Japanese Twitter has been blowing up with a trending tag challenging users to describe their favorite games in a boring way. One of the top trends on May 9th was #好きなゲームをつまらなさそうに紹介する, and many Twitter users came up with some summaries that are just pure gold.

Maybe e-sports athletes can just set their controllers down and hash it out like real men. Rock, paper, scissors, shoot!
