 :fruit: Thanks to Kayin, the anime club at F.I.T. now has a form of hazing. :fruit:

Most of the victims want to high five him... after kicking his ass. Great success!
Does anybody else use this game as a form of torture?

Ugh. That's actually pretty disgusting. What makes IWBTG beautiful, in my opinion, is that the tortures it inflicts are strictly voluntary, a measure of willpower and individual merit. Turning the game into a socially mandated circlejerk is a massive devolution of what I think it represents. For Shame!

>_> It's an interesting idea, making someone play it for a bit- but forcing them to go much farther than Tyson is just mean.
Also I hate the word circlejerk intensely for some reason. Blerghle.

I've been aware of this.  Dylan and his crazy antics.  Har har har!

I fully endorse this use of IWBTG.  Allows the segregation of the mighty from the meek.  Why bother trying to get to know someone when you can just plunk them in front of the game and let IT TEST THEM.

I just text everyone who knows about this game saying quite simply "I am the Guy" and by jove it gets you some credibility.

Credibility you instantly lose for saying things like "by jove".

Sorry dude, but probably not. 

Maybe try on "by fucking jove!"

Hey they is no bad blood here. We're merely trying to curb usage of the sort of phrases that are diminishing our 'cred' stats.

A friend and I did jokingly discuss starting a competitive gaming plan where beating IWBTG was the entrance requirement.

We would be a group very patient people.
