So I have to say Geoff is ruthless when it comes to those interviews he really get deep in some questions that I feel those developers or the big guys like Jack Tretton and Reggie are like fuck! But I have to say they take it very well and just move on.
Geoff Keighley Interviews
I think he asks good questions while respecting the interviewee. I never feel like he's grilling them FOX news style.
I don't get people who say he's an asshole. People watch too many Diane Sawyer or E! interviews where they just patronize interviewees.
Sometimes he'll say something or ask a question that doesn't make a whole lot of sense but that's usually pretty rare I think. Overall I just have to thank Geoff Keighley and all of GameTrailers for the E3 coverage and the exclusive demos in between press conferences/media briefings. It was pretty awesome.
@ChickenPants said:... Also, trying to catch Cliffy B out on a GoW multiplatform hint.
Which was stupid because I'm sure Young Clifford was referring to the PC version of Gears.
Yeah I wish... We're all pirates in his eyes.
I like that he asks "tough" questions but the guy really annoys me. Something about him is so unlikable, he is just so phony.I think he comes across as genuine as he can possibly be given the nature of the role he inhabits. GB Jeff has said that Keighley's completely straight-up and knows his stuff on numerous occasions.
I find it wierd that people are complaining that he not likeable or a douche or whatever... A good interviewer's intention shouldn't be to be likeable, they should aspire to ask good questions and get the best interview possible - I think Geoff succeeds in that.
I think he does a good job of calling execs out when they say something in wishy-washy corporate speak or when they contradict themselves on previous statements. He's has a good way of asking the questions about things you can tell the interviewee is intentionally leaving out.
