Gamers use 555 in the same way others use lol and lulz - to simulate laughter. This amusing slang term has its origin in the Thai language.
In Thai, the word for 5 is pronounced "ha." So listing 5 three times is the equivalent of saying "ha ha ha." While gamers have assimilated this slang term, you're also likely to see it used by those who speak or otherwise know Thai.
