fanboys make it a habit to belittle those who dont share the same views as them. That isnt respectable at all. I can acknowledge someone who enjoys their platform but wont resort to criticizing them about their choice.

What is really funny, we are all on the same side. We all want fun entertaining games to spend out time and money on. Why does it have to be an issue if this person plays this system or that one? Play the games and just have fun.

This might not make much sense but the best way I see it is like in history when you had one kingdom fighting against another kingdom and yet both sides were doing it in the name of the lord. Go figure. It was the same lord
