Prepare for Unnecessary Hate

posted by Shubbalubbadingdong on - last edited - Viewed by 1.8K users

In the YouTube comments of the TFTB announcement trailer, a lot of people are like "why the hell are they making it a point and click" and "Telltale games suck overall." and "Borderlands should always be a FPS"

So when this amazing game (in our opinions at least) gets released finally, expect for it to get a lot of unnecessary hate.

EDIT: It was not just hate from Telltale users. Most of the hate was from people who had no experience with Telltale games and just want to bash on them turning Borderlands into a point-and-click game.

  • We already get a lot of hate from the TTG community itself.

    But you know what the best way to counter hate is?

    1. Don't post in hateful threads.

    2. Counter with positive threads of your own

    3. Promote discussion between people in the community who are looking forwards to this game.

    The initial negative reaction to the game is exactly why I made this thread: http://www.telltalegames.com/community/discussion/72914/an-introduction-to-the-borderlands-universe-and-lore-spoilers-from-bl1-2

  • @Trentest0 already gave the best advice in regards to the hate this game, which didn't even come out receives. Even though I wasn't around back then, a similar thing happened with TWAU as well, and most people, even the ones who hated it ended up liking it, while some of them still hated it with a passion.

    For example, I never read the comments regarding news/trailers about TWAU on youtube, especially on Telltale's channel.I assume you already saw the wave of negative comments it always received, right? Anyway, I suggest if you want to watch a video regarding news or a trailer do it without reading the comments...much more easier that way.

  • Don't pay attention to the Youtube comments, whether they are trolling or not, a lot of them contain pure idiocy in general.

    When The Walking Dead was first announced a user on the forum created a thread called A Petition, and Protest, Against This Game and it ended up being one of Telltales most successful games ever.

    People tend to hate on things before seeing or even playing them which seems a bit illogical to me. From a personal experience when it was first announced i was unsure about it because i didn't know much about the Borderlands universe but i never hated the idea of it, recently i have done some research by watching videos and reading about it and the universe and humour looks really interesting and i am starting to get excited about it.

  • Well, this game might be the reason Telltale hasn't mentioned anything about a second season of TWAU in case they haven't even abandoned that idea yet.I'm not hating this game because I may end up liking it but seriously TT has to let us know if they want to make a 2nd season or not.

      They don't usually announce their seasons so early in advance. The Walking Dead is a rare exception (and that might have something to do with the fact that Telltale licensed multiple games for The Walking Dead right from the start). The announcement for The Wolf Among Us didn't contain that clause, but that doesn't mean that a second season won't be coming, it just means that if it is it probably won't be announced until closer to release. The other games that had sequels (Sam & Max, CSI, Poker Night, Puzzle Agent) weren't announced until fairly close to their release.

  • Ok so why is this a surprise? It's the borderland fanbase/fps and most importantly the internet.

  • i mainly came from the borderlands franchise to this game, and i dont care to have a point and click borderlands game. i mean this game will make the borderlands universe grow in so much ways.. i loved the borderlands universe but i felt like it had some things missing in it because it was more gameplay focused game and they didnt wanted the lore and story hurt the gameplay in any way. ive watched and read some of telltales works and i know they only gonna do good to this franchise. this game is gonna be great

  • I'm coming here from the Walking Dead forum, swimming in unnecessary hate for all kinds of characters (well, all kinds of characters whose names don't begin with the letterK)(owaitno *has flashbacks to 'Katjaa is evil' thread)

    Trust me, they're annoying, but we can overcome them. Just use reasoned arguments, as they sure as hell won't.

  • A point and click borderlands game would be amazing as it will have to do only with the story. It'going to be another Telltale's masterpiece
