Well the title speaks for itself. I have been sort of put off by the amount of people who say "I hate this game! Don't play it either!"
For some reason these threads then become some of the most popular and most visited because of the drama that ensues, taking away energy, time and focus from positive criticisms and information about the game for others. A discussion and debate is cool but to merely state that you did not like it, your reason why and then flame the game and tell others not to play AND then to continue to flame the forum with your criticisms even after you decided the game isn't for you???
I undertand a persons right to speak.So stating you don't like some features, why and even telling others not to play(because you care ever so much about their time and finances right, how compassionate) is theoretically ok. But why do we as forum users then respond to it? And why then do these people who have said "I'm out, "this different game" is sooo gonna hit the spot for me" continue to troll the forums of games they don't intend to play. And I mean these people seldom get called out for being trolls. They are provided with legitimacy over and over by being responded to, as if the same complaint over and over by a person who said they don't intend to play should matter. Just leave that games forums right? We understand you are bitter about the game not panning out for you, but honestly, our energy shouldn't be wasted responding to your plights more then once, or at all really.
I am apprehensively awaiting FF14 but intend to buy it for sure and I must say every third thread is someone telling us why the open beta has convinced them to cancel their preorder and that others should too. But not only do they do this, they become these incessant "hangers-on" that will repetitively complain about cancelling their preorder, the open beta, SE and the game without end. Don't these people have lives? But not just FF14, Mortal Online and really any game that has enough hype to make it worthwhile for these attention seekers.
Bah, I apologize for my wall of text. But in your opinion do you think there should be more focus on telling people to try games for themselves, instead of saying "Believe me, no really, believe me, no honeslty believe me when I tell you NOT to play this game. Awful, just awful. Honestly? Honestly? Awful...Seriously." How about "Not for me, but maybe for you"
