Fez Creator Wants to Make Huge Games

Fez creator, Phil Fish often seems to be one of the gaming industry’s biggest critics, and following him on Twitter is often a tense experience because you never know what he’ll say. He might call the 3DS “bullshit,” or he might go after his loyal followers for being so uptight. (3DS, Dev, PC, Phil Fish, PS Vita, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

Who cares? The guy ripped off flash games, that's where he got his ideas for Fez. He's also a cheapass who broke his game on XBL with a patch and then refused to fix it because he didn't want to pay for another patch. You broke the game Phil, it's your responsibility and your obligation to make it right. If you have to pay again to fix your mistakes then so be it. Microsoft even offered to help him out, and to reduce the fees as much as possible. He still refused.

Not to mention the fact that he's a dick and has a real attitude problem. From the way he talks down to the rest of the industry, you'd think he was one of the best developers ever. But no, he's just an amateur. Honestly reminds me a lot of Rovio. Both stole all of their ideas, both have no creativity or talent of their own, and both have no respect for the industry or other developers.

The difference between them is that Phil has zero respect for his customers. He will never get a penny from me.

Yeah, I've seen him in "Indie Developers" movie. He's complete idiot.

I wasn't planning on supporting him in the first place as his game simply doesn't interest me. Then I saw Indie Movie and he didn't exactly endear himself to me there either. Came off as bit of a nut job in my opinion. Since then he always seems to be making noise about the industry and I've largely ignored it. I didn't realize he had so little respect for his fans and such a lack of professionalism when it came to supporting his own products though. I've got no issue with taking inspiration from flash games. It's just generally his attitude and his tendency to crap all over everything that leaves me inclined to withhold support.

Jonathan Blow's a bit of an asshole too. Kojima has spent the last several months on a viral advertising campaign.

Who cares? The games are good.

And then you compare him to Rovio? If everything of theirs is stolen, then why is it that they have had the success? It's because Angry Birds has a charm that all the other fling things games don't.

Rovio are one of the most professional companies in existence, the way they've turned a free/cheap game into a franchise is pretty amazing.

If his game is good I'm buying it.

I hate Rovio as well. They talked shit like they were one of the greatest devs ever and all they could make were repetitive bird flinging games.

can anyone explain why the game is "broken" after that patch? you cant complete it? what's up?

It is a save glitch, IIRC that wipes your save data or something.

So is he going to make a game about his ego?...
He is a giant dick and acts very unprofessional. He doesn't care either. Nothing like telling people to suck his dick, or he is glad the tsunami hit japan and killed a bunch of people, because Japan makes bad games.

He isn't going to be getting my money either.

Isn't he the dude that said "Japanese games suck"?? Isn't he also the dude who said the Handheld industry sucks too??
Like who the fuck he is?? sorry, not gonna buy your games asshole

this guy is a joke, no one should buy his games, should set an example for all the other people in the gaming industry. Be decent, idiot, you can't get away with this. He should learn how to be more mature first before making any more games.

Why are you people so upset with him? It's not like you are forced to agree with his opinions and criticism.

I don't really care what he says, as long as he makes good games. For my understanding Fez was considered pretty good by many.

Words are just words, anyone can talk trash.
Hicken  +   464d ago
I don't like him. I won't give him my money. He's disrespectful to virtually everyone, and is more than full of himself. It might be just me, but I'd much rather support a humble developer who makes average games than a talented dev who's a dick to everybody. And I can't think of anything else he's done besides the distantly interesting Fez, so I don't see where he's earned the right to open his mouth and say what he's said.
