RE: Anyone else do this?
Haha, interesting topic.

Talking trash has never been part of my gaming culture, for 2 reasons:

1. I believe positive reinforcement is more powerful than criticism (although honest criticism is sometimes due).

2. I'm generally way way way better than everybody I know at every game I play.

For her, I say don't treat her like an old Highschool bud...well, because she isn't an old highschool bud. But you similarly don't need to do it because she is a girl. Sex(<--not a verb here) aside, your very relationship with her is different because she is a friend's romantic interest, not an old buddy. So being overly-familiar isn't (IMO) appropriate...but also no need for kid gloves. Acknowledging "Hey, you got 2 kills this time!" in a half sarcastic manner is probably good enough. Haha.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

Isn't that just more reason to shit talk?
I shit talk because I'm boss and can back my shit talking up with results.

She often storms off to her room to sulk when I say something "offensive" to my other flatmate.
But I have taken your advice and started to give her shit. Just taking it slow and building up to full blown "wow, you are so bad at this game you should kill yourself".

If she acts like that then she definitely needs her skin thickened. Yes

She may not be an old bud. But if she's going to hang out in a culture where its rough and tumble you are going to have to have thick skin and a big mouth to deal with it. We don't need more Anita Sarkeesians types running around ruining the reps of female gamers more.

I just never understood the trash talk in games. The worst my crowd ever goes is, "You are so dead, I'm gunna hunt you down and murder you (and possibly your children)!" Or along those lines. But never actual insults.

Haha, trust me, when you win 95%+ of the games, you don't want to be the person rubbing it in. Not if you want to keep your friends.

Isn't that the purpose?
People just hold ya down. Can't wait for rumble (lonewolf) when Destiny comes out.
Sick of propping up shit teams or losing while having the best score overall.

You should hear us when a whole bunch of my high school buddies get together.
Jesus Christ we're horrible people.
I believe my latest insult was comparing my mates destiny beta character (a female, despite him being male, wearing a helmet that makes her look bald. It's really ugly) to the creature's shit that feeds off the sewer crust of a major Indian cities sewer after the cricket world cup final when the local curry shop is having a special.

Amen to that Hob's.

You need to get better friends who aren't so butt hurt and jealous. Tongue
