This one reminds me of how, back when Par was playing Tomb Raider, I used to make fun of Lara Croft by bumping into walls, murmuring "oof" and then rocking slightly on my heels for a while, staring at the wall.  I may have done that a bit more often than was strictly warranted.  Though I never play first-person shooters, I've discovered they're surprisingly fun to emulate.

This was much funnier the second time watching it without explaining every joke to a confused little boy demanding to know whether this was ableism.

What is amazing to me is that I have never played a single game of this type, ever, but they are enough a part of our culture that I was able to explain every single joke.
