Worst type of gamer? May. 14th, 2011 @ 05:19 AM Reply

What in your opinion is the worst type of gamer? It can be anyone like general noobs, 12 year olds or even ragequitters.

I personally hate artfags/indiefags. You know, the kind of people who criticize mainstream games for the sake of it being mainstream, despite the fact that these mainstream games are probably pretty fun to play. I'll take a typical comment from gamespot to show you what I mean:

"I assumed this would happen sooner than later. It's a shame that recycling the same old crap and churning out sequels is what makes money in the video game industry. You've got people trying something new and completely original (the Borderlands developers) and people adding depth to their previous games (the Assassin's Creed II or Uncharted 2 devs), then you've got developers who play it safe and recycle the same engine, and add some plot twists to the story rather than trying to reinvent much of anything."

Comments like these may be worryingly true, but these games are fun. Every Call of Duty since Modern Warfare may be the exact same every year, but they're fun. That's why people play it.

Anyway, so what is your least favourite type of gamer?

Elitist PC gamers are the worst. The ones who always say that PC gaming is superior to consoles for whatever reason.
They're also just complete pretentious wankers.

Ragequitters/quitters

I don't play a lot of online myself but my brother does. He likes to play PES online. Just football matches against random people. A lot of the time when the other person is losing you will find that they either shut their console full down (or idk how they do it) so the game gets disconnected or stopped, or they will just pause the game and hope that the person winning will give up before they do. They have timers on these games now, but I think it's like 10 minutes and not many gamers want to wait 10 minutes just to receive about 20 points for their profile.

My story isn't very good.

I just hate people who cannot accept their defeat and have to try to cheat to stop themselves losing.

Fanboys

Well, maybe not all fanboys. There's nothing wrong with being loyal to a particular game/series/console, but the fanboys who like to think that their opinion is superior to everyone else just really annoys me. They seem to have some kind of personal vendetta against everyone with different interests to them. Why does it bother them so much that I enjoy playing on my Xbox more than my PS3? I can't see how it actually effects them in any way at all, yet they act like I've committed some kind of immoral act.

Ragequitter's by far I hate it when they scream "This game is to hard!".... it's meant to be... IWBTG Players are especially guilty.

Fanboys. You can't talk about a specific system or your computer specs without someone saying "lawl Dell compootur" or "ps3 iz bettur than xbx." I hate that shit. Really? I mean it's all preference and people need to just deal with it. That's the type of thing that pisses me off, opinionated fanboy dicks.


Yea, I farm Anal Penguins. Do something about it.

Same story here with my brother who likes to play Fifa 2011 online. Lots of people just disconnect whenever they're losing big time. Good that they changed the rules so that if you give up or disconnect you'll automatically lose with 3-0, but it's still annoying that people just ragequit whenever they're clearly outclassed. What's also a bit annoying is that EVERYBODY plays with either Real Madrid, Chelsea, Barcelona or Inter Milan, but that's outside the scope of this topic.

Anyway, what I personally think is a bad type of gamer is someone who just doesn't take time to enjoy a game. The kind of person that will just skip through every dialogue in the game and gives up quickly if things are getting a little hard or if he doesn't know what to do (often because he didn't bother to read the dialogues).

I don't know really, when you're down 15 to 0 and every pass you intercept is taken to the goal immediately, because you suck and that other guy is a high professional. I can understand that you get like "Fuck this." especially if the other takes this occasion to taunt you for being such a sad piece of ridicule.

Personally, with very few PvP experience, I wager hackers and poor sportsmanship are annoying. Plainly people fighting dirty as fuck. Like corpse camping or spancamping, so they shoot you as soon as you respawn unarmed.

These two types share my lowest spot:

-"Hardcore" gamers who refuse to play anything that doesn't have immense amounts of blood and gore.

-"True Hardcore" gamers who cling to their NES's, avoid anything that's currently popular and refuse to play anything that DOES have immense amounts of blood and gore.

Agree'd, though there is probably one type of gamer worse than that: the Sonic fantard, a creature of impossibly high standards and complete and total moral and mental decay.

I don't play online, but that doesn't keep me from hating the 12 year olds who say things like;
"OMG U KILD ME FUKIN N00B!!!!1!"
And when I give them a logical response like;
"That's the point of the whole game."
They'll say;
"STFU N00B I FUK UR MUM LOLZ OWND!!!!!!!!!!!!1lasxmzcxxbcaxj"

Sorry, kind of raged my keyboard there.

Basically, these brats.

I hate when youre playing zombie games specifically, and if you screw up the whole team decides to votekick you for a minor flaw. I'm sorry I couldn't revive you. I was being attacked by all the zombies you failed to kill, plus the zombies that were originally after me. Maybe you shouldn't have shot that witch or used your medkit when you still had 50+ health.

and for COD, I don't know what windows yours when you're running around the map jumping off the stairs.

and also, the people on Halo who teamkill you because you took the sniper rifle. Or when they take the sniper rifle, suck with it. I pick it up after they die with it, then teamkill me to get it back. Or blow up my Banshee cuz I got it first. Grow up. it'll respawn.

and more recently Brink. "MEDIC! HALP! HAAALP!... fuck it" *Cortex detonator*

I hate those hypocrites who will call you out for disliking a game because of one aspect, but talk about how awesome a game is because of one single aspect.

For example:
"If you prefer Game X over Game Y you must prefer graphics over gameplay. Game Y is better than Game X and here's why; <short essay about Game Y's better-than-Game X's plot and only the plot>"

Which Sonic? The classic Sonic or the new ones? Cause the new ones are pretty bad. They could be really good, but they're always full of bugs and have terrible NPCs. I think they focus too much on the graphics for cutscenes.

Also sore losers.

I think he means the people who jizz all over Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 and cherry pick, picking the worst Sonic games and acting like all of them are that bad. The people who talk about how bad Sonic 4 and Sonic Colors are really just jump on the hate bandwagon.

People who take games way to seriously and get enraged when they lose. I also hate people with shitty headsets. Don't buy a $5 piece of shit and use it in the game. Nobody wants to hear your shitty and muffled voice.

Any player who thinks that just because they know some sort of glitch, it makes them superior. I told some fucking retarded kid in RDR that I didn't give a fuck that he was off the map, he told me that he fucked my mom. I told him to fuck himself and got everyone to kick him from the server.

I haven't played Sonic Colors but Sonic 4 really was a heap of shit. Or at least episode 1 was.

THANK YOU, I couldn't have said it better myself.

I hate having a partner that blames someone else for his own suckage. Especially in Halo 3, COD, and left 4 dead. AlsoI hate rage quitters and people who turn off their system in the middle of a game, which fucks everyone's connection up although sometimes they may not have a choice.

People who complain every time they die or get attacked can shut the fuck up. It's gonna happen so quit bitching.

Oh and hackers that affect game play can suck my nuts too.

People who take the game way too seriously. It's a game, and it's meant to be fun. I'm not impressed that you got to wave 60 in zombies by yourself, but it would impress me if you would make playing with you enjoyable for one day.

Blame console wars. I agree alot of fans can be retarded, especially twilight and sadly, sonic fans..excluding me.
