Moms Against Gaming is the next best thing on Twitter

2 min read


If you think of overbearing, controlling mother figures, I’m pretty sure Norma Bates makes it fairly close to the top of that list. Now imagine Norma Bates had her very own Twitter account, only this time it was focused on how games are the single worst sin on this good green Earth.

That’s a little bit of what the new best Twitter account in the world, Moms Against Gaming, is like. Up until now the Kaz Hirai parody account held a special place in my humorous heart, but this new account is quickly shooting up the ranks.

I came across it yesterday after quite a few people starting retweeting a few of their “messages”. Funnily enough a lot of people took them to heart, which just made the entire account that much better. Some of the replies they’ve already received include the regular “you’re an idiot” comments, mixed with a healthy dose of misogyny and death threats. Thankfully this is all just fun and games.

Some gems the account has already produced include:

And my personal favourite, which came as a response to the account shortly after it was created.

There’s literally tons more on the account itself, and there’s enough funny there to keep you entertained for at least the rest of the day. I think the only thing better than the official tweets from the account are the people posting messages of support to the cause. The internet really is a breeding ground for the stupid sometimes, but thankfully we get to laugh at all of them.

Know of any other great Twitter parody accounts? I’d love to know, I live off these things.

      I second that… There are the kind of stupid out there on the internet that will believe that and make things worse for the rest of the market. My dad would have given me a back hand and asked me if i was stupid or something! <— True story

        I just got paid $7500 working off my computer this month. And if you think that’s cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $8k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do,—-

          My PC’s graphics card is too low end for this to work. Nice try though.

        • Sk3tz0

  • Pieter Smal

    I am a Christian… but the one about “my son thought he could get games off steam… doing the lord’s work” had me rolling in tears! ;D

    Troll/satire account. Like

  • Skuifspeld

    Sorry, grammar Nazi hat on: It’s breeding ground, not breading ground.

  • Sir Rants A Lot Llew. Jelly!!!

    Fffffff. Why did no one tell me it’s a parody account before I raged?

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      We know how happy raging makes you. It’s just like when we troll you without telling about it beforehand. 😉

      • Sir Rants A Lot Llew. Jelly!!!

        Gee thanks guys. So much love 🙂

  • Sageville

    The steam one was priceless!

    • Hammersteyn

      Agreed, now let me put the kettle on, I need some new games!

  • MichaelMatusowsky

    @evilkagawa is quite a funny parody account of Shinji Kagawa at Man Utd. Think it’s the most followed football parody account on twitter at the moment.

  • Hammersteyn

    Enjoyed the Bates Motel 1st season. Every episode Norman gets a little bit more unhinged.

    • Rince&Shitity

      I watched a few episodes and then heard it goes a bit too teeny bopper…

      • Hammersteyn

        Yeah kinda, between all the murder. It’s also strange seeing everyone with cell phones. Would have thought this would be set in an older time period.

        • Rince&Shitity

          That is another thing, I think it is supposed to be, but they add ‘future’ tech in…

  • Rince&Shitity

    Oh I do love the internet. And to think some people take what is said on twitter to heart.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Well that is the power of heart. I mean, twitter.

      • Rince&Shitity

        Lauren Beukes says hello 😉

        • Alien Emperor Trevor


          • Rince&Shitity

            Heathen. Go stand in the corner.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            hahahahaha. I know who she is, I’m just wondering why she says hello… & if I’ll ever read one of her books.

          • Rince&Shitity

            I went to her launch of Broken Monsters last night 🙂 She didn’t say hello to you, I was lying, sorry 🙁 Did get to chat to her though, rather cool lady.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            People are always nice to obvious psychopaths. Fear isn’t the same as like.

          • Rince&Shitity

            Not so sure. If you have ready any of her books you’d realize SHE HAS NO FEAR…

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            *read tee hee

          • Rince&Shitity

            Grrr. Shame, she was standing up on a podium reading from the book while pacing back and forth. Her heel kept landing about 1cm from the edge, think most of the audience were on edge she would fall. She did, but luckily as everyone was watching someone managed to catch her 🙂

  • Milesh Bhana

    so… they’re racist because they don’t like Cape Coloureds?

  • oVg… what castle?

    I am all for Moms against gaming. Moms should not play games. They should be spending more time in the kitchen and not on social network sites.

  • Anon A Mouse

    Sandy loves a Mom twitter account, who would have thought?
