Why I hate the Steam community. (Rant)
Most people who come across this, will most likely disagree. I mean Steam has great holiday sales, cool free games, and memorable games from earlier gens. Ya, I love all of those things about Steam. But the thing I hate is the people. Steam mostly consists of three types of people, Bronies, "Offensive" people, and "pro gamers." I will be talking about all three in this blog.
First there are the Bronies, I don't want to hate on anyone. However I see no logical explanation to why anyone besides children and babies would enjoy My Little Pony. My guess is people just become Bronies to be "funny", "unique", or "weird. If that's true, it just proves that some people are really trying to hard for attention."
Then there's "offensive" people, the reason I put quotations around offensive is because these people aren't really offensive, they just try to be. They set their username to some racial slur, or joke regarding religion, death, or politics. Although, they're really just trying to be funny and get attention, they don't really hate whatever they're making fun of. I mean hey I like a couple racist jokes as much as the next guy. But these people, just try to hard to be funny and shove all of it down your throat like they're trying to accomplish something.
All of the Steam community gets on my nerves, but the people who piss me off the most are the "pro" gamers. They annoy more than the MLG Call Of Duty kids, even more then any kind of fanboy. These are the people that take games, way to serious. I don't mind actual pro gaming, yea it's a cool concept in all. However when someone joins a public game, and starts complaining and throwing a fit over how I suck, it pisses me off. I play games, purely for fun, yes I get a little competitive at times but it's only for games that I should. In my opinion video games should be for just pleasure, if you're not competing for money you should take it easy and love the game, not get frustrated at it. On the other hand steam gamers have a completley different opinion. Just today I was playing on Left 4 Dead 2 versus, I was playing as an infected and all of a sudden a new player joins my team. A couple moments later I screw up my attack, I acknowledged and said sorry. Although, instead of forgiving me this new player starts trash talking me and trying to kick me because of the situation.
Left 4 dead doesn't have any XP or unlock system for versus. Therefore there is actually no point of winning, rather for the thrill and fun of it. So basically this guy was screaming at me over nothing, here's what I think. Players shouldn't join a game and expect every other team member to be as good as them, if they want go join a league or something. People just make a big deal over something that should be purely for enjoyment. What I'm trying to say is, IF YOU ARE NOT PRO DON'T TAKE THE GAME SERIOUSLY!
That's why I personally like the Playstation community better, yeah there are some nasty people on PSN also. However a big majority of people on PSN are friendly, and don't care if you're a beginner or you're just having a bad match. That's just my thoughts on the subject.
