Where has the “gaming entitlement” attitude come from?

Codec Moments have been mulling over gamer entitlement for a number of months, originally prompted by some hideous comments in a forum by some trolling poster who was trying to pick a fight. It got them thinking why is there an attitude out there from some individuals that causes them to berate and ridicule the hard work of developers and publishers, and is this limited to just the gaming community?

How dare people expect a part of their game that they paid for to actually work, the nerve of them.

I know

I think people (older gamers) are just noticing things being lackluster compared to last gen or the gen before that or even them feeling short changed compared to then and they are simply speaking out when something dosen't feel right. The ones who call them entitled are usualy the white knights of that franchise in question or people new to this gen/gaming who don't understand what where comparing things to.

That's exactly the problem with things. New age gamers, and other ''White Knights'' just wants to have fun. We also want to have fun, but damn, we'll speak up if something isn't right about the game.

This is apparently called entitlement, which the ''Journalists'' ; adopted. You have to remember though, they're protecting their goodies from publishers as well.

If sites started to speak up more about games, then you can be sure to see a lot of them shut down.

No, it's not just part of gaming, but gamers seem to be the worst for it. Next come Anime/manga fans. Can be absolutely retarded, again almost as bad as gamers

It's just "teh internetz"

People find it easy to be nasty when there not actually in front of the person.

yeah this guy/girl gets it! and also some games get hyped up way too much causing people to be disappointed when they play it, like ff13 or too human for instance, i can see where the frustration comes from sometimes, sometimes its just not necessary. But if we dont tell the devs what we like and dont like about their games then how will they know how its been received?

Its the younger generation, they have everything handed to them on a plate, and complain that the plate's the wrong colour. Its pathetic really, just a sign of whats happening with society at the moment. This is what happens when spoiled, over-protected mummies boys grow up.

Thats a very narrow minded generalisation of the "younger generation"

Coming from the "younger generation" (22) . . . save it. I've worked for absolutely everything I have and went through many hurdles along the way.

vallencer1508d ago

Pretty sure by younger generation he means people under 17. I'm only two years older than you and have also worked for everything. But like I said I don't think he means us. I've seen the people he means walk into the store I work at and they're all teenagers pretty much.

I have encountered many individuals in this younger generation that are more mature than myself or any of my friends, and I am 44 years old.

It goes both ways. Some people feel they should get the world with their games but a lot of the time developers are doing things that are anti-consumerist. Things that are ripped out of a game and sold as DLC is a trend and it is annoying. DLC used to be something extra (I.e and expansion pack). In the GTA example that is just poor development. The core game had very little glitches (which I commend them for as not many do which is also a worrying trend) but the online felt like a beta for a game you paid for. Some had no problems (good for them) but too many people had problems
