Right, Joel McHale mocked THE VERY THINGS PEOPLE ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT on ResetEra, but those some people seem to hate Joel McHale for doing so.People genuinely skipping the show because of this? The fuck outta here, you never were going to watch anyway.
The guy was hilarious and rightly called Geoff out on all his shit last time around. Completely disrespected the buttkissing, marketing and championing of advertisements.
You guys should be thanking this guy for paving a way for a new and better format.
Exactly mate. Great work not taking yourself and the show so seriously Geoff. It's gaming it should be fun. You deliver a serious show of high quality GK, let Joel loose to counter balance that.
"We've got World Premiere videos every fifteen minutes, breaking news, exclusive demos, and many other phrases that basically mean 'Video Game Commercials.""
He was disrespectful to the glorified add reel. An unforgivable gamer sin.
I've already muted the game awards. It's so self-aggrandizing and Geoff is so insincerely self-promoting. Joel was basically saying "They're just video games. Let's have fun. You're pontificating like Caesar marching on Rome."
He comes across as a genuine sweetheart in interviews and such. I think the people who are shitting on him are just taking their hobby way too seriously.
Why is it embarrassing?
This was perfectly captured in that moment where McHale asked him what his favourite was, and he couldn't even do that. "They're all great!" Like, have an opinion. Be human, not a personified billboard tiptoeing around everything.
Lol I’m sure part of him getting the contracts and everyone to work together on this event and events prior involves him being able to say and not say certain things. Joel isn’t involved in any of that so of course he doesn’t care.
