This guy directed Brothers Tale of Two Sons.

4 minutes of ranting later "I'll come to my point soon" LOL

[–]SlamMasterJ 49 points50 points  (0 children)

I love this guy.

[–]kasual7 160 points161 points  (3 children)

if the whole world tells me your game is shit I'll tell them... no it's not.

SOLD!

[–]Mr_pessimisterI_am_rushin 68 points69 points  (2 children)

I mean it might be shit, but I really appreciate that he believes in his art so much. Was excited for this game when unveiled, and that hasn't changed. It was maybe slightly annoying and I felt bad for Geoff, but it was funny as hell.

[–]bettareckognize 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I hadn't heard of it before, but I have to admit that I find the concept intriguing. Seems like something I can play with my partner. I have no idea who that maniac Frenchman is but I like his moxy.

[–]Rosveen 11 points12 points  (0 children)

He was born in Lebanon and moved to Sweden as a child. Not sure where "Frenchman" came from. :)

[–]Broken_Noah 120 points121 points  (1 child)

He probably did a better job of giving EA a better PR than it's CEO and CFO.

THEY SAY ALL AWARD SHOWS ARE CREATED EQUAL, BUT YOU LOOK AT THE GAME AWARDS AND YOU LOOK AT THE OSCARS, AND YOU CAN SEE THAT STATEMENT IS NOT TRUE.

...THE OSCARS ARE A BUNCH OF FATASSES

[–]Houston_Centerraempty-p5flair 69 points70 points  (3 children)

SEÑOR GEOFF, THE NUMBERS DON'T LIE.

[–]SuplewichCyber_PlayerV 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Geoff Keighley, while you stand there, hopefully as uncomfortable as you possibly can be, I want you to listen to me. I want you to digest this because before I leave in one year with your Game of the Year award, I have a lot of things I want to get off my chest.

He managed to get the largest crowd reaction and best moment of the show.

I like him. He’s a passionate guy.

[–]funkboy27Phunkboy 59 points60 points  (11 children)

I just checked his Wikipedia page. First it directed me to the Rwandan genocide. Then it took me to his page when I refreshed, but had a picture of him titled Tommy Wiseau. Someone is fucking with his page right now.

Or Wikipedia is fucked up.

Edit 1: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josef_Fares

Edit 2: Wikipedia being fucked with

[–]LegendOfJuan 12 points13 points  (3 children)

It was 4chan raiding his page, they were doing it for a good hour

[–]agamemnon2 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I'm surprised so many of the words were spelled correctly if it was 4chan doing it.

I was watching Demolition D's stream and people were editing the "A Way Out" page to hell and back. It kept on getting reverted back every few seconds.

Nah, I wouldn’t even know how to begin getting Wikipedia to trust me enough to edit anything, lol. But I did find it amusing for sure.

[–]andykekomi 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Can't anyone edit stuff in wikipedia? I put a joke edit on Kojima's page months ago and it's still there, and i've never done anything to gain wikipedia's trust (don't even have an account)

[–]whydoesthishaptome 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, anyone can edit Wikipedia, there's no trust involved. Your IP address does show up on every edit though and they can block it if you mess around too much, but that's about it. And so many people are editing Wikipedia, it's unlikely that would happen.

[–]Bartman013 35 points36 points  (1 child)

EA's response: "Josef Fares' public appearances will now be decreased by 75%"

[–]Sp3cVRightclick 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Hey everyone is off the EA hate train now cause of this guy and saying he is changing gaming history... Yet the game is being published by EA. He did the PR they needed.

[–]Raigeko13 294 points295 points  (49 children)

This dude definitely did a line of coke or something before he came on stage.

[–]ShelobTheGreat 112 points113 points  (3 children)

A line

All the lines.

[–]WolfintheShadows 7 points8 points  (2 children)

If the line is 6 feet long it still counts as one right?

[–]DietCokeGamer 2 points3 points  (1 child)

All the six-foot lines.

