now. Games I've done include ''VideoGame/{{Blood}} 2'' (unfinished), ''VideoGame/{{Postal}} 2'' (finished after two years of hiatus), ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty [[VideoGame/ModernWarfare 4]]'' (took a year to finish), ''Blood'' (alongside [=CoD4=], unfinished), ''Call of Duty 1'' and ''2'' (finished in a timely fashion), ''VideoGame/JediKnightJediAcademy'' (also took a year to finish, though for different reasons), ''Postal 2: [[{{Sequelitis}} Apocalypse Weekend]]'' (finished after ignoring it for two months), ''VideoGame/{{SWAT 3}}'' (finished one campaign, waiting to possibly do the original one later), and ''Postal 2: [[SurprisinglyImprovedSequel Paradise Lost]]'' (finished with only one accidental delay).
* LoveWillLeadYouBack: An old friend of mine was in a situation like this - she had a boyfriend over the Internet who disappeared shortly before I met her, and refused to go out with anyone else in case he returned. Looking back on it, I think [[ReplacementGoldfish she might have only even tolerated me because of how similar I apparently was to her old boyfriend.]]
** PrecociousCrush: I was 13 at the time, while she was 17. I think she was the first (if not only) girl I truly fell in love with; it's also very telling that it involved her [[TheLostLenore pining after someone else]] (although to be fair, hindsight shows I wouldn't have been good enough for her anyway) and ended with her basically disappearing from my life with no warning.

** Later there was a shot with an M21 in ''Call of Duty 4'', where I nailed two headshots with a single bullet. Granted, killing two people with one sniper bullet is an actual challenge in that game, so I can't be the only one who got that lucky with it.
** I was on the receiving end of such a shot a month or so after the above: on the very same map I made my M21 shot in, while trying to crawl across a bridge to avoid snipers, I decided to just get up and dash across at the halfway point, only to [[AccidentalAimingSkills immediately stand up right between an enemy sniper and an ally he was aiming for]].
** At one point while using the auto-shotgun in ''VideoGame/HouseOfTheDead: OVERKILL'', I managed to acquire a [[KillStreak Goregasm]] and hold onto it by never missing a shot again for nearly ten minutes. This included throughout the boss fight against something that teleports and is very rarely on-screen.
** ARMA II again: I once managed to shoot down ''and destroy'' a Hip with a single bullet to the ''rear rotor''. Since then, I went into the editor and did some tests to find out how to best take out Russian choppers with small arms.
** Back to ''Call of Duty 4'', there was one occasion, again on the same map as the above (Overgrown), I managed to get the kills to call in a helicopter, and it proceeded to make nothing but headshots on every enemy it bothered to shoot.
* {{Keet}}: When I'm among a group of people I like and am enjoying myself, I definitely show it. [[{{Deconstruction}} The problem here]] is that it's almost guaranteed to mean those people don't like me back, because my "best" is a loud and annoying.
* LetsPlay: I do these now. Games I've done include ''VideoGame/{{Blood}} 2'' (unfinished), ''VideoGame/{{Postal}} 2'' (finished after two years of hiatus), ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty [[VideoGame/ModernWarfare 4]]'' (took a year to finish), ''Blood'' (alongside [=CoD4=], unfinished), ''Call of Duty 1'' and ''2'' (finished in a timely fashion), ''VideoGame/JediKnightJediAcademy'' (also took a year to finish, though for different reasons), ''Postal 2: [[{{Sequelitis}} Apocalypse Weekend]]'' (finished after ignoring it for two months), ''VideoGame/{{SWAT 3}}'' (finished one campaign, waiting to possibly do the original one later), and ''Postal 2: [[SurprisinglyImprovedSequel Paradise Lost]]'' (finished with only one accidental delay).
* LoveWillLeadYouBack: An old friend of mine was in a situation like this - she had a boyfriend over the Internet who disappeared shortly before I met her, and refused to go out with anyone else in case he returned. Looking back on it, I think [[ReplacementGoldfish she might have only even tolerated me because of how similar I apparently was to her old boyfriend.]]
** PrecociousCrush: I was 13 at the time, while she was 17. I think she was the first (if not only) girl I truly fell in love with; it's also very telling that it involved her [[TheLostLenore pining after someone else]] (although to be fair, hindsight shows I wouldn't have been good enough for her anyway) and ended with her basically disappearing from my life with no warning.
* MindScrew: [[AuthorAppeal Another thing I apparently really like]], considering most of my plans for a possibly-upcoming LP are just ways to screw with my audience.
annoying attention hog.



