Are many MMO players transforming into a disease? A festering wound slowly destroying the functioning systems in place to provide us with similar but unique experiences from MMO development companies? Is it not a vivid representation of that gluttonous house pet devouring its bowl of food in mere minutes then left yelping for more? Why do you as a MMO gamer feel it’s okay to act like a virtual snob if something wasn’t designed specifically with your ideas in mind or your strong points of game play directly catered too? Are you not that same person who detests the lady at the table across from you who complains about her mashed potatoes being too cold even though you can see the steam rising from them?
The internet has evolved into an acceptable place for rigid reviews and hate mongering as with most, if not all aspects of life. While you have a voice and can use this voice for any reason your heart desires, Why would your heart desire to oppose your own interests? When you go to a third party MMO review site much like this one you will find a lot of hate spew. Even though moderators have been cracking down, there’s just so much and they will never get it all. Now if the person posting posts their hate mongering in a legitimate format it’s possible it didn’t break any rules and then regardless to the intentions will remain and like many threads of the sorts become 427 pages long of bickering.
Just for clarification, I’m not talking about a negative review of a game that’s detailed and explains in a fair way, the former player’s opinions and perspectives on why he felt that way. Hell in some cases it can be biased as long as it truly explains who, what, when, where, and WHY the product wasn’t this users cup of tea. What I am talking about though is the thoughtless hate, for instance I recently read a thread under the Age of Conan general forums here. What it basically said was
“What a piece of ****, I have to use their patcher to download the game? What is this ****, Why is the file so big??? This is a piece of ****, and finally I finished the download and they won’t even let me use the Ranger class in the f2p model? What a piece of **** avoid this $^%&#&$^”
This could be done about any game on the market and if I see this I’m running to its defense. This like many of the spam hate trolls today are only destroying the thing they claim to love. It comes of selfish and degrading.
MMO’s aren’t fun if there isn’t a player base to play with…
So why do so many people try so hard to destroy the player bases of games they don’t like? Do you think they will leave said game to join yours? I mean they picked said game over yours in the first place so why would they go there now? Would they go there because the games are similar? If they are similar why would they swap out to begin with? Furthermore I think it’s time to spread the love…
SPREAD THE LOVE PEOPLE; because everything grows with love… hate only brings more hate.
