I never understood why people have to obsess over media to make it the sole indicator of their identity. I can understand loving something to the extent you want to have more fun with it than the acutal show/book/game/whatever allows, but things are starting to get out of hand. Cult following doesn't mean you are supposed to actually form a cult around something.
Also just because we both like video games, comics, anime or whatever else doesn't mean we are all part of some big and happy family. I don't like my friends because they like the same shows I like, I like them because they are pleasant to be around.
All this geek/fandom /slash whatever the hell its called stuff is kind of silly and frustrating.