** Unrelated to any of the above is the "[[http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Ninjazi Ninjazi]]", a character I created during my brief ''Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory'' obsession: [[ThoseWackyNazis a Nazi soldier trained in the art of stealth and ninjitsu]].
* OneOfUs: Well, obviously, but making references to this site was literally a necessity at the time I joined the Let's Play Forum, hence all of my LP's make reference to tropes as applicable. Hell, the CoolGuns and RareGuns pages are even some of my primary information sources for the Databases™ in most of my [=LPs=] from ''Call of Duty'' onwards.
* PlayerTic: For some reason, I seem to really enjoy firing guns in time to "shave and a haircut, two bits".
* PungeonMaster: If a pun comes to mind, I will make it, even though absolutely nobody likes my puns.
* RunningGag: Back in the day, there was n infrequent one wherein T1m would suddenly stop the conversation and burst out "holy shit your HAIR! It's BLUE!", to which I reacted with shock as if I wasn't aware. We'd also exaggerated just how big the above-mentioned FunnyAfro was on multiple occasions.
** Necessary files on my computer deleting themselves for no reason other than [[WalkingTechbane my computer needs them to run correctly.]] [[CueTheFlyingPigs Finally figured out why this was happening and fixed it.]] [[DoubleSubverted So now I have to contend with potential hardware failure more often than should be possible.]]
** [[{{Steam}} Your state is set to]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUiW6AwYNuM Off]][[VideoGame/JediKnightIIJediOutcast line]].
** Apparently, asking me "Who are you?" or similar will always get a completely random response that has nothing to do with anything (i.e. "I'm one of the handful of VideoGame/{{Postal}} 2 fans [[FanHater who actually played Postal 2]]").
** Speaking of Steam and game glitches, I also have one in Steam screenshots labeled "floating ''×''" - a glitch where somehow a gun dropped by someone ends up floating in mid-air under its own power. For the most part I've gone the route of fake movie titles for it, starting with the original "[[http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=12218524 floating shotgun]]", going on through things like "[[http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=131779059 FLOATING SHOTGUN 2:]] [[Film/DieHard2 FLOAT HARDER]]", and "[[http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=132459941 floating shotgun 3:]] [[OddlyNamedSequel2ElectricBoogaloo floating machine gun]]", plus some spin-offs like "[[http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=146350592 floating c4]]", "[[http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=348878757 floating laser gun]]", "[[http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=528679910 floating shotgun 5: floating corpse]] [[GenreShift (the horror spin-off)]]" (with sequels in "[[http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=790324183 floating corpse 2]]: [[TechnologyMarchesOn not-quite-adapted-for-widescreen edition]]", "[[http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=792933149 floating corpse 3]]: floating shadow" and "[[http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=882014485 floating corpse 4]]: floating [[LetsPlay/ChipCheezum war buddies]]"), "[[http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=747188281 Floating Shotgun:]] The [[ForeignRemake Swedish Remake]]", and "[[http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=881052846 floating shotgun 7:]] floating medkit (don't sue us red cross foundation edition)".
** As noted above, there's also my tendency to be able to see through textures into the void in games, no matter how polished they are, which I will always react to with "I CAN SEE FOREVER".
*** A somewhat related issue is in regards to [=MP5=] models in games, where I've played two games to have the model bug out in some way, [[https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=702795417 one in which my character's shoulder is sort of within view]] and [[https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=823169585 one in which a modded MP5 just straight-up clips through the HUD]].



