Look at how many people abandoned FF when 7 came out

Errrr what? Which version of history are you living in?

VII, X and XIII mark cycles in the life of the series with generations of new and old fans coming and going for a multitude of reasons. Is nothing new really, and XV is gonna continue that "tradition".

well Madden's case it less about Iron clad loyalty, but more of a we own the NFL license issue. Your choices for an NFL game are Madden, Madden  or....Madden. When Sega put out a vastly superior NFL game that was 10 dollars cheaper  and EA were called out about it repeatedly. Instead of getting better and improving EA just bought the NFL license and ended all competition right there cause monopolies are fun!I Have not touched a Football game since.

The only brand I'm really loyal too is Sony. I've never had any problems with any consoles, portables, walkman, discman, or TVs. Yeah I know all electronics are made in one huge factory in China but Sony has done right by me.

Gaming aside, I tend to have more brand loyalty in terms of clothing and sports equipment.

For example, I find that Nautica clothing fits me better than other clothing brands.  Calvin Klein and Express larges are too small, Polo's large is workable, but Nautica's large is just right.  

For cycling gear, I've tried shorts, jerseys, gloves, and tights from several brands and Pearl Izumi kit fits my body the best.

I am loyal to Samsung for TVs. I have never had an issue with my Samsungs.

Gamewise-I have a bit of brand loyalty to the Disgaea series. Even when it hasn't been all that good or innovative I have bought them.

All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you.

Except for a few instances, I am not brand loyal. Some brands do well in some areas, and poorly in others. So on and so forth. For that reason, I don't think anyone should ever be completely blind to alternatives, as there is no perfect brand (nor will there ever be).

Now, as a head shaver, I'll admit I'm loyal to Dorco razors. Inexpensive and of good quality. It's unbelievable what the bigger names charge for blades/cartridges.

Also, I wouldn't exactly say I'm "loyal" to them, but I do prefer Sony and Samsung electronics. Both have served me well. Actually, I guess it could be said I'm loyal to Samsung when it comes to mobile devices. Both my wife's and my own phone, as well as my tablet and music player, are all Samsung. All are excellent.

AweSoMe THREAD REVIVAL BABEEEE, YEA yea YEA!!!... *Ahem*

Brand loyalty. I've got a BUNCH!

Electronics/ Sony everything and Hisense televisions. No one knows about hisense because they are low budget TVs but I swear, once calibrated, I appreciate it more than my Toshiba or Samsung.

Coffee/ A family owned supermarket in the US northeast called "wegmans" has some of the best coffee ever (self admitted coffee snob approved varieties available)

Tattoo Machines/ More of machine builder loyalty than brand per se, Gaston and Soba have made machines that took all the effort out of my "work". Seriously, I will likely tattoo with machines made by these folk until I die.

Cigarettes/ Salem and Camel. The end.

SkinnyGirl/ They make this stuff called "Monks Fruit". I can't have/am extremely sensitive and/or allergic to EVERY other form of sugar or sweetener there is including fructose. I spend most of my dietary allowance on this crap to sweeten my wegmans coffee.

Pencils/ Prismacolor. They are the only company that make a suitably soft enough pencil for me to re-create painterly quality saturation on vellum.

Jeans/ For years, being as small as I am I had to buy kids jeans or womens. Then I discovered express skinny jeans. Adult denim pants that aren't emo-teen skin tight. I own multiple pair and they are the only pants I have worn since I was 23-24.

Cups/ Sheetz "hot cups" keep my wegmans coffee warm like a thermus and hold up to microwave cooking. Amazing space age quality styrofoam.