[–]Morrowind4Ever 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Rudi_Reifenstecher 16 points17 points  (0 children)

he's just a passionate jet lagged man

[–]OystterOfTime 43 points44 points  (4 children)

Yeah you can tell his forehead is a bit sweaty and his eyes are popping.

[–]alexcustom6877AlexCustom6877 18 points19 points  (1 child)

He just kept going

[–]OystterOfTime 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I absolutely loved it! We have to get this to the front page!

[–]Rudi_Reifenstecher -5 points-4 points  (1 child)

so uncomfortably touchy

[–]Air-Bo 8 points9 points  (0 children)

If he was on coke he wouldn’t of asked if he can cuss

[–]komentra 78 points79 points  (34 children)

I like how we as a society just immediately assume someone is on something when they do something unexpected.

Let’s all make sure to let him know that we know he does coke with no evidence.

[–]AnusRepeater 6 points7 points  (0 children)

If you don't follow societal norms, you are labelled as a stranger or outsider. No one is considering the fact that the people who know him personally are all saying that he is like that all the time. Chill people. He is a passionate man, just because he is more passionate than you or I does not mean you must seek to destroy him.

[–]bettareckognize 9 points10 points  (1 child)

The guy was fucked up, man. But it's possible he was just drunk and manic from the energy at the event, that's happened to me before (not while being watched by anyone more than the patrons of the karaoke bar...). But his actions are totally in line with blow as well. Doesn't really matter, it's just funny that the guy was inebriated and ranting like a maniac.

[–]DogmaticCatDogmatic_Cat 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That's what I was thinking. As someone who has made more than few drunken rants in his life I should know. Explains why he keeps repeating himself.

[–]Kskronz28 40 points41 points  (1 child)

It's also kind of obvious when someone else is on a drug that you've done plenty of times before and are familiar with

[–]NashBiker 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm surprised people are so offended by this. Guy is in entertainment, blow doesn't really have a stigma in those circles. Not like he's a office worker whose going to get randomly tested on Monday.

[–]angelicd 40 points41 points  (10 children)

kinda agree its shitty to label someone a drug user without any knowledge of them its almost as if people cant believe someone is eccentric or as josef put it passionate

imagine checking social media sites and people are claiming your actions are because you're snorting coke

yay for tarnishing peoples images

[–]kinkysnowman 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I dont see whats wrong with using drugs

[–]badabingbadabang 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It often tarnishes a person's credibility.

Not saying I agree with it, but that's the reality.

[–]yeluapyeroc -3 points-2 points  (4 children)

If you see enough people come through the doors of the ER acting like that, eventually you can just see it... this guy was on some kind of stimulant. Either an illicit one like coke or amphetamines (prescribed or not).

[–]conformistguy 5 points6 points  (2 children)

eventually you assume it

Fixed that for you.

I remember two years ago going to the ER and I legitimately thought I was having a heart attack, my pulse rate was hitting 120 at times. The nurses and even the doctor seemed kinda cold towards me. Not mean necessarily but more so they didn't really seem to care about what was going on with me. They ended up taking some urine and came back and told me I was having a panic attack and the way they treated me did a complete 180.

They told me the urine test was so they could check something with my heart. I'm not a doctor so as far I know that could be true but part of me thinks they just assumed I was hopped up on some type of amphetamine and when it came back that I wasn't they decided to be a bit more warm towards me.

They sent me a survey a few weeks later in the mail. I expressed my disappointment in everyone I had to deal with that night. Doubt those do anything however.

[–]Crying_Hotdog 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Correlation doesn't equal causation

[–]JohnnyFootballHero -1 points0 points  (0 children)

So he's usually this way? That really doesn't help his image either.

[–]Scarface_gv 26 points27 points  (6 children)

Literally this.. I remember watching a documentary about the war on drugs and the drug industry and this is what I DREAD the most about them.. Everytime you're being spontaneous, creative, surprising or just doing something new everyone instantly assume you're doing some drug.. Just like what ALL OF YOU thought after watching Hideo's new game trailer.. 'Oh, man.. Hideo is smoking some really strong shieeettt'

I hate that shit.. Fuck that.

