NowGamer: Rockstar posts news on pre-orders, Rockstar fans shout about second trailer, Rockstar moderators open fire. Is there any other gaming series with fans who are this demanding and this… well, offensive?
I saw the page at the time, so idiotic and childish. They literally have to wait to the end of the week for the Game Informer release, is that so much to ask for? I feel sorry for those working at Rockstar that they have to put up with these so called fans on a daily basis.
Yeah, no offense to R* but they're fanbase is also the Call Of Duty fanbase. R* games are fun but GTA and COD's fanbase are interchangeable.
Angry, impatient fans are better than no fans at all... But yes, Rockstar does seem to have an over-bearing and extremely pushy group of people within their fan base who really go too far. GTA games take a while, not just in the development phase, but the establishing phase. There is a reason why we've only seen what we have seen so far...They aren't ready to show anything else yet.
Whoever disagreed with you must be one of the people who can't understand it. I also am pretty amazed by how little patience people have. But who knows, The News wire at R*.com might be a bunch of little kids. I have been waiting since t finished GTA IV but I understand things happen that delay these things. They have been working on it for so long i'm sure they want it to look as good as it could.
This is a AAA title with a big fan base...they want to hit all of the angles just right, so the longer the delay, the better the game. The marketing for any GTA game is usually a big deal as well, hence why we haven't seen a 2nd trailer yet. It's coming...but once they show something, they are committed. They aren't the type to go back and change things. Take your time I say. We already know it has a release date of early next year sometime, that is better than nothing. The internet is full of fools like those people. Just log on to YouTube and look at how many people are fighting in the comment section about absolutely nothing relating to the video.
Preach brotha amen
You missed the question mark on the title. Also, that's ridiculous, anything that has a large fanbase, will have the odd douchebag.
No, CoD fans are. Wait they're pretty much the same fanbase.
I know I will get bashed and disagreed a whole lot for this but fans of all games are the same. They all are offensive and demanding. I see it all the time on N4G and you cant post anything on here without getting at least one disagree no matter what you say.
Think it more a worrying sign of the culture in general. The self-centered selfish unawareness of the world that's come over people. Thank you Ayn Rand I suppose.
Please don't single this out to be a R* or GTA fan thing, because while those reactions were nothing short of depressing, it's nothing new. This is for some reason the worst generation of gamers I've ever seen, and I've been gaming since Intellivision. The amount of adjectives you could use to describe the general attitude of this generation could fill a 500 word essay, but respectful would not be in there.
But it needs to be said that by and large the mess over ME3's ending wasn't about gamer entitlement - the ending and many other element about the game were just damn lazy. This is the second worst generation in gaming, with the worst the later years of the Atari 2600.
Tell me one developer(excluding rockstar) who release trailer and then no news about the game for WHOLE YEAR??? i mean wtf rockstar,so stupid
Have you ever heard of Polyphony Digital?
Video Game Fans: The Worst Fans to Have (except Nintendo fans)
It's kind of funny because one minute the fans would have a murderous hate for R* because of the lack of information, then when Rockstar release any kind of media from GTA V the all go like "Oh my god Rockstar I love you!"
