Not REALLY appreciating the slam on Southerners.

I mean, you guys are awesome, and keep doing your thing... but... just saying.

Wait, what? I guess I qualify as "jrpg people" and never felt "slammed". It's just no one on the staff is into that genre.

Except for Jeff saying Persona 4 is one of the best games ever made.

Tough titties. They make fun of everyone that's not them in every way and think anything they don't like is dumb. Just because it targets you for once doesn't mean a thing.

When did they slam on Southerners? I must have missed that...

Also speaking as a JRPG person (slightly relapsed), I found Persona 4 to be one of the best games ever made....

Brad is southern. I am from Scotland/UK they make fun of the British all the time I don't "get my knickers in a bunch" about it.

Also saying your not doing something then adding "but" is an indication you're going to do what you said you were not going to do.

Brad's a southern man, and they were pretty clearly at pains not to cause any offence there.

Also I'm English, so you can't even begin to understand how we feel.

You would have had a point if you were a Southern Canadian Anime Fan.

How 'bout a southern fan of anime and JRPG's that also dislikes football and doesn't care much for cars?

People from the south who are stereotypical "southern" are honestly few and far between. Some states/cities are more susceptible to "southerners" but it's definitely the "loud minority" that gets the most attention and bring these stereotypes out. As with any group of people...

I'm from the south and I wasn't offended at all, it was just gentle ribbing. If it helps, when Vinny said that southerners were kind of slow (he meant it in jest) I said to myself, "I don't know Vinny, I've seen you play games. You're pretty slow as well."

What really happened has no impact on how funny it looks from the outside, and funny it looked. :D

And besides, I'm pretty sure he was talking about the cadence of speech, not intelligence. I'm not sure how that could even be construed as negative.

Let's never forget that Brad has the highest and lowest voice of the Bombsquad. Sorry, California, those dulcetones are only produced in Cacklacky.
