When you log on to any gaming site now a days, you find yourself in a bit of disbelief. Fanboys flood the web with their ridiculous comments supporting their preferred console. Is this what our gaming community has really become? And what can we do to stop it?
Every time I log onto any gaming site in this present day, I find myself stuck in the middle of a cold war. Any where I go to try and find a decent conversation, there is always someone to butt in from the “opposing side” (as if they have a shrine of their favorite console) and say some of the most pointless things I have ever heard for no reason. Stuff like “oh the 360 hardware failure rate is high” and “but the PS3’s online is bad”. If someone has to talk crap about another console (especially when no one said anything bad and the person wasn’t talking to you) then that means you are self conscious about your own console purchase.
This has been going on for some time now and as easy as it is to ignore all of it; it still gets in the way and is annoying. It’s as if these so called “fans” of a console don’t even play their damn console and just patrol gaming sites all day talking bad about another console. They call each other the most immature thing on this planet and the sad thing is… they mean it. Things such as “fony droid” or “you’re an Xbutt” are just lame and make them sound like they are in kindergarten.
The Gamer Access feels the need to take action and speak on this whole “console war” situation by coming up with some solutions, because the whole “why can’t we just all get along?” statement isn’t working, and hasn’t worked… ever.
Suggestion One: Stop wasting your time writing articles about the other console because your beloved consoles “creators” don’t give a damn about you ok. We should be spending more time writing interesting things people actually enjoy reading. People are sick of hearing the same thing and “the reasons why YOU don’t like this or that about a certain console”. It’s very unprofessional and doesn’t do any good, for anyone.
Suggestion Two: Honestly, stop wasting your time debating about which console is better because before you know it, you will be 45 years old, with a degree in fanboyism. That’s not cool now is it? I mean there’s nothing wrong with holding a reasonable conversation with other gamers of your type, but getting aggravated and heated over something stupid is ridiculous. And I’m only looking out for the gaming community when I say this.
Suggestion Three: Be the bigger man (as in grow up) and do not contribute to the console war in a negative way. Things like the metacritics user score dropping for every huge title is only scratching the surface in this never ending debate of two great consoles. It’s like comparing Michael Jordan to Muhammad Ali, you just can’t win.
So when will all this bickering come to an end? I believe it will all be over when Sony partners up with Microsoft to make the ultimate gaming machine, but until that day, we should try to work together to save the gaming community before it gets any worse.
