My mother always told me that hate is a strong word only to be used when the situation truly calls for it. This is one such situation. Fanboys stink and are bad for the health of the gaming industry and here’s 5 reasons as to why.
"They are the inescapable scourge of every video game website and forum on the planet… fanboys. Have an opinion? They will attempt to rip you to shreds with false logic, denial and loud cries filled with clichéd leet speak. How do we defend ourselves against these Neanderthals of the gaming world? Well, you don’t. Let’s face it, they aren’t going anywhere. Your best defense is to try, no matter how difficult it might be, to ignore them. Ignore that part of you that wants to fill them in on just how stupid they really are because all it does is bring you to their level. After all, if you do give in, it’s the digital equivalent of slapping a grizzly bear in the face with a fresh salmon and they will maul you with idiocy and childlike name calling. If you don’t understand where we’re coming from here then you yourself might be a fanboy. All in all we can’t stand fanboys, in fact we hate them about as passionately as they blindly love their nerd-vice of choice."
