Gamers despise COD fanboys almost as much if not more than console fanboys. I know I can't personally stand hearing someone utter that oh so provoking phrase, "It looks just like Call of Duty". However I am starting to notice that anti COD gamers can be just as annoying as the actual COD fanboys. Here are a few examples.
Yesterday I decided to get back into Killzone 2 because a few of my friends wanted to party up. Personally, it takes me a while to hop back into any online game. Killzone 2 is special because I always have to adapt to the controls every time I play. One of my friends was in a clan and he became frustrated when we started to lose in warzone. He told me over the Mic, "Go back to Call of Duty". That is pretty simple statement but alot of depth behind it simply because I hear it said to people quite often. When somone isn't as good as you in any online game. When someone isn't really good at all in a certain online multiplayer game; It does not mean they play too much call of duty. There are some famous examples of course such as my experiences with Killzone 3 and Crysis 2, but not everyone who struggles at any
point during any online match plays too much Call of Duty. That is a very ignorant statement.
More recently, over the past few days I looked at just about every article on N4G relating to MW3. I didn't even bother looking at the article as my eyes went straight towards the comments and with predictable results. Anyone supporting call of duty got several disagrees. Anyone bashing Call of Duty got several agrees. Seriously, fanboys are extremely annoying but not everybody who likes and plays call of duty is a fanboy.Honestly, Battlefield fanboys are making a rise when it comes to fanboys. In the articles I see relating to call of duty, the people posting remarks such as BF3>MW3 or any other kind of diss are always there in packs.
One of the biggest things we gamers hate about call of duty fanboys is when they bash other shooters for either being too similar to call of duty or being too different from call of
duty. But when we have anti call of duty gamers bashing anyone who likes Call of Duty does that really make them any better? When people assume that anyone isn't that good in a certain game because they play too much call of duty does that make it any better?
We gamers can purchase and play whatever we want. Sure there are better games out there. Sure there are beautiful worlds to explore, innovation to expand, and fun to be had; But at the end of the day, it is just a matter of opinion and opinions clash as false factual information when these pointless debates begin.
