[A recent experience that the normally cheerful Wry Guy had playing online games prompted him to write this article on some problems he sees in the gaming community at large.

For the most part I've had a really pleasant experience with Black Ops. When I played with my friends. When we were in a party on XBox Live. When we couldn't hear anybody else talk. For me nearly any online game becomes unbearable when you add random people. That night with Funktastic we played Hardcore, which in certain modes will not allow private chat. We met some incredible jackasses who did not understand the meaning of the word fun. I was actually screamed at for not being good enough at the game... by someone on the other team. Think about how pathetic that is.
