How Many Anti-Social Gamers Do We Have?

#1AreYouMirinPosted 3/30/2013 7:47:00 PM
Seems like every time I read about a big game, a few people chime in with "I wish they'd ditch multiplayer" or "I'm sick of devs sticking MP in games."

Also, pretty much no one talks on PSN. The very, very few times people actually have their mics plugged in, it's always heavy breathing, talking about something that's irrelevant to the game, or some pasty racist (no hate).

Btw, I know I'm mis-using the term 'anti-social', but most people have come to accept it as not wanting to interact with others...so, I'll go with that for this topic.

Btw (2), I just got Far Cry 3 (I know I'm late), and wow. It's unbelievable.

People don't talk on PSN because they don't have mics. If I wanted to hang with friends, I'd hang with friends. When I want to play a game, I play a game.

I only play fighters multiplayer wise and rarely.

If I'm gonna be social I'd rather do things besides video games, video games are for when I want to get away from people.

So....why do you play multiplayer games, just to not want to interact with people...except you do want to interact with people, because you clicked the online option? I feel like it's a waste of a potentially decent teammate. Ususally, games devolve into a quiet free for all.

You're not a loli or CoD fan, are you?

It's cool with friends, it's usually not with randoms. I also don't find it necessary or helpful with most games.

I'm a guy so I can't be loli. I get motion sickness whenever I play first-person so I'm not a CoD fan. Besides, it's hard to tell through writings and I can't see you smile or laugh or disappointed directly when you say unbelievable :p Unbelievable may mean two things: good or bad, after all. So... bad? xD

This isn't what I expected by the topic title.

People not talking on a game doesn't mean they're anti-social.

Some people don't like talking to strangers, some people are trying to focus, some people don't have mics (as someone else already pointed out). Some people just don't continually yap for no reason, either.
