In the past I've made a lot of positive posts about up and coming or non-mainstream games and the overwhelming responses to my posts are to try to convince me how evil the company is, how bad the game will be, or to not even waste my time trying it.
The negativity here is outrageous and we should all step back and look at ourselves and how we express our opinions.
We always tear people down and complain about what they're doing, then immediately follow it up with wanting a Free 2 Play or Buy 2 Play game that they take the most immense amount of risk in creating.
I'm gonna name off some examples.
I was really excited about Guild Wars 2, I hadn't found time to try it until 2 months after release, but by then, these forums kept me from even considering playing. I finally played at a friends house and had a good bit of fun.
Darkfall 2 looked really amazing to me, the amount of hatred and vitriol made me not want to play the game just because of how much people complained about it. Before they had even seen it I found out that 80% of all money that went towards that game funded the throne of satan himself.
If you make a post even saying the remotest positive thing about WoW (Which is actually pretty fun) you get stomped out publicly.
If you try to ask for donations to a designer with Kickstarter, the overwhelming response is people speculating about how bad it's going to be or complaining about how much has been spent on kickstarter already when they probably don't even have a credit card.
My point is all attempts to uplift and help people enjoy a gaming experience are met disastrously here. I come on this site to find information about games and to see news about games and to find out where to download them. Usually I just see a whole lot of complaining and negativity.
Does anyone want to reply to this post with something positive to say about a game they're playing? I'd actually appreciate that. Let's have a positive post for once.
