International Fanboys Bitching About Killzone 2 Reviews Day

If there is one thing that irritates me like nothing else, it's moronic fanboyism. It's something that has been bred into console gaming. My guess is it all started with the Genesis does what Nintendon't ads. Ever since then it's been a nonstop pissing contest as to who's console has the bigger phallus. Today the internet is running rampant with fanboys complaining about Killzone 2 reviews. It doesn't matter what the review says about the content of the game or the "score" given to it by the reviewer, even though it isn't even available in stores yet, it's always wrong in the fanboys opinion.

My question, Do you enjoy the game or not? If so, what does the review even matter? You paid your money, got your game, and are enjoying it. Do you need confirmation that your purchase was justified? Then you have much larger issues you need to deal with in life my friends.

Reviews are based on opinion folks, get over it. Just because you don't agree, doesn't make their opinion any less valid. In fact, I'll leave you a nifty little excerpt from the U.S. Constitution that guarantees their right to said opinion.

Amendment 1 - Freedom of Religion, Press, Expression. Ratified 12/15/1791.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a
redress of grievances.

P.S. You have the right to your opinion also, but not the right to defamation of character.

I couldn't agree more. I read reviews and if a game gets a bad review I might wait to check it out. But I remember when the TMNT game got crappy reviews and my mom got it for me for my birthday. Bad reviews for it yet you and I both have and we both loved it. So if a game gets a bad review, but you like the game, and you still bitch I have 4 words for you. Shut The Fuck Up.