* SawStarWarsTwentySevenTimes: ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'', actually, when I was like 3 years old. I don't remember it now, but I had apparently watched the film so often that I had memorized every line spoken in the film.
* ScheduleSlip: I am ''incredibly'' lazy. Notable instances of both on- and off-schedules:
** There was a period in 2008 where I was making ''WebComic/GrandTheftAutoCity17'' and I managed to upload one comic every Friday for seven months, before putting it on hiatus after I ended up posting filler that basically consisted of "there's no comic today because I'm out of ideas" four times within six weeks. One notable exception was a period where an update to ''VideoGame/GarrysMod'' made it impossible for me to load ''[=HL2=]'' maps through it for a month, forcing a temporary hiatus. Promptly made four comics within a week once this was fixed in the next update, plus the usual Friday update.
** Joined the LetsPlay Forum in early 2009, started ''Blood 2''. Five updates within a 31-day period, before constant bad recordings and issues trying to get the videos up on Viddler stole all my interest in showing off the game and I dropped it.
** Started ''Postal 2'' shortly afterwards. Four months of bi-weekly updates, with few exceptions, and 10 videos uploaded until computer issues deleted everything and I lost my copy of the game.
** Started ''Call of Duty 4'' in mid-2010, with a side-order of ''Blood'' because one of my buddies was mad that ''Call of Duty 4'' wasn't ''Postal 2''. At best, I was managing one update every month and a half up until the last month or so, even if part of the reason was that I was putting out two videos per game with each update. Recorded all of ''Blood'' Episode 3 in a week, then put it on hiatus after dying repeatedly in the first level of Episode 4. Went on to finish ''Call of Duty 4'' with finally timely updates, just over a year after it started.
** Re-started ''Postal 2'' in early 2012. Seven more updates in just over one month, finally finished it.
** Started ''Call of Duty 1'' and ''2'' in early 2012. 53 videos, weekly updates of three videos average, no delays. Finished in exactly four months.
** ''Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy''. Nine weekly updates to start, before indefinite hiatus due to my decision to get a guest for the [[Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack Hoth level]] combined with absolutely every potential guest's microphone or computer short-circuiting at the exact same time. Started ''Postal 2: Apocalypse Weekend'' after three weeks of no Hoth, but without intention to frequently update that until after ''Academy'' finished. And then my editing programs refusing to work on Windows 7 after upgrading to it, a fire at my house, and shitty replacement Internet at the new one halted all production entirely for six months - eventually, a further month after all issues were fixed yet I was still unable to secure a guest, I just went ahead on my own and finally finished it, once again nearly a full year after I started.
** ''Apocalypse Weekend'' following this. Re-started for a bad games thread on Something Awful, three weekly updates followed by a notice that [[{{Understatement}} there might be a slight delay]]. Two months of ignoring the game entirely followed, though eventually I put the rest of the videos out within a week or so.
** ''SWAT 3'' followed a year later as my first real LP on SA. Nine near-weekly updates, with delays before a few videos due to sickness and/or my birthday coinciding with {{Steam}} Thanksgiving sales. Sudden realization that the campaign I chose to play is literally only seven missions long bringing the first part of the LP to an end; now I'm not working on it simply out of laziness.
** ''Postal 2: Paradise Lost'' followed on another year later. Even before I finished it it was already notable in that I'd been uploading once every four or five days, rather than just once every week - and even then five days was the exception, usually at the start of a new day. When I got to the end it went down to every two or three days.
* SelfDeprecation: I have an incredibly low opinion of myself, as is probably obvious if you're somehow actually reading any of this, which both was caused by and exacerbates other people's already-low opinions of me.
