The top 5 worst gaming communities

1 of 6

"What the f*ck are you doing?"

"Idiot noob"

"Useless team wtf are you doing? I'm the only one doing sh*t."

These are the kinds of remarks you hear when playing certain video games. Even though there are plenty of good, kind-hearted gaming communities out there (I'm looking at you Dark Souls and Elder Scrolls), there also several toxic ones as well. 

I am going to go through five of the worst communities I have had first hand experience with. Let me know if you agree or disagree with my thoughts in the comments below!

    It looks like me and Jay had the exact same reasons for quitting League, Time and the Community. Even as someone who now plays World of Warcraft, League of Legends just sucks up so much time and the community is like WoW's Trade Chat.

    Speaking of that, could we give an honorable mention to World of Warcraft's Trade Chat? Just all of it, across all servers?

    Nice article, you provided good points for each of your choices and elaborated on them clearly.

    I'm surprised the LoL community didn't make it here. Thought that was the one doing the rounds as the worst out there.

    As much as I love World of Tanks the people who play never cease to piss me off. The vast majority of the players are good people but they are often overshadowed by the idiots and jerks. This shows in how people use the voice chats (I play on XBox). Some people are helpful and constructive. They try to direct the team and provide info. But nine times out of ten the person on the mic is some idiot who believes that he is an all-important general that all must listen to. All he does is rage and yell at people (usually arties) and claims that everyone is useless. Or he just trash talks. Either way, WoT is in desperate need of a "mute all" selection. Muting each person is far too tedious as it is.

    Speaking of "mute all". CoD. Always. Mute all.

    Nice list. There are definitely games I stay away from because of the community. I think I have less patience for toxic chat because I'm an old fart, and there are many options out there where I don't have to deal with a**hats while I'm trying to enjoy myself.

    Last summer, Blizz gave me a free week (or two) of WoW to try and get me to come back. After 10 min of playing, I had seen so many comments I'm sure these folks wouldn't say in front of their mother that I logged out and uninstalled. There are better places I can spend my time.

    Would love to see a list of great player communities.
