Videogame Fans Suck: The decline of the videogame community

There is no fan-base so temperamental, fervorous and so quick to vilify than the videogame community. The abject dispassion caused by the slightest change can create a tumbling snowball of abuse and hatred into the path of the most common bystander. Verbal wars are fought on any public battlefield when given the opportunity of anonymity, over topics ranging from console preference to videogame comparison. Somewhere down the line, the community fell into divide; the once-common goal towards technological advancement fell apart due to petty squabbling and meaningless debates. Try as we might, there isn’t a bucket big enough to haul the water from this sinking ship. (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Culture, David Vonderhaar, Industry, Treyarch)
