Forums - Gaming Discussion - I am fearful of my own hate in 2019.

I don't fall into the hate mindset. I just know that there are very few of these big publisher backed triple A games out there that will appeal to me. Once I came to terms with that and stuck with the AA and smaller games, my enjoyment and satisfaction as a whole increased.

Frankly, when "fans" bombard a publisher with overblown hate and whatnot, I can't help but roll my eyes.

Good luck with that. If we prefer to highlight what we like instead of hating and downplaying everything we do not, we can make this world a better place. This is a mindset that should be common in general, not just games.

Gameplay > Graphics

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

I'm absolutely sick of the "omg I don't want this game so they should stop making it" mentality. Some people are so damn self-centered and self-righteous--and about gaming, of all things. If something isn't intended for someone they need to get the fuck over it. Not everything has to be for everyone.

It's often the same people whining about the same things, over and over. With a lot of series, everytime a thread about that series opens, there will be the same exact group of haters complaining about something they aren't going to buy. It's poisonous. For whatever reason, there are a lot of gaming elitists here, which is a goofy thing to be elitist about.

I do get some satisfaction out of seeing certain games crash and burn. I honestly hope any games that push online-only, "live services," aggressive & intrusive microtransactions (esp. loot boxes), and other "Triple Aaaayyyyy" fuckery do poorly or at least raked across the coals for pushing that garbage. I do feel for any developers that might lose their jobs if such games sell poorly, but I will not weep a single tear for the publishers, who are the ones responsible for the parade of anti-consumer practices.


In accordance to the VGC forum rules, §8.5, I hereby exercise my right to demand to be left alone regarding the subject of the effects of the pandemic on video game sales (i.e., "COVID bump").

I feel like John needs to watch more Star Wars movies, preferably the ones where Yoda or Obiwan speaks.

You beat me to it, by 5 mins...Congrats!!

Love ya!!

it's a weird mentality honestly there's so much variety of content out there for people with different taste. I never understood how people can just enter a topic to just spew hate over and over again about something they have no intent to buy

Edit: Dang it, somebody already beat me to it, did a Palpameme before me.

Well to be fair I was surprised no one else had already posted it given the thread's title.
