Lag (n) - The delay (or latency) between an action by a player and the reaction of a video game. A show stopper. Kill joy. The bane of competitive gamers' existence.
It's my belief that youngling PC gamers suffer from more game lag than most. They're usually the ones without access to capable rigs, discretionary funds, and/or know-how in optimizing their hardware.
Nevertheless, bad lag happens to "good people," even to guys like me who keep their hardware up-to-snuff, shut down resource and network hog applications before gaming, wire in, and use a competent router.
That said, let's hear it? What's the worst game lag you've ever experienced?
