The Fanboy Mentality
I read a lot probably too much and the one thing that keeps coming up no matter what site I go to, is the whole game system #1 is better than games system #2.
To be honest with you as I always try to be, it doesn’t really matter which one is better. I have no fight to win here and bones to pick with anyone or their gaming console for that matter. I love to game on a lot of different platforms. I am willing to try anything and these next generation look pretty sweet.
I have heard people calling me a fanboy of PC gaming before, well I guess you could say that. I do use my PC for gaming more than any console. As far as being a fanboy I use my computer as a tool for the most part, which is something I can’t do on a console.
I like the PC because being an engineer I like to tinker with new parts and different configurations. Sorry that’s in my blood.
I’m not knocking them.
Now people say this is better than that, based solely on what they bought to justify it.
I will never have the best computer, but it suits my needs and that’s all that I ask for out of it. I really wish I could hear more of this out of consoles gamer crowd, but I think I’m barking up the tree.
For some reason they console gamer crowd love to debunk the others game systems achievement, à la cold war style. Disinformation, threats, and flame wars in forums. What is going on here?
Next Generation Consoles
With each new generation of new consoles come farther divide in the consoles gamers. This is better! No that’s better! It’s like having a conversation with a 5-year-old.
The only people laughing about this besides a few people who are watching from the sidelines are the console making companies. They have an audience that is being held captive by only being able to play certain games on certain machines.
I hear this a lot I only bought this game console to play this game. I can say this was me for the PS3, but I grew into it I really liked a lot of the PS3 only games.
I don’t consider myself a fanboy of anything, I look at most everything gaming with an open mind. I wish more people had this mentality.
So today I ask you, are you a fanboy?
