Phil doesn't deserve the treatment he gets. He's opinionated and blunt, that doesn't mean he needs to be called an asshole/hipster/f*g/tosspot/whatever every single day, and especially not by the gaming press.
But he is all those things. He treats his customers like shit, and he's smug about it. I remember when he said Fez was never gonna be on PC, then he released it on Steam and talked down to everyone that reminded him of that little comment. He's like a teenager still. Also I hate his stupid sideburns
