Hi, my name is Skid Row Trash. I have been gaming and creating add-ons and mods for games since I was 11. I'm 30 now, and I still love gaming. My first gaming system was a NES, followed by a Sega Genesis. After that, I got the Sega CD. I think I am one of the few that actually enjoyed the hell out of that system. I had to replace my Sega Genesis once because of problems, and had to replace my Sega CD 3 times, and repair it once. My first computer ever was a 386 with a huge 40mb hard drive, dos, and eventually windows. Started out playing games like wolfenstein 3D, Doom, Commander Keen, Blake Stone, and the list really is endless.. Civ 1..
After this I got a SNES. What a fun system. This was soon after followed by a Nintendo 64, and eventually a PS1 and Gamecube. I had to exchange my PS1 once because it broke. After that I had a PS2, and an Xbox. I loved both those systems so much. I had to replace my PS2 3 times, and my Xbox 3 times due to hardware problems.
These days, I am gaming on Xbox 360, and PC. I don't bother with PS anymore because I have large hands and their analog sticks are way too close. I find both thumbs fighting each when trying to play anything on a playstation these days and much prefer the improved analog stick setup that Xbox 360 has.
I am currently on my 6th Xbox 360, and have Kinect as well.
My first one died from disc tray problems.
My second one I had Nyko Intercooler which actually melted into my xbox 360 and the 2 seperate things became 1 single entity.
My 3rd Xbox was a red ring of death
my 4th Xbox eventually wouldn't even turn on.
my 5th xbox still sorta works, but the disk tray takes like 40 tries to open and takes more and more time each attempt. Also when the door is closed it things the door is open, and thus I can't launch any games.
my 6th Xbox 360 was to replace my last one, but at the same time I wanted to have the most recent so I got a kinect package. Also, this is the first time I have had the ability to use HDMI with my Xbox 360, because all 5 xboxes I had before they kept sending me old units with only Component video.
anyways, I am a real big time gamer and like to try all games (except for sports because well.. sports are weak).
GTA Online has finally pissed me off. I had put up with it's shit for so long and lost many levels and thousands of dollars, but I kept with it. Suddenly though yesterday I got hit with what many others have had happen.
I'm an now a "Bad Sport".
It happened while I was just messing around robbing stores and escaping cops. I did my usual 2 star escape, head to the hills. It was ok, I escape the fuzz, but while I was out there someone had shown up nearby. This was a high level player with really good weapons, and he started kicking my ass all over the place. I probably died about 4 times before I turned on passive mode. I was out in the hills after all, had no way to escape and he has a high powered sniper rifle.
So I have passive mode on and thought I should bank my money. I go to the internet, and am about to bank my cash when I am suddenly pulled out of the internet because my body is flying through the air. This jerkoff came at me with his fancy car and crumpled me with it while on passive (Yeah, while on passive you can be run over).
So he keeps running me over, about 3 or 4 more times and I finally make it into my menu with enough time to turn off passive. I evaded this guy with a roll as he came at me again, and luckily I had landed a sticky bomb on his ride. I blew this guy up and his expensive ass car.
You cannot play the game with most others now, because you are a bad mean player it says to me.
My guy is now stuck wearing a dunce cap to remind me that I am an idiot for not just sitting there and dying until I don't have a penny left in the bank. It is as if to say "you're an idiot, if you want to play the game properly then you should love to be spam killed, even when on passive, fool!".
How stupid of me, defending myself like a vile scumbag.
Oh yeah, I also had to spend 10K instantly to repair his vehicle so he can run over more players on passive mode.
Imagine if other games did this. Say Call of Duty. You see a guy running at you shooting you, you shoot him back. You are then told you are a bad player and put into a server full of other "bad players" and actual cheaters and hackers..
