360s lead on PS3 makes being mad impossible. Cant be mad if im winning :P. 

Basically leaving yourself wide open to the butt of all jokes if / when that tide changes. 

Good luck!

Its worked for 7 years and I bet that when it happens, the gen would be over and it wouldnt mean a thing :)

Do you not realize, however, just how hypocritical you sound in here when you invite people to visit your YouTube channel?

To sum it all up.......they act smug and superior, living like its the PS2 days, oblivious that Sony is now last place, losing billions, and lost its 3rd party edge.


How so? Specifically, what do they say or do?

this should be interesting.

Get it all the time on my YT channel. But its the constant acts of saying every fault the 360 has, old or new, taking every piece of negative news and blowing it out of proportion. Overhyping EVERY exclusive, expecting each one to be AAA, giving no thought to realistic scores or sales projections. They always tell me PS3 has the best exclusives and games, but when I point to them the sales performances of some games like Starhawk, they give me the "sales dont matter".....when it counters their notion that PS3 gamers love their exclusives and therefore in theory should be buying them in greater numbers. Furthermore, when a game doesnt get AAA, which is pretty often when you hype EVERY one AAA, they forget about it. They act like they never hyped it, it never happened, but then they move on the the next exclusive coming out and hype it AAA. Its a smugness.........talking trash about a console thats beating them.....but they are totally oblivious to that. 

You could accuse me of those. But 360 fans are low in numbers. PS3 ones arent. 360 fans, or at least me, realistically predict sales and metascores. Im trying not to be too elaborate here. Ive been around the block. Im literally "The" 360 go-to fan on YT. Been there for 3 years. 3500 subs. An audience that far surpasses any following you can get on a forum. I know what my supporters act like but I especially know what my haters act like.

You strike me as a sheltered person, unwilling to see or acknowldge the seedier fans of the internet, dismissing them as a vocal minority. I prefer to acknowledge what we have, not playing the "ignorance is bliss" card. 



I think its pretty sell known that YouTube users are the scum of the internet. (Or at least they act as such because of no moderation). Those people should be ignored. They are truly of lower class.

I'm interested....what is the name of your YouTube account?

Being anonymous allows people to show their true colours. In forums many people are forced to curb their true feelings. You get little "real" feelings. I like YT for the massive audience and especially people telling me how they "really" feel. And that sir is more valuable then any forum post. 

GeneralMLD. Now keep in mind my channel is meant to entertain, as is the point of YT, mixed in with semi-genuine opinions. But the biggest mistake is that people assume im like this in the real when in reality when my computer is off im a totally different person. My real self. Youd probably say I was a friendly, social, personable guy :)

Point though, is that I have been around, seen literally thousands of unmoderated opinions, ive literally blocked hundreds that flooded my channel comments with unintelligible insults. I know what im talking about. 



In forums, you don't have to curb your feelings. You just have to be respectful for the most part. You can still express yourself. And it looks like you contradicted yourself. You say YouTube is where people show their true feelings. But then you go and say that your YouTube account isnt your true character. You say its just for entertainment. Couldn't the same be said for every YouTube user? Except instead of conventional entertainment, they find entertainment by having random troll feats.

You could be right that the YouTube users are 'real' but that would mean they are just horrible people, rendering their opinion insignificant and quite frankly, stupid. And thus, they are worth ignoring.

True. But being respectful may sometimes mean holding back. There is no contradiction because I was referring to faceless posters. I have an alias but I am not anonomyous. I show my face and do have genuine opinions. But it is my channel so I do have to entertain at the same time. Apples and oranges.

The thread is about fanboys. Fanboys seek validation in their console of choice. AKA they win when their console/corporation wins. Just how it is. 

Doesnt effect me that someone loves another console. But when that person seeks to trash another (specifically one that is beating theirs) to make their loss more bearable, then I take issue.

It really doesnt effect me. 360s lead on PS3 makes being mad impossible. Cant be mad if im winning :P. 

Dude, are you serious?

You said "Fanboys seek validation in their console of choice. AKA they win when their console/corporation wins." and then you write "Cant be mad if im winning" after mentioning 360's lead on PS3. You said you're winning because the 360's winning, you are your own description of a fanboy. Again, you are a hypocrite.

But I am only one person. PS3 fanboys have the numbers. My point about the thread stands.

I invited Jay to visit my channel. Now the thread is suddenly about me, most doing the typical thing and assume its pure opinion, when its also at the same time about entertainment. Also neglecting that I post a vid only a couple times a month now. 

Also everyone is forgetting that I am just one person......constantly trolled by thousands of angry PS3 fanboys over the years and somehow it all rolls off my back. 

Ive been called every name in the book. Being called a hypocrite on a fictional console war has no bearing in the real world. Excuse me while I *dont* lose any sleep over that comment. 

My opinion on the OT, as well as the poll results, speaks for itself.

the worst kind is represented in every group,

it's the condescending, narcissistic, judgemental, knows-it-alls, who just love to piss all over other peoples enjoyment and like to litter threads with their pseudo psycho analysis of owners of certain consoles

funnily enough they often call themselves "anti-fanboys", when "fanatical" is the word most fitting for the style they pursue their own agenda in



The worst kind are those that show complete disdain for a company yet find themselves utterly compelled to comment about them, it'd be comical if it wasn't so tragic.



im a vg fanatic, basically Nintendo gamer, Sony gamer here and there, and PC gamer online

you could say im a Nintendo fanboy, and you wouldnt be wrong, i hate where the industry is going, thats why i stay with Nintendo, they represent the good ol days, while the others represent the change into blockbuster holywood esque developments, full of mature deep stories trying to create emotions and stuff
im against it all man

for me vg are for fun, nothing more, but nothing less
rant

answer
read my username

and is not just about Apple
worst fanboys imo are gadget freaks and tech geeks, i just cant stand them...

Poll is mildly flaming. One cannot judge a whole group by actions of one of few individuals.

On that note, individuals whose traits are a combination or all of these:
•One who pledges solidarity to the end
•Hypocritical views and matter-of-fact attitude
•Superiority complex

Value can only be debated to an extent as it is subjective.


Nice avatar!

So you're admitting that you're a hypocritical fanboy?

Beautiful.
