Fanboy behavior might be encoded in our DNA, but obnoxious fanboy behavior probably isn't.
Probably they already took over smaller gaming forums and communities.
No. They make up an incredibly small part of gamers at large. Consumers rule the industry. Always have, always will.

You'll really only find this type of behavior online. In the real world it's very uncommon.
i would hope so. never met anyone who considered themselves a nintendo supporter or a xbox supporter or a playstation supporter. i have many friends who say they like playstation games and nintendo games and xbox games. gaming is a medium, not some loyalty once you start identifying yourself as a certain brand gamer you're already gone and removed from reality.
Not the world, but unfortunately the interwebs.
No. They only ruin the perception of gamers as a whole.
Sounds like the apocalypse to me.
