It's not winning that matters, it's taking part

Wow, this game looks good! Too bad I've never played it before.

Well, I'll give it a shot.

Whoa, someone is challenging me to a match!

Time to rumble!

Hey, this guy is good . . .

... he's beating me pretty badly!

This guy is such a noob!

Wow, I just got owned.

Slang

Give it a shot: This means to try something.

Example: I'm not sure if this will get the lights back on, but we should still give it a shot.

Time to rumble: This is a very confident way of saying 'Let's start.'

Example: Looks like my race-car is ready to start the race. Time to rumble!

Noob: This is a short way of saying newbie, or a person who is new to something. 'Noob' is used primarily when gaming.

Example: This guy is so bad at this game. He's such a noob.

Owned: To be 'owned' is to be beaten very badly at something, usually a sports match, or a computer game.

Example: HKIS' basketball team owned our basketball team today.
