Why Spoil Games for People?

People play games and take in their information at their own pace, yet a misplaced spoiler can ruin that experience and the game's story. Spoilers typically suck for people, so why are there some that actively look for them, and then decide to share?

I look for spoilers for games I have no intention of playing, but I should have to look HARD to find them. Stumbling upon spoilers is unacceptable, even after a game's release.

The simple fact is that people like to be douches over the internet. It's anonymity at its finest, sometimes people aren't happy unless they are causing trouble and misery for others.

I still remember I'd get messages from random people here on N4G trying to spoil Halo 4's story and ending for me, thankfully I was doing an internet blackout to avoid such issues.

People seriously sent you messages?

Good Lord.

You have to feel sorry for people who are that miserable, truly.

I had 3 messages from people spoiling the ending, but I didn't check until after I beat the game thankfully.

I must be the only person who has never seen a spoiler for any game I intended on playing in over 25 years of playing games.

The solution is simple, don't wander into articles, especially forum posts discussing a game as you are more than likely to find people who have already played it discussing certain aspects.

It's like going to IMDB and looking up a film you intend on watching then going into the forum for that film...

True, you shouldn't wander into articles about a game that you hope to play yourself (for caution of spoilers), but sometimes it's unavoidable.

Take Tumblr. You have no idea when you'll see an animated GIF of the end of The Walking Dead randomly posted on someone's page.

Some people will spoil a game regardless of a page or forum's context. If everyone on the internet kept on topic in their respective outlets, then yeah, your idea would work, but sadly, we don't live in a perfect world.

Ive been spoiled by all the manga readers of naruto to the point of about to give up on the anime since thats where I chose to get the story from.
