Clickuorice Allsorts: Overwatch and in-game toxicity

Play nice

I want to flag up a video with Overwatch [official site] game director Jeff Kaplan talking about the rise in in-game toxicity. Tackling bad behaviour is interesting, but this video is the first time I can remember someone in a high profile game with toxic behaviour issues spelling out the community members' own responsibility. He also points out that time spent firefighting is time not spent on other features. "Sure we can try to build game systems to encourage [positivity] more, and we will," says Kaplan. "But we need the community to own up to their part in the accountability that they have for really creating a great game space."
