I've been watching a lot of trailers for various games lately, new and old. Sometimes to listen to the music, or sometimes to see the awesome CG effects...
Then you scroll down to the YouTube comments. "This game isn't what it used to be", or "This company doesn't care about us fans", or the especially wonderful "This game is absolute shit even though I've not played it and I've only seen an accumulated 30 seconds of dialogue but I know for sure that the story is shit too"...

So I have to ask: What's the absolute WORST fanbase in gaming? And please, elaborate your opinion.

I'd have to say it's Final Fantasy. Many in that fanbase has a different opinion on which game is the best out of all of them... Unless of course, you choose NOT to ignore the massive nostalgia boners for FFVII.
Every game in the series is different, and yet everyone who's ever played a Final Fantasy game will complain with each new iteration that "Square's losing their touch". It's completely impossible to please all of an entire fanbase, but Final Fantasy takes that to an entirely new level. (Again, FFVII nostalgia boners.)

That's just me though. Whaddyou think?

LOL or maybe DOTA, plus a lot of the Dark Souls players who like to come and hate on games like Elder Scrolls and other one's like it for being too easy.

Well Final Fantasy did lose their touch imo but I don't feel like debating with someone who is upset with fans who like a game from the past. Maybe they actually you know, liked FF7 because it's a good game?

Anyways, I'd say Kantai Collection. I still don't understand it

Other than the typical Dota 2 and LoL examples, I'll say Devil May Cry fans.

Look, DmC is very different (yet similar) from the original Devil May Cry games and Dante looks different as well. But one thing's for sure, the game is not what many would consider a 'bad' game. I think certain aspects of the reboot even surpassed the original games, especially the art.

The Mario fanbase. Except for Super Mario 3D World, every main Mario game in recent years has been the same, much like COD and EA games (and lets not forget all the sports/party spin offs that milk the franchise even more), yet people eat them up and get so defensive when you call out facts like this.

What tends to happen in a longrunning series is a fandom's often tied with age.

This is just a big generalization, but:
- People who like FF1-FF9 were most likely born in the mid 1980s to early 1990s.
- People who like FF10+ were most likely born in the mid 1990s.
- People born in the late 1990s to early 2000s do not even like Final Fantasy; this is why Square is trying to push the open world aspect of FF15 to get the younger generation more interested in the series, so that they can secure future customers.

It's like if FF7 was my first FF and my favorite, I can't like other FF games.

The only ones I don't like are 6 and 12 (and possibly 11).

So at the current moment my least favorite fandom is the anti-fandom.

I hate Touhou, and I hate Touhou fans.

I also hate people that obsess over Earthbound, and the Mother series.

You mean the ones that actually like Sonic 06, or the furry ones? Because they're both in the minority, as Cake said.

The fans are annoying, but I hate Touhou mostly because the girls are really ugly.

I assumed Baha was referring to the furries.

You hardly see them in video game/anime/entertainment/etc. forums, but where you do see them most are in flash communities.

Well, the call of duty fanbase was good to a point and then it turned to shit so I guess I will go with that. My other least favorite fanbase is probably pc gamers, as just the mention of console gaming will have them go on rants of the superior graphic of the pc and the "pc master race"

I like Touhou, but I'll have to admit that I think that ZUN's art isn't exactly stellar as well (I like the actual character designs though).

Too many to list, but I'll pick on Bioware. For some reason all the Bioware fandom SJWs think their opinions are more important than everyone else's.

Never liked the League of Nerds community. Left 4 Dead 2 is a good game but never play VS because you'll get kicked for the no reason. I played it quite a bit but after getting kicked again and again, I turned it off and uninstalled it.

Thinking a game is good as opposed to thinking no other game in the same franchise can ever live up to it simply for NOT being that game aren't the same thing.

CoD players, most likely. They're the Naruto fanbase of videogames: obnoxious, ignorant, and deluded

Ouch, I am offended. Oh well.

From personal experience, the 2007-2008 WoW fanbase was some of the worst and the best, but it was ultimately the former that made me quit.

So how do you reason out having a favorite in a series?

Unless you're saying that whatever developer can still possibly make something that lives up to that favorite. In which case there shouldn't be much objection.

Cause Valve is awesome and most of the praise Valve gets is well-deserved. But I agree some fanatics take it way too far.

I'm kinda deep in the fandom (the story and games, not much on the community to be clear). I heard the doxxing was for like the shipping between characters afaik. But it sounds really ridiculous, so i don't even believe in the whole thing.

Just as I was typing this, I searched up "Danganronpa dox" on my search engine and found a reddit thread from a user in the fandom being doxxed, it was posted 2 months ago... yikes

CSGO matches can be quite toxic depending your region, sadly I used to be apart of the whole toxic thing, but it's been awhile since i've played that game.

Among CS 1.6 players I've been meeting some truly horrible individuals.

Its still prevalent, seen it happen myself on discords not too long ago, It is ridiculous but not for the person getting doxxed but can confirm it still happens... Last I saw was a person on a server got doxxed because of conflict of opinions and the people who did it tried to apparently "justify" it by forging evidence and making him somehow look like a pedophile, so its pretty messed up

As for the topic of toxicity in general while playing a game. MOBAS can be a nightmare, im a DOTA player and have seen extreme amounts of bullshit, usually consider myself to not be that empathic but I kinda feel for the new players just trying to have a good time but they get attacked by their teammates more than their enemies, its a game that needs a lot of time to get a hang of so it must be pretty frustrating added with the unwelcoming community. I have heard LoL has a similar condition too but haven't played it so can't really say.

In my personal experience, its pretty funny when that happens in 1.6 because of (in most cases) their broken english and lack of actual sense or arguments. I consider it as a comic relief during matches. Among the counter strikes I honestly found css to have the best community.

CSS is quite fun. but there's lack of vanilla servers close to me that doesn't give me 100+ ping, most of the vanilla servers are like 16v16 in some modified map of de_dust2. I still have fun atleast, still pwning people is quite the joy, Bhoping is kinda meh tho.

The Danganronpa fandom for sure- there's so much shit that I could list... the doxxing, the ships, etc. I'm too tired to elaborate at the moment, but those are just some things I could list off of the top of my head.

Either Danganronpa, Jojo's or Pewdiepie. Danganronpa for the things that everybody's already mentioned like doxxing (I don't really care either way about shipping) or Jojo's and Pewdiepie for just being really annoying (Eg: Is this a Jojo reference? and Pewidiepie fans never shutting up about Pewdiepie, although that's calmed down after his youtube drama with a Bollywood studio)
