    I know some people who were surprised that I didn't totally hate the X-Box, and until I explained it to them, they somehow felt the need to think I was stupid.

    I have seen fanboyism in its most raw form, and it sucks.

    Thats why I try to be as little of a fanboy as I can.

    To me fanboyism or whatever the hell you wanna call it is just people trying to justify their purchases because they can't afford the other consoles. That's just my opinion though, I could be wrong. Because no matter the system there has to be at least one good game on there that you would like to play. Hell the Jaguar had a FEW good games on it despite being a colossal failure. I know people would say that they wouldn't buy a system to play just one game, which justifies my statement about it all coming back down to the money. If they had system X and someone offered to buy you system Y or give it to you for free after they had all been out for a good amount of time and had built up decent libraries I doubt they would refuse it. Right now there isn't anything on the GC that justifies my spending $200 to get it but as soon as I see even one game that I want on there you can bet I'll be getting it. Every system has there games that won't be offered on the other systems that if you didn't have to pay for would be enjoyed by a lot of people.

    It annoys me to NO END when people write "sum 1" and all this internet lingo. I cannot believe it is easier to write "sum1" instead of "someone." In fact, I write "someone" faster than "sum1."

    Sure, assuming they can actually type with all 10 fingers and not using the pokey-pokey 2 finger method. I think it helps sort out the "Peepee Longstockings" from the rest of the world [​IMG]

    One of my bigest pet peves is mispeled wurds in chat rums. Cant peepul lern how to spel? Cum on!
    Seriously, it just makes you look stupid and it makes it twice as hard to actually understand what is being said. I have no respect for people in forums and chat rooms that fail to appreciate the importance of a)spelling and b)punctuation.
    And run-on paragraphs give me the willies too. Nothing harder that reading a 2 page, single-paragraph post that should be comprised of 5-6 paragraphs. Enough of this SH!T, I am off to the grammar.com chat room to vent my fury [​IMG]

    I'm only 16 and I know a lot of people who type all messed up. It bugs me to hell. I try to correct them or tell them that I can't understand it, but they do it anyway.

    I was in a chat room once and could have sworn the guy who was talking about how great the X-Box was was 10, turns out he was like 20.

    Fanboyism + Internet lingo = chats that sound like 10 year olds
