Electronic Gaming

This year’s Electronic Gaming Room (formerly Teen Lounge) will be just like every other year’s room—and yet completely different. There will be tracks of constant gaming all weekend long featuring the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii, as well as Classic Gaming stations, a lounge for portable gamers to chill out in, tournaments, special events and prizes, and general mayhem courtesy of the Electronic Gaming Staff.

The Rules

We’ve got some straightforward rules and regulations in Electronic Gaming, and they’re clearly posted everywhere.

Here they are:
1. No food or drink is allowed in Electronic Gaming at any time, unless you’re an Electronic Gaming staff member. Yes, we will eat right there in front of you, and make fun of you if you cry. We are trapped here all weekend, you get to leave and find sustenance at Karl’s.

2. No roughhousing. There are really no situations where body parts should be touching other body parts while in Electronic Gaming. The only real exception is when you shake the hand of the person who just defeated your ego because you’re a good sport.

3. Do not abuse any games, systems, peripherals, or staff members in Electronic Gaming. Anyone damaging equipment intentionally will have an equivalent weight in body parts removed by the VGR Staff; more likely your badge.

4. No unattended children under 12. The Electronic Gaming is funded primarily through the sales of unattended children to drunken gypsies. Well, okay, they’re not that drunken.

5. You may bring your own controllers including joysticks for use in the VGR for Open Play and Tournaments. However, don’t be a cheating cheat with them. If you cheat in open gaming you’re just being a jerk. If you cheat in a tourney, you’re being a jerk and will be kicked out of the tournament at the very least.

6. No stealing. A terrible curse is laid on those who steal from the Electronic Gaming: all your saved games will be corrupted and lost, right after you get further in your game than you ever have before. Beware!

7. No whining. Please note that this rule does not say: no suggestions, no feedback, no requests or no opinions. Just No Whining.
