Bull, Dan - Generation Gaming Lyrics

Monopoly was not for me
Chess made me stressed out
So the only way I could get down was with
Pocket electronics and bleeps
Ever since my Game Boy made toys obsolete
I've been a well behaved boy
That played inside and stayed off the streets
Yes, so I got my electric shocks
From Tetris blocks and Mario Land
But there wasn't much room for much for mushrooms
I was the man, man
With the pad in my hand
Hammerin' at it while eating my breakfast
Bein' the best
That was the plan
Beatin' the rest
And leavin' them breathless
Please believe me
Nobody could beat me at Tetris
I fuckin' rock
Droppin' blocks like heads
I'm choppin' blocks
I was on some Next shit
And I still got a flame
For puzzle games
Like HD Hexic
But when the PC came
My gaming taste became eclectic

This day's grim (It's raining)
It's raining
What wonderful weather for gaming
The sun's blazing (The sun's blazing)
So let's stay in
It's wonderful weather for gaming

I was the geeky one
I really wanted a PC CD-ROM
And got it
8-mega RAM
A CRT screen
She was some top kit
Free moments were devoted
To keystrokes
And the odd click
Far more into dark forces then
Even the Star Wars kid
And Civilization II is a brilliant game
That you really should play and I still do today
Computer games improve your brain
It's proven, mate
So if you behave in stupid ways
Then please refrain from blaming GTA
I really hate excuses
I may just shoot my teacher's face
Nah, I'm already embroiled
In getting these Tesla coils
Ready in my base
The Russians are comin'
With trucks full of gunmen
I need to be safe
But maybe the green beret
Could lead the way
And see us through
At least till we replace
The PC games
With PS2

This day's grim (It's raining)
It's raining
What wonderful weather for gaming
The sun's blazing (The sun's blazing)
So let's stay in
It's wonderful weather for gaming

Takin' control of
Somebody else's console
With no remorse
I was so debauched
My only thoughts
Were total scores on Tony Hawk's
Or runnin' amok
In Smuggler's Run
Smugglin' guns and drugs
For fun
And pullin' a gun on
Any NPC I see or stumble upon
GTA III made me inclined
To kill repeatedly
The spinal chills of Silent Hill
Are still on my mind and
Creepin' me the fuck out
Look out, pull out your sawn-off shotgun
'Cause there's a hot zombie nurse
That wants to hurt you
And cut off your oxygen
But as much as asphyxiation
May be lots of fun
I've got a crush, a fixation
With PlayStation
I'm in love
So I said to the PS2
"Me and you need a breather"
Then in 3 clicks
I ordered an Xbox 360 off eBay

This day's grim (It's raining)
It's raining
What wonderful weather for gaming
The sun's blazing (The sun's blazing)
So let's stay in
It's wonderful weather for gaming

So we switched teams to the 360
Glitch free
Lots of slick features
HD, HDD, I don't miss leads
Gears is my gear
But I gets my hits from Hitman
The BioShock has Mass Effect
As I sink into Oblivion
Splinter Cell's mint as well
And Rainbow Six takes no prisoners
It's the business
And the cover system's fuckin' wicked
Duckin' and chuckin' a frag
Blind fire from behind
Piles of rubble and zippin' them up in a bag
I'm lovin' the lack of health packs
Puttin' a plaster on a fracture
Or a shrapnel gash
What the hell's that?
In the new generation
of computer gamin'
You hold the left trigger half way down
Or let the computer do the aiming
So what are you complainin' for
"The Forza scoreboard's been reset"
Shut up and improve your Gamerscore
Before you get the dreaded Red Ring of Death

This day's grim (It's raining)
It's raining
What wonderful weather for gaming
The sun's blazing (The sun's blazing)
David's raiding
It's wonderful weather for gaming

    Idiosyncratic Allan

    @cptnjackharkness Or Zach Sherwin or Mac Lethal, George Watsky, Epic Lloyd, and TONS more.

    I think what he's saying is that Dan Bull is the one match to Eminem's extremely complex lyricism in the niche that is video game rap

    Jacob Rowan

    @The Dragonborn I understand, I just like spreading knowledge, I know you understand.

  56. David Lingemark

    This is the song that started my journey into Dan Bull music, back when I found it on Machinima Videogame songs..
    And my oh my, has Dan grown and made some awesome songs. Still, whenever my mood is shitty, or I just want a pick-me-up. I come to this song, for it's a classic in my head.

    i really like dan bull but where the fuck is the EPIC button at this vid?

  85. BGE Maine

    Actually...I accidentally replied to your comment.

    So no, little boy.
    I wasn't trying to "Burn" you.

    You continue to say "Practice what you preach" Is that the only intelligent thing that comes from that brain of yours?

    It's funny that I didn't even insult you, and you jump straight into the insults.

  86. gubbyitss

    Original statement: PC requires no payment to stay online.
    The comment you replied to: PC does require payment to stay online.
    What you read: Xbox and Playstation do not require payments to stay online.

  87. Kenny Veillieux

    oh...oh my you got me, well well Mr. telling everyone to get a life... you are very much so a hypocrite, and maybe you should practice what you preach?
    didn't you say something about doing something more productive? Honestly kid, you will have to step up your game if you wanna try to...Burn me? is that what you kid's use these days?

  88. BGE Maine

    I'm sorry if I seemed hypocritical, Miss.

  89. Kenny Veillieux

    Cool story bro.

  90. BGE Maine

    Just because I don't follow my own advice, doesn't mean it's not actually advice.

    A name is a name, the internet is supposed to be for Anonymous people.

    Clone Trooper was a random name I was given.

    Would you like to hear more about this little story, or would you rather do something more productive?

  91. Kenny Veillieux

    (agreeing with you but...) There's no Xbox 2..... yet, at the rate Microsoft is going calling their new Xbox "Xbox one" there just might be one sometime in the future....however i do hope not.

  92. Kenny Veillieux

    Coming from someone who called their account "Clone Trooper" and is trying to insult people on youtube.

    Practice what you preach.

  93. Kenny Veillieux

    You know, i thought maybe someone with some brains might try to think of a good come back or something, you know... a possible intellectual argument of sorts.... instead i got you... and some guy who think's you don't need Wifi to play Xbox or play station online....Also i now remembered... this is youtube, full of idiots such as yourself and that other guy who also failed at having a good come back about wifi.

  94. Kenny Veillieux

    lol... try playing Playstation or xbox online with no wifi smart one.

  95. Shark the Fox


  96. Lobozo

    wait do you mean Xbox One or Xbox One

  97. djole0501

    it's still pc doe

  98. Enoom Nai

    Actually it is whoever you end up with
