I've tried to kick the habit. I broke up with my Wii and believed I had converted myself to the mainstream of playing video games for the love of the game and nothing else.
But with the announcement of the Wii U by Nintendo, I've found myself falling back into old patterns. I want to defend something that which I would like to play. I should not care if someone calls it a crap name, crapware console, outdated the day it's released and the be all end all, my console of choice is still better today even before the Wii U comes out.
Maybe it's a forum habit thing, maybe it's too close to the unveiling and nerves are worn, but fuck, I have worked hard to stop being the fanboy, the defender, the apologist.
If I don't kick this new / old habit, my forum years are going to be full of butthurt. And my butt is old, so is there any hope? Am I just a Nintendo fanboy? How do you justify your console of choice? Do you defend it? Do you just accept that things change, consoles change, the way you control video games change and go with the flow?
Old habits are hard to break.
