OP  9/29/12 6:22:50 PM#1

Yes ladies and gentleman. It is time to come out of the proverbial closet and say "I'm a fanboi". I genuinely and thoroughly enjoy a game and plan to play it for years to come. But I have to ask, what is the problem with this. What is so wrong about being a fan of something?

There are plenty of people who adore certain musicians, but are never reffered to as fanbois. Instead they are just called fans; a light, positive term. Yet if you like a game "too much" and are far too upbeat and not cynical or skeptical enough about its content then you are nothing more than a bloated fanboi who is 'blind' due to his over zealous love for the game. Are we blind or do we just see from a different perspective than you do. Is what either of us says the absolute truth?

What bothers me more than the whole word "fanboi" is the fact that no one claims themselves as one, but merely points the fingers at others. There are apparently millions of fanbois and no fanbois all at the same time. Just like there are millions of haters and concurrently none.

Is liking a game so evil; whether it be Guild Wars 2, Rift, or laws of physics help you if you like World of Warcraft(More recently reffered to World of Kung Fu Pokemon Craft). Or are people so afraid of having the great finger of the community pointed at them that they just stand on the fence and point at both sides all the while thinking "I should be safe up here".

What's worse is most people put themselves above most fanbois (and haters), and for what? Because you are indecisive and are searching for the "perfect true MMO" that clearly does not and never will exist. Nothing is perfect and not everything will suit your taste, but find something close enough and stick with it. I've seen people disown a game simply because this one tiny feature in this great big game doesn't suit their taste. Despite the fact that they enjoyed the rest of the game. All its great features, engaging combat, and interesting story be damned!

So yes, I am a fanboi. A big raging, blind, never know what im talking about, baseless, factless, tactless, over zealous, flaming fanboi. And just what are you gonna do about it? Post a long winded reply in which you quote parts of my post and beat my words senselessly about the head...or atleast that's what I'd expect.

Perhaps I'll be surprised.

people think fans of the game can't see things objectionally.. they feel because fans come and dispute points they make about not liking the game the fans have no rational reasoning and are "blind followers"..  happens with all games though...

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

As a side note, I found the definitions of fanboi to be very amusing: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=fanboi.  I especially found #4 funny, considering several signatures found on this site.

Fanboy and fan is not the same thing. Fanboys are basically delusional people, so emotionally invested in their object of admiration that they cannot see things objectively and will attack any and all criticism of said object.

could write a book:P where you want me to start pvp or PVE? either way game is still amazing..

first that sticks out for me is wish there was more options for weapon skills..  also BIG one for me is they really need an option to save multiple spec's so i don't have to respec everytime I want to run a dungeon.. anyway if anyone beleives i don't think this game has lots of flaws is delusional but who has time to talk about the real issues with all the crazy posts around here.

Fans? No. Fans are fine, they enjoy the game as much as anyone. And can readily accept and agree with other's negative opinions and still appreciate their game. But when you filter out information that doesn't fit the way you want it to and thus it becomes wrong or irrelevant, When the ONLY possibilities are those that work favorably for your game, When you find yourself saying, Sure there are things wrong, but then each and every time someone challenges your game, you are compelled to White Knight the topic, If you see an opinion you don't like and can't accept it without the need to correct, ridicule or silence the other's opinions, then you are a fanboi.


Holy Shit, I feel like this is a Jeff Foxworthy skit. Could even spin off a whole new thread

"You might be a fanboi"

It's the sad state of the genre. The next big title has as many threads discussing issues with it's business model than issues with the game itself.

That's nice and all...

...As long as you aren't one of those players who run around oblivious to their surroundings and always dropping their aggros on somebody else already in combat. See someone else fighting vets and multiple mobs near a commune skillpoint, sneak in, grab the skillpoint, and bolt. Never help folks back on their feet, but will freaking call out when they go down. Stand in enemy aoes as if they don't exist, and then run away from your combo fields. Pretty sure you get the point by now :)

More concerned about how you play in whatever game you're playing.

Being a fan of anything is a sign of weakness in my eyes.  It's one of those vaginal ways of thinking which is formenting around our  society.  The term fan comes from fanatic.  Being a fan or having that fan mind set, you'll (in most cases) never look critically at what you like, you back yourself into a certain corner and usually then fall into that type of human thought that has plagued our species forever; us against them.  Disliking or liking someone because they agree or disagree with your opinion on something. 

 

However,  what is really really annoying is how the terms hater and fanboi are thrown around so lightly.  People become reluctant to voice their opinions because people are going to say "ah mah gad fanboi".  They're cop-out words. They're the MMORPG equivalent of racist, hippy, right wing looney, left wing commie.  All these words which make people contrite.  They  really shouldn't have a place on these forums where the average age seems to be around 35.  These forums have shocked me how people much older than me can be so immature.

 

Liking something is not the same as being a fan.

^ this :)

What's interesting is there are fanboi's of entire MMO styles. For instance, I'm sure most of you have seen the blind, unwavering sandbox fanbois post on this site. No matter what game comes out and how many fun and interesting features are added, it's not good enough...because it isn't SWG or EVE...

 

There is no discussion or reasoning with them. It's very cut and dry. If your game is a themepark type game, then it's crap. Period.

Sadly, I get the feeling they would just claim that only Themepark players do that, and go on and on about how utterly superior they are in every way.

If you ask me they have every right to feel that way. Obviously arguing with them will go nowhere and will yield little to no meaningful outcome. At that point I say go find someone else to argue with and hope to science that they will bring meaningful conversation.

Additionally, it's fine to dislike the fanbois, but what happens when you become one or when you come close to being one. When you're in a situation where you are valliantly defending a game because you think it has viable merits to stand on? Will you be upset when someone comes to try and shoot you down saying that you are blindly following game X simply because they do not agree with what you say. I will say that satisfaction with a product despite its few or many shortcomings and being blind are two different things. Even most Apple fanbois aren't blind, though some are a bit too loyal and will shove their beliefs in your face more than bible thumpers.

Thing is we are all, to some degree, fanbois. We like game X or game Y and if someone attacks it we will more than likely be there to defend it. Whether we see things objectively is totally up to us. Thoug some "haters" will always say that you are blind and that nothing you say is objective...

I can't blame them for being jaded on the subject.How many quality sandboxes are there to quality themeparks? Some people want something different already.

Interesting because I have never seen it. All posts from us promoting the sandbox style has always been with reasons for its superiority over themeparks. Never seen someone say ThemeParks are bad just because.

Aerowyn,I want u to list one flaw of the game right now :)

could write a book:P where you want me to start pvp or PVE? either way game is still amazing..

first that sticks out for me is wish there was more options for weapon skills..  also BIG one for me is they really need an option to save multiple spec's so i don't have to respec everytime I want to run a dungeon.. anyway if anyone beleives i don't think this game has lots of flaws is delusional but who has time to talk about the real issues with all the crazy posts around here.

 

Oh damn, I'm taking a pic of this...haha, I'm just messin with ya

ha! :P

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg
