Gamers: The Spoiled Children of Society?

I think it’s fair to say that gamers aren’t often the most appreciative people on the planet; the most minor slip up can lead to thousands of irate comments on message boards across the net and even the most trivial change to a game’s story or gameplay results in hundreds of negative user reviews. Three recent examples however have brought this to the forefront of my mind, and upon thinking a little harder it isn’t difficult to find many examples of gamers being impatient, unappreciative, and downright childish. - TheStonedSheep

Absolutely agree. The Potato Sack ARG was the perfect example of Valve trying to do something awesome and STILL have folks jump up their ass for it.

you can't please everybody. Give them a foot they demand a yard. We have basically spoiled ourselves with expectations that we dont take into consideration regarding what it costs and who actually pays.

What is really troubling is the sense of entitlement people feel, like companies owe them a debt and must repay it.

This industry is becoming a bit of a joke. It has become more of a popularity contest than an actual industry that supports innovative game creations. Journalists take a dump over a game to jerk off their own ego by showing off their colorful vocabulary and just how witty they can be.

Gamers simply hate games because it's cool to do so. People dissing games before they've even played them. Writing reviews from watching game-play footage.

Yeah, we are spoiled. It's sad but true.

my son doesnt appreciate what I went through to amass such a collection of games/consoles. He just wants to play his games instead of seeing the bigger picture.

If you buy it yourself, you tend to respect it more and appreciate it. If it's handed to you then.......

The rights and privilege aspect is similar to what is classified core and casual these days. To be considered 'core' years ago was about the amount of time you invested in the craft. Playing the good with the bad. It wasnt just about the type of game you played.

You could be a hardcore angry birds gamer because you play it constantly. I wont pass judgement based on the game...we are all on the same side when it comes to gaming. Seems people just forget that from time to time.

I am glad I have matured enough to know that I am not owed anything that what they give us is a privilege not a right. I remember the days when you bought a game you got what was in the box no patches or dlc Gamers these days are spoiled.
