Why is platform fanboyism a thing? Like at all?

Why do people defend their purchase and argue with other platform owners over exclusivity? "My console has Bloodborne!" "Mine has Halo!" "Mine has Star Citizen!"

Shouldn't everyone be protesting and advocating against exclusive games so that any device owner can play whatever they want and not be restricted by their platform of choice?
>>
No that's fucking retarded. I should have something to lord over those douchebags.
>>
The thing about exclusivity is that sometimes its about an ip owned by someone who also owns the platformes like how Nintendo owns Mario

Poor people desperately need to make themselves feel better than other poor people.

It's not happening because >>322812238 so just buy every console you want and let the peasants bicker and scrap.

Console children can't stop gagging on corporate cock. That's why.

around 85% of it is a shitposting meme
the rest is people needing to justify their choices

Not gonna bother replying to the first half, but on the note of exclusivity, it's a good thing, not a bad thing.

If every game ever was on every console ever, there'd be such varying price points that eventually each company would just start colluding with each other to keep prices high.

Like, in all honesty, even as it is now where 90% of games are mulyiplat, thery're still finding ways to garner "exclusive" content and continue to hike up prices.

PC gaming damaged the gaming industry, I don't fanboy I just don't like PC users who are ignorant to this fact.

Platform fanboyism is one part kids/poorfags who shill for their platform because they don't have any of the others and one part butthurt PC mustards who shit on everything period.
>>

It's all just retardation.

FTFY

Everything would have been better with just the option to plug a controller into a PC and nothing else. We would be rid of 'services' such as XBOX Live Gold and PS'shitfuckohgodwhy'N, exclusive titles, all of it.
