OP,

is this an example of fanboy?

How is my thread an example of a fanboy? It's a joke dude that doesn't discredit Nintendo in anyway because it's so far out of context to be even considered serious.

Again it's a joke that I would do for any console but WiiU is hot right now so I chose that. I'm actually considering buying a WiiU because it looks quite cool.

It is quite cool, and could be tasty if you got that bundle.

I think the OP is spot on!

And that every PC gamer is a fanboy considering this description ^^

Which would mean the OP can't be spot on and we have a contradiction in your post!

THE woerst case of fanboyism ^^

But not all PC gamers can call themselves part of the Master Race

you see, youre even fanboyic against other fellow pc gamers! awful, just... awful...

I'm totally part of that master race though.



So essentially what you're asking is why some people are dicks.

Because that's just how humanity works.

Incidentally, do not use this thread to call out other users as fanboys. In fact, don't use any thread for that. Don't do it at all, because 90% of the time you're wrong and the other 10% the fact that you are stating it is not helping matters in the slightest.

If you want an example of fanboy then some of you should read your own posts. You get so defensive lash out at other consoles thus acting like the very thing they claim to be against. Viscous circle you need to get out of.



I would call myself a Nintendo fan, but not an excessive one. I mean I owned every home console since the SNES (Minus the WiiU as of right now) and I bought a 360 this gen to try and experience all the games I wanted to experience.

I've been accused of being biased against Sony at times, but its not that I don't like the consoles, or the games. They're great. I just disliked the attitude Sony as a company, and legitimate Sony fanboys would display (From 2006-2008): "Our console will be the best, Nintendo has no chance, people will buy a PS3 without games, etc etc"

But I do believe that Sony has had a massive effect on gaming, and continues to do so. Same with Microsoft. I think they're both doing a great job in the gaming world, despite what some might say, but Nintendo will always have a soft spot in my heart, and I'll always want to defend them. The difference is I know when not to defend them, like when they fuck up. (Wii Online System, Abandoning Hardcore, etc)

What's wrong about defending your favorite company? I never understood why people get annoyed by that and more so when they call that person a fanboy.

You have every right to do that. Not a problem with that.



Forbes posted an article on 6 reasons to buy an Xbox 360 over PS3 http://www.forbes.com/sites/erikkain/2012/12/06/6-reasons-to-buy-an-xbox-360-instead-of-a-playstation-3/

This late into the console cycle, it makes me wonder if an article like this is really geared towards the consumers.



I walk the line between all around gamer and fan, I guess. I LOVE Nintendo but I'll openly criticize them when they do something wrong. I don't sugarcoat it. Heck, two minutes after my Wii U froze, I was making a thread about it. I love my 360 and play it probably more than any other console but I didn't even own an original Xbox, played my PS2 more than any console ever, and I've been gaming since the early 80's. There isn't a video gaming device that Sony has made that I haven't bought and I support them like you wouldn't believe (over 100 games for my PS1, over 100 for my PS2, over 10 games for my Vita, stood in line at midnight for a PS3, owning two PSPs, etc).

I think I take a stance when I see somebody saying something that isn't true because either they haven't played the competition or because they want to make something look better than it really is. I'm not a big fan of extreme arrogance, either.....but I look the other way when it comes to the 360 because of my personal bias.

I wear my loyalties on my sleeve.
