My fellow gamers,

There are days when i scrounge around different forums, around You Tube and other video sites that talk about and show gaming, i watch skilled groups in large raids in games like Wow or FF Online or an amazing PvP on AC, or even watch someone talk fondly about TR or Earth and Beyond...it's a nice experience to have somebody show or talk about something that have an obvious passion for and to be able to be part of it, if only by reading/watching it.

Then i get to the comments.

Large groups of people who slam, insult, threaten, bully, and chastise this person (or group of people) for something they enjoy....now of course i realize that a good part of these comments are trolls with more than a little time on their hands who preach about how much of a life they have while posting one hate-filled comment after the next, but there are also the ones who out and out know this game or even the player or players who posted it who do the same....and these are the one's i cannot understand.

O.K. so they played the game and either disliked it or liked it for a time, got bored, and split....fine, fine...moving on to greener pastures and all that, but why do they feel the need not only to slam the game but also slam the people playing it? it would be like me getting annoyed because my friend bought a car i once owned for years but sold because i wanted something else...what's the point? what does it solve? it's not my money he spent and it must've at least been good for awhile because i owned it myself for years.

When it's put like that it doesn't really make much sense, does it?

And yet it continues.

I don't understand the disrespect gamers show eachother, maybe it's because i'm seasoned and i remember gaming in a softer light, i dunno but i do know one thing.....it has to stop.
