Rudy Gay Called Out for Being a ‘Camper’ in Call of Duty Video Game

Memphis Grizzlies forward Rudy Gay was a guest on The Jim Rome Show Tuesday and talked about a video game grudge match he had scheduled with Mavs guard Jason Terry. Gay and Terry squared off in Call of Duty: Black Ops at Treyarch Studios later on Tuesday, but before that Gay revealed what type of player he is in the popular multi-player shooting game.

“I’m one of those guys that just hides,” Gay told Rome. “Everyone just runs around so I can shoot ’em.”

Though Rome isn’t much of a video gamer, he called Gay out for his boring gaming style known as “camping.” According to the unimpeachable source that is Urban Dictionary, being a camper is “Usually the sign of a bad player who thinks they are the best.”

Later in the show, Nationals reliever Drew Storen, who was an in-studio guest, called out Gay for his refusal to engage during the game.

“It’s definitely punk. It’s kind of like cherry picking in a pickup basketball game — it might be effective, but you’re not really winning friends by doing it,” Storen explained. “It’s not my style; I’m more of a run-and-gun type guy, I’m not worried about the stats, I just like running around and having a good time.”

I’ve never played COD and I’m not a gamer, but I will say this: don’t people play these games for fun? Unless you’re like the NFL players who bet mortgage payments on the game, shouldn’t you be a good sport when you’re playing?
