Trivia

  • In 1995, Geoff Keighley recorded some voice lines for the game Rise of the Triad. (Source of information: http://twitter.com/geoffkeighley/statuses/1276611567)
  • He co-hosted the show G4TV.com with Tina Wood and Laura Foy from 2004 to 2005.
  • He appeared on Fox News to defend Mass Effect during the controversy over the sex scene that can be found in the game.
  • Was issued a public apology by then head of GT Interactive Ron Chaimowitz, publisher of Blood II, for the unauthorized inclusion of a "debits" section of the credits that targeted people and organizations that developer Monolith held a grudge against. Geoff Keighley, then working as a freelance game journalist, was the only person listed by name for his "transparently-beholden rants, while not even trying to appear neutral or evenhanded, kept us mildly amused. Very mildly." Chaimowitz offered an immediate patch, and promised that the second run of the software would have the "debits" section removed from the credits.
  • As a direct result, on the Bonus Round airing on August 28, 2011, he offered up Blood II as his least favorite game of all time.
  • His favorite games of all time were Monkey Island 2 and Day of the Tentacle, although he loves many of the old adventure games put out in the heyday of Sierra and LucasArts. He credits them as the games that inspired him to want to be a part of the industry.
  • His favorite developer is Valve, although he admits he may be biased due to his close ties with the developer, and his work on "The Final Hours of Portal 2."
  • Considers Game Informer's Andy McNamara as the game journalist he most respects in the industry.
