A writer at Myarcadeplanet.com takes a look at the hideous yet hilarious beast known as trash talking.
That's why there should be an automatic decapitator in the 360 for people when they talk too much sh!t to people
And they say that X Box Live is user friendly? User friendly my a$$!
I often get told iv'e been raped by some american (Only ever an American) and how i'm gay.Got me thinking about how awful it must be for some of the female Halo players out there that get this as well - and males for that matter.Does rape mean something different in America or is it that Americans really are this insensitive?.Occasionally i get to play some genuinely decent games with cool Americans but it sure isn't very often.I'm off now for a cup of tea chaps.
Rape means the same thing were you live as it does here in America. Problem is there are immature people everywhere. [My personal favorite is the 9 year old boy who swears like a sailor]
Adropacrich2 every country has its share of idiots. Statements that make it out to be an "american" problem make you look like one of these childish people who make statements with out thinking first.
in my own experience it's the American redneck who does the trashtalking 9 out of 10 times. No offense to normal Americans.
That you're happy!!! Take it as a compliment. :)
Well that's good to hear then.There are some equally stupid british of course, but it's just so different when it comes to Halo3 games playing against them and not Americans.
I will concede, that your stereotypical american halo 2 player is less mannered than your stereotypical british player. But thats just stereotypes, they aren't always true.
willi b pimpin <---add me bro, I'll show you what it's like to play with a cool american.
Cain141 If you want another american who won't drive you crazy.
M-17 for online. I know it would be a heads up for most parents when buying the game.
Thats the reason for the game experience may change online warning.
For the most part, it's just some harmless "I beat you I'm better than you" talk. But in many cases, especially in Halo multiplayer, it seems almost mandatory to talk as much sh1t as possible before during and especially after a game. It's the same regurgitated sh1t, "I raped you. How does my sh1t taste? I'm going to skullfcuk you! I took a dump on your whole squad!" It's pretty ridiculous, and almost all of it spews from retarded adolescents who only say those things because XBL is completely anonymous. If you take it personally you really need to step back, calm down, and recognize how stupid the people TRYING to insult you really are.
Its not because you lost that you were called but simply because you played it. I'd expect the same for those playing Barney the Purple T-Rex.
I remember in grade school when "gay" was the insult of choice. It applied everywhere. "Your gay" ranged from missing a shot at basketball to giving a bad answer in class. Classic! Oddly enough, now that we're all grown up, the people who used "gay" the most actually turned out gay. Now thats mad awkward turtle!
Its competition man what do you expect..Football,Basketball,Ba seball any sport has trash talking
The author of the article was absolutely right. Trash talking is fine and dandy until it gets so obscene that it makes people sound stupid.
I just use the feed back buttons, complaint services through XBL, avoid players, etc... 95% of the time it's all fine, trash talking during the game is great fun, as long as it's done when the match is over, and there is nothing racial or homophobic about it. cheers!
Trash talking in real sports is used to distract the opponent from what they SHOULD be thinking about. In online games that don't have any consequence on who the winner and loser is, aka pub matches, it's pointless and classless. If you are talking junk when nothing is on the line then you are jerk. AKA, like me :).
my 360, no need to pay $50 a year to hear idiots talk sh%t to you when I can actually play with mature people for FREE on PSN. what is it about xbox that attracts all the idiots and retards??
Comments like that will lose you bubbles good sir.
yep,you are! ;)
Of playing other people on XBOX LIVE. MAJOR DOWN SIDE.
its the same regardless if its xbox live or psn retards. Your actually gona sit there and say the psn is free of trash talking? Grow the f*ck up. As for trash talking itself, MUTE THEM if you don't like what someones saying. PROBLEM SOLVED. Im tired of all the self-righteous assholes like the author thinking hes somehow superior because he doesn't trash talk. Newsflash douche, your not. Trash talk is fun to say, fun to hear. Like I said, mute em if you don't wanna hear em. Don't cry about it.
Effects of too much game addiction.
only retards who think it does...
