Ha ha, what a topic. Can't watch the video as I'm at work, and I don't really want to watch it as I assume it is a hatchet job.
I'm aware that he has annoyed gamers on many occasions. To be honest, I can't really find fault with him on those pronouncements, though I guess that view is a lazy generalisation. But if we can't generalise, then what can we do? I don't fancy having every argument in minute detail.
However, I also am aware from reading the likes of Peter Skerrit on here, that we shouldn't condemn players for things they care greatly about, like the Mass Effect ending, the Call of Duty boycott etc. It's just a matter of perspective, and I find that though I don't share a lot of gamers' perspectives, I should be somewhat sympathetic.

I am actually less sympathetic to the Meat Boy guys 'cos they dissed Madden in one of those Brandon Bales interviews
