15? I'll assume you're in high school by now. Deductively speaking, this should mean that you understand such rudimentary concepts as composition, punctuation, grammar, and proper spelling. (Queen's English or American Standard, it's your choice)

Are you from an English speaking country? If so, there's no real excuse for your atrocious grasp of the language. If not, well, there are several posters here who have probably never spoken more than 10 sentences of English in a row, yet nonetheless, manage to type fluently. I'd recommend you start by using a word processor of your choice (Microsoft Word is quite suitable) to spell check your comments before posting.

Consider it a game! You put a bit of effort into improving your posting skills, and as a reward, you receive better treatment from the staff and respect from other posters.

LOLZ internets.

Hmm, The French schooling at an early age may account to the poor structure of sentences?

We've already been through all this before though...No point. His mind works on different tangents.

Also: on beating games and what-not...I never ever play shooters. The only one i enjoy is House Of The Dead 2, when it is in
an arcade and i get to hold a gun. I was too scared of those kind of games when i was a kid so stuck to cartoon jump and runs (no gruesome deaths) and adventure games (mainly lucas arts...again, no death). Since doing that as a kid, i was never really exposed to other games until high school...

Haha. Yeah, true. But not GRUESOME. And not sporadic and uncontrollable. I didn't die accidentally or fail to run away from a big scary man with a gun before he blew my brains out with BLOOD!! :wow:

I distinctly remember being afraid to play Commander Keen when I was younger, because I was afraid I'd ACTUALLY die if I died in the game. Like... I'd always hit escape and exit right before I knew I was going to, and start all over again.

...

Shut up.

Get Firefox 2, it has a built-in spell checker.

But speaking of death... man, when I used to play Sierra [Online] games, I used to save once(or even twice) every screen! :laugh:

Twocker, Ghouls, and Ghosts? That would be 3 games?
