Yes it has. People can be really really stupid, and mean. Some coward 'gamers' feel safe behind their computer screens and cannot contain their frustration, so they do crazy dumb stuff.

You can blame a dev for not making the game you've been waiting for, but there are limits. We are civilized people, damn. That's just pathetic. Most of the time, the targets are devs who're just following orders from their hierarchy. And even if some do screw up their games, that's not a reason to threat them or their family. Those people are really hurting the image of the gaming community.

Totally agree with you. This is such a bad reflection on the community

It's so sad. Gamers should support developers because they're the people who make the games. :(
