There are plenty of single player games out there. All this fussing is unnecessary.

Also, a lot of comments overly exaggerate the multiplayer's negative experience. I understand that there are a lot of douchebags out there but just because you've run into one of them doesn't mean that everyone who enjoys multiplayer games is going give you a world of grief.

Not caused by banks? So all those bank executives who were bundling up bad mortgages together and selling them as premium mortgages so that they could make made money off of bad investments had absolutely nothing to with it.

I'm going to just make a wild guess and say that you know nothing about what actually happened.

I think the summary nails it. Employers are mostly looking to exploit their "human resources" anyway they can to make a buck. That includes grinding your passion to a pulp why they reward themselves to the fruits of that hard labor. Everyone should stop pussyfooting around and just learn to not feel bad about calling spade spades.
