I saw something similar to this cruising around the counter-strike forums a while ago.

What are some signs that you've been playing fps's for too long? I'll post a couple, and i invite others to join in.

1. When walking towards the corner of a building, you lock your eyes at head-level (looking for a headshot), and strafe around the corner.

2. If you can't jump high enough to clear a hurdle or rock, you try to crouch during your leap.

3) When you start calling everybody around you "Noob" and attempt to speak 'leet' even though you're not using a keyboard.

Whenever you find your self kicking or turning over objects as your taking a walk. Then you realize your looking for ammo or medkits. :thumbsup:

You find yourself saying "w00t" a lot.

You often catch yourself thinking things like, "man, this building would make a killer CS map."

You see a huge crowd of people and think "Wow, i'm still getting a constant FPS!"

If you see someone bang their head or get punched, you automatically yell out "BOOM!! HEADSHOT!!"

Yea seriously, that one was a bit over the top there.

Anyway,

When playing any real life sport, immediately upon losing, you start accusing the other team of hacking.

Smack your friends when they don't follow you when you leave their house to go to the street.

(reference to rescuing a hostage in CS if that wasn't obvious, that and I didn't want to use 'shooting or stabbing')

Yell "fire in the hole" every time you throw something. And are always quick to look away if something is thrown at you just incase it might be a flashbang.

While playing paintball you accuse your opponents of being laggy...

After losing an intense game of frisbee you accuse the other team of using a speed mod...

While doing activities that involve running, you walk briskly instead, and with purpose...

When trying to jump on top of something you refuse to use your arms to pull you up, despite your lack of a 6 ft vertical...

:thumbsup:

When playing hide and seek, and are unable to find the other person(s), you accuse them of using an invisible hack (Blackhawk Down).


When ever you get hurt, or fall down, you scream "MEDIC! I NEED A MEDIC HERE!" (BF2)


When looking down from a high spot, you find yourself saying; "Man, this would be a perfect sniping position!!!!.......ermmm, did I just say that out loud?"
War produces veterans, wounded both physically and mentally. They have sacrificed for us.....and it is now our job to help these veterans, as they have already helped us in ways we will never know, in ways that we cannot fathom, and in ways that we take granted every day.
