The moron strikes again: Uwe Boll says games have no story

The moron strikes again: Uwe Boll says games have no story photo



There's a difference between looking like a moron and just being stupid. Uwe Boll has crossed that line with his usual dignity and aplomb many a time, and each time I hope without reason it may be his last. In a recent interview on Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld on Fox News, Boll had the following to offer when asked how he deals with criticism of his films:

"A lot of video games have no story. I did the movie House of the Dead and got bashed and I said, what were you expecting, Schindler's List? I showed zombies chasing people and this is basically what the movie delivers.

"I don't know what they were expecting if you make a movie based on an ego shooter where you kill ninety minutes of people non-stop."

Translation: Stop expecting me to create a watchable project worth your money.

This wails cop-out to me, but expecting Boll to function on the same level as a normal human being possessing working brains is an exercise in futility. He goes on in the interview to trash internet critics, saying "They don't have their own life and they're still sitting at Mommy's table every lunch."

Apparently Uwe is unaware that there is an actual game industry, where journalists go to offices and write about current affairs, just like real reporters. You won't believe this, Uwe -- we get paid too. In fact, a great deal of the time, our lunches are paid for. Tell that to your mom the next time she's whipping you up a tunafish sandwich, because at the rate your films are generating profit you may be moving back in with her soon.
