Fanboysim today is extreme
Why do we play games? This is a question that many have asked me to which I reply" We play it to enjoy them and step out of reality for example jumping of the empire state in liberty city or being kratos and killing a bunch of dudes to get that feeling of satisfaction or feeling like im on the top of the world". There are gamers who play games to go through this thrill ride and then there are fanboys that blatantly support one console and talk crap about other consoles. Finally there are extreme fanboys that are a plague to gaming and these individuals can ruin the industry that we love so dearly by continuing this attitude. Now how many of you have been spoilt in a game? Well from personal experience I have been spoilt in heavy rain which is probably one of the most awe inspiring games that i have ever played. This troll named bungie was going to over 30 gaming websites and posting spoilers in comments an forums, I was one of the unfortunate victims and therefore didnt buy the game. I later borrowed it from a friend and played it and enjoyed every minute of it. There must be many people like me that probably didnt buy a game because the story was spoilt especially for stry driven games like heavy rain. What is the point of spoiling a game for another person? These trolls should be in the shoes of the people that got spoilt to understand how horrible of a feeling it is to be spoilt in a game that you were anticipating for 3 years. Maybe it is that you own one console but does that mean you have to go and bash the other console just to have a feeling of pride and superiority. Dont hate on other consoles because every console has a weakness and if you do feel that particular console is not right fro you because it is too casual or too expensive or has too high a failure rate, then do yourself a favour and dont buy it instead of bashing it in the comments section time and time again. I was playing super mario galaxy 2 the other day and told a person that i was playing this game and it was awesome to which he replied," R u serious? playing a game without 60fps and no 1080P? how can that be fun!! I rather play some crysis on my high end Pc that the crap that is mario". Thats when i realised that gaming wasnt about fun anymore. It was all about fanboys boasting about their graphics and what not. I personally like mario more than most games on 360 or Pc. We play games to have fun. Did people not have fun in the 90s? Maybe the graphics werent as gud but games were as awesome back then as it is now. You can still be a gamer by owning a single console but not by proving that your console is the best of them all. Be a gamer not a Fanboy. btw im 15 years and this is my first blog post so bear with me if my english isnt good enough.
