^This.
Sprint,Armor Abilities,The Story....
The funny thing is, it's been like this for Every Halo.
>New Halo comes out
>People hate on it
>Call it worst Halo ever
>Next Halo comes out
>People hate on that Halo and start praising the previous one.

Believe or not there was actually an entire website Called WeHateHalo2.com or something along those lines.

- FF7 fanboys who hate every other FF


This one is worth mentioning because it still happens. In 2017, the release of FF7 will have happened twenty years ago. In video game terms, that is several generations of consoles. FF7 is older than many of the people who praise it.

...Most? I can't think of a single gaming community where the good outweighed the bad. Maybe I've just had poor luck interacting with people.


It actually doesn't take many bad apples to ruin the barrel.

For instance, take LoL, back before when everyone was always able to chat with all players. You're playing with or against 9 random people each game. Play three games in an evening, and that's 27 people. It only takes one jackass to make a game not fun--but if 1/3 of all games are ruined, you're going to think that the community is incredibly toxic. Which means that if 26 out of every 27 people who play LoL are really good people to play both with and against, you can still walk away thinking that LoL has an awful community. An MMO raid might have between 10 and 40 players--and again, it only takes one to make the experience miserable.

It's made worse by the nature of forums and twitch chat feeds. Modest players, who go to the forums looking for information and have no desire to shove their own opinions down the throats of others, don't post very much. The trolls and holier-than-thous, however, post quite often--after all, they aren't participating in a community to learn, they are participating to prove their own superiority.

I firmly believe that most players of any game are only playing to have fun, not to ruin the experience of other people, and that only a very small percentage of players are problematic for a community. But in most games, that's all it takes.

Seeing the tweets to Harada, a minority of Tekken's fanbase are whiny idiots.

I've seen things like:
"DON'T YOU DARE KILL MY CHARACTER, I'LL KILL YOU".
"WHERE IS JIN IN TEKKEN 7? F YOU!!!"
"We don't like Lucky Chloe because she has boobs"
"Please remove [types almost all of the roster, leaves only Mishimas]"

A lot more "jumping the gun" tweets to the point that Harada will turn into another Kamiya.

In my experience, any game that aims to be/is claimed to be a "competitve" game tend to have awful communities, this goes double if the game is also free to play.

Don't forget how much the community loves to exaggerate small issues. The amount of complaints over the Wall·E Sniper Rifle and the latest Rocket Launcher was hilarious. I like the series but it's almost impossible to find decent discussion unless you just want an excuse to eat popcorn.

The Silent Hill fan base has a ton of elitists.

Online gaming communities tend to suck, too.

Pretty much any competitive online environment. I've gotten to where I completely avoid most games with multi-player parts. I loved the Gears of War series, but there's only so many times you have people randomly calling you derogatory names and whining cause you are "teh sucks" that you say screw it and find that its not worth your time.

I'll say that the worst I've experienced, in order:

Call of Duty fans
Halo fans
Super Smash Bros fans
Gears of War online fans

CoD is pretty annoying. You can't just be better then anyone else. Plugged in the old 360 and fired up Black Ops 2 a month or 2 ago and wrecked this clan a bunch of games in a row of search. They check my stats see my K/D over 2, I'm a cheater. So I get bored and pull out my diamond shotgun, which I worked my ass off for, and continue to wreck them and now I'm a booster and a cheater. Laughable. It's like that 9 times out of 10. I try to stick to party chat when I play.

Remember the good ol' days when Halo 2 was out and the only time people complained was when they got the superjumping elite that had aimbot and could shoot through walls? Good times man. Good times.


League fans are pretty high on my list. I had a roommate who flipped shit on me when I told him to take it easy after he lost a game. (This doesn't apply to all LOL players, just the ones that get way too into it.)

I think Dark Souls 2 and League of Legends have the worst fanbases.
