This article at gameplayer looks at the backlash against the new Diablo, and explains why the fanboys have got it wrong: "Yes, fanboys are entitled to share their opinions. But that's doesn't mean they know what they're talking about."
Every 360 owner, basically. You're all a bunch of losers.
fanboys aren't limited to one console dude. There are ps3, 360, and Wii fanboys out there. And they all suck.
I'm an Atari Jaguar fanboy. Haven't even played it before, but it's the sh111111t!
It is not humanly possible to be more hypocritical than that. dictionary description "hypocrite" Synonyms deceiver, dissembler, pretender, pharisee. A person who professes beliefs and opinions that he or she does not hold in order to conceal his or her real feelings or motives. See also (Bombibomb)
Yeah if someone doesn't think Diablo or Fallout 3 will be good because it's a little different than the ones before it, they should just shut up and not effing play it. I for one already have Fallout 3 reserved and can't wait. Some guy at quakecon told me he'd played it at E3 and that you can blow people's heads off and pick up fragments (eyes, ears, etc.) afterward. "<boner> YES!!!! </boner>"
How can you disagree with my boner??
One thing that really pissed me off a while back, while I was waiting for Diablo 3, I would check into Diablofans.com and there was an online community like I have never seen before. These people had been waiting for a Diablo 3 announcement for 2-3 years and everyday they'd read up on any little piece of information that could be possible evidence for diablo 3. And when those D3 rumors started pooping right before the WWI, all these new people started joining the forums, flooding it, which was fine. New people are always welcome. But the minute that D3 was announced and the first footage was shown, then those new guys started the b!tching about the graphics. Those faithful who had been on that forum every single day for years never got the chance to celebrate what they had waited so long for. Instead the stupid spoiled blizzard fanboys who heard about the game a week before the announcement and said "Oh gee, I've been waiting forever for D3!" couldn't be happy about an announcement and ruined such a good day for the true fans. Don't know if that relates to the story or not, but when I think fanboy, that story comes to my mind.
Yeah that sucks. People are noobs. They need to shut up and play GTA4 or something.
Hi, this is actually a comment for BabyStomper5000 though not directly related to his comment on the article but about his use of the term "noobs." I'm affiliated with the Organization for the Nonproliferation of Internet Slang or ONIS for short, and our goal is to halt the spread and use of internet lingo that have become a staple of forums and blogs all around the web and stand as a debasement to the English language... does this sound sort of legit to you? If it does use it on other people for fun and see if it catches...:)
after reading your paragraph i cant help but feel how po'ed you must have been. It reminds me of the times on N4g when someone makes an account that is a day old and then denounces the site as a ps3 only supporting site. I was here a year ago when over 100 comments would be only about how the ps3 was going to fail along with bluray. And it was news item after news items usually duplicates that were around 3-4 duplicates of a pro 360 article that hated on the ps3 This site posts news articles no matter what they are as long as they are submitted have you seen the stuff that gets thru? i mean cmon anyone who says this site is biased just needs to follow the simple steps and become a contributor. The reason why i dont leave this site is because it hates on everything of every console ;)
LOLZ LAWL LAWLZ h4h4h4h4h4h44h4h. Hmm... doesn't really sound legit but who knows, I'm too lazy to look it up so I'll take your word for it ;)
This is going no where fast.
Fanboys rule core gaming, devs make games to please the core by reading and paying attention to fanboy feedback. Casual not so much, there is no core fanbase there. It's the fanboy masses that realy decide how sequals end up.
Fanboys are fine.They are'nt that annoying.Trolls however should just STFU Defense Forces FTL
Who cares about Diablo 3, its a game for a dying form of gaming known as PC gaming. Only an idiot would now choose to spend thousands on a PC just for the sake of better graphics when consoles are now a lot better and cheaper this gen!
It is not cheaper to buy an office pc and a console compared to just a gamer pc (that can also be used for office work). Also, this gamer pc will play more games, the games are be cheaper, they are moddable, and they have a free LAN- and internet-multiplayer-mode. And last but not least there is a thriving indie gamer scene with thousands of free games which explore concepts that are not feasible in a market situation, because they fill a niche that does not interest the regular consumer (and would therefore not generate much revenue). You will never be able to buy Dwarf Fortress for a console.
I don't think all the naysayers are fanboys and some criticisms are valid in my opinion. In the end Fallout might feel too much like Oblivion and Diablo might feel to much like WOW. Granted both of the previous titles were good games, gamers who envisioned something greater for their favorite franchises feel somewhat cheated for the sake of mass market appeal.
This is true, but not having any sequel at all is much worse to me.
Yeah, I can agree with that to a degree. While I would say that I am a fan of games, I would never go as far as to mock a game in a series that I like before actually playing it. There is a saying that states, Game Play > Graphics. That goes for art direction as well. Now, I can't play a good game that looks horrible, I am a bit of a graphics nut but I will always give the game a fair shot and the benefit of the doubt. I see the new Diablo and like it. But that is because I like a little change and if the game plays as good or better than Diablo 2 the it will be a day one purchase for me.
Fanboys cry but will still go out and buy the same title/system in which they hate. Diablo three looked absolutely cool to me from the videos. Who cares if it lost the gothic dark look. That look stemmed mainly from limitations in the engine at the time. Now that they have the technology to improve the look and give you more diverse environments it looks better then I could have imagined. At least they didnt completely change the feel of it. Diablo 3 is going to rock. On to fallout 3 I have played and still own both Fallout 1 and 2. Both of which are near and dear to my heart. Having said that I have no fear that Fallout 3 wont be good as well. From the vids and previews it looks like they have retained the over the top violence. Now let's hope it still has the same funny satire of american life which the original 2 did so well. If bethesda pulls that off then I will be more then satisfied. Also from what I read it's a massive game so you can have a good long sit down with a rpg for once this year. People who are downing these two games are fake cause just like me they will be there on day of release to purchase.
blah blah blah i have both systems, PS3 60GB, xbox360 elite, and just because im smart enough to see the PS3 is a far superior console does NOT make me a damn fanboy.
