Lying to beat your friends at video games, on the next Dr. Phil!

Updated on November 9, 2012

Have you ever lied to your friend(s), imaginary or real, when playing video games against them...just so you could beat them?

When my friends and I would play fighting games together and I would find out how to pull off a "special move", they would ask me how I did that. My friends, thinking that our relationship really meant more to me than whipping their buttocks in the game really thought I was going to tell them how I pulled the move off...boy were they wrong.

My response was always the same, "I don't know how I did it, I just keep randomly pushing buttons"...oh c'mon don't look at me like that, you know you did it before too. They finally realized I was lying after about the tenth time I "accidentally" pulled the move off in a row, but by that time it was too late and I already won the match. What can I say, when you're good you're good.

Every once in a while they would do the same thing to me, but I would just throw down the controller and storm out of the room calling them a cheater, because I'm a real man and that's how we handle our business. Back in the days of corded controllers, if I was losing I would yank the cord of their controller thus making the controller itself come flying out of their hands, giving me a few seconds to do what I had to do to win...just another reason why you should buy/use corded controllers.

I was lucky because if none of my so-called "cheating" moves worked, I had people in my life who were pretty low...and they don't mind going lower if you know what I mean. I just had to say the word and this problem (my ex-friend who beat me) will be solved and all it would cost me was a six pack of beer...and they didn't care if it was the cheap beer either. My family works pretty cheap and they get the job done.

      @John I totally agree...real men do cheat...that's how we "real" men roll!

      Yeah, that's how real men cheat! I grew chest and facial hair when I slammed my finger on the reset button the PS1, and I was only six years old! It's what it's there for - not when the game has crashed or to put another one in! It's because Sony had real men in mind, and said, "MEN NEED CHEAT BUTTON! WE IMPLEMENT ONE! GRRRR!" And then they crushed beers and got on with it.

      Cheating - it's a man's sport!

      Voted up, useful, interesting and I'm requesting a MANLY button!
