    When I lived in Blighty I had a friend who used to put "est" at the end of various "isms" to make himself sound "street"...

    E.G. "Man, Mc D's have got the blinginest burgers eva".

    UGH

    "Love", when used to describe absolutely everything someone has a general inclination to liking. Think of a better word that's not so extreme!

    Opinions are too binary these days: people are trained to either *LOVE* or HATE(!!!) everything. Why can't some things just be 'OK'?

    You hate people who only ever use 'hate' and 'love' to describe things they like or dislike.

    The word 'MOB' when used in RPGs. It just irritates the shit out of me for some reason.

    Oh, also SKU.

    No, you do NOT (NOT!!!) gain any fucking gaming streetcred by using this, and we do NOT (NOT!!!) thing that you are an independent games retailer because you throw this around.

    Now fuck off and die screaming.

    Not really a word but:

    AAA (as in AAA-title/game). Triple-A is just as bad.

    I hate it because it is very frequently used to describe the excellency of not yet released games, or as a supposedly valid argument to describe why a game beats another.

    As in: "The Pripyat section in Cod 4 is better than the rendition in S.T.A.L.K.E.R., because CoD 4 is AAA"

    Grrrrrrrr....

    Definitely.

    Same goes for:

    - "math" when used by someone British
    - "sports" as in "I play sports". No you bloody don't, you play sport you americanised twerp!
    - the whole loose/lose debacle
    - "end of"
    - "How are you?", "I'm good thanks". Aargh! "well"! It's fucking "well" you knob cheese!

    On the other hand, I don't mind bad grammar as long as it's consistent. For example, misuse (or absence) of adverbs doesn't bother me. The same with teach/learn - one of the most intelligent people I know confuses the two.

    Haha this one really gets me as well. Which sport are they talking about exactly? You don't play 'sports' you play a sport. Saying you play every single sport is a bit bloody odd. They're all quite different!

    Hold on, what's wrong with saying sports? If I play football and rugby and get asked "What do you do in your spare time?" then "I play sports" is an acceptable answer isn't it?

    Transpose it to books.

    I read book doesn't make much sense unless you are a caveman just learning to speak.

    I read books.

    That's better.

    It's technically correct but I just find it idiotic and lazy :p

    How about.

    "I partake in vigourous exercise of a competitive nature for the good of my soul and general well being"

    Well that's taking it to an extreme :p

    I just think "I play sports" is ridiculous as 'sports' is quite a broad field. With reading a book, for instance, you're always reading. Be it a horror novel or a romance book, you're still reading.

    The same can't be said for different sports. Every sport is different and some (DARTS!) are vastly seperated from others in almost every single way.

    Saying that you "like sports" isn't really saying much at all.

    This is all just IMO of course, which is what this thread is about.
