How not to ask an interview question

Cat got your tongue

Sometimes, it’s really hard to know what to ask in an interview setting, and it’s especially daunting when your brain isn’t working because jetlag has turned you in to a zombie. ย And maybe this guy from Machinima was just so overwhelmed and blown away by Titanfall that he lost all brain functioning. But I love that they posted this video to show just how garbled some questions can get.

Here is the video:

For those who can’t/won’t watch, the guy literally asks:

How did you, how is the gameplay so smooth versus what we’re actually seeing like the YouTube videos and stuff like that of gameplay in the sense that they’re what the kids are at home watching the gameplay and they’re saying, “Wow, ya know, like this this looks really smooth, this looks really easy.” How are you guys matching that same quality of game to Call of Duty 4 or Modern Warfare.

Um, yes? I believe yes is the only possible answer. Talk about word salad!

Press events can sometimes be silly. Everyone is jetlagged and stressed; it’s rare for people to be at the top of their game. Plus, throw in some awesome gaming experiences, and you can add overwhelmed to the equation. Oh well, at least I can feel better about some of my awkward moments in interviews. Thanks to the guys at Machinima for giving us a laugh on a Friday!

    What? Did someone put an eggbeater in his brain and just turn it on while he spoke?

    I’m random. I really am. But what the fuck?

    Bruce is the most biased person on Machinima. Do not like him at all.

    That gives all new meaning to the phrase “Cat got your tongue”…

    I doubt that lion ever wanted a tongue piercing…

    so i was just playing teh fall of titans, and amazed as i am, i have to ask, in real life, how many cod blops would it take to fly with this into the dream world, and come out with something silky like modern warfare, but comparable to the sheets at my hotel

    i think my question made more sense

    Translation: (In laymans terms) He wanted to know how smooth the gameplay was when u actually played it and how it stacked up against Cod MW, cuz the videos didnt do it justice…. There you go ๐Ÿ™‚
