Adam Sessler from G4TV hits back at fanboys. Hard.

2 min read

As you all know, Killzone 2 is looking to be the next best thing since sliced bread.

And although one wonders why so many people believe that sliced bread is at the top of the list of the human races list of achievements, it goes without saying that where there is hype, there are fanboys and with Killzone 2, there is more hype than sliced bread could have ever hoped for.

After giving Killzone 2 a perfect score of 5 out of 5, G4TV was still attacked by commenters, saying that they are bias towards the 360. Really? How in the heck do you wangle that one?

You will seriously not believe the words coming out of Adam Sessler’s mouth as he bites back at the commenters with little mercy and I while I never think it’s a good thing to offend your readers/viewers, some of the comments where well deserved.

I think that a lot of videogame journalists out there are getting sick and tired of having their writing mocked and their integrity questioned. And while I do think that it’s a good thing that Adam lashed out a bit, things like this shouldn’t become the norm, because it’s just going to add more fuel to the fire.

I would tell you that this video is not safe for work, but any bad words have been bleeped out, although filling in the blanks isn’t very hard, so maybe just turn the volume down a touch.

  • “Joe…Joe…you dillusional f*ck!” 😆
    That was brilliant.
    I share his sentiments.
    Some Fanboys can have the most warped sense of reality.

    Fanboys,even God hates them.They are just a bunch of cowards hiding behind a screen name trying to get a reaction from people,especially on sites like Kotaku.Like Yahtzee said,they are probably all high school kids whose mom bought them one console and they try cling desperatly to the hope they didn’t get the one that ends up dying first (like the Saturn).Anyway back to work, gotta earn them monies to buy games hehe :biggrin:

  • that was truly the best part of the entire thing…

  • is it just me or did anyone get the feeling he should play the Joker in the next batman movie…? :ninja:

  • Goose ZA

    That was awesome =) :angel:

    Lol… somehow managed to click the angel on my way to the submit button =)

  • I felt it was Angelic :whistle:

  • easy

    as funny as it was, i found he has single handedly destroyed his own integrity!
    every one that uses the internet has the ability to voice their opinion, and should not be chastised for exercising that ‘right’. whether or not a person uses that ‘right’ with a logical or at least thought out opinion is totally up to them. if any one choose to question the integrity of some one else’s opinion is also well within their ‘rights’ to do so… kinda like how governments work :silly:

    and as to a resolution to fanboyism, well there is none and never will be. the only productive way to stifle fanboys is to ignore them… simple as that.

    a totally over-the-top reaction and as Nick alluded to, is just going add fuel to the fire and resolve the ignorance of fanboys.

    Ahaha, that guy is funny :alien:

  • You have a point but possibly that was his intention as well, I don’t usually follow his show but I am going to be tuning into his next rant to see if he explodes again…

    It’s like a car wreck, you just can’t look away

  • RogueOne

    Jees….is somebody looking for a larger audience ?
    Well you got it.

  • RogueOne

    ooops forgot….I can see how journos would be getting tired of critics etc…….but as a reader I must say that I dont even know where to get a decent review nowadays.
    Some journos are failing to review a game in its targeted light i.e Racepro got so much neg reviews as the reviewers were terrible SIM racers.
    Surely they should review it entirely from a SIM point of view. I say use a little more thought and less heart when reviewing and dont always go for the SHOCK value.

    Anyways I like this site and journos….nice articles that dont p*** me off.

    I loved that clever “Killzone 2 is the best thing to happen to XBOX” …..clever cleverl stuff, I studied a bit of journalism in my studies and must say 10/10. Captured the interest with clever heading and then only revealed its meaning end.

    the only thing i get out of this is that sessler is one strange guy. his movments and excitment is creepy. and that lantern jaw is ginormous.
