Christ, did Gawker acquire Polygon when I wasn’t looking?

There is a significant group of people who are otherwise rational people who just go completely insane when TLOU is involved.

The people who look at the (ever increasing) compilations of the not-so-great AI in the game and shriek about bugged copies or how they never saw any of these problems in their 900 playthroughs.

The people who talked shit about 60 FPS and now are instantly praising it (or worse, insisting they’ll play it on the 30 FPS setting for ‘purity’)

It’s mostly focused on neoGAF, it’s genuinely sort of worrying. Some of them actually make me think they’d strike someone who besmirched the game in front of them.

ha ha, we devalued perfect scores so much we have to joke about giving 11/10! ha ha!

I have no idea.

There are clearly some that seem like nice people. Jeff Gerstmann seems like a nice guy. Really, most of the Giant Bomb crew seem nice. Even Klepek, whom I find sort of grating (and agree with on very few things), I think I could have a conversation with.

But then you have like.. Arthur Gies. Ben Kuchera. Leigh Alexander. These people don’t seem like they’d be very much fun to be around even if you agreed with them. They seem sort of bitter. I can’t tell you the reason. Maybe it’s that they can see themselves being phased out and are becoming defensive, while people like Gerstmann are more confident. Maybe they can’t handle the combination of semi-fame while being hooked into every form of social media imaginable. Maybe they’re a tad narcissistic and take everything as a personal affront.

Just try not to be like that, I guess? It can be hard, and I’m sure I slip into it sometimes. You gotta just try to not let stuff make you so mad.

Ben Kuchera responds to criticism from women.

When Liam Neeson shoots you, you stay dead son.

Anonymous said: ANOTHER GUNPOINT QUESTION! This time, you are forced to choose between Kotaku or Polygon as your only source of gaming news, which would you choose? Hint: there is an escape option, but it is only Geoff Knightley.

My answer to these is always going to be letting Liam Neeson shoot me in the face.