* SingleIssueWonk: It's pretty easy to tell what I've recently got into simply by what I start adding examples about on this wiki.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Despite (or perhaps because of) hating myself more than anything other than the RPG-7, I have a massive ego and assume everything everyone does has ''something'' to do with me. Also, I edit this page ''way'' too often even though nobody ever reads it (which is probably for the best though, I've likely admitted more than I really should at this point).
** There was a too-long period both on Uncyclopedia and even a stint on 4chan where I seemed to believe I could become the Next Big Thing of the internet just by virtue of... shit, I dunno, my personality or something? Anyway, this resulted in shoehorning quotes from myself on Uncyclopedia pages and trying to become an Epic Fail Guy {{expy}} on 4chan. It didn't take, obviously. It may be part of what convinced me to stop using the [=WolfZword=] name, now that I had associated it with delusional self-aggrandizement on the worst corners of the Internet (assuming anyone even really cared, which thankfully they didn't).
** It's starting to pop up again. One idea I've come up with for a Let's Play is basically a combination of that and a ''Machinima/FreemansMind'' rip-off where I play through ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'' commentating in-character as Gordon Threemen, the character/name mentioned once or twice further up. How exactly anyone in the world, other than friends who won't watch my LP's, is supposed to know who Gordon Threemen is, why exactly they're supposed to give a shit, and why I refuse to drop this idea and LP something nobody else has played like half my childhood GBC library instead, is a mystery.
* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: A regular occurrence after I met T1m, thanks to the power of imagination.
--> '''Kadorhal''': [[LampshadeHanging Man, when DIDN'T we cause the apocalypse?]]\\
'''T1m''': good times
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: All the time. Either I'm completely detached from a group, thus nobody having any reason to care about me, or as soon as someone shows me some kindness I end up becoming overly clingy and annoying the everloving shit out of them, thus giving them (and everybody else) more reasons to avoid me entirely.
* TheUnpronounceable: There doesn't seem to be a set way to pronounce "Kadorhal", leading to all sorts of different ways to shorten it into a nickname (Kad, Kado, Kade, Kador, etc.).
** It seems to be getting into "The Unspellable" territory, too - multiple people seem to insert a second (first?) R after the first A.
* TheQuietOne: I don't talk very much, almost to the point of being TheVoiceless, mostly because I'm rarely engaged in vocal conversation with people who care what I have to say.
** Let's Plays, on the other hand... I'd actually been considering an LP of the ''[[VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon F.E.A.R.]]'' series primarily because subtitles would fit better for most of them, because otherwise I'm never going to bring myself back to doing those except as a MythologyGag.
* TropeMaker: I have no actual proof beyond the inability to find anything dated earlier (which says more about my inability to work with Google's shitty, counter-productive search algorithms than anything), but I ''think'' I [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJqDn20tPo0 started]] the "<video game character> plays <unrelated video game>" fad on Website/{{Youtube}}. Not likely, honestly, but at least I'm pretty close to the ground floor.

