Herein lies the problem. “Fanboy,” as an insult, is often an unfair and out-of-context accusation. More often than not, it is used in arguments between two or more people as a way to disregard a person’s point of view. To many, casting someone off as a fanboy is far easier than attempting to understand an opposing viewpoint.
Wow, I don't think I've ever agreed on a game article like this, ever!

If i have time, I'll write more into it, but the viewpoint of the author is something I can definitely get behind. If they continue with this type of writing, we may have just found our first proper (credible, not resorting to the whims of "let's just get more hits and stir the pot") gaming news/editorial site.
