My friends and I love playing Halo and we're getting ready for Halo 3 by breaking out our video-game slang. A word that gets thrown around a lot in online gaming is noob . It means someone who is shitty at video games even though they've played a ton. You can also call your opponent (or your friend) a noob when he or she uses cheap maneuvers or figures out a way to win in a less-than-honorable way. We've started using noob in daily conversation, too, not just in video games. If one of our friends does something stupid or inexperienced, we will call them a noob .
