in games its part of the fun

are we expected to play all business like?

that's bigotry and its a different thing and totally wrong

or pushing a sniper off a building (MAV again)
or playing hit and run with the week punch till time runs out in SF4

No, but you are supposed to play with a certain level of consideration for other players, having fun at the expense of others doesn't strike me as an integral part of gaming.

Harmless trolling is fine, but insulting other peoples race, gender or sexual orientation is just plain juvenile.


Well people actually do these things to troll other players too, but yeah you made your point.

Almost Two-Thirds Of Gamers Admit 'Trolling' Online

And that's only the people admitting to it...

Exactly! We've all done it, it's just part of the fun. It's the people that are mean about it that it begins to annoy me.

I used to troll back in the day, then I hit puberty...

So did I, but it was an arrow to the knee that did it in for me.

Everyone does it, don't they? Even if you play nice 99% of the time, there's always that one time you mess with someone just because a 'hilarious' (read: not really that hilarious) opportunity presents itself to be a massive dickweed.

Get rid of handles, make everyone use their real names and would someone please enforce age ratings on games already. If you're 12 stop playing CoD!

The PS4 will be locking in on your identity so we will see if it stops people trolling and more importantly stop kids playing 18 rated games.
Trolling can be funny though, even if you get caught out on the receiving end you can just laugh about it.
Depends what the trolling is.

Nothing is going to stop kids from playing 18rated games
