In this video, I discuss why the fanbois don’t get it.
#1: Fanbois miss the broader context.
Fanbois tend to advocate one game to the exclusion of others. That’s short-sighted. It’s important for multiple games to be successful at any point in time. The more success stories there are, the more investment will funnel into the industry, and the more games will be developed, which is give us more choice as consumers.
#2: Fanbois blame other gamers for the failure of games.
This is terrifically illustrated by the ad hominem rant I share in the video. It’s the responsibility product company to deliver a great product. Don’t hate on the playas!
#3: Fanbois slap the label “hype” on new games.
Moreover, fanbois accuse other gamers who are playing or switching to new games as chasing hype, instead of recognizing that these new games may appeal to other players based on their merit or functionality.
Let me know what you think :)
P.S. I’ll never call any of you a “flakey ass gamer”, even if I disagree with your opinion.
