"No because in 2014 people who play PC games don't use their PC to go to websites and talk about the game they're playing. They use many social networks, but it takes special skills to use a forum. Thus they play PC games while blissfully ignorant.  Only a skilled vocal minority go to forums and talk about PC games." -Idiot

There seem to be a lot of fanboys/ haters who want to derail threads about a game they dislike.  Someone may come on here wanting to discuss a certain aspect of a game they play, then there is a core of regular posters who will search out that forum and deliberately derail the thread or turn it into a cess pit of non-sensical circular argumentative twattery.  That just seems to be the way with these forums.  



This is why I try to stay out of specific game forums. I am not playing them, so I don't care what is going on. I will confess to my trouble staying out of the TES:O forum as sometimes, the thread titles (seen on the front page) will pull me in. But really, I do try :)

[EDIT]
As far as the topic question, only a small percentage of players that play games will visit forums of any kind. Do the players here at MMORPG.com represent the majority of players playing games? No. Not even close. The vast majority of players buy their games and play them. They may visit a forum if they have a question or experience trouble in the game, but rarely hang around after their questions/troubles are answered.

Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

If this forum were a representation of all people who play games, games would have no players in them. This place is a hive of negativity because everyone who finds something they enjoy moves on to the official forums. You can't browse forums here and actually continue to enjoy the games you play because everyone is so negative about every game no matter the quality.

I would think there is a decent percentage of MMO gamers who read forums pertaining to their favorite games and gaming.  But what you HEAR on forums always tends to be dominated by a small, noisy, whiney minority.

This site, like almost every other MMO site out there, doesn't represent much at all.  Look at the number of members vs the users online vs the number of posts, and I'm guessing the number of posts is since this site has been created which is at least 5 years old. So do the math, you got 2 million members posting once every world cup of soccer.  That is why the Hype meter on this site needs to be removed, it is pointless. You got games hyped at 8.0+ and on release they are a steaming load of trash that are worth 3.0 out of 10 at best.

I think it should go as well. But, I am just over point scoring systems in general. They have become archaic and are not fairly representative of anything. That said, don't the scores on this site come from meta critic (which has a lot more people giving the ratings then we have here viewing them)?

Qualifiers for failing to deliver on story (in a supposedly story driven MMORPG):
If my character starts out ship wrecked on a beach.
If my character has amnesia; But, is also somehow the chosen one.
If my character has a place of origin that they will likely never set foot in until mid-high level.

I come to a forum, I contribute.

 

I wasn't aware of any expert requirements. You want expertise, read dev blogs.

The only way it COULDN'T be a representation of people who play games is if every single person who posts here DOESN'T play a game. So the answer is obviously yes. No ifs, ands, or buts about it.

No we are the 2-ish% of the gaming community who can tell our posterior from our elbow.. =P We are the as you say the invested "elite" the ones who take an active interest in the genre. The tricky part is that while "we" are not representative in any way shape or form "we" are not one of a kind either. "we" as other have posted exists in every community and genre and "we" behave pretty much the same. In fact "we" are one of the most common and wide spread "types" of people out there and pretty much everybody who belong to the "middle class" or higher does at one point or another in their life belong to "us"

 

As for the arguing... Is there any other sake then arguing it self that has any point to it. We are to small to make a differecne and way to loud to be taken serious. Very few of us are employed in the "biz" and most have a staggering overestimation of their skill and knowledge. So we do what we can... We argue and bicker like a bunch of old women.

 

And you know what... It is glorious. =) =D

This have been a good conversation

No it isn't.  That is not human behaviour,  That is someone acting like a prick because they are anonymous on the internet and they have many inadequacies in real life they need to compensate for.  In the real world it is not normal human behaviour.  

You guys are both correct (to a degree)

 

It IS human nature to want to be part of a 'group' and many fanboys and haters gravitate towards extreme views as a result. Also take into account trolls who often push the issue(s) - I myself am guilty of this.

The Internet has taken "debate" to a whole nother level- People take shit waaaay too personal. As if by "attacking the game they play" you are "attacking their mother" and corporations love this- They WANT you to identify with a "Brand" and often people get really caught up in that identity.

For example- I often debate (strongly) with freinds about Politics ,gaming and even who is better- Batman or Superman. These debates are heated and we honestly take opposing views we strongly believe in- But we are friends. I am not friends with 99.999999% of the people on the internet so often debate is taken as "hate" when its really..Debate.

And people who take offense as to what game is better, if Nike is better than Addidas or if batman is cool and Superman is gay - Have issues of being caught up in a "brand" and marketing and thus their opinion is moot since they have no objectivity. nsulting the game they play is like calling their mom an "ugly bitch" and those are "fighting words"- Its kind of funny really.

 

Marketers have done a job on this generation (and previous generations as well but not to this extent)

I should have said that is is not real because on the internet there are no repercussions.  If you went too far with your argument and your friend no longer spoke to you, or knocked you out, then that acts as a boundary.  Likewise if you are in the public eye and opinion turns against you, that is another boundary.  The internet provides someone who in real life has very little competence to turn other people to their point of view, with the anonymity to just berate others with no fall out.  

You cannot walk around in real life antagonising people without repercussions.  This forum becomes a sounding board for the weak and ineffectual.    

  

If I went too far with a debate and was punched- The "friend" would go to jail.

Not sure about you but my friends dont generally throw fisticuffs due to hating on their "game"- Not the people I hang with.

Going "too far" with an opinion sounds like PC garbage. Who determines what "too far" is. The fanboy will say anything they disagree with.

My friends and I have some very heated debates. At the end of the day they are debates and nothing personal. I am not insulting their children but their view on a certain topic (see the difference)

I have a suspicion you are one of those fanboys that think you must defend your chosen "brand". Could be mistaken but...You gunna beat me up now?

This really had to be explained to you?

no

A forum is probably less than 1% of the gaming population. So the good and the bad people you find here are a tiny number and by no means represent people who play games as a whole.

My endgame begins with character creation and ends with a new mmorpg
