Comment Huge reason for LAN (Score 1) 368

LAN parties, and not just you and some buddies, but major Starcraft tournaments.

Comment When I was a lad (Score 1) 623

We had to play Mortal Kombat (blood code enabled) in secret since my friend's mom saw an expose on the horrible violence that was in the game. They never batted an eye to the fact that we played Doom 2 for 4-5 hours a night, every night of the summer for about 3 years.
