DirkTheDaring: ha-ha-guy: I'm a PC player or else I'd hook you up. If you're on CS:S check out clanfga. They have a nice open adult public server and keep it clean. I'll be on there. If you have a Steam tag I can hook you up with mine.

I don't play on PC very often... considering relocating my comp to the Potomac River... but I do have a Steam account. I might pick up CS:S tonight.

On Steam, I'm called Simple Mountain Folk


I'm mustilade gulo gulo. I'll flip you a friend request when I get time to actually boot it up and play.

Fark Me Runnin: I noticed that TFA was (correctly) very careful not to refer to either party as a "gamer."

Looks like subby and a lot of other farkers in this thread didn't read the part about how they were playing on PS3.

also, I'd like to add, I don't understand how people get bent out of shape about MP gaming in something like reach or COD. It's just a game, you're not really dead, and get this, in a moment you'll respawn and get to die again. I just play to have fun, because if you're not having any fun what's the point?

factoryconnection: ha-ha-guy: The secret to being an adult gamer is to play in a cooperative pack. The little OCD teens don't do teamwork well. Ignore the K/D, play to win, and you can win a lot of maps.

I may be missing out, but I was soured on online gaming immediately after I decided to try Delta Force III online. I was greeted by some f*cking middle schooler with infinite rounds of rapid-fire grenade launcher moving at helicopter speed around the map. Yeah, you won, kid, definitely because you're skilled and not because you cheated.

At least I didn't pay for that crap.


i dealt with similar crap playing HL2 Deathmatch and Counterstrike Source online. single player all the way, baby!

Really, Call of duty (especially on consoles what with the auto aim zoom snapping) is a game with a pretty low skillcap.
You can go from just beginning to near-pro level after owning the game for a week or two and playing it once every couple of nights.

Though you're right, playing smart - thinking about your next move and theirs, coordinating with teammates - is both far more entertaining and far more effective than just having twitch skills.

Ehhhh the only time I get frustrated is when I feel like I'm letting my team down. Like in Gears where you have a pool of 20 lives between 5 people and I'm at 1:10 ratio (basically taking half the lives myself). Besides that you really can't get pissed off about it, and if you do, just turn the damn thing off and walk outside.

This reminds me of the time someone called me a n***** playing yahoo hearts. Too bad he used his yahoo email for his work. I did a quick search, made some screenshots and emailed them and faxed them to everyone at his job whose info I could find online.

Also, I've found that the only times I've come close to or even actually just ragequit, were times when I knew that it pretty much was entirely my fault for losing in the first place.

Yeah, there's lag that can be unpredictable (predictable up-to 400ms lag in most games is something you can at least plan for and try to play around) and there's hacks in certain games, and there's times where luck actually did happen to factor in.

But for 99% of matches, it is probably your own fault - some mistake you made - that caused you to lose.

You don't need to play a lot to think a bit about it and try not to make the same mistakes.

Heck, I can't see how you could get mad over losing on the PS3. The controller handicaps you so much, even just compared to the 360 controller.

ya I agree with that, if I find myself getting annoyed I either switch games or go find something else to do, it's just a game.

Exactly. I play for MY fun, not yours... And if a "game" isn't fun, I stop playing it...

That's what happened with the last 2 I played. Got tired of the cheaters and scammers with the first one, and then the idiots who definately bought "skill" with the massive amount of actual money spent on digital items in the 2nd one...

assclowns like that kid are why I only use voice chat with friends and otherwise don't worry about it. Not that I play the wargames; if I were serious about those then yeah I'd probably wind up using it. if the kids are anything like my nephew, who gives me hell when we're playing side by side, then yeah, I'd want to smack them too...

You know, when you play games or sports in the real world, it isn't enjoyable when someone is cheating and being a dick about it either.

I'm assuming it turned into a "I'm not going to let this little prick get the better of me, I know I can beat him and shove it in his face" mentality, which made everything a hundred times worse when he lost.

Yeah, I'm not a big fan of the PS3 controller. The only reason I got it was because it's the best Blu-Ray player on the market.

also Metal Gear Solid 4.

