Most games rely upon some form of co-operation in dividing up the items monsters drop. Not everyone likes to co-operate.
But then how do these unscrupulous people sleep? Without waking up with a knife in the ribs, at any rate?
Ah, sorry. For context - it is mostly a problem in MMOGs - where retribution is nigh impossible. I suppose it could also mean stealing from ninja, but that probably would lead to the sleep problem. --Vitenka
As for how such scum can live with themselves? Remember - "It's just a game" "I'm just having fun" "You play the way you want to, and I'll play the way I want to"... Classic examples of just not getting it, but the mindset is effective. --Vitenka
