I want to say it's "dirtbag." It's pretty great.

cunt

@ItBeStefYo:

Such a beautiful word. Hard to believe it can even be used as an insult.

@doosmacleod: Yeah. Those "single female listeners" don't know what's up.

@ItBeStefYo:

I'm a single female lawyer and i love the word cunt*

* disclaimer: none of that is true.

He usually says "Suits" in a negative manner.

#8 Posted by RollingZeppelin (1975 posts) -

It's clearly Jeff "anime is for jerks" Gerstmann

#9 Posted by Old_Corncob (134 posts) -

In "I love Mondays" today, he uses the term "4X" with the most derisive tone I could imagine.

You could hear Vinnie's heart breaking.

#10 Posted by Tim_the_Corsair (3065 posts) -

"seriously, fuck those guys! Euggghhh" seems to come up often

#11 Posted by NathHaw (2779 posts) -

"Just gross!"

"Middling"

#12 Posted by bibamatt (1088 posts) -

"Fine"

I thought that this was going to be a post about "Anime is for jerks" by some new alt account by the sonic the hedgehog guy.

#14 Posted by LTSmash (626 posts) -

I enjoy when he describes something as "buh-roken".

#15 Posted by CaLe (3985 posts) -

He once called Ryan a 'pecker'. Cutting to the bone right there.

#16 Posted by Scrawnto (2450 posts) -

My favorite is when he says something "is for garbage people." I don't know what his favorite is.

No he didn't he was just saying what genre it was. You read into that waaaay to much. OP is probably correct, though scumbag is another good one.

YOU'RE A DISMISSIVE INSULT!

#20 Posted by mosespippy (4185 posts) -

Hot Garbage is probably my favourite Jeffism.

#21 Posted by LD50 (415 posts) -

"Mousy Dumbass" in reference to the character he created for The Secret World.

#22 Posted by WelshCleats (34 posts) -

Yeah, "Hot Garbage" is pretty great. "Buh-roken" has a place, but is more specific to games. You goddamn dirtbags.

"Hot Garbage"

Gotta agree with this one too

That one's my favorite.

#25 Posted by Sbaitso (534 posts) -

"made by people who hate people who play games" is pretty good. I think it's a pretty shitty thing to say about a game/developer(especially when a lot of people like said game/developer) but I believe he's said it more than once.

"it's. . . yeah, it's fine. it's fine."

#28 Edited by Trilogy (2655 posts) -

When he calls a game, "poop from a butt".

Stay classy, Jeff.

Yep, this one.
#30 Posted by Sbaitso (534 posts) -
@Trilogy That one sounds like more of a vinnyism.

I suddenly find myself disappointed it isn't.

Jeff was the one who coined it. At least publicly.

Trust me, I take my poop humor very seriously. So does Jeff.

I thought it was "Asians are a jerk".

#34 Posted by thebipsnbeeps (550 posts) -

Something about asses.

My exact response to people when they ask me what the Bombcast is about.

#36 Posted by jmood88 (394 posts) -

"pinball"

#37 Posted by Zleunamme (666 posts) -

The frame rate is pretty janky. The game is okay.

I second this motion
#39 Posted by SirOptimusPrime (2009 posts) -

On a related note, whenever Jeff finds a game middling he says that it isn't "actively on fire".

Dunno why, but I love that.

"YOU'RE a dismissive insult!" (replace "dismissive insult" with nonsensical appropriation of insultee's last used adjective+noun combo or point of contention, to hilarious effect)

"YOU'RE every day at the office!" and "YOU'RE a bunch of apples!", both aimed at Ryan, remain my favorite instances of this.

#41 Posted by Tim_the_Corsair (3065 posts) -
@Sbaitso I need to ask, are you named for Dr SBAITSO?

Because if you are then I think I love you
#42 Posted by rynbeed (143 posts) -

I feel like him saying "Great" tends to be him most dismissive insult...

#43 Posted by ToTheNines (722 posts) -

when a game is good

"yeeeeah, it's alright"

#44 Posted by madmanmaple89 (64 posts) -

After playing thousands and thousands of games, I think Jeff is broken down and rarely enjoys games these days.

#45 Edited by punkxblaze (2985 posts) -

Hot garbage, gross, buh-roken, ridiculous (note, not RIDICULOUS, ridiculous. See: Prototype 2 debate between he and Vinny), x is for bad people, x are bad people, you are a bad person.

Oh, and who could forget, 'ugly game'.

The list goes on.

Crystal Bearer.

#48 Posted by Zaccheus (1793 posts) -

I agree with the other right-minded people and say "hot garbage" is the best one.

#49 Posted by ImHungry (377 posts) -

I find it terrifying that "hot garbage" is at least partially integrated into my own speech patterns.
