Why E3 fans the fanboy flames

The days of E3 being a Mecca for gamers are behind us (as the show became a press-only affair a couple of years ago), but fortunately since then it's regained some of its splendour and it's still a very significant event in the gaming calendar. After 2008's somewhat lacklustre offering, it's a relief to see companies showing some really impressive stuff, albeit to a much smaller audience than in previous years.

But it's a show of a different kind as well – a show of force, a call to arms to the legions of loyal fans, a rallying cry and a re-arming of the troops in the console war. Bombastic rhetoric aside, consoles have always inspired an amazing amount of loyalty in the gaming world, and the near ubiquity of the internet has escalated the conflict from simple schoolyard bickering to raging flame wars that encircle the world.

#1 reason why E3 "fans the fanboy flames"

Because every news site, tech site, and blog site feels obligated to declare "______ stole the show at E3!" and "______ is the winner of E3!"

#2 reason:

Because fanboys get jealous when deep in their hearts, they know that the "other" console showed off better stuff.

I agree with you for once all you have to do is go into PS3 E3 articles and 360 E3 articles to see what you said. No 360 fans in PS3 E3 articles.

The article unfortunately mixes up gamers and fanboys. We must remember that most of the people out there are gamers, fanboys just hang around sites like these for attention and make their numbers look greater than reality. I'm getting kind of tired of the repetitive retarded comments we see on this site from them.

Now a days though its just hard to care. The consoles are here and have been not much to argue over.

So much other stuff going on in the world. Video Games are the least of peoples problems.

Im ready for next gen already or just different types of games. Developers have gotten so close minded its amazing that the industry is still here.
