D&D40 Bloghop: Day 19
There have been a few.
I have had "the unwashed guy", the "creepy guy" and the "angry guy" all in my groups at one point.
But the one that I have to admit who annoys me the most is also one of the first I ever ran into, he is the "You're Doing it WRONG guy".
This is the guy who has been playing for a while and has decided, for whatever reason that your brand of fun is somehow wrong or deficient in some matter.
I would run into him when I was playing Basic/Expert D&D and he was playing AD&D. I ran into him while playing Chill and he was playing Call of Cthulhu. I run into him all the time on internet.
Of course by "him" I mean a metaphorical "him", but I have never run into a woman gamer that did this. Most times they are older than me (which is now thankfully rarer) but sometimes younger.
I look at this guy the same way I do Edition Wars. Ignore him and continue with my fun.
