Congratz. Btw, the people hating on him might wanna consider starting to believe in karma. And I'm no HHG fan, but I have to give credit where it's due.

This is why America's TV broadcasts suck. On top of the ridiculous pattern (& time) they give to commercials. America is also taking good ideas from Japan and turning them into garbage with shows like Hole in the Wall & Silent Library. Now you have even more shitty programs like the Fred movie, Big Time Rush, and apparently HHG show (as if GTTV wasn't bad enough).

He is a very genuine good person. I met him at PAX and got to spend a good while chatting him up. I wish him the best.
specialguest  +   1356d ago
Congratulations to HHG
There's only one world and one life to live. You either make the most of it, or you don't, and HHG went from an unknown guy recording himself in his room with his cheap bed sheet background, to what he has achieved today in 2 short years.

There are a lot of haters out there, and more will continue to hate. What the haters don't realized is that THEY too have contributed to his success by giving him hits and flaming up his N4G post.

@hitman
And your a known fanboy for HHG so your hardly the balanced unbiased voice of reason.

Your a moderator on his website and Dualshockers who you write for are firmly in bed with HHG.

This isnt anything against HHG btw, just your bullshit attempt at trying to call people out.
ABizzel1  +   1356d ago
Congrats. Stay motivated to keep pushing forward, don't settle. Settling will net you nothing in life, but the same achievements that the individuals who come here everyday and every couple of hours. NOTHING.

Congrats to this guy good job!!! All the hating I've heard over the years has really paid off. I wonder if this means no more HHG on N4G. Time to get professional HHG and keep on climbing that ladder. It's going to be interesting to see how far this guys makes it.
XGamer  +   1356d ago
Wait...ahhhhhhh ha ha ha damn i didn't think it was april yet, but this has to be april fools day for this headline to be posted. HHG big joke to the gaming community, just a big joke. ahhh you guys, stop being so sillyyy:)
iforgotmylogin  +   1356d ago
so ask him is he gonna give up n4g and leave the ppl behind that made him big?

imo he started here and blew up here from our negative and positives towards his hour long shows.

so lets see the next move sell out and forget or embrace n4g and make it bigger and provide a platform for the next person like your self to get a look.

and i really hope you read this comment hhg.
NYC_Gamer  +   1356d ago
Congrats dude...
Zimmerman  +   1356d ago
The first article I ever saw by HHG mentioned something about trying to get a show on t.v. if I remember correctly.

I didn't think twice about it then, but here he is. Pretty impressive to see someone stick to their guns until they succeed.

He is living the American dream i spose.

I honestly can't believe the 'gaming world' has grown enough to have it's own culture.

It's kinda weird.
ElVeneno  +   1356d ago
@Yes_2 Umm why? Because someone out of your culture is having success. Regardless of wether you like him or not, he DOES share a passion for gaming and journalism. He put in the work starting from nothing, regardless of how much people like you trashed him. So I think he deserves it. Congrats to him. There are too many of the same people out there. He's a breath of fresh air. He stays true to himself, you have to respect that. Your comments just go to show how immature your are.

meh
hes no worse then patcher and the gametrailers "journalist", just to name a few

i say good for him, still doing his thing even with all the hate and still succeeding

@ below, who noes what patchers official job title is, im thinking

"professional guesser"

"gaming predictor"

"random dude with no clue what hes doing"

Patcher isn't a journalist, is he? He's an "analyst" (which basically means "lousy psychic")
Ares84PS3  +   1356d ago
Well the thing is, he is the worst.

I'm sorry to say but that "ganxta ghetto" acting doesn't belong in journalism. That way of life is low and disrespectful. The way he talks is disrespectful. Learn to speak properly. I understand that this is a way of life, well sort of and this is how he is. I can accept that. But as long as he is this "ganxta crapper" he doesn't belong in the public. What kind of example will he be to younger gamers?? The worst kind. People like him should not be allowed to stain an industry that already has a bad reputation.

I'm telling you all that for as long as people like HHG will be allowed to reach such a hight, gaming journalism will just sink lower and lower.

It's not only that but all the flamebait and fuel for fanboy wars articles he and his "staff" writtes is a huge problem. His predictions are always over the top and he let's his "staff" speak their mind which unfortunately is all the time extremely biased. For example, the last time I've read anything from him (well from one of his "staff") was an "article" about how superior the 360 is compared to the PS3 and how bad the PS3 is. HHG actually let this guy publish this trash on his site. Now if they are full of bias and double standards like this than what the hell are they doing in the video game journalism world?? Don't we have tons of bias journalists already??? At least others try to hide it as much as they can.

No gents, HHG isn't good for v.g. journalism. Not in the least.

As for Patcher; he is a clown. He also should dissapear from gaming journalism all together. He has no idea what he talks about 98% of his "predictions" are wrong and any gamer can see right than and there. A 12year old gamer has a better sence of the video gaming world than Patcher.

