Gamer Etiquette- To Taunt or Not to Taunt?

After today’s Street Fighter IV session a question came to mind stemming from an incident that will go un-printed.

Is it okay to taunt while playing online?

Are you a trash talker or do you let your game speak for itself?

How do you feel when someone’s roasting you?

Have you ever gotten into a heated argument online due to excessive jawing?

Leave a reply and lets see how you online gamers feel.

  2. Depends the game, back on the original xbox on Halo 2, we’d taunt, and regular argue with opponents, but then everyone did. It was rare to get into a game that didn’t involve trash talking. Now I’m older I don’t, but we still talk trash between my friends when we’re on skype together.

  3. I rarely ever even play online because most people are so obnoxious. 😦

    • What type of question is that? Taunt or not to taunt! But of course you should taunt, talk big trash, rube their faces in it, RAIN ON THEIR PARADE!!! There’s no better feeling.

      • haha; depending on the day I can be a real scoundrel online. But always clean and in good fun, if we piss off the other player’s we’ll be stuck in story-mode purgatory!

  4. HUGE difference depending on the game you play. When I’m playing Call of Duty = taunting is profound, expected, and highly volatile. When I turn on SFIV it’s a breath of fresh air. I rarely see any taunting when I play online. Hell, I even get messages from people I’ve played saying how they enjoyed the battle. It’s kinda… nice.

    But with that said, when I get six battles in a row fighting against Ryu I start to get a little annoyed. PICK SOMEONE ELSE. Please.
