I had a conversation go something like this in a chatroom:
Me: I was neither impressed by Microsoft’s or Sony’s presentation at E3, and the Nintendo one was great because it gave us new games that we want to play.
PS3Fan: Sony’s kicked the shit out of all the console companies at E3. The 360 is a broken piece of shit, and the Nintendo Wii is useless.
Me: Considering, the PS3 game line-up is way disappointing in past years. The 360 will have twice as many games I want to play. That’s just my opinion.
PS3Fan: The PS3 has all the games people want to play, the 360 has had absolutely nothing except ports of popular PS3 games.
Me: What? That isn’t even possible. Most games are ports of 360 games.
PS3Fan: Doesn’t matter. Eventually the 360 and the Wii will perish to the magnificence of the PS3 and Sony will rule the console sphere.
Me: Do you even understand how we don’t want that? How we want Microsoft and Nintendo to remain decent competitors to Sony?
PS3Fan: Fucking 360 fanboy! Two of the consoles have to die, and it’s not the PS3 that’s going to go the way of the dodo.
Me: Listen, you’re ignorant of economics, so I’ll spell it out for you – as long as Microsoft and Nintendo are there, they create these price wars that keep Sony from charging you $2000 for their new PlayStation. And with each weird technology one or the other brings to the table (3D, motion control, etc), the others figure out how to make it work for gamers.
Me: As long as all three keep doing well, all three will keep making cheap, fun stuff for us to enjoy.
PS3Fan: LONG LIVE SONY DOWN WITH THE MICROSOFT/NINTENDO EMPIRE FUCK THE PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT ANYTHING BUT THE PS3!!!!
And this is why I hate talking to fanboys. Especially PS3 fanboys. I realize that Sony has created a group of wannabe American Otaku just for themselves, and those pricks are the ones ruining the fun for the rest of us gamers.
Luckily, Apple fanboys are merely irritating. One guy kept doing this every minute or so:
iFan: BUY A iPAD AND JOIN THE FUTURE. BUY A iPAD SO APPLE CAN CONTINUE TO MAKE THESE WONDERFUL TOYS!!! GO TO WWW.blah.blah.applesomething.
I mean, at least the Apple guy was a bot.
