Thank you Syncaine for showing us the response of the Darkfall community to the Eurogamer review.
I can understand how a niche game like Darkfall generates such strong feeling among its fans. It's very isolation instils a kind of "us versus them" solidarity.
I am a big carebear myself and I will almost certainly never play Darkfall but I am happy to let those who like that sort of thing get on with it.
What I cannot understand is why Darkfall and those who play the game seem to have generated such strong levels of antipathy among people who have never played it and who admit to not liking that sort of game anyway.
So I am asking why?
You know who you are. You never intended to play Darkfall in the first place yet you have been busily writing blog and forum posts bad-mouthing the game and its players. Depending on your style these swipes have ranged from cleverly snide to downright vitriolic. Why?
