Top 10 Proofs that Nintendo's Fanbase is Almost as Stupid as Its Haters

xandermartin98

The Top Ten

1 They actually wholeheartedly supported Pokémon GO, even after all of the lethal car accidents it caused

This item is stupid. As much as I hate to say it, it is the PLAYER's fault for not looking ahead! Pokemon GO is a VIDEO GAME with no bad messages, and it doesn't encourage violence in any way.
Let me give you this: If I was driving a car using all the signals, making turns at the right times, and following the speed limit, then all of a sudden a little kid runs in front of me and I hit him, whose fault is it? The KID'S, or if we want to be specific the PARENT'S for not monitoring their child. I, the driver, was being good, and somebody else was doing something bad, but by your logic I have to be punished, This list item reminds me of that court case a couple years back where someone sued McDonald's for "making" them fat.

Tl;dr: It is the player's fault for any injuries caused by this game. Heck, the app even tells you to WATCH YOUR SURROUNDINGS. It's amazing what people will do to take blame off themselves - BTIV (I'm logged out lol.

Would it be Youtube's fault if I was watching a video and walked into the street like a dumbass with the phone in my face? Why should Pokemon Go be any different? - Zach808

2 Claiming that the Metroid series needed to die just because of Other M existing
3 They constantly complain about Nintendo obsessively pampering its Mario/Zelda/Pokémon trio of franchises and ignoring everything else, despite VERY clearly being among the main contributors to the problem

Every publisher does this. Sega milks Sonic to death, Activision milks Call of Duty, etc. Though rather than complain, maybe try out games from different publishers. - Zach808

4 The AM2R vs Samus Returns controversy, in which the former got hated on just for being a fangame while the latter got hated on just for not having the former packaged into it
5 "Melee is the only good Smash Bros game because it's the only one where I get to show off my super-hardcore MLG tournament wavedashing pro strats and play exclusively as Fox and Falco"
6 Mario VS Luigi controversy
7 Earthbound fantards that constantly talk trash about Undertale even though it's systematically designed from the ground up to be the absolute PERFECT game for them
8 "Halo is a ripoff of Metroid"
9 When presented with the clichéd "bad graphics" argument, they often overlook that literally the ONLY reason Nintendo games look as good as they do is because of their art styles
10 Reggie Memes

The Contenders

11 Mario/Zelda CD-i Memes

Hey, it's not the fans' fault that these games are so bad they're amazing. - Zach808

12 Youtube Poop and SMG4

I like SMG4, but I'm not like THOSE Nintendo fanboys. - TheYoshiPyro64

13 "Mario Kart 8 is bad just because the character roster is bad"

THIS! OH MY GOD SO THIS! - cjWriter1997

I hate the character roster, but I don't hate the ENTIRE game because of one bad thing. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

14 "Parappa The Rapper's art style is a ripoff of Paper Mario"

Actually the other way around - xandermartin98

15 The Undertale fandom making brain fetishism a thing in both fanart and fanfiction, then also spreading it into the Parappa/Lammy fandom as well
16 Defending the Wii as having a good overall game library when it's a huge part of the reason Nintendo removed the "Quality" part from its Official Seal
17 Hating on Wind Waker for being too cartoony, then hating on Majora's Mask and Twilight Princess for being too edgy
18 The common belief amongst them that essentially every non-Nintendo game is automatically inferior to Nintendo games
19 They judge every new installment to their favorite franchises based largely on how much it strokes their nostalgic egos, then complain that it feels "too much the same"

You just can't please them lol. Anytime I see a person hating on a new game I just leave whatever site I'm on, because there is a 99.99% chance they're like this. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

20 Ocarina Of Time fanboys

They just need to die out. We get it, it was innovative. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

21 Miiverse community
22 They complain about other videogame fanbases being immature, then refer to Call Of Duty as Cacadoodie and think Conker's BFD is the funniest game ever made

Ikr? Not everyone who plays Call of Duty is 8 years old. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

23 Whenever presented with the very true "Nintendo games have gotten too easy" argument, they counter it using games from the three-decade old NES console

"Very true"? That is YOUR opinion. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

24 They complain about Microsoft and Sony focusing too much on graphics, yet praise games like Super Mario Galaxy and Mario Kart 8 for the same reason
25 Smash Bros Memes
26 Major-league Mario Kart/Smash Bros tournament players
27 "Smash 4 and Mario Kart 8 are bad because I have to pay for DLC"

I hate these types of people too. Nobody asked you to pay for it. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

28 Many of them unironically think that the Nintendo 64 airplane flightstick is a good controller
29 Claiming with a straight face that the Wii U and Nintendo Switch are up-to-date consoles
30 "Horizon Zero Dawn is a ripoff of Breath Of The Wild"
31 "Metroid is a ripoff of Zelda"
32 "Sonic is a ripoff of Mario"
33 Sammyclassic Sonicfan

If his name says "Sonicfan" then why is he on here? - BlueTopazIceVanilla

34 NEOgaf
35 "Ockarina" of Time
36 "Metroid is too hard"
37 Skyward Sword haters
38 "Danganronpa is a ripoff of Phoenix Wright"
39 They think that relatively mediocre games like Metroid Other M and Paper Mario Sticker Star are legitimately among the worst ever created

I knew these games were unpopular, but worst ever created? These people must not play a lot of video games. The only first-party Nintendo game I'd consider even close to worst of all time territory is the god-awful cash grab known as 1-2 Switch. - Zach808

40 Constantly hating on games before they even get released

Melee, Metroid, and Star Fox fans in a nutshell - BlueTopazIceVanilla

41 "Super Metroid and Prime 1 are the only true Metroid games"

I hate this. They just aren't ready for a tiny change. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

42 "Ocarina Of Time and Link To The Past are the only true Zelda games"
43 Arguing that the original Kirby Super Star is better than its Ultra remake
44 "I would rather play the original Metroid 2 than AM2R"
45 "Kirby Super Star is better than both Return To Dreamland and Planet Robobot combined"
46 Apparently, having a dark world is considered okay in Zelda games but not in Metroid ones
47 Complain about Nintendo charging way too much for its games, then charging hundreds of dollars for games like Earthbound for literally no other reason than their classic status
48 Ridley Is Too Big meme
49 "Why can't Metroid crawl?"
50 The world's longest fanfiction is an autistic Super Smash Bros self-insert fic
