It varies.  They certainly exist but they don't use the obvious "M$" and other juvenile troll-speak.  Lots of folks on these boards have more than one console or platform, so truly confrontational fanboyism is seen less.  Honestly, most of the time, that type of behavior is called out by the community with malice.  "Don't be a dick" is the number one rule.  Still, I miss some of the old console trolls ("Dr_Cash") because they were good for a laugh.

They obviously aren't as heavy on this site as they are on others. Don't ruin that bud.

While nobody can truly guarantee that certain users won't go fanboy crazy (there are always exceptions), the general thing here is that any fanboyism is limited to mentioning that one console or its games are better than another console's with reasons. Pretty sensible - and I guess the color of user's names is the other thing here.

I've found there's far less fanboyism on these forums than on most other video game sites and even when the odd fanboy does pop up he won't start ranting on like an idiot. If you came from somewhere like the Gamespot forums this place should be a godsend.

Yeah, there's either much less outspoken fanboys here or they're just much better at containing themselves here. There are supports of specific consoles obviously, but for me, I've found the colour coded names work in showing who you support without going up in arms asbout it.

Don't piss them off. I'm still getting crap for Devil Survivor, and I'm sure that this post will get more crap just for mentioning that crap. Kinda reminds me of this.

The forums for the most part escape most of the idiotic fanboys, but some do pop up every now and then. They are usually banned or suspended users from GameSpot that like to troll. From my experience though most people just laugh and ignore said people who troll and act like fanboys on this forum.

It's funny how we can align ourselves to microsoft, sony, or nintendo via our user name and then the color it will show up as 
And yet for the most part the fan boys don't rear their ugly head

You can't help it if you're generally shit at games Mr Video_Game_King. Your lack of experience and ability is not your fault. We just feel sorry for you.

There's definitely some fanboys still around, but generally the PS3 vs 360 type are somewhat mild here.

I'm a bit of a PC fan whatever. But these days I'm just feeling it's pain, I caught that remark by Dave Snyder, he having a tougher time finding origonal games for the PC. Sure doesn't seem like th old days, and now you even have lousy PC ports. That is to a platform that can do so much for the game, and yet it is actually subpar to it's console rivals. Oh for the old golden days of pissing on the X-box and the PS2

Too many console gamers are hating on pc gaming. That's why you don't like it because your a pc troll. If you see pc gamers being arrogant, it's because we do actually have the power behind the games, the resolution, the textures, framerates, the anti alaising, the aniostropic filter, the DX10 lighting, the DX11 tessellation, the physX (no elistism intended, it's just the truth since we don't depend on art design and low quality effects with low rez textures hidden in motion) We get alot of hate because our platform isn't streamlined and user friendly to everyone anymore. It's completely opposite to consoles, we have dedicated servers, we have mods and configs to change the quality of our games. It's just ppl doesn't want to spend the money and they are hating on a faster more powerful platform. We know our platform is ridden with piracy and that we lost most of the support, however we do have better technology and we still enjoy our pc gaming and we still enjoy using steam. I blame the xbox360 because they brought mid range pc style games to ppl's living rooms and took everything from our market. They gave us shitty console services like GFWL (no elistism intended, I don't like the service and try to give us really lousy ports) Microsoft isn't supporting pc gaming anymore either, the xbox360 changed the face of everything this gen. With steam, online distribution, and MMO's and constant refresh of videocards, our pc gaming industry will never die. If there are gamers out there, some will be interested in pc gaming, the rest shouldn't just troll on it because they are pc haters. Haters are gonna hate. Pc gamers aren't acting like fanboys, they are just speaking the truth and it hurts some delicate egos and their sensibilities unintended.  
 
I've noticed almost everyone with a grey name, sorry to generalize, i'm talking about new forum users are all pc trolls or most of them anyways. That makes them console fanboys.

There are a lot of fanboys but they are not all bad. The worst fanboys on this site, are the people who go nuts over anything the giant bomb guys do. If you say anything negative about them, people will go ape shit.
