I feel like online community is getting worse.

Maybe ist just me but, I remember when I can hop online find cool people to play with. After these consoles came out Ive went back to Singleplayer games and couch coop games. The online community is full of little kids or trash talkers. Gone are the days when most people on xbox live are cool. This gen made me resort back to single player games which im kinda glad cause I enjoy them so much more

i run into jerks online way more often than ppl who are cool to play with, i know they are only acting like idiots because they can hide behind mics and virtual avatars. The game community online is a big reason i prefer single player/couch co-op...i play to have fun and relax, not to listen to someone's stupid kid singing miley cyrus on the mic as loud as they can

What game are you playing. I play titianfall and Bf4 but no one uses a mic so I don't run into a lot of trash talkers. Cod is a different story

I've found the online community has been horrible since around the time Halo 3 was released.

I only introduced myself to online console gaming when Call of Duty 4 released, but you can see the difference in the mentality of the online community between that and Call of Duty as it was during Black Ops 2's life cycle (the last CoD I've played). Heck, you could see a difference in MW2...

Call of Duty was really my 'bread and butter' when it comes to online play on a console. Didn't like Gears of War, couldn't get into it. Neither could I get into Halo, though I think that was lack of playing with friends, a social thing. Battlefield 3 is the only other online game I could get into where you fight other players, and that was a contrast to CoD.

MechCommander Gold, Command & Conquer and Age of Empires back on the PC back in the day will always hold a place in my memory. Great communities.

people let out the bigoted monsters that they've always had inside themselves because they don't have to be held accountable for their actions online due to anonymous identities(at least most of the time). what you see in online forums and games is just what people are thinking on the inside in real life. ugly i know

It is getting worse. Just a small sample of the degradation of our society as a whole.

It is getting worse.

I wonder, though: if the internet came about suddenly 70 years ago, would the people of then be as disrespectful as they are now?
