It’s funny, but I see many more people listing a game’s community as a bright side rather than a drawback. You would think it’d be both; communities are both good and bad, not one or the other, and a community can be a detriment to a game as much as a boon. But more often I see people say that game X has a great community than people admitting that, perhaps, the community in the game drives people away.
That’s not to say I never see it; people have frequently cited World of Warcraft’s community as a major mark against it. But today isn’t about asking you to evaluate your own game’s community, oh no. Today we’re asking you about your experience with other games. Has any MMO ever been ruined for you by the community? Has the community been so toxic and unwelcoming, either from the outside looking in or from your early experiences, that you left the game early on because you knew you weren’t going to be happy there?
