Zelda Fans
ZOMG BEST ZELDA GAME 10/10 , BEST GAME SINCE OCARINA OF TIME, ALL THE OTHER ONES WERE CRAP
(years later) OOHH NEW ZELDA GAME!! THE PREVIOUS ONE WAS CRAP. FINALLY, WE BEAT OCARINA OF TIME!

GTA Fans
50% of fans: OMG BEST GAME EVER 10/10
50% of fans: This game sucks, 7/10, Vice City was better

Fanboys protect their game no matter what. Even when gameplay and grahpic are not so good, then fanboys keep saying and ignoring all the facts that other games has better gameplay and grahpic.

In short... Fanboys ignores truth and protect their game by lying and making things up

Yeah, but they conveniently complain about the game only when the next one is announced/

Alot of games have their honeymoon period in which everything seems perfect. This is nothing new and certainly not limited to just these games.

There is no point in arguing about or trying to understand fanboy logic. There is no logic.

Same thing with console fanboys.

Fun thing is, while every fanboy complain, we; non fanboys, have fun playing those games/consoles :)

Really? You clearly don't know what you're talking about. Zelda fans pretty much bash every single Zelda that isn't OoT when it comes out.

Then what do you say to somebody like me that owned 5 Zelda games before he bought A Link Between Worlds and thought all five of those Zelda games sucked (OoT was somewhat okay), but loves A Link Between Worlds?

No they don't, People are saying WW is gorgeous and a fantastic Zelda now even though it was a globally annoying game before. I still think it's the most annoying zelda i've played. It's too damn tedious.

Where are we getting globally annoying from?

I hated Wind Waker. I spent more time in a boat than anything else. Freaking boating sim is what it was.

Just live in the now. I hate hype sometimes.

The Zelda fanbase is largely the opposite. Complains about every new game when it comes out, then when the next one gets announced they suddenly love the previous one. Wind Waker, for example. There's a reason that 4chan thread screencap gets posted so much.
