How about a list of awful fanbases instead.
Glad I'm not the only one that felt that way, the MGS fanbase incrementally got worst during the MGS4 years and after a while they took the Kojima/MGS worship way too seriously as the years went on. The line between a person that casually likes the MGS games vs Kojima/MGS worship is very difficult to tell apart now.
There's a youtube channel called Hackfraudmedia that does better Mr. Plinkett style videos than the real thing, most of the videos have a terrible like to dislike ratio bar because of the RLM fanbase.Not the worst, but the Red Letter Media fanbase is pretty bad. The subreddit and Youtube comments are like 90% just people posting phrases from their content and circlejerking each other, it's impossible to have a discussion.
Especially the idiots who watch Big Bang Theory and think they're nerds because they laugh at a shitty show with a laughtrack.The whole "geek culture" thing in general.
I'd say if MLP isn't the first it's a very close second. The first would have to be Rick & Morty fans. I like the show, I think it's funny mostly because of how fucked up Rick is as a person and his dialog is pretty hilarious. "You fucked with squirrels, Morty!!" was just hilarious to me because the implication that he wasn't surprised at the squirrels running the planet but Morty fucking with them.MLP, no doubt. Don't get me wrong, there's some okay fans of the show (like, they watch but don't get into the full fandom), but the ones who are obsessed over it are the worst.
I used to be into it a little, but MLPForums just about ruined it for me. Fukken glad it did.
I don't get the stick-shift thing either. I drive a stick and I prefer it to automatics just becauase I've been driving stick for so long. The way they treat people who drive automatics is cringy. Also while stick-shifts used to be more fuel efficient, new vehicles with the much improved auto-trans can get better gas mileage. The cars can shift better than any human can. Just technology has caught up. I do think it's a valuable skill to have but it's not life and death the way they go on about it.A fair number of video game fanbases are like this, ever wonder why Nintendo stuffs always grossly overpriced?
For me, its a toss up between the 90's animation community (Their dream is to transform TV into endless reruns, blue FBI warning screens) and anime, the community that helped to ruin a medium that was once cool.
The "internet car community" is a pretty bizarre fanbase, they honestly believe that stick-shifts save lives. And despite being "car buffs" they actually hate many different car models.
Holy shit I forgot about this. Is it bad they had to tone it down compared to the actual crazies?Loved how the creators mocked the fans in the show. I wounder if they got the joke.
Undertale ruined Earthbound, as it caused a nuclear explosion on the scale of Chernobyl in the Earthbound fandom, seriously if i had a dollar for every autistic earthbound undertale crossover or comparison ever made, I'd have enough to buy this site myself.Undertale, especially if it's spelled Undertail
Sonic (I know, already said but worth mentioning again)How about a list of awful fanbases instead.
