this topic got locked because of a side topic that was taking place in the original thread that was derailing the conversation. i spoke with the mod who locked it, and he gave me permission to repost this thread, so here it is.
It's the guy who pops up without fail when discussing who had the best e3 showing. People are discussing the good, the bad, and the EA, and you always have some guy coming out saying something like this:
E3 IS NOT A TOURNAMENT WITH A WINNER. THE GAMERS ARE THE WINNERS. ANYONE WHO ARGUES ANY CONSOLE IS BETTER, OR THAT ONE IS SHIT, IS A COMPLETE LOSER. CONSOLES ARE NOT A COMPETITION. IF I COULD AFFORD TO, I WOULD OWN THEM ALL, SO I COULD PLAY EVERYTHING, AND EVENTUALLY I WILL.
This is a comment that I found while looking through the comments at n4g, and I wanted to share it with you guys because I see a lot of users spouting this same mentality. You can't even discuss who had the best e3 without somebody thinking they have this infallible and original answer that the gamers are the real winners. These people think they're sooooo much better than everybody else and they have the real, and only answer to, "who won e3?" In reality, this is a bullshit answer because it's going to be the same answer every year. The real issue we are discussing is did the company who had most favor with gamers keep the lead, and did the company or companies who are falling behind gain any momentum with their showing? Among other topics that go into determining who wins e3. This idea of ITS THE GAMERS is starting to wear on me because it's not a real answer, and it kills discussion.
If you're going to spout something like that, at least don't act like everybody is beneath you because they aren't buying into THE GAMERS WIN bullcrap. Of course we reap the benefits of all of this, everybody knows that, but we want to discuss which company is coming out of this with most gamers attention. It's such a simple concept and you people are missing it.
