This week, Gaming Verdict explains why fanboys are reducing the game industry and why they must be stopped. At all costs.
Shame on you, SWINE! At least my Sony Soldiers know how to behave! 50 days until Judgment Day, Nazisoft! MWAH-HA-HA-HA!!!
the open zone i will say Fúck you!
I remember pre-xbox when games were fun. All these xbox fanboys ruin everything.
He likes to PM everyone when he don't get his way!!! ;-D GET A LIFE!!! ;-D Same to you to!!! SEE??? How he talks??? Need i say more!!! ;-D +Like Micro$oft there RUINING Gaming!!!
am I allowed to use the F word in an article like this?
I haven't read the article, but based on the heading, it sounds like another "holier than thou" type article. I don't see at all how fanboys have any real impact on the industry other than posting back and forth on sites like N4G. I mean, how can you put a tangible negative value on that? Plus honestly, they routinely point out flaws in the competition, which should in turn make the companies better to satisfy their fans. Competition is good, and fanboys, while annoying sometimes, aren't really a negative. The only negative of fanboyism is getting annoyed by them... but that's all.
Hrm. First you say they have no impact on the industry and then you go on to say that fanboys point out flaws of the other system which should in turn make the companies better. Contradiction? What I want to know is what kind of prize does the winning side get when whichever system wins? The amount of time devoted by some of the people at least here you would think they get a check for a million dollars. Oh well, fanboys provide some good comedy and it's something you can point at and say.. "ewww, you don't want to end up like that". haha
Man, I loved Hunt the Wumpus!!! Long live the Wumpus
Basically I was just saying if they do have an impact, I don't see how it would be a negative one.
afterall half of the fun of coming to n4g is reading some of the ridiculous and half-assed statements made by them.
Yup, N4G would be kinda bland without them :)
Most children become fanboys because of one thing. Their mommies wouldn't buy them multiple consoles.
Or maybe i dont live in your rich family and can only afford one console. Some fanboys also think that you have to play nearly every game ever created to be allowed to speak before them and to play only the most mature of games and to forget the fun in it
I think it's the other way around. Fanboys are fueling the VG industry. So much hype, flamewars, and wannabe Michael Pachter's these days.
Most of the fanboys I've met in real life usually speak from what they read off the net or what the "Crowd" likes; online its usually just for the attention using "NPD" and "VGChartz" as plausible arguments with the same rehashed list of games coming. One thing that really gets under my skin about fanboys; when someone (Player A) who owns the current console set speaking their mind of what they like/dislike, you have those same few people (Group A) who will argue to no end about why Player A's points are considered "fanboy" just because they don't agree with what Group A agrees with (Group A being the PS3/360 fan force on this site).
Can be great fun at times when they post there opinions because its just so funny to read(take a look at the $50 bucks offer thread lol) but other times then they can be down right pain in the [email protected]@. LOL.
I use to be a TG16 fanboy back in the day. Sadly, that didn't last long hahaha.
Keiths Courage, Vigilante, Bonks Adventure, and I cant remember what other games I had for it, maybe just those but it was cool oh something Axe which was very cool, ah the good old days. bubbles to you for bringing back memories.
Hahha yeah, that game was cool for its time. Legendary Axe 2 was a little disappointing though, but not bad. Ninja Spirit was cool too, but wayy to easy. The dynamite weapon destroys all of the bosses like nothing. I remember my brothers and I going to ToysRus all exciting about buyting Fighting Street. When we got home, we found out it was a CD game and the only way to play it was to buy that freakin $300 addon! Depression... Finally after several yrs of saving up our allowance, we barely got enough to buy the Turbo Duo and finally got to play our terribly dated Fighting Street game.
Sony fanboys are the worst. They make no sense at all. At least Xbots have a reason to like the 360: Games.
Pay attention dude, this article is about you
Both fanboy factions like games, but I can say for certain that what divides them is not just which genres they like, but what they believe. I respect Sony fanboys because they believe that the best console is the one with the most genres, though most of them like japanese games. And even when 360 fans (not fanboys) like mostly western games, the fanboys believe that the Shooter, RTS and WRPG genres (namely, the PC game genres) are the best genres and only those make the console. These fanboys couldn't care less if a game of other genres showed up on their consoles; you know, theMart, Genuine, etcetera. I personally prefer PS3 because I don't like the Wii and I am anti-microsoft (though I do have a 360), but I would like my console of preference to have as many genres as possible to play. On the other hand, I know most Xbox 360 fanboys just want other games on their platform so it can "win", but not because they care. Sales of Virtua Fighter 5, and Devil May Cry confirm this hypothesis. VF5 outsold the "superior" 360 version on a 4 to 1 ratio even with a significantly smaller install base. Devil May Cry 4 is pretty much tied on both platforms, give or take, even though the 360 version, judging by how supposedly Xtards are "game buyers", how it has a huge attach ratio, and how the install base is bigger. GTA4 has been reported to have a lot of demand on PS3, sometimes even more than on 360, despite the lower price, extra DLC, and higher install base. Xtards only rejoice at the fact that it is No longer a Sony exclusive franchise, but not because they actually got it. Sales will further confirm the hypothesis. IMO, the Xbox brand is a cancer to gaming, the industry and the consumers, and both Microsoft and the Xbots would be a lot better on the PC. Microsoft would deliver a top notch online service for PC gamers, and Xtards would love it because there would be no RROD as Microsoft wouldn't be the manufacturer, and the genres they love would be there constantly, considering that there is always an install base on PC.
