I use to always let myself get caught up in the hype of E3. I would constantly speculate about what would be announced on various message boards, and it was fun. But something has happened during the console generation. More than in years past fanboys of particular systems have become increasingly vocal. Its to the point where you cannot open a thread about a specific game without having someone either gloating, or bringing the game down for absurd reasons.
The big three are not helping this at all, they like it and they try to fuel it. Sony and Microsoft constantly take little digs at each other during presentations. Now I do realize they are trying to promote their products, but you can do that in a more mature way.
Something has changed in recent years. Being a fan of video games meant you loved the games, weather it was on Nintendo or Sega it really did not matter. Now there seems to be so many people who favor only one console and spit on everything else.
