This is something I've been noticing for awhile, and I've seen discussed on this board, but it's the first time I've actually given it a name. Timmy Factor refers to the # of kids who play a particular game online. They're easily identified by their high-pitched voices, and common usage of terms like "pWned".

So far, I'd have to give Halo2 the highest Timmy Factor rating, a perfect 10. Even one of my favorite games, Far Cry Predator, seems to have a pretty high Timmy Factor rating.

What do you think the Timmy Factor for Gears of War will be?<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Timmys...

They come with the territory. I don't let them bother me. The mute button is so close by.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Halo 2 wins. So many Timmys, usually armed with an energy sword and voice-anonymous-er-box-thingy.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Damn, I forgot about the voice-changing thing, thanks for bringing that up. Probably one of the dumbest ideas that MS came up with.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Yeah, try playing a tactical game with that thing on. Somewhere between Darth Vader and Steven Hawking with a Yorkshire/Russian accent.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

The Timmies shouldn't be playing this this game, if they do, then their parents are not doing their jobs.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Mind, I wouldn't call "Young People" Timmys. I believe it's down to the use of their voiceboxes and newbishnessless.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Halo 2 would win by a landslide...This reminds me of when I was in the beta test for XBL, all we had to play was the demo for motogp, NFL Fever, and Whacked! I remember every kid on Whacked had a voice changer, haha, but I haven't seen too many voice changers lately...<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Usually higher then you could ever imagine. Almost up there with Halo 2.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
