- IRL sports: there's tons of trash talk you can do without personal attacks or vulgarity. I've had a back and forth against Yankees fans in Yankee Stadium, but the second the game ended things were good. I've defended another team's fan from a fellow Bulls fan because the drunken fellow was using vulgarity with plenty of kids around.
- fighting games: MAHVEL BAYBEE is hilarious to me, partly because I'm black (and don't care for the Knicks). I was disappointed to see Marn walk away after BIONIC ARM, but happy to see Clakey D shake Tokido's hand after that Akuma pose. The only time I remember playing a fighting game online where I could talk with I don't know personally was DOA 4, and we were complimentary to each other. 5-6 years ago and I still remember that positive experience.
- Other genres: TF 2 matches with are much more fun with civility, and Dueling Network games are damn near no fun without it.
