So, you know Adam Sessler, host of G4TV's X-Play? Yeah, he pretty much showed how amazing he is yet again, as if his rally against bigots on Xbox Live and his complete ownage of Final Fantasy fanboys wasn't enough. Watch this video in response to the hate mail they received from SONY FANBOYS (not 360 fanboys, PS3 fanboys) accusing them of being biased in their 5/5 review of Killzone 2 for the PS3.



He comes vicious at both 360 fanboys claiming Gears of War 2 is better because IGN gave it .1 point higher than Killzone 2, and PS3 fanboys who claim they weren't serious because they sounded upset that it was a good game.

I for one applaud Adam for saying what needs to be said in this day of console fanboyism on the internet. Bravo, good sir, bravo.

I love Sessler, I really miss watching X-Play, I should look up some of there newer reviews on take a look at them. I second giving him praise for addressing how stupid some of these console fanboys can be, they need to just calm down an accept that good games can be on systems other than the ones they like...
 
That was great! LOL.
 
That WAS great. Lulz was had, and lots of it!
 
Nasty, sounds like a forum best avoided!

The problem is that people misinterpret G4's scoring system. A 5/5 doesn't mean a perfect game, it just means a top tier one. Just look at how many 5/5's they hand out regularly. Then sites like metacritic lump them in with sites like IGN and people assume it means G4 gave it a 10/10 because other scores like IGN are 9.4 or whatever. Even a 3/5 means something different than say a 6.0/10.

So of course people jump on that and miss the point. That's why 1up's letter scoring system worked so well. Few people tried to compare an A with a 9.0/10 or a 4 1/2 out of 5.
 
Amazing I have to agree that this console fanboy stuff is just out of hand. The reason I come to sites like this and listen to podcasts like NooBTooB is to just talk with people who love games.
 
Sessler has nothing on navgtr.
