Really hurts what I read here, the hate for challenge etc. All blaming it on the game instead of their own shortcomings. While I agree the stats don't work in favor, fact that you can brute force your way to victory using stats is half the battle. Yet they still blame the game for their mistakes. Shame. Shame. Shame.

No surprise. This is the generation we live in, with games that play themselves and never leave the tutorial.

There's so many that share this view now, including scum reviewers who propagate this bullshit to the point where they control a game's success or failure as sure as if they owned it themselves.

As soon as you try to explain or teach these types anything, they turn like rabid dogs and attack. That's how insecure they are over a game.

I feel totally done. I'll still do my own stuff but I'm not going to bother countering anything anymore. Every time we post we just bump a topic for all to see.

It was nice to read your comments there Roy, to see an actual counter argument. That one guy said some stuff about masamune but he seemed pretty fair from your vids against him. Imagine if they fought azel, WTF I CANT SPAM PUNCH PUNCH GUARD BREAK CUS HE JUKES N JIVES B******T.

I'm gonna stick to this forum, it's the only forum I've ever used actually I'm not into social stuff.

But birdman I love it when you hard counter me, it's nice to be challenged, and my comments about EW grabs shows I can be whiny too haha, I'm not like that typically honest.

Maybe, but I mean more when I see a game being trashed by trolls and countering them with fact. Waste of time and they never respond with anything other than more insults to protect those fragile egos.

Also, maybe I just have a higher tolerance for difficult/annoying stuff in games. I've always blamed myself for my failures in games and have always overcome them.

That doesn't mean I've never come across stuff I could truly call crap, like Project Altered Beast.

> i feel totally done
I'm getting this feeling more and more myself. The sanctity of this place is a lot better than the constant discussions and hate-threads I keep finding myself in.

It's funny you should mention God Hand Gabriel, as me and some friends were talking over Facebook just how it would go if these players would pick up games like God Hand or Ninja Gaiden 2...it would be a slaughter. There was a video way back of a player being horrible at NG2 but I can't find it, he was raging at Genshin in Chapter 2 and it was clear he was just mashing light attack and Genshin just cut him to pieces. That's exactly what would happen. Of course he blamed the game.


Have to say Reddit fared a bit better, made a topic on stats & skill, and the balance of it. Pretty good replies all round.

EDIT: it really got out of hand in another topic, so I decided to quit going there. I'll rather just do my thing here haha.
