    I know that something like the VGX is not relevant at any rate and it was boring and shit but the butthurt generated was amazing, short story is Dorito Pope(Geoff Keighley) in his quest to legitimate his VGX Awards Ceremony decides that the best thing to do is get Joel McHale to​
    co-host the stream with him, which is funny because you are hiring a fucking douchebag who is basically the nemesis of every fedora wearing neckbeard faggot to which the show is targeted.​
    The result? basically everyone is butthurt because of his behavior and that he showed a lack of disrespect to the hard working members of the video game industry and shit.​
    This #gamerandproud people think that they should be reminded every 5 minutes about how awesome and special they are just because they like to play video games, when the reality is that everyone can play video games and everyone can get as good as they are and for proof of that there are all those twitch channels populated with attention whores with big boobs who have the same l33t skills as those proud geek members of the "gaming community".​
    Do really this thing known as "gamer community" really exists? or the people who claim to belong to such group are the same autists, bronies, sonics and deviantards, etc people get trolled everyday because they never learned to laugh at themselves and apparently everything that offends them should be a crime punishable with death.​
    TL;DR some unfunny faggot from Hollywood reminded the autist nerds they're still losers and got butthurt for it, I mean just look at the comment section of sites like this one: http://n4g.com/news/1408872/why-joel-mchale-hosting-vgx-2013-was-a-tragedy

    To me "gamers" were never more than a consumer demographic. I'll never fully understand why people create entire cultures out of their hobbies but I was fortunate enough to have been born with a personality and identity so I never felt the need to create one. As far as stereotypes are concerned, gamers are geeks. They tend to have multiple interest that spans across shit like anime, movies, books, tabletop games and a bunch of other overarching and interchangeable mediums. I, too, am a geek. I'm neither proud nor ashamed of this. It's simply a fact. It's also self-evident.

    That aside, we've got a system in place where people are segregated into single-issue groups that are constantly pitted against one another. It's only natural that such an environment breeds superiority complexes and pointless conflict.

    I like to think the existence of the Big Bang Theory has something to do with it.

    Was Mchale even funny at all?

    Edit: watched the vid. He had a couple good ones. Overall the whole thing came off as a really poorly put together attempt to attract an audience outside of dorkville.

    They were mindless zombies that sat still and be good little boys and girls like in a movie theater.

    Watching that made me wish to slowly shave off their skins with a cheese grater.

    The only other time I have seen him live host anything, it was some award show thing, and it went about as well. I think he just suck without a team of writers to parrot for.
    His bit about the pill haze and his wife waking him up is probably partially true, he does look pretty haggard.

    They are the black Jackass crew. Probably to court the 'urban' market.

    He missed a shit ton of jokey stuff he could have throw in though. Anyone of his 'what game is this' things for example: when they tell him, something like "oh, I don't even play video games, I'm just here for the chicks" *cheezy ass thumbs up to the camera*
    Basically, he just comes off as uncommitted to the job he was hired for. I would be pissed to if I attended/watched something expecting it to be good, and got this.
    This is perhaps too harsh, as I didn't watch the whole thing, and probably never will. For all I really know, all the funny shit wasn't show in the clip.

    The really one to blame is the dorito pope I mean he is the one in charge of the whole production, his goal was to make "The Oscar of Video Games" and instead he produced this thing that looks like a regular monday to friday show.
