@jonnyboy: Let me throw a hypothetical at you let's say Phil really liked kicking puppies in his free time? Should we just ignore it because he made a great game, are you saying that as long as the art is great why should we care what kind of person making it?
Kicking puppies is a criminal and immoral act, Fish is a arse, but he's a law abiding arse.
I'll be the first to admit Fish can be an arsehole, but people really have to separate the art from the artist, whatever you think of Fish, Fez showed he was passionate about what he does and he was good at it. You know who else is an arsehole? Axl Rose. But fuck if he wasn't one of the greatest vocalists of all time.
