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.
