I've been pretty vocal in my dislike for Phil Fish. I liked FEZ, but I found it pretty difficult to appreciate a game made by someone who was so transparently dickish, and being painted as such an asshole by news outlets and consumers alike. This video is a pretty good breakdown of Phils entire career, how both he and his game gained attention and popularity, and how his management of this newfound attention was poor, but not so poor that he deserved the endless hatred and vitriol online. It's definitely worth a watch as, beyond Phil Fish, it's a pretty good analysis of internet behavior and psychology in general:
After watching this video I feel like kinda an asshole. I mean, I don't know if I forgive the guy for his monumental PR fuckups, his general arrogance, and the way he handled his "fame", but it also makes me feel pretty guilty for contributing to this continuously rolling snowball of hatred.
I kinda just feel sad that the dude isn't making games any more :(
Take a look!
