To be fiercely defeated in a humiliating manner. This may be accompanied by a slight hand movement downward as if pulling the lever on a slot machine and yelling out "owned".

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!

It's origins lie with the hacker community who would refer to taking control of a computer, effectively 'owning' it.
Hackers plays video games too, so the crossover is obvious.

Incidentally, this also the origins of l33t speak. Before teens got hold of it as a 'cool' way of talking, it was used to avoid automatic search routines looking for key words.
