Gamers have a nasty habit of biting the hands that feed them. Don't believe It? Ponder these colossally boneheaded gamer behaviors, ripped right from the pages of history.
This is old read it a few weeks ago.
I gotta say I love your avtars, but i hope is because u love girls so much and you get to have some at least once in a while and not you're not just a horny teenager
Dude i've had a gf for 3 years i don't think that makes me a horny teenager and i'm 21 by the way.
most of the 'dicks' are PC gamers....just an observation
Pull back, broaden your view and you will realize a**holes are abundant, not only in gaming but... around the world actually. How we treat animals, gamers online, earth and even other humans.
Most snobby, snide, delusional comments are made by PS3 gamers. Just an observation.
That was quite a well-written article. Haven't had a good read like that in a while. Cheers. =)
I agree, its actually quite refreshing on here :D. But the point that really got me on how self-centered gamers can be was the humble indie bundle, i mean 25% of all the downloads were illegal, for a game that cost a PENNY. Says it all really
they were not illegal just never bought a key I doubt they all downloaded a keygen to play the game those that did use a keygen are dicks though.
TLDR: Pirates are bad. Anti-piracy article disguised as a gaming piece.
TLDR: "I fit into nearly every category of dick in this article"
I would never ever even consider downloading a game that costs only a penny or 1 dollar or 1 euro. People who do that are a plague in the industry. I recently bought a ps3 and there is no way I am ever going to try to pirate games. I want quality with free updates and enhancements. What I don't like is the price of some of the games out there. A game that costs 60 euros can't be 10 hours long. Or well it can, but it shouldn't. Developers need to make it worth what you are paying. ALL THE TIME. That is one reason why I'm getting for example LPB2 :)
One of the reason we don't get free DLC an expansions anymore is because of pathetic low life pirates. Another is because of resellers of used games. Companies have to make money some how and if they can't they close their doors but ignorant people just can't seem to grasp that because they think they are owed everything on a silver platter for free. Software pirates are and always be just criminals, not freedom of information fighters like they would like to think or tell everyone, just scum who wouldn't know what an honest days work was if it hit them in the face. So the rest of us hard working people pay the price for these thieving losers.
...you sure? I don't recall ever seeing expansions for FREE and DLC's came about because consoles don't have modding tools and have to have content created for them. Pirates are scum, especially ones who stole the humble bundle, but I don't think Acti weren't making any money that they just HAD to sell maps for $15 a pop to get by. The only people that lose out are us "idiots" who actually pay for what we play.
"Another is because of resellers of used games. " You do realize reselling of used games have been around since SNES/Genesis right? They say that to mainly fool people.
Best article on N4G I've read in a long time.
There were people who pirated the humble indie bundle ? Jeeze...
Now where are the articles about developers worst dick moves pulled on gamers ???? Now that would be a good read
about minecraft YOu guys should stop believing every Hack attack comes from 4 chan ... 98% of 4chan users don't know sh*t about how internet works. the remaining 2% aren't organised enough to coordinate an attack Unless someone provoked them first . If nobody provoked 4chan , then the attack didn't come from them... And on minecraft case the attack didn't come from 4chan
Should have mentioned the crying whinefest petiton some fans made when DMC went multiplat
I usually skim an articles to get to the good part, but this was great. I read every word. Surprising it on N4G. These are the kind of articles i expect to reach over 500 degrees. Now that I think about it this is the first article I read that talks about gamers greed instead of developers greed.
Valve giving wonderful free updates too TF2 for many years and then people working hard to get items in TF2 legitimately then Valve releases a store where you can buy stuff (people worked hard for) for outrageous prices and making half the community turn into Trade Fortress 2. Dick move Valve
Gamesradar is the bomb!
Yeh, really for me, the humble indy bundle made it pretty obvious to me that all moral pretenses of pirates are bulls$%t. Simple as. Also, I find it funny how most of these dick moves came from pc games. Nice one guys. I never got how gamers feel entitled to anything, I always think of and appreciate the effort developers put into games unless they are really god awful or I truly feel I just didn't get value for money (that's not very often). Then again I hardly ever get games within the first few months of their release, it's a strategy I heartily recommend to anyone who feels that games aren't worth the 60$. Do you really need that game the day of release, I doubt it and you get the second opinions of the game after the hype and how it ages.You normally get it just in time for the first one or two dlc Packs
This is an interesting article because for all they go on about piracy and boycotts, it's websites just like this one that add fuel to the fire when some scandal does kick off.
