Jokes aside, that's a pretty disgusting report. Was the reporter dumped by her boyfriend who played video games or something? Why so bitter? It's pointing that that everyone who plays a game an ugly, anti-social, scared of girls, never baths or shaves, virgin, mental case. It makes Fox news' "Games make you kill/rape people" look tame and easy going.

They apologized.

"And now it is time for a correction of our own account. Maybe you've seen our report about the Gamescom last week. In this report we generealised and exaggerated and if we hurt any feelings we're awfully sorry."

Already a thread about this somewhere I think(I could be wrong, think I saw it on here somewhere though) Anyway, yeah it was a pretty dumb report but at least it was worth a laugh

"luminous, pink-haired boy with the basecap" is now my favorite phrase.

That's fantastic isn't it? Reported on RTL.... who own the rights to the Alarm für Cobra 11 franchise. Which has made appearances on gaming consoles four times.

See, America isn't the only place with shitty, misinformed, and extremely biased news reporting.

E: Wow, just watched the whole video. What an incredibly shaming (and shameful), judgmental, and disgusting report. And fuck that cunt booth babe judging all these people who actually have real jobs in their real lives, instead of just standing around in almost no clothes, essentially whoring themselves out. Man, fuckin' people.

Germans judging and ridiculing an entire group of people for not living up to their physical standards? Never.

People who believe everything fox news says has a false sense of reality.

 Do I buy a razor or a video game? 


 
I found this particularly hilarious. Maybe this explains why Jeff has been looking at electric razors recently...

You know, they're right. Appearance is everything and we should strive to be stylish to try and pick up girls all the time. This is the only true pursuit in life.

You know, there's a bit of truth to that. Plus, many gamers are very rude (at least online) to people who don't "understand" their hobby.

I guess they were just trying to be humorous about it, while foxnews its just pure evil.
 
To be fair though cosplayers are the weirdest and most pointless thing ever, and some gamers are a bit on the withdrawn/no bathing/ social problems side, but generalizing is always a bad thing to do all the same.

Mine too...Mine too. I read your comment before even watching the video and once it got there I just shut it off, got my lawls out of it.

Its quite bad that they intentionally picked out a half dozen weird looking people out of the thousands that attended and passed it off as if these type of people are the majority. 
 
You could go into any hobbist event, like books,sports,movies,comics etc etc and auto shows and just about any event ever for anything and find several weird looking fanatics but the majority will just be normal working class people that have girlfriends and familys, who have jobs and are well "styled" as they kept saying. 
 
It kind of pisses me off that this sterotype still exists a little but what pisses me of more is when news channels like this try real hard to portray that every gaming fan is like this.

All stereotypes have some basis in truth, that doesn't mean you wallow in them and make an entire story out of them.  Journalistic integrity is supposed to mean something. 
 
I could care less about what immature kids do on the internet.  This is a news program featuring adults.

Godwin's law and delicious self-owning irony in one post. Good job, bro.
