Nutjobs exist everywhere and in no way are limited to LoU2 haters. It is also worth noting that a few nutjobs do not represent even half of all LoU2 haters.

In any case however, this behavior makes me sick. Imagine just doing your job to put food on your table, and you recieve hate and death threats over a script that you did not even write.

Who said it was limited to TLOUpt2 haters? The thread is about them, not every single nutjob out there.

Right? Like, don't try to downplay it just becuase they're not the only ones. This is another case of "#AllNutjobsMatter". sure, crazy people are everywhere and they are all equally dangerous, but right now we're focused on the ones threatening a voice actress for her portrayal of a character they don't like (Which is awfully familiar to Rose from The Last Jedi...)

That's one from the 'shitty person playbook'. Whataboutism. "Sure, these people are psycho, but what about the people who were nasty to people in these other fandoms?" 

No, this is not healthy discourse. Don't try to disregard it so it looks less bad than it actually is.

In what way did LoU2 challenge conventions LOL

Anyway, don’t paint everyone with such a broad brush. A small minority of people don’t represent everyone.

Yeah, I actually meant to make sure I wasn't trying to put everyone in a single group. Original post edited.



All twitter users are nutjobs. Nothing to do with people who don't like the game.

We can all just exaggerate. Mine is more justified.

It's one thing to state your opinion about something.

But sending death threats to people who created a game because they didn't make it the way you liked is extremely childish behavior. I would be embarrassed to even be associated with these people.

It not just something i've seen with the last of us 2 either. It's happened with other games i've played and some shows i've watched as well. If you don't like something just ignore it or pretend it doesn't exist.

I just don't get these people that have to go out of their way to show they dislike something.



It's just a minority of people. Plenty of people who dislike TLOU are not like this. Me. Just often the minority who act like this is the loudest. I dislike TLOU as I don't feel it challenges anything. I dislike Duckman for various reasons for him being a creep. Pretentious. Petty. Not a fan of TLOU as it's nowhere near as good as people say it is. Not a fan of the cult-like following ND has. Extremists exist on both sides and both need to stop. Sure I may dislike TLOU but I'd never do this kinda stuff. Then there are people who enjoy TLOU but don't act like it's gods gift to gaming either. However, this is too far. Way too far. Fandoms often just go too far one way or the other and it's dumb.


I despise what they have done with Star Trek with Kurtzman. I mean I really hate the new Trek. I never once sent him a death threat. Never wished him death or any harm. I only wished he didn't have anything to do with Trek. However, it is a TV show and I will live. If people who are fans of TLOU and do not like the direction. Well sucks for you but if you have not noticed. Worse things in the world esp now and no form of entertainment is worth sending death threats or such hateful speech.

The title says all LoU2 haters are nutjobs, as if no one can hate the game without being a nutjob.  I simply stated that nutjobs are everywhere and they only make up a vocal minority of those who genuinely hate the game.

Did you only read one sentence and then smash the quote button?  Because the point went totally over your head.

Fanatism and entitlement always bring out the worst of people. Not to mention those who only do it for trolling. This entire TLOU2 campaign puts in evidence something we've seen before not only in gaming, but also in film. I just cant understand the mindset of a person who jumps from "I absolutely dislike this product" to "Im gonna send death threats to the voice actor because fuck him/her". Nutjobs indeed.



Deep rooted issues which result in misplaced anger and hate is one of the main reasons for these types of alarming behaviors tbh and they definitely need penalties when crossing the line and reach potential physical harm to others when its especially over things that are trivial!
