Everybody's always talking about the worst fanbase on /v/. What's the best fanbase?
Yeah because all they do now is look at lewd pictures of zero suit samus. Literally no discussion about games anymore. Yeah what a shitty example. You are most likely one of them.
To add, I think it helps that they're all unified by a common opinion: Other M sucks. It's so bad that shit posters can't even start a fight about it like Brawl with Smash fans.
>Everybody's always talking about the worst fanbase on /v/.
Every fanbase on /v/ is shit, the best fanbases are on /vg/ they are circlejerking to their games and their waifus and don't piss other people off.
There's always that stray shitposter that posts that one comic about Samus shitting and pissing herself, but other than that, they usually keep to themselves and talk about what they want in the new games.
Easily, Fallout (read:No Mutants Allowed mesaage board)
Ever since the weekend web about them, esp that one post that is (sometimes) still used as a meme here...
... My gos... I just want to strangle that one smug self satisfied bastard
I always like Thief threads. Little shitposting, even after Thi4f, just nice talk about great games and their fan missions, and the Dark Mod. I don't care who's the best or worse fanbase but that jumped to mind.
friendliest fanbase, friendliest generals
them niggas was fun to post with
I stopped playing that game though
It's like you've never seen The King of Kong.
>implying those replies are from people that play MGS
Please, you must be new. MGS has been on PC before with MGS1 and MGS2.
And with MGS2 there were a shitfuck of discussions about politics, philosophy and ethics.
So how is PC to blame now when before there never was any problem?
It's just shitposters. And considering that MGSV is for all systems, 5 systems, except one, I think it's easy to guess what kind of fanbase is behind the shitposting and trolling.
well when i was in the heat of it shitposting was very high but it wasn't very good shitposting, just things like site revamps and whatever
but everyone is definitely very amicable, maybe not the most personable community but no one from the fgc i know has been bellicose
I have to agree, I haven't seen a DD thread that had people shitposting yet.
Metal Gear fanbase.
Or, at least, used to be. Now every thread is filled is fucking retards who won't stop talking about Console/PC war horseshit.
I want all of them to burn in an inferno.
The Jojo fanbase. We're literally the best fanbase on this entire shitty board.
I'd say flight sim fans are pretty up there. You know the ones. Like middle aged guys who build 747 cockpits in their basement. The only bad thing I can say about them, is some of them seem to think playing MS Flight Simulator makes them just as qualified as real pilots, as if their in-game flight hours mean jack shit, but it's far less cringey than Kingdom Hearts fanfic, I suppose.
>What's the difference whether or not the fucktards are "the true fanbase" or not
Because the thread is about the fanbase not the falseflagging faggots that pretend to be the fanbase
Go be assblasted somewhere else.
because everyone can agree that LoL, HotS, SC, and fightan are shit
>The Great Banana Split
Every fucking time holy fuck
They went to /vg/?
They give you tilesets if you ask for tilesets. They still see you as a pathetic grafix-thumping peasant I'm sure, but it's better than not playing.
FORGOT MY CAPLOCKS KEY KID
GO BACK TO FUCKING /VG/ NOBODY LIKES ASSFAGGOTS PLAYERS HERE NOT EVEN OTHER ASSFAGGOTS PLAYERS, HENCE YOU ATTACKING LOL WELL FUCK YOU KID
I PLAY DOTA AND I'D LIKE TO SEE YOU DEAD FAGGOT
When the same 5 people aren't constantly talking about how awakening is shit/ruined everything/saved everything/Lucina is cute, the Fire Emblem fanbase is the chillest fucking group.
>takes shit easy
>okay most of the time they aren't casual
>legit discussions of gameplay merits sometimes
DK might be better, though.
This goes by quality of threads.
Metal Gear fans.
Dragons Dogma fans.
Unreal fans (MOSTLY).
Splinter Cell fans.
Starcraft fans (MOSTLY).
Devil May Cry fans.
>Pretty cool tier
Resident Evil fans.
Most Nintendo properties fans.
Silent Hill fans.
>Holy shit just shut the fuck up tier
Fighting game fans (Other than Third Strike).
Elder Scroll fans.
Mass Effect fans.
This is objective fact.
SMT sans Nocturnebabbies
Fire Emblem sans Waifus
DK sans Dong memes.
JoJo sans Animefags
It's [s4s] the fandom, what more could you want?