say.



* UnsoundEffect: [[AuthorAppeal I am very fond of doing these]].
* UnusualEuphemism: "Poking" used to be one, normally to refer to healing teammates in ''VideoGame/KillingFloor'', which eventually mutated into a sexual thing - mostly of the gay variety in my case, because only one person in the usual group was female and [[AlwaysSaveTheGirl nobody else would heal anyone other than her]]. At the very least, it helped me level the Medic perk pretty quickly.
* VerbalTic: "yes" and "[[Website/SomethingAwful :V]]" are the most common. Animal sounds are pretty common too.
* VitriolicBestBuds: I used to have the uncanny ability to find people who completely fucking hate each other, and somehow become friends with ''both'' of them without either demanding I remove the other or whatnot. It helps that I'm at least smart enough to not bother deliberately bringing them together for things or even talking about them with each other.

** Even video editing programs, the one thing I can usually get to work properly, are beginning to do this - convert parts of an .avi file to .gif in [=VirtualDub=], watch as it ''drops four-fifths of the frames while saving'' and still results in an overly-bloated file anyway.
* WeaponOfChoice:
** CoolGuns/{{Battle rifles}} are my absolute favorite weapon type. If given a choice, I'll usually trend towards the M14 (particularly the EBR variant) for longer-range stuff, while for closer ranges I prefer the FAL (again particularly shortened [=DSArms=] variations); the [=HK417=] is a somewhat distant third favorite, for being a battle rifle in the shape of an AR-15. Failing that, anything with a three-round burst mode, typically an M16 (thanks to an ''VideoGame/UnrealTournament'' mod that gave me that love for burst-fire) or anything bullpup I can push into the role (thanks to ''[[VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon F.E.A.R.]]''[='=]s ASP rifle, which also gave me an appreciation for the TAR-21). Good luck having a game let me actually use them, though, and even when I can I'm usually terrible with them (fire rate caps are the bane of my existence).
** CoolGuns/{{Shotguns}}, particularly double-barreled ones, were this for a long while when I first got into ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' through source ports. ''VideoGame/SeriousSam'' and ''VideoGame/KillingFloor'' reaffirmed my love for double-barreled varieties not to long after that, the two ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' games showed me that semi-auto models, especially the Benelli M4, are pretty sweet too, and ''[[VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2 Black Ops II]]'' was the first to adequately demonstrate the wonders of pump-action ones over semi-autos with its Remington 870. Ultimately, next to a double-barreled variety, I'd have to say the Mossberg 590 is my absolute favorite, since between both ''VideoGame/{{Insurgency}}'' and then ''VideoGame/RainbowSixSiege'' I've managed to do ridiculously well with it.
** For sidearms, I tend to gravitate towards ones in .45 ACP; the 1911 has more or less forced itself into the role based partly on its ubiquity (not to mention being really good in games like ''VideoGame/{{Metal Gear Solid 3|SnakeEater}}'' and ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas''), and I'll usually pick it over something with higher capacity but lower power, or even higher capacity but equal power since the [=USP45=] shows up a lot too but I don't really use it that much despite having an immense appreciation for it from the similar Mark 23 in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid''. Failing that, it'll probably be a full-auto machine pistol to make up for the power difference with capacity and fire rate; the B&T [=MP9=] is my all-time favorite for reasons I can't adequately explain, though the Beretta 93R has recently become another favorite for being a burst-fire weapon (and, again, ridiculously good in most games I've tried it in) and taking the look of a Beretta and turning it into something resembling a ridiculous HandCannon. Once again, I'm rarely any good with them, though this time it's [[EmergencyWeapon usually]] not ''entirely'' [[SortingAlgorithmOfWeaponEffectiveness my fault]].
** As far as non-gun destructive implements go, C4 or anything else that is remote-detonated is the best. This one's gotten to the point that when I play co-op games with groups of friends, they usually let me handle blowing things up. ''MGS''-style laser-trip claymores and the like are fun, too, but honestly, if it's not detonated on-command, or a grenade bound to the middle mouse button, I usually just forget I even have it until long after I get killed in a situation where it could have saved me.
** Flight sims have more leeway - I'll basically fly anything so long as I can think up or rip off a particularly cool-looking paint scheme for it in ''HAWX'' or ''Vector Thrust''. Once upon a time the F-15 was my one true favorite, and I flew it almost exclusively for a long while in ''VideoGame/{{Ace Combat Zero|TheBelkanWar}}'', but then I started exploring other options, discovering the Su-27 series (other ''VideoGame/AceCombat'' games) and the F-14 (''Vector Thrust'') are just as fun.
* WhatAnIdiot: Despite the name "[=WolfZword=]" being an OldShame, it is still my username pretty much everywhere I go that's not here, the Let's Play Forum, or Something Awful. Even places that I know I signed up for long ''after'' T1m suggested the new name. Apparently, since the name was originally suggested as a name for a dark alter-ego-type character that I had (because of course I had a dark alter-ego-type character, I was a teenager in the mid-oughties), I'd decided for uses outside of that I'd continue using [=WolfZword=] for regular stuff and go by Kadorhal for "darker" or more "adult" things... which caused the above issue when I quickly decided, yeah, the new name was much better and I'm gonna just go by that.
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: It took all of the first chapter of my ''Blood II'' Let's Play before I started throwing as much random shit as I could into the videos, the sole explanation for ''why'' being that there were poisonous spiders in the second chapter. Granted, I had a reasonable excuse the first time (the biggest bit of drug-trip was a replacement for footage in which I somehow managed to not record any audio, for instance - not that it was a good replacement, because I remember the level I found the most technically-impressive was among it), but after that I've been looking for any excuse I can to show everything ''except'' the game I'm trying to play.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: I ''will'' give my character in a video game blue hair if I have the option. Even when I think about recreating a character from another medium, I always end up [[{{Cosplay}} recreating just their costume]] to keep said blue hair alongside it.

