You’re probably wondering the reasons why I have made separate posts championing each console. The truth is that it was part of an experiment to see how different sections of fanboys respond. So, if you were one of those who fell for my clickbait I thank you. I shall try to explain the mindset of each fanboy in this post by console they support. Some of you may be able to relate, whilst some of you may be infuriated at the suggestions I make. I will list each set of fanboy in order of aggression, starting with the most aggressive and vocal first.
1. Playstation fanboys
It was a close call between Playstation and PC, with both being overly negative towards the Xbox post I made. The fact that the Xbox post was viewed over six times as many as the others shows the insecurities Playstation fans have. They take to the internet in force to show solidarity and to gloat about sales numbers but secretly are worried about the Xbox. Most of them made the decision to buy a Playstation on price alone.
A lot of these fanboys are worried about the lack of games Playstation currently has, despite the fact they bragged their system up for being ‘a games machine’. They make their present felt on the internet through Xbox bashing but will happily leave Nintendo alone because they are no threat. They secretly realize that the PC is a much better option than the PS4 so do not directly attack PC fanboys. This is mainly because their 1080p and 60FPS crappy argument isn’t valid against them.
2. PC fanboys
They believe that their system of choice is high and mighty and call console players ‘peasants’. This however contradicts their own statement of PC gaming being more affordable, surely they would be the ‘peasants’ if that was true. They are elitist and probably the nerdiest of all fanboys. They are guaranteed to lack social skills and spend way too much time on their beloved PC, this making them the most unattractive of the lot and probably what makes them so angry.
They refuse to acknowledge any other system and are some of the biggest a**holes on the internet. They are unhelpful and claim to not care about what other people play, whilst secretly being sad they are missing out some console exclusives. Have a read here to see the idiocy displayed and the desperate attempts to win you over. It may look like a friendly guide but the snide remarks and the overuse of the word FACT when it it’s actually an opinion is laughable.
3, Xbox fanboys
They would probably be higher, but as their console has seen its fair share of shortcomings, they are a bit more timid than the 360 days. They fully acknowledge the fact they are losing the battle but are delusional enough to think they will win the war. They are most abusive to Playstation fans and are usually accepting of others. The abuse stems from jealousy, jealousy at the fact they are behind on sales and that their more expensive console is not capable of the same things the PS4 can do.
Halo is a sinking ship so they no longer can use that as a weapon, instead they turn to Titanfall and blindly ignore the fact it’s not actually an exclusive. If you look around then Xbox fans are now few and far between in internet wars, they have gone in to hiding because they’re losing in sales. They try and fail to justify the high price tag of their console.
4. Nintendo fanboys
Yes, they still exist. They don’t get involved with the current console war because they’re not in it. They live in the past and long for the glory days of old. The reason they keep themselves away from such internet debates is because they acknowledge the Wii U as a failure and are vastly outnumbered.
They cling on to their tired old Red mascot and clearly don’t see innovation as a good thing. They realize that the whole world is laughing at them and try their best to just get along with everyone. I wonder what they must think when the Xbox vs Playstation arguments arise over graphical superiority, they can’t exactly contribute anything meaningful can they?
5. The rest of the world
The rest of the world wonders what the hell all the fuss is about as it’s just a gaming system. They encourage fanboys to seek professional help. They wonder why everyone is so insecure in their decisions and think that fanboys should get off the internet and grow up.
