Where the hell are you guys? Seriously it seems like they're the rarest bunch of users on this site. I love Nintendo and would even consider myself a fanboy but even I don't have a redname by choice.

I'm curious what the general ratio is on Giantbomb between users and color of name.

Is there just no hardcore Nintendo love anymore?

Nintendo makes my favorite console games, but I play more on my PC.

It might change if the WiiU is really good, because I'm really loving my 3DS right now.

You answered your own question. Because they are the rarest bunch of users on the site.

I wonder why giantbomb even has the colored name feature. I would figure them to be against all that system wars stuff. At least no one on the forums cares.

Um, if it helps, I would be red if I wasn't black (or white, for all you black people). I really enjoy Nintendo's handhelds, especially the DS.

yea it's weird. i have a blue name just because i like the color blue. if anything, i play my xbox a lot more than my PS3 so i guess my alignment is pretty much useless.

I turn my name red at Christmas time to accompany my Christmas avator. At least, I did once.

Oh you guys with red names.

@AjayRaz: GO TO HELL YOU SONY FAN BOY!

PS Green is just the best looking color. That is the real reason to choose a color.

There used to be a lot more back in 2008-2009, before a bunch of forum drama I only heard about after the fact turned into the more...enthusiastic ones leaving for redder pastures.

Linkyshinks was funny as fuck. He came back as Contro hoping not to be noticed then did THE EXACT SAME SHIT HE DID BEFORE. And then there's Oldschool, I think he's gone for good, he got real pissed off.

Ahhh the Nintendo defence force, such silly shit

The red faction died along with LinkyShinks and Oldschool.

You forgot Al3xand3r. He was my favorite because he was so in denial of his fanboyism while getting indignant at the smallest slight against a Wii-exclusive game.

God, remember the time OldSchool created some thread about how some website no one cares about that gave TMNT: Smash-Up an F was horrible and discreditable because Metacritic translated their score to a 0, and therefore that website should change their scale because no game deserves a zero and it was dishonest of the quality of the game?

Good fucking times.

The forums are boring as fuck now. Sure you get the occasional mad bastard like Jay but it's not the same. I miss hitman, Nintendo defence force, HD et al

Because aligning yourself to a platform limits your variety of games considerably, especially if it's Nintendo.

Since when does aligning with a console on a forum limit your choices? :P

@supamon: Yeah, if they dropped the alignment, I wouldn't mind. And then they could throw in all kinds of colors. They work for CBSi now, so maybe they can afford more colors.

I should probably be red after how much I play my 3DS now, but then there's the problem of the Wii.

Fuck it, I'll just stick with PC so I can feel elite.

I chose Red because it looks good, and it fits my avatar... I'll defend the N64 and Snes superiority over their counterparts though, not like anyone is going to argue that anyway.

I don't think I've used my Wii for more than 30 or so hours....

I guess if I cared enough or had no choice but to pick something it would be Nintendo....or PC since everything on a Nintendo console can technically be found on a PC.
