Grow a thicker skin and don't give up on gaming, there is not a single gamer who haven't. Usually they are hormone driven teenagers or immature di***s. I get at least one primitive, grammatically incorrect and senseless insult a week and I usually put it here: [link] you see now? you are not alone
Idiots are everywhere, that's what I have learned in life. Can't get away from 'em, even in the digital realm. I mostly just play games by myself now, or with my close friends, cause I know I will have fun with them when I do.
I once ate chicken while on mic, I didn't even notice. This is what happened: Guy: ASUKA IS SUKIN DIK me: no, I'm just eating chicken. Guy: NO GUIZE SRSLY, SHEZ SUKIN DIK. Everybody else: What kind of chicken? me: Tandoori guy: OH IS A INDIAN COK me: shut up.
that guy also asked to be my boyfriend after all that, nthx bra.
It's unfortunate that this happens, but if people are such douche bags in real life, I doubt people will act any different in an online environment. I get where you are coming from. Truth be told, I didn't start playing games online until late 2008. The first game I ever went online in was Super Smash Bros. Brawl. For the first week or two I was having a great time. It was exciting playing against other people across the globe other than people I knew in my local area. Later I realized that things weren't all happy fun sunshine in the world of online gaming. From glitch abusers, trollers, to hackers, the experience went south. Now that's just the Wii. When I moved to Xbox 360 the experience seemed 2x worse. Now you got verbal abuse. People feel so much more empowered anonymously behind a might, no? What I've come to the conclusion of was that all gamers what to do nowadays online is to make someone else feel miserable just to make themselves feel good. I'm not saying online gaming is bad, but playing with random nobodies gets really old after awhile. These days I just play offline and limit online play to just friends.
The world of internet gaming is full of bitter, hate-filled, antisocial people whose primary goal is to make others feel bad. The great thing about playing online is that it provides the distance and anonymity they require to behave that way. If they tried it in your home, an arcade or a tournament, they'd get their asses thoroughly kicked.
Pay it no mind. When it comes to dealing with pricks, I'm of a mind to believe that if I don't respect a person than their words shouldn't affect me. Why lose sleep over some douchebag with a username like "URaFagLOL". Let him hate all he wants. And laugh because you can almost guarantee that kind of behavior has made them angry, lonely failures in almost every aspect of their lives. When the game ends, they have nothing but a self-made shit pile of an existence to look forward to.
