Glossary - Button Mashing

Verb - The act of randomly and erratically pressing buttons (with barely a clue as to what is happening) when playing a game (esp. fighting game).

This is often the strategy used by novices who haven't had time to learn the contols - but is also often employed by the experienced in desperation within the last throes of panic when about to 'die'...

Associated Noun - 'Button masher'

This insult is often used against someone who has never played a game before and doesn't know the commands - but is beating the 'insulter'. Sometimes it is used unfairly to depreciate a victory by a better player:.

'I would've beaten her at Soul Calibur if she hadn't been button mashing the whole time - typical girl!'
