FROM MTVNEWS.COM: The Game utterly destroyed Bow Wow last September when the two ended weeks of back-and-forth of Internet trash-talking and faced off in a game of "Madden" -- in front of a live crowd. The Game's team of the Patriots destroyed B-Dub's squad of choice 55-23.

"Still Alive," a cultural phenomenon since it was first heard, is just that big with gamers.
