I've been watching the mourning fiasco with interest, im in the dark and light story right now.
Some people seem to have a urge to "bully" poorly develloped games. People put a LOT of energy getting quotes, getting the masses to think alike (negativly) about a game.
Where does this come from? I allways try to approach things positvly myself, thats why im allways suprise at posters that collect millions of posts from other boards just to show the negative feedback a game gets. They often even photoshop it to pieces of art. Why is this?
Are these virtual bullies? And the games being that fat kids in class? People just want to put something in a negative light, and get as many people to help them to break a game? I mean i understand people who critisise games on a board (i do it myself). Even when they go a long way to do so, but usually these people spend days on forums to just flame everything that could turn things in a remotly positive light. I mean this isnt just telling people how crappy a product might be, this is investing loads of time destroying (or trying to) something. If the game would fail they probably feel victorious.
Or maybe its just boredom?
I wonder, where does it come from ? Any thoughts ?
P.s. i dont mean people who discuss about the ups and downs (or one of both) of a game. Or people that just critisise a game strongly. Some people just scan these boards, know every single mistake a develloper makes, collect quotes, etc.
