* In the 1970s, as SlashFic became prominent, anyone who protested was often told "IDIC", i.e., the universe is made up of an infinite number of very different factors, so let be.

* Many people seem to hate the {{MMORPG}} genre as a whole, and then complain on the {{MMORPG}} forums that it's not enough like single-player [=RPGs=], [=FPSes=], platformers, puzzles, multiplayer [=FPSes=], [=MMOFPSes=], etc... Meanwhile, here come games like ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' and ''GuildWars'' and guess what they get criticized about? That's right...for being like an {{MMORPG}}, whereas ironically, the fans of {{MMORPG}}s (yes, they exist) often sneer at games like those for ''not'' being {{MMORPG}} ''enough''.

** And Nintendo even put the Super guide in ''New Super Mario Bros. Wii'' and ''Super Mario Galaxy 2''. Even when it was announced, the forums were ''full'' of screaming that it's being dumbed down and that gamers wouldn't even have to look up at GameFAQs. It is completely optional, but even using it becomes an EasyModeMockery and blocks one hundred percent completion. Naturally, they are just complaining that it ''EXISTS'' - it's ''less'' tedious to ''not'' use it because you have to die ''eight times'' before it's offered. Most of the time, you'd run out of lives.
*** There's even an apparent super guide in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time 3D]]'' offering solutions to puzzles for people who have not played the game or any of its hundreds of rereleases and remakes before. In order to view these videos, you have to go back to a gossip stone in Kokiri village or the Temple of Time. It's actually ''less'' tedious to just figure the puzzle out yourself or, since it's for a portable system, go to GameFAQs or load up a video on Website/YouTube showing how it's done.

** Also targeted (and often justified) at user-reviews in places like GameFAQs. Granted, these are treated as incredibly amateur reviews, especially since one will probably see someone complaining at a game for simply being made by one company in at least one review, or reviews that are probably bordering on the lines of FlameBait or {{Troll}}ing.

* The people who've been saying the game was ruined since ''Day two'' of games like ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'', ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'', ''VideoGame/GuildWars'', and ''EverQuest'' fit this trope. For some odd reason, many of them will complain how it was ruined for ''awhile'', yet have obviously not quit yet -- especially when they claim they have found better games.
