3.
A word, whose meaningful definition(s)and correct applications are now obscured and have been raped to death mostly by the 25 and under crowd. It has been overused as "the" catch phrase used to describe a situation, person, event, movie, taking a shit,etc. The abuse and birth as a catchphrase has its origins among avid gamers and pretentious English majors.
There are too many "epic" examples to count, just go walk onto a college campus and listen closely.

(adjective) Awesome, kickass, or otherwise positive. Can be used to refer to anything but is usually referring to a particular event or action. The most common usages are "epic win" or "epic failure," and some prefer to type it in all caps. Occasionally people use the phrase "Epic ___" as a stand-alone sentence or phrase, always following a story about something considered Epic.
Example 1: "He's a blackbelt in karate, so when this asshole came up to him, he totally kicked the dude's ass. You should have been there, it was fucking Epic."

Example 2: "I'm a blackbelt in karate, so this asshole came up to me and I kicked his ass. Epic fucking win."

Example 3: "That asshole from down the street got his ass kicked today."
"Really?"
"Yeah."
"EPIC WIN!"

A word that used to be used to describe a book, a movie or other work as timeless, great, and meaningful. Is now used by douchebags who combine it with "win" or "fail" to describe everyday things.

Guy #2: Yeah man that was an epic movie!

INCORRECT usage:
DBag #1: I forgot my wallet so I had to go home and get it.
DBag #2: EPIC FAIL!

or

DBag #2: EPIC WIN!
