Addict of Fiction take a look if gamers are fussy or if they actually take a lot of *Ahem* battering from companies.
Seeing post on N4G and other videogames sites he kinda has a point. I have to agree with Phil Fish. 90% of gamers are the worst kind of people the other 10% are normal
''Seeing post on N4G and other videogames sites he kinda has a point. 90% of gamers are the worst'' Those are Fanboys and Trolls. Gamers are Gamers or Fans which is different to Fanboy.
At least gamers are honest and no-bulls*** about their opinions. I shiver to think what the world would be like if it were comprised entirely of holier-than-thou, politically-correct language police, such as special interest groups complaining about porn, racism... or even Rush Limbaugh.
Yeah, sure, they're honest but there's so much information coming out - some of it true, some of it completely false - that it's impossible for them to keep up with it. They take the headline at face value, especially at N4G, and that means that they have great opinions but, nine times out of ten, those opinions are knee-jerk reactions to unsubstantiated nonsense. And they don't remember that when they get angry, so you end up with nonsense like "The From Ashes DLC is on the disk," which Bioware will never live down and is, in actuality, complete and utter bull. But it'll keep being repeated as long as Mass Effect 3 is being knocked.
What makes you think gamers are any more honest than anyone else? Remember that the gaming "media" is comprised of gamers. Remember that the same honest gamers are the people on this forum hating BluRay, Halo, Wii, and anything else that doesn't fit on their preferred console. The world needs politically-correct language police. Attacking a person because they disagree with you is unacceptable. Remove the stigma from being an ass and you'll find more people killed for their words. People that can't temper their hate need to be protected from themselves.
NO. The world doesn't need politcally-correct language police. There's something called FREE SPEECH. One of the amendments of the constituton. I think you may have heard of it? Or maybe you haven't, considering what you're seemingly espousing by saying "the world needs language police" is a complete demolishing of the First Amendment and the constitution. You know what country has plenty of "language police?" Communist China. Freedom of speech and censorship in America is already in a sad and pathetic state as it is; we don't need even MORE policing of words in this country. I'm slightly left-leaning and liberal in my political views, and I think Rush Limbaugh is a complete asshole. However, as the old saying goes, "I may not agree with him, but I'll defend his right to say it." Just because he (jokingly) said someone MIGHT be a slut/prostitute, people are trying to CENSOR him by petitioning to lose his job. If that's not an encroachment on Free Speech, then I don't know what is. Open debate--or simply calling Rush Limbaugh an idiot in response to his "hateful speech"--is one thing. Trying to shut someone up by destroying his livelihood is completely something else. You, along with many other overly sensitive, politically-correct people in this country, have completely lost sight of what values this country was founded on, and I find that completely sad and pathetic. To relate this in N4G terms, you're the type of person who would rather bubble-down someone who says something you disagree with, rather than try to formulate an intelligent retort, even if he said it in an intelligent or non-fanboyish way. If someone says something truly offensive/hurtful/disagreeable , then the response should be public humiliation or backlash. The response SHOULDN'T be censorship or losing his job/livelihood. If Rush Limbaugh says something truly stupid or inane, the response should be you turning off your radio dial so that you make him lose ratings by not having you listening. EDIT: When I say gamers are honest, it's because their constant whining and complaining to the developers keep them honest to a certain extent. If gamers didn't call each other out or developers out on their bull***, then we'd be seeing these greedy companies put out $50+ of on-disc DLC in every single game. Yes, gamers are overly whiny and entitled, but I'd rather have whiny and entitled gamers than passive and complacent gamers.
These game developers need to stop thinking they are celebrities and "get with the program" if you can excuse the pun. After all the negativity from the stunts pulled, they expect gamers to be happy regardless. I have to admit they are people who do become anal for minute details, they are in every community but you are a professional. There are customers who agitate me as well in my job of customer service but I am paid to do a job so if anyone gets too ornery, I usually apologize and take the high road by kindly dismissing the person or transferring the person to someone else. It comes with the territory pal.....
What I found bizarre about his claim was he didn't specify any evidence for his claim at all. So I mean of course he's going to get backlash from the community. I mean whenever I hate something I always list out the points I didn't like to prove my argument. This usually leads to majority of people seeing my point because I laid everything out in a logical manner versus going entirely on emotion. You yourself have provided a very well thought out and real world example and description, Bubbles+
I dont just think its just gamers. Its people on the internet in general. Most use the anonymity to act like jerks. Theyre like little dogs, yapping behind a tall fence. Open the gate, and watch them STFU. I mean, look at all the arguing that goes on in here. Yet if we all were to meet at a LAN party or something, we would probably all get along really well since we all have common interests. I've never seen a fight at a LAN.
IDK about N4G getting along at a LAN party. Some people here are just complete trolls.
Yeah, but like I said, open the gate and watch them STFU.
I agree to some extent about the Japanese games.But it was his attitude that annoyed me. I am not sure why people are going around trying to defend what he said or pretend that he just said it nicely and everyone is over reacting.He obviously has issues because now he is jumping around trying to blame everyone for himself putting his foot in his mouth. He represents exactly what is wrong with people these days. You just blurt out whatever you want and then later try to explain, make excuses and back pedal when it blows up in your face and people get angry about your attitude.I am not sure why people are defending him when he did exactly what people on forums and games sites do all the time. Talk first, think later.
I think I would change the word gamers to fanboys. The title would make more sense.
its mainly just the vocal gamer internet users. Look at youtube comments on ANY TYPE OF video and people are asses. Gamers on the internet are no different.
Nintendo is Japanese and they make the most popular game software in the world. That guy who insulted Japanese developers is just an arrogant asshole, I bet his game will be a lot worse than thatgamecompany and many other japanese devs. When Japanese devs were on top last-gen were they saying, "western devs suck", nope! Know why? Because only an immature asshole would say stuff like that about his peers. He needs to grow up and be a professional. He's such a douchbag, and he looks like one too.
Best game this generation comes from Japan. VANQUISH dont even argue about that! :)
I'll just say if your going to go to GDC get up on a symposium and just blatantly say and quote, "Japanese games suck." Then you need to have constructive criticism to back up your claims otherwise your going to get a lot of hatred from people because you can't explain why you have come to this conclusion. I could have sworn this is a PR 101 tactic here. Not to mention not all of Japanese games have been terrible this generation so his main point is clearly false.
