Gamers are no saints and are guilty of lying as much as any other community.
Yeah but....I CAN beat anyone...and if I did put in the time and effort I would dominate FPS, fighting and racing games on MLG and ESL...
Shouldn't the title be "Some Gamers" and not all ?
"I hit the button and nothing happened. This is bullsh*t" (referencing DS PVP).
Good list!! And very true.
Most people blame the controller.
But, but, but it was lag from the connection :(
That actually happens quite a bit in RL when playing with someone with a crappy ping. Sometimes it looks like they hit the ball, it twitches, then continues regular course as if they didn't even come near it. Frustrating when you are timing your hits and stuff on defense or offense. Other than that game, I generally don't blame anything but my own skill. :(
“I Can Beat Anyone”
A friend suggested this one and it was true. Go on a video game forum's page and ask for a list of easy platinums and someone will without fail say dark souls.
My 13 year old son says things like that all the time, especially about beating games. When you go into his account, he hasn't beaten s**t.
Try going in US/EU/JP rooms when you live around the other side of the global there is lag. I can also admit when I am not good at something it isn't a lie it just means I need to improve.
I agree with pretty much everything. Though, 80% of the time the lag thing is true. Connections are very rarely perfect and crazy shit happens. But oh man those fucking people "this is too easy" "oh that part is easy" "oh I can play Dark Souls with my eyes closed while hopping on one leg" gets so annoying. Especially after they claim it's so easy, and then you watch them stream it and they die more than you do.
