When Did We Lose Our Gaming Way?

Gamertag Radio writes: "When a person enters the world of online gaming today they expect bigotry, cursing, cheating, and generally poor sportsmanship.

Game since the atari days and it use to be so simple. You either love a game or not. When you buy a game you get a full game.

It was all about fun. Nowdays i am not sure.

It's all fun and games until you come across someone that's Android 17 arrogant, salty losers, people that act like they NEVER had a bad game, hosts that kick you out for winning, or as soon as you join the lobby, and the list goes on.

Many lost their way when they started using tech jargon when in reality they have no idea what it actually means or how its applied to gaming.
