I’m a gamer, I love gaming. For most of my gaming years I stuck to my good old Playstation 2 and 3, (Xbox 360 briefly)I then bought a High-End (2011) gaming PC and joined Steam. I always used to check Metacritic, IGN and Gamespot for reviews and impressions of games, I lurked NeoGAF (just for the GIFS) threads every now and again but for the most part I played games. I then joined NeoGAF and subsequently came across this place.....N4G.
Oh God......what a mistake. This place is worse then a mental institution. People fight over the same thing again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again, round and round, all day all night, every day of every week of every year. I have waisted at least 20 full-days of my life over the last year on this site over the last year. My God, what a waste. What saddens me even more are their are clearly intelligent people on this site but not intelligent enough to realize the following thing.
-On the internet everyone has their own closed minded opinions. You are always right to yourself and always wrong to those to oppose you. No amount of disagrees, replies or PM’s are going to change this. So stop trying to argue with people. Their is NO POINT. If you have an opinion on something, keep it to yourself......their is no point on going on a crusade, its a waste of your life. You could be adding to meaningful discussion, helping the elderly or animals instead of lining the pockets of the people who feed off the massive maelstrom of sh*t throwing that goes on here.
Also for &*(# sake.......the graphics whoring that goes on here is DISGUSTING. There are something like 320 comments on N4G, 3 000 on IGN and a 32 page thread on NeoGAF about how Battlefield 4 is running at 720p on Xbox One. You know what? I wish I was a casual I couldn’t notice a difference between 1080i, 1080P, 720P, 900P, 30 fps, 45fps, 60fps, 60hz. It sickens me, how people fight over this sort of thing. I play games, to have fun....yes if the game is running at 19fps it will effect my enjoyment but seriously comments like,
“ Oh my word....what is this Guerilla Games, Killzone: Shadowfall only running at 60 fps some of the time, their is nothing worse than a frame-rate drop, it will look awful on my 60hz TV....thanks for saving me $60.”
I mean really, some of you act like frame-rate drops and 900P are going to give you brain cancer.
Im not even going to touch on the lack of logic here and on other gaming sites.
Gone are the days were I give a flying sh*t that Polygon gave The Last of Us 7.0 out of 10 because that is not going to affect MY own personal enjoyment of the game.
Gone are the days I care whether Killzone runs at 60 FPS “most of the time.”
Gone are the days were I try argue with incredible amount of lack of logic here.
Instead Im going to be playing games instead of arguing about them, I’m going to spend more time with my family, with my pets and doing the things I love instead of cr*p slinging. I don’t care any more and I wish I never had.
PS. Once this is approved don’t bother PM’ing me because I’m never coming back. I wrote this blog to try help you guys to stop wasting your life in the comments sections and threads.
