Words and phrases that need to go away in 2011.

Forums - General Discussion - Words and phrases that need to go away in 2011.

It's a new year!I was just wondering what words or phrases people are tired of hearing. I'm curious to hear overused words and phrases from other countries, just in case they somehow make their way to the U.S.

I'll start:

Fail and Epic (and their combination) - I haven't heard the phrase recently anymore, but the two words themselves are still being overused.

Best [insert whatever] Ever!!! - It's only the best ever until you find something else to top it. This is usually said by teens, so have they really tried all variations of said item to conclude that it is the best ever?

Core Gamer - It's my opinion that whoever identifies themselves with this title is a loser and/or pays for sex. **If a mod finds this too harsh, please let me know and I'll remove it**

Bling - This word started and ended in the late 90s (Thanks Lil Wayne and B.G.), but somehow the mainstream media got a hold of it in the mid to late 2000s and now everybody started to use it again. I was in a Target parking lot last September, and at the time I had chrome rims on my car. Some middle aged old man in a Subaru Outback drives by me and says with a thumbs up, "Nice bling!" It was obviously a compliment, but for some reason I wanted to dive through his car window. Why is this words still being used!!!

EDIT: Casual Gamer - You get free sex, but your sexual partner is usually a fat cashier that gets you discounts on casual games. Thanks for reminding me Nikkom!

Chuck Norris jokes- these jokes are not funny at all in fact they're as saddening as a Funeral, the celebrity should be left alone (he is 70!).

Same with Soviet Russia jokes. I know they're almost dead but some pathetic people still try to keep them alive.

In movies when someone gets smacked: "Oh, thats going to leave a mark"

while I'm mentioned movies 

Please film makers cut the lonesome hawk screech to let you know you are obviously out in the middle of nowhere

“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

- George Orwell, ‘1984’

The core gamer statement is kinda harsh. It is basically in gamer and industry vocabulary to represent the stable gamer who buys and invest in gaming. They are the backbone of the industry because they support the titles that dont even get most publicity as well as the ones that do. They are also the most well-rounded.



calling PS3 and Xbox 360 "next Gen" has to stop
