Dammit, we want you to tell us stuff! Stuff like your game griefing experiences.
This isn’t some marketing survey or whatever. It’s an emotional investment in you. Yes, we’re interesting in knowing you, Kotaku reader person. You probably know enough about us — more than you even want to, we’re sure. But, hey, we’d like to know about you, too.
Anyway, here’s today’s question…
Griefing: the act of ruining another person's enjoyment of a game for your own perverse pleasure. Are you a griefer? Have you been griefed? What are your best griefing stories? Tell us.
Me? I'm not a griefer. My preference for single-player games tends to rule me out. However, when I do play online, I tend to play co-op games with friends. And there's one friend in particular who gets a fair amount of grief. For example, in Borderlands, it's hilarious to jump in the second car and constantly bombard this friend with rockets aimed just fractionally ahead of his car. I know it doesn't do any damage, but the way he reacts when he can no longer see where he's driving is comedy gold. Another co-op Borderlands friend takes great pleasure in cancelling the travel initiation whenever my poor griefed friend wants to exit to another area. Oh, how we laugh.
