Forums - Gaming Discussion - Biggest online meltdowns in videogame history? [Video complete- thanks for the help!]

Hey there,

I'm doing research for a video on the biggest videogame-related meltdowns on internet forums etc., and I thought it'd be interesting to hear your opinions.

What are some of the largest, most extreme reactions you've seen in response to a videogame-related event? What sort of things did you see on those days?

Monster Hunter 4 on 3DS... Bayonetta 2 on WiiU... Final Fantasy XIII on 360... there's no shortage of examples for sure. 

Looking forward to hearing your responses!


Update: Managed to finish the video with help from suggestions from this forum! It's not professional quality by any means, but I hope you enjoy it (and maybe can get all nostalgic about previous meltdowns that you'd forgotten about :D)

first time sonic on nintendo

I'm afraid I haven't paid much attention to these things until I joined this site a year ago.

The Bayonetta 2 fiasco was really bad. I remember some guy starting a site designed solely to encourage consumers to buy a used Wii U and a used copy of Bayonetta so neither Nintendo nor Platinum saw a single cent for their treasonous actions.

Probably Resident Evil 4 on PS2 or Shenmue 2 on the original Xbox.. the conspiracy theories and downplaying were nothing short of hilarious.

Edit: and the PS3 price announcement at E3 2006 - the most rabid and loyal PS/PS2 enthusiasts suddenly cared about Xbox Live and offset analog sticks after mocking the original Xbox for years.

WOW I wans't present at that time but it would have been EPIC.

Edit, threads mixed up! XIII will always reign supreme!

Xbone DRM > FF XIII.

You had Sony fans and Xbox fans united in that hate.
