Wow, it's been quite a while since I've used this topic.
Just recently, I got into a skirmish with some idiot on DeviantART who's an apologist of Paper Mario: Sticker Star
, as well as a MLP
fanbrat. It all started with a conversation
I was having with someone else (from nearly a year ago) about the state of the Paper Mario
series and the Mario RPGs in general, which then prompted the douche in question
to reply with some bullshit strawman argument, accusing me of being a nostalgia purist and a Thousand-Year Door
fanboy. Then, before I had a chance to respond to him, he preemptively blocks me. Yeah, I'm sure you could already tell what a true
man of courage and bravery he
must be. Honestly, if it weren't for the fact that I already had a second account, I wouldn't have even bothered wasting my time on such a coward.
So then, I logged onto my other account and responded to him, telling him exactly what was wrong with his argument (things which blatantly contradicted his "nostalgia" claim). Afterwards, he decided to PM me. Ironically enough, he actually started to seem a little bit more reasonable. Then, at some point during the conversation, I asked if there was any chance my regular account could be unblocked. He didn't, of course, and said that he would only do so if I removed the anti-MLP
stamps I had in my page. I refused, but then I clarified, in the most polite way possible, that it wasn't an attack on all
fans of the show; it was only for the fanbrats who act as if disliking it is some sort of unspeakable crime (such as those who claim that it's "sexist" to do so). A short while later, he began to show his true colors: An immature crybaby who's unable to handle dissenting opinions of any kind, regardless of how reasonable or polite people are about them. It was from that point onward that I saw that there was absolutely no
reasoning with that dumbass, so I decided to wash my hands of him, telling him that he's free to go ahead and block the other account I was using, as well.
In his final response, he not only threw a tantrum about my Sticker Star
opinions, but also about my views on Sonic Colors
(both of which I consider to be extremely overrated), and proceeded to treat his own opinions like solid fact, and pretty much implied that mine were wrong solely because of them being the opposite of his own. The irony of him accusing me of being a fanboy, is that he literally gets all pissy over the fact that someone dared to say anything about PM:SS
that's even the slightest bit negative, and then goes out of his way to start shit over it. Last time I checked, that was the textbook definition
He also says that I and others within the fanbase don't give legitimate criticisms of Sticker Star
, repeatedly saying that no one ever judges that game without comparing it to TTYD
, and has said that criticizing the flawed battle system somehow doesn't count as a valid critique. Yeah, last time I checked, that was an essential part of the gameplay, so of course
it matters. Besides, what the hell did he expect? SS
was advertised as a sequel to the first three games, and if something doesn't meet the expectations set by its predecessors, you're damn right people are going to have something to say about it. Another bit of irony about this, is that he didn't make even one
valid point about TTYD
. The only reason he's given, aside from blaming the fans, is some drivel about it somehow being "too hard to block", despite the fact that it's executed exactly the same way
as it is in his precious Sticker Star
So, not only is he a butthurt fanboy and an utter coward who clearly can't take what he can dish out, but is a fucking hypocrite on top of the fact. Honestly, it's shocking
how this guy is only a mere six years
younger than I am. I'm pretty sure I wasn't anything
moron at the age of twenty-four, nor at any other point since I've started using the internet (in which I was obviously much
younger). Seriously, it's almost as if that guy was a literal caricature
of a fanboy.
