Are You a Raging, Mindless, Inconsolable Fanboy (Or Girl…)?

Fanboys. We love them. We love hating them. We often love being one. Sometimes, we just flat-out hate them, no love included. Oh, and occasionally, we hate being one, too. (Ouch, Microsoft is doing what with the Xbox One?) For ease, we’ll stick to the term fanboy, but let’s not discount those raging fangirls out there, we know you exist. The big question is though, boy or girl, what causes this phenomenon?

Are you a fanboy and you don’t even realize it? Is there some kind of test we can take to gauge our fanboyism and stop embarrassing ourselves as we dogmatically defend our favorite companies, TV shows, games, etc… when people criticize them? (They’re clearly just fanboys, anyway…) This is The Ultimate Gamer’s guide to the fanboy. (Culture)

I hate them all the time, they are pathetic children.
