    [OT]Where did gg originate?

    i see it all the time in cs, warcraft 3, and other multiplayer games.

    where did this phrase come from?

    uh, its short for good game

    obviously someone got tired of typing good game every time they played and put gg instead.

      from multiple people that just saw that it was a much easier way of saying "good game" and/or "good going"

      the second one is confusing when some1 says it mid-game... annoying to say the least

          i know what it means. i just wanted to know what game started it.

          i know it must be some really really old game like doom or quake or something like that.

            I'd imagine it would have spread pretty quickly from the very dawn of multiplayer gaming. =)

            meh, I say 'jeejee'. It's cuter.

                    Are you asking about the origin of the phrase "good game" or the use of the acronym "gg?"

                    :up:

                          Don't mean to hijack the thread, but what does "idd" stand for, I am sure I will feel stupid that I couldnt figure it out.
