Escapist

Not sure if you guys heard about this, but I am entirely disgusted. It's mainly these kinds of people that give online games (and gaming in general a bad name.) Basically this dude "often gets told he should die in a fire or kill himself or is a horrible person," all because of a Black Ops II update that made a couple guns less powerful.

What is this world coming to.

tl;dr -

Currently addicted to TF2. I main Demoknight. Steam profile. Check it out.

Not only do I feel that the whiny assholes are louder than us more mature people, I also feel that we're being outnumbered by them too.

Being an angry gamer myself, I know what it's like (often) to be upset at an unfavorable game result, but this is just beyond stupid. I guess that this is why we gamers get so much flack, no matter how much we control ourselves to avoid letting gaming consume us.
Not just in gaming. I've seen Beliebers and Bronies have this said about them too. There's a little fascism in all of us. Welcome to 1984.

How am I so creative? I think taking walks might have something to do with it.
Every single level I will ever make in SMM2 will be easier than Ultra Necrozma.
To be blunt, I think it's ridiculous. People shouldn't be that angry over some small tweaks in a videogame. Still, the idiots are the loudest...

Seriously, we should be more angry at EA. Drop all DLC prices by 75% and continue The Simpsons Game 2, for fuck's sake. You see, this is why I hate America.

Yeah, like The Simpsons is a gaming company's top priority.

Screw America, for not making more licensed games.

go play tapped out or something
twitter is basically where im at now
These news don't even need to be taken seriously: they're pretty much like activists against animal testing and soccer fans in Italy: people with no lives. I'd say that activists are even more dangerous.

Death threats? Seriously? No, just no.

I don't care if you're1 all butthurt over the changes in the new patch; making death threats is going way too far, especially over such a trivial aspect of a mere video game. Death threats get taken seriously, and you1 could even end up in prison for all I know.

1: "You're" and "you" refer to those in question that made the death threats.

Most likely some little kiddys getting annoyed at their COD games. Man this is funny XD
I think most of the death threats are like "Fukin die u faggot," "ill kill u 4 doing this" or that Gorilla Warfare copypasta.

This is just fucked up beyond belief! If you were not happy with something then you would send a message saying why you're not happy with a specific thing.
Sending death threats through Twitter is just fucking WRONG! The guy was just doing his job.

EDIT: Removed fanbase rant.
Woah dude, chill. This is probably the work of idiotic tweens that haven't really got a grip on what's important. Calling the entire fanbase stupid/vile is inaccurate, especially since the fanbase for it is so large. Even Sonic has such a large fanbase that there's no point in saying it's bad or good. Heck, that pretty much goes for any fandom.
Why in the world is this even a news story?

I get death threats on a regular basis from people over the internet, why in the world are these overagressive manaics given a voice?

Reacting to it, writing articles about it, defending people, just gives them a platform to yell louder. Lets stop agonizing over the poor maligned normal CoD players, or violence in video games, and just recognize that this guy is just looking for attention.
Sorry for being off-topic but what the hell are you doing to get death threats on a regular basis?

These people are obviously idiots, but it is shame that they somehow give gamers a bad name. After all, mentally unstable, irrational individuals such as them exist among all fanbases, regardless their interest.

I'm sorry, but this thread has been dead for around 3 months now. It's not allowed to bump threads on SMWCentral, this forum is not an exception.
