    It depends what games you play online. If you play Halo then quite obviously you're going to be exposed to extreme levels of idiocy.

    Say something like Company of Heroes (not really an Xbox game but hey) and you find literally no childish whining turds.

    I haven't got any of the Halo games. Apart from RPGs the only games I've got are GTA IV and Modern Warfare. It'll be some time before I get round to playing them. I've heard only good things about Modern Warfare 2, though, so I can't wait to go online and get splattered by 12-year-olds.:D

    Here's a free tip: when you go online keep the volume of your tv/monitor down and listen to something decent, otherwise you'll with deluged by homophobic/xenophobic/uneducated crap. The average Xbox Live player has the intellectual capacity of a snail with learning difficulties. Stick some decent music on your stereo and spare yourself the pain.

    Duly noted. I usually listen to the radio when I play, anyway. I find in-game music and sound effects tend to grate after the first half-hour. Of course, that only works if the game has subtitles.:D

    I love engaging with the trash-talk. It's so much fun to spout bullshit to see how much more bullshit the other guy can throw at you to try and top yours off!

    I threw my mic away as soon as I opened the box. I spout enough rubbish at work - gaming gives me a chance to give my tongue a rest.:D

    Good for you. There's enough crap being spewed online.

    But, voice chat is one of the fun things you can do! Follow some guy around and insult him relentlessly. Eventually he will leave the server, and there is one less n00b on the map.

    Added.:D I'm not too hot at shooters either. Close up I can't compete with the kids. To compensate for my poor reactions I stuck an AOG scope on my light machine gun; now I just pick people off from a distance. It's not very sporting, but at least it gives me a chance to kill those snipers who always seem to pick me off when I move from cover.:)

    I'll add you, Sheep, though it looks like you're already in a position to start your own geriatric clan. I don't play online a lot, but if you're ever in the mood for a game of MW2 or Battlefield 1943 at some ungodly time of the morning then send me a message. Just be aware that while 1943 is a relatively idiot-free zone, MW2 is filled with all kinds of fools.

    Cheeky sod! As a self-confessed 'child of the 70s' you're in no position to be casting aspersions!:p

    I've heard loads of good things about Battlefield 1943, so I might just download it. Nice to know the people who play it aren't total gits either.:)

    I only bought my Xbox on Saturday (along with a copy of Fable 2 which I've been wanting to play for aaaages!). I haven't even had time to play the game yet, never mind sort out playing online. I'll be getting gold membership in the next couple of weeks however, so if you're still looking for friends I'll be more than happy to add you. I'm more into RPGs than shoot-em-ups, though, so I doubt we'll be playing any Modern Warfare together. But if you ever feel like playing non-shooty type games then I'm your man.:)

    It's Crime Traveller (original, huh?:rolleyes:) You'll be my first friend. And, considering I don't play wargames, probably my only one.:D

    Yw, SoS! Hope you get to go gold soon! :D

    Lol...yes! I need more age appropriate friends! :D Ok, I wouldn't mind some younglings too as long as they can have fun and don't take things too seriously. ;) You guys are welcome to send me and invite on xbl if you like. I play rpgs like Fable 2 and Oblivion and I also play GoW and CoD. So, feel free to send me a friends request. Just make sure you let me know who you are cos I tend to get random requests from emo kids looking to make "friends" with girl gamers. I just wish they would take the time to read my bio on there then they'd know I'm prolly old enough to be most of there Mums!

    I don't know what age you are Il, and I'm far too polite to ask a lady her age, but it seems everyone else I've added is over 30, which can only be a good thing. I've nothing against young people, but judging from the horror stories I've heard about Xbox Live players I'm kinda glad about that. Oldies ftw!:D

    Pff...I've no interest in being friends with anyone under 30, horrible as it sounds. I'm nearly forty; nothing I say is of interest to them, and nothing they say is of interest to me. I'd rather just have 'oldies' on my friends list; at least there's a fair chance they won't be illiterate/hysterical/just plain stupid.:D
