Gaming Console Network's Aaron Espinoza talks about the growing problems of new and annoying gamers playing online on Xbox Live and the Playstation Network.
Though most of you disagree, I think that you should have to put in a Drivers License number to verify your age so that young kids can't play M games (at least on XBL). This would take care of a huge majority of idiots on XBL.
Like that would do anything. I know forty year olds who act younger than I am (23). This is especially true when they play games because they know that no one will do anything about it when they are called on it except to leave the game.
I dont know about that. The vast majority of the idiots I've encountered online on both live and psn were obviously underage based on their voices and language. It wouldn't get rid of all of them, but I'd say about 80% of the problem with respect to morons acting up online is the fact that they're just dumb immature kids. pc gaming isn't like this, and I think thats because online pc gamers tend to be older.
maybe those underaged freaks are the real 1337 of the gaming world and all the 20+ years old have become the n00bs... They probably spend more time refining their trash talking skills online because most of us have to work and stuffs.
What's going to stop from parents putting in their license numbers for their kids, just like they do now with credit cards?
Hay, I'm 31 and not a noob....and I don't have a drivers licence....not for the UK anyway.
No point in having a car when you live in the middle of London.
ur a n00b, noob man
The only way to get rid of NOOBs would be to force people to play the offline game and beat it first. That way you would have some experiance at playing and would take it more seriously while playing it.
So where does that logic fit in with online only games?
there are exceptions to every rule...thats all I can think of
good come back. although there will be a lot of exceptions to your rule.
Whenever you start playing a new level in COD4, there is a bit of a learning curve.
I remember when i first played hardcore there was a number of times I ran round a corner and shoot one of my own guys by mistake.
Takes a little time to check your target when your used to the other levels when you used to not killing your team when you shoot them.
Your the exact person this article is talking about.
Thats why he is offended by the article. It is about him.
Thanks buddy, now if I see you I can annoy the sh*t outta you.
Well I'm not sure you'd actually be an annoyance, because you can answer a few of his questions. Like, why would you kill someone only to wait longer and longer each time. Or why do you whistle in your mic.
New patch for COD4 coming out.. Where you can mute any person you want.. Problem solved
Mute them, kick them, pwn them. Not in that particular order of course.
meh thats the problem with popular games that are easy to pick up and play like cod4....you get the infestation of retards
i like noobs there funny to me and there hella easy to kill
Pwnage: The universal n00b gag. Nothing shuts them up faster.
This article is fundamentally flawed...
there are annoying people online...but that doesn't mean they are noobs...and there are new guys that are not annoying, yet still suck because they just started playing that particular game...
this guy is annoyed by annoying people...apparently he is under the impression that all annoying people just started playing that game (CoD 4 in this example)...yet the worst is getting your ass kicked by a shat talker...and it happens more times than anyone would want to admit...
I am not annoyed by the shat talking that is going on, that is sometimes fun to hear and it adds to the ambience of the game. What I hate is people making unnatural noises (ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!) for what seems like unnatural periods of time while in the lobby.
Its a word in the dictionary somewhere. Have we heard ourselves speak recently? Its a two way effort.
I find "n00bs" more enjoyable than "gamers." Hardly anyone ever talks on x-box live. I like to be in social games where people are laughing and joking. I hate it when some guy will come into a game and be like "hay guys whats goin on" and everyone else will be like "zomg stfu and play the game." I really hate the negative energy a lot of "gamers" give out. I mean, what is the point of using a headset if you're not going to talk to anyone.
that online games had ranking systems where the more experienced players will get to play against each other and leaving the less experiences players in those servers which are built for them so they could refine their skill. I know people say why don't they play the single player offline story first to get better, but honestly it can go only so far and online battles are a lot more different than those offline. So just give those n00bs time and they will learn the ways of etiquette of online play and they will also become more experienced and will annoy you less. Patience is the word that should be imbraced by everyone from the n00bs to the most experienced players.
but all that is IMO of course, feel free to give me any feedback good or bad, because i am interested in seeing everyone response to my points.
Campers,anyone? *shudders with rage*
I especially hate the NOOB campers who are told to go somewhere by there more experienced friends. They just sit there no matter how many times I kill them they keep going back there because they were told that it is a good place to get kills.
I whistle, sing, rap and sh*t talk on PSN at the same time as I am getting 32 kills and 4 deaths on COD4. I wouldn't consider myself a noob.
The people you kill might do though.
If you call using "sticky aim" truskill matchmaking and other retarded console-only crap like that "pro", then you need to rethink what you're saying.
sticky aim, ok you might have something there, but the truskill system was implemented so that those people who are very good at the game play with others who are really good at the game. Being good and complaining about truskill is like being a high school student who complains because people don't want you to beat the crap out of kindergarten students. You don't see NHL players complaining that they can't compete against peewee teams.
Man I've come across some of the funniest mofo's trashtalking on PSN. There were a few Tekken matches I kept losing from laughing so hard because of the crazy stuff that the dude would say after all of his moves.
thing is everyone starts out as a noob especially your 1st online game then a couple of months l8r and u know what ur doin (although the stupin noises dont stop) although theres nothin worse than hearin a stupid kid making stuped noises lol
I hate it when people burp over the mic.
This guys an idiot. Does he know what n00b means? Hes greatly generalised the term.
