    Hmmm, break every traffic rule on GTA 4.
    Run over all people ever on GTA 4 while shooting wildly with my sub machine gun.
    Sniping police officers and others on GTA 4.

    I think we're talking within the boundaries of the game, as opposed to using a game to screw with everyone else because you don't know how to let stuff go. Some people take this stuff way too seriously.

    I think playing paying pyro in TF2 automatically makes you evil.
    Arguably the meta-gaming is within the confines of the game given the fact that the game is effectively the sandbox between players (its a pvp game, so the meta-gaming, although terrible, is part of that meta-pvp).. If you want an example IN GAME, then;

    Oh god, I knowwwwww! I always yell "I'm actually sparing you by running away, you fools!" and if they won't leave alone I just end up killing them all (it's not like they didn't ask for it, I was on a roof for 5 seconds and some guards have followed me halfway across the city by then, I've had less of a chase after assassinating someone!!! And don't even get me started on the guards from the first one, you bump into one and - "KILL THE INFIDEL!!!!!!!" :lolwut:)

    That always bugs me too, it's so tiresome going into a house/shop/alley and then finding your way blocked by about 10 people who love you. I actually had to restart the game once after 20 people bunched up behind me and glitched my character so I couldn't move or fast travel anywhere :|

    But I guess we're the least evil people here, as we're always provoked after all...
    Oh God, dont even get me started on the guards. In the kingdom you're riding your horse and then all you hear is "KILL HIM!" All I was doing was minding my own business and travelling from one place to another. :dontknow:

    Yep, we're definately not evil. Except when I had to kill a bunny for an achievement.

    Getting through on goal on fifa then when the keeper comes out passing to another player at scoring the open goal.
    Also On Abes Oddysee when my sister left her game on i once jumped down a whole which kills Abe and quicksaved it just before he died so everytime he died it autoreloaded the quick save and he died again.
    On Left 4 dead getting to the safe room first then shooting an alarmed car so a horde come for everyone else.

    That bugged me so much, because you could essentially do nothing without killing EVERY GUARD IN THE AREA!! It confused me so much as well, I was like "I'm riding a horse, perfectly normal thing to do!!!" (ridiculous how you had to walk to not be noticed, would take you an hour to get anywhere!) until I read in the manual or something that "guards are always on the lookout for bandits and assassins in these areas". How perfectly convenient :|

    But it was in the name of achievement whoring!!! The bad thing about when I shot a rabbit was when I didn't know there was an achievement for it :rofl:
    I swear vegans made that game or something, though...

    And why cant Altair swim? The amount of times ive fallen in the river in Damascus. :facepalm2:

    Wasnt there also an achievement for kicking a chicken? I did that as early as possible. Kicking chickens doesnt count as being evil. Theyre fair game.

    Oh christ, that!!! In the memory near the end I desynched about 20 times because of the damned water, not to mention the times the drunk ****ers shoved me in :|

    hahahhha that was one of the first achievements I got (again, unwittingly) because I was playing with a friend and they told me I could kick chickens and I spent about 5 minutes doing nothing but that XD
    And I think chickens are ok because you don't kill them or something pedantic like that...

    When I first played Metal Gear Solid on the PS1 as a child, at the section where Sniper Wolf first shoots Meryl, I used to stand behind the wall and kill her over and over, all while monologuing to myself an imagined dialogue. For instance:

    "It's OK Snake, it's OK that you killed me and the unborn baby in my body, because I have stupid hair and therefore deserve to die in as slow and painful a way as possible, so that my unborn baby can equally be ravaged by pain and misery. Shoot me with that gun, fire it into my eye so that it explodes, sending goo flying all over, my brains seeping out the back of my head into a small, rapidly crusting pool on the floor, matting in my hair. Do it for the world, Snake, do it for good."

    I was a very imaginative child.

    It was on Battlefield 2.... I was a US marine on a aircraft carrier waiting for a black hawk to spawn so i could jump on and go to the mainland. But, i missed out and the chopper was full before i could get on. So, what did I do? I planted C4 on it, waited for it to take off and then... blew it up with 8 allied soldiers in it

    I got banned off the server for that, but hey it was worth it. And i managed to talk my way out of a perma ban later on Absolute Win
    I hated people like you when I played BF2... :L Then again I also did the C4 blackhawk trick on that map, but only when 1 guy jumped in and left us all sitting on the carrier!
    What did you say to avoid the ban?

    When i was younger i always used to take a piece of fence out of an animal encloser on Zoo Tycoon and watched the lions chase after the poor innocent people... Muahahha *cough*.

    I know its not that bad, but at the time I thought I was an evil genius.

    Oh and on sims 2/3 I had the tendency to make a sims wife always woohoo with the maid/mechanic/etc and then make the husband walk in... Guess that one speaks for itself.. /virtual relationship destroyer..
