1) I don't like the way they play
2) I don't like the way they are written
3) I don't like the author
4) I don't like the publisher
5) I don't like people who play them
6) I believe that games I lose are inherently insult-worthy
7) The rules are popular, so they must be terrible
8) I believe that my condescension will convert the poor benighted 'eathens who play that game to the True Light of <my favorite competing rule set>
9) All the cool kids are baggin' on them, so who am I to disagree?
10) That game shot my dog

Maybe change the title to "Reasons I Go Out of My Way To Insult Other People's Favorite Games".

I don't go out of my way to do so, I simply respond to such games BEGGING for the insults…

Perhaps an "All of the Above" choice if it makes a poll.

11) I'm just a jerk that enjoys ruinng other people's fun.

Ken Portner01 Jun 2012 10:17 a.m. PST

12) I cannot accept the existence in the world of someone who doesn't hold the same opinions I do.

13) I gain great satisfaction from hurling snarky comments at bundles of paper, cardboard counters and little plastic and metal men. They bait me by not responding – so I just shout louder. THAT SHOWED THEM THE STUPID INANIMATE OBJECTS !

'I am performing an academic study.'

Yes, we need to add:
11) Those games are just askin' for it!
12) I cannot accept the subjective nature of "fun"
13) All of the above

14) My parents taught me that if you can't say something sarcastic, don't say anything at all.

richarDISNEY01 Jun 2012 11:00 a.m. PST

I don't insult games, just players.

8 and 10 for me. I still mourn over my dog lassie, who was killed by those rules sets across the street. Damn other rules, always breaking the rules!

Yesthatphil01 Jun 2012 11:38 a.m. PST

15) I don't think for myself I just join in.


16)I can get away with it! By the time they've got back with their big brother, I've run away.

17.) Allright, which one of you little… insulted my kid brother's rules? Speak up, what are you chicken?

I hate companies that use nice graphics, good production values and have the temerity to appear to want to maximize profit.The only good games are written on used fast food napkins and are free.

18. To warn people not to waste thier time and money.

lugal hdan01 Jun 2012 12:28 p.m. PST

18 is just a variation on 8.

21eRegt01 Jun 2012 1:13 p.m. PST

19. I heard from my best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother that they sucked.

Shark Six Three Zero01 Jun 2012 1:20 p.m. PST

20. The company started to show signs of success so they must be driven out of business. We need to insult them into failure!

Glengarry 401 Jun 2012 2:30 p.m. PST

18 Has no competing ruleset it is trying to push.

lugal hdan01 Jun 2012 3:19 p.m. PST

True enough, Glengarry 4! 18 belongs on the list too.

Glengarry 401 Jun 2012 5:27 p.m. PST

Spoken like a gentleman, lugal dan!
