A word that instills fear in the hearts of 'World of Warcraft' fanatics and those who would join the urb-nerd camp everywhere, as thirty or so people have offered irritatingly nerdy definitions for this bit of tech vernacular, thus NO ONE should post a definition with more than one instance of internet shorthand, because it gets really annoying to see online gamers deliver expositories upon scenarios that can only occur in front of a keyboard and a computer moniter. that being said, lag is nothing more than a digial device's irritating tendency to process input more slowly than it takes for the user to output it.
Me: hey, i pressed a button on my cell phone and it took a couple of seconds for it to register
friend: why's that
Me:I don't know, looks like my cell phone is a victim of lag

An online gamer's worst nightmare. It's what happens when a good player gets killed more than he's supposed to, or when a bad player gets more kills than he's supposed to. Only elitist jackasses come close to the evil known as lag.
The professional player could not headshot the newcomer very well because the newcomer was lagging.

The n00b blamed the other player for lagging when he was getting slaughtered.
