Just like it has done with all other forms of entertainment, the internet has given angry gamers a platform to complain. The more time you spend online the more you see people bitching. So I guess the question is this: were people just as unhappy about games 10 years ago and we didn't hear them, or have gamers become more critical as they spend more time talking to strangers about games?
