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

Hello there, you've caught me enjoying another binge of gaming hate videos, this time around Anthem is the subject and I just love watching it disentigrate. 

Honestly, I made a gaming New year's resolution to not do the Fallout 76 thing in 2019 and bask in the heat of games as services as they roar to fire in the dumpster they were marched out the door in. I tried and I failed, Anthems flames caught my eye and dragged my attention but no more, I'm sick of this and I will not participate in it any longer regardless of whether they keep putting out shit to set on fire.

I'm done, I won't force positivity but I won't succumb to this darkness inside me of watching good ideas burn, I have cleared the usual suspects from my YouTube feed aside for some useful outlets like YongYea and a few others. 

It's 2019 and games should be getting better and better, not having media profit so damn much off of our human need to see destruction and understand it, from now on if there is a game that sets of my spider senses of failure I'm going to make one or two comments about it, get it out of my system and be done with it, let it die in peace instead of putting YouTube vids on recommended play the same hate filled shit while I play actual good games or do the dishes. 

How about you? Have you fallen into this trend? Do you want out or do you think it is a positive thing to bombard these devs and publishers with our hate so they *Kratos Voice* be better!?

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.

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

watch out: friend request incoming!! ;)

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.
