Button Mashing (verb)

Insanely, randomly, and stupidly smashing down buttons on the game controller hoping that some deity will take pity and let your character perform an actual move. This is usually done by panic-manniquins, idiots, or those who have lost all hope.

Button mashing is most common during fighting games crappily programmed American games. For instance: button mashing in Tony Hawk Pro Skater will get you left in the dust. Button Mashing in Killer Instinct and MK3 can easily get you a win.
