    Everyone hating on Activisions CEO literally has no business experience and no idea how to run one of the largest electronic entertainment companies in the world. Gaming is a business. Gaming is used to make money. You seriously need to get used to it if you want to stay in this hobby, because it aint goin anywhere and EVERY company is for profit. Yes, even your precious little minecraft creator and Valve. For profit. Period. Just play the fuckin games, stop crying, and enjoy it. Or find something else to occupy your time with. Because the constant bitching about nothing new or original or companies milking franchises is getting REALLY old.

    You could make an entire article out of the bullshi*t that Kotick comes out with. Remember when he said that the Tony Hawk: Ride peripheral was the best thing since sliced bread? Or when he said he said he hated games? The guy is a cancer on the industry. Surprised Molyneux didn't make an appearance though for his claim that you could plant an acorn in Fable and grow an Oak tree.

    I always feel a sorry for Kotick. the stuff he says is generally taken out of context and then through the complex system of chinese whispers that is the internet mutated into something akin to i want to anally rape every gamers grandmother while pouring sugar in their gas tank. The mans not afraid to speak his mind, I can respect that.

    'Not afraid to speak one's mind' and 'not thinking before you speak' are two different things. While journalists can make an entire living off of the phrase 'out of context' (no offense, GR), There are a lot of people who just say dumb things.

    How about Peter Molyneux? No particular statement in mind. Just... him.

    Everybody has brainfats, no biggie. But Activision. I openly boycot them and here is why. I bought Singularity from a bargain bin. I enjoyed the game but later found out that Acti-fuckers had zero support for it, because they just wanted to get rid of the dev studio. Secondly, Modern warfare 3. The single player mode lasts for 4 to 6 hours. WTF!!! I still don't buy a single game for it's on-line properties alone. Fuck Activision and Bruce kott-fuck.

    >no one mentioning the times Sega stuck its foot in its mouth with the Saturn/32x/Sega CD >no one mentions the "just a little bit more powerful" discussion regarding the Atari Jaguar I am disappoint.

    Bobby Kotick is evil and his eyes are upside down. Promise me you will never show his picture again or I'll.... I will try to delete the internet and I might just manage it, you never know, and then you will be sorry. I saw a squirrel yesterday.

    I'm with Gabe on Windows 8. It's kind of like the ME-Vista era all over again. No reason to update from Windows 7, Just like there was no reason to upgrade from XP until Win7 came out. Love Bobby Koticks quote. Demonizing EA, and then now most people consider Activision worse than EA.

    In Nintendo's defence, they are one of the few companies that still make great games regardless of online capability.
  • RonnyLive19881 - August 5, 2012 10:38 a.m.

    Yep, I still don't want online in my Nintendo games. It would be pointless, I have friends to play multiplayer with...
  • playoldgames - August 4, 2012 1:05 a.m.

    Two omissions that I can see: 1: Mention of this in the Jack Tretton bit - 2: Peter Molyneux. Just stick a pin in a book of his quotes, and you'll find something for this article.

    Gabe Newell, pretty smart guy but he really looked like a moron. "PS3 sucks!" "Sorry, about that."
  • drevil321 - August 3, 2012 9:48 p.m.

    probably because of the "3".

    To be fair, It took a very long time form PS3 to gain traction, and for me, as a gamer, has only ever seemed worth picking up in the last years or so. Controller is still garbage though, in my opinion. The style became too small for my hands about when I turned 15.
  • masterjoe123 - August 3, 2012 6:42 p.m.

    Well he called the PS3 a waste of time because he was confused by the symbol after the PS.

    Bwahaha! If I could 'like' your comment, I would!
  • ParagonT - August 3, 2012 6:07 p.m.

    Good article. Way more interesting than most.
  • ObliqueZombie - August 3, 2012 5:38 p.m.

    Good article, AJ. Ahhh, yes. How juvenile the business of gaming is.
