"There is a lot of "fanboy" hate in the gaming community and I really don't understand why. What's wrong with a "fanboy," and why do people hate them so much? It's really interesting if you think about other companies outside of the gaming world; they too have what the gaming community conceives as "fanboys."
There are "fanboys" for every system out there. From the original Nintendo, Sega, and Playstation, to PC gaming, Xbox, Xbox 360, PS2, PS3, and Wii; they all have groups of "fanboys." There are people out there who love their Wii, they wouldn't give it up for anything, and these Wii "fanboy's" will bash anyone who claims the Wii is useless and utterly dismal. The same is true of any system in the market today. Is this a bad thing? No, I don't believe so. Unless, however, one's love for a certain system makes them bash other systems irrationally; and this happens all too often. I hate when an excuse to disprove somebody's idea is simply, "well they are a 'fanboy'." It's such an invalid argument it enrages me; so maybe there should be "fanboy" hate."
