Yeah, I can get what you are saying. Unfortunately, some people still do think that you have to be 'better' than them and those people? They are usually some of the worst in whatever area it is.

Terrible writers and terrible artists especially tend to 'white knight' for better ones, EVEN WHEN THEY SPECIFICALLY ASK FOR CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM.

You know what's sad? Someone at IGN did this stupid rant video about how entitled gamers are because they want something that isn't a buggy, DRM-laden, cash grab and game making is hard so stop being so meeeaaaan. It all basically boils down to "Let's see you do better," with a dash of "Don't like, don't criticize."

@robybang: A lot of gamers ARE fairly entitled, to be honest, to the point where it is pretty shameful.

Expecting a game to work when you buy it isn't entitlement though. It's kinda part of making the damn game.

@MoogleSam: I believe John Cleese put it pretty good when he once said to know how utterly terrible you are at something takes at least a little skill, so that if you really are just the worst, you can't know how much because you don't know the skills to improve yourself.

Overall, I think my next little essay will be about criticism - both making and receiving.

@Zero Kirby: Sadly, what is most annoying about it is that it is usually somewhere where there are hundreds of examples of BETTER work that could be learned from.

And white knighting for someone who actually ASKS for constructive criticism makes me want to hit my head off a desk. It makes no logical sense. WHY WOULD YOU DEFEND THEM FROM THEIR GOOD POINTS AND BAD POINTS!? *Dies from the lack of logic*
