The most infuriating and bloodlust inspiring phrase a gamer can hear. A phrase that makes you wishes that the person who said it was in the game so you can blow their head off. It is interesting to note that in all cases the gamer did not ask anyone’s opinion regarding the way he/she spends his/her free time, making the statement an unprovoked insulting comment. This bane of the gaming world is often said by a parent/brother/sister or romantic significant other who does not understand the time and effort spent in the game.

1st use: comment
It's said as a response to the gamer's emotional outburst about losing the game (such outbursts include: swearing/yelling and/or throwing the controller/mouse). In any case, the response is unwanted.

2nd use: defense
A person may use the phrase as a defense for causing the gamer to lose, such as by walking in front of the TV or unplugging the gaming device. Being used in this way is like pouring salt on the proverbial wound.

*Ryan playing a game on the last level with the boss so close to being dead, a proton microsope is needed to calculate its remaining life, his sister trips on a cord unplugging the game system*
Ryan: What the fuck?! *throws controller*
sister: *shrugs* It's just a game.
