Memes are taking the internet world by storm. These images are shared worldwide on Facebook and Twitter. Let's take a look at some memes and experiences that tie in with gaming.
Death is not permanent in most video games. They do usually have some penalty like items not being as tough or experience loss. It's all about the respawn, baby, and hopefully in a good spot!
Do you know this face? I am most definitely familiar with it myself. Running along in Skyrim and run up on a surprise boss. It's early in the game so I'm not as bad as I want to be. I get torn up and die. Let's go load my save game...which was two hours ago?! Freak out to begin.
