No, never. NEVER! OK, maybe occasionally to piss off a "friend" at the workplace. But in general, if I don't like a game, it is not worth talking about that much, unless it is being compared to my favourite games.

Same here. For games I like in general, I will complain about some aspect that is lacking. Unless it is SOE, often enough people agree with me and the game is changed/updated to what we want.

I do NOT complain about games I played but thought nothing could fix them. Plausibly, there are games that just aren't suited to my wants.

In a nutshell, it is all constructive criticism.

The only time I complain about a game I don't play is when that game comes into my house, eats all my Lucky Charms, and then changes the channel on my TV to something I don't want to watch. I hate it when games I don't play will do that!
Other than that, I think that complaining about a video game you don't play is about the least constructive thing a person could do. If you stand on one foot in the middle of a rain storm singing Lady GaGa songs out of key, THAT would be more constructive than complaining about a video game you don't play, because at least you're getting some exercise.

I complain about games I played, and then found they are absolutly nothing like advertised.

Or games I played and enjoyed, and then the developers though it was a good idea feeding them to the dogs with the next patch/xpac.

@Fabius Bile One thing I find really annoying about pretty much every MMO that isn't WoW is the amount of anti-WoW ranting that goes on in them. I can't log into LotRO, City of Heroes, or RIFT without seeing a chat channel spilling over with people complaining about the horrific prospect that ex-WoW players (often called "WoWtards" or "WoW babies") might be switching to their game.

"I played WoW for four years," one of the complainers inevitably states. "It was total garbage. I'm so glad I switched over to this game. But now I hear the devs are making the game less hardcore and less grindy. Soon we'll be flooded with WoWtards. Ugh."

I don't understand the logic.

People don't complain about WoW-players as much anymore. They've diverted their hate to the F2Pers and Farmville kiddies.

I can complain about whatever I want, to whomever I want, whenever I want. If I would play a game if they only implemented "factor X", then I will complain.

@Tizmah : Apparently the "adult world" is one of those games you have yet to play, because the squeaky wheel always gets the grease.

In my work place, the squeaky wheel is removed and replaced with one that works.

Haha. Amen. Although I don't downrate his comment because I believe he has a right to free speech... But he also has the right to be detested by everyone around him and to spend the rest of his life with tears streaming down his face as he stamps his feet! ;D

Ironically, you're calling him immature and you don't even know him.

What strikes me as odd is that clearly the vast majority of opinions differ from my own. Which is fine, I live in a democracy and I'm willing to live under the opinions of the majority. However I do find it striking that those who hold the opinion I should not complain about games, are those willing to insult others for comments on forums.

That is all, Cupcake out.

This is the internet, opinions are like a-holes, everyone has one and everyone thinks they are right.

@FrostPaw Haha =) Well yeah perhaps the majority.

Answering the question that was presented: Nope I don't complains about games I don't play and I don't complain about ones that I have played in the past. I'm happy just to get on with it and if others enjoy their time in that play-land so be it =)
