This is what I put in the 'Even Family Guy Loves Waffles' thread:

Quote by Meta:


Originally, "waffle" was used to replace the word "whore."
This was due to the popularity of the terms "scorewhore" and "Achievement whore," as in people that compromise their usual gaming 'standards' and play games they normally wouldn't just to get Gamerscore & Achievements.

After that definition of waffle stuck, it started to get used a little more broadly. A "waffle" as a noun on its own came to mean a game that may not be very good but had quick and/or easy Achievements/Gamerscore. We likened this to eating a waffle, which is quick to fix and tasty to eat but ultimately not very substantial or healthy.

Then came the verb form--"to waffle" meant to play a game expressly for the Gamerscore and/or Achievements. This can be conjugated out to whatever time and tense are needed: I waffle, you waffle, he/she/it waffles, I waffled, they are waffling, he/she/it will waffle.

Lastly, it can used colloquially to describe the effort required or difficulty in attaining Gamerscore and/or Achievements from a certain games. In this form, it is often a portmanteau: "Yeah man, Assassin's Creed 2 had some serious wafflitude," or "So how is the wafflage in that new Disney game?"

Game reviews may include a section describing a title's "waffle factor", which compares it to other "waffles" in terms of how long Achievements take, how much effort the Gamerscore requires, etc.

You guys should definitely get together with Melissa to make a concise, standardized definition for 'waffle' so we can all start spamming urbandictionary with it!

My post in the other thread:

Quote by PureEvil x21:


Yeah I remember Melissa has said on more than one occasion in the Grinds My Gears thread, version 1.0 may it R.I.P., that it grinds her gears that her word is so greatly mis-used.

I can see how it got to be mis used, it started as a substitute for the word whore. We are all Gamerscore whores, so we are all GS Wafflers, easy games are the easiest of all whore games, so they, in turn, became waffles themselves. And it just stuck from there.

I also was not here back at the time this phrase was coined. But I like how it is used.

@Skins, maybe just modify it to include the origin of the word and give credit to Melissa, either as MelissaEvol, LadyEVOL, or PSORaine. Whichever she prefers. Also try to include XBA, even if it is just those 3 letters, (X-B-A). At least all of us would understand that XBA is our "home"

Don't forget to add that the orignal use of the word by Melissa was actually NOT related to games, achievements, or gamerscore at all. She actually used the word waffle to replace the word "whore" in attention whore. She was describing a type of female gamer.

Yeah, I know, but it's posted under Deeper Discussions and I'm assuming this is serious.

Wouldn't it be easy to say a Waffle is an easy 360 game to complete and then give it a bunch of good thumbs up?
