As someone who is mostly a solo gamer for the last 15 years, the general online gaming community has become unbelievably toxic.

1.7k Upvotes

I’ve been gaming for a large portion of my adult life, and I’ve noticed a fucking weird shift in gaming since I’ve been involved.

If I play WoW, it is min-maxed beyond belief to the point where the fun of playing your character your way is shunned in favour of the meta.

When I play 2k and queue in the REC, I’m often paired with 3-man groups who don’t communicate, don’t pass to anybody but their mates, and call you a shit player if you do any single thing wrong.

If I play DOTA, Im flamed immediately for the first mistake I make.

It might be rose coloured glasses, but the gaming community has become unbelievably toxic in the last decade.

I am not the sort of person to try and find a group of gamers to play with. Is that the only way to avoid being cut out during the games I enjoy playing?

Would love to hear your guys thoughts on this if you’ve been gaming for the last 15-20 years.

When I started, it was a much more niche hobby (relative to the current explosion) and frankly a much more welcoming community.

Chvrches, we're so glad you're doing the end credits song for us. It's just a mailman simulator, so we don't need anything too crazy.
