Overview: Squaresoft has made some of the most popular role-playing games in the history of video gaming, as their Final Fantasy series has sold like a billion zillion jillion copies. All they need to do is keep sitting and squatting out FF games and they'll continue to be trillionaires. Yet despite all the money, market share, and publicity Squaresoft has gained, they have unfortunately also attracted fanboys who feel the need to "stick up" for this giant corporation by mashing a seemingly random series of keys and sending the resulting email to us. The bigger fanboy you are, the more out of touch with reality you become, eventually turning into the types of people you will see featured in this article. Ick. As anybody who has every played Final Fantasy X is aware of, our TruthMedia Review was completely bogus and unbelievable, which is exactly what we aimed for. You make a stupid article on the Internet and the Internet allows an even stupider person read it. Thank you very much, Internet!

Squaresoft has always had a particularly vocal group of fanboys. There are people who would probably fight to their death attempting to "protect" the name of this software company who doesn't give a crap about them or how much their product is worshipped by nutballs on the Internet. So why are these people so adamant about defending a game franchise? Don't they have anything else to do? Isn't there anything else in their lives or are they forced to attach their tiny egos to a successful game company and then absorb any insult to this company as if it was personally directed towards them? We've never understood the Internet fanboy mentality and probably never will.
NOTE FROM THE EDITOR: Like always, I have decided to include photos of what I imagine the people writing the flames look like. I feel this lends some gravity and meaning to their messages. Also I attend numerous conventions where the key speaker is a person who claims to have been abducted by UFOs and was forced to watch "Sanford & Son" aboard their spacecraft.

Yeah, you're probably right, Jon. Nobody will fall for this obviously fake review! It would be impossible to think that there are people out there using the Internet who JUST AREN'T VERY BRIGHT AT ALL. I mean come on, the review of FFX, which seems completely fake and fabricated to anybody with an IQ above 12, obviously has NO CHANCE WHATSOEVER of generating flame messages! Nobody will fall for it at all and there will never be a section of this site devoted to the flame mail sent in by rabid FFX zealots. This will obviously never happen, and if it somehow did, the flames would not be located on this page. No. That will never be. Thank you Jon Friedman, you are the best third-party consultant we have ever not hired to advise us and our website. Also, thanks for letting us "post you up," usually we get arrested for posting people up, particularly in crowded shopping centers.

Oh Jon Friedman, you wasted all that time composing your eloquent and poignant email just to be shot down by your evil mastermind counterpart, John Jarrell! Jon and John, will you ever be able to work out your differences or is this relationship doomed to become simply a statistic or even an episode of "The Jerry Springer Show"? We may never know, but in the meantime please enjoy more flame mail that we will never get according to Jon Friedman!
Next up we've got another person who feels the need to help us out by giving us more friendly advice regarding how to run our website. I'm not exactly sure what the person is trying to say, but I think it has something to do along the lines of, "hey, good work, I really enjoyed your article, keep up the excellent job!" That's what the bottom of the bottle tells me.
Something Awful is in the process of changing hands to a new owner. In the meantime we're pausing all updates and halting production on our propaganda comic partnership with Northrop Grumman.
Dear god this was an embarrassment to not only this site, but to all mankind
Yes, there are finally enough games for a new round of One Sentence Reviews
Truth Media seeks to lure out the brainless zealots mindlessly spewing words about faceless companies and products they have no relation to. Why do folks get so worked up over such inconsequential things? Truth Media is here, not to discover the answer to this, but just to make fun of them.
