So I was playing PlayStation All-Stars today with a PSN friend... He invited me to his game and there were 2 other guys as well. They all had mics except for me (mine wasn't working for whatever reason).
Anyway a few games passed and they were complimenting each other, but continually talking crap about me more and more. It got to the point where the 2 of them were constantly insulting me calling me names for no reason. I didn't get butt hurt but it was definitely irritating. I do 'smack talk' all the time but in a friendly manner, not in a way that's straight up bullying.
I won with 13 kills on the last match and finally quit after so much of it. They were mocking my player saying 'ooooh he's using 2 hit combos!'... Well guess what, all Sackboy can do is 2 and 3 hit combos. And no, I didn't spam projectiles the whole time.
So why do some people enjoy ganging up on one player and bash them? Are you one of those players?
I know that some people like to play video games after a long or bad day, so I try to be laid back when playing online. It just seems to ruin the game for others.
