Editorial: We're All Fanboys

Kombo writes: "In the world of gaming few words are as reviled as "fanboy." When you think of this label, your mind immediately goes to vitriol-spewing message board hacks, whose entire well-being seems to be wrapped up in telling everyone else how wrong they are about their opinions, and how only the console this individual happens to own is worth the time of day. Indeed, these are true fanboys, the archetypes of hatred, but they're just the beginning. You see, every single one of us, from these crazed nut jobs, to your most favorite and "impartial" games journalist, is a fanboy."

No sir, I must wholeheartedly disagree...we all know the 3DO is the best. :)

bgrundman3700d ago

You could not be more right with the 3DO. It was far too much ahead of it's time... :( LOL

Isaac3700d ago

You are talking about the same console, the Xbox 3D0


RKRigney3700d ago

I'm not... I like all 3 current consoles. And a lot of people just don't care. Like my grandma. She's an Oprah fanboy, though.

aubradley3700d ago

Hehe, a discussion of Oprah fanboyism really would have rounded things out. As it stands though, I'm a bit partial to the PS3 myself even though I own all the consoles and handhelds. Sony just has some strange voodoo power over me I guess.

bgrundman3700d ago

There is something good that can be said about all of them. Every program you play on a console, was developed under Microsoft... In Windows. Never forget that, because either way Bill Gates wins!

Covenant3700d ago

Don't the world of Futurama, Oprahism is a mainstream religion...

eagles19903700d ago
