Has a fanbase ever ruined something for you?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Has a fanbase ever ruined something for you?

I was going to say no. But then it hit me. The "Blue Ocean" fanbase for the Wii killed Nintendo for me. I used to pretty a pretty hardcore Nintendo (GC was incredible for me) fan, and the Wii had some good games..... but when I saw that E3 with Wii Music I knew Nintendo's days of being revelent with the general gaming populace were numbered. Its really sad.

I own a Wii U, only play it once in a blue moon. Keeping it until Zelda releases. If Zelda is a fail I will be completely done with Nintendo.



End of 2009 Predictions (Set, January 1st 2009)

Wii- 72 million   3rd Year Peak, better slate of releases

360- 37 million   Should trend down slightly after 3rd year peak

PS3- 29 million  Sales should pick up next year, 3rd year peak and price cut

The Melee Fags that claim every other Smash Bros sucks and Melee is their Lord and Savior

I love Melee, but these kinda people ruin it for me

Melee was the best. I never tired of it. Brawl was too slow and I tired of it incredibly fast.

Big parts of this forum.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Yes.



Sanic. Though the Adventure games are the only thing I care about, the fanbase killed off any remaining interest I could've ever had in the franchise ever again...

...'till SA3 comes out. #BELIEVE



I'm now filled with determination.

Fan bases and console loyalty has killed the social aspect of gaming for me

Sony fan base(the pro die hards) are very annoying. It's hard to enjoy or have a good conversation with them. It's as annoying as the people who use ''I am batman'' for anything Batman vs -insert person here- on who would win debates.

Then Nintendo fan base annoys me(the pro die hards). This is because Nintendo could tell them they just skinned their cat alive and they'd still find some way to condone it and say its ok because its Nintendo.

I guess I could just say complete fan loyalty(the live or die for the company type people) in general annoys me about the gaming community in general today. People wave the flags of a specific company,while talking down on other companies because it makes them feel ''accepted'' or ''cool'' like they're apart of a frat or something. When In actuality all 3 companies have something good to offer to consumers.

The people above ruin the fun of gaming for me. I feel they're a minority,but the minority is the most vocal.


Couldn't have said it better myself good sir!

"Has a fanbase ever ruined something for you?"

No, I am not a hipster. I do not lose interest in things just because they are popular. If I am a fan of something, it is because that something stands on its own merits and has earned my appreciation. The actions of individuals within its particular fandom is entirely separate from what they are fans of.



Yes, Sony fans ruined my life when they supported Playstation and made my beloved Sega leave the hardware business.
