Gamespot recently did an article on what makes a fanboy. This article is a test to see how much of a fanboy someone is. This includes such fanboy mentalities as Blind Allegiance and Spin, Bad News is Good News, and Paranoia.
Steven Colbert's character is a great example of this. He totally captured the guy who wants to believe his point of view despite any relation to the actual facts or logic. Fanboys act the same way. It doesn't matter if the chances of God of War 3 coming to the Xbox 360 are less than zero, this guy heard it on a forum so it must be true. To quote the great philsopher Steven Colbert:
"Keep your facts, I'm going with the truth."
