    I remember once the head of Nintnedo Europe said, in response to crititism that the Wii's storage space was too small, that only Geeks and Otaku would have enough game for that to be a problem. Cue the geeks , otaku and people who just liked Virtual console games going ape on him.

    Wow. What a bunch of dicks.

    As much as I dislike Blow and his games, he was spot on for #12.

    I ADORE when Kamiya blows up at people bugging him. It's like watching a genius at work. Like when everyone kept asking if Bayo would be in Smash, and he kept saying "GO ASK YOUR MOTHER."

    Christina Norman does not belong on this list by far. She and Bioware were being pushed by some incrediably bossy and virulent trolls and had gotten fed up with random people acting like they were her bosses. The worse part is that said trolls only got worse after that, resorting to death threats against her and other Bioware employees. My other point is that she is also right. While it's nice that Bioware and others will take feedback from their consumers, we are not their bosses and have no right to tell them how to do their jobs.

    I really agree with you. It's the same kind of focus test mentality that dumbs down most of the media we consume. If you don't like the way something ends, too bad, cause that's the way it ends. Sometimes things don't have the exact ending you want, or any ending for that matter. With gaming more than any other medium, it's about the journey not the destination. That isn't to say the destination can't blow you away, but not everything is going to end with a bang.
  • FemJesse - May 14, 2014 3:14 p.m.

    and the real genius of the ending is that it speaks to the futility of predestination via cyclical time cycles. I'm not really sure what people were expecting.

    Is there any point in repeating these things? It's just going to stir up more rage... whoops, it already did. Can't even say I told you so, because I just got here.

    I hope a girl kicks that call of duty kid's balls into another dimension. Also, to the fez guy and the braid guy: your games aren't fucking gems, get over yourselves. I'd sooner play AC3 again and sit through every cutscene twice than play FEZ. And I'd rather read a 5 page document written by the supreme court than play 10 minutes of braid. I wouldn't pay more than 99 cents each for those on a steam sale and even then the driving force is just that indescribable lure of steam sales, because when something's 99 cents you buy it even if you know you'll never play it. On the plus side I do like Kaz Hirai's jabs, they're just subtle enough to chuckle at and not so asshole-ish as "I should be charging you 90$ you fucking ingrates".

    I just had a hearty lol about your prediction of the CoD nerd's fate
  • BladedFalcon - May 13, 2014 10:12 p.m.

    Oh hey GR, you forgot this rather lovely golden Nugget: "I am frankly surprised at the tepid reaction... I truly thought that the fanboys would snap these up at any price.” That's Iwata basically thinking of Nintendo fans as mindless idiots that would buy anything they put out, including the 3DS back when it sucked, because it had no games.
  • Vonter - May 14, 2014 11:21 a.m.

    Every company has had a moment of arrogance, like the mentioned Xbox quote. At least Nintendo didn't ask 599 US dollars for any machine ever, because the market isn't ready. I think the worse may be the Reggie quote, since that one was legitimately stupid to make.

    "My Console is better than yours!" -Fanboy Twats
  • TurkeyOnRye - May 13, 2014 7:28 p.m.

    All of those are kind of funny except the Phil Fish and the two "pro" gamers (not even worth learning their names.) Those 3 idiots deserve everything they get. Man, remember when video games were all about fun?
  • cyco687 - May 13, 2014 11:35 p.m.

    To be fair Phil went through a shitload of stress with that game, doesn't mean he was right to be a dick, but it wasn't totally unexpected. People were up his ass non-stop.
  • cJinL - May 18, 2014 12:37 p.m.

    And then you realize that pretty much EVERY indie developer had to suffer through ridiculous amounts of stress on their own. Seriously, Fish acted the way he did because hes a sensitive, angry twat and he has no idea how to handle himself. Its just his personality.
  • Vonter - May 13, 2014 7:23 p.m.

    [People who play RPGs are] “depressed gamers who like to sit alone in their dark rooms and play slow games.” - Hiroshi Yamauchi "More polygons = more emotion" - David Cage I didn't know how to look for EA quotes, but those most be a gold mine. Sadly its mostly a faceless corporation.
  • Evanesco - May 13, 2014 9:54 p.m.

    I hate David Cage, but his statement still makes sense. It doesn't when you twist it to suit a "graphics aren't everything" agenda though. All he was saying is you can make a face look more like a face in it's different emotive states when it has more polygons and more detail.
  • Vonter - May 14, 2014 10:01 a.m.

    Yeah I suppose the more I think about it that's right, even Mario Kart 8 has some added clarity to character expressions. Still the context in which he said that was that poly count got right to convey complex emotions. Which felt like a slap to the face to every game who didn't choose or be able to deliver a high poly count. He could have said in a more tactful way, since like you said, it's partly true.
