Cliffy B and Kojima Flip Off Fanboys; Doesn’t Matter What Console You Play

Cliffy B and Kojima Flip Off Fanboys; Doesn’t Matter What Console You Play

Fanboys will never go away. There will always be those gamers who will like one console over the other, who will like one game over another and will swear by those choices no matter what anyone says. But what it boils down to is their biased opinions don’t matter and even developers of AAA titles don’t care what those fanboys think, great games come out for all consoles and that’s just the truth.

Usually I don’t really agree with Cliff Bleszinski aka Cliffy B, director and designer of famous titles from Epic Games, but this time I can get on-board with what he is saying. Even though he makes a hugely successful platform exclusive title Gears of War, he can even get past the biased opinions to come out against fan boys. In a twitter post sent out today Cliffy B and Hideo Kojima, the famous game director of the Metal Gear franchise, took a great picture that came with an even better caption:

Kojima and I say “it doesn’t matter what console you have, great games are great games.”#suckitfanboys

Honestly I couldn’t have said it better myself. This won’t stop all the fanboys from writing articles like Gears of War 3 vs Uncharted 3 (two games which only have one thing in common, the fact that they are 3rd person shooters) but it’s nice to see some big time developers such as Kojima and Cliff Blezinski giving the finger to all the fanboys out there. Well done.
