HipHopGamer Gets A Grade

The HipHopGamer has always been a fascinating person to me. His enthusiasm is unmatched while his grammatical skills are…well, lacking. So, I asked myself, what if a series of HipHopGamer articles were submitted to a certified high school teacher as a writing assignment? The results are staggering if not enlightening.

Man HHG is surely getting famous, you all know how that happened right.

ALL OF YOU GUYS DID IT TO YOURSELVES.

hitting his links

60% is a -D?
how lucky, that's an F here.

Anyway i never took his writing serious. He may get the information out and everything, but to me this was expected especially with his titles. He isn't really a bad journalist considering that he can get out and get this information, he just isn't to well with his grammar.

Wow! We've stumbled upon a slippery slope! I hope the smart guy that decided that HHG's grammer was more important than his content remembers to use proper grammer at all times. Not only must they use proper grammer. . . The grammer must also be engaging and entertaining. That's what "gamers" want. We're actually "grammers" in disguise.

Nitrowolf22465d ago (Edited 2465d ago )

good grammar makes for a good story. Doesn't have to be PERFECT though, just understandable.
Have you ever read anything that isn't understandable and yet it has important content in it? It's still critical to have even if it doesn't seem important to most people here.

either way HHG stuff is still understandable
and why exactly was this approved? I thought Blogs weren't allowed and also how is this really gaming related?? Yeah the person might be a gamer and having a
game site, but checking on his grammar is news??

Whoever wrote this article, I have a question for you. Who the hell are you?

hip hop gamer... is... GAAAY!!

HolyOrangeCows2465d ago (Edited 2465d ago )

"60% is a -D?

.
States like Illinois have improved their test scores by changing the standards.
The inflation of education.

I'll give him a D minus, minus, minus. Just barely above Pachter's score.
He gets something right at least ONCE every blue moon.
That said, once in a blue moon doesn't make his stupid videos worth watching or any less intolerable.

I_find_it_funny2465d ago

why someone bother to do this is beyond me. write your own shit and send to a teacher, dumb fu*ks

SasanovaS19872465d ago

lets be honest...ive shared classes with plenty of people who lack grammar skills, and their even born in the US. for someone like myself, a foreigner living in your country (US), im ashamed to say majority of your population is not up to par with the rest of the world when it comes to education. no need to make fun of HHG's writing skills when majority of your own population is the exact same as him...

He's still crap. He's just famously crap.

UltimateIdiot9112465d ago

Just like other craps that manage to get famous. Refer to textbook example: Jersey Shore.

gamesmaster2465d ago

Personally i like the guy and find his enthusiasm entertaining, he might not be perfect with his grammar but his style of delivery and uniqueness within his field sets him apart from the others.

Yes he does come accross as biased and sometimes his thoeries are weakly supported but, hes just doing his thing and thats writing articles about what he loves and sharing it to the gaming comunity.

I dont get the hate towards him personally, he obviously puts work into getting his information and setting up interviews, so why bash him on grammar and and his english when he himself is cleary not bothered about it and is concentrating on what matters, the games.

thats just my opinion. merry christmas

Lionhead2465d ago

No offense but how is this gaming news?

I know it was only approved out of spite, but I already have to deal with enough HipHopGamer when browsing this site.

dalibor2465d ago

Well at least he has a passion for gaming. I mean he could get someone to help him out with his articles. It's not the end of the world and if you don't like anything that he does than just don't read or go to his website if it bothers you that much. We all have pet peeves but we must deal with it at times. It's not that hard. There are a lot of gaming sites you can go to as well.

Persistantthug2465d ago

love HHG.

They won't admit it...but they are fans.

If they weren't fans, they wouldn't be here now commenting and spreading news of his name.

For whatever reason, HipHopGamer has these people right where he wants them.

Good for him.

jack_burt0n2465d ago

He likes to rap in the middle of his show, i dont trust his reviews :) he likes to make stuff up and do crazy headlines

BUT

He is still a much better source of gaming news and entertainment than IGN, Gamespot, Kotaku, EDGE, Eurogamer, Videogamer and g4tv.

Hahahhaah ~

Maybe he should change his shtick to "The Hip-Hop Grammar Show".

An A+ for trolling

Heavy_Rain2465d ago

The only person who can get an A+ for trolling is you.

"I think the HipHopGamer is a wonderful human being who clearly speaks for a core demographic of gamers."

No.
