Hi everyone. I haven't posted anything on here for a bit, but tonight gave me something to post about. Due to my extreme anger issues I decided to cut out online gaming entire except for a game called warframe. This is because I felt like the player vs player games were inciting my anger too much and ramping up my anxiety. Warframe is a free to play player vs environment game so it's generally less pressure and people on your squad either just play and stay quiet or say something simple like "what mission do you want to do next?" Well that was not the case today. I was doing a mission in this game I'd never done and the game may pair you randomly in the beginning or even mid game. For those who don't know this game can be notoriously cryptic and is often very difficult to figure out. Well I was trying to figure out how to complete the objective for a particular mission and the one person on my squad sent a squad mission sending "wtf are you even doing." Seriously? I just don't understand why everyone has to be an internet warrior and such a jerk while playing games. I've now decided to literally not play any online game at all even player vs environment games unless it is with friends because it is ruining my mental health. It really sucks because the gameplay of warframe is really cool and I enjoy it, but I just can't deal with this unbearable toxic gaming community for literally every single game in existence that can be played online. I'm partly venting, but also it frustrates me that I now have to limit my range of fun just because people have to be extremely mean. How do you deal with this if you're a gamer? Thanks.
