Here's Tommy Tallarico's views on gaming fanatics during the original Xbox's launch. What he says is quite relevant to today in gaming.

Tommy for the win! Most people attack others for not liking the same game as themselves just to create arguments (they love arguing with people). I think only a few people attack others because they can't handle a different opinion.

And wow is that video bright/hazy.

He's actually a lot smarter than he made himself look back when he was on Judgment Day.  Since he does music and sound effects for games,  he would take off points from a game in his review if he didn't like the way the footsteps sounded.  I also think he was a little biased too.  I remember when he reviewed the game for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and gave it a 9.5.  I don't see any reason for him giving it that score other than if he worked on it.

Tommy Tallarico = dickwad.  Fuck that dood, seriously.  I mean, he gave Advent Rising a good rating solely because he did the fucking music for it.  You wanna talk about egomaniac dipshits?  Tommy is at the top of the list.

Your ignorance towads him is apalling as you bash him for scoring a game a good rating just because he worked on it but Victor Lucas also gaved Advent Rising a good rating but it wasn't a high score it was just an 8.0 if  but so what that's just their own opinion. Your the type of sad gamers that Tommy Tallarico was just talking about in the video.

I remember him from Electric Playground.  He was pretty good at talking about video games and stuff but his opinions were a strange.  I remember he gave a really good review to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory when it came out.  Still, he is pretty cool and does the music for a lot of games.

This is very relevant to today but what has changed is most ironic. It's now the XBOX (and Sony fanboys) that attack Nintendo.

I agree. I hate that guy. He gave Tales of Symphonia a bad review because of the fucking cooking mechanic. In his words, "WHAT WAS UP WITH THAT?" You fucking cook shit and it has status effects, dumbass. You don't even need to do it if you don't want to. Besides, Tales of Symphonia was an amazing game, in its own right.

That's rubbish. It's been going on since the start of consoles: SNES vs. Mega Drive being the most notable "console war".

So what? is it a big deal if he didn't like it just for that? Plus, I disagree with many of his reviews but it's his personal opinion. Geez, how many times should I remind you 12 year-olds about this?
