I'm usually pretty level headed when it comes to this fanboy stuff. I love my Nintendo, and am not above tweaking fanboys for other consoles from time to time, but its always in good fun.
But I am truly and utterly sick of Killzone 2.
The PS3 has been out for over 2 years now. And ever since, PS3 fans have been looking to one game or another to save the system - Lair, Heavenly Sword, Uncharted, and so forth. None of them have done it.
But that whole time, Killzone 2 has been there, and been hyped as one of these savior games. The difference is that those games had the decency to actually be released and forgotten about. the whole time, KZ2 has been there, and the hype has simply gone into overdrive.
This is a sequel to a mediocre game that sold around 2million copies on a console with a user base well over 100m strong. Yet somehow fanboys have picked it as The Game of The Forever. We're constantly getting new KZ2 threads forcasting its brilliance, and how its the bestest graphical game ever. It's gotten so bad, I fear there will be mass suicides if it gets an 85 on MetaCritic.
Its this mixture of hype and delusion and time that has made it impossible for me to see the words "Killzone" without uttering a groan.
