Button-masher

compounding; noun
Refers to a person who plays video games and presses buttons on the controller really fast. Usually is an insult, said in a way that makes them sound unskilled (as if the button presses are random and not actually with a pattern), but this is not always the case. Usually refers to role-playing games or fighting games, but this is not strict.
 
By the worn look of his controller, we could easily tell Seth was a button-masher.
Etymology : Compound of button (as in something with a function that is pressed) and masher (as in smashing or flattening), and is specific to video gaming and describes a certain play style.
