Fanboys and fangirls, we all know them, we all hate them. What exactly is a console fanboy/girl?
A console fanboy/girl is a biased person who consistently claims that a product they prefer is practically flawless and insults anyone who prefers another.
Sadly, the term gets abused nowadays. Someone who says he/she prefers one console over another is immediately considered a ‘fanboy’ or a ‘fangirl’. The most commonly forgotten fact is that fanboys/girls are people who offend another console and the people who play them for the sake of making their preferred product seem superior, not people who are just expressing an opinion (see examples below).
Expressing an opinion: “From what I’ve seen, Nintendo really needs to step up their game. They barely have any third party support for the Wii U’s future software lineup. This isn’t the ’80s and early ’90s anymore, a third party company won’t cease to exist just because they chose not to develop a game for Nintendo.”
Fanboy/girl: “looks liek the wii u is in some trouble. all u nintendo fags wont be looking forward to any new nintendo stuff. lolololololol. oh well at least they might make games for ps4 like sega does (if they’ll let them).”
It’s sickening to how rampant fanboys/girls have gotten, I see them everywhere I go. Fanboys/girls, does it help you sleep at night when you do this shit? Does it ever occur to you how redundant console wars are? These companies could not careless how much you defend or offend them, whether it’s Nintendo, Sony or Microsoft. They don’t care about you, they care about what’s in their pockets.
Just clear the concept of gaming from your mind, and picture your favorite console. What do you see? A piece of fucking plastic with wires and chips. Now remember that, and think of all the things you’ve said and typed to others. Yeah, you feel pretty fucking stupid, don’t you?
P.S. If you’re one of these people—get help.
