Top 10 Worst Video Game Fanbases

There are a lot of good video game fanbases, but there are also a lot of them that are annoying or just stupid fanboys. Rate up which one you think is dumbest of them all. These are the top ten worst, most annoying video game fanbases in the world.
The Top Ten
1 Call of Duty Fans

Hoo, boy. These people... THESE people... Okay, let's get something straight. Call of Duty isn't exactly a terrible game. Is it basically the same game each year with new flashy graphics attached? Yes. But some of the games were pretty decent. Now the fans? *sigh* Okay, here we go. 1. THIS GAME DOESN'T MAKE YOU MANLY. You can think it, but it just isn't true! 2. Nobody wants to listen to your music blaring from your iPod. It's okay if you want to listen to your music, go ahead, but don't blare it to the rest of the people playing. 3. Some of them say Nintendo is for kids. Yes, some games like Kirby and even the New Super Mario Bros games are. But that is their point! They are to introduce you to gaming. You also are looking past games like Conker's Bad Fur Day and ZombiU. 4. If you die, you die. Don't go on cursing for 15 seconds because someone got you. And finally 5. Graphics aren't the focus of a game. Some bash other non-shooter games because they don't have perfect graphics. In a game like Call of Duty, you don't have to focus as much on controls and gameplay. With Mario games like Galaxy and 3D World, you have a lot of differences between the two. In Galaxy you had to make sure that the gravity mechanic worked everywhere, the controls were easy to use, and the power-ups each had a reason to be used. Same goes for 3D World. You may not have the gravity of planets mechanic, but you have 5 characters to choose from who each function quite differently from the others. In the new Call of Duty, you have multiple characters, but they all play exactly the same with the guns. Sorry if I sound negative, but these people just need to realize these things.

2 Five Nights at Freddy's Fans

It was a fun and jumpy game, in till it clogged up my recommended videos on YouTube, channels reaching 1 million subs because they do a top 10 every day! Lets get onto the Fan base, it is full of fan boys and girls that find the game really fun because a big YouTuber played it, half of the fans haven't even played the game! They get all into the theories even though the game probably has no back story but the developer probably goes off what the fans say... The fan base is full of fan boys, 12 year old girls and people that have a kink over metal

The general idea of this game was pretty cool- in my opinion, but I just couldn't stand the fandom anymore. I think it's insanely overrated and childish. I say childish because its attracting a wide majority of younger audiences (for some reason) and the idea of murdering children and stuffing them in cute suits seems... very overused. Not that it's common, just the whole "murdering innocent things" trope is kinda annoying.

3 Sonic Fans

There are two sides to the Sonic fandom. The nice side, which creates wholesome and funny artwork and other media. And there's the not-so-nice side, which is the one you prpbably know about. I'm part of the nice side, but there's just one thing. The 'Nice Side' keeps to themselves, whilst the 'Not-so-nice Side' is the one that messes things up for everyone else. Because everyone hears about the weird side of the fandom, they assume that it is what the entire fandom is like. But the two sides barely meet, and actually dislike each other greatly.

I have to say, the Sonic fanbase has toned down a bit during the current franchise renaissance. Fans are slowly becoming more accepting of the newer games, like Sonic Frontiers (despite its flaws), and the upcoming classic throwback game, Sonic Superstars. However, there is another side of the fandom that consists of NSFW artwork, shippings, character fanboyism, toxic behavior, and drama within the community. It reminds me of the song The Other Guy, where the lead singer does nothing to help with the bitter aftertaste of cheating and instead says "you just need to try again!" This song basically becomes the national anthem for this section of the fandom and comes off as toxic due to its portrayal of cheating. And let's not even get started on individuals like Chris-Chan. Seriously, do Sonic fans ever seek therapy?

4 Minecraft Fans

I like Minecraft but the fans are the most annoying people on Earth. It's filled with mindless 6-8 year olds which will bash anyone who says anything bad about Minecraft and of course, every single bit of the game and every single player! These folks are just trying to be cool & MLG without actually playing. And the fans will bash you if you try to say anything bad about Minecraft!

Then there's the Minecraft YouTube videos. There's nooby trolling videos which has almost nothing in it and stupid parodies of popular songs as well. All of them are about diamonds or Endermans or whatever about Minecraft and has very little creativity.

Finally Minecraft community is sensitive to certain kinds of people. There is enough proof to say that there are so much radioactive kids which are only interested in Minecraft. So horrible.

I like this game, but there are many kids that if you say you don't like Minecraft or that you like Fortnite to them, they will just be disrespectful to you. I am a kid myself but I don't go up to Fortnite fans or any other fans of different games and say something disrespectful to them.

