What fandom do you think makes the best content?

 Pages 1 2 NEXT
 

So, let's try this again. Try not to argue that much this time, Escapist. I'm going to mention the bad sides of Bronies in my OP, if you don't like them then deal with it and don't reply to me. Seriously guys, I'm making a thread about positive opinions, I reckon if this thread was called "Worst" fandom you would all behave more civily. You guys dissapoint me sometimes...

OT: So, what fandom do you think makes the best fanart/fanfic/fan music/mods/fan games and others. There's a lot to choose from and a LOT of people with time on their hands to use making things based on their favorite game, book, film or TV show.

Personally, I think bronies make the best stuff, mainly because of the sheer amount of amazing stuff we can make in such a short time. The season 2 finale aired with a new villian, next day about 70 pieces of art that were all beautiful of the new villian AND about 10 remixes of the new songs. Sure, we have some bad areas (Cloppers, Gorefics/art and Clopfics), but I think the amount of sheer amazing stuff we make more than makes up for it.

So Escapist, opinions on this question?

Oh, definitely MLP fans. Except that rule 34 stuff. *shudders*

Hmmm, well MLP fans undoubtedly have some talent drawing-wise...
But then Halo has/had some brilliant machinima content...

I'ma go with Halo. Because I've also heard some pretty good related songs, played some awesome community maps, and watched a lot of great videos.
Assuming that counts as a valid choice...

Why wouldn't it count? Halo has a fandom, and they make content such as machinimas so yeah, it counts. Not arguing with you, but bronies do make a LOT of songs relating to MLP, most of them are amazing. But you've got your choice and you can stick with it :D

Star Wars and Metal Gear Solid, some of the cosplay and fan stuff is really cool.

Sweet, sticking with that choice then.
I have actually listened to quite a bit of the music from MLP, and there's undoubtedly a lot of talent around.

For the unconvinced/uninitiated to Halo - watch the following video from 6:20 in (the first six minutes wouldn't make sense without watching the whole 40 min+ episode)

TF2 users make the best stuff. MLPs fanbase is just annoying now.

Warhammer 40k!

The stories and fan-fluff from the Warhammer 40k universe are amazing. I esspecially like the way they integrate stuff from the models into their ramblings
(Like always depicting all the fanart of Abaddon - a high ranking, pure evil general of Chaos, with no arms, because they usually broke off his flimsy game model)

Because of this it's now pretty much accepted Fannon that Abaddon has no arms, and all his feats in the official fluff that require the use of arms just goes to show how badass he is.

There's a character called Kharn the Betrayer; another Chaos general supposed to be pure evil, who has so much bloodlust that occaionally he will attack his own troops just for the mayhem. This led the collective fanbase to decide he was just in it "for the lulz" and that he was an awesome guy: http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Kh%C3%A2rn

I love that they just seem to have so much fun with the setting of 40K, especially since it is kind of designed so you create your own army with your own designs and colours, inevitably leading to people doing this:

Someone somewhere spent about $200 buying all those pieces, and then they decided "I know! I'll paint it purple and cover it in hearts!"
Amazing.

hmmm for a time i would of said halo or css but given the steam workshops support of tf2 it is now tf2.

These choices are simply due to them actually providing something that alters the ingame experience.

You just had to put a hateful comment about bronies in there didn't you? Seriously, this is why the last time I tried to make this thread got locked, because people just couldn't talk about the actual subject and had to make hateful and flaming comments about bronies.

Fans of disabled girls and 4chan... Because well, Kawata Shojo didn't come from nowhere.

It's just the fact that you felt the need to put it there, when you didn't even need to do it. You could of just said "I don't think bronies make that much good stuff" and we would of all been fine, but you HAD to post something that just comes off as you trying to start a flame war.

They make some but its ultimately outweighed by their ability to bring rage to any community on the internet. Just by observation. And by spoilering it i was acting to avoid said problem, which was kind of ruined by you pointing it out :P

TF2 and GMOD have spawned many a good video. But as much as I love these videos, a lot of them reflect the young age of a lot of the fans, and now that TF2 is f2p its kind of worse. Nothing beats Nope.avi and Erectin' a River though.

Personally I would have to say TES. I mean, the modding community is massive for that game, and has even spread into Fallout 3 and NV. Never have I seen a game with so much fan made content that the developers ENCOURAGE. Its like we're in some weird backwards land where people don't overprice dlc and lock content and put on drm or something......

I mean, TF2 has the workshop, but a lot of stuff is just 3d rendered models that aren't in game, and if they are, the entire server would have to download them, so you never see them. Yea its cool, but Elder Scrolls mods you can actually USE all of them.

