We all have things that annoy us in the gaming community, mine would people who value trophies/achievements more than the game it self, don't get me wrong i collect trophies in games i enjoy but i only do so as along as i'm having fun if a game stops being fun i won't force myself to carry on, no matter how many i have left

But when you go onto a website like PS3trophies.org or others and see comments on a game such as

''I was looking forward to this but the trophies look to hard so i'll give it a miss''

or this one about the new DMC game

''...and there better be some trophies for Vergil's DLC, if not its really not worth paying for it''

It really is pathetic that people will not play potentially great games because of a virtual reward that holds no real world value

Fanboys really don't bother me at all I think it's hilarious that people favour one console and dislike the competition so much.

Fanboys is a close second for me

the only reason it's not number one is because they are just such stupid people you can't take them seriously

When somebody (such as myself) who has every console and handheld is trying to tell someone who doesn't own a certain console something about it you just get shat upto, if you try to tell them about a great game like uncharted they find it terrible as they only own an xbox but i ask how they possibly have an opinion if they haven't played the game for an extended period of time, watching youtube videos does not give you an opinion

Similar with the 'it has a lack of games' argument, if i own the console and you don't and i'm telling you there isn't a lack of games, how can you argue that, you don't even own the console so you can have no idea what the games are like and therefore can't say there is a lack

My comment was quite tongue in cheek. I quite like fanboys actually, it's all part of videogame culture and friendly rivalries can be good fun, certainly better than those who rattle on about how important it is to be impartial to everything.

What I do dislike the most are the gamers who just take things to a whole new level of serious, they may fall into the fanboy category but I'm talking more about the types who are unwilling to accept another persons opinion without taking it to heart and getting upset leading to swearing and insults and suchlike. I've seen this type of behaviour lead to the downfall of whole communities before. There's just no reason to get so uptight over videogames and I'll never understand it.

Also more in line with the original post are haters, people who moan about everything and anything videogame related no matter how minor, it could be the price of games, DLC, adverts, online gaming, sequels, EA, COD, Peter Molyneux etc etc. The latest outburst over DMC is a good example, I played the demo and it's got some very nice gameplay and it's just the reboot the series needed imo. Fair enough if you don't think that but don't you think it's pathetic that people are unwilling to give the game a chance based on the character's haircut and appearance? The user score on metacritic is nothing short of embarrassing. Perhaps it's proof that children do in fact make up the majority of gamers today as I can't see anyone over the age of 20 caring about such trivialities.

After reading about 5 of the DMC user reviews i had to stop, its just stupid that people would lie like that

I'm not saying my opinion is the law and everyone should like it because i do but in no way is DmC a bad game like they are saying

Just because they hate something they are trying to ruin it for other people and that is unforgivable

Hopefully people are smart enough to ignore them

Girl gamers...since I am one. They feel they need to shout about it and prove themselves or be overly sexy

When other gamers dislike a game i love, or love a game i hate! Always gets me, but i keep it to myself as its quite irrational on my part.

"Hardcore" gamers..

This gen, the term "hardcore" has become distorted beyond all meaning, and now it seems to refer to the 14 year olds that only play games like CoD and think that it somehow makes them more mature and less "kiddy" than those people that play Mario.

moaners that think they are owed great games, then when one comes along they still find something to maon about.

Also gamers that dont apprecieate the tech and realise how far games have come. yeah sometimes visuals come before gameplay but when the balance is right there are some truly amazing experiences in gaming. many take that for granted.

I hate when a new game comes out and I eventually manage to afford it. Then, just as i get it, everyone gets rid of it and moves on to the next thing......and so the circle goes. For this I'm more looking at games with solo campaigns or multiplayers where randoms dont matter so much.

People who slate a game, but buy the next instalment on preorder, despite being burned the last 3 or 4 times. I just don't get it. Multiple examples, FIFA, WWE, Final Fantasy etc. They will just keep churning out generic shit unless you stop buying it.

Nintendo fanboys (love you 2D)

Seriously though, whiners.

Wah, wah, this game isn't technically perfect and at one point dropped below a frame-rate my eyes can barely detect.

Wah, wah, this game wasn't written the way I wanted it, even though the way I wanted it would have been a load of third-rate fanwank.

Wah, wah, this new console isn't priced at EXACTLY the price I expected/wanted it to be.

SHUT UP AND ENJOY WHAT YOU'VE GOT YOU SPOILT BRAT!

I think the term 'hardcore' gamer, pretty much sums up anyone who has a PS3 or Xbox, but if they have a Wii or Wii U, then they're classed as a casual gamer. You lose credibility for liking Nintendo - might I add, the video game company that has drastically changed the gaming industry.

Negativity...

Reading gaming sties and forums these days it seems everything sucks and is a flop, it seems like everyone is desperate to be the first to slag something off or declare it a failure.

3DS was a flops because of low initial sales then Vita came along and 3DS sale were used to show how it was a flop. Wii U launched and didn't outsell well established consoles like PS3 and 360 so was a failure. All of the above were criticised for having poor launch software line up and not enough games been released for them which is actually the case with almost all consoles released. Any game that doesn't sell a million copies in 1day is a failure.

Frankly it becomes tiresome and resulted in me visiting less gaming sites.

People that don't realise that sony is the best and that no other console is worth looking at!!!

I'm joking of course. No what annoys me is my girlfriends internet connection because I keep getting kicked out of games because her net disconnects. But thats more of a personal hate going than what everyone might have.