5 Fortnite Fans

Seriously, this is coming from a 12 year old, but I HATE fortnite... It's so annoying and I can't go anywhere in public without seeing or hearing something about that irritating game... I got bullied just because I hated it. And the dances aren't even original! They legit stole most (if not all) of the "dances"! I swear, if they date touch the peace and tranquility smug dance from a hat in time somebody's getting punched. Why waste hundreds of dollars on garbage? I lost 4 friends because of it. This should be number one on the list. And don't we already have enough gun games as it is?

Fortnite is arguably the most overrated game in years. The fan base around it is made up of prepubescent kids who will threaten anyone who dislikes Fortnite, and constantly blabber about how "it is much better than any other Battle Royale video games".

Annoying people doing annoying dances from the game are like a cancer to all social medias, and you cannot get rid of the Fortnite feed, no matter what you do.

Hopefully new and upcoming FPS games will gain in popularity and leave Fortnite in the 'Worst Video Game Fanbases' history.

6 Super Smash Bros Fans

From a Fanbase perspective, Super Smash Bros. is akin to that of a super-attractive prostitute and everyone is really horny for her, which ends up attracting a lot of jealous people who either aren't as lucky to get laid, or just aren't as pretty as her.

But in all seriousness, I am a fan of Smash and it's shaped a lot of my nostalgia. However, ever since reaching adulthood, I've found myself becoming more and more detached from the series, and most of it is to do with the fandom, who have constantly proven themselves to be among the most self-entitled, obnoxious, pretentious, and salty communities that I've stumbled across. There are good fans, of course, but when most of the voices are coming from the worst, there's not much to express. All I want is to simply enjoy the game and experience, not to walk into debates complaining about certain characters (take a shot for any time Waluigi is mentioned), tier-lists, and complaining about how the newer games suck because of "nostalgic" reasons (the whole "it's better" doesn't really hold up much value either when you consider how broken Melee is).

Lastly, Smash can be pretty much everywhere, even if you want nothing to do with it. It's a fine crossover, but I'm not making it out to be the absolute peak and excellence of digital media and fiction in general, let alone crossovers in general. As I said before, I like Smash, but at this point, I'd rather play and/or spend time on something else at certain occasions.

7 PC Master Race Fans

Honestly i'm a PC gamer and I sometimes joke about how console players are peasants and PC is the true master race even though I don't actually mean it, I have a lot of consoles and into Halo and Super Smash Bros., The console I have are a Xbox 360 S (will get rid of in July 29, 2024), a PlayStation 3 Super Slim, a Wii (got rid of in January 30, 2019), Nintendo DSi (got rid of in March 31, 2017), a PlayStation 2 Phat (got rid of in March 31, 2016), a Original Xbox (got rid of in April 15, 2010), a GameCube, a Nintendo 3DS (got rid of in March 27, 2023), a PlayStation Vita, a Wii U (got rid of in March 27, 2023), a PlayStation 4 and a Xbox One but I like to play on my Xbox 360 and PlayStation 4 the most and I'm even planning to get Call of Duty: Black Ops III in the future.

Oh my god, I want to put all these idiots in a room and punch them all. These people will put the PC on a pedestal to anyone who will (or even won't) listen. They will smugly point out all the flaws of the consoles and console games, and how their gaming experience is SO MUCH BETTER because they play on a PC they've foolishly sunk $1000 into while most people struggle to pay their damn rent let alone by video games. Where was your PC when Arkham Knight came up? Oh that's right, because it's NOT PERFECT. Us unwashed console gamers got to enjoy that game for six whole months without any problems.

8 Undertale Fans

Some of these people are ok, but some are just completely insane. I personally cannot see why anyone would want to make images of Papyrus making out with Mettaton, but that's just me.

What a great game, so many nice characters, amazing soundtrack, deep story, and so much skeleton porn. Wait skeleton porn!?! Oh no no hi where am I? Could this be, an Instagram account names sans_love_sans? That ladies and gentlemen is an example of an extreme undertale fan. Undertale is great, fun and enjoyable. Some fans are good as well. Some learn to play the songs and just like the game (like me, I'm not the best at the songs though). But when you see your friend who loves undertale, watching goat porn, you know how bad the fan base gets. Many undertale fans are like that, many of them have unhealthy obsessions with a fine game and this causes it to be tainted with, well how do I say this, excessive ammounts of necrophilia and beastiality. So please, if your a person who tends to go a bit to far with their fan base stay out. If your not, (or can control what I said previously) please take a look at this very fine game, you will not regret it (if you do, sorry. I'm not great at guesses)

9 Nintendo Fans

Nintendo Fans have this mentality of why Nintendo can do no wrong when it comes to Nintendo themselves hating their own fans. Nintendo has been known for hating their fans, hating actual customers, and hating on certain developers when Happy Mask San™ doesn't get his way. I am through understanding. You should be too!

