Totally agree.. 100%

Everywhere you look everyone's letting you down and it's as if you've lost your last place to hide in the world and you don't know where to run. Seriously dude, grow a ball sack and stop being such a panty-waste. Might as well give up gaming, too. Probably can't tell fantasy from reality anyway!!
Yeah, I love you too...

It's good to know, Eli. The article is cool on PT, but bashing TA and S2P? Not so much. Not everybody has an agenda, you know.

My post was basically a call to arms to my fellow gamers that stands higher of these pseudo-reviewers who bash a good game just to attract bandwidth to their websites...

This is how I have felt for a while. To the OP: I know what you mean about the community, but don't let that stop you from giving up on a hobby you enjoy

There are plenty of places out there - like TA! - that are full of the more adult/mature sort of gamers you are looking for.

^qtf^

Really hard to say it much clearer than that... I might add the "internet toughguy/bully" and the "armchair moderator" into the mix, but yeah, the principle remains the same... tough to learn, but eject and focus indeed...

I sometimes think it is entertaining to read alot of stuff on the internet, and since it basically is just public domain and anonymous and free, the comments and reviews are quite humourous at times, and downright wicked at other times.

But if one takes it with a grain of salt and doesn't get mad about it, it can be interesting to view and have some fun with. Humour seems to turn around even the ugliest threads like the Dead Trigger type threads, and can often make for exciting reading on the john.

I will not get mad about video games.

Now, I am mad about videogames.

Buying and enjoying them that is.

The worst for me has got to be the "internet tough guys," the "internet PhDs," and the "armchair wanna-be mods..."

Worse when the same person plays all three roles simultaneously.

Maybe its a sense of entitlement, I mean the feeling that gaming is something exclusive to you and your peeps. I like football and I like gaming too, played both of them irl and virtually from as long as I can remember and have met lots of people who are like that, i mean real gamers who like deep ass rpgs, 4x strategy games and such and also like real sports

What im trying to write is that maybe you're suffering because youre playing the part of nerd rager a little too seriously, and have the feel that unwanted types are critizicing what you love when the reality is that gaming has became mainstream and they have the same rights you do to say whatever they want about them.

Its worth noting that not all people who enjoys games are the same, i mean my wife spends most of her free time nowadays playing Candy Crush Saga and no one would say shes a hardcore gamer, specially after seeing me tweak my Gran Turismo 5 car for a good while before even think of starting to race or wander for hours just exploring on Skyrim or Fallout.

We just need to accept the fact that this is not a geek exclusive activity now, and I really dont see anything wrong with it.

I'm not in rage or denial.
Sometimes, when I'm relaxing ay home, is nice to return to a community to discuss constructively about games. But when you used to do this to relax, and even make some friends, now you see haters, fanboys, unemployed journalists, bashers, bullies and etc. that's my gripe.

I haven't made myself clear and some comments here judge my social skills. That's just dumb, and only proves my point.
For profiling sake, not bragging, I'm a software developer, with a gorgeous gf, and bass player in a rock band and a soul/funk band. I play in pubs almost every weekend. I'm a nerd/geek yes, but not a dumbass. I'm in the community for a very long time.

I loved to waste hours debating about games in the past. Wasn't a waste of time at all to me. But now I have to literally waste my time reading through flames and Internet bullies posts until I finally manage to find a intelligent discussing with clever people like yourselves.

That's essentially why I rarely visit GFAQs any more. 99% morons. Same goes for Facebook and YouTube comments.

TA is really good in comparison.
