This week on Good Game, Goose talks about entitlement, specifically the general attitude of angry entitled gamers that the gaming community is seeing more and more of.
Yes I agree
Yes. most definitely.
Groose has no idea what he's talking about.
I bet this guy cant even change a tire, let alone cut down a tree.
No. Too bad this article won't fix the reviews for No Man's Sky. It sucks so stop the damage control.
Nobodies doing damage control the game is great for what it is. It's just not a game for everyone. Sean Murray explained this game perfectly a thousand times, and for the most part it is what he said it would be. Plus they are adding things to the game for free, my guess on a regular basis. There are more good reviews than bad, don't the good reviews count, user and journalist. Another thing entitle people do is think their opinion is fact and everyone should have the same one. OK you have your opinion and you've expressed it but you continually push your opinion on others because everyone has to agree with you but they don't always agree, so then you think that people that don't have the same opinion are idiots. Does that explain you? Are you jumping on a the band wagon because it's cool to be as negative as you possibly can be? Like the article said gamers weren't like this before, and because of the way it is now, I enjoy gaming less. I respect that you don't like the game, but that doesn't make it a bad game.
The game sucks
The game is great.
I have heard the myth down the road millions and millions of times even before this generation of gaming began! :/
It's an easy way to dispel criticism sure, what's easier than saying the consumer is the one in the wrong especially when you have media outlets pushing that narrative constantly also. I would disagree though, I work hard for my money and I'm not going to spend it on something when there is a better alternative. Am I entitled to my right to spend my money on good products? You bet, I'm also entitled to complain about a product that is substandard. 'Entitled' isn't a bad word so stop trying to make into one. Also for the people screaming 'millenials' in the comments, unless you're older than 35 years old, you're a millennial too, get over yourself.
I'm over 35 and I agree somewhat with what you are saying. You should get the right to complain about substandard products. That's for sure. You have the right to spend your money on the "best" there is. Entitled can be a good thing in those instances. That being said, there are some entitled gamers...just as there are some entitled people. I don't do generalizations. So, I wouldn't label ALL gamers anything more than gamers. I would just say that some people need to do themselves a favor and realize a couple of things. Companies only care for you to the extent that you spend money on their product. While your voice might have some influence, it's your money that has the real power. Media is as media does...and it's getting worse as the years go. It feeds off of hype and controversy because straight news is boring to a generation that has access to that everywhere they turn. Finally, remember that you can't always get what you want. Then, decided whether what is provided is good enough for your sensibilities.
I don't think "journalists" will ever learn. Let's take a look at this shall we? I'm a gamer. Those that bother to read gaming news? Gamers. By saying "are gamers too entitled" is literally asking "are you too entitled"? Are there some that are? Unquestionably and undeniably so. But when you ask it like that it just makes your entire readership feel like you are giving them shit and it's you versus them. Would be wise to rephrase questions like that if you want reasoned responses, or people to even bother reading/watching what you've produced. I'm certainly not inclined to. Wonder if he'd like it if I asked: "Are game "journalists" tone deaf tools?" See how that works?
Are gamers too entitled? Short answer, yes. Long answer, f*** yes.
When it comes to feeling you have the right to send death threats because of a games delay ect well yes, that is just pathetic but in the case of say no mans sky, well, no, we are rightly pissed at peter molyn....ahem, sean murray for being intentionally misleading and reaping the rewards while we get half the game we were told we would get, and that is also pathetic. hello games?....more like goodbye games.
Consumers in general are entitled. Gamers are no different in that regard. But, there are 2 important things to note. Firstly, gaming is young comparatively, and mainstream gaming is even younger. Secondly, gaming as an industry suffers from multiple interests attempting to stoke the fires of fanboyism and entitlement moreso than any other industry. Partially due to the industry's youth, and partially due to the rapid growth and wide demographics of gaming.
'Are gamers who paid their hard earned cash entitled because marketing (and media) for no man sky lied to them and they got a far inferior product than what was promised?' I guess you can called that entitled...but I would have to call you an idiot. Glad I didn't bother with a game. Everyone should have known immediately that the game was a lie when Sean mentioned exploring the 'universe'.