I swear, Nintendo fans are just getting worse and worse every year. I am a Nintendo fan myself and I feel like ever since 2019, they have grown to be more toxic and more annoying. Let's face it. Nintendo is still doing terrible business decisions such as removing music uploads from YouTube, rushing some of their games out (heavily contradicting Miyamoto's quote "a delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad") and copyright-striking YouTubers. And yet the fans are fine with that? This just makes me sick! I think Nintendo is starting to turn into the traitors of the gaming industry, with many of their blind fans following in their footsteps. Why don't you take a break and go outside for once instead of ranting about your favorite game franchise?

10 Console Fans

I prefer to judge the console by the games on it. If the console itself has any severe issues, like inefficiant power consumption, overheating, system glitches, then yes, it is a bad console. But I choose a console by the games that are on it, not by the console itself.

Constantly moaning about PC fans and also with other console fans. That's right. They argue amongst themselves. Love Sonic? People in the fanbase hate you! Love Mario? People in the fanbase hate you! Love PS4? People hate you! Love XBOX360? People hate you! Console fanboys are full of hate towards people outside and inside the fanbase. They constantly fight over which franchise and console is better. Even which company is better. I barely see the difference between a XBOX 360 and PS4, they're both expensive black rectangles. In the PC fanbase, nobody cares about what laptop you have. Have a Lenovo? Nobody will love or hate you for it. You may find someone who has the same type, but they just see it as something they have similar. Have a Dell? Same thing. Phone fans also do the same arguing as console fans, but arguing over phone brands. What about if people stop saying 'such-and-such phone company or console is better' and give the facts and let people decide for themselves? Or just let them buy a random phone or console, like the PC fans just let people have a random brand of PC?

The Contenders
11 Waluigi Fans

When I think of Daisy haters, Waluigi fanboys are the first to come to my mind. It seems like most people who bash Daisy and her fanbase love Waluigi and think he's the greatest thing to ever exist. Sure Daisy's fanbase isn't great either, but Waluigi's fanbase is worse. It's kind of funny how some Waluigi fans will bash Daisy and Rosalina for being Peach clones, yet wouldn't Waluigi also be a clone following this exact logic? Luigi and Wario would be Mario clones, and Waluigi would be another Mario clone and a clone of Mario's two clones. Most Waluigi fans are real jerks to anyone who doesn't like or worship the WAH god. Daisy and Rosalina fans seem to be their favorite people to target. So it's perfectly okay for Daisy's fanbase to be treated terribly just for liking Daisy, yet there's nothing wrong with Waluigi's fanbase, after they insult Daisy fans because *insert Waluigi meme*?

The Waluigi memes are old and repetitive at this point. Most memes die out quickly, but Waluigi memes are still kicking around today. I used to think the "WAH" thing was funny... back when it was new. But now it's old and kind of annoying. You can't really escape Waluigi's fanboys as they're always posting WAH in comments of Mario videos on YouTube. There's nothing wrong with liking Waluigi, but his fanbase is atrocious. If you thought Daisy and Rosalina had bad fanbases, you haven't seen Waluigi's fanbase.

12 Game Theory Fans

What is everyone's problem with game theory? They've made some of the most complicated yet great theories on video games. They actually go into large amounts of detail instead of two steps in. He has always been the smartest youtuber that I know about. Hell, very few can actually prove his theories wrong!

"Game theory is the worst thing to happen to video games since the video game crash"

-King boo, September 29th 2015.

That is not something I said. But what I did do, Is I screencapped this comment because I never, Never have agreed so much with anything in my life.

It's like, He just perfectly summed it up.

I honestly like matpats funny personality and smart reasons, (although even he can trip up sometimes...) It's just his fans that if you don't agree with him than you are automatically wrong.

Yes. I even like his fnaf videos, but I do understand the cry out against them Matpat is milking them quite a bit to get some theories out but I can actually live with them.

13 GTA Fans (Grand Theft Auto)

Whiniest people ever, broken into factions that like Grand Theft Auto online and factions that hate it, and they're at each other's throats. Any deviation from SA or IV, including SA and IV, are bad to them. Grand Theft Auto fans will call out any open world game with 3D movement and vehicles (or even just horses) as a Grand Theft Auto clone and dislike it for "copying Grand Theft Auto". The dumbest and most annoying children and adults I've met are part of this fanbase.

