This is a word that my kids use on the internet.... when I asked what it meant, they told me that it was a bastardized version of "owned".

This is a "teen word".. and for some of you to continue arguing over the origins... well, see my example below.
"Urban Dictionary users who continue to argue over the origins of adolescent internet terminology, are totally pwned by the rest of us who really don't give a shit."

Created in 1972 by the 3rd SOG (Special Operations Group) when a Lt. Colonel Hank Munro shot a Vietnamese sentry with a Mk22 Hush Puppy. Due to the tension at the time, he inadvertantly said "pwned" instead of "Delta, move in and eliminate all hostiles." The subsequent death of Lt. Col. Munro as he charged a heavily fortified position lead to the term "pwned" being adopted as short-hand for "that dumbass just got his ass whupped in a helluva funny way."

to humiliate: usually relating to first person shooter computer games.

Deliberate mispelling of the word "owned".

1. Getting seriously owned by someone or something.
2. Losing so bad it hurts.
Yeah, they seriously pwned Jason and Ian. It was glorious.

Something that someone who is very experienced at something says to someone who is inexperienced after beating them. D-bags who only find it fulfilling to play newbs at games they've been playing for a long time say this after an easy win. Too bad they can't beat anyone that also knows how to play.
A guy knows all the moves in a game and only plays against people who have never played or do not play as often as him. He tells them they have been pwned after defeating them. What a loser he is.
