    Ive been hearing a lot of fanboy this and fanboy that recently. Is fanboy the new trend? What exactly is a fanboy? does being a fan of something make a person a fanboy? are there fangirls, fanwomen, and fanmen?

    Kinda obvious, a boy or person that's an extreme fan of something.

    Fanboy is someone who likes nothing but a certain brand. ie people who go on about Nintendo but will not entertain any other console.

    I'm an extreme fan of Final Fantasy because its music and graphics pushes the consoles limits on quality. Am I a fanboy because I'm an extreme fan of Final Fantasy? That makes lots of people I know fanboys.

    Fanboy (n): One who blindly defends a company, system, et cetera; usually with ignorant and flagrantly stupid means.
    See douchebag.

    Sure, being a fanboy doesn't have to be a bad thing. Most gamers are fanboys.

    kidtmnt you change your response quick lmao I don't think you want to fall under that definition your smart. But yeah that is the meanig there though. Like if nintendo was to set up bombs in the consoles and millons of people got kill, a person would defend the hell out of nintendo, of why they had bombs in the consoles. and that would make that individual a fanboy

    Fanboys always give biased opinions and typically spend way too much time talking BS about consoles and games they've never tried. What's so great about that?

    There are 2 main definitions to the fanboy, that's one of them. I consider myself a Nintendo fanboy, but I'm not ignorant when it comes to the ps3 and 360 like most people here.

    fanboy = :incazzato:


    -Unfortunetly for reputation on these forums classify me as a fanboy. Fanboy is just a loyal and overly supprotive fan. Simple as that.