Halo is pretty amazing as well, I know it gets a lot of crap for being A KIDDY GAME FER DA XBOX LULZ like Call of Duty, but its still an awesome game worthy of the praise. And really? Playing xbox for like, 2 years, I've only had maybe 2 kids at the most use their mics, and half of the time they aren't even that annoying. This is across all the xbox games I own, even CoD, Halo, and GoW. I think people like to over exaggerate to seem cool on the internet.

Woo! also fans of Katawa Shoujo do some really good stuff too. I think the best would have to be Halo just because of red vs blue.




Eh, I'd show more but I'm not sure how to spoiler stuff and I don't want flood the thread with a billion videos.
EDIT: Also, I'm not sure if .MOV fits into the 'weird' bronies, but it's well drawn/animated and pretty funny if you get that kind of sick humor.

You know, I think I just might start spoilering incredibly rude comments and see if that keeps me from facing consequences. I'll start with you.

OT- I really enjoy 40k fluff and jokes about it, so I will go with that.

DBZ fans definitely. Nothing screams talent like low res videos of Goku going Super Saiyan set to Crawling by Linkin Park -_-

Although saying that we have TeamFourStar who are a genuinely talented bunch of peeps.

Just Valve fans in general, whether it be for Team Fortress, Half-Life, Portal, or Counter-Strike. Between all the great machinima, fan films, mods, songs, and whatever else, it seems like half the enjoyment I get out of their games comes from what the fans make with them.

Probably the MLP fandom, and I'm not even a bronie. A lot of the art is superb, and with fics like Fallout: Equestria around, it's hard to give it to anyone else.

Fans of Liverpool FC!!!
We are unrivaled so far when it comes to being fans of something!

The MLP fandom. They make so much stuff it scares me.

As a, brony, I required by Pony-law to tell you that MLP is the best fandom ever. But then I remembered Arby n' the Chief.

So I'm really tied between MLP and Fallout: Equestria, or Halo and Arby n' the Chief. A literary experience that I will never forget, or one of the funniest machinimas I've ever watched. It's too close to call.

My Own Fandom obviously. Anything someone makes for me is going to be a hundred times better than shlock they make for you guys.

And sorry, I cannot say that Bronies make the best stuff when there are people who feel that pictures like the child at the Warsaw Ghetto or the raising of the flag at Iwo Jima are made better by the inclusion of fucking ponies.

MLP, hands down, in my opinion, or at least from my observation. There is some great stuff to be had there in every artistic sense.

Though, the community set up around Katawa Shoujo has created massive amounts of great content too, like, well, Katawa Shoujo itself.

The Elder Scrolls ?? All those mods don't just appear out of nowhere, you know. Also look Nehrim up.

Outside of that can't really think of anything, all would be either too obscure or too big and vocal minority and Sturgeon's Law (90% of everything is crud) kick in. At that point you can't really argue that one fandom is better then other because of few talented people (like the already mentioned Team Four Star) while everything else is shit.

Ignoring the MLP nature of this thread, I'm going to say the LOTR fans.

Goddamn awesome!

+1 for Katawa Shoujo, the only "game" in recent memory where I felt in emotionally invested in the characters (before that was metal gear solid 4 though). Although saying that I havnt seen alot of fan stuff surrounding the game like other people have said, I'm looking in the wrong places I guess.

OT: Although the term Brony has negative connotations now, they still make the best stuff. The worst fandom is Sonic though *shudders*

Ok yeah I take it back, there is ALOT of Katawa Shoujo stuff out there!

Touhou. I have a hard time imagining that any other fandom can beat it. It's funny, 'cause I feel that a lot less people know about it than MLP. Sure, a LOT of it is porn(but I do not complain :D) and guys cosplaying as girls in frilly clothing(OH GOD PLEASE NO) but there's still more fanart/music/figurines/doujins(fanfics) than you can possibly imagine. It apparently has a few conventions, but the biggest is the Hakurei Shrine Reitaisai. The latest as far as I know had just about 5000 circles(groups) participating.

I especially like all the music arranges. I pretty much only listen to Touhou arranges. No, I don't dismiss other music, it's just that at the end of the day you just don't have time to listen to everything. And this shit never ends. There's a torrent with just Touhou arranges that's 1.1 TB. Those are compressed files as well. If you're wondering, I wanted to know if the biggest Touhou torrent available would be porn or music. I would not be surprised either way >_>

As always, there's some bad songs out there, as well as good ones:

Whenever I remember that stuff like this spawned from a SHMUP, my mind gets blown.

Bronies? Punish? Love and tolerate, brony~

OT: Incidentally, I'm putting in my vote for the FiM fandom, did you work that out? (:

As I am obligated by pony law, I must put the obvious MLP fandom, but I know that valve fans create some really good stuff.

Hmm, usually don't think about it, but LOTR fans do make some really awesome stuff. Shame on me, considering how much of a tolkien nerd I am.
