Airing out my grievances
Player Chronicle -- Posted on Oct 26 2010
Are there any gaming communities without a huge amount of a**holes?
Earlier today I left Gamespot because someone was out to get me banned. I headed to Giantbomb with a blog about it and suddenly I get 17 replies, most of them ripping me apart for posting something and only the mods/admins welcoming me. My blog was put on public display in a FORUM. Not my personal blog, but open for all to see. Apparently all "blogs" on Giantbomb are done this way.
I've left Giantbomb already and the only question on my mind is the one above. I haven't been treated this bad since Destructoid, and around the time I left them I started coming to GoG.
Apparently for all the rapid-fire cursing people do when playing each other in video games it translates over to a**hat-ism online. My only options for gaming communities now include GoG (of course), ScrewAttack, GameTrailers, and an indie site.
I can't stand being talked down to, I know everyone is like that. But me, it just ticks off this little voice in the back of my head that says "I am about to unleash a salvo of beatdown on your face for even suggesting that I'm inferior to you." Its tough to do when people are hiding behind a keyboard.
On that thought, apparently being myself on the Internet is what is causing people to hate me. I show who I am all the time and trolls can't stand that. I guess they despise me for being honest with myself and others.
So yeah. Without a main gaming site to go to I guess that opens up more time for me.
