    I was never into trash-talking myself, but I *always* took the personal messaging other players sent as a badge of honor. And the bigger the outburst they sent, the better. Because it meant I must have wrecked them so bad they had to pack their shit up and move to tilted town. Man, watching this video got me thinking how much I miss seeing that (new message) notification on xbox lol.

      Yes no wonder we feel nostalgia to 2010 like, when back then you were free to show your emotions and thought with screaming in the mic how much you hate that player, so no wonder they were more enjoyabel and happy times compared to nowdays, when you cant have fun in videogames, because people who do not even play videogames say so.

      @Andy Copeland If you think about it, the act of having to mute your microphone during a game as the only sane solution to avoiding toxicity really says a lot about how society works: you might as well mute and censor everyone to avoid all communication for even the slightest potential of someone being a jerk. And that would be ridiculous, of course. There are personal limits to what people can tolerate, but eliminating all words solves nothing and creates a whole new problem, which is why I don’t respect cancel culture.

    Man, it really hurts when you take a second to think about how anti-social *multiplayer* gaming has gotten due to the threat of offending people. Rarely ever are people on mic anymore, whereas back in the golden days of the 360/PS3 era of gaming, everyone had a mic and multiplayer games were all about being social. Companies should at minimum put a setting you can opt in to, where the chat is basically unmoderated besides direct threats of violence. Halo and CoD lobbies were things of beauty, not to mention so many games had proximity chat too where you could trash talk the enemy team.

    I just wish people had the self awareness to recognise that when someone is ugly trash talking you, they’re the ones embarrassing themselves.
    Even a few of the ‘good’ clips in this video faltered because you could see the guy leaning in on the insult too hard, giving away that they have a stake in your reaction, which is a foolish investment.
    The creative lines are the peak because they take wit, which takes the presence of mind that *proves* you beat the opponent with only half your brain power, the rest being busy crafting the insult at the end.

    It’s incredibly silly that games now are so afraid to let players communicate when all they need is an easy to access mute & block feature and maybe a report option for actual threats. Don’t like that someone is yelling at you? Press a button and you never have to hear them again. This was figured out years ago.
    These are strangers on a video game on the internet. What they say doesn’t matter.

      @Prophein X Dude you HAVE to have it for legitimate threats. Legitimate threats are rare, but they do happen. The best compromise is to have a function to report on the developer's website, and make it a pain of a process. It is going to be abused less if it takes effort, whereas a legitimate threat, a person will be shaken enough to go through said effort.
      A legitimate threat is one where they actually use personal info about you they shouldn't know, or spout off your phone number or address. At that point, you are dealing with a serious situation, and you should obviously call the police. Again, it is exceedingly rare, but it has happened before.

    • Robert Sharp

      it kinda ruins an experience when you have to "mute" every single player. Also if you mute everyone then the talking which should be used for communication makes you worse at the game because the trash talking troglodytes are working together. So if you refuse to want to hear, you are not apart of the team. you see the issue?

    Lol this is actually hilarious. I got a psn week suspension for replying to someone hatemailing me after a game, he got salty and reported me. Toxicity is a part of competition, or everything would be casual and we can all be friends. Ppl cheer for a hockey fight or pay to watch pre-fight interviews for ufc fights and love the trash talk but once it’s directed at them they run to the report button and cry for a ban. Some of my best friends were made through trash talking, just not the same now.

    I've always operated under the idea that the best trash talk has a small element of self depreciation and satire to it. Like you know how stupid it is to talk trash because we're all just playing a game, but you're doing it anyways because there's a visceral satisfaction to it and you fully expect them to do it in return.
    The perfect example would be donsley saying "not even close baby" when he and everyone else knows damn well that they play in question was in fact very very close.

    The best burn I ever heard came from a gaming party with me and a bunch of my friends. I think we were playing a Smash tournament. Anyway, one guy gets absolutely smoked in a 1v1, and the winner just started going off. After about 3 minutes of victory gloating, the loser looks him dead in the eye and says in a stone cold voice, "Know what? I don't gotta take shit from a guy who's chin count is higher than his GPA."
    He may have lost the tournament, but he won the encounter.

