    This is a nice sigh of relief for anyone else who hates logging into any online game just to be greeted by people saying how they fornicated your overweight mother orally last night.

    True, this has been the general consensus amongst gamers about this matter, but it's nice to finally have research done on it that confirms it. :)

    Was this done by the same people who think eating a lot makes people fat?

    Instead of paying people to research this they could have asked me and i'd have told them this for half the price.

    It's kind of obvious.

    Am I imagining things, or are you trying to defend the Agressive gamers?

    Does my strategy of charging at enemies in Skyrim instead of sneaking around qualify?

    Read the article, they are refering to people like the "CoDFags" as they are known who needlessly strongly hurl insults at other random people, "aggressive" has nothing to do with actual gameplay in this case.

    Nope. Not defending anyone. Tryhard starts losing, tryhard gets pissed, tryhard either does much worse, or they start trying cheap as hell tactics to pick up the slack, or they go balls out just trying to mow everyone down rambo style.

    Not only that, but people who tend to do well with video games have a much more logical thought process and greater hand eye coordination than the average person.

    im somewhere in the middle of it all. I charge in, button mash, certainly not the most strategic player . but i don't get to the point of insulting or rage quitting. and sometimes i lose repeatedly, like i often do against this one person, other times im a complete beast.
    so i believe its just a matter of maturity more than anything.

    I don't understand why some people cannot tolerate noobs...

    I mean every single time, they just blame them and do everything in their own selfish ways....

    To be fair, most players I've encountered don't have problems with newbs/newbies (people who don't play well because they are new to the game and don't know better). The anger (excessive as it may be) is really only directed towards noobs (people who don't play well but aren't new to it and should know better).

    It's not that we don't tolerate noobs, we don't tolerate "HEY FUCK YOU YOU KILLED ME I FUCKED YOUR MOM HAHAHA YOUR MOMS SO FUCKING FAT HURR DURR CHECK OUT MY HURR DURR SHUT UP SMALL DICK BLAH BLAH INSULT INSULT MAD MAD WTF WTF GRRR!!!". That shit's annoying, and it seems every little 12 year old is doing it these days and it's mostly on FPS, like CoD. Hence "CoDFags"
