Question for older gamers: Have gamers always been as grouchy as they are today?

But there *is* *too* much and more important things in life *than* perfecting your *grammar* in every way. *It's* always good to improve yourself but people are aware of *their* imperfect *grammar* and don't need to be told this by every other post from a *grammar* elitist.
No one is being a "grammar elitist", it's simply respecting the medium with which you choose to communicate. The only excuse is if English is not your first language.
I mean, c'mon person, how wood you like it of other peeple rote every poast like you dew?
You commonly misspell words that are easy to remember. By refusing to improve your typing habits, you instantly lose credibility and come across online as a backwoods hokum who can't speak effectively, therefore leading to the notion you cannot be taken seriously in a conversation.

Geez people, stop arguing over grammar. Who cares?
Arguing about grammar? Perhaps it is only grouchy gamers who care about such things or maybe bad grammar makes gamers grouchy...Who knows!

It wasn't how it is today in the older days. I believe it more has to do with the fact of being able to now connect with your consoles via the internet and such. The newer generation of gamers just tend to complain about the games more than the ones who started in the older days (no offense to anyone).

I don't know TC but you sound just as whiny as the people you are criticizing.

My first console was a NES. I got a SNES when I was about 10. I used to get really angry at NBA JAM 90something. I complained about it to my sister who gave not one **** about it so Im sure Id have been on the internet moaning about it if Id had the access and know how.
Complaining is as old as our species. Too hot, too cold, brother in law is lazy, holy man is unfair, wrong type of bamboo..and so on.
When I die I have a list of complaints I want to give to El Creator.
Namewitheld...Great signature, btw! How does bamboo fit in with our topic?

I agree completely, when I was growing up kids did not whine and moan incessantly about trivial stuff, we simply stopped playing a game that was crap and played the ones we liked. We also didn't have a sense of entitlement and didn't act like game devs owed us something.
These days it has become popular for people to whine about insignificant details and act as if every game is the worst one ever made, the same thing happens with movies on forums like IMDB.
The internet gives people a voice and the ability to express their opinions in a public forum even if they are trivial and immature. Also people can troll and be obnoxious without fear of reprisals and a face to face confrontation. The internet attracts a lot of people with poor social skills and serious personality flaws, such people cannot accept another person's point of view if it differs from their own.

Even in the early 90s on BBSes, people were going "man these new consoles are so casual." Seriously.
But yeah, it's more visible now, and it's honestly probably resulting in an echo chamber of crybabies having more of an influence on games then any of us would want.
By Grabthar's Hammer, what a savings.
