I know you love your system, and that's fine, but just go play it, enjoy it, and stop fixating on why you hate the other system. Do you really wanna spend a few minutes or hours of every day of your life on this site focusing on the things you hate?
This is an example of the mentality of the members of N4G and other sites...this was a PM from the member 'Morganfell.'
"What is sad are little shitbirds that have no life and instead worry about what I write. Laughable. You really are worthless. Tie your busted 360 around your neck, kiss your boyfriend goodbye and jump off a bridge into fast moving traffic."
Look how much hate there is in this statement. He doesn't even know me, but because I own both systems and like my 360, I'm automatically so bad I need to die? Also, because I like 360 I must be gay?
There is no reason for this type of attitude in the community. You know, we're all under attack as gamers from these greedy publishers who are buying up all the developers and forcing us to dumb down our expectations of a great experience year after year. And, while that should be what we're focusing on, we're sitting here bickering back and forth about which system (and by extension, which mega corporation) is less evil. Don't you think it says something about our systems when our key argument in this 'war' is why the other system is bad instead of why the system we like is good? Don't you think it says something when there exists real hardware issues like RRoD and YLoD and instead of demanding that these companies make better products, we argue that one is better because it doesn't happen as much??? It's crazy.
I love gaming, I love discussing games as I'm sure most of you do, but this generation is turning us into trolls and we're forgetting what actually matters...the fun. I know there are people out there, like the person I mentioned above, who really do get off on just being jerks that crave getting a rise out of other people just to make their lives seem slightly less worthless, but that isn't the majority of us. So what are the rest of us doing? Retaliating? Do you go to bed or wake up feeling better about yourself or like you've made a difference because you insulted someone else's favorite, game, system, online service, etc...? Just let it go.
The bottom line in all of this is that the corporations don't care about any of us as individuals, they only care about market share. They will say and do anything to keep us just happy enough to keep forking out the dough and that is as far as it goes. There is nothing personally redeeming about these companies, the only thing they offer us in return is a potentially great gaming experience, and that's ALL we should be asking for. There is no reason to be a fanboy of any company or system. Both can, do, and will continue to provide quality entertainment and nothing any of us say will sway the opinions of anyone who thinks differently. However, what you say might sway the people of the community's opinions about you... Do you really wanna ostracize yourself from the community that you love being a part of?
Think about that next time you are about to write a comment or link an article that is an obvious display of favoritism, bigotry, or pure hate.
Thank you. See you on PSN/Live/Steam