They constantly complain about the online component of the game and assume that since Rockstar made over a billion dollars within the games first week the company no longer needs money. This is illogical because there was a 5 year gap between the last two Grand Theft Auto games meaning their profits aren't as high as they seem.

If you read my comment (it's at number 8) You see that I said that Grand Theft Auto is good...for the most part. The game is good but the kids on the game they cry if you hurt them a bit or do anything don't believe me well there's no reason why you shouldn't believe me just search up on YouTube "Kids raging on Grand Theft Auto" BAM!

14 Cuphead Fans

Serious people if you hate cuphead so much I see the same exact comments on every top ten featuring cuphead I'm 100% sure its 1 person spamming, at least be honest about it don't go out a say "Cuphead gross" say something like the fanbase ruined a good game, and why would you hate cuphead if you haven't played it yet, and you're saying it ruined 1930 cartoons, it's called "Inspiration" like the character cuphead is inspired by a Japanese propaganda cartoon cup with Mickey's clothes.

Look, I love this game, I have played it. But its Fanbase really ticks me off, I never though that the fangirls would start shipping themselves with Cuphead and drawing other disgusting incest art. Also what the heck is with this Bendy x Cuphead ship, it literally makes no sense. For Christ's sake Cuphead is a game based on 1930s Cartoons, not an anime.

To be honest, it's a great game just like Undertale, but the fanbase ruins it for me, with its rule 34, shipping Cuphead with Mugman, like, why would Cuphead make love with his own brother that's just disgusting. They're also fanfics of Bendy x Cuphead, I mean not in a good way, this is what happens if you fuse bad fandoms together.

15 Roblox Fans

Besides the fact the game sucks, the fans are atrocious. The kids have the mental capacity of a pile of armadillo crap and they have more ego than Donald Trump himself. Usually, most of it is overused 2012 MLG memes combined with ignorant Minecraft role-players who spend their parents credit card to buy in-game currency because they're spoiled brats. Did I mention most of these kids can't take criticism and can't take others opinions? They act depressed 9/10 times and god bless you if you have the strength to call someone out. They'll just report you, as we all know is a tactic everyone in this game uses. At least it doesn't have voice chat.

There are Online Daters who when you confront them they either role-play their way out of it, or just saying "fxxck you." 80% of the ROBLOX players are full of kids who still reference MLG memes. In games like Auto Rap Battles or pretty much any game that you have to vote for whoever is the best at whatever they're supposed to be doing, the friends of one of the players who are competing automatically vote for them, even if they are complete garbage. Not to mention there are these cafes who are full of depressed 16 year olds who take their cafe too seriously, and one of them; Soro's-- had one of the head "workers" copyright striked a person's video for using their logo and supposedly not modifying it in any way, even though it was modified. In cafe groups some of the workers support the Online Daters, and they also instantly kick anyone that has a weird avatar.

16 LOL Fans (League of Legends)

I am not trying to be racist or anything but it litterally depends on what county you play this game on. If you play on the SEA server like I did, You have the worst fanbase in the existence of humankind

Frankly, this game was engineered for toxicity. Not to mention among all the decent-looking characters they just HAD to add derpy, trolly like teemo.

Their fandom is funny because of the frustration reactions they get into when they lose.

17 Final Fantasy VII Fans

I personally think that the whole fanbase is terrible. While the Final Fantasy VII fans will avoid anything that isn't 7, the other fans will bash any final fantasy that isn't turned based and say that all games after 7 are bad. I personally liked Final Fantasy 7-12. They hated 12 simply because it wasn't turn based (not a valid reason) and the characters since they were kinda bland (which is a valid reason) but that doesn't mean that it is a bad game. I think that the only bad main Final Fantasy is 13 and 14 (A Realm Reborn is alright but I don't really care for it due to being too casual which turned me off from the game. )

Cloud is one of the two whiniest emo wuss characters in existence, the other one is in the same game and spends all his time acting like a whiny momma's boy. The entire game is basically who can whine the most.
People actually try to call Squall emo... it's like they don't know what the word means. Squall is an introvert, not an emo, he bottles his emotion. Cloud whines about every little detail. Hell even Advent Children addresses his whiny-ness.

18 Xbots (Xbox Fans)

I don't mind the Xbox fanboys, I love some Xbox consoles too, like Xbox (2001), Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
But the haters are usually PlayStation Fanboys who always claim Sony is the best and has zero flaws and never fails.
What was the PlayStation 4 Pro, a duplicate of the Xbox One S. I like PlayStation and Xbox but those Xbox haters need to get it together.

