Going to be honest, I'm one of the bad people in the fandom that people complain about. Obnoxiously forcing a show down your throat? Um, fuck yeah. But I do try to be fair about it -- I'm more than willing to let you take your time, or trade shows or whatever.

And I still take solice in the fact that I'm not even close to the worst just yet. Hurray!


Life is a performance, and the world is full of critics. Give it your all like it's your last show.
You don't even want to know

The worst fanbases are either for My Little Pony, Sonic, or Kingdom Hearts. The bronies shove their stupid memes in everyones' faces, the Sonic ones constantly bitch about the recent games and how the originals were better (they're not), and the Kingdom Hearts ones constantly whine about the third console game and romanticise everything with their fan-art and typical weeaboo shit.

The Death Note fandom.

If you go to the wild mass guessing page for Death Note on TVTropes, you'll find a list of like, twenty celebrities that died of heart attacks that fans are blaming on a real life Kira.

After all the drama I've read online lately about the Disney thing, I seriously believe this much is true. Didn't think Star Wars fans could ever be that annoying.

And Twilight has got to be the most difficult one to deal with, you just can't say anything about it online without at least someone getting all mad at you.

I see a lot about this TF2 game on the internet. I don't see what's the big deal really. I played it once. Looked like the Counter-Strike games but with cartoonish characters. I guess they say some silly things too. A lot of people seem to really like it. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but again, I don't see what's such a big deal with it. They aren't as annoying as bronies though.

I'm a fan and I totally agree with this. Some of the fans do some the dumbest shit and in term it gives the rest of us a bad name. Nothing wrong with liking the show, but just calm down with it guys. sheesh

Give it time. Someone will eventually post something about them. I have never been a major fan of capcom, so I don't know much about how their fans are. Presumably, from your post I take it that their bad. Right?

People bitching about ME's ending was perfectly legit. The game turned it's back on what it was built around and the endings didn't make any damn sense.

Anyone who considers themselves a fan of anything probably takes that anything too seriously.

BUT special shoutouts to the MLP fans, dubstep fanbase (particularly Skittles OOPS mean Skrillex), furry fans, Homestruck fans, Narutards, Pokemon fans, Digimon fans (for trying their hardest to convince you that Digimon isn't a shitty, rushed cash-in on Pokemons success, and the most blatant rip off of anything in existance), MLP fans, Call Of Duty fans, Minecraft fans, Pewdiepie fans, Tobuscus fans, Fans of v-bloggers in general, american football fans, wrestling fans, fans of shitty metalcore bands like Black Veil Brides/Blood On The Dancefloor/Breathe Carolina/Additional Awful Band, MLP fans.

MLP fans.

btw, don't ever say the words 'teen' and 'wolf' around me. Else I will bore you to tears talking at great length about how Teen Wolf is the greatest show in the history of everything.

I really like Dr.Who, but I have a friend who used to dress in funky suits with sneakers and carry around a toy sonic screwdriver. That's a bit much.

Homestuck fans. I like homestuck but some of your guys are over the top. I admit I like homestuck but wow some fans are really creepy and obsessive.

Console fans. Just enjoy your games and shut up. Just because you like Xbox more than PS doesn't make one better than the other.

Beyblade fans. I don't know why you get so uptight over a spinny top game. Its cool if you think it is fun but CALM DOWN. You don't like someone else's custom beyblade or its not the one directly ordered from Japan. Whatever. Enjoy your game and be quiet I don't wanna hear it.

Yugioh fans. On campus there are some people who play yugioh. Its a fun game. And that is what it needs to stay. A game. I am sick of 18-25 year olds arguing over this game like they are in grade school. It is immature an no one wants to play with someone who gets seriously upset over a children's trading card game.

Basically it all boils down to have fun with whatever you like, no matter how geeky. Don't make it an issue by making it consume your life or steamroll your friendships.

Yugioh is more than a game. It's a LIFESTYLE.

I'm bowing to you right now because of this, but you also forgot PC fans. They can just as bad or even worse than console fans at times.

I should have put gaming platform. I have noticed a lot of PC snobbery lately.

Ive never really experienced that, only things ive seen are 360 fans going on about how amazing it is and how the PS3 sucks.

pc is better though to be honest

Do you even know anything about Digimon? It has little to nothing to do with Pokemon aside from the name.
