Michael Pachter vs NeoGAF - Let The Battle Begin

DSOGaming writes: "Let’s be honest here; we love NeoGAF. It’s not only that a lot of our stories (and stories you witness in other websites that are not giving away their supposedly trusty source) are coming from this incredible forum, but it’s also the fact that you can find amazing and truly ground-breaking opinions/discussions about various things (related to games). And if you are a regular in NeoGAF, you’ll pretty much know that Pachter is not welcomed in there. In a surprising turn of events, though, Pachter decided to challenge NeoGAF and ‘prove’ how GAFfers are (mostly) smart and are (mostly) assholes." (Michael Pachter, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

"NeoGAF members were quick to react, claiming that GTTV would avoid inviting NeoGAF’ers to defend themselves and provide arguments to them. Some even claimed that Geoff Keighley is also behind this show (as head of GTTV), as the dorito-thing came from this particular forum (and exploded to all other medias)."

Oh you can so tell GTTV are doing this to dumb down NeoGAF so all the bad things they've said relating to them won't seem as bad. Pacher, the Dorito thing....it's like GTTVs revenge plan or something, they think by doing this it will counter everything NeoGAF has said about them and WILL say about them in the future.

I don't know if this is smart or stupid of them

They should do an episode on N4G...that would be interesting. Lets make Mika our spokesperson :D ...I joke I joke

An episode on N4G starring Emilio Estevez...that sounds LEGIT!

He's obviously an attention seeker.

He should be spending more time playing videogames rather than fighting the webs.

Nah, he/she/it is awaiting for a 'sexist' article to pop up.

It'll bite them in the ass in the end. GAF has way more credibility than DoritosTV.

Industry people post on the GAF for goodness sake.

Patcher recently made these two ridiculous claims:ps4 rendering at 240fps(lol) and that FUSE will sell 5mil copies(LOL)

And now he's going for NeoGaf with GTTV?

I guess patcher isn't satisfied until someone completely humiliates the hell out of him.

Welp when the show airs i'll have my doritos and mountain dew ready for the "showdown" lol.

NeoGAF is amusing, and a good source of information, if you don't mind heavy mod censorship and selective quoting. However much of its fanbase represents everything that's wrong with modern gaming. And as a collective group, they are agenda motivated and frequently wrong.

I guess that last part is something GAF has in common with Pacther.

However using any message board, in 2013, when you have access to the almost total freedom of the image chans is ridiculous.

I love NeoGAF because it's a great source of hypocrisy. I love it when they make fun of other sites for fanboyism and trolling, yet they have an (easily found) abundance of users (mods included) who act just as horribly embarrassing. If NeoGAF is the best message board this industry can come up with, then no wonder gamers are still constantly the butts of so many jokes.

As for Pachter, sites like GAF give him the attention he wants. If sites like that didn't give him attention, we wouldn't have to read his always wrong "predictions."

Maybe they can banish one another from the industry. Would be a much better one then.

"In a surprising turn of events, though, Pachter decided to challenge NeoGAF and ‘prove’ how GAFfers are (mostly) smart and are (mostly) assholes."

"Pachter went one step further and claimed that he’s ‘amazed at the asshole factor on this website‘ and that ‘the asshole/civil ratio must be 2:1 or more."

So now he's predicting how many ASSHOLES are on the website!? This guy's a joke!

"Oh gee, they call me out on my bullshit so half of them must be assholes..."

rotflmao!!! Yea, okay! I seriously hope that they allow NeoGAF to defend themselves. Patchter is so full of crap!

"Pachter assumes that due to the more powerful hardware, games will run with a higher framerate. This might happen, but only if next-generation games retain the same image quality with today’s titles. Yes, there is a possibility for 120fps on next-gen consoles, provided those games remain at the same visual level with current-gen games. Let’s also not forget that current-gen console games run at sub-HD resolutions, meaning that you won’t hit that four times better algorithm if you run them at a 1080p resolution."

"After all, a lot of PS2 games ran at sub-30fps. PS3 was way more powerful than PS2. Did we get 120fps in our games and 4D? Pleaaaaase."

I'm all for freedom of speech, but where does the line get drawn when freedom of speech becomes trolling!? It really makes me wonder what the hell happened to just buying a console, and riding it out...

u again? why get so upset with patcher? did he hit a nerve when he dissed nintendo or something? Who cares what he says/thinks? lol its funny seeing people get so worked up over nothing.. PS4 is going to be a very powerful system that nx gen games will be going on.. Thats all that needs to be known.. All future sequels & new IPs will be on PS4 & possibly nxbox from AAA 3rd party devs.. Nothing else matters about small details cuz the future is there PERIOD.. Sony gets full 3rd party publisher support & thats all anyone needs to know if they want to play the new games that come out..

Gaf is a sad place to be or to read from, and Pachter is a sad man.
A perfect match, they should have kids, to entertain future generations of gamers.
chukamachine  +   689d ago
gaf has 10% of people who know what they are talking about, the other 90% have no clue.

A lot like n4g then.

I'm 50% sure of this.
Knushwood Butt  +   689d ago
I only understood 75% of your post.
Ddouble  +   689d ago
Neogaf is one of, if not the only gaming forum that people can use as a source for articles and I see it happening all the time here on N4G which shows how good it is as a whole.

But man are there some stupid people there also but there are people like that everywhere so it's normal
