A Simple and Slimy Definition of Gamer PainEvery now and then Speak Up on Kotaku eschews the long-winded for the shorter, sweeter things in life, like commenter Paradox Me's single sentence ode to the ones that get away.

About Speak Up on Kotaku: Our readers have a lot to say, and sometimes what they have to say has nothing to do with the stories we run. That's why we have a forum on Kotaku called Speak Up. That's the place to post anecdotes, photos, game tips and hints, and anything you want to share with Kotaku at large. Every weekday we'll pull one of the best Speak Up posts we can find and highlight it here.
