A better question is why you have VGC set to 10 posts per page.

Lol I was thinking the same, he sucks as an actor.

Actually pretty funny quotes, he'd better not find himself in any small rooms with a bunch of Wii fans anytime soon, though.

Try to be reasonable... its easier than you think...

Ok, let me rephrase this.

Why have people wasted 80 posts in this thread?

GOTY Contestants this year: Dead Space 2, Dark Souls, Tales of Graces f. Everything else can suck it.


1. A person who engages in an art, science, study, or athletic activity as a pastime rather than as a profession.
2. Sports. An athlete who has never accepted money, or who accepts money under restrictions specified by a regulatory body, for participating in a competition.
3. One lacking the skill of a professional, as in an art.


1. Of or performed by an amateur.
2. Made up of amateurs: an amateur cast.
3. Not professional; unskillful.

I'm guessing he means "unskillful".

Let's talk less of this dude and more of Megan Fox.... I'll start: I would like to F___ the s___ out of Megan Fox.

What's wrong with the Wii?
This is how in a simple way you can find out if it's a gamer you want to play with. Ask them if they have a Wii. If they say yes, get the f*** out of there.

Is that why you wouldn't play LEGO Star Wars with Megan Fox on the set of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen?
Correct. Who wants to play the Wii version of LEGO Star Wars. I'd rather eat glass.

Not playing Lego Star Wars Wii with Megan Fox because he doesn't like the Wii? :o THIS IS A NEW FORM OF FANBOY! WHAT A TWIST! lmao at the eat glass part.

Anyway, I think he's a good actor. He did an awesome role in Transformers. But he seems like a dick in real life. But Transformers 2 will be awesome <3

Also, this was posted in other places and got a bunch of replies for no reason.

Makes sense... Amateur actor calls a good console amateur...

He was out acted by a CG robot and made Indiana Jones ride bitch on a motor bike! Thats enough for me

Well, if you think about it, he's right in a way. Is Wii Sports known for its difficulty? What about the core games designed with easy controls? It does lend itself to being a bit easy, gameplay wise. There are a few that stick out there in difficulty, but does anyone really see the Wii library as being overly challenging?

Not to back the guy up, by any means. I don't care for Transformers at all, nevermind not being much of a movie buff and/or knowing who this person is. Just know he said amateur, not immature. The Wii does lend itself to anyone picking up games quickly, this isn't anything everyone didn't know already.

Hah, funny quotes. I'm a huge Wii fan, and really... don't think this is something worth taking seriously. The guy's still alright in my book.

So yeah, his anti-Wii comment was ignorant - who cares? People talk like this all the time when it comes to fanboyish matters (erm, does that make sense?). He did say he liked Mario / Mario Kart / Civ IV (been playin all three a ton recently myself).

I suppose I prefer having another rabid HD fanboy gamer to a nongamer. Also, I have friends who'd say the same thing, so I see where he's coming from (probably doesn't know all there is to know about the Wii).
