Watching the E3 streams and reading some game threads on both Reddit and Neogaf after either their announcements or a reveal of new gameplay, I genuinely can't get over how relentless the cynicism is. Granted, I've pretty much ignored any gaming website's comment section for the entirety of the year for precisely this reason so I'm not sure why I decided to care now either, but nobody has any actual criticism to offer at all, even in the loosest sense of the word: the thread for The Order 1886 on Neogaf is basically just a fucking stream of people saying 'wow that looks shit' 'lel gameplay what gameplay' 'they should back away from any creative decisions they've made and make the game I want'. Do they just hunt for shit to complain about? If you don't like the game, don't buy it. Seriously. That new Fable didn't really interest me too much, but guess what? Unless it manages to sway me in the opposite direction, I'm probably just not going to buy it.
I can't imagine how it must be for people who actually work in gaming to read nothing but negativity, because I have nothing to do with it at all and I can't bring myself to read any comments either.
What is it about gaming that breeds this? Or is this just the internet? I've noticed Tumblr does the same thing but with basically everything else
And now I'm complaining about people complaining :^)
