Edition warring confounds me to some extent.
I can understand the desire to spread the word about a game you like. I can even understand the desire to express your discontent about a given game. What I don’t understand are people who are so vocal — and so vitriolic about it — that it seems like their own sense of self-worth is bound up in someone else’s opinion about Game A or Edition B.
So I’m honestly asking the question here: why do people get so entrenched in edition warring? What’s the appeal?
