GamesRadar: Let's discuss a more specific kind of customer: the fanboy. Who are the most obnoxious?
#5: I hate to stereotype, but Xbox fanboys are the worst. They've got this weird obsession with getting Linux on their consoles, but then never use Linux as their actual desktop at home; it's always Windows. I work in computers for a living now, so this kind of thing continually annoys me.
#1: Along with the "my games look and sound better than yours" mentality, the Xbox / Xbox 360 fanboys also
GamesRadar: Now let's talk about some of the personalities you interact with... starting with coworkers. What kind of conversations do you guys have?
#1: Too many to count.... a few standouts are Star Trek vs. Star Wars, best-looking chicks in a videogame and who would win in a fight... "fictional character #1" or "fictional character #2"?
#6: Yeah, Star Wars... whether or not Darth Maul was badass. Just to play devil's advocate, I had to throw Jar Jar into the mix. "Dude, Darth Maul's so
GamesRadar: Starting from the beginning... what made you want to work at a videogame store in the first place?
Employee #1: Who wouldn't want to spend their days hanging out with friends, talking about videogames and getting paid to do it?
Employee #2: I thought it would be fun. I thought I knew enough about games that I could be informative when customers had questions about them...
Employee #3: I wasn't really looking for a job in gaming, but since I bought a lot of games, I figured it

There are two kinds of Nintendo fans; those who buy the systems and like to have fun, and those who do weird Nintendo-related shit in their free time that's also pretty cool. Oh and both might buy those "trendy" Hot Topic shirts. Here's a sampling of some of the crazy stuff that these Nintendo fanboys have been up to:
1) The Famicom guitar:
You're probably thinking that this guitar/Famicom hybrid beats fire, the combustion engine and sliced bread as mankind's best invention ever. That's until
7. The Typing of the Dead
2001 - Dreamcast, PC
1999's The House of the Dead 2 was one of the finest lightgun shooters ever conceived - fast, gory and filled with awesome-looking zombies and monsters to blow apart. We don't know who originally thought it would be a good idea to turn that into a semi-educational game where you type words and phrases to kill zombies, but whoever they are, they deserve a damn medal.

An exclusive review not enough for you? How about a video walkthrough of an entire level of Super Paper Mario?

And has to use the bathroom. To continue reading this story would expose you to spoilers.
So Luigi turns bad at this point, summons his massive Brobot monster and tries to lay waste to Mario's plans. Want
5. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
Nintendo | Nintendo | 2003
"A young boy clothed in green appeared as if from nowhere." While everyone expected an epic Link adventure on GameCube, many were surprised by this entry's bold departures from the past
What made it so great?
Anyone who complains that the Zelda games don't take enough chances must have missed this one. The Wind Waker risked everything by transforming everything - the series' familiar look, its beloved world, even its iconic
10. Resident Evil
Capcom | Capcom | 2002
Affectionately known as "REmake," this horror classic was the first game to show off what the Cube could really do, with visuals that literally made our jaws drop
What made it so great?
In a word: zombies. Big, beautiful zombies with hyper-detailed ribbons of flesh dangling off their leering, glassy-eyed faces as they lurch forward to clutch at your throat. In 2002, Resident Evil was the best-looking game to appear on any platform, ever, pumping out a