@ The Terminator - lmfao, Getpwned, GETS PWNED.
i think fanboys need to hate people like jack thompson and stop hating on other consoles because game critics dont care what console u own they wanna censor it. or maybe im the only smart person on here to realize that.
Fanboys must fight to the death or until there fingers get tired of typing.
so just stop being asshole fanboys and just be gamers for a change and just enjoy all consoles. they ll have something to offer
This article was brilliance. Undeniable brilliance. Props! I like both next-gen systems and I got a pretty good kick out of thinking of the insane fanboys that will absolutely despise this and want to sue n4g. Then they'll figure out that they actually have to leave their computer and enter the real world to file a lawsuit...
I agree with The Terminator.
about this site is that for some reason some people think there better than everyone else
It's the extremist like Nazim and Sammy M that are bad.
TODOS CHINGEN SU MADRE! EVERYBODY GO F*CK YOUR MOTHER! GO fuku tutti la tua madre! 每个人都去他妈的，你母亲！ 誰もあなたのお母さんにファック！ Go fack alle deine Mutter!
PS3 is the only true next-gen system the Wii and 360 shouldn't even be considered next-gen consoles. First off the Wii and 360 still use an old format called DVD which only holds 4.7 gbs of data or 9gb on dual layer disc, the PS3 uses Blu-ray which holds 25gb of data or 50gb on dual layer disc. The Wii has no hdmi port which is necessary for the future while the 360 has an hdmi port 1.2 and the PS3 has an hdmi port that supports 1.3a. The differences first off 1.2 supports 16.7 million colors while 1.3a supports over 1 billion colors. 1.2 cant use Dolby True HD or DTS HD Master Audio and it cant support 7.1 surround sound, while on the other hand hdmi 1.3a supports all that plus more. hdmi 1.2 can only support 1920x1080p60fps maxed out while 1.3a supports 2560x1600p60fps maxed out. An added bonus about 1.3a also supports x.y.Color and Deep Color which 1.2 dosent. 1.3a also has a way higher transfer rate and bit rate compared to 1.2. Also the 360 has 3 core processors which is old news considering Intel makes Quad Core Processors while the PS3 has the revoluntionary Cell processor which has 8 and the Wii has a weak processor we dont even nedd to talk about. The 360 or the Wii doesnt even have an HD movie playback drive the PS3 does. The PS3 is built stronger than both the Wii and 360 it can handle more heat and cold and still not break down. Also the PS3 firmware constantly upgrades the system and by far has the most multimedia compatibilities compared to the Wii and 360. The RSX GPU can handle DirectX 10 level details and graphics the 360 GPU can't. The PS3 is truly the only system worthy of being called next gen and is the most future proof console that ever existed.
ummm ok main event by u taking all this time to write that...whats changed are u getting paid to ad for sony??? y waste ur time if u know ps3 is next gen then u know its next gen ur not changing any minds
I personally liked the article about how "Uber" fanboys gives a particular system or a game a bad name but using F words is a bit extreme in my opinion. But then if it conveys the message..then i have no problem with it. But overall a good article. I also agree about waiting in line for the whole console..to some its a big thing for personally i think its a waste of time and money. first batch of systems are usually the most faulty and lack good software. Its better to wait a year after the console is released so that at least the console has a decent library of games to justify the console
I don't like fanboy's but I assume most are just kids who lack the art of grown up conversation, but you need to be able to tell the difference between someone who has an honest opinion and someone who is a fanboy, the PS3 upon launch for example had little to offer and was too expensive (am I fanboy for that opinion), now it looks promising, the Xbox-360 despite hardware issues has made a massive impact on the games industry forcing the other sides or Sony to really try hard to make sure there own services are going to be just as good, in a nutshell I now like both consoles, I don't like hype if it is not justified, the end results are usually lower then what we expected but let's be fair, is there anyone here who is not actually happy with the PS3 and Xbox-360 capabilities? personally I like where they are both at right now.
His first 3 or 4 paragraphs were convincing, but then he went on an anti-World of Warcraft spiel that was almost totally irrelevant. Man, and I thought I had some good anti-fanboy material for a few minutes.
it is stupid, and it shows how simple minded a person in, and what type of materalistic, and capitalistic society they live in, when the love and defense of a company, is what they spend time arguing. now im not saying that compaing the good and bad of a console is wrong, because its not, my friends have debated about which console has the better specs. almost everyone has preferencses whether it be sony microsoft apple ford coke, whatever. what i was condemming in my first paragraph thing, was the rabid and blind love of a company, much like some people have in the open zone, i just think its stupid to love a company, and take a personal defense whenever someone brings up a legitamate point or argument. just my opinion.
Fan boys make the world turn
