This thread irritates me in the way "PS3 fanboys are the worst"-topics do.
A minority of the fanbase are very vocal and thus some people see the whole fanbase as idiots.
You know what, I'm sick and tired of this, I am just a gamer who happens to prefer Wii but I'm not some fanatic who praise Nintendo everytime they open their mouth. I don't lick Reggie's toes.
Some Nintendo fans really are annoying in how they drop all logic and sense in defending their God and take every bit of criticism against Nintendo as a terrorist attack. I hate it, not only is it annoying to see these people use the company I love just to defend their own egos, but it makes some people think all Nintendo fans behave like that, and we get "Nintendo fans are ignorant", "Nintendo fans are blind", etc.
(This can be applied to the fanbase of Microsoft and Sony as well.)
Something else I'm tired of hearing is that I'm ignorant or an idiot for being satisfied with the library my console of choice have. I'm perfectly fine with the games I can get for the Wii, and I'll probably not have enough time to play through all the games I want before this gen is over. That's just me, it's because of my taste in gaming.
Everyone will not be satisfied in owning only Wii though, I'm fully aware of that, I wouldn't be satisfied in owning only a 360 or a PS3 because I want to play Metroid and Zelda, but again, it's because of my taste and I won't hate on other people for not sharing my opinion. That would just make me look like an idiot and show how limited I am.
End of meltdown. Now I'm gonna have some bitter cake.
Clap, Clap, Clap.
I agree with you, is only a small fraction of nintendo fans that are acting this way, and I really like the way you presented this and your reason to having a WII is the right one in my opinion. Also Im glad that you showed me that not all the Nintento fans in the forums are acting the same way. thanks It gives me hope that this nonsense will stop someday. I apologize to YOU for what I said because you are not like that but honestly Im tired of every topic being about the WII third party situation and how the WII deserves every game known to man, when so many good things are happening all around.
Gamers love your console and buy you console if you like what it has and forget about everything else, this is a hobby and we are supposed to enjoy it
