Insulting modern games is fine, insulting one of those classic games in the past however IS A CRIME. If you don't like games such as Morrowind, then according to fanbases, you're nothing more then a stupid, Call of Duty loving, casual gamer who picks his nose and scratches his rear.8bitOwl said:sumanoskae said:[
Well, once it was generally accepted that Skyrim was the greatest thing since 69ing, we didn't feel the need to repeat ourselves. Then, a bunch of people who didn't think Skyrim was the greatest thing since 69ing went "Hey, my opinion is not being represented" and spoke up.
This happens because people don't feel the need to express their opinion unless it's being challenged.
I would say it's the other way around - I recall having been insulted on another forum because I said I didn't understand why GTA5 got so much hype.
You're just socially not allowed to say you don't like something very popular, until one or two years after the crazy hype train passed.
It's still a much more complex phenomenon than this, though. As I mentioned, we need a social psychologist or something to find out.
I do believe that Skyrim is getting sort of an anti-hype now. Probably because they feel they can voice their opinion now that the hype has died down and also because the hype has died down, you're noticing the more negative opinions about Skyrim.
Personally I love Skyrim, but I do understand the flaws the game has and why some people may dislike it. Of course people tend to accentuate the negative and act as if Skyrim is the worse RPG game ever made and it's the game that completely DESTROYED the TES franchise. Those people are just exaggerating.
