A fanboy who plays only console video games. The only PC games they'll touch are free (and often terrible) ones, such as Gunbound, Runescape, or Kings of Chaos/Outwar.
The console fanboy is bitter towards anyone who prefers PC gaming, as their chugging, ten year old 486 running Windows 95 with a dialup connection is so completely obsolete that they can barely load their internet browser, let alone play a game.
Tries to back up their crippling lack of technology by denouncing the keyboard/mouse setup as "too hard to use" or lamenting that online PC gaming lacks some kind of close social aspect that only being in the same room can apparently provide (never mind the presence of voice chat or the LAN party).
The console fanboy can often be made to see the error of their ways as long as a slight amount of force is used.
"My computer can't run Doom 3 but I don't really care because I never liked PC games. But anyways, wait 'til you hear what I did on Gunbound yesterday!"
"I'm telling you, wireless mice simply don't stack up against a camera stick."
"No, you... You just don't understand the kind of feeling you get when you and your friends all have to sit in the same room in order to play Smash Bros. It's not the same experience, I swear!"