>Better be fucking trolling m8..
Hey, Starfox threads are pretty neat. The threads about the 3D Mario games like Sunshine/Galaxy/64/etc are pretty good as well.
2D mario and zelda are shit threads, but that's just by virtue of being too goddamn big for their own good.
>Welp, you have a point. Why are smash autists so fucking annoying?
Don't know. But god help them.
>How can you call them good people
But aren't YOU calling them good people?
Not really what I meant by "2D mario". I'm talking about 1/2/3/World/NEW/etc.
They're always the worst. No actual discussion. Just a bunch of people talking about how terrible they are because they had a goddamn genesis or whatever.
SRPG fans are pretty top tier in my estimation. It's not as common on /v/ anymore, but no other genre base break console lines as much. Those fuckers recommend every good game under the sun, regardless of platform, and that's a badge of honor in this shitheap.
>Starfox threads are pretty neat
The earliest I remember was a mix of meme-esque linequoting and discussion of the best stages of Star Fox 64.
Then it was Krystal hate threads.
Mind you, there was always sprinkles of porn involved in both.
Then it was FemFox threads.
And now it's just flat-out furshit threads.
>all these nintendo babbies nominating their own circlejerks acting like they're the cream of the crop
at least other consolefags aren't as full of themselves
the best fanbase is non-console players who love genres barring those "invented" in the last 5 years ala LoL
Late night Zelda threads continue to be the best thing on /v/ just like they always have been.
Agreed. Guess I just didn't think of 'em. Hard to name everyone.
Beat em up? Sure. Shoot em up? EHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. They're nice, but bizarre. Maybe just not for me. I dunno.
I can't speak for your experience, but I've been in super solid Star Fox threads with basically no shitposting or porn, aside from maybe one or two beefcake pictures.
>People bitching about Other M
>People bitching about Fusion
>People bitching about Prime
>People dumping Samus porn
>People referencing the comic as a good example of characterization when in fact they have never read it, and it basically does the same nonsense as M:OM
>"ACfag" "ACfag" "ACfag"
>WHICH SUIT IS UR FAVORUTIEEEE
Oh yeah metroid threads are just amazing you are so right why didn't i see it earlier
I just think Shmups fall into the same category as the other 2 I mentioned, in that they aren't preoccupied with console wars. Definitely an odd bunch, but I probably only think that because I can't for the life of me get into a shmup. They just aren't fun to me.
>Starfox threads are pretty neat
All the SF threads i've seen are filled to the brim with furry porn dumping
Sometimes people propose "what could nintendo do for the next Starfox game", and those times are neat, but the furfaggotry is just too much
>The threads about the 3D Mario games like Sunshine/Galaxy/64/etc are pretty good as well.
I'll give you that, people are generally chill, with some occasions of "my 3D mario is harder than your 3D mario", but they're mostly chill
Monster Hunter, STALKER, Pikmin, MGS, W101 and every franchise that hasn't had a new game made in the last 5 years
Yume Nikki & Friends threads.
It helps that they usually pop up right in the middle of the night. They almost always go 300+ replies, are quite rare, and are full of tons of great discussion and fanart.
> Western FGC literally the only reason Fighting Games still get localized outside of Japan.
I don't know, until any other community saves a genre of videogames from extinction, It's the FGC.
Dwarf Fortress fans are friendly, freely acknowledge the flaws in their game, and are always willing to give helpful advice.
The only good fanbase left on /v/ is the few remaining scraps of the anti-Xbox fanbase. The rest of /v/ is so enamored with MCC and Sunset Overdrive that it's extremely refreshing to see a few people left who aren't Microshills.
B.A.T. fanbase is pretty fucking awesome.
Mostly because it's comprised of just me.
>The rest of /v/ is so enamored with MCC and Sunset Overdrive that it's extremely refreshing to see a few people left who aren't Microshills.
Did you come from another dimension or something? /v/ has been mostly anti xbox/microsoft since the launch of the original Xbox. Any discussion I see is either ignored or shitposted to death
>any attempt at an anti-Microsoft thread gets derailed by Microshills
>any attempt at derailing an obvious Microsoft shilling thread gets deleted by mods
>any attempt at positively discussing the Wii U or PS4 gets shit on in favor of the Xbox one
>b-but /v/ isn't MicroGAF at all!
