did the hate come solely from his game, though? it seemed to come more from the insulting things he's had to say, whether IRL or via social media sites.

i do agree with the 'don't dish it if you can't take it' sentiment. you get what you give, after all.

After all the death threats and hate mail over the years (harassing to release the game), I'd be a little grumpy, too.

it's one thing to be 'a little grumpy'. it's another to say horrible things about other people and/or products, then cry foul when your paying fanbase (most of which who wind up enjoying some of the things you've insulted) gets on your case about it. it's a situation tailor-made for the world's smallest violin. perhaps an entire 'world's smallest orchestra'.

I think the issue is that Phil Fish made the same stupid mistake about the people insulting him, and fails at understanding the internet.

Is it really a big deal that someone said horrible things about a product? A person, sure, but I disagree with this section of the reply.

If people worked on that product very hard and all you have to say about it is "it sucks", I consider that to be quite rude too.

And also the fact that he doesn't know how to handle these insults. Throwing tantrums is not the way to handle these things. It only fuels the fire.

Some people just don't understand the concept of ignoring people.

Yes, I'm aware he is a little cocky, Shingi. Obviously he has some sort of psychological problems and can't handle small things even when it's mostly his fault.

But that wasn't my point.

Let's see...dev asks him a question. He responds with "well blah just sucks". Everyone gets mad at him for being rude. He responds not with an apology, but with a "You are the ones at fault because you misunderstood me".

What exactly am I missing here Chrono?

Unless I'm missing something here (and feel free to prove me wrong), but he wasn't exactly a game industry celebrity until the final months upon release of Fez. The death threats were coming long before his 2012 outburst and that's where I'm coming from.

But taking one guy's opinion seriously on anything isn't necessarily, well, smart.

Death threats are a little extreme, but for the most part can be shrugged off since most of them are from idiot fanboys. My suggestion is if you're receiving a lot of negative attention on Twitter, either ignore it or change the settings to block them (if you can that is).

Well, the other problem is, like I mentioned in previous posts, he took certain responses too seriously as well.

Like I mentioned in my previous post, he may suffer from some sort of mental illness or he may not know how to handle it.

Well perhaps a break from the internet will help him sort out his problems. I will admit that both sides are at fault in this case.

He seems like a not-so-nice guy and tbh Fez wasnt that great.

C'ya Phil. You won't be missed.

I wish there was a way to know you are in the good ole days before you actually leave them.

Gotta have thick skin to be in the game business. I think the guy from Gametrailers, like most 'professional game journalists,' is a complete and total ducky who does nothing good for this industry and is only there to suck off MS. The sooner people wake up and chase pieces of scum like him from gaming, the better. That out of the way, I think Phil Fish lost sight of what gaming is about. It's for the fans, the people who will put money in his pocket by buying his games. A lot of people enjoyed Fez and I think a lot more would've enjoyed the sequel but clearly this wasn't the industry for Fish to be working in.

The things is, if Phil Fish was actually...good at giving people the finger on Twitter like say, Hideki Kamiya, I'd actually respect him. But he's just...not very good at that and clearly fails to realize that quoting Futurama doesn't make you a clever person. It's kinda like rappers, if you're gonna be an ***hole, be clever and funny about it.

Good riddance. Maybe the spotlight can shine on someone who deserves it. Classless pile of garbage and I hope karma keeps kicking him down. Also his game was ok, but nothing phenomal, so his inflated head seems massively unwarrented. Sorry if I don't feel bad for the people who wanted to support this jerks sequel.

Gotta catch them... eh, nevermind.

If I had a nickle for every jerk that has gotten money they didn't deserve, I'd be rich. I don't think I could live off your philosophy of refusing to give money to someone just because I thought they were a jerk...especially since more than half of those jerks are in government...

Personally all I can say is LOL. I can't feel sorry for the guy he forgot the number one rule of the internet which is to never feed the trolls, but his ego is so massive that he actually argues and cares about what all these trolls are saying. If you can't handle trolls, clearly the online world is not a place for you.
