The hype that fueled your anger

“Don’t Believe The Hype” by linehan42

Pokémon Pokémon Pokémon! Pokémon? Poképoképokémon! Pokémon Pokémon Pokémon!

If your feeds looked something like this the past few days, I apologize for participating in the hype around the launch of this new game about our favorite Japanese monsters (sorry Godzilla). Once the hype train gets rolling, there’s hardly anything able to stop it. If you’re not on the train, you just hope it will zoom by or crash and burn, allowing you to witness weeping fanboys. It’s the little things in life.

Sometimes, you’re not just not on the hype train. The entire craze about something just gets you so annoyed that you start hating the topic without really knowing why. It’s not that you dislike GTA V, but the way everyone treats it like a game coded by the Messiah himself just makes you wish it was never released. It’s the most primitive, honest form of hatred, fueled by the fiery passion of others.

For example, die-hard Tolkien movie fangirls just rub me the wrong way. When the latest The Hobbit – Desolation of Smaug trailer was released, my feed echoed with the sound of exploding ovaries and frame-by-frame analyses of every Lee Pace-filled second in the trailer. Really, I’m looking forward to the movie, but I wouldn’t mind if those fangirls would make an unexpected journey to Mordor so I can enjoy the flick without their drooling.

So, has there ever been a hype that just got you mad? A craze that still fills you with anger? Use the comments as your chance to vent it all, and share your traumatic experiences with the skillfull psychologists of GFN!
