    In gaming non-fail is used a lot more than fail- interesting topic.

    Sadly, y’all forgot about one of the greatest products of the fail movement: the Fail Whale. It may have started with Twitter, but now it’s everywhere. It’s just one step behind Epic Fail. I enjoyed the discussion nevertheless.
