He said he would commit suicide over Fez if it didn't do well.

Oh, I don't recall correctly and thought he told about suicide in that hotel too :).
Anyways, in that movie he seems to be very selfish and megalomaniac person (and from what I can read in this thread, also in a real life) and in my opinion that's the reason.

I would hope you're just misquoting stuff you've seen other people write. If you did actually watch this yourself then I'm not sure what to say as that is very far from what he said.

He said that PCs were for spreadsheets to justify not porting Fez to PC, but then he apparently changed his mind and Fez is as of a month or two ago. I think he's a good guy though; like geez, who cares if he didn't want to go through the long effort of porting his game?

You're confused about what whining is. Whining is "a feeble, peevish complaint" or "To complain or protest in a childish fashion." That doesn't describe "Except that you were," but it does describe "Because people are stupid whiny bitches." It describes it exactly.

Ooooh, let's try to get nit-picky!

I'm not being childish, feeble, or peevish. I'm making a statement (feel free to consult your dictionary again) about the behavior of others, this thread having plenty of examples of said behavior.

Hahahaha. A statement is a required part of whining. There's no contradiction. So silly to act as if a statement is somehow opposite to whining. Making a general statement about people being "stupid whiny bitches" is the exact essence of whining, which makes my claim on the opposite side of the spectrum from nitpicking.

Whining = Statement, statement =/= whining.

Also, we're most certainly getting nit-picky with words!

Stupid, "annoying or irritating; troublesome."

Whiny, "a feeble, peevish complaint."

Bitches, "a malicious, unpleasant, selfish person."

There's nothing childish about using words, as you're so anxious to fancy yourself a master of words. Unless of course, that would make us both childish... Going by your reasoning, it would definitely appear that we are both whining and being childish.

You're making several weird arguments for me, which I didn't make and wouldn't make. I'm not eager to argue with you about things we're not even disagreeing about, so I don't have much (at least not specifically) to say to your last post.

(A quick response to the smallest of these straw-man arguments: even though my degree says I'm a master of words, I would never claim to be that. I have a lot to learn. I do, however, have a strong enough understanding of the basics to discuss what we're discussing.)

The argument you made is that, "except you were (whining)" which is not a the case. I made a statement, which you go on to say is still whining. Granted, you need a statement to whine. So yes, whining is equal to a statement, but a statement is not equal to whining. You continue to press that my saying "stupid whiny bitches" is the exact essence of whining ("childish, feeble, or peevish").

So, we can assume you find usage of the words "stupid whiny bitches" to be "childish, feeble, or peevish" which is absolutely silly. This is most likely due to a knee-jerk reaction to "bad words" and some ill-placed sense of self-righteousness.

Therefore, my statement was just that, a statement. I was not whining. I was using words to form a sentence, a sentence to form a statement. Maybe you find my choice of words to be a problem, but your opinion on any given word doesn't affect the validity of my point.

Two reasons for me:

-he stated that Fez would never be released on PC while it actually did later. This is great for PC players, but before, he kept on criticizing PC really badly for a long time, and actually release FEZ on computer for money, and not to please the player.

-then, there's the fact that he's such an a**. Like, when asked about the state of japanese games, he answered "Your games sucks". Some japaneses games sucks, but some are pretty good (just as some western games sucks while some others are good). You can't be more dumb than he is.

There are a multitude of other reason, but these two are enough for me the hate this guy.

Actually, I didn't complain about him CRITICIZING, but about him being so hypocritical. I don't hate him over the fact that he states he doesn't like PC and PC gamers. However, in the first hand he says he hate it and tell everyone he'll never release his game on it. Then on the second hand he releases his game on PC and clearly says "Hello guys, I still hate you and I don't care about you, but I want money. So buy my game. And those guys who will hack my game, well, fuck you" The japanese thing is just racism. I mean, how can you plainly tell "Japaneses games are bad" ? It's like saying "Hey, Americans are all stupid egoistic racists". It exists, but you can't make a generality out of some people, that's absolutely dumb. Japanese games may not be to your liking, some might objectively sucks, but you can't say that the japanese games in general sucks.

the japanese thing was NOT racism. that was just the interwebs being tarded.

