Identifying "fanboys" in the wild

Sure to ruffle a few feathers, but nothing short of painfully accurate, almost everyone will find a little something of themselves in this how-to guide about identifying people that love something a little too much.

From the article: "Over time, I've noticed that only certain games generate fanboyism, while others do not. Let's talk about who these fanboys are, so you can learn to spot them in the wild.

I'll just get the traditional fanboys out of the way. The easy to spot fanboys. Hmmm, let's see:

Halo Fanboys - Twenty something men that are visually identified by bulging neck veins, usually caused by screaming at anyone that doesn't bow down to Halo Jesus...."

But I assume Sony fanboys are fine with you?

Hypocracy, thy name is Internet.

Exhaust3247d ago (Edited 3247d ago )

You must cry yourself to sleep at night knowing deep down inside how much of a completely biased, blind fanboy douche you are.

You're like the KKK calling the Nazis racist. LOL

Remember folks:

It's okay to be stupidly loyal to a corporation that only wants your money and doesn't care about you at all, as long you're stupidly loyal to the RIGHT corporation that only wants your money and doesn't care about you at all!

Silellak3247d ago

LOL, holy crap, the Sony Defense Force swarmed in here and showed our posts no mercy! Look at those "disagree" counts rise for daring to mention that Sony fanboys JUST MIGHT be as bad as Microsoft fanboys!

Of course, every time they click "disagree", they're just further proving our point, but no one tell them that!

So says the one bubble rabid idiot named Xbotz suck. lol

360 fanboys don't spend all day every day trolling looking for anti PS3 news and bashing without end nor do they post news threads attacking Sony fans.

This site is so full of Sony fanboys any idiot can mention Xbox sucks or mention Xbox supporters in a negative light and this idiot will get tons of agree's.

Nice user pic moron. lol

Grow up kid.

THAT'S EXACTLY ALL YOU DO EVERYDAY..

Goddamn, you're such a hypocrite.

Oh btw, PERSONAL ATTACK! I thought you hated those, right? You sure complained about them 20 times a day a few weeks ago.

power of Green 3247d ago (Edited 3247d ago )

Nice user pic.

Did you say something?. What?, 360 fans will dig up bad PS3 news in blogs and post them as news if they can't find bad news in the mainstream?.

XBOX 3603247d ago (Edited 3247d ago )

Do you EVER listen? I'm not talking about 360 FANS.

I AM TALKING ABOUT YOU.

I don't lump 360 fans and PS3 fans together like you. I know there are some 360 fans who don't troll, and I know there are some that do, like you for instance. Same with PS3 fans. So stfu with that. Next you'll be telling me only African Americans or other minorities commit crimes.

YOU troll 24/7 looking for ways to make PS3 look bad?

YOU troll every single PS3 game thread to bash PS3 games?.

YOU drive away PS3 fans from this site and out number PS3 fans in PS3 threads?.

YOU troll PS3 threads so much 360 fans cause PS3 fans to get blocked from the PS3 section?.

YOU troll so much PS3 fans are no longer wanting to be a member of this site and 360 fans controll PS3 news where theres more 360 fans posting PS3 news than there is PS3 fans posting PS3 news?.

YOU troll PS3 news trying to set an anti PS3 tone in PS3 threads?

YOU Post in PS3 threads trying to convince PS3 games are not worth anybodies time of day?.

YOU force PS3 fans to praise 360 games or be attacked?

And thanks for noticing my user pic. I seem to notice that you don't mention this to 360 fanboys who have anti-PS3 user pics.

Keep acting like a victim, no one believes you. You're a troll/liar/fanboy/etc wrapped up into one nice little package.

Spinner3247d ago

Wow, blade...

Did you forget the years 2006 and 2007? Where this site was littered with nonstop "news" of every blog and forum post with Anti-PS3 news.

Did you forget E3 2006? All that FUD?

Yes? Ok.

power of Green 3247d ago

Stop replying to me idiot people have better things to do than trying to decipher belligerent malice driven points of view from guys named *Xbots Suck* and guys that use anti MSFT user pics in a PS3 website. lol

I Love Xbox 3603247d ago (Edited 3247d ago )

PoG You Used To Be Cool ... Oh Wait No Sori I Mistaked You For Someone Else.

This is one of the best threads I have ever seen.

"Stop replying to me idiot people have better things to do than trying to decipher belligerent malice driven"

Shhesh, verbal abuse is it now POG? tut tut. I also had trouble trying to read your hilarious rant! I think you need to regroup, take stock (and your meds) of your situation and get some URGENT grammar lessons! Then you need to calm down and quit crying ALL THE TIME! "Malice this", "rabid that", do you know just how desperate you ALWAYS sound? Fanboys from both sides get on my nerves on N4G, but everyone of them bar you just keep things down to "mines bigger than yours" type comments. You go many MANY steps further and take nigh on EVERYTHING personally!
Is it really THAT important in you life? Is it worth all the hasle and disagrees you seem to get? Is it really? You have serious social issues and you really need to take a break from N4G champ, then come back a stronger and more laid back person, ready for the trials and tribulations that is N4G.

As someone who is normally pro-mocking of any sort of fanboy (particularly Corporate Fanboys), I have to say, this wasn't terribly funny.

fenderputty3247d ago

now that is entertainment. Watching fanboys argue over the definition of fanboyism and finger pointing is just classic. POG is in there acting like a saint. I mean ... that stuff should be saved and then sent back to the sarcasticgamer to show them what they started.

Covenant3247d ago

Well, all one really needs is a good fanboy shield, which consists of:

--Rational thought,

--Coherent ideas,

--Intelligent discourse,

--And, of course, naked women.

Fanboys don't know what to do with any of those things.

OpiZA3247d ago

Hehe very very good :)

DarkSniper3247d ago

The only fanboys that seem to take their console loyalty to an unrealistic proportion are the Microslaves. The Microslaves on N4G have been known to post baseless and simply untrue facts about their console and the gaming industry in general. Their sole existence should be terminated from life period.

Thankfully Dark Sniper has his legion of Sony Snipers who indulge in a mature, respectful community here at N4G. With your help, we can get rid of the disgrace of the internet community known as Red Light 360 Baboons.

$niper

Silellak3247d ago

You know what, I'll believe Microsoft fanboys are worse than Sony fanboys when someone creates a Microsoft-themed website like http://www.sonydefenseforce... and has people wondering if either:

1) It's a parody website

or

2) People are actually *that* stupid

"Thankfully Dark Sniper has his legion of Sony Snipers who indulge in a mature, respectful community here at N4G. With your help, we can get rid of the disgrace of the internet community known as Red Light 360 Baboons."
Respectful doesn't mean calling people baboons. I however have never said anything about being respectful to you.
You are a completely delusional, rubber room needing, mashed banana eating, straight jacket wearing, always talk in the third person twat of the highest order. SERIOUSLY GET SOME HELP FOR YOURSELF!!!!!!!!!!

Kaz Hirai3247d ago (Edited 3247d ago )

It's a tragic shame that N4G is so infected with Xbot PIGS. Their fanboyish loyalty to Nazisoft is truly sickening! Sony Soldiers, you must help your King to purge this site of the SWINE and stop them from spreading their notorious verbal diarrhea.
However, King Kaz is grateful to have such a respectful, logical fanbase! Sony Soldiers- thank you!

MWAH-HA-HA-HA!!!

XBOX 3603247d ago

XBOTS are the fu[king worst. They resort to making up sh!t to try and flame.

We don't need to make up anything, their console does all the flaming for us. :P
