This community needs to be a little more mature

Ok, I'm getting mad, here. Now, I know there are people mad at every DLC release because they didn't get the song that THEY wanted, but recently things have been a little, eh, bad.

During the Rock Band Blitz release, I found it touching how Harmonix would make a totally new game for those who like arcade style. The game is addicting itself. They also wanted to find a way Rock Band players could experience Rock Band without paying extra for instruments. Now, I've seen the comments on the launch trailer, and they have been not good. They were complaining that "This is not Rock Band" or "Rock Band is dead"! Harmonix gives people who can't afford that much money a chance to play a really fun action-packed Rock Band game without instruments, while at the same time giving hardcore Rock Band fans a chance to play our DLC in a fun new way. We didn't have to hate on them for that. Now, I know a lot of people in the forums love RBB, but remember that the forums is a small part of the community. All I'm saying is, they gave us a present, and some people just couldn't control themselves and they start hating.

Now, on another note, during the release of the Green Day Pack 03, there was more noticeable hate. Now, Harmonix gave us a present by giving us some songs from Green Day: Rock Band as DLC. This brought many good things.
1. People who don't want to pay for the whole game and export for 40+ songs they don't like can finally choose one or two of the songs they do like from the four given to us.
2. People who can't export on Wii can finally have some more Green Day DLC in Rock Band 3.
3. People who don't have Green Day: Rock Band can play online with other people who have exported GD:RB songs.
That's 3 reasons I can think of, and I could come up with more. Now, how do you think we react. "Oh, thank you"? NO! We did the complete opposite. We complain we were getting the same songs, and not even Rock Band 3 versions. We wanted MORE NEW SONGS FROM GREEN DAY. Again, Harmonix gave us a present, and we complain about it.

All I'm saying is that nowadays, the Rock Band community just seems like a greedy little 8 year old who just wants MORE AND MORE ICE CREAM. Come on, people, shape up and be mature, and BE THANKFUL!!!!!

    #2 is untrue, Wii can export GDRB and RB2. But lets not bring this up again, it flooded last weeks discussion thread and people have moved on as shown by the 311 discussion thread.

    It's been this way for like 4 and a half years. I don't see a change on the horizon.

    there's a difference between being immature and having an opinion. you don't have to like or agree with everything HMX does to be mature. there are plenty of people on the forums who express opinions and criticize certain DLC choices or game choices in a mature fashion (and of course, some who do it in an immature fashion). there are also people who are very immature in the way they attack anyone who posts something negative or critical towards the game or HMX. it goes both ways.

    They gave us a present? Really? I can't remember anyone ever giving me a present and expecting to make a monetary profit off of said present.

    Here's a brand new bike for christmas, now Son if you give us $250 you can have this bike.

    Welcome to the internet.

    Really you found it touching that HMX made a game they can sell? Why, because they are a game developer and it was unexpected that they would try to make money by developing another game?

    As I've said before why should I be thankful that HMX produces a product that makes them a profit. They're not a charity. They don't do it for my personal well being, or yours for that matter. They're a business who's intention is to make money. I'm not exactly thankful that subway makes sandwiches, it's what I expect them to do.

    You did fine. Without trying to put words in your mouth I think your post comes down to:

    Our own personal opinions are not the center of the world, try and appreciate the perspectives of others.


    This is a valuable lesson not only for the forums but for life in general.

    While it's true that Harmonix is a business and we do need money to pay our rent (our landlord STILL won't accept song and dance as payment), that doesn't mean we're solely motivated by avarice. We wouldn't have these forums or engage as often as we do or put out half the ridiculous content we do if the community didn't matter to us. Games and DLC may not be a "gift", but that doesn't mean people should take it for granted.

    This attitude bums me all the way out. The idea that the internet is a terrible place where people are free to be anonymous jerks and we should all just accept it makes me want to barf.

    I get what you were trying to say and I appreciate the gesture. It's true that we'll never be able to please everyone in a given week, and we don't expect everyone to love everything we do, but it's nice to see when members of the community try to encourage others to be a little bit more respectful.

    It has the right level of immaturity. Makes for fun conversations and comments, but doesn't go over the top... Most of the time.

    There will always be people complaining about something, especially on the Internet. Today it's too much modern rock. Before that it was RB3 versions and too much classic rock. At RB3 launch it was All Instruments mode, not having 5 characters on stage, stand-ins not being tied to one instrument (though a workaround was quickly found for that), goal unlocks for clothes and instruments, etc. Before that it was dlc they should have waited to put on RB3. You can even trace it back to RB1 where people complained about their character's being tied down to one instrument.

    In the end people seem to completely forget about most of the complaints which just goes to show how minor some of them are.

    Wouldn't that be what these forums would end up like if bands such as Led Zeppelin, Muse, Metallica, Pink Floyd, etc. got content released exclusively for Dance Central :p

    I'd be tempted to join that bandwagon if that happened, but I'd more than likely grab a chair, some popcorn and just wait to see the ****storms fly around here. It would be way too entertaining!

    Edit: I actually play DC as well, so i'd buy that dlc anyway.