** CoolGuns/{{Shotguns}}, particularly double-barreled ones, were this for a long while when I first got into ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' through source ports. ''VideoGame/SeriousSam'' and ''VideoGame/KillingFloor'' reaffirmed my love for double-barreled varieties not to long after that, the two ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' games showed me that semi-auto models, especially the Benelli M4, are pretty sweet too, and ''[[VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2 Black Ops II]]'' was the first to adequately demonstrate the wonders of pump-action ones over semi-autos with its Remington 870. Ultimately, next to a double-barreled variety, I'd have to say the Mossberg 590 is my absolute favorite, since between both ''VideoGame/{{Insurgency}}'' and then ''VideoGame/RainbowSixSiege'' I've managed to do ridiculously well with it.
** For sidearms, I tend to gravitate towards ones in .45 ACP; the 1911 has more or less forced itself into the role based partly on its ubiquity (not to mention being really good in games like ''VideoGame/{{Metal Gear Solid 3|SnakeEater}}'' and ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas''), and I'll usually pick it over something with higher capacity but lower power, or even higher capacity but equal power since the [=USP45=] shows up a lot too but I don't really use it that much despite having an immense appreciation for it from the similar Mark 23 in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid''. Failing that, it'll probably be a full-auto machine pistol to make up for the power difference with capacity and fire rate; the B&T [=MP9=] is my all-time favorite for reasons I can't adequately explain, though the Beretta 93R has recently become another favorite for being a burst-fire weapon (and, again, ridiculously good in most games I've tried it in) and taking the look of a Beretta and turning it into something resembling a ridiculous HandCannon. Once again, I'm rarely any good with them, though this time it's [[EmergencyWeapon usually]] not ''entirely'' [[SortingAlgorithmOfWeaponEffectiveness my fault]].
** As far as non-gun destructive implements go, C4 or anything else that is remote-detonated is the best. This one's gotten to the point that when I play co-op games with groups of friends, they usually let me handle blowing things up. ''MGS''-style laser-trip claymores and the like are fun, too, but honestly, if it's not detonated on-command, or a grenade bound to the middle mouse button, I usually just forget I even have it until long after I get killed in a situation where it could have saved me.
** Flight sims have more leeway - I'll basically fly anything so long as I can think up or rip off a particularly cool-looking paint scheme for it in ''HAWX'' or ''Vector Thrust''. Once upon a time the F-15 was my one true favorite, and I flew it almost exclusively for a long while in ''VideoGame/{{Ace Combat Zero|TheBelkanWar}}'', but then I started exploring other options, discovering the Su-27 series (other ''VideoGame/AceCombat'' games) and the F-14 (''Vector Thrust'') are just as fun.

* WhatAnIdiot: Despite the name "[=WolfZword=]" being an OldShame, it is still my username pretty much everywhere I go that's not here, the Let's Play Forum, or Something Awful. Even places that I know I signed up for long ''after'' T1m suggested the new name. Apparently, since the name was originally suggested as a name for a dark alter-ego-type character that I had (because of course I had a dark alter-ego-type character, I was a teenager in the mid-oughties), I'd decided for uses outside of that I'd continue using [=WolfZword=] for regular stuff and go by Kadorhal for "darker" or more "adult" things... which caused the above issue when I quickly decided, yeah, the new name was much better and I'm gonna just go by that.
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: It took all of the first chapter of my ''Blood II'' Let's Play before I started throwing as much random shit as I could into the videos, the sole explanation for ''why'' being that there were poisonous spiders in the second chapter. Granted, I had a reasonable excuse the first time (the biggest bit of drug-trip was a replacement for footage in which I somehow managed to not record any audio, for instance - not that it was a good replacement, because I remember the level I found the most technically-impressive was among it), but after that I've been looking for any excuse I can to show everything ''except'' the game I'm trying to play.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: I ''will'' give my character in a video game blue hair if I have the option. Even when I think about recreating a character from another medium, I always end up [[{{Cosplay}} recreating just their costume]] to keep said blue hair alongside it.

