    I read this ages ago and I just said, it's more realistic that way because if a virus like that every hit the world and spread, then how is it racist, it's a game anyway, it's not real

    I never understood people calling Resident Evil 5 racist. It was in Africa, why wouldn't there be black people there? Plus they weren't even really human anymore.

    My own personal outrage came after the debacle that was the console release of Street Fighter x Tekken. I was so hyped for it when it was first announced, even after losing a bit of faith in Capcom after so many new editions of Street Fighter IV. Even after that, I should have seen it coming after the handheld versions of Marvel v Capcom 3 had loads of extra characters (all I wanted was Jill Valentine, dammit!). But when the day came for SFXT and I loaded it up and saw just how many options were locked with a "Coming soon via DLC!" message while the actual release was so stripped down and at full price no less, I flipped my shit. I tried to play it but I resented Capcom too much by that point and couldn't enjoy the game. I have never bought a Capcom game, nor any Capcom DLC (add ons or full titles) ever since. No matter how much I wanted to play Resident Evil 6. Fuck you Capcom, you greedy bastards.

    To be fair, the Resi 5 slide should not be in this list because it wasn't a fan outrage at all. It was a bunch of media hoobla. Basically the essence of why mainstream media still does not accept gaming.

    FACT: Unless you're burning a cross on someone's lawn white people don't think ANYTHING is racist.

    Yeah, those white people, they're all the same. Thanks for sharing that "FACT:"

    It was only racist because of the player to be honest. Europe got attacked first, and it makes sense that the areas of the world more vulnerable to viruses would get hit if you think about it, like deep Europe or deep Africa. The racism was gamers saying "kill that black person" instead of "kill that zombie". The problem was with the players calling them "blacks" instead of "zombies". (Even though they aren't "technically" zombies, but, whatever.)

    What about the ARMA 3 developers being arrested in Greece for being accused of "spying for Greece's enemies?" If I remember correctly it brewed quite a bit of outrage among the gaming community.

    I hadn't even heard of that one, but it sounds awesome.

    Did you guys forget about the Red Ring of Death? Or the Sim City debacle?
  • somedude - November 14, 2013 7:33 p.m.

    The Megaman Legends 3 and Diablo 3 are perfectly reasonable, the others... well, gamers should care about more important stuff.
  • Sinosaur - November 14, 2013 6:27 p.m.

    What makes the biggest, most vocal outrages so depressing is that they tend to destroy any chance at reasonable discussion. Anyone who holds a point of view anywhere in line with the crazy people gets lumped in with them when they may just want to have a conversation. The people making threats and outrageous demands absolutely obliterate the discourse that could have had positive impact, or at least been a valid conversation.

    I'm surprised that Gamesradar's review of Killzone 2 and Halo: Reach made it on here, i'm pretty sure alot of you on this site started those bursts of outrage
  • BladedFalcon - November 14, 2013 7:42 p.m.

    Those were local outrages though, not something that blew up and was widespread all over the Internet. Not to be mean, but GamesRadar is sadly not nearly big or important enough to match the scale of the outrages pointed in this article :P
  • Tranquilbez34 - November 15, 2013 2:14 a.m.

    Yeah True, But they were still over the top and constant ridicule about those scores on Talkradar (the dramatic readings of the Halo Reach comments over the Inception music still gets me) I guess you could add anytime a review goes up online.
  • JakePPetersen - November 18, 2013 1:51 p.m.

    Killzone 2 Nearly made it onto this list. Maybe I'll do a follow-up.
  • Swedish_Chef - November 14, 2013 5:04 p.m.

    Just a few omissions I feel need to be rectified - DmC reboot outrage. - Cancellation of other Megaman titles. - Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 being announced shortly after launch of the original game and releasing less than a year later. - Street Fighter X Tekken on disc DLC and paid gems, Bad Boxart Megaman backlash. - Asura's Wrath true ending DLC. ...You know what screw it at this point you might as well just rename the list Why Everybody Hates Capcom Now...

    Glad I'm not the only one! SFxT pissed me off no end.