If I want to give myself a sanity check, I'll play Demon's Souls

Dude... Khe Sanh* on Veteran mode is PISSING ME OFF

*the part where you have to kick the napalm barrels down the hill

Ahhhh yes the area where they give absolutely no indication besides an off hand comment that you're supposed to push a button at those barrels. It took me about 45 minutes of killing NON-STOP before I finally ran to a random spot and triggered one of the NPCs to light the barrel and kick it. Way too damn frustrating


How sad is it that I made it through that mission without knowing I needed to light off and kick any barrels? I just kept storming ahead until I got through it. Talk about a pain in the motherfarking ass.

I wish I could choke the little farkers, too. Not that I like to choke people, but I just hate people who try to get under your skin. It'd be nice to show them a consequence for them acting like assholes.

Unless there was some massive glitch lately, I don't think there's any real actual cheats.

Never understood what kind of satisfaction a person (even an immature one) could get from hacks. Kid comes in, kills everyone in less than 30 seconds, everyone bails from the server. Yay! ::eyeroll:: It's what drove me away from PC games and to the PS3. At least glitchers can only cheat on certain maps.

I can understand that philosophy for a time, but after the tenth loss (random number I picked, my win/lose ratio would be lower)..I'd just give it up. But then again, I won't let a snot nosed punk kid goat me into choking him out.

It doesn't affect my play or feelings. I don't even get mad. I would calmly choke them. Kind of like when they told parents that you shouldn't spank your kid while angry. It just disappoints me there are such dickwads out there.

Usually this doesn't happen in large enough numbers.
And the rage elicited is probably extremely...schadenfreudic.

If they got to 25 kills without a death, whether there was a nuke or not the hacker was going to win.

I think Poopflinger is talking about the auto-aim that's present in all almost all console games. The most egregious examples are when you're already shooting at an enemy, another one (usually closer) runs through your line of sight and all of the sudden your gun is pulled away and trailing the other guy. CoD was the worst about that.

The_EliteOne: This thread is filled with butthurt. In my high school and college years, I've probably killed thousands of "mature" gamers. And then virtually tea bagged your corpse for the lulz.

Wanna know why?

Because you ain't got no game, son.

You wanna beat me? Learn that hitting a shoulder with the sniper rifle does not count as a head shot - only a head shot with insta kill. Figure out precisley where, when and at what angle to toss that sticky grenade so it lands on your enemies fache'.

Pull yourself up by your own bootstraps, and get better. One way to do this is to get some friends who are, oh I don't know, actually good at games? Yeah, instead of taking your kids out to the park, try finding some people to run skirmishes with and for the type of god learn the damn maps. I'm tired of you old people running around with the pistol after you spawn because you don't know where the rocket launcher is.


Or, find out what a vagina looks like.

I just plug in my headset and leave it on the floor. It's too much trouble to keep muting people who think I really need to hear the crap music they're listening to, or their opinions about my skill level and/or supposed sexual orientation. I can count the number of times I heard actual, useful strategic information being shared on one hand and still have enough fingers left over to toss a concussion grenade. I assume it was because I landed on a team that was mostly members of the same clan.

50/50 COD was bad about it, but any game with it sucks, what's the point of playing if you're not really playing, just pushing a button, whack-a-mole is more of a challenge then playing a game with auto-aim

In CoD you can spam the ADS button and the ADS auto aim will center the reticule on the enemy and eliminate the recoil between shots. It's ludicrous.

I've never had much of a problem with such people on TF2. Probably because I play almost exclusively on a small community of paid servers. The $4/month fee is enough to keep out the riffraff. Its a big barrier for little kids to set up a paypal account, and if the quality of the service declines, I would take my money elsewhere so they do a pretty good job policing the servers.

The servers also seem to have a very high framerate and low latency compared to the free ones.

Who do you think you're talking to? This is The Elite One! E-L-I-T-E! He has no time for silly things such as vaginas, there is only time for COD, if anything else distracts him longer than a few minutes, he just may loose his Elite name.
