I just want to quickly point out that at this point there is no evidence that the guy has received death threats (though I imagine now he's been exposed as a fraud, he will probably start receiving them...).Xxxusernametakenxxx said:It's very possible but it's just as possible people thought he worked at EA and sent those threats. Which you obviously don't seem to have an issue with.Iselin said:Do you think it might be possible that if he lied about where he works he might also have lied about receiving death threats? Maybe?Xxxusernametakenxxx said:So people making death threats to a person who they thought was an EA employee is ok if that person turns out to not be an employee of EA? Hey you justify it anyway you want I guess.Iselin said:Nice find! Quote form the article:SBFord said:Interesting that this whole kerfuffle about death threats may be a hoax?
https://kotaku.com/the-curious-case-of-the-ea-game-dev-who-said-he-receive-1820474458I’ve become convinced that he does not actually work for EA. In fact, since I sent him several messages yesterday and this morning, he has changed his Twitter profile to remove all mentions of EA.
So in fact just someone acting as an agent provocateur in an attempt to discredit those who are complaining.
Hmm... that tactic sounds oddly familiar
Talk about a desperate tactic.
MMORPGs are my favourite genre of games. No other genre I have ever played has come close to the enjoyment I experienced in both SWG and LotRO. So, whilst I can still get enjoyment from single player games and I still game 2 or 3 nights a week, that enjoyment never reaches the heights experienced playing MMORPGs.nariusseldon said:You just said "I have decades worth of AAA to play through". So why even bother to struggle finding a good game in a niche genre like MMO?cameltosis said:I have plenty of games to play and I'm not fussy on the age of the game either, so I have decades worth of AAA to play through. Currently going through FF9 again, before that I went through GTA5 again, before that Mad Max. I don't struggle to find games to play.
However, I struggle to find MMOs worth playing. I don't like shooters as a general rule and I didn't like the Halo games, so Bungie were always going to struggle to attract me to Destiny and Destiny 2.
Just enjoy the decades worth of AAA (despite you do not like Destiny, which of course is your right and i totally respect that), and if a good (to you) MMO comes along, enjoy. If not, i doubt you need to even bother to notice.
