My Rant On Fanboys


Teqila

Recommended Posts

The fanboyism epidemic is getting out of hand. I cannot watch a single video that has anything to do with videogames on Youtube without the coments being flooded by Xbox fanboys proclaiming how great the 360 is and how much the other console sucks. There are a few Playstation and Nintendo fanboys but Xbox fanboys are by far the largest group.

There is a line between fan and fanboy, fans prefer a particular brand but fanboys will support only one brand and go out of their way to debase the other one. I had multipe Gameboys variations, a DS, and a 360 and I understand what they're like. The problem is that fanboys are willfully ignorant so that they can degrade the people who don't own their pet brand without thought. I should ignore it but I feel compelled to do something about it.

PS3 SUXXXXX 360 HAS GAMES AND LIIIIIIIIIIVE

 

 

Im so sick of that. I think there are reasons for this though

 

nintendo fanboys want to feel better about the other 2 thnking they were all that with their wifi ans sh*t

 

ps3 fanboys feel they have a better piece of hardware with a better future and want to feel better about being secondary concerns for developers (but thats changing now so this ranting should end )

 

360 fanboys all bought their 360s before the ps3 came out. Most 360 fanboys think the ps3 is better in their mind so are afraid that they made the wrong decision so they defile the ps3 far and wide hoping to get others to buy their consle and feel better about themselves.

 

It does seem to be reducing slightly but you can always go aroung the internet say that their all equal and have ups and downs.

I hate it when I come up with a well thought reply to the PS3 SUX AND 360 HAS LIVE statement only to be replied to with illogical drivel.

In my experience, PS3 fanboys have been more prominent with stuff like "HAHA GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR RROD!" or something like that.

 

It's all ridiculous, really.

 

I just don't see what fanboys get out of putting down other consoles. It's not like they own Sony, Microsoft, or Nintendo.

Strange....I havent seen a ps3 fanboy use anything but RROD against 360s. 360 fanboys used to use games but now its useless drivel. Shame those who make the least sense are the most predominent. I kinda respect Nintendo fanboys for not snifing one negative thing about their consle and roaring.

I wouldn't call myself a console fanboy, as our household uses both Sony and Microsoft products quite a lot, but I would call myself a GTA fanboy.

 

There's just some sort of.. thing I have against any GTA competitor. Even though I liked The Getaway and loved Crackdown, I am stuck to GTA like glue.

Im like Starion on this i couldnt care what fanboys think abou each ther consoles if you start arguin over the net anyway your a moron right there and then and no need to carry on. But with GTA its different its the reason i never bought SR and wont be buyin SR2, somethin that just wont let me do it. Although i did buy TCLA. Must be the fact that SR have decided to take the piss out of R* and GTA or somethin.

there are special exclusive games for each console, I know atleast 3 consoles+games:

GameCube - MarioKart DoubleDash (which I have, but I dont say "hahahahah n00bs! you dont have Maiokart! lololllolo!!!")

PS3 - Motorstorm, awesome game, but I dont have the console though tounge2.gif

Xbox 360 - FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage, microsoft's console, who will release a PC version around 14th june I guess. still microsoft biggrin.gif

 

you can add some things to this list if you know any other exclusive game.

but still, about the stupid guys thinking they are the best because of their console. I think that because they only have played on one console and like never played another and heard rumours, they thinks that those rumours are true and then makes it look like a big thing. for what? other gamer guys in school talking about them and then laughing their asses off? and what sort of difference are they making? I know what they do. and that is making the buyers really, really confused about which console to get.

I'm sick of people ranting on about fan boys. It's people like you guys who do rant on about them, that makes them come back every time just to sh*t in your faces.

 

No matter what you say on an internet forum, It's not going to change someones personality. If everyone ignores said fan boy, he/she will then realise that they don't have a brain and will cease being such a douche.

 

But seriously. If all you can do is rant on about how much you 'h8 fanboyz' then you really need to get out.

Just take it with a pinch of salt and laugh it off. I too am fed up to console wars, MS VS apple, Ipod VS every other pmp out there.

 

Just don't even take notice of them. do what you feel is right for you.

To be honest, why would you even care what some person half way around the world thinks about the product you own? The important thing is that you enjoy and make use of whatever you have and let the fanboys have their retarded fun.

Dreamcast FTW!!!!

 

Still, I agree. I have tried to stop my fanboyism, however I some times go full out on it. A lot of my friends got pissed of at me (360 fan boys) and started to hate. Thats when i realized consoles were killing me, so I stopped fanboyism.

I've been a PS fan ever since the PS1, but I have a XBOX aswell. Never really cared much for Nintendos, but I had a Gameboy Advance once upon a time.

 

I take the consoles on their merits. I do prefer Playstations, but other consoles have things going for them too. Why stick to one, when there are some many other choices out there?

Bigger maret of xbox user=Bigger percentage of fanboys.

 

Say if 10% of people were 'fanboys' you are more likely to encounter a fanboy for xbox rather than PS3 due to it having a larger base.

You are a fanboy.

 

lol

 

 

 

 

God, these guys have been around for so long.

 

Electronics seem to have made fanboys a real phenomenon.

 

It used to be cars and stuff like that, Chevy vs. Ford vs. Mopar.

 

And then computers and sh*t, and now game consoles, its funny.

 

I remember nothing of the kind in the days of NES and Atari and Genesis and SNES, everyone just got along.

I never understood fanboys, and I never will. And quite frankly I dont want to. From various posts made by some fanboys on this particular forum, I came to a conclusion that all fanboys are somewhere between 10 - 15 years old.

It's called the Internet. The place where you can talk sh*t and have no consequences. I have yet to actually meet a fanboy in real life.

If you are lucky, you will never actually meet one. When I was looking for info on next gen consoles in my country I saw a 360 fanboy dissing PS3 in a middle of "Sony" store confused.gif If you ever imagined a fanboy, trust me, its worse in real life