    Personally I've always liked Michael Jordan's response to trash talk where he'd just point at the scoreboard. It ties into that philosophy of "speak softly and carry a big stick".
    I'm not saying people shouldn't trash talk but when I hear it I can't help but wonder what are the odds the everyone would be just as boisterous if they were in throat punching range, or would just a few of them get real polite, real fast? I'm just saying that nobody ever came up to me on the street and told me to my face to fuck a syphilitic donkey, and knowing that makes it hard for me to get into the smack talk. Plus I'm just not very creative, call it a character flaw.
    One thing that I disagree with The Act Man on is the person that quit after being called a racial slur, I get where he's going that bullying shouldn't work in driving someone away, but at the same time no one is obligated to give a bully, or a game, or a community their time, nor is anyone obligated to correct someone else's shitty behavior.

    7:28 is definitely my personality 90% of the time. And nothing ticks me off more than toxic teammates in competitive games. But I still would prefer communication and friendly banter to be available, even if that means someone that banter will turn toxic. Just give players a mute option so that it’s up to them what they get to hear and what they play.

      I’m not familiar with the incident, but I’d say it’s rather that it’s a very different scenario when a company independently chooses to disassociate from you because of the organic bad pr you generate, as opposed to activist cancel culture where you manufacture fake negative pr.
      If you have a bad employee who doesn’t respect that they carry your brand in whatever small way, then they simply are making a liability out of themselves.
      It’s not anti-free speech, it’s actually just pro freedom of association.
      Like I said though, not familiar with this particular incident, might be barking up the wrong tree

      @DamascoGamer As the guy with the lowest voice in every lobby. This is false. In fact, being a human subwoofer with a freakishly deep voice, anytime I heard someone making fun of some kid for sounding like a girl I would always use it as an opportunity to chime in and say something like "I don't know, you both kinda sound like girls to me." Good times.

    Actman, I'm a long time viewer of your content, and I love watching your videos, especially your reviews on poo-poo dookie games to master pieces of video gaming! I recently played a game that had me completely a-astonished by the quality of the story and design. Prey is its name. I really loved the game and its player choice and the weights of your action across the playground that your dropped in; therefore, I would love to see a review of this wonderful game and see your take on it.

      Those were the best days tho right, either you get an hour of shit talking & entertainment then go your separate ways. Or you end up finding something in common to chat about and party up by literally pressing a single button. “X” then at the very least you get a night of banter with good gameplay and at the best you get some new online friends. The only way you seem to meet new people is in discord or the xbox looking for group posts. Meeting in match making nowadays is just dead

    You know, teabagging in games would be a lot more accepting if they just called it by what it is; Taunting.
    The only reason why it's even called that is because the term was adopted in a time where casually threatening to violate someone or make bomb/shooting threats hardly raised an eyebrow.
    Lets not forget that one of the Valorent players who was suspended for voicing her opinion of the ban, Dawn, has claimed to have seen actual S.A. happen in front of her and (along with the opinion of victims I've talked to) thinks that the comparison is stupid.

    I’ve found that being prohibited from expressing negative emotion in a game actually makes me more angry than I would be if I got it out. Magic Arena only has preselected phrases and all of them are kind and positive. “Thanks!” Just doesn’t cut it when someone is playing like an Ass hole. That’s what happens when corporations worship gays and women.

    I think the saddest and most maddening thing out of this is that these devs and companies arent really trying to safeguard the mental health of their playerbase. They only care about their bottom line. Thats why theres so many over reactions. They actively know twitter will put them on a pedestal every single time they double down on cracking down on “negative or problematic behavior” and they see that as free advertisement. They actively seek any type of controversy and even create new ones just so they can “crack down” on it. They dont care about banning players because they believe the positive press will gain them more. Even playing a fucking video game will make you a tool to be used by a shitty developer

    Great video with a balanced perspective.
    I get that nobody wants to hear lazy slurs thrown around all day, but disallowing people from using them is only giving them more validity. I know this point is overused to fuck, but it's true goddammit. The reason the N word is considered such an edgy, ballsy word to use is because of all the gasping reactions it gets. And if you try to silence somebody for being this-ist or that-ist, I hope you realize that isn't going to make them recognize the stupidity of their beliefs. In fact they'll only get stronger. I feel like the social aspect of gaming would be so much better if it wasn't tailored to the people so uncommitted in the first place that they can't handle mean words from an online sperg. Those people need to grow some fucking hair on their tits (lul), and so do these game devs who are constantly trying to 1-up each other in "inclusivity". The only inclusion we need is a lack of exclusion, and trash talk is sadly excluded in most modern games. Overly sensitive people had a way to play their way in the "toxic MW2 days". It was called the mute button. For fucks sake. So really, these people quitting over mean words don't just care about themselves not having to deal with trash talk, they just want it gone all together. They don't want people who actually do enjoy it to have a place, and that is exclusion.
