Let's Drop the Angry Act, Children.

Recently Phil Fish! And Marcus Beer! And an explosion of Twitter insanity!

If you haven't heard about this by now, you haven't visited a game site in the past few days. But basically, Phil Fish said a thing, and a gent by the name of The Annoyed Gamer responded on a Gametrailers program by calling Fish a "doo doo head" a "smelly farty butt" and a "smegma encrusted dick penis from hell" or equivalent insults. The blowback that occurred was essentially Phil Fish hitting the proverbial "Retire" button on his metaphorical mission screen, that mission being the creation of Fez 2, also known as "a game I really hoped didn't have a buttfuckingly irritating map that I had to walk all over for hours again before uninstalling it from my Xbox to make room for Deathsmiles 2."

I'd personally say "no thanks" to that sorry lot of fickle manbabies and shoot for the stars for a better class of audience. And in turn, if we WANT a better class of audience, we need to have more people out there who act as positive role models. Because these personalities ARE influential, as insane as that may sound, and the more negative icons we have sitting in the spotlight, the more people will find it acceptable to be indecent, overly cynical dickwads who never listen to crticism, and pretend that they fart perfume and shit out diamonds.

The reality is far less pretty than that, and is certainly a lot stinkier.

About TheManchildone of us since 2:03 PM on 08.10.2011


I am an aging man with starving children. I write blogs about video games. My favorite system is the Game Boy. I have three of them in my house; one in the shitter, one by my computer, and one in my pocket.

My aspiration in life is to not die. Runner up is writing and creating random bullshit related to my only hobby, which is games. I guess I read books too. But nobody cares about OLD MAN hobbies like that, so get outta town, GRANDPA!

My favorite game is Ecco the Dolphin. I like to speedrun it because it makes me feel like a big man, except when the credits run, which is where I usually reflect sadly upon the rest of my life. I love dick jokes and farts. Dickfarts.

I want to write for Destructoid some day, but the staff here are too smart to hire me. I need to find a clever way to trick a legitimate enthusiast site to pay me a small amount of money to do something for them or I can never happy.

But even then, I probably still won't be happy.

Such is life.
