    yes, a post on a video game forum is definitely the equal to religious belief, thanks brosef

    Teefs you should know about strawmen

    c'mon now
    the analogy of video game fanboys to religious zealots is absolutely too extreme to be taken seriously in any manner why are you people doing this

    perhaps you are taking a comparison of different sorts of zealotry and how i am unable to really get them too seriously

    or

    perhaps

    you are just on the rag

    look i don't know here

    yes comparing liking/disliking video games to religious zealotry is totally not a huge, illogical step

    thanks, pony

    He was comparing fanboyism to zealotry and I really don't see that as being terribly far off.
    its entirely off jesus christ

    what kind of disconnect with reality do you have that you actually compare entertainment and squabbles over that to fucking religion come the fuck on, man

    Because it is the same mindset? He's not talking about religion, he's talking about extremism. Xenophobia, nationalism, fanaticism, these are all cards from the same deck. Fanboyism displays many similar traits to these concepts. I'm not saying that its not a bit overboard to draw the parallel, but I am saying that it assuredly makes sense.
    But the logical leap is so fucking extreme and ridiculous that the parallel he attempted to draw is fucking retarded

    I just don't see it that way. He was drawing a parallel to a form of extremism. Admittedly his choice for comparison was extreme, but it was an entirely valid point to make regardless. The aforementioned extremist conditions are all the same thing but carried out in different mediums. Relegion has ferver, the ethnic supremacist has xenophobia ect ect.

    I am sorry, but I cannot call his post absurd simply for drawing an over-the-top comparison in order to further reinforce his belief. I mean, come on, this is Pony. He will mention his nonspecific but potent religious convictions if he deems it necessary, or he will bring it up, because of their potency. Because he sees it important, or whatever. You should come to expect this and not blow up when he seeks the most readily available religious comparison.

    Which is better, religious fanaticism or video game fanboyism?

    The fanboys have neat gadgets but the religious' get all the hot naked virgins.

    That's a different sort of "Star Wars vs Star Trek" than what is usually talked about by nerds, Pony.

    They usually talk about if they fought, who would win.

    And somehow religious extremism and intolerance is not just as childish?

    I'd call all of it shitty, reactionary, unnecessary and entirely too subjective for anyone or any group to presume to pass judgement.

    Which was his entire point, but whatever.

    theoretical super-hero fights especially make my brain frown, since i've always encountered comic book fans who are into that sort of conversation

    like, when it's a playful conversation and you're taking some fun out of it, i guess i can see it

    i mean, not my thing, but whatever, they're nerds having fun, okay

    it's when they cross over and start being ANGRY AND INTENSE about it and start jutting fingers at each other and referencing specific issues and it's like

    wait

    guys are you even having fun with this anymore or are you now just pissed that he won't admit that nick fury could beat batman

    because when it stops being funny, it starts being sad

    Well unlike comic book super-heroes, for whom the laws of physics have no meaning and they can bend them to their will, Star Wars and Star Trek can have hard information inferred from on-screen evidence to calculate ship acceleration, weapon strength, stuff like that. Still extremely geeky, though it requires geeks who have physics degrees. :P
