Gaming Rules

If you’re a gamer, you know there are certain rules you follow. Rules of the house;

It’s my house I get the best controller, I get player one, I decide what we play, how long we play and I don’t pass the controller. If you try to tell me no, you don’t play.

There is the, you lost you pass the controller rule. Then there are the, my-system-you-can-deal-with-it rules of:

I don’t have to pass the controller over if I don’t want to.

It’s my system what I say goes.

Regardless of whether you brought the console, you supplied the game or it’s your house you have your own set of rules for the games your friends and you play. So, I’ll share with you my special rules of my games.


Being an employee of Gamestop I’m able to check out games from there. As such it’s my job to ensure they stay safe and seeing as that’s a top priority will start this as rule number one:


  1. If it came from work and I don’t own it, you don’t touch it. Handsy people can/will get punched.
  2. If it’s a new game and I am a super fan of it, you don’t touch it. Handsy people /will/ get punched.
  3. My house, my games, I’m player one. No backtalk.
  4. If I wanna play by myself, I play by myself.
  5. Put my games back up in alphabetical order, I didn’t invite you over just to clean up after you.
  6. Don’t change my settings if you don’t want me to change your face.
  7. Take good care of the game.

While the rules change from person to person the one thing that doesn’t is that gamer’s rules are very important.

So, tell me. What are your rules regarding your video games??
