Gabe is still badass regardless.
Hahaha, good on ya Gabe.
OH GOD HIT THE FUCKING DECK
Suddenly Gabe Newell is now the worst person in the world and everything made by Valve is terrible!
I'm loving these reactions.
Suddenly, the hate for MLP evaporates on FP as their only idol is revealed to be a brony.
Shitstorm incoming captain
90% chance it's a joke, but those YT comments are worth it.
I think it's quite nice that he can say "this entertains me, so I watch it" regardless of potential stigma. Even if a show could somehow be proven to be objectively bad, A) that's still a badass dude, B) that's still a badass beard, and C) that's still a badass dude with a badass beard that makes badass games.
Even if he does what's it really matter? He kept that shit to himself and doesn't go all brony on everybody. And after all he has made such great games that we have all probably sunk an embarrassing amount of time into, that if he wants to watch a show about ponies, he can go right ahead.
Oh jesus I can't wait for Red Scout? to see this
Oh god, the amount of butt-hurt in the youtube comment section is hysterical.
Pretty sure a businessman like Newell wouldn't watch MLP like a real enthusiastic "Brony" (who would even have finished all the seasons?) and it's probably just a joke.
Cool by me as long as he's not one of those idiots who posts about it all over the internet and "clops" to it all day
I'm okay with this
I'm sure he's trolling. He probably knows a lot about MLP though from the Steam user network/emails requesting ponies in TF2.
This won't affect me at all.
He was probably joking. Either way it doesn't really affect anything.
how the mighty have fallen
One of the TF2 bot names is "Derpy Hooves" so it was pretty much guaranteed that at least one of the Valve staff watches the show. Pretty sure that Robin said he liked them too.
I'm not surprised nor does this change my opinion of Gabe. But watching the fireworks in the comments section is worthy of me making some popcorn.
If anything Gabe has serious guts to admit it.
He knows how popular he is, and how his fans would react, but he did it anyways.
What a hero.
I bet someone bribed him a hat or money to watch the show.
Bah, he still makes the best games I've ever played. This doesn't bother me much.
Sure is denial in here
I shouldn't be a such big deal anyway, it's just a show, entertainment. It still baffles me how a show about cute technicolour ponies can generate so much hate.~Myst[/quote posted:
The show isn't the problem, it's the mass retarded audience it generated. The show is funny sure, but it's nothing special and is just a cartoon. It doesn't deserve a lot of the praise it gets.