So he dislikes modern japanese games. Didn't say jack all about japan, products of japan, japanese culture or japanese people. At least read the sources before bashing a guy for 5th hand interpretations of what he said.

(this is like that adam livene thing(whatever name is, the rat tattoo guy from the voice who's in love with cowboy hat guy))


Try substituting any other type of game in there and see if you feel the same way.
Its like saying "english humor sucks"
you know the sort I mean. The sort of jokes that are referred to as English jokes are very distinctive.
Now England is white....still racist? Of course not, because it isn't a racist sentence to begin with. It says nothing about england, products of england or the people of england. It doesn't even say anything concrete about their jokes, only opinion(which as the norm on the internet uses the sentence structure of a fact and tends towards generalization and/or exaggeration).

tldr; It was a specific type of game he dismissed not the people who made it or their country.

and? its not like pc users never shit on consoles. nobody generally hates them for it even when they turn out to also secretly own an xbox. what pcs can't take what they say back at them? and for his reasons changing his mind? money. at least he was honest.

Those "i still hate you but you're throwing money at me anyway so suck it" comments were reactions to being pestered about that quote so he decided to have fun with the trolls. Redit badgered him into that quote. He likes trolling people who hate him(and several who don't)


People hate him because he does things like this when he feels attacked. He just feeds them for fun. (which is kinda funny for a boycott. Its a good example of why those things never work, like the people who say they'll boycott a game for on disk dlc and preorder it anyway. gamers have poor impulse control but like to talk big on the internet so that always happens)

So, I've checked it out. I've effectively taken out of context the quote (I've never really been concern with Phil Fish, I only remembered things I read in article or his twitter a long time ago) and calling it racism was a bit of an over-reaction. My bad about that. But it's still not right, it's still pretty rude, wrong and misplaced. You can't just go and tell someone you just met "the games you make are bad". And once more I'll say this, you can't say that ALL japaneses games are bad, that's stupid. He didn't say he doesn't like modern japanese games, he clearly affirmed modern japanese games sucks. If you ignore all the eroges, almost all of them are decent at least, and some are better in their genre than western games (Shoot'em'up, Fighting Games,...) or equivalent to western games (Beat'em'all, Puzzle games,...).

For the PC thing, I shall repeat myself once again: It's not about him criticizing the PC, it's about him saying he won't port the game while insulting us, then saying "it's okay, I'll release it, but for the money". It's not obviously a reason to hate him, but don't expect us to like you or spend money for you if you're insulting us. Even more so when your game is so mitigated between good and bad.

and?

just because others don't mind doesn't mean you're actually producing anything worth getting paid for or that he doesn't have far more rights to any ad $ generated by your lp than you do.

they are at absolute best unlicensed derivative work based on a copyrighted item and fish was completely within its rights to do this. It should never have been possible to make $ off an lp in the first place. And imo they fall a good deal short of even getting that much credit. its just a recording of fish's work with a layer of commentary and pointless jabber to fill air.

sports commentators get permission and pay a fee for the right to broadcast games before they're allowed to make money off it. Movie commentary isn't allowed to be shown for profit any more than a copy of the movie is. ect.
fish isn't charging them. they just won't be getting any $ from youtube ads is all.
fish isn't stopping anybody from making videos, nor uploading videos, he's taking nothing down. he isn't going after anybody. you're completely free to do a lp. ...you just won't be seeing $ off basically an uncut recording of fish's IP is all. And its basically just lps they're going after.

I believe the reason is he has said bad things about both PC games and Japanese games in the lead up to Fez. As well there is a quote from him saying there wouldn't be a PC version of FEZ because it wasn't meant for PCs. Also he does seem like a douche on Indie Game the movie. Then again I thought most of the people in that movie came out looking like people I would never want to interact with in real life.

I dont care about all of the PC's are for worksheets bullshit, I understand why some people see it that way.

My biggest issue with him is that he is rude. It's fine to speak your mind, but you dont have to go out of your way to offend people to get people talking about you. If your opinion is well thought out and makes sense, people will listen.
