Why do people become fanboys?

Bruceongames says: "Firstly lets define what is meant by fanboy. What we are talking about is someone who has an irrational, emotional attachment to an inanimate piece of electronic equipment that makes them act in a manner that borders on the sociopathic and sometimes even crosses that border. Most gaming enthusiasts, even those who spend an inordinate amount of time and money gaming, are not fanboys."

People just like to over use it in gaming.

People are also fanboys about....

-Politics
-Fast Food
-Sports
-Women
-Movies
-Their Country

almost everything in life, if you really think about it.

Some people are just so brainwashed, by the theory that you DON`t Need to like something better than something else because it`s wrong.

I do NOT embrace this theory, I`m just a human being.

I think it has mostly to do with money. Fanboys want to believe their system is the best because mommy and daddy will only buy them one system. They HAVE to believe they can get all the best games by only owning one system, they HAVE to believe their controller is best, they HAVE to believe their online network is best...because it's all they have....and a fanboy is created.

More absolute BS from this uninformed person....How can you beleive you are not a fanboy when ALL YOU DO is consistently create stories that bash Sony? If you weren't one then where are all the 360 & Wii articles of equal caliber?

EVERYONE can verify your post and "article" history as biased in favor of the 360 while ALWAYS against Sony...Your baseless VIEWS (not facts) just prove yourself to be the worst kind of fanboy out there.

Oh and once again I will re-itterate ~

"That some no-name-blogger writes a story about how much he dislikes console X, that is not news."

That is taken from the N4g posting guidelines.

1.Lack of funds- They usually are confined to one console due to not having money for other better alternatives.

2.False sense of loyalty- Feel that they owe game companies something for past enjoyment.

Either case is sad just go where the games are at.

mariusmal3452d ago

yes i agree. it's just sad.

Oh wow, well said. Like I always said, loyalty in a system of currency is dubious no matter how you spin it. But such is the way with consumption and competition.
