* It's not a good idea to bring up the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamergate_controversy Gamer Gate controversy]] in any board that is NOT the KotakuInAction reddit board as it could bring an eternal flame war between those in support and against the controversy, you have been warned.

* Related to the above Nintendo example ''ANYTHING'' Nintendo related as a company, starting with the {{Wii}} up to the WiiU. The flame wars are just super toxic, filled with nothing but {{Hatedom}}, {{Fandom}}, HateDumb, FanDumb, and BrokenBase over whether or not the Wii U is next gen or not, the lack of new IP's and what qualify as a new IP (Nintendo has made new IP's, but whether or not they're aesthetically appealing is a different can of worms), the lack of third party support as far back as N64 and whose to blame for this Nintendo or game developers for being lazy, the kiddie/family stigma, should Iwata be fired or is he being scapegoated? wash rinse and repeat with Reggie, and Myamoto, the lack of a robust online infrastructure vs that's not what Nintendo is about, etc etc etc.. Doesn't help that people accuse the gaming media as part of the problem. Flame wars are common in the gaming community yes, however Nintendo is completely different monster all together with a gazillion different shades of conflicts and issues by extension. For example casual gaming vs "core" gaming and the definition of those terms, motion controls vs standard controls, photo realistic graphics vs that's not what Nintendo is about. In fact arguably most major debates revolving around console gaming have Nintendo as the root of the argument...or it [[FlameBait eventually leads to Nintendo]]. Sony, and Microsoft wars are nowhere near as bad as the Nintendo debates.

** To give you a perspective of how flame worthy the Wii U console is, see its Headscratchers page, which might as well be called "Please lent out you frustrations with X here". You'll notice how much complaining there is compared to the PS4, (XboxOne's Headscratchers also have a lot of hate, but most, if not all, "features" have been reversed.

* A war within the Creator/{{Nintendo}} fandom has brewed since 2010 due to the influence of Creator/SeanMalstrom. On one side stand the "Orthodox" Nintendo fans, who just enjoy the games for what they are and tend to like whatever Nintendo gives them, on the other are the Malstromites, who tend to like only the Nintendo games that adhere to the Blue Ocean strategy. Things get heated in that the Malstromites tend to view those Nintendo games that do not adhere to the strategy as being actively destructive for Nintendo, and thus begin to flame games like SuperMarioGalaxy2, VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks, or MetroidOtherM, or even call for the firing of Satoru Iwata, Yoshio Sakamoto, and Shigeru Miyamoto, much to the dismay of Orthodox fans.

** Do ''not'' get started about the marriage and inheritance system in Awakening, either. People simply ''asking'' about how the system works and how they should use it will get lost in a shipping and Galeforce-crazed war zone.

* Even if you are asking out of curiosity, never ask ''VideoGame/PAYDAY2'' fans if they feel microtransactions in the form of weapon skins with stat boosts doesn't harm the game or if the abundance of DLC is optional. At best, you'll get laughed at and not taken seriously. At worst, you'll be declared the very reason why gaming has gone down the tubes.

** The gender of [[TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora]] has also caused various flamewars similar to Sheik, but it's even worse as there hasn't been any WordOfGod on it.
