Citizen fanboy : The Autopsy

September 5, 2007


We all know a fanboy when we see one, and we all have our theories as to why fanboys are fanboys.  Mostly, we think they’re retards.  David Keating however, has decided to delve deeper into the anatomy of a fanboy, and comes up with a more well thought out and fully fleshed theory behind the fanboy phenomenon.

I like the retard theory better.

    I think David Keating is right on the mark! His analysis, however, is just a longer version of the word “retard”. And what he is saying is that fanboy retards are not born, they are made (the moment they decide to buy the one console).

    I think I finally shed off my fanboyism for a specific piece of hardware and I’m shifting towards fanboyism for specific games, which is a far more healthy form of fanboyism than that for (or against) specific companies!

    Glad to see it, Tony. That’s more in line with being a fan than a fanboy. Much better that way.