>tfw playing Dragon's Dogma right now
I came to post this.
By a shot one of, if not the best fanbase.
Cave Story has a great following too
>Cave Story has a great following too
Cave Story fans get extremely indignant when you say anything negative about Pixel or suggest that CS isn't the greatest indie game of all time. You can also derail a thread just by mentioning Nicalis.
Whoa holy shit a fanbase that goes to the thread of the games they actually like instead of shitposting wildly
what a fucking concept you neandertal
And for the record, everyone hates at least one of the games each.
/vr/ is basically oldfags that are always on topic. /vr/-tan's radical bro demeanor really is an accurate projection of its users. It's more or less a utopian version of /v/, except that it is kind of slow. When it started out it was a bit raucous with people arguing about what was or wasn't /vr/, but now it is settled down. That's not to say it doesn't have bitching about emulators and CRTs and whatnot, but it's not the kind of zero-quality shitposting you'd see here.
>Souls fans in Tolerable tier
Feels a bit strange, since souls threads these days are either mild and pleasant, or maximum shitpost. Mostly the latter, unfortunately, so it works I guess.
I miss Demon's Souls general.
Artificial Academy, Morrowind, /vr/, MGS, FO1/2/New Vegas, STALKER
JRPG, FO3, Civilization, Rocksteady Batman, VtmB, Metro
TF2, MOBA, /vp/, Smash, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, WoW, Borderlands, Silent Hill, Halo, Let's Play Horror, Zelda
>BURNING IN HELL WITH SATAN TIER
>The Final Fantasy Meeting
>The Dragon Quest Meeting
Idorts, or people who only enter threads that they have a personal interest in and not to shit on the subject matter.
>Maple Story /v/ fanbase
Wasn't there a general for it? I never looked at it so I can't speak for how god awful they probably were, but any time I see a Maple Story thread on /v/. it's usually rather tame, with people just moping about the good old days.
Not really sure what warrants beyond shit tier.
Is this is going as far as 4chan goes, or just in general?
>Doomworld's Cacowards acknowledges /vr/
>Local /vr/etard takes two Cacowards this year
Apart from BD drama they're pretty good
I'm not sure about calling them best, but they're definitely a lot better than others
Apart from being upset about Wario's representation in non-PM Smash everyone is otherwise chill as fuck
People in Monster Hunter threads are quite helpful too
Most idorts are pretty good too if they're not screaming about remorse
Mario Hoops and Fortune Street are games with some crossover characters
You know what's worse than moba fanbase? Moba haters. You can't have any moba discussion without a bunch of faggots claiming ">assfaggots", "go back to /vg/", or a rant about how much of a casualized version of an RTS any moba is (despite being totally different genres).
It seems that this days it's hard just to hide or ignore a thread of a subject you don't like / don't know shit about instead of shitposting it and making this board worse every single fucking day.
I can agree with this, when there isn't rampant shitposting, they actually have good discussions on gameplay and mechanics.
IRL too, the FGC is really chill in every experience I've had with them.
That includes Smash, mainly Melee, though the shitposting is strong with smash threads
By virtue of being literally the worst there is, it becomes the best.
You could say the most agreeable shit ever in that game and someone is gonna get flustered about it. It's great.
There's barely any racing threads, let along F-Zero or Wipeout threads
Can you even remember the last time we had a Nintendo racer's thread that wasn't about Mario Kart?
Unbelievably nitpicky, and flip the fuck out if you call their games "party games"
Melee, Brawl, Other M, Smash 4. It's all the same fucking game. Yet they'll sperg the hell out and go on and on about how minor changes, make the games drastically different.
They're the most insecure fanbase too. I consider the games to be party games. The fanbase somehow perceives this as insulting because it diminish's the quality/credibility of their tournament scene....which is ridiculous. It's a game made for children. Who cares what genre it is as long as you're having fun?
Pokemon is a close second, but only because of Smogon. They ban everything they can't figure out how to counter, and everyone uses the same copypasta teams, thanks to this.
I love both smash and pokemon, but they're games made for children. The notion of having "tier lists" in a kids game is absurd. Just acknowledge you're manchildren, stop overthinking things, and enjoy your fucking video games.
Nintendo. Really, amiibos? Like, fucking really?
Also, pretty much everyone in the FFXIV and GW2 general... Fucking Christ.
Always had a good time in Mortal Kombat threads.
