Co-op vs. competitive multiplayer? (Destiny)

Oh there's definitely some substance to this theory. Direct competition between the players must bring out the... whatever-it-is in preteens and dudebros that fuels screaming and racist rants. Or, possibly those people just don't play co-op games in the first place. Either way, I've figured out which sort of game I'd rather be playing.

Yup. I also credit the divide between gamers with actual taste versus the more casual types that will largely surf the games zeitgeist. Iron Brigade (and arguably Mass Effect 3) are a little off the beaten path. I think there's a direct correlation there with respect to how mainstream a game is versus quality of ingame communication among the player base.