Believe anything positive about the console without looking it up if it is true. They spread lies and can't back up their claim with reliable sources.

They are still denying that the console has no value compared to Wii U, PS4 and the PC and are rather satisfied with Halo and time-exclusives.

Xbox suffered from the duke controller being oversized, after the S controller.. meh it was better.

360 suffered from the RROD thanks to Microsoft rushing the console too fast, but when it got fixed, there was the Kinect, but no one cared, it was awesome.

XB1 Great console, except that it's marketed as a home console not a cable box, DRM, so many issues, it was a disaster.

19 Bendy Fans

I simply cannot believe how popular this game has become. I think it maybe because of the old cartoon style going on. (Most old cartoons nowadays have bad fanbases, or at least just their modern-day fanbases are bad)

This fandom is pissing me off. Way to mush fan girl putting shipping and Crossover.

Honestly this is the least cringy out of the sour batch of indie fanbases.

I'd say it's the bottom. So it's still enjoyable without a cringe fanbase

20 Overwatch Fans

They call every game at all similar to Overwatch a ripoff. *cough* *cough* Paladins *cough* suffered the most.

Yes like the idiot named tracer757 calls all games a ripoff of overwatch. He even said infinity war is a ripoff of overwatch

Bring up TF2 to an Overwatch fan, and the violence will go nuclear. Bring up Overwatch to a TF2 fan, same thing.

21 Among Us Fans

Lelelele sus is so funny ecks dee!

Seriously, I can't go five seconds on the internet without seeing those stupid blobby crewmates or hearing the term "sus", no matter how separate the topic may be from this argument simulator.

22 Final Fantasy VI Fans

FF6 is the most overrated FF in the series.

While not bad it's more middle of the road.

There are 2 major problems with the game. 1) There are too many party members and only enough screen time to give them 'A' moment for character development, so they come across more as caricatures than actual characters. 2) They story and writing is that of a Saturday morning cartoon. It deals with some pretty heavy themes but in the goofiest way possible which really detracts from it.

I think the majority of people claiming it's the best are only repeating what others on the internet have said and didn't play it for themselves.

It's not the best game geez. They always criticize newer games and say how it will never be as good as 6's. They also send death threats to those who can't stand them. I'm glad someone made a list about them. they deserved it

The worse ones are Kefka fans.

23 Daisy Fans

There are things I dislike about the fandom.
I had many arguments with them and it's so unpleasant.
When I was a Rosalina and Peach fan, there are 3 Daisy fans that stalk me. My name was Rosalina and Peach and I had a YouTube channel. They stalked me and was ready to attack if I post a video of Daisy. I can't stand how rude they are. Then I made positive comments about Rosalina and they tried to go against my comment and shove Daisy down my throat. One Daisy fan asked why I hated Daisy and I said "Because of the fandom" guess what they said after that? "That's too bad." Then paragraph after paragraph they explain how Rosalina is worse when they are acting like them.
There's another one that didn't like me because I didn't like Daisy. I was like, "You know what screw you Daisy fans"
Then on Deviantart they are WORSE. You see them complaining about Rosalina taking Daisy's spot and Rosalina getting too much praise and saying rude stuff about Rosalina that I was just like seriously? Then I commented on someone's Hi I'm Daisy post. I said Hi I'm Daisy is overrated because the fans always say that. Then some fan harassed me and then blocked me afterwards so I won't harass back.
Another one was on Swaggot's video Hi I'm Daisy Rosalina diss. A bunch of losers were attacking me because I said something about Daisy being hated because of them. It was so bad that I deleted that comment. And now on here, they're worse. I can't believe how a good character would have such a destructive, obnoxious, whiny, moronic, horrible, cancerous fandom.

24 Tracer and Widowmaker Shippers

These people ship 2 characters who are enemy's they hate each other. I hated this ship ever since before blizzard revealed tracer to be with Emily not widowmaker who just wants to kill her and that she wasn't with widowmaker even though they hate each other. I hate this ship so much.

25 Doki Doki Fans

Weeaboos and Kids ruin it, and spam "Just Monika" even though it's meant to make fun of them and visual novels in general but that didn't work and took it seriously thanks to Matt Patt, now there is 9 year olds in the Anime community.

Doki doki literature club is worst then the princess peach haters. If they see a yandere video or post or someone who has the name monica, the annoying fans spam the word just monika. in fact it is supposed to be spelled MONICA not monika. one of my favorite tumblr people was forced to draw ddlc and I feel bad for her. also the mambo n.5 song was ruined because of a boring and stupid animation meme that had ddlc in it.

Now I love this game as much as anyone else. But the community is just annoying as hell.
