Having said that, my time on LIVE is pretty enjoyable and I love the service. I met a ton of cool people I like to sit down, shoot the sh** with, ask them about their region and how life is there, etc., while I play a game of co-op Gears, Halo 3, or what have you.

So yes, this is my short attempt to defend Live. I just don't like it how people use these "full of assholes" comment to discount it. It's a weak argument because as with anything popular, it's a given but it should not be a means to pass judgment on an otherwise great service.

BINGO! Butter gets the point of this thread. The decision I made to allow my son to play H3 was a bad one. That is why he doesn't play it. I sat my son down and explained that I was wrong for letting him play that game and why he would not be playing it any longer. I did not feel the need to put this in that in this thread because it was not part of the topic. If I wanted to post a thread about me being wrong for allowing my son to play H3 then I would have done that. Instead the topic is the type of jerks that play H3. What do we get in return, a thread full of useless posts telling me what I did wrong. LOL!


Ok this is a direct response to all of you who say I am being a prick in this thread by insulting you. You are right. I am bing a prick. I am being a prick for the specific reason that you guys went off topic and on to your own topic about why I let my son play this game. You can count on me making fun of you every time when you do this. If you stay on topic and ask questions then I will treat you like a human. If you do as you have done in this thread, I will tread you like a H3 punk. It's simple really.

Sort of like how the fapping/gay thing was going around these forums for a while....that is just the sort of thing that is going around XBox Live.
The 360 is just so popular. Everyone and his mother has it, which is why Live sucks so much IMO. Over here, the 360 and its games are advertised 24/7 on TV and pretty much everywhere on the street! Every kid has or wants one, then the little bastards go online with them.

Kinda reminds me of the whole CS thing. The community was so great until Valve got involved and the game went retail. The kids just swarmed in.

Anyway, I guess being rated Adult or Mature is irrelevant, it's still not for kids. I guess you learnt your lesson the hard way.
Yes I did. And as I said, that wasn't what this thread was about.

no really. joe, you are acting like an a-hat, about just as bad as the people you are complaining about.

And anyone saying that there are not 14 year olds running around xbox live that have a mouth worse than a sailor claiming they did your mom, well your just dumb. A lot of them fit the below:

My time in Live was short lived.

I had just gotten the 360 webcam and downloaded Uno. I hope on to have a go and first game I cope a heap of abuse for being a "n00b" and having all 0 stats. I tried to tell them that I know how to play Uno and I just got the cam, but I then got told to "**** off you limey bastard". I didn't bother to tell what was wrong with the last comment. I just muted everything, turned off the cam, finished the game and never bothered with Live again.
