I’m sure everyone has seen this, but usually when a big name title is announced/released, it gets threads upon threads of bashing, nitpicking, and the occasional logical discussion. It happened with Aion, Star Trek Online, or any MMO for that matter Street Fighter IV, Bayonetta (that was a pretty big console war), MW2, and most recently Final Fantasy 13. So ignoring the obvious flame baits like such and such game sucks, you’re a noob if you like it and other senseless post like that, why is it that some people start hating, flaming, insulting another user who post contrary to the hater’s belief?
Right now FF13 seems to be a really touchy subject even more so than Bayonetta. What ever happened to game on game discussions and comparisons in a discussion forum? It’s now resorted to console bashing and various other attacks personal using a multiplatform video game as an excuse. It’s pretty tame here compared to some other forums. Users are getting banned or suspended because he/she doesn’t like FF13 or whatever game is currently the “in” thing now.
