To be completely and wholly dominated, usually through some form of violence or physical action, without contest, in a very short amount of time. The person being owned is almost always caught unaware. Often shouted out loud by viewing audience.

The term "Owned" was originally conjured circa 1986 by a small Canadian Apple II user's group in Langley, BC. Primary usage was similar to current internet vernacular, but was usually restricted to computer hardware and not gaming.

Use was slightly adapted to indicate superiority over another person. Or to declare that said person is merely chattel.
Man, the Apple so owns(owned) the C64!

I *own* people like you!
