I so rarely play online I really only remember the good moments. I guess the worst moment was something that was my fault and I was oblivious. I had a real moment of brain dead. It was not intentional. My first time playing Journey. I was at a mountain and I wanted to get up on a platform to get a piece of the cape I think ( been many years since I played) another person helped me up. I pinged them to thank them then ran off. They kept pinging me and I thought they were saying hello...only when it was just too late did I realize I left them hanging. I felt so bad. They probably looked at the post-game names and wondered which one of them was the asshole that wouldn't help.

Maybe they are still there, waiting for you to guide them?

Getting trolls on online games is worst than getting insults.

Trolls waste your time, insults in a game means nothing, people are snowflakes. League of legends have the worst of them.

The worst trolls, insulters, snowflakes, or yes?

Back in the day that I played it a lot (so I guess 2011/2012, maybe?) it was filled with all of those lol.

Getting fed up with bad drivers in GT Sport race after race. Then in one race I snapped after getting rammed repeatedly again right from the start. I targeted one of offenders and punted him a bunch of times out of revenge and frustration. Over reaction if just seen in the context of what that one person did, but I had reached my limit.

Nex day I log in to GT Planet and he has posted a video of me punting him, calling me the dirty driver. A bunch of people that apparently didn't like me jumped on board the hate train and reputation ruined. Oh well, less reading/posting, more time to race.

Later I got banned for repeatedly calling out Brazilians. It's apparently against the TOS to compare driving 'styles' by nationality. Nowadays the game has completely turned into Wreckfest, the dirty drivers have won. (Naming and shaming is also against TOS, but apparently not when it's naming and shaming me lol, I don't think the mod likes me very much)

I've had people target me repeatedly as well in GT Sport in the races and chat, even got threats in private messages, but whatever. Fighting back is not allowed! (I do anyway, don't mess with my car)

This is the kind of specificity I was looking for, thank you!



Played GTA Online once, back in 2014, I saw random people running everywhere with children insulting everybody, a buggy mess



"Quagmire, are you the type of guy who takes 'no' for an answer ?"
"My lawyer doesn't allow me to answer that question"

So many in Rocket League. The other day I uninstalled because I got 3 teammates in a row who couldn't hit easy balls, in PLATINUM 3 rank, while the opponents of course were air dribbling from walls xD It is mental torture, DIGITAL HELL.

Apart from that I have one memorable moment when I had started playing The Last of Us Survivors mode and I thought it would be a good strategy to follow the more experienced players and learn from them but one of them turned his mic on and yelled [MY NAME] STOP FOLLOWING ME YOU DUMB *UCK.

Deus Ex (2000) - a game that pushes the boundaries of what the video game medium is capable of to a degree unmatched to this very day.

I used to play Eve Online and fight in the big fleets, huge alliances. Thousands were on comms at the same time, listening to one Fleet Commander. If that FC was a pleasant person, good for you, but sometimes you'd get one who would be cursing people out left and right because they didn't do something exactly correctly. The thing about Eve, especially in the old days before time bubbles, is that it doesn't matter if you are running the best rig in the galaxy, you are going to lag when there are literally 5,000+ players fighting in the same battle. And by lag, I mean 1 frame per maybe 1 minute. By the time you came out of the bubble (after enough people died and were podded) you, yourself, would have been podded back to base. I mean, you people that love FPS in games would DIE fighting in a big battle in 2012 in Eve lol.

Nowadays they have these time bubbles, so the game adjusts gameplay speed based on how many are near each other. So instead of game lag, everyone's ships move at a ridiculously slow speed. You can still see what's going on, including the firing of weapons, and watch them hit their target minutes later lol. Some of my favorite and least favorite gaming memories are in Eve Online.

Now you get banned for anything.

I just had one, literally last night while playing Halo Infinite. I've been playing online games since 2000, and this was by far my worst moment. I was camping around a corner--crouching of course so I was off radar--because I knew someone was coming. I waited, waited, waited, the person ran out as expected and then... I started shooting air like a moron. The guy casually jumped, turned around, meleed me twice and killed me without so much as taking a single bullet--and this after me playing the franchise since 2001. I don't know how it happened, either. I just had a brain fart to end all brain farts, I guess. It was so utterly pathetic that all I could do was laugh.

My runner up to that?

Thinking--back when voice chat first started on XBL--that turning my mic on and saying hello to everyone was going to net me friends.

It didn't.

It just got me banned, and called a homosexual slur.

I learned my lesson.

You got banned for saying hello?



The first (and only) time I played Call of Duty Black Ops with my coworkers. I don't think I got a single kill. Even when I was shooting somebody, one of them would swoop in and get the kill. I think I was almost all of the deaths in the game, too. The other team was DESTROYING me.

Eventually, one of my teammates said "If you paid money for this game, please get a refund." and everyone laughed. I said "I'm logging off and going back to playing Mario."
