But N4G loves it when you can frame him in the worst light humanly possible. Forget why he does things, just focus on the things you don't like! :D
Phil Fish is really good at pushing buttons. Even when he's maybe not trying to.
"But N4G loves it when you can frame him in the worst light humanly possible" He frames himself well enough.
Not our fault his biggest and most notable quality is his asshole personality.
Trust me This website doesn't need to help frame him for bad things. He does it quite well on his own.
Phil has some kind of mental problem. Even if this guy is just trolling, there's something that's just not right in his head to be saying or doing the stuff he's doing. If someone is close to him right now I'd sit him down and ask him why he's making a fool of himself. This strange behavior has been going on for far too long.
Try reading the comment sections here regarding anything slightly controversial, if fish got issues, the people here should be committed
Well a vast majority of this site are trolls. I learn not to take 90 percent of the commenters on here seriously and I ignore the a lot of the flaimbait articles. I think some of the guys that fit your description simply do it because they have a deep hatred of a product or to simply piss off people who like a product. With Phil I think he's seriously troubled.w
It doesn't matter how noble your goal is if you act like such an unlikable, egotistic idiot while pushing that goal.
Phil Fish is a whiny little bitch that goes into a full on toddler tantrum every time he doesn't get his way. Oh look, he canceled more games. Not like anyone gives a flying.
Yeah, fez kinda sucked. I would rather play echochrome; which didn't suck.
His cause was noble but the man does not know how to do it in the proper way. You don't make your point any better when you express yourself so horribly. I agree with his defense, not his executions.
This had nothing to do with standing up for Zoe Quinn. This was about Phil Fish drawing attention to himself and acting like a child. If anything, this will draw more heat to Quinn.
No, I think the pathetic ones would be the woman who cheated on her boyfriend with 5 men, her married boss and a Kotaku staff member included, to get her game made and promoted; also the people who defend those actions and act as if viewing her in a negative light are the only people in the wrong. Those are the pathetic people, Phil.
The "game" she made is worse then all the things you listed. Really, it's that fing bad.
what did zoe quinn do that people are attacking her ? her game seemed like a very personal project to her and if you don't like it don't buy it .
What is the game called ?
depression quest ? i've see her on a couple of giantbomb things , but i don't know much about her , other than her game was a little to far out there for my tastes .
It's detailed in the comments section of the article above, and there are some links that discuss it a bit further, but to summarize She lied about harassment to draw attention to her greenlight project on steam. That has pretty much been proven. She allegedly slept with several people(up to 5) in the gaming press to get her game promoted. Could be false since her ex b/f said that, but he did provide evidence of a sort. She made a game that apparently made a mockery of a serious mental illness, which to some was highly offensive because it was so off base. Apparently she used Robin Williams suicide to promote her game(hadn't seen anything myself on that one). Not sure if there's any more. That's what I've heard of this woman up until now, plus one thing that I read in the comments of the article. I won't really offer an opinion or speculate on the validity of all the listed above either, as I don't follow it enough to be able to accuse or defend her of anything. All I really know of her is that she made a rather mediocre game and somehow she became someone important because of it, even though she's currently a one hit wonder without any real hit.
thanks , i think i heard some of that before . i assume it was something to do with robin williams that got her the twitter abuse , not sure why anyone would anyone care about her sex life , like i said games like that are a little too experimental for me but making a bad game isn't a crime worth abuse even if its message isn't correct , its art , and art can be bad sometimes , just don't support her work in the future . not directed at you rainslacker
I doubt anyone cares about her sex life. I think the issue more was that she may have gotten unwarranted praise for her game due to her possibly sleeping with people who were game journalist. Guess the phrase, "She slept her way to the top" would be the best way I can describe the "scandal" easily. I'm not claiming she did such things, as really, I don't care enough. If she did, and it could be proved beyond a reasonable doubt, then I may have problems with the journalist who gave her game attention due to it, as it's unethical. Otherwise, I don't think her game was a huge hit. It got a lot of media press early on due to the whole harassment thing, but was quickly forgotten overall. Usually when these things come back up it's because the creator brought the attention back upon themselves to promote the game or themselves. Fish would be a perfect example of this. Anyhow, yes games can be art, but not all games are art. Sometimes, games are just made to make money. Despite what Quinn said about this being a personal experience(or however she worded it), from what I hear it was terribly done, and was quite insensitive to the actual topic. Her later comments on the whole game and herself lead me to believe that she's into it more for the money than the art.
I just finished reading the guy's blog about the whole thing and he makes a pretty strong argument with enough proof about the matter. I honestly feel bad for the guy to have to go through so much s*** and it that sense, it just makes Phil Fish more of a Douche. She can do what she wants with her sex life, but that doesn't excuse all the lies. The guy even defends her qualifications as a narrative designer.
I see he somehow turned the issue to revolve around him in his typical whiny fashion. Cancelling projects I doubt he even started, the whiney douche-nozzel.
lol is she braindead who put a chip on her wrist, hand or something?
Fish. . . seriously needs to shut the F up. He doesnt say anything good or bad with the right intention. He just wants attention. Sad to see that money and success couldnt buy you class, Fish.
I wonder if journalist are going to actually cover this case of clear corruption in game journalism.
All of modern "journalism" has a 'case of clear corruption' - Truth. (What ever happened to Investigative Report) OnTopic- "absolutely pathetic, ball-less manboobs." "video games could be so much more, but instead being held as hostage as masturbatory aids to witless manchilderen" "im tending again! oops!" Phil Phish being fill fish?
After THIS: https://twitter.com/PHIL_FI... I never meet bigger snobistic asshole than him. F*** him and his fez. He think that he's some sort of Guru and it's all our fault? well fuck him. Seriously this guy has some sort of mental problems. This isn't normal.
I've noticed the marshmallows in Lucky Charms are getting soggy really quick now a days. They used to hold their crunch for a good 5 minutes. I think this is what's bothering Phil too.
"I just cancelled a project you didn't even know about! Because somehow that would hurt you! Yeah take that ya meanies!". What a loser.
If anybody thinks fish is more than a egotistical ass, they are mistaken. I personally can't wait for the world to forget he exists.
Is Zoe Quin trying to cheat people out of money? That is certainly my understanding.
Well.... all except for the fact that when he claimed she was being sexually harassed and someone came forward and announced that he had been sexually harassed by her at a wedding to which he told him to STFU. Hypocritical is a massive understatement. She claims to be this feminist hero, when at the heart of it she is sleeping with various guys, cheats on her partner, and when she thinks she is going to be exposed as being FAKE she plays the victim. PA-thetic.
