He just seems a bit stupid to me. He's obviously clueless, is loyal to some guys who say some dumb shit and he's protecting them without realizing hes dragging himself into this cesspit as well.

He should grow a spine, or perhaps educate himself. Guys who get on the good side of fuckers like David Duke, abandon those ASAP. But this guy decides not to pick a side, which is the dumbest move you can do especially if you're somewhat of a public figure. Its his living, so I understand he's afraid to cut ties with some people here and there, but still, you should have some dignity. And people will generally appreciate it when you are outspoken. He would've been bigger if he didn't push himself into this cowardice moderate position.
Yes he's incredibly stupid and uninformed and spineless. His stupidity doesn't excuse anything though, not saying you are just adding to your post.

What is the big problem here? From what it looks like, he's just attending, not actually hosting or speaking.

Fuck everyone, right?!
Not everyone chooses to associate with known alt-righters, no.
maybe i'd understand this thread if he was hosting or anything but he is just attending. i bet there's a lot worse in that crowd. he is just an idiot with bad opinions.
He was invited to the show in spite of his views being clearly known to anyone paying attention.
I've read the entire thread and I haven't seen anything specific.
I would suggest rewatching the video linked in the OP and searching the forum for a certain topic pertaining to Boogie and the Holocaust. If you still don't see any issues I would suggest having your eyes checked.

His opinions tend to lean toward the Alt right. I'm sure he was invited. It's not hard to not invite problematic people to an event. Especially those with a platform. Not to mention the host of the show pretty much openly embracing him.

Like I said before. This industry uses diversity and inclusiveness like a fucking buzzword, but constantly put their priorities in favor of people like Boogie, PDP and others. This industry refuses to take out it's own trash and in many cases defends said trash.

I used to watch some of this guy's videos in the past, and realised he's a really dumb, ignorant person and his opinions are badly motivated and kind of blowing where the wind seems to go.
His desire to please everyone is just kind of sad. It could be a fear of rejection or something.

I don't like him, but I really don't think he has a lot of influence, I would just ignore him and not let it ruin a hopefully fun show. :)

This thread turned to fuck Cory Barlog huh? You know the man probably is unaware of many of the things this guy because of how hard he worked on the game. If you really think that Cory somehow sides with all the things that guy said you are absolutely wrong and I can’t believe people can jump to that conclusion so fast.

Said it in the Game awards thread but Geoff Keighley very clearly does not care about the harm elevating these shitbags who cause damage to marginalized groups does, and thus must in some way has to agree with their ideology.

The fact that he was completely silent after each "trending gamer" award speaks volumes. He doesn't care that they are problematic figures when he stands from his extremely privileged position. He doesn't care that publicly associating with them and handing them awards supports white supremacy. He doesn't care that his latest award winner is a misogynist.

He doesn't care about marginalized groups. Period.
Pretty much like I don’t hate Geoff. But he’s a business man first and foremost. There’s nothing wrong with that. But I also don’t buy any of the shit he says because he has zero integrity and does what he needs to do to make money and further himself. There was a passionate speech about Konami but nothing about any of the issues that happen in the gaming realm directly related to the types of people you do business with. So I respect Geoff’s hustle but I don’t respect him.

The guy really sucks

but hats off to him, he actually is losing a ton of weight. Maybe now that he's not fat, he'll "both sides" fat shaming, though.
No making fun of fat people was the one thing that consistently triggered him and then it was no fun allowed jpeg

Anyway I wish my favorite personalities got a spot like Super Bunny Hop but ya know

I just found it, it's not as bad as I remembered:

"I agree entirely. Same sex marriage is a human right and everyone deserves a chance at love. Taking an extra five years to keep changing minds and saving lives might be worth it tho. Just my opinion. Some people died to get it done faster. You ok with that? I am not. "
that's a tweet of him replying to the backlash after he said gay people should've waited 10-20 years or so to get married because homophones might have calmed down by then

Danny continues to fraternize with Boogie. His response to me on Patreon was complete fucking bullshit. He said he needs to follow Boogie for “professional and journalistic responsibility.” Yeah if the likes of Jason Schreier and Patrick Klepek don’t see the journalistic responsibility to follow a holocaust sympathizer, then a fucking documentary maker sure as shit doesn’t either. Danny can go fuck himself too honestly.
Danny O'Dwyer also somehow congratulated that tool who started up The Escapist with a bunch of Gamergate dog-whistling. O'Dwyer seems pretty ignorant and naive, as also seen in his initial dislike for Anita Sarkeesian (until he somehow came around instead of going full gamergate misogynist).

