The Gamer Graveyard refers to a website where internet users are able to "bury" their friends who quit playing video games. On the site, people can add gamer tags, usernames or any other item they think should be memorialized in the graveyard. The website was created in late November 2021 and memes about it appeared most notably on Reddit and Facebook shortly after.


The Gamer Graveyard website[1] was released on November 22nd, 2021, headed by the team behind Opera GX, a gaming-oriented version of the web browser Opera. Opera GX announced the website in a tweet[2] they posted on November 22nd (shown below), receiving 43 likes in one week.

Arabic Facebook circles also showed an early interest in the Gamer Graveyard. For instance, @TH3.professional[4] posted about it on November 23rd, 2021, and received roughly 1,000 reactions in one week.

jokes aside, I always get sad when I hear stories of "that one person I played ____ with all the time then one day they disappeared and never logged back on". this sounds like a pretty decent way to pay tribute to those old friends that never got a proper goodbye…


This comes in handy for me just because I met so many great people on the DayZ standalone in its early days (for those of you who didn't play it back then, you couldn't see the Steam accounts or even names of the people you played with. So unless you specifically said "Give me your Steam name" you would never see them again.) and literally watched most of them die unceremoniously in game and never saw them again. Rest in Peace Insert that One Guy who helped me learn the basics of DayZ that unfortunately died because of that stupid ladder glitch. You'll always be remembered.
