No Mutants Allowed has started up a 3-part feature called "Glittering Gems of Hatred." It's a short history and examination of why we are like we are.
We've heard the same tired arguments over and
over again. "You guys will never be happy with any Fallout sequel."
"You guys are just an angry elite with no sense of reality." "You guys
just want it to be 1998 all over again."
There are some things about such statements that can be debated.
But too much of the popular opinion on Fallout fans is based on
hearsay, falsehoods and downright bullshit. We'll always enjoy our
position as some of the most hardass fans out there, but it's time to
dispell some of the worst falsehoods.
We at NMA decided to write an article about this, entitled Glittering Gems of Hatred: Eleven angry guys on a website.
It will be released in three parts over the coming week. This week's
first installment is a bit dry, and serves as the set-up for the rest.
It is a history of the Fallout fanbase with a focus on the interaction
between fans and devs.
Coming weekend the meat of the article will be released, which will
talk about Fallout fans' reputation as a bitter bunch and will take a
look at the dangers of being disloyal to a franchise.