[–]multiman000 21 points22 points  (1 child)

Oh no, i have full confidence that Kojima isn't on drugs, because if he was, his shit would make more sense.

[–]bettareckognize 4 points5 points  (0 children)

When you get to that level of weird, I find that it wouldn't really be possible to keep up that level of drug use for that long, so I figure he's just got to be like that all the time. Like Salvador Dali said, "I don't do drugs, I am drugs."

[–]SirRealistSirRealistOne 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Except his eyes were bugged out, glazed over and he said he had "jetlag". Pretty sure he was on some kind of substance.

Source: I've been on all kinds of substances.

[–]Rosveen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just like what ALL OF YOU thought after watching Hideo's new game trailer.. 'Oh, man.. Hideo is smoking some really strong shieeettt'

It was clearly an exaggeration, very few people actually thought that. People often say it when they see something highly unusual, but they are rarely serious. It's meant as "wow, this is so out of this world, a normal brain wouldn't think of it".

It's different from the situation with Fares. He was manic, rambling barely coherently and largely off-topic, he had physical symptoms that don't necessarily indicate drug use, but might. When I was watching him, I wasn't thinking "wow, what a passionate man with a vision!"; I was thinking "fuck, he's unhinged". And if I'd never heard of his game before, he'd have immediately put me off of it because I'm scared of maniacs.

[–]Clownbrownies 3 points4 points  (6 children)

It was just a harmless joke. Chill the fuck out

[–]komentra -1 points0 points  (5 children)

Yeah. I can totally see how saying someone does drugs can be harmless to their image and/or how they're perceived by their peers.

This is how stupid shit rumors get started by making "jokes" about false information.

[–]NashBiker 3 points4 points  (0 children)

If im not mistaken he was in film before hand so no one gives a fuck if he's doing blow.

You on the other hand sound like you could use a Xanax.

[–]itrolledyougood 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh yeah, because some guy in a thread on an internet forum said "lul i bet he's tripping" is totally gonna ruin this guys entire life and career.

[–]Clownbrownies 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You need some pussy or a candy bar or something. Jesus

[–]conformistguy -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

nailed it.

Maybe we should start a "joke" about how /u/uclownbrownies is... a.. i don't know.. a child molester. Is that okay? After all it's just a joke! /s

[–]komentra -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Okay but ONLY if it's a joke.

[–]itrolledyougood -1 points0 points  (0 children)

You sound triggered.

My game is not shit, it's not true! It's bullshit! It's not shit! It's naaat! Oh hai, Geoff.

[–]JAMurida 106 points107 points  (3 children)

Geoff always trying to keep it professional and timely. I know he was thinking the entire time, "this motherfucker right here man...." Always nice to seem him around though <3

[–]-Vertex- 63 points64 points  (0 children)

You could see his frustration, there was really nothing he could do but keep level headed and try to shut him up as best as possible lol.

[–]Broken_Noah 40 points41 points  (0 children)

He was probably thinking "Jesus Christ, the sponsors..."

[–]sgtZipper 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think Geoff misunderstood/misheard the question about cursing, else he wouldn’t have said yes to the question “can you curse?”.

[–]SkullCandyy 48 points49 points  (11 children)

Honestly, what he said and how he acted made me excited for this game even though its being published by EA

[–]INoobTubedYouIn2009 28 points29 points  (0 children)

We've all been stuck in this conversation. You're at a party when one person is drunk and won't shut the fuck up, and you're just standing there with one beer in you saying "...yeah....totally.....yeah yeah man. Cool."

Anyone else feel like that was what his announcement was going to be?

Hopefully EA doesn't fuck up, cause this guy just sold me in this game.

He praised EA, not really unexpected considering they are his publisher.
