Pokemon is no where close to being rabbid. Neither is Zelda. Dont know about Sonic.
When I say rabid, I mean rabid as in... insane to the point where your rational opinion or is not a valid one to another. Ending all debates in flame wars, senile arguments, or insisting on the opposition to take your side or else you will go insane. Take for example that topic "oot or kid icarus?" where many users never took my comment in consideration. Instead, they just told me how wrong I was in a very rabid fashion. Defending Ocarina of Time's honor like if the game was their boyfriend or girlfriend. I carefully explained why I thought Ocarina of Time may not be a suitable game to start with in this day in age since there are people out there who do not understand retro gaming as well as many of you on the boards do. I apologize if I don't agree with you, but you guys are a bad example of what I used to think was an awesome fanbase.
Try to say something, anything negative about it on the PS3 board and watch as the white knights move into formation and call you a racist/ameriboo (yes, they actually use this word), and assume you are obsessed with FPSs and WRPGs. The fandom is the biggest circlejerk of Japan worshippers I have ever seen.
