Looking at Other’s Perspectives on Elitism in Games

It’s interesting to see the amount of people and game sites that are noticing the growing numbers of Elitist gamers within different multiplayer and online games. some such as the writer in the link below believe that is incredibly damaging to games as it causes new players to turn away, and in some cases say bad and negative things about the game and the people that play it.

And the points the writer makes are fairly valid as well, as Online games such as Warcraft and Final Fantasy rely on the constant intake of new players to fuel the servers and spread the word, if bullying by elite gamers ruins their experience then not only will they stop playing and paying, but could sread the word that it has an awful community making others not want to try it.
