He hasn't even been credited in any games!

Guitar Hero II

#3 Posted by chrismafuchris (1088 posts) -

Really? I seem to remember there being a debate early on if Ryan or other industry members should have a page, yet if he was credited in Guitar Hero, then that doesn't really line up.

#4 Posted by Hockeymask27 (3683 posts) -

ya because he needs a [page to be listed in credits of the gh2 page.

#5 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

Anybody in the special thanks for game credits gets a free pass.

Welcome to the world of the Giant Bomb staff-related wiki pages. Whoever authored them is probably on a watch list somewhere.

If you want to be that guy, then yes.

A lot of people have done the same. Hell, I've done it, though I've kept the page bare to a minimum beyond my credits on purpose because I don't want to turn it into some ridiculous vanity page.

I demand to know who you are.

I have to warn you as someone that cares about you. Calling this page out may result in some crazed GB members coming down on you. If you need a place to hide, I know a guy.

Hell, I'm not revealing that here. I've already had one psychotic internet stalker on these forums. I don't need to entice someone else with more bait.

Seriously, that stalker was an asshole.

you could have worse people to have as an internet adversary than HD, at least he was flavourful and appreciated a bit of fun in his own dark and twisted way.

No, the guy I'm thinking of was worse. A lot worse. Like, "send numerous harassing PMs and wall posts, and then make a stupid image macro with my face and plaster it all over the forums in a fit of account suicide" worse.

What's sadder, the fact that the page exists or that people care enough to complain about it existing?

Do you not see the incredible amount of ludicrous and sad irony in this?

No, because I'm credited in a couple of games and thus I fulfill the requirement to have a wiki page.

#30 Posted by heatDrive88 (2339 posts) -

@Hailinel: How can creating your own wiki page be anything but representing your self-described ridiculous vanity?

No, I've never worked on a video game before, and I have zero plans to, and I'm not going to be an asshole about this - I'm just going to be frank. If someone actually cared or even deemed your involvement about anything you ever worked on in a video game, and deemed it necessary to create a wiki page for you, they would have done it for you.

Otherwise, creating your own wiki page regardless of the fact that it "meets the requirements for creation"? Sorry duder, it's pretty lame and weaksauce.

Except that this is an incomplete wiki with a lot of missing Person pages. The requirements simply state that in order to be given a page in the wiki, a person must be credited in at least one game. I am credited in two games. If it's such an affront to your sensibilities that I create my own page before someone else does it for me, that's your problem, not mine.

#32 Posted by LordAndrew (14426 posts) -

@heatDrive88: There's nothing on his person page beyond what would be on any other person page. Just a short one-sentence blurb, the bare minimum that the system asks for. It's not a big fucking deal.

#33 Posted by heatDrive88 (2339 posts) -

@Hailinel: @LordAndrew: Alright then.

So I guess I'm the only person who thinks creating your own wiki page is really weird, let alone the denial that it has anything to do with your own vanity, regardless if it's "allowed".

If it had anything to do with vanity, I'd have done a lot more with it and would also be actively letting people know which page it is. Frankly, I don't really care that much about it. I just created it because it had a reason to be; nothing more, nothing less.

I like that a bunch of his purposeful mispronunciations are listed there.

Also, reading all these quotes, I remember a bunch of them, but it's so annoying not being able to recall the quick looks or other video features that they're from.

"That water effect sucks something furious.""

I remember laughing at that, but I don't remember the game..*sigh*

Nah, I totally see where you're coming from and I'm getting the same sorta cognitive dissonance vibe from it. Like it's not vain if you make a page dedicated to yourself, but it is if you actually fill that page out? That's just pure arbitrary nonsense right there.

Now, I certainly have nothing against people making their own pages. All the power to them and there's nothing wrong with a bit of vanity. People want to leave their mark on the world and that's great. I think playing it off as, "I am a robot. I did this because it is the logical thing to do. I am not vain. I am merely programmed to fill out TPS reports and submit them for approval. The fact that this TPS report is about me is purely coincidental," comes off as disingenuous. If that's truly the reason Hal did it, I feel kinda sorry for him; he should take more pride in himself and his accomplishments. Nothing wrong with patting yourself on the back for your contributions.

It's sad how much of a faux pas it is to be a bit vain when it comes to nerd culture. Like if you do, you're suddenly looked up as some Jersey Shore freak or something. Especially if you're a woman, but that's a rant for another time. Le sigh.

@chrismafuchris: Tell it to John T. Drake, son.

@Irvandus: Is the guy you know named Bo? If not, I don't wish to hide in him.

This reminds me that Vinny's first real game credit validating his page was a 2009 iOS game. Yet he's also credited in Mass Effect 1 (and 2) now?? I musta missed the news on that. O_o

To be honest, the chick looks the most ridiculous. Certainly that weird smile at the end.

Hrmm...so if we add in the weight of anime and then multiply it by the love of Soul Calibur IV....that means we get...

42?

That doesn't seem right. I'm going back to the drawing board.

He looks like a welder who happens to be a hummingbird enthusiast. Not all birds though, specifically hummingbirds.

Yeah, I did too. It was really easy, actually. Dude broke the number one rule of internet usage: keep user names distinct.

I like the tone of the thread title. "This guy" as if Ryan is some completely unimportant person on this website (I think he's the Janitor or something...). Seriously dude, if this is your biggest problem right now, you must be doing very well.
