I have to admit some of those are pretty accurate about me at times in more than just this game.

It is a shame that something that is created to bring fun and joy can do the exact opposite. I think this point "Different Goals create a Conflict of Interest in the Video Games" is one of the main problems in gaming today. Not to say the other points do not apply.

Did not read yet. My guess is competitiveness nature in humans, and then how companies structure thier games so that players are frustrated/angry, therefore Buy things to dominate others. Time to read it then

Don't tell me...let me guess...

They psychobabble evaluators have figured out how to classify it as a "disease" or an "affliction" that they can cure for you w/treatment or psychobabble medications (Warning: Side effects can include death...if this happens please inform your doctor immediately)...

Remember when those people (the actual "doctors"...& I use that term loosely) used to just be the punch lines in sit coms because everybody knew they were full of it? Still the #1 leading profession in suicide rates...go figure?

I don't need to read something to tell me why I'm displeased with players that have thousands of games under their belts and still don't even remotely show any signs of understanding the basics. 

As for fitting something in an article -- well try ordering chinese take out, their cookies are full of similar fitting advice.

Sounds like you actually need to read it as well as seek out therapy

They're not wrong that it's mostly gobbledygook about males repressing emotions and toxicity and the usual nonsense.  WoWs makes people mad because it's designed to, and it's not alone.  The objective is engagement, not satisfaction.  The more random factors introduced (idiot players, RNG) then the less control one has over the outcome.  The less control one has over the outcome, the more frustration builds.  Couple that with lots of carrots made to keep you "engaged" as long  as possible, anger consequently rises.  None of which is addressed in the blog, which chooses instead to rely on spurious analogies like not crying during sad movies.  Ergo, the problem is not with the games at all - it's with you, and the fact that you don't cry enough about your feelings and society telling you how to be a man.  It's pop psych agenda drivel, words for the sake of words.

I'd hazard to guess that it correlates to our expectations of others in said environment to perform to minimum standards.  As any standard is relative (unlike the military), players would not be enjoying the game as much as they were initially designed from inception.

Do you inhale?

Do you Exhale?

Researchers have discovered that people that are mentally ill have been know to do 1 of those 2 things at least once a day...& the conditions are totally treatable...

Just remember to inform your doctor about the aforementioned death (& any subsequent deaths thereafter) that occur on account of treatments & you too can learn to control that inhaling/exhaling disease...

I'll get right on that...just as soon as I finish reading this week's issue of the "World Weekly News"...gotta prime the pump for [edited](<---That would be the initials for bovine excrement.that was edited there) overload 1st.

Agreed.  A quick look at their other "articles" (read, blogs posts) shows a very obvious trend along the same lines ("Male, Your/MySon," etc.).  I wonder how the author would characterize my daughter raging about Fortnite or Apex Legends.  Probably the fault of the Patriarchy or some such.

Wait - in this case, I'm the patriarchy!

Pay no attention to the - *ahem* - individual behind the curtain!

Which points towards more of the school of thought; "Men don't think like women, therefor they must be broken and in need of fixing."

I think it has been loosely designed to start to get you thinking that the problem is not the games, the problems are within you etc....
Most people will fail to grow as individuals during their lives unless really challenged. 

If you never grow as an individual, you stay the same, and if you fail to realize that, that individual is likely going to blame everything around them and everyone around them rather than going the hard route and ask the question 'is the problem me' 

Those individuals that fail to ask that question about themselves ever, do not do well in life and play into what the article loosely touches on. 

So broken human remains broken essentially. 
Personal growth is crucial to do well in life. 

Sometimes you can never say or do anything worse than what it is to be someone like them, 
so if you want someone to suffer, just let them rot and never grow,  and never help them grow. 
They will collapse their own life around them.

Best example of what I have said and plays right into it.

I think the word you're looking for is Responsibility...which if you know how to break down the meaning of words literally translates into exactly what it says...

The Ability to Respond...for your words &/or actions.

If you need to point to others & say, "It's their fault"...then you will always be the effect of others & never be at cause in your own life.

But go ahead & use me as your poster child if you can't understand basic common sense...

& if you order now...a free set of tarot cards for those that need somebody to point the way for them...

Sad part is it was probably wrote by a man that isn't allowed to publish anything w/out his wife proofreading it 1st to make sure he didn't throw in any "manly failures" in his text.

If that is true he has one manly failure I can spot right off.
