One time (actually, more than once) I admitted to not listening to a video games (any video game you can name) OST. Even going so far as to say that I prefer to listen to my own music while playing one.
All I'll say is that this is a good way to get some gamers ticked off at you.
A few years ago, on this forum, there was a thread about Sonic games. Those are already full of stupidity, but when others were discussing their favourite game in the Franchise I told them my favourite one was Sonic 06.
Needless to say, that led to a lot of questions as to my intelligence and my taste in games.
There's two things in my defence though; firstly, I had NO IDEA the game was widely considered so bad. I got it with my 360 and I didn't bother to check review scores, I was like 14 - I just got a game and played it. Secondly, while I can acknowledge the game is very bad, I actually had a lot of fun with it.
I still stand by when I say that I think it's a very overhated game.
Yes, it's terribly designed and glitchy as all hell, I'm not trying to say otherwise, but it's not UNPLAYABLE. You can sit down with the worst game in the world and still have fun with it, and at the end of the day isn't that all that matters?
I once had the audacity to suggest that The Hobbit trilogy isn't as terrible as everyone makes out and that the source material is almost at fault for the films as Peter Jackson.
I know, the first quote is mine, but still...
This dawned on me a few days ago, but the kinds of people Sprinter1988 and Zero Nexus mentioned are why I tend to prefer to call myself a casual fan and not a hardcore fan of whatever I'm into now, and whatever I will get into later in my life.
I mean, there's no denying it, the more (really) hardcore fans of something are insufferable individuals. Every fandom has them, the Pokemon fandom is not excluded from this.
I know this could sound like I'm caring too much what other people think and do, but we've all seen these people, so can you blame me, and others, for feeling like this?
It would be easier to tolerate and ignore these people if they didn't lose it every time 1.) someone does something just slightly different than everyone else, 2.) the slightest thing doesn't go according to their personal expectations.
