I tried to choose most of the games where I have seen a fair amount of people act like it is the be all end all of gaming, and are quite vocal about it. However, this isn't to say I got them all by any means, which is why the "Other" option was included.

I do agree...

But voted L4D anyway... Valve has a very elitist community imo... And L4D gets way too much praise.

This. I had a theory once that the Dark Souls fanbase was composed entirely of people who couldn't accomplish anything in real life, which is why they took a 'challenging' game so seriously. Not true, but in some cases I don't think far off, either. CoD's elitism has been laid pretty bare by the 'lag comp' flap of the last two games, in which there are people who think 'bad' players are there entirely to pad their numbers and make the game enjoyable for them, whereas in earlier games, they would say there should be a K/D requirement to play the game. Elder Scrolls elitists are pretty bad as well, but only DS fanboys wander off their own board so often they're actually a nuisance on the whole site.

What's with the unbridled Dark Souls fanbase hate? I thought they were one of the more helpful gaming communities out there.

Dark.Souls.

Great game, but I'd be 290% more invested in the series if I wasn't told that I was the scum of the earth and that God hand picked the worst genes in the universe to create me...all for saying I didn't absolutely love the games.

@Rezzman

They are, but some of them apparently talk about it too much on the system board and everybody apparently hates that.

Call of Duty isn't far behind. Is its fanbase elitist? I knew it was obnoxious online.

Dark Souls fanboys all seem to have little man syndrome.

Before you comment on one of my posts, please research the Dunning-Kruger effect. Best game of all time: Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. Gamefaqs mods are a joke.

I chose the Dark Souls community.

I can't believe some people actually voted Final Fantasy, jeez, those so called "fans" do
nothing but bash the series. I tried to get into the FF series before, but the fans pretty
much told me all the Final Fantasy games sucked. Weird.
