Very informative. He is redeeming himself after the whole trophy debacle for me.

It was only his opinion. Not really his fault the rest of the media ran with it.

The way he structured his opinion, and the fact that he has clout in the industry, is why many people have lost a great deal of respect for him. And in fact his opinion was one of those rare instances where an opinion is wrong because, and this is shocking for someone with a college degree in journalism, he completely misused the term misogyny and indirectly accused Sony Santa Monica of being misogynists and anyone who likes God of War Ascension of being typical frat boy, dudebro, jesery shore douchebags.

Sometimes people like Madam Sessler need to remember the position they are in and learn to think before they speak.

It really wasn't just his opinion. He belittled anyone who didn't think there was something wrong with the trophy. He called those people sadistic fratboys, and said that he wouldn't be associated with them (people who didn't find anything wrong with the trophy).

You guys need to ball up. I thought the bros before hoes trophy was hilarious and I thought everyone getting all butthurt about it was even funnier.

Your really going to hold a grudge against a guy who talks about video games because he hurt your feelings?

I've watched Adam for about a decade now, I have no problems not agreeing with him. But look at all of you taking all of this way too seriously because you have nothing meaningful in your lives. If you did, this would be a non-issue.

Now, On topic. When it comes to Sony opening up to indies. It probably has a lot to do with the innovators dilemma. Like Adam mentions idies have the freedom to do more innovative things and explore more ideas. They can absorb more failure than big games thus they can take more risks. In taking risks you find innovation, so even though there'll probably be more crap on the PSN, there will also be more cool stuff for us to mess around with. I think Plus is going to get a lot cooler on PS4.

@demonddel: Man I've been an active member of this site for about 5 years now and I've seen the coolest trolls come and go. Now it's all these tweens that get their panties in a bunch over the smallest things. No wonder non gamers think that gamers just sit in their underwear all day, they act like video games are the most important things in the world. It's pathetic.

I miss the open zone. Some of these kids need to be put in timeout. Take away the bubbles and give us back the open zone.

@RememberThe357 man you dont know the SDF team by know these dudes are so sensitive they keep me laughing all day they the reason i come to this site

what's funny is i beat it this sunday past, and ended up getting the trophy. i thought some patch was suppose to change it or something.

personally i love the trophy, and his sensitive opinion means nothing in the grand scheme of things.

as for the indie scene it's good that they are being embraced like the are for the upcoming gen.
No he's not and he never will.

Did the mean man take your candy? Jesus, you guys are babies.

I don't see how opening the PS4 to indies would be a bad thing, nor do I think anyone would say additional would be a bad thing, so I fail to see how stating the obvious can add to anyones creditability.

Glad he aint complaining about sony not having enough indie female devs. Anyways yes its always great to have more support, but thank sessler for this old news.

You damn right it's a good thing. Looking at all the obscure, for lack of a better word, games on PC, this is opening up a whole other world of games to the console audience, since the majority of either crowd doesn't mix. I never thought I would see Hotline Miami on PlayStation. DayZ is on the table. Jonathan Blow was actually on stage at the PS meeting. I really appreciate the strong focus on gaming from all angles. My wallet doesn't, but I do.

I had respect for this guy but his clown move with the trophy debacle has left a bitter taste in my mouth. I can't relate to someone who b!tches about such a miniscule thing.

He may be a gamer, but certainly not my kind of gamer. There for his opinion is moot. STFU and pull your skirt up Sessler.

This guy really pissed me off with that whole issue around the trophy. *SPOILERS* ....... I saw the scene with the trophy and this guy was crying about how kratos brutally beat down one of the furies and he saw it as unnecessary and too violent, but she never even died from that beating. Also compared with most of the gow series kills it was nothing, so IMO it seemed as he was making a big deal out of nothing.

old news sessler.

now go bitch about something else because that's what you are known for these days.

Well most of the thoughts on here mirror my own sentiment regarding this guy.

I used to check for his videos because he was one of the few in the gaming industry who's opinion I somewhat gave a damn about..

Now after this fiasco, I really don't care to know what he's thinking or babbling about..

It started maybe a few episodes back watching this Sessler's Something and (I'm guessing) Mr. Sessler was realizing that he's getting older and can't finish games and the mid life crisis was apparently upon him... it's almost as if he was waiting for something like this to raise a baseless platform or "soapbox" even...

sigh.... Mr. Sessler, it's also my understanding that the "Bros Before Hoes" Trophy was the idea of a wait for it... a female on the GOWA team...

I could see if the trophy read "Bitchez Aint Shyt" that would merit more of a discussion regarding controversial.

But all of this being loud about nothing. Dementia, Alzheimer's all of that sh*t must be setting in sir.

Can't wait to see what he fills his depends up with next to make us smell.

and.. I'll pass on this vid. If you excuse me, Kratos and I have some "misogynistic" sh*t to get into. Peace


Btw, this is no disrespect to any of you or someone you know who may have elders that are dealing with the type of illnesses I mentioned pertaining to Adam ineptitude. Those are very real illnesses and I am merely pointing out his very flawed view of misogyny.

Did I see the Sess interviewing Pachter?

I don't like this guy for some reason. Something seems off with him.

His b*tch fit with the whole GoW trophy is simply stupid. Reason why I don't respect the guy.

Guy needs to grow a pair. I respect and appreciate women just like the next guy, but who the hell is he to be a knight in shining armor talking as if he's the spokesperson for women in general and their best interests.
