Charlie of Xboxer360 writes, "The internet is a mysterious and yet an oh so volatile place; it’s mercurial and the destined home of the wrathful masses. That is to say, the internet is aloof with loud and rude people; it’s a given as people have a voice that extends across the world and a veil of anonymity to protect them. Unfortunately for the unsuspecting, sometimes people turn their hate on them, and given such an amassment of tools to voice that hate, it can hit them from afar.
If you’ve ever dared stray into the online gaming community, you’ll have undoubtedly noticed by now there are a hostile few that spew toxic spit as they hiss and screech profanities. It’s laughable to suggest this kind of behaviour is unique to any one game or genre, but two infamous examples are Call of Duty and League of Legends. Perhaps they’re the games that draw attention because their genres are largely dependent on online multiplayer to function and remain competitive."
