What infuriates me in online gaming.

Having been an avid PC gamer and to a lesser extent console gaming there are a few things that really annoy me when playing against other people. In all games you will come across the cheats, people who use exploits in games, or install game hacks. This to me is just now more of an inconvenience rather than an annoyance as I know at some point they will be be caught and what usually happens is their game account will be barred or restricted.

However there are a couple of things that really do annoy me greatly.

Quitting the game:

The main thing to me that ruins some online game experiences is your opponent losing and just before the game finishes they disconnect – leaving you with no reward for beating them. This happens alot in FIFA (on all game versions) and the winner gets no points bonus for beating someone. FIFA is a gameĀ I enjoy playing, and thought I would have a few online games last night. I played one particular person and was winning 4-0 at half time, they continued into the second half where I scored another and they then proceeded to disconnect with me getting the message saying the connection has been lost. What a waste of time these games are, developers need to encode something into things like this that penalises anyone that quits a game – even if it is something along the lines of their ISP having a blip. Why should genuine players have to deal with people who know how to beat a flaw in the game???

Game Speak

As a mature gamer I like to think that people of a similar age know how to speak in a civil manner, but alot of the time all you hear is slang words like “Noob”, “haxor”, “leet”. You can understand this to an extent from teenagers, but from adults it just sounds daft. When I first started playing online games when broadband was not available in alot of areas players all used to praise a good kill on an FPS game, or comment on a good goal in a football simulation, all you hear now is “You used an exploit” , “Your hacking” or “There is no way you could see me from there let alone shoot me.”

If you go onto most online FPS servers now you will probably hear at least once someone being accused of cheating. Long gone are the days when people realised that some people are actually better skilled at games!

Anyway what annoys you about online gaming?
