I have to admit, I laughed

SilentNegotiator1492d ago

That's because it's funny. That old robot has become a representational parody of the gaming industry and its incestual relationship between publishers, reporters, and now more than ever, third party advertisers.

AWWWW YEAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! this is perfect

knowyourstuff1491d ago

LOL this was more or less accurate anyway, no harm done. What, like they're telling anyone anything they didn't know? Of course he's an xbox and halo fanboy, I saw all his interviews where he couldn't believe another game could be better than Halo 3 or Gears of War 1. He was shocked when someone said MGS4 blew those titles out of the water (which it did, as well as every other Halo and Gears game for that matter).

"In all seriousness, we find it sad to see a hard-working journalist be subjected to this, and we hope all this hooplah clears up soon."

"Hard working..."

"Journalist......... "

Right...

I did too, I really hate the American entertainment game reviewers etc. Its a side to the gaming industry I wish didn't exist, It certainly doesn't need to anyway.

CAPSLOCKFURY1491d ago (Edited 1491d ago )

Yeah, like it's only American ones. I seem to recall something recent with a London reviewer getting free PS3s, having a webpage plastered with Lara Croft, and crying libel when it got pointed out. It wasn't much of a story, maybe you missed it. /s

AHAHAHHAHAhAhAHAHAHAH CALL THE BUTTHURT POLICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It not the American's fault that little big planet karting is garbage.

Whoever did this was clearly butthurt that he liked halo so he cried a little and them went back to playing little soulless mario kart rip off.

admiralvic1491d ago

Let's ignore that Eurogamer is one of the most complained about outlets on this site and blame the US alone.

@ calvin:

Your first name wouldn't happen to be Geoff, would it?

I'm wondering why this is news - but more important news is why anyone is searching for Geoff Keighley on Wikipedia....probably the author of this article who did the edits.

This is funny! It's still up LOL

GribbleGrunger1492d ago (Edited 1492d ago )

'Geoff Keighley's Wikipedia page has been vandalised' ... and Geoff Keighley get's a wage increase. Jesus, people are stupid.

Breadcrab1492d ago

I'm confused; How does he get a wage increase from getting his page vandalized? Is there some kind of Wikipedia insurance out there?

vortis1492d ago

More Doritos advertisement = $$$

Breadcrab1492d ago (Edited 1492d ago )

Yeah, but what does that have to do with Wikipedia? Unless he was just referring to Keighley's potential "wage increase" by itself, which I'm pretty sure everyone has already assumed at this point.

LiquidSword931492d ago

Vandalized? Lol wtf is this article doing here anyway??

Breadcrab1492d ago

It's here to inform people that a well-known gaming journalist has had his Wikipedia page vandalized and that some people will stop at nothing to berate him.

LiquidSword931492d ago

Thanks for the info, but is this rly the best that N4g can do right now?....Whats going on here on this site?

PockyKing1492d ago

At least people actually find this funny. I'd rather have something give me a chuckle than read another top list..

kingdavid1492d ago

I found it rather insightful and hopefully it can educate people on the hazards of wikipedia vandalism. I hope you're doing okay Geoff.

Newsman1491d ago

Tissues for your issues. Man up.

mynameisEvil1491d ago

He wasn't in a friggin' car accident. His Wikipedia page was just vandalized... Chill bro, he's fine.

ALLWRONG1491d ago

Halo haters, probably from this site. Funny but sooooo obvious.

lawks_land1492d ago

I actually agree that this is gaming news. It shows the tenor of the discussion and people's reaction to the situation. Readers are upset with the perception of corruption, and they're lashing out.

And, it's a little funny.
