Top 10 Video Game Companies With the Most Annoying Fanbases
The Top Ten
I understand the point of this list, but it seems rather unnecessary to include Activision or Sega on this list, since it's really just one franchise of each of the two game companies that have the very annoying fans. Have you ever heard of very annoying fans of Shenmue, Tony Hawk Pro Skater, Jet Grind Radio, Vectorman, or Virtua Fighter?
They have a lot of once a year games like Call of Duty and skylanders that died
Call of Duty fanboys... I don't think I need to explain anything more than that. - Mcgillacuddy
Call of Duty fanbase is nowhere near as big as it used to be few years ago, at this point they're harmless, compared to Fortnite and PUBG communities.
Stupid company making people pay $60 on a upgrade for a weapon in a video game. - RadioHead03
Yes, EA has a fanbase. Sounds crazy, I know, but that fanbase revolves around their SPORTS games. Every year, idiots like vulnerable children, gamblers, and sports betters pander to the laziness of roster updates for every sports game every year, and for full price. Full prices for a series that is even more repetitive than Call of Duty and more manipulative and greedy, luring these people into purchasing expensive microtransactions and making EA's microtransaction system in these games alone the most profitable practice they have, earning more than $100M ever year. Dumb ass NBA 2K fans, Madden fans, and ESPECIALLY FIFA fans constantly buy into these sinister Pay 2 Win features every YEAR. So many people around the world just being retarded. I'm so done! EA needs to die already. I'm so done with this god damn company! Kill them already. Jesus bro, it's like I'm watching a dog slowly bleed out with all of its legs chopped off. Just die already! - Mcgillacuddy

Okay, I like Nintendo. They make great games. They make fun games, but fans treat them as the GODS of the gaming industry. Like any other gaming company, they have their flaws. Stop treating them like every single game they make is a masterpiece! I also can't stand Mario Kart fans! There are kart games that are better than ANYTHING Mario Kart has released (CTR, Sonic & All-Stars Racing), but every time they do release, people always use MK as the standard to judging the game instead of looking at it as its own thing. Gaming media like IGN and Gamespot ALWAYS mention MK whenever they review a kart game, always pandering to that series. Just shut the hell up about Mario Kart already! Nintendo is a great company, but they are not PERFECT. - Mcgillacuddy
I am a Mario Kart fan myself. I am not offended by this comment, as I agree with the judging and stuff. I do judge and look at the games themselves, but at least I am not those controversial whippersnappers. I don't mind if everyone mentions Mario Kart, unless it is constantly.
I don't think every game is perfect, but I see what you are pointing out. - DKartWoomy
Their games suck,it's fact,just because the game is old doesn't mean it's good.
I won't deny how revolutionary they've been to the gaming industry back in the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s, nor how ridiculously top-notch most of their game library in general has been in terms of overall quality (Super Metroid being released all the way back in 1994 and single-handedly becoming one of THE all-time largest sub-franchises in video game history, along with 1990's Super Mario World, thanks to ROM hacks, for example)...
but my GOD, has this company devolved into a complete nostalgia-obsessed, Mario-milking meme-lord (as much as I love the new Smash Bros games, the absolutely RIDICULOUS amount of hype surrounding those games isn't exactly helping Nintendo's case in that regard either, nor is the fact that they are STILL making embarrassingly underpowered consoles apart from the 3DS; seriously, how DARE they after how powerful the Gamecube was for its time) - xandermartin98
I'm a huge Nintendo fan. I spend a lot of time with the Nintendo community and I can say from experience that they can be awfully annoying. - Atham
The Sonic the Hedgehog franchise has one of the worst fanbases in the gaming industry. Okay, yeah, I do love the Sonic franchise. I loved Sonic CD, Sonic 3, Generations, Mania, All-Stars Racing, Colors, Riders, Rush, Unleashed... well, yeah the series has had a lot of great releases under its belt, but it's also had AWFUL releases! Sonic Forces is one of the most overrated games I've ever played, and it's all thanks to the heavily persistent fanbase, trying so hard to convince you that the game brought the series back. No. No it didn't. Sonic Mania is what brought it back. Sonic Forces is an unfinished mess. It's not crazy bad, but if you're comparing it to the standards of Sonic Generations or Unleashed, that game ain't shizz. - Mcgillacuddy
It's kind of overrated but I like Project Diva x and Project Mirai. - Mocchiko
Dude you sound upset over petty things, is something bothering you?
