My thoughts about fanboys have been inspired by a tweet posted by John Linneman saying:
I’ve been thinking and self-reflecting. Fanboys and the vibes they bring with them have been around for as long as gaming has. While John’s theory could absolutely be accurate, or at least one of the accurate ones, I think there is more to it. Let’s just get this out of the way: age is not a factor. If you’ve been around long enough since the internet allowed any voice to be spread, you’ll know that to be a fanboy is like being a college student, it’s never too late.
