And by professional, I mean (((video game critic))).

This is more painful to watch than polygon's Doom.

His response to the backlash:
Quote
I've watched the comments on this thread just to see how mean they would be. I think it's useful to show my gameplay experience. I did not intentionally play poorly to "troll" anyone. But it serves as an interesting social experiment. I walk into a game cold, and this is the play that results. The video shows it's a notch more difficult than your typical Mario game. In fact, if you are expecting Mario, as the story says, then you are thrown off. And it shows that the developers are going to leave a lot of people who are worse than me behind. Maybe they're fine with that. Maybe they want to target gamers with a love for difficult games. That's fine. But I think they should signal that. How many games actually come with a tutorial these days? They're not popular. But if it's necessary, that is a signal this is going to require some skill. As for other comments on this thread, I wonder why they are hostile to someone who is viewing the game as a beginner? Are we that intolerant of people who are not "gamers"? Should I have played the scene over and over again until I was good at it, and then turned the recording on, like so many of those perfect video walkthroughs you see? I believe that games can be made accessible and inviting to people who are not hardcore fans, and these people can be accommodated inside the same game that is appealing to hardcore fans, through difficulty levels. So when people tell me that I shouldn't be playing this game because, on my first play, I was pretty lousy -- that's an attitude that argues that games should be shut off in their own little corner, only played publicly by the masters and the experts. I disagree with that view entirely, and I believe it leads to elitist attitudes that allow gamers to look down on other people, and that only leads to a more fragmented world of haters.

just like dark souls.

Cuphead and other terrible gameplay thread, I guess.

Don`t suffer in silence.
I only saw 25 seconds of this, but I can already say that person playing a game is a retard, troll or his cat took controls, although even cat wouldn`t play so bad.

It all makes sense if you imagine that he's using a steering wheel for a controller.

Fuck.

He essentially blames the game for having bad tutorials and pacing, but for the first 5 minutes, he just square-block-round-hole'd the basic jumping mechanic and refused to try anything different.

And it's hardly even an issue with his motor-skills.  He made the exact same mistakes over and over and over again, and it was like he refused to learn from it.  Or it actually was a machine-learning AI.

To be a little fair, playing games at a place like a Gamescom booth is pretty distracting: usually standing up, looking down at a tiny screen at a weird angle, with a ton of people making noise and a bunch of lights going off.  I don't think that's nearly a good enough excuse for his lack of basic problem-solving skills, though.

You will find out who you are not a thousand times, before you ever discover who you are. I hope you find peace in yourself and learn to love instead of hate.

Dude has some pretty bad skills, but I kinda feel for him. He doesn't deserve this kind of backlash.

There goes any sympathy I had.

The only people I feel sympathy for are the developers who've had their p cool video game turned into a dumb meme.

looks like a bunch of lies and exuses tbh fam. this dude has really no business being a "games journalist the" if he sucks this much at his job. the guy hasn't gotten any better since 2007 when he gave mass effect 1 a bad score because he didn't use his talent points when he leveled up.

Sympathy? I had never heard of this game before this meme and I'm sure the same goes for thousands of others. This is excellent advertising for them.

And I've still never heard of it or given it more than a brief glance and forget. I think it's a given that the game suddenly drew in a lot more attention following this.
