    i hate all gamers/ most games journalists . just whiny, self entitled spoiled brats that still buy whatever they complain about. oh no you spent $20 on "only 10 hours" of gameplay, oh what a ripoff!!!!.

    to be fair, phil fish has issues and probably shouldn't have responded in that fashion, but the "annoyedGamer" guy was being really awful here.

    you guys should still play fez tho

    Christ on a crutch....

    Anyway, speaking as someone who plays video games a lot more casually than he did about 3 or 4 years ago, yes, I do see a lot of gamers as neurotic asshats, but then again, I stop and think that the majority of the gamers spouting abuse like the stuff seen in those Twitter comments are between like... 12 to 16 years old. I know there's a hoard of sad manchildren out there, who it's most likely too late for, but I can at least hope that the younger gamers spouting comments like that wise the fuck up before they are given genuine problems and responsibilities to deal with.

    Phil Fish is quite the character though. Why does he get mad at people who (admittedly over-the-top) criticize his games, when he does stuff like this?

    And here's an angry tirade of tweets I got from the first link.

    I'm unfamiliar with Phil Fish, but he seems like quite an easily butthurt guy.

    Also, he just looks like kind of a tool...I know that's shallow of me to say since I'm simply talking about his appearance but hey, judging by those tweets the shoe does indeed fit

    Phil Fish gets an unbelievable amount of abuse from a gaming population who are sick of devs hiding behind their pr but aren't happy when somebody isn't hidden behind their pr.
    I'm not surprised he walked away. He needs to take a step back and act less emotionally. BUT nobody has the right to send him an avalanche of abuse because he didn't do an interview/flippantly dismissed japanese games/whatever.

    oh and games journos (if you can call fucking annoyed gamer that) and ANYBODY have a right to criticise game devs but i'm talking about the personal attacks aimed at him
    calling him a "fucking asshole" for not doing an interview? lame.

    It's always so weird to watch "Indie Game the Movie" and know how much of a whiney asshole Phill Fish really is.

    And yeah most of those whiney "Gamers" are like in there early teens. I love video games but I fucking hate fanboys and those people who always complain about shit like that.

    That is why little kids shouldn't be allowed to play Call of Duty.

    It's a shame that fanboys have such a loud voice in the public's eye but that's what happens when little kids play 'hardcore' games: they become angry and passive-aggressive as they grow older.

    I met a 5 year old on Xbox Live once. He was actually rather nice, but he didn't belong there.

    Funny how all the kids playing games like COD and dishing out this abuse seem to have parents who see no harm in it yet when GTA V comes out they'll collectively shit their pants about what their little darlings are being exposed too.

    Most "gamers" ive known, regardless of age, are rather insufferable. Its a culture of enabling. I mean look at me.

    There's a weird dichotomy between gamers and reviewers in that it seems like reviewers seem to stoop to their audience's levels and become really whiny and demanding to developers and stuff. It's strange too, because in other mediums, I can't really think of professional reviewers doing the same thing. I'd like to think this is more of a problem with amateur reviewers and the fact that any loud voice can get a microphone on the internet... But even respectable sites seem to be full of these "WHERE IS MY _____ GAME, DEVELOPER" editorials.

    Wow, he must be really, really whiny since I remember him coming off as being somewhat whiny and neurotic during that documentary too... I'm thinking of his freak-out over his ex-partner right before PAX. Has he done a lot of other general whiny stuff afterwards on the internet?

    I can get a little ranty about this kind of stuff. I don't suppose anyone here followed the "dorito-gate" controversy? http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=497024
    Think it is demonstrative of the lack of professionalism in video game journalism.

    I don't want to take the "big bad media"'s side on this but, when I think about the gaming community, I lean toward what Bart said in S8 to Comic Book Guy, about fans and their sense of self-entitlement. Developers don't owe gamers anything; gamers can and should be satisfied with what they get at face value. Fans can be a very fickle bunch, myself included, and this case with Mr. Fish is a strange case of a direct backlash against the fanbase.

    I've heard Fez is good (and, based on the games I like to play, Fez would have been right up my alley; alas, I don't have a 360, and I'm not much of a PC gamer). It's difficult to separate the media from the stronger personalities behind it anyway, so that doesn't help much either. Game developers have come closer and closer to bending to fan feedback; in the case of game-breaking glitches which the fans find, or when it comes to injustice, prejudice or imbalance in the gaming community, fine. That can help things. I think some developers take the fans' consideration too much which, I think, gets in the way of the developers' original vision.

    Hell, remember when Hideo Kojima was getting death threats because he said he didn't want to be at the helm of Metal Gear Solid 4 and then he caved?

    MGS4 is a brilliant game, but still...fucking wackos.

    sometimes gamers get over-obsessed, I know some people who I had to stop being friends with because they value minecraft over their social life. Having an addiction to gaming that bad is a problem, I think that some gamers need professional help
