    Gah. How exactly is that what's wrong with gaming? It's just people being overexcited. Get over it. Fucking cretins on the comments building up a consensus that they have never got heated during anything competitive.

    Everything wrong with modern gaming can be summed up by the fact that developers don't get to decide what games get made, upper management and accountants get to decide what gets made.

    If you replaced playing CoD with arguing on a gaming forum, the result would be exactly the same.

    I thought this thread was going to be more confessional.

    Did my ears detect the note of an American accent there? (not in the guy that was interviewed)

    For everything that's wrong with gaming see the comments on IGN. Any of them, all of them, ugh.

    Although that could be everything wrong with teenage boys.

    If you click the order "worst" button on the comments, you'll see that the most reasonable posts have all been downgraded. The front page comments section is just full of fucking idiots.


    I fail to see what the problem is here. It's obviously all part of these COD events and seems no different to the trash talk in boxing, for example. It appears to be done with good humour and grace and there was some nice mutual respect shown at the end of the battle.

    It's because they're playing Call of Duty, right? Delightfully snobby.
    That's on -13


    Predictable holier than thou politically correct "sensible", throw arms up in horror, "I'm not like that" comments here by the bucketload. At least these guys have a bit of attitude. At least the room has got LIFE in it. Electricity!! Ever heard of that?

    Its like the house of commons at question time, its not polite and restrained and its all the more entertaining.

    How do you know they aren't all taking a drink together afterwards?

    I don't see what the problem here is. A lot of competitive sports have language far worse that what these lads were chucking about. I'm not condoning it, but in pressure matches, people say and do things they would never normally say and do.

    That's what's wrong with gaming...

    I agree. The Eurogamer front page is the problem.

    You can't say that that COD match on EG is anything other than fucking childish. There is literally no ounce of anything resembling decency on either side.

    It's embarrassing to watch; they make me cringe so hard.

    They really should just get rid of it, if you ask me. They can't even review games properly.

    There's nothing wrong with gaming. All the good games are still there if you look past the AAA shite.

    There's more good games being made now than there ever has been.

    The comment section's always been full of mongs, ever since all the sensible people moved to the forum (we were too busy talking about marmite and jaffa cakes and fucking up the comments threads anyway). Adding the ability for mongs to vote for other mongs has just mongified the whole thing up even more.

    I see nothing wrong with that video, I mean this is the sort of behaviour you see in the stands at every football game ever, it's just heat of the moment shit.

    Add "and can ruin games through their own greediness" and we're there.
