No One Deserves Violent Threats - Not Even Call of Duty Developers

People who tell developers they should die in a fire, for example, are the lowest scum. People who suggest that Call of Duty developers deserved these threats are not far behind, though. Some people might have a problem with me saying that. Here’s a message to such people: grow a pair of moral balls.

- Jed Pressgrove, Fate of the Game (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Culture, Industry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

This is not justifiable, but come on they could do some things to please their fans more.

There's an irony in a "fan" of a game disliking the game so much that he threatens the dev.

A more effective way to communicate his disapproval would be to stop playing the game and purchasing the series or games from the dev/publisher.

I loved Crysis 2 but they never fixed the grain glitch. Know what I did? Sold it and refused to buy any further Crytek games.

Tip for half of COD players, just because your friends bought it doesn't mean you have to. Try something different, you may be surprised.

I think people are too sensitive alot of the time but it is true no one deserves threats like that unless they are trash talking people which they arent

If you are unhappy with a product, DON'T SPEND YOUR MONEY ON IT!!
Death threats are ridiculously immature... Talking, arguing, discussing what you like dislike on games and consoles is fun, but this takes it to far, and like @mikelL posted say the wrong thing and you may just find yourself in real trouble.
Remember now a days there are some real lunatics out there and believe it or not someone might see these threats, and think I'm going to kill this guy and be everyone's hero... Don't feed the madness, just stop spending YOUR money on it

I agree that no one deserves threats of violence. This is the community Activision fostered though. It's the idiots that are willing to pay $60 every year for the same outdated engine with different killstreaks and maps, and overpriced DLC. They don't get dedicated servers, just a horrible matchmaking service that's full of lag and disconnects.

These are the types of people willing to buy into this crap consistently every year, the type that will attack you immaturely in such a way. Create a better environment with your games that shows you actually care and aren't in it just to eat holes in people's pockets, and you'll get better gamers around you.

with all due respect your reasoning here is retarded

uttering death threats over a video game is stupid in of itself, but uttering those threats over mere tenths of a second? that's just plain ridiculous.
