Jaffe to Destructoid: Can't I have an opinion!?

Jaffe to Destructoid: Can't I have an opinion!? photo



Twisted Metal director David Jaffe upset a number of our more mental Xbox 360 fanboys yesterday when we quoted his comments on console exclusivity. After earning a torrent of vitriol from various community members for flying the Sony colors, Jaffe hit back in no uncertain terms.

"Holy f**k, Destructoid Xbox-only owners out in full force against me," Jaffe said on Twitter. "WTF? I can't have an opinion? It's not that we would not LOVE to have our games in every home in the world ... even the ones without electricity.

"F**k it -- we don't care! It's just that we value our relationship with Sony very, very much. They give us extra time to make the game great, lots of creative and marketing and business support. And we like the people over there tons; they are like family. Why is it so hard to understand we'd like to stay in that kind of working relationship?"

Speaking as somebody who has taken a battering from fanboys on both side of the fence, I'll give Jaffe a thumbs up here. Especially since he also stated he loves Destructoid as a site and said nice things about a certain British editor ...

"While I was somewhat bummed and surprised by the Destructoid commenter hate, I got nothing but love for the site itself. And Sterling is actually a great voice of no bullshit game journalism that I really respect a lot. He calls BS on a lot of hyperbolistic crap and I love that about his work."

I guess those people trying to curry favor with Jaffe by slagging me off winded up with a lil' egg on their faces. Now to fashion a little badge that says "Jaffe Approved" and wear it to parties!
