Why are Nintendo fans so defensive?

#1coolxalPosted 9/14/2013 1:39:10 AM
Any comment or topic that has any negative news about the Wii U, despite the news being facts and statistical data, is met with troll responses.

About 90% of the comments on this board are by "Cool Story... Golden Maven".

Because the PS4 and Xbox One boards are totally different, right?

Its only when it's the same negative articles posted at least half dozen times by the same accounts.

This.

Also it gets really old seeing the same post by another person worded differently. Or the same article over and over again.

Negative or not, it gets kinda old.

Any fanbase is defensive and when you get down to it it's more or less how one presents negative news then the new itself.

It isn't what you say, it is how you say it.

Exactly.

defensive? what do you mean, DEFENSIVE?!
troll confirmed, close this topic sony pony alert

for real though, people are pretty hyper sensitive around here. and sure the PS4 and Xbone boards do the same, but i don't go there so i don't care. i go here so it does bother me that people are so quick to flip out about anything negative being brought up, as if genuine DISCUSSION and CRITICISM are somehow a thing of the past. so just being like, "the other kids do it too!" isn't an excuse. you can't just act stupid and keep doing it because someone else it.

then again it doesn't help when you have posters like Murderstorm and Techsupport frequenting just to say the same stupid crap over and over with no room for reason in their brains.

overall any modern console board is just gonna attract the lowest common denominator in large amounts. classic console boards are better in every way, except they're just less active.

No it's really not, this board has proven that wrong so many times.

Well the fact that one is pretty much called every variation of ''moron'' if they so much as hint that they enjoy the console or are excited for a game does tend to get a bit irksome.
