The Lyrics

Some people rock with the Playstation, yeah
Some use the Game Cube or X-Box
Some people like Atari
But that’s old and the graphics really suck

People want to pwn me badly
But I keep getting headshots, getting headshots
Yeah, They’re dying quickly
They’re dying
Playing online, online, online, online HALO

I flattened Frogger
I’m a Sniper
Then I’m a Blogger
I write my cheat codes on the web…

I’m a Gamer
Hall of Famer
Mortal Kombat Slayer
You fight me and you’ll be dead


In The Sims I had flings
With every hottie made
I killed some cops and hookers
Playing GTA
Now I’m jumping, now I’m jumping, now I’m jumping on your head
Goomba slaying, Mario makes them dread

Cause I’m a Fighter
I’m a Boxer
A Duck Hunter
And I’m a Gunner
I just like beating people up!

Martian shooter
On computers
A Hitman with a Luger
You’re pumped with lead from my shotgun


Pac-Man he treats my jollies, baby
And I’ll keep chowing on dots…
Then I’ll fight zombie, fight zombie, yeah fight zombie armies
With my wicked crossbow

You’re a swordsman/knight/archer/witch/thief
On WOW I am the best in the graveyard you’ll be
Trigger happy, trigger happy while playing Goldeneye
Play me newbie and you’ll be dead in no time!!!

I'm not a gamer, but I found this to be very funny, even though I didn't get all the references.

I don't mind list parodies, and this one wasn't bad, but for me it had no LOL lines and several references was lost, my bad of course, must be getting old...

This coulda a been added to the soundtrack of The King Of Kong: A Fistful Of Quarters or Pixels. You covered a lot of territory (for its time) in a very amusing way into the format of the tune. Good parody! Secuiry code DUG (DIG? ::)

(Artistry) Man, if this was in Pixels, it would've been the only good thing in that pile of Koopa crap. Anyway, this was a pretty good parody, nice variety of game genres covered, 555 achievements!
