Another video game related parody about the expanding world of online gaming. Everything from Xbox Live to World of Warcraft to downloadable mods are covered. Enjoy!
(1950s – the first video games were programmed,
1972 – the release of Pong,
1977 – the first home video game system was released,
1978 – the first online MUD was developed,
1984 – the first MMORPG is available to players,
2002 – Xbox Live pushes the bar for online console gaming,
2006 – Whether on their Xbox 360 or on their PC, many fans of video gaming are turned into--),
--We're all freaking online gamers!

I'm-a gamer, online gamer,
Online gamer,
Online gamer, online gamer,
Online gamer,
Online gamer, online gamer,
Oh, oh, oh, online gamer,
(Yeah, please re-insert controller, first player),

If you see me kicking your butt,
Armored from head to toe, armed with some mean guns,
Throwin' and blowin' mean stuff,
You're creamed up,
I am blinged up,
My gamerscore is more than any dork who ever came before,
If you see my name in the lobby for Halo 2,
Then you should get out if you know what's good for you,
Because as soon as I hear the whistle, I am going to,
Destroy these chickens, that is you and your entire crew,
(Ya!),
If you see me online with a mine,
What an unfortunate find because I'll kick your behind,
If you see me, rewind, you might as well be blind,
You've got a handicap, yet you're still easy to find,
If I've, got my warthog and all you've got is a log,
Everybody shows me love, it doesn't matter where they're from,
You hear my name in a global fuss, the world's scared of us,
Everybody knows, it's no rocket science, because,

I'm-a gamer, online gamer,
Online gamer,
Online gamer, online gamer,
Online gamer,
Online gamer, online gamer,
Oh, oh, oh, online gamer,
(Yeah, on my PC, a real player),
Online gamer, online gamer,
Online gamer,
Online gamer, online gamer,
Online gamer,
Online gamer, online gamer,
Oh, oh, oh, online gamer,
(Yeah, in Azeroth, I am a player),

I am a warrior bad like a word, you heard?
I'm gettin' experience from these dummies, killin' dragons like birds,
I'm a player in the auction house,
I'm a player when I'm not, my epic weapon's my spouse,
Click my mouse,
I don't want no 40 ridin' his new horse mount,
I don't want no level 50, if you can count,
I don't want no dork who can't kill an orc,
No I don't, that's how it goes, everyone around knows who I am,
I am a gamer level 60,
Killin' dragons since 2 or 3,
Maxed out gold, you see?
I'm in hot pursuit of a bot to loot,
Whether it's crossbow, gun, I've got lots to shoot,
And I'm pulling out the longsword,
And showing you what it's for,
I'm slicing through your armor,
While you are screaming "no more",
Your new and I'm a haxxor,
I told you level 54,
I'm givin' all you what for,
And some more,
Group loot score,

I'm-a gamer, online gamer,
Online gamer,
Online gamer, online gamer,
Online gamer,
Online gamer, online gamer,
Oh, oh, oh, online gamer,
(Yeah, I'm hackin' systems "cuz I'm a haxxor gamer),
Online gamer, online gamer,
Online gamer,
Online gamer, online gamer,
Online gamer,
Online gamer, online gamer,
Oh, oh, oh, online gamer,
(Install all files into the game source folder),

Never ever settle for not having more,
(Yeah),
That's why these geeks buy the games up for their PCs,
(Yeah),
As soon as we get our hands on a devo. kit,
(What?),
If you can imagine a mod, someone is making it,
(Yeah),
Oh, when you're modding, learn this lesson when you install,
Always make back up copies of each file,
That way when it goes wrong and your game is completely spent,
You weren't a dope and overwrote so it is gone or bent,
Download new weapons, skins, and additions to the story,
Download mods to make the levels extra gory,
Who cares if each download is raising your warrant,
Always go around, to confuse them, use different torrents,
For all those Sims 2 gamers, throw your skins up!
For all you Hot Coffee players, throw your sins up!
This is forever, baby, modding all my games,
Jack Thomson is watching me but that will probably never change!

I'm-a gamer, online gamer,
Online gamer,
Online gamer, online gamer,
Online gamer,
Online gamer, online gamer,
Oh, oh, oh, online gamer,
(Yeah, on Xbox Live, I am a gamer!),
Online gamer, online gamer,
Online gamer,
Online gamer, online gamer,
Online gamer,
Online gamer, online gamer,
Oh, oh, oh, online gamer,
(Yeah, on my PC, I am a gamer!),
I'm-a gamer, online gamer,
Online gamer,
Online gamer, online gamer,
Online gamer,
Online gamer, online gamer,
Oh, oh, oh, online gamer,
(Yeah, on PS3, I'll be a gamer!),
Online gamer, online gamer,
Online gamer,
Online gamer, online gamer,
Online gamer,
Online gamer, online gamer,
Oh, oh, oh, online gamer,
(Yeah! On GameCube, I'm not a player!),
Online gamer, Online gamer, Online gamer,
Online gamer,
(No stoppin' me!)
Online gamer, Online gamer,
Online gamer.
I'll see YOU on Xbox Live!

Well done- 5s. @KSS, yes the Brown Box and its German-born engineer started the first real game system from 1968 onward although I remember reading a book about the early German Videophone from the 1930s and remarks that the 5" screen with limited lines of resolution wasn't that good and would at best be developed into a child's toy! Wow! Was that prophetic, or what? Nazi Germany established a video link line from one city to another, but videophones never caught on. It died with WW2, the Luftwaffe developing televison-guided ASMs (Hs-293D) instead and TV plane DFS Kfz for recon. Also, in the late 1990s or early 2000s a group in Germany invented the "Painstation" which was a console that demanded each player put on hand on a metal pad. When they lost a point with the video game onscreen (flat type, lying horizontal) they would receive either an electrical shock of growing intensity or a metal strip thumping that would cause a welt or worse (some people bled)! The game was an art/academic thing but there was a demand for it with hardcore gamers and yet was not put into production for obvious liability reasons. It was a scaled-down real version of the device in the 1984 independent Bond "Never Say Never" film. FYI
