There have been a lot of messed up things going on in the news recently, which of course gets everyone freaked out and riled up, which encourages more horrible stuff, which riles everyone up even more, ad infinitum. Things aren't great right now, and I get that.
But I feel like recently people are scouring the news for the most horrible stories and making absolutely sure to post every single one of them here on VGChartz. I don't know if it's out of genuine interest or if people are just point farming because those posts always get lots of replies. Either way, it's turning this into a place I don't want to visit. I try to keep off of social media and stay away from this kind of stuff as a whole, but we're at a point where it's literally impossible to scan the hot topics without seeing something depressing.
This is obivously not against the rules, but I personally can't handle it much longer, and if it continues I'll be forced to leave the site permanently. I don't know if anyone else feels this way, but I just want to come and talk about video games and have a good time. That's why I came here in the first place. But now it's getting just as bad as Facebook.
Anyone else feel this way, or am I just too sensitive?