His documentaries are also just industry hype pieces more than anything.

The dude is a fence sitter for sure but didn't he win some award at the show last year?

why are people surprised that he's being invited back?

Someone popular in gaming circles invited to a big gaming event. I'm shocked...

This forum is the only place that doesn't like Boogie. Hey, he's also meeting up with Cory Barlog too. Are we gonna attack Cory like you're criticizing Geoff
I don't know why you even try. The emulation of twitch chats that this forum manages to do sometimes are pretty impressive.

Separate from his terrible politics, I have to say I'm really happy for him having lost the weight he has. That is a real struggle. I've gone through similar though no where near as drastic transitions.

The funny thing is that fat shaming is the only place where he seems to draw the line.

Maybe he will go on stage and give another sob story.
Not to so easy to hang in the middle when its an issue that actually effects him.

He should think about the suffering the people he both sides feel about all the shit they go through. They could fill rivers with the tears of what they've suffered through in their lives as minorities or LGBT.

I don’t understand, I don’t follow this guy but if he is so bad why people that, dare I say, I consider respectable like Geoff and Cory are cheering him? Is he that famous?

Disgusting. People like him are why I'm no longer going to watch these shows. Geoff sadly never learns.

You're demanding others denounce somebody because they refused to denounce another group. As far as I know, the EZA guys hold O'Dwyer in high esteem. Should they be dropped because they're not dropping him? Should any outlet that decides to cover GoW be dropped? What exactly is the line in this hardcore zero tolerance policy you've adopted?
It's not hard to denounce shitty people.

I denounce Boogie, I will not associate with him on any professional or individual level, his views are harmful and ignorant and do not reflect my own.

That was not difficult.
What is the big problem here? From what it looks like, he's just attending, not actually hosting or speaking.
He was given sanction to attend the event in the form of an official invitation from the creator of the event, meaning Geoff Keighly thought it wise to reach out and make sure he was able to come despite Boogie's harmful views against women, gay marriage, etc.

Welp, I guess it's called the Game Awards appropriately. Boogie represents a shitty side to gaming culture that I hope one day passes.

Screw that fucking melon, and the choice to fly him in for the awards is a boneheaded decision

Why would you think Keighly cares about minorities? He's a corporate robot man doing much more important things like making the Oscars for nerds. If you have to have a few dirt bags involved to shore up its viewership, so be it.

Being embraced by the host and creator of the show and like I said. I'm sure he was invited. Boogie is a very public figure with shitty fucking views. And things like this at the very least shows the Geoff is ok with ignoring that just for viewership numbers.

Wait what's up with Danny O'Dwyer?
Buddies with Boogie. I can't stand people who try to act progressive then chum it up with pieces of shit.

Where were you when the cyberpunk twitter said stuff much worse?
Bizarre whataboutism, but I've posted numerous times (as recent as today) about cancelling my GOG account and opting not to purchase anymore CDPR games.

Any other unrelated assholes you want to bring up?

yes because fat jokes are the same as racism, sexism and homophobia, boogie.

the game awards is (excuse my language) nothing more than rich people jerking each other off about how awesome they are while not really praising the hard work of the devs who work overtime to create amazing games.
seriously, this

I'm blown away that an awards show for games has absolutely no categories for outstanding game systems design, gameplay engineering, etc. It's all about favorites within genres, narratives, and production values.

Behind you.
Doesn't Cory have an account here?

It's one thing if all he knows of Boogie is his gaming work, but its another entirely if he knows of Boogie's terrible hot takes and still chooses to be chummy with the dude.
