SSV: First Meeting with a Nintendrone

Something, Something, Videogame: First Meeting with a Nintendrone

What do you know, those mountains of people you see in the internet, some of which existence is an unfathomable parody, do in fact exist. Where I live, I have met the dude-bro crowd, who in Saudi Arabia are somewhat different than in the states. Main difference being they actually understand what the-terrorists in COD say when they throw a bomb or something.

It is understandable that the dude-bro crowd is ubiquitous outside of the internet, as the laws of inverse relations would suggest that the fewer dude-bros you see online, the more of them you see offline.

However, I never had the misfortune of meeting real-life fanboys. The emphasis on the "boys" here, as fans (despite some asshats fuming at the thought of fans of videogame companies) are rather a jolly lot. No, fans we all are, even us who are fans of misery, but the other set fans. The darke ridiculous set, that fumes at Sarkesian, waxes poetical over the death of so and so company, that is rare to see in the real world.

Until the other day when I met a Nintendrone for the first time in my life. Perhaps I wouldn't have known he was a Nintendrone if I wasn't there buying Tropical Freeze. Perhaps I would have went out of the store into my merry oblivious way if he did realize I was, in some ways, a Nintendo fan. My theory is, the Xbots, the drones, and the Sony equivalent, do not show themselves to those who are not fans of their respective fandom. The inter-webs is for combat, but the real life is for recruitment and cerebral circle jerking.

This is not a specific blog about the infamous drones, but a blog about a specific type of fan that for some reason or another abandoned all reason and became a fanboy.

About Lord Spencerone of us since 5:57 PM on 01.12.2014

Hello all, I am Lord Spencer, your friendly neighborhood royalty. Yes, the ancient bloodlines are letting absolutely anyone in these days.

Being the lurker that I am, I have been following Destructoid for more than four years. Well, its 3 AM where I live now, and I just plunged in getting HUGE in the way.

Here is hoping for a fun time.

Oh yes, here is a little more info about me that is probably not as interesting as I think it is:

-I owned and played about 1000+ games.
-I owned and read about 2000+ books (I counted comic books I read as a kid so this is not as impressive as it sounds).
-I absolutely love Legos.

Out of all the games I played, I only regret playing a few. I am a big fan of gaming, and thus I really like most of what I play.

Thanks to the excellent work of community member Dango, now I have a cool infographic of my top 20 games. This list is not my final one, but what I thought off at the moment. If you notice, they are presented in chronological order:

Oh, and here is a link to my blogs:
