Want a graphics card but don't wanna deal with ATi prices? Go third-party and get a VisionTek XTASY brand!

The Japanese name of the Nintendo Entertainment system (NES). It might also be known as the "Nintendo Family Computer". It's an 8-bit console that played cartridge-style games. You can easily tell the difference from the US and JP version by its cosmetics; US had gray/black, JP had red/white/gold.
Wow, you're playing the NES? In 2005? You're totally old-school.

A joke used on Alabama, during "Weekend Update with Colin Quinn", a segment on Saturday Night Live on 11/13/99.
"The report also noted that, in terms of Y2K readiness, Alabama is the nation's least prepared state. Alabama authorities, however, insist that they'll get to the Y2K problem as soon as they address the state's long-standing Y1K difficulties."

A spin-off version of the video game, House of the Dead. Instead of using the traditional gun to shoot zombies, you are to use a keyboard to help practice your WPM (words per minute).

This version removes most of the scary elements, and replaced it with humor. (The main characters carry a Dreamcast on their back). Zombies throw spatulas instead of axes.
Newbie Gamer: I need to learn how to type because I suck.
Shop Employee: Assuming you play games, why don't you try the "Typing of the Dead?" Guarenteed to help you type faster and tear zombie ass at the same time!

A store devoted to selling video games, consoles, and accessories. Usually found next to a Hollywood Video, Game Crazy sells XBox, Playstation 2, Gamecube, Gameboy Advance, and Nintendo DS games, and will even do trade-ins. It also sometimes offers promotions or competitions.

Similar to GameStop, it may be managed by asshole employees who don't know anything about games, and may have a female employee in there for no apparent reason. But, of course, that depends on which Game Crazy you shop in, as some manage their stores better than others.
Guy 1: Yo dude, wanna head over to GameStop so we can grab a copy of San Andreas?
Guy 2: Nah man, GameStop sucks, let's go to Game Crazy.
Guy 1: Alright, but let's go to the one in the other city, the Game Crazy in this city has this one guy who doesn't know a damn thing about games.
