A popular phrase among attention-seeking Twitter users found under any sort of tweet about a game that's been getting a lot of media coverage to indicate that the hype surrounding the said game has come to a standstill, so the game is no longer worth talking about.

This term may also refer to multiplayer games with a stagnant player base of less than a thousand people playing the game at inconsistent intervals.
Popular singleplayer game releases to lots of fanfare, copies are sold in the millions. The player base drops after a week because people are finishing the game and moving onto other things. The developers still update the game, but under every update is somebody who writes 'Dead Game' in the hope of getting attention or the hopeless pursuit of getting the game off of their feeds.

If you do this, please quit. It's okay to have a discourse about games and their marketing, but when your discourse ends with two words, I don't believe you have anything interesting to say.

gr ch mayday (off Tant's gr ch yellow rom)

a time for work, a time for play
this time it's war, you're time's up today
in a land of killers, i just may be the worst
and this time we'll see whose last days will be first.
i'm the fighter less loved, i take the road less traveled
but who needs a judge, i drop my own gavel
i may be the villain, i may become hated
but in my mind i find your life is outdated
your time has come but i alone decide how
there's a time to get grimey and the time is now!
