    Good work Hooters. Very interesting. Most of these reasons aren't too hard to understand. The sad part of it though is people linking their identity to a piece of consumer electronics. I can't believe that's healthy.

    If this article means the end of Fanboy Coop, then I'll be happy XD

    Do you EVER have ANYTHING good to say?! I mean for f*cksake every time I see you commenting it is trying to invalidate an article on GamesRadar. If you don't like them THAT much, find a site that you do like. There are 100's of them dedicated to XBox 360, PS3, XBox One, and PS4 news out there.

    What is a fanboy? A MISERABLE PILE OF BIAS!
  • chris-breseman - November 26, 2013 12:31 p.m.

    I don't think their a "miserable pile of bias." They are bias but not miserable. You can tell pretty quickly if you are dealing with a person who wants to have a logical debate or just tell you their opinion while trying to force said opinion on you. If you're dealing with the former, you're going to have a good, probably long conversation rooted deep in logic with both people forming sensible opinions based on their beliefs while listening to the other. If you're dealing with the later, walk away. It is easier than to try to talk to a brick wall that wants nothing but to spew their opinions as 'right' while anything you say is wrong, even though both are highly subjective opinions.

    Oh boy, I cannot wait to dig into this article.

    I think my brain just shutdown, but these insights have really gotten to me. I need to go take a nap.

    "Stubborn belief in a brand, to the point of denial" If this doesn't accurately describe Henry's Nintendo Stannery, then I don't know what does.

    In one single article, every gamer on this site has now become a PhD. Behavioral Phycologist. Congratulations.

    Alright, I understand why a Sonic picture is there, but it still annoys me. I know that the Sonic fanbase is generally a bunch of fanboys, but I hate seeing that because it feels like no-one ever likes Sonic anymore. And that makes me sad. He's fallen on hard times in the past, but he's going in an upward slope! Maybe we'll get some of the old non-fanboy fans back soon. And don't think I'm a fanboy myself; I'll fully admit that there are some crap Sonic games out there, and happily too.

    Sorry guys but the game$radar thing is true no matter what side of the console wars you think were on. You guys used to be completely unbiased and genuinely trusted. Now you sit here and gives developers excuses for poor execution and day on DLC habits happily while they line your pockets with money and home entertainment centers with free merchandise. I've been here since cheatplanet and I have watched your downfall slowly. I knew it was over the second you guys went from a 10 star system with one long page reviews to a 5 star system and 10 page reviews at half the length. You changed from 10 stars to 5 stars so you can more easily get away with critiquing big time developers for their bad game while still making them look good. Because 3/5 looks better than 6 or 7 out of 10. You changed from long page articles to this ridiculous CLICK 10 PAGES FOR EACH SECTION OF THE REVIEW so you can cash in on more ad views and clicks. Yes, the console wars are full of biased little kids, but you guys really have taken a turn for the worse and deserve a lot of the criticism you get. Sincerely, And old friend

    Actually, since the slideshow doesn't refresh the page, the new format has less room for ads than before.
  • GR_DavidHoughton - November 25, 2013 1:52 p.m.

    Reviews are on one page, and we use half stars, thus doubling the five point scale to ten. My home entertainment system IS awesome, but that's because I picked out and paid for it myself. Any other business?
  • mothbanquet - November 26, 2013 1:52 a.m.

    An article on games industry conspiracy theorists next?
  • Beoftw - May 21, 2014 1:14 p.m.

    Funny how there are popup ads between each one of these 'slides' that only help my point.
  • Aythree-Lorenzo - November 25, 2013 10:12 a.m.

    I'm a fan of all platforms, I love the PS, Xbox and the PC and see no reason why I should side with any of them and miss out on all those wonderful games out there.
