Social activity on Xbox Live

We all know it and participate in the social experience of Xbox Live. You and I have seen the extremes people go to, in order to win a trash talking conversation. It's quite sad how we let it happen also. These events only happen because people are protected by a TV and a internet connection. From these subhuman conversations we can see exactly why worldwide standards have lowered. Grown men harassing young kids, blatant racism for no reason, and the crudest language. Then there is the aspect when there is a female gamer. The words that are thrown their way would more thank likely get someone put into a hospital. The lack of respect over the internet shows a sad side of our culture where we praise the internet for everything it has done to advance us. But there is the rare friendly side, where you actually enjoy your experience with these strangers. I have made some good friends through Xbox and I know a lot of people who have made some also. It just astonishes me that I can actually pick through all the immature ignoramuses and find someone who is actually worthwhile to hang out with.

  3. i play reach and mw2 all the time and have to mute everyone because its all n-bombs and little kids saying stuff I'm sure they don't understand. i am no prude and will burst out with a random expletive but its always spur of the moment. also, when i do yell at someone it only because they are using exploits.

  4. Its really sad how many little kids with foul language are playing computer games. If my kid'd do such stuff and I'd find out, that'd be the end of his XBOX of PS or whatever he uses.

  5. I have to mute about 50% of people on Xbox live, and I just turn sound off if my girlfriend is around.

  10. A lot of it has to do with the game as well!
    Games like Halo and Call of Duty that dominate the Xbox Live community, are usually filled with these types of people.
    The smaller, less played games, or ones with a much bigger focus on strategy typically have people more willing to play.
    Hell, Team Slayer vs. CTF or Assault in Halo. Objectives bring out the better people online.
