You can hear terrible prejudices bubble up when you're playing a Killzone, Call of Duty or Halo match online. This stuff is bad when you're in the heat of a tense deathmatch showdown, trying to just have fun and win. It's even worse away from the game.


The Bigot Gamer collects all sorts of overheated sexist, racist, homophobic chatter heard while playing online multiplayer games:

This site is a social experiment. The more occurrences of discriminatory behavior by more and more individuals posted to this site will prove to the Ann Coutlers of the world that Bigotry is alive and thriving. And when people think they are anonymous, they don't hold back. Oh how the hate flows when you think there are zero consequences.

… we are not trying to stop discrimination in the gaming world. We're just trying to expose it in easy, click-able links.

Without the context of kill-or-be-killed combat, you can really sit back and soak in the ignorance of the people putting their bigotry on display. Who knows, building a repository like this might make people think twice about acting this way in online games.



There are lot's of idiots out there for sure. Ruining a game experience though? That's pretty damn sensitive there. You're bound to run into a lot of problems in life if you let other people ruin things for you just by being jerks.
