I've never met anyone IRL that hated on Nintendo. Are the fanboys exaggerating?

Every-time Nintendo does something bad or incompetent Nintendo fanboys come out with the "well it's just cool to hate on Nintendo for no reason".

But how many people here have actually met real people that legitimately hated on Nintendo?

I've met tons of casual dudebro FPS junkies and even they when I asked them about Nintendo said they loved them and often added "I have a DS".
I was a hipster way before it was cool.

I've met one, though he was more anti-Wii U than anti-Nintendo. He even has a 3DS.

I've met people who don't care for Nintendo, and I know one person who thinks Nintendo is kiddy (yet seemed to enjoy himself when actually playing the Wii U), but I've never seen anyone actively rag on the company.

The internet is the epitome of exaggerations, I wouldn't pay heed to a few individuals that crave attention.

Most people aren't anti Nintendo, they're usually anti anything DS and beyond, which I've met a lot of people like that.

Online it's easy to spot haters.

Go work at GS and you'll meet them. Anti Nintendo to Anti Modern Nintendo definitely exist. Most people with XB/PS that come to my store look down on Nintendo for being kiddy. Me being a 27 year old Nintendo fan gets me plenty of weird looks in the store.

I don't care though. I kindly point out how childish video games are to non gamers in general, regardless of playing GTA or Pokemon. If that doesn't change their tune I bring up sales. That usually ends the conversation.

I've never met an Anti Nintendo person. But I have met people who hate the Wii, not the Wii U though.
