I have an honest question
So, I can't be the only one in this community who notices this, and this isn't the only community where this happens (I've seen it in Vindictus and Maplestory for starters with Nexon games alone, but it of course exists in other places as well), but...
Basically, why are many of the players of the game incredibly mocking to those who are considered "lore" or "storyline" fans in MMOs? (I separated them because some categorize the lore of a story different from the story itself, and some see them as one thing)
Like, this isn't the first time I've seen a spat between people who feel that something is "nothing to be upset about" and people explain why it's upsetting for them only for someone to say "WELL ITS NOT ACTUALLY UPSETTING YOU'RE JUST BEING A CHILD" especially when it's about things related to the NPCs in a game. I've seen it plenty times, and to be honest, it's kind of saddening. Does it bother people that others may find things related to the NPCs of a game important? Does it bother people that others particularly enjoy other activities in the game? What I can't really understand is why this topic always turns into some sort of spat because someone has to feel the need to mock people for this.
So yeah, why does it happen? What causes people to feel this way towards people liking NPCs?
