    Nice find. I don't think I am any of them to be honest.

    A fanboy? To a game or game-related item such as a character?

    I don't think so.

    *looks at every post he has ever made*

    Well maybe a little bit...

    I don't go in for fanboyism. I don't really understand the point of being loyal to a particular company over another, when all any of them want is your money. If a particular game or console isn't very good I won't hold back on criticising it, regardless of console or series. Different publishers/developers have their strengths and weaknesses, which is why I think it's best to play the field. Take Nintendo for example: as a developer I think they make some fantastic games, but as a publisher I think they're arrogant, petty, extremely rude to European gamers, and prone to ridiculous arbitrary decisions.

    I would say that at the moment, I'm more of a Wii fanboy, though I don't like to label myself as such. I have a ps3, as well, but at the moment, I think the Wii is the best out of the three next-gen systems.

    The ps3 doesn't have a large enough selection of the games I would like to play, and it's costly. I do use it to watch movies, and while Blu-Ray does indeed look spectacular on a big-screen TV, that shouldn't be it's selling point. It needs better games...or, perhaps it just needs more games. Games that I'm looking forward to on the ps3 aren't going to be coming around anytime soon...games like FFXIII. I'm not into shooters, sports games (with the exception of, say, THPS games or Mario games, which I don't think really count), and the like...which seems to be what the ps3 and 360 are all about, at the moment. More so with the 360, I think.

    Rather, I would prefer a cheaper system that introduces innovation, quality titles that I'm interested in, and user-friendliness. While the Wii is certainly lacking in power when compared to the other next-gen systems, graphics should not be the focus of a game. Nice graphics are good and all, but gameplay truly does matter first and foremost. Not only that, but I've grown up with Nintendo's superb first-party games...and as they continue to evolve and offer fun, unique gaming, I will continue to stay by Nintendo's side.