My mind is just buffled that how people like this two are even allowed to voice their opinion on video games. They have no clue what so ever.

@Ares84PS3
i read your wall of text and with respect, disagree with almost everything

first, this is the internet, not prime time TV, he is free to speak how ever he wants, no one looks to him to find the "correct" way to speak (i dont even think that exists, we all speak differently after all)

the "gangsta" persona is just that, we wouldn't be commenting about his style if he was into rock or pop, be honest now...

"I'm telling you all that for as long as people like HHG will be allowed to reach such a hight, gaming journalism will just sink lower and lower"

what about sites like gametrailers, where the journalist speak clear english yet spread misinformation, opinion and bias as if it were fact, there are far more well established sites that bring little to the gaming world
perhaps you should look there first?

as for flamebait thats simple, fanboys comment on it, the site gets loads of hits, thats all that matters, HHG is not the first nor that last to use such methods

i'll stick by what i said, he is no worse then gametrailers or patcher, at least he brings a different style to gaming which no one else has

I don't care for the "dumbed down ghetto" style you put on for your viewers (when we all know you're smarter than that) but I always like to see people succeed.
Graey  +   1356d ago
Couldn't have said it better myself. I hope he does do something than the crap that's out now. It's plain to see that he can do better. Hopefully as things go on the show/person will mature and bring forth a style not brought on by a gimmick of what people think black/hip hop should be.

WOW...He had alot of hate from some people on N4G and now he has gotten his own show.This is just another story from the bottom to the top.Where are all the people that bash him on N4G.Im sure u wish u had ur own show!!! Congrats..Keep climbing up the ladder and get ur money.

And dont forget ur loyal fans that defended u against the hate on N4G ;)

EDIT:-(BELLOW)

@Yes_2 "Above" u said "Sometimes I really fucking hate the gaming world... " Is it bcuz an inspiring game journalist who has been trying to make it for years has finally made it!!! U should b happy and inspired that if it can happen to him it can happen to any body, or is it bcuz he is black and he mixes hip hop culture with gaming(dont say im playing the race card im just speaking my mind).Ur commment has alot of anger and hate to it.Haters like u need help, im sure if u were the one trying for years and finally making it u will b happy or if it was ur friend or family member u will b happy so why cant u be happy for him..I know u will say bcuz he has flame bate topic but lets b honest here how many topics in the gaming world have u seen that has flame bait topics.(im sure is alot) and not just in the gaming world but in the showbiz world on general. Pls do not b bias.

Dude, have you checked out the people he has "signed" with?

I'd check it out before you assume someone has "made" it.
greatjimbo78  +   1356d ago
For me it has nothing to do with colour or creed. It's because he's crap! He's just an awful games journalist.

Edit: That's not to say we shouldn't admire him. He's worked hard and deserves the reward.

no matter how the haters try 2 spin it u know damn well its cuz he's black plus hip hop vibe. I dont agree with him all the time though but thats the main reason.
greatjimbo78  +   1356d ago
Really? I find your statement offensive. Don't force your preconceptions on other people, little man.

I won't spin it..

I'm not a fan of his "hip hop vibe".
Gaming journalism is not the place for it.

It's nothing to do with his skin colour though.

Wait. Where did it say that he's gotten his own show? I read, that he's signed with a group that's going to market him for a show. Do you know how many people produce shows that never see the light of day? Congrats to him for taking an important step to start bringing in some real funds. But he does not have a show yet.
hankmoody  +   1356d ago
On one hand, I'll give the man credit. Congrats HHG, you've taken a major step in your career. I just hope you don't continue to rely on flamebait articles and crap headlines created solely to draw a response. I think you have it in you to really bring forth some good and decent gaming journalism.

@L3XXY ..Ur just another ignorant racist fool. But truth b told some people (i would say a few cuz i have lots of white friends on this site)......on this site dose not like this news bcuz he is black..If it was called rockgamershow or popgamershow and a white man made it from the bottom to the top it will b a different story.Any way im not suprised, racism is still alive and it can never die out.Its just sad bcuz we are all gamers on this site and games have nothing to do with racism...One luv black or white i dont care.

@Yes_2 Yes they are not the only one that are hated on but the are the ones that are hated on the most :| ..And the reason why i brought race into this is bcuz off what L3XXY said.

Are you serious? Do you have to bring race into EVERY comment you make?

Nobody (besides Lexxy and his bullshit racist comment) is hating on HipHopGamer because of his race. Try reading the comments as to why people don't like him, instead of jumping to conclusions.

And newsflash: Black journalists aren't the only journalists who are hated on, so stop pretending that race has anything to do with this.

(Edit) Black game journalists are hated the most? Since when? Have you seen the amount of hatred that journalists and developers themselves of ALL races recieve on this site alone (Patcher, Jaffe, CliffyB, everyone at Square Enix except Nomura, the Nintendo team, etc...just to name a few)
