The worst online gaming community? - Page 12

post #111 of 163
This thread should have been about which games have good online communities.


ANY game requiring no patience will attract players who have zero patience.

Zero patience can also be found in people with low maturity.

Low maturity can be found primarily in youth.

Parents let the majority of kids play games they should never be allowed to legally.

Parents also primarily don't get that involved with video games (at least my parental generation still has trouble with the mouse.)

There is hardly anything one can consider a true consequence for being racist, obnoxious, ragetarded, or other forms of douche-baggery.

With the level of voice recognition we have and some decent chat filters, I am surprised something like Live hasn't implemented temporary bans for racist remarks or swearing.

I think Xbox Live is Terrible. I think WoW chat made me quit the game for 13th & final time (cross fingers.) PS3 chat is virtually no existent in some games, which doesn't make it great just missing, but the voicing is just as bad as Live when you have some 13 year old talk about orgies with animals is just... unpleasant.

Some pleasant experiences:
Civilization 3 to 5, CoD: Black Ops (Tactical Server <- No Joke), non-Pub BC2, ARMA 2, Football Manager 2009/2010.

Anything that seems adult or even intellectual orientated, or just requiring a bit more patience, seems to weed out the... weeds smile.gif

While i was visiting a video game convention it had the latest tekken for the ps3. I was by no means a Tekken fan. I tried that game to see how it plays, then a kid around 13-14 turns up and invites me to play. I thought i was going to lose, he is way better.yet i beat him without knowing how. The whole time the kid was very polite and called me Sir. Difficult to imagine that such a kid can swear,shout and rant online, probably with his friends nearby.

That is why i avoid online games.

well, i don't have much of a $.02 to put in here because i'm pretty new to PC gaming but alot of what i've read in thread is absolutely ridiculous and somewhat pathetic. As an adult,husband and dad who works full time, it's nice to unwind and play a few video games now and then to relax, but i'm not sure how much online gaming i'll be doing after reading this. It would be nice for a few ADULTS to get together one afternoon or W/E and play a few games without being called racial slurs,names by some 14yr. old kid who wants to talk tough over the internet because you shot him in some video game. is it that bad on Steam? It sounds like for the most part though, people on this forum are not that way and are kind of like me, which is why i think this forum is great and very helpful!!

ltg,

These are horror stories. Generally, you don't run into this kind of behavior all to often (IMO). However, if you do, most modern games DO include a MUTE button/setting. Worst case, if your game doesn't support that, you can always disable voice via options/settings (which won't get rid of your sound, but just let you play your game). However, in the games that communication is important (assuming there is no mute feature [which is hard to believe]) you can always report the player to the admin, the server owners, and/or the service/game team/owners.

gl hf!

After going through this thread, it seems like people just jumped on the WoW hate band wagon. It isn't nearly as bad as everyone says it is. Yes, it does have some idiocy to it, but it is not a constant wave, it just comes in spikes. I've played since vanilla beta and it really isn't as bad as everyone says it is. Every xpac I have switched from raiding to pvp and vice versa, and been on every type of server. Pvp servers are however the worst, but by no means is it as bad as you guys make it out to be. Back when I was on Kil'Jaeden and Blackrock, 85% of trade chat was...trade.

Back to topic, my opinion of the worst community is the Counterstrike community.

oh and also - I forgot to add - when I play mw2 nowadays on XBL I always mute every1 (have been doing it for the past year or so) - which probably explains why it doesn't seem so bad to me
