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.
