    I think it's more than likely to be fake. It's just too perfect.

    Not perfect as in good, but simple and spot on what they would love.

    Sorry if this has been posted already, but I can't help but feel like Fish expected the gaming industry to receive him similar to this:

    Dangerous way of thinking to be sure.

    Excellent use of grammar to mask your identity, Phil. You dense motherfucker.
    Obvious troll. He obviously crafted that sentence so people would think i made a genuine mistake and blew my cover

    no surprise, it's written by manbaby Ben Kuchera
    who went on a tirade slandering another writer, and then cried when people called him out on it
    and then he backpedalled by shutting his ears and switching his twitter pic to the "Deal with it" dog

    these are the grown men who work in the games industry
    to pull out a good old SH chestnut, ad hominem much? it says something when literally all the putdowns in this thread towards devs who have experienced abuse at the hands of retards are personal attacks on their character rather than actually addressing their arguments

    why are you complaining about a word he used rather than what he actually said?

    Seriously, this is what threads like this devolve into. Anyone with any interest at all in a reasoned balanced discussion eventually leaves after a few pages because the force of the circlejerk cannot be stopped. It's now literally page after page of people just sitting around agreeing with each other and nitpicking bullshit with whiny inconsequential arguments.

    Because if you don't have someone sitting opposite you SCREAMING at you to actually form a coherent argument as to why you hate something rather than just blind 'oh it rubs me up the wrong way'-ness you fall into this cavern of shite. You should all be ashamed of yourselves, not for your attitude or opinions about fish, but for being such fucking lazy thinkers.

    Monk, I have nothing against you personally, but the most solid argument I have seen from you in this vein of discussion thus far is "I can sympathize with him because he reminds me of myself."

    Step back a moment and just dwell on that.

    We've all settled on the fact that Phil Fish was an asshole and he got what was coming for him, but every time we're ready to drop the matter and move onto other business, you come along with sort of the same argument and you jerk the circle again.

    I mean I have nothing against it, hell if anything I could even admire it, but it's still sort of unfair to call us on circlejerk while you're the one who actually does it.

    But monk, it wasn't just a simple "oh he rubs me the wrong way" for people here. For about a solid year Ive been seeing almost nothing but horrible comments and tweets from Phil; did you know I actually watched "The indie game movie" thinking that it might make me feel sympathetic to him? He did nothing but prove he was quite possibly one of the most unlikable devs imaginable... especially for his words on his former fez-partner. During development of fez, during the movie and after the release he bitched and moaned endlessly. He insulted other devs, called his own fans ungrateful, he gave oh-so-insightful criticism such as "it sucks", made himself out to be gods gift to gaming, considered his game to be above so many others, saying baffling and downright hypocritical things about other games, reinforced the "asshole-indie" stereotype , and he cancelled his own creation because he was called out on his behavior in probably the most spectacular PR disaster in videogame history. Yet after all that he still sees himself as the victim and a martyr. I take it you didn't even read half of the thread, which is why I had to repeat many of the points. It wasn't a simple case of misinterpreting a few jokes, it was a chronic and endless torrent of terrible actions of Phil.

    How exactly is calling Fish out on his behavior "blind hate"? Why should I and others be "ashamed" for our opinions monk and how is it "fucking lazy"? How come if a discussion does not go your way you just accuse everyone of screaming and call it a circlejerk? How about I call you fucking lazy because you have contributed almost nothing to convince me of why I should respect this guy?

    A lot of the horrible tweets and comments have been taken entirely out of context just so people can fuel their furious hatred of him

    He tweeted once "Nintendo consoles are for babies and social retards" as an experiment to see if people would react, and they did, even though he explained that he didnt really think that was true in the tweet before. People just take his words out of context and make it out as if he is the worst human ever but a lot of the time they are overreacting

    Gee, public figures sure seem to have their "jokes" and "experiments" "misinterpreted" quite often. I think we should create a charity bike marathon to raise awareness. Participants will start at the finish line, naturally.

    Even if that was true, you have to admit it's sort of strange that one person could be "misinterpreted" so many times so badly.

    Besides it doesn't really make him less a dick if he turns around and says "oh man you all got mad at my joke"

    That whole thread is such an obvious troll that I'm surprised this many people actually think it's legit. I know you probably think it's something Phil would do but I disagree; his twitter is mainly just opinions or some insults, I'm pretty sure impersonation isn't his game.

    Oh yeah, he posted something to his twitter, which is now public again.

    Just saying it's kind of amazing to have Buckley comment on this.

    Like dude is hated for being a giant piece of shit but he keeps on trucking, so when he calls you a lil babby you know somethings up.

    Also read some posts from people who know Fish offline and apparently he's a huge wannabe hipster offline too that's really desperate to fit into places. From what I've read he's literally lived his life on that Bender quote "I'll make my own casino!" one, or whatever it was.

    Dudes honestly off his rocker nutty and I hope he gets the help he needs.

    Also, I didn't like Fez, I thought it was pretentious "deep" garbage and the like. The lack of challenge or goal was a huge turn off and in general I just found it boring and dull. That's the nice thing about sequels though. They're a chance to improve on things, and I did like the shifting mechanics of Fez even if Crush 3D and that flash game came before it, and if a sequel was made I'd hope he'd try to find a healthy balance between the no challenge slog of Fez and... make it kind of interesting for a change.

    Too bad we'll never know because he's a huge babby

    Well I've seen you say that a good deal of Fish's posts have been humor that was taken wrong.

    I know that you've already talked about the experiment one, which I can understand, though must also admit was in rather poor judgement in a kind of poking-the-hornet's-nest kind of way.

    Any other examples in which Fish has been widely misunderstood which you can quote and explain?

    I've never played Fez, heard little about it, and never followed Fish. Therefore my knowledge of him is limited to the recent shitstorm, and I'm genuinely curious to hear your side.

    What arguments? Fish has no arguments, he's just a cunt who insults the people who he then expects to buy his game.

    Phil has said tons of shitty stuff, insulted various parts of the gaming community and reacts to critism like an autistic sonic fanfic creator does. But because he made ONE crappy indie game a bunch of people are crying about how they lost a creative mind in the gaming community and that he was somehow reasonable to react that way to "haters :[[["