I'm just explaining how I feel about these things. It makes the list more interesting and relatable for the masses. - Mcgillacuddy
Especially back in the 90s when they we're super biased towards Nintendo. - LightningStrike
I've seen some of the best examples of the worst fanbases with Microsoft. I've seen it with Sony's fanbase too, but Microsoft fanboys are on another level when it comes to being the worst fanbase. They keep talking about the Xbox One X and it's 4K 60 fps. Worst part is, they keep harassing gamers who bought a PS4 instead of an Xbox One. Like seriously, those Microsoft fanboys forget the bigger picture and what really matters, which is that it doesn't matter which console people use. It's a matter of taste. It's like they need validation for the choice they made when they bought an Xbox. - RogerMcBaloney
Microsoft also has a terrible fanbase. - RadioHead03
Like Activision, I'll sum it up with this:
"NBA 2K fanboys"
No need to say anymore than that. - Mcgillacuddy
Square Enix is a very reliable company. I've always been a Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts fan, and they've released many other outstanding games like Tomb Raider, NieR: Automata, and Hitman. But like Nintendo, their major fanbase is quite annoying as they treat the company like they're so perfect, yet they are NOT. They've released many stinkers in their lineup, and honestly, I actually believe that they are starting to veer off too much into paid DLC practices. - Mcgillacuddy
Nah, more like one of the most annoying hater bases
These are the guys who made Fortnite. Enough said, really.
Every person that plays ubi games is toxic including me
Uninspired, boring, repetitive games with crappy online that try to make up for it with excessive violence.
I guess I am annoying as well, because I am a die-hard fan of Rockstar Games. They screwed up with Red Dead Online, but I honestly could care less because the base game is outstanding, and I fully trust them with Grand Theft Auto VI. Again, considering their failure with Red Dead Online, they aren't perfect like any company out there. They have their flaws, but they still are a very dedicated company that actually gives a crap about giving audiences some solid material instead of half-assing everything they do like other companies. - Mcgillacuddy
Does not need to be #2 on the best game companies list, but thanks to its abundance of annoying fans, it is.
Roger McBaloney and Mcgillacuddy are prime examples. They and their comments do not help Rockstar's case.
Salty kids everywhere - wyanut122
Mega Man and Street Fighter have good fanbases
I hateee it!
They always start fights with the Nintendo and Microsoft fandoms and it's annoying. - myusernameisthis
Their fanbase defends everything they do including (they fixed some things):
Blocking Fortnite Accounts
Refusing to add cross play
Sony has gone downhill ever since they moved to Silicon Valley. And let me tell you three abbreviations: SJW. They censored games and they support the minority of the group to the Internet. My PS3 don't have censored games, so thank god. Thankfully, I don't want a PS4 after hearing this. :/ - yamionthetrap
Annoying fanbase. They support SJWs and they are ok with Sony censoring games. - RogerMcBaloney
When Fallout 76 was announced at E3 last year, a lot of fanboys were angry at those who did not want an online-only Fallout and even said "Todd Howard said you can play solo". That's not single-player or offline, its STILL online! I'm in the 50% who did not want an online Fallout...
Say hello to the Parappa fandom - xandermartin98
Fanbase claims the company is modest and generous but it isn't. And they praise the games as second coming of Christ! If your games are so great as you say, doesn't mean that games from other companies are worse than games from your "lord and saviour of video games" company!
PS: Geralt is WEAK! Just like Infinite from Sonic Forces ;p
Only people who play these games are 8 year olds
Git good casul
