I seriously despise fanboyism and by that I mean those guys that worship the likes of Nintendo, Microsoft, Sony, PC's and won't give the other systems a chance and will spew out crap about how their system is superior when really it isn't. Those people are cancerous to the gaming community, I don't call myself an Xbox gamer or a PC gamer, I call myself just a gamer. If you are willing to try out the other consoles or have tried out the other platforms then this doesn't count you.

I was watching some videos on YouTube earlier and you just see how stupid some of these guys are, some guys were saying Xbox One was better than PC because it looks nicer and because you can plug it in to a TV and play on your couch with a controller while PC gamers sit behind a desk hunched over their keyboard on a small monitor but when you say you can do the exact same on PC's and some because you can use literally any controller known to man to play (I found it pretty funny because I use a desk to play my consoles and PC because I actually find it more comfy and the resolution is much clearer on a smaller display). He then called me stupid and said why would you do that? and then when I watched more of the video the guy says about motherboards and says a good motherboard is going to cost you $900...I literally facepalmed so hard and the worst part is he is not the only one and it's embarrassing. The last thing I'm going to mention is them calling the consoles the best media system because it has games, apps and a browser, another stupid point when trying to compare to PC considering PC is biggest media system of all time. Why talk utter crap about something you don't know about at all?

Now moving on to the PC elitist fanboys,
These guys irritate the living hell out of me, they rip others for enjoy consoles and if they see anyone enjoying it they'll start saying how much better their rig is and granted it is but some of these gamers don't want to deal with hardware even something as simply as just swapping a video card out for a new one, these guys just want something simply and there's nothing wrong with that. Not to mention the hypocrisy considering most of these guys will have gamed on a console before PC so they shouldn't be crapping on these either, it's like when you see a new console you immediately have to say how bad it is and how inferior it is but of course the consoles are overpriced. Even though they're not compareable, if you do compare the two platforms. Compare a Alienware PC to a console and by that I mean a company selling it, I built my PC and it cost me around £950 (after current upgrades) and considering if I had bought this from Alienware pre built then I guarantee I would've had to pay Dell around £1.3k atleast and it goes same way with consoles with these companies selling them esentially pre built in a non upgradeable system.

Overall I just hate fanboyism, we're all gamers.

I was actually talking to my roommates about this not even an hour ago lol, being a fanboy is so stupid and im guilty of kind of fanboying PC gaming at times but I look back and think how stupid I was. THE ONLY TIME I will "hate" on console gaming is when a game comes out for all platforms and the PC version at release is shit BECAUSE of the console port. ie LA Noire, Batman Arkam Knight, Saints Row II, GTA IV, Need for speed the run etc, theres a shit ton and its annoying that these games struggle to run on PC because of limitations of consoles, however I guess this is an issue with the devs and not the console itself but its annoying regardless. But whatever, not a big deal I just wont play those games. OTHER THAN THAT bullshit, yeah I agree being a fanboy is stupid. Really fanboying anything like music is just corny.

Oh honestly I agree with you there, I don't think there's anything wrong with disliking exclusives. Exclusives suck, if they didn't exist and all games were released at the same time across every platform I may game on PC more than any other system. Fanboys do suck in any situation but in gaming it irritates me the most!
