Reader Discussion: What Community Issues Make You Leave A Game?

by Matt Miller on Jan 08, 2014 at 12:22 PM

Earlier today, we asked you about your favorite online gaming communities over the years. But what about the ones that aren’t so great?

Have you ever liked a game, but eventually stopped playing because of a toxic social community in-game? What issues are the most problematic for you – griefing, cheating players, unfriendliness to new players, abusive voice chat or shouting (like our friend, the Ultimate Warrior, above), or something else?

Tell us your stories about gaming communities that drove you away, and why, in the comments below.
