Annoying types of fanboys.

Hello and welcome, today I will be talking about annoying types of fan boys that you usually find on gaming forums, news sites and YouTube etc... I will be choosing the most annoying types of fan boys that of course you may have encountered some of them, so without further ado, let’s start.

Neutral Fan boy: Ahh, the neutral fan boy, hate them or love them, they are always there. They like to deceive people into that they actually own Multiple consoles and pretend they prefer them all when infect they prefer a console over the other. They usually provide evidence in their comments for example “I have both console but I prefer Console X", they usually get defensive when someone diss their preferred console and usually they don’t react when someone diss their other less-preferred console.

Double-agent Fan boy: These fan boys usually like to troll people and give a bad name to a certain console community. This might be confusing but they say that they are fan boys of this console and like to troll other console fans into thinking that fans of that console (the console the troll "owns") have a bad community. Usually the troll is a fan boy of another console and he act as if he was a fan boy of another console. Sorry if that was confusing, English isn’t my first language so here is an example screenshot that explains everything :

Dudebros: when you think of dudebros, you think them as suburban males, usually 16-25 years of age, hailing from anywhere, USA. Characterized by their love of College football, pickup trucks/SUVs, beer, cut off khaki cargo shorts, light pink polo brand shirts (with collar "popped"), Abercrombie & Fitch, Hollister gear, and trucker hats. Favorite bands include, but are not limited to, O.A.R., Jack Johnson, Dave Matthews Band, Avengened Sevenfold, The Fray, and often crappy radio rap (i.e. Nelly, Dem Franchize Boyz, D4L, etc.). Dude bro's are incredibly insecure in their manhood, which makes them: insanely jealous of their girl friends, overly macho, and laughably homophobic. currently, there is no cure for being a dude bro, they usually play games to play Call of duty and madden games. ( credit goes to BlackKid200 on ign forums for this accurate description)

Call of duty fanboys: keyword: fanboys not fans. mentally retarded "gamers" who usually say that COD created the FPS when infact it clearly destroyed it. They usually compare FPS games to COD andif it have similar gameplay or setting , they say it's a ripoff of COD. When they say another game that has shooting in it sucks because it isn't like COD, regardless if 1st or 3rd person. When they only play COD games and consider themselves as "gamers"

These are the types of fanboys that i find most annoying of the bunch, this is my first blog or first attempt lol so sorry if it was too short.

Pre-determined: These guys have already made up their mind. Whatever company, console or game they favour, they will continue to favour. Any news about their allegiance, good or bad, will be twisted into a good thing somehow, and news about their enemies will at best be something their own already does just as well in their mind.

Insecure: The people who need validation from critics and media that the console or game they bought was a good purchase. By no means have they made a bad choice in pre-ordering a bad game, or buying a console that didn't live up to their expectations. They will focus on the same arguments over and over again on why it was a good choice in the first place, and attack everyone who thinks otherwise.

Media-blind: They have no original thoughts. They have a favourite company, critic or gaming site, and whatever they read there becomes their religion. They will spread misinformation and thoughts based purely on what others before them have said, and won't do any research or find any original sources on their own. They can sometimes be reasoned with if you provide a good argument, but they will always look to others to find out what they should think.

Seppuku: Individuals who are secretly members of the fanboyism world, but choose to complain and shed light on individual fanboys to hide their true allegiances.

See also: self-loathing.

And of course, before someone gets the wrong impression, no, this was not directed toward the author of this blog, but actually toward those loyal to say, Grand Theft Auto who are just as bad as the rest of the fanboy world, but refuse to acknowledge they are one and instead, complain about fanboys.

I was under the impression that all fanboys are annoying! The worst that I can think of though, are the one's who are never wrong. To me that means that the fanboyism has festerd so long unchecked, that major surgery is required to stop the disease from spreading, which on this site would consist of a ban.