** CoolGuns/{{Battle rifles}} are my absolute favorite weapon type. If given a choice, I'll usually trend towards the M14 (particularly the EBR variant) for longer-range stuff, while for closer ranges I prefer the FAL (again particularly shortened [=DSArms=] variations); the [=HK417=] is a somewhat distant third favorite, for being a battle rifle in the shape of an AR-15. Failing that, anything with a three-round burst mode, typically an M16 (thanks to an ''VideoGame/UnrealTournament'' mod) or anything bullpup I can push into the role (thanks to ''[[VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon F.E.A.R.]]''[='=]s ASP rifle, which also gave me an appreciation for the TAR-21). Good luck having a game let me actually use them, though, and even when I can I'm usually terrible with them (fire rate caps are the bane of my existence).

** CoolGuns/{{Shotguns}}, particularly double-barreled ones, were this for a long while when I first got into ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' through source ports. ''VideoGame/SeriousSam'' and ''VideoGame/KillingFloor'' reaffirmed my love for double-barreled varieties not to long after that, the two ''VideoGame/Left4Dead'' games showed me that semi-auto models, especially the Benelli M4, are pretty sweet too, and ''[[VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2 Black Ops II]]'' was the first to adequately demonstrate the wonders of pump-action ones with its Remington 870. Ultimately, next to a double-barreled variety, I'd have to say the Mossberg 590 is my absolute favorite, since between both ''VideoGame/{{Insurgency}}'' and then ''VideoGame/RainbowSixSiege'' I've managed to do ridiculously well with it.

** As far as non-gun destructive implements go, C4 or anything else that is remote-detonated is the best. This one's gotten to the point that when I play co-op games with groups of friends, they usually let me handle blowing things up. ''MGS''-style laser-trip claymores and the like are fun, too, but honestly, if it's not detonated on-command or a grenade bound to the middle mouse button, I usually just forget I even have it until long after I get killed in a situation where it could have saved me.

Apparently, since the name was originally suggested as a name for a dark alter-ego that I had (because of course I had a dark alter-ego, I was a teenager in the mid-oughties), I'd decided for uses outside of that I'd continue using [=WolfZword=] for regular stuff and go by Kadorhal for "darker" or more "adult" things... which caused the above issue when I quickly decided, yeah, the new name was much better and I'm gonna use just that.

** CoolGuns/{{Battle rifles}} are my absolute favorite weapon type. If given a choice, I'll usually trend towards the M14 (particularly the EBR variant) for longer-range stuff, while for closer ranges I prefer the FAL (again particularly shortened [=DSArms=] variations); the [=HK417=] is a somewhat distant third favorite, for being a battle rifle in the shape of an AR-15. Failing that, anything with a three-round burst mode, typically an M16 (thanks to a ''VideoGame/UnrealTournament'' mod) or anything bullpup I can push into the role (thanks to ''[[VideoGame/FirstEncounterAssaultRecon F.E.A.R.]]''[='=]s ASP rifle, which also gave me an appreciation for the TAR-21). Good luck having a game let me actually use them, though, and even when I can I'm usually terrible with them (fire rate caps are the bane of my existence).

** As far as non-gun destructive implements go, C4 or anything else that is remote-detonated is the best. This one's gotten to the point that when I play co-op games with groups of friends, they usually let me handle blowing things up.
** Flight sims have more leeway - I'll basically fly anything so long as I can think up or rip off a particularly cool-looking paint scheme for it in ''HAWX'' or ''Vector Thrust''. Once upon a time the F-15 was my one true favorite, and I flew it almost exclusively for a long while in ''VideoGame/{{Ace Combat Zero|TheBelkanWar}}'', but then I started exploring other options, discovering the Su-27 series (other ''VideoGame/AceCombat''s) and the F-14 (''Vector Thrust'') are just as fun.

** CoolGuns/{{Shotguns}}, particularly double-barreled ones, were this for a long while when I first got into ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' through source ports.
