Why do people have to be so hateful? When I am on Xbox I experience this a lot, especially between US and UK kids. It doesn't start with the British kids as some would suspect, it starts with the Americans. Ever since my friend from school, Jess, left Xbox because of account malfunctions, I have been hanging out with some British kids. Surprisingly, they don't even think of me as an American anymore! I guess this is good because they don't like America that much.
When you get into one of the 'hate' lobbies there is a lot of cussing and screaming, usually nothing good comes out of it. So, you can guess how it feels to be an American yelling at your fellow countrymen to defend your friends. Recently, I just started to ignore the other people in the lobby so I wouldn't have to hear everything said. This isn't the only form of hostility shown, usually everyone hates on the little kids because they just want to talk smack about how good they are, or were, until we just murder them on the game. Then they just start again and they start yelling about how it was a fluke with them going 0-20. Then the yelling starts again.
I'm not saying I haven't done this, I'm not perfect. This is something I definitely don't approve of and would like to see it stop. As a teenager, I just wonder why something like on line gaming has become such a place of hostility. When something has been invented to give us the opportunity to game with people all over the world, don't you think everyone should try to get along just a little better? Would really like your opinion here.
