    Default Hey retardo... why don't you come to your senses?

    http://forums.g4tv.com/messageview.c...&threadid=2928

    Can I say that I'm just a little bitter that a brain donor like Tommy Tallarico can get a job as a game reviewer on a national television network, while I'm treated like a pariah by every professional gaming magazine and web site in the entire universe?

    How was he involved in the making of Pac-Man, and those others? That's a mighty big claim.

    He's a musician. In other words, he's responsible for the least important part of any video game.

    As for Pac-Man, I heard rumors that he was writing the tunes for the Playstation version of Pac-Man World... not the classic Pac-Man that everyone remembers fondly. He also likes to tell everyone that he was involved with Metroid Prime, but what he DOESN'T say is that he was fired from that project.

    I wouldn't go as far to say that. Music is just as important, if not more so, than every other aspect in games. It helps set the mood better than graphics can, and without it, a game can suck horribly (Slave Zero and Cyber Morph?)

    And you're always bitter

    Wow that forum sucks. If that Tommy Gaylord had any self confidence he wouldnt have felt the need to go in there and rant like that. And all those people are just kissing his ass because he's on TV. I can't stand kiss-asses and thats what those people all are.

    G4 Forum Rule #1: Never badmouth someone who has worked on over 200 games and drives a Lamborghini.
    Oh my god, dude. Wipe his ass off when you're done.

    But that one dude (I only read the first page) that was disagreeing with him is even more of an idiot. People should be smart enough to know if a game is good before they buy it without reading a review?

    And here's a tip for the kiddies out there: If you have more than 3300 posts in a forum, you shouldnt criticize someone else for posting alot.

    Yup, I agree -- music is one of the most important things in a game.

    What's probaly the least important part? Multiplayer, since I never use it ANYWAY! :P

    Being a musician I may be biased but if music is the lest important part of a game why is the SID chip and it's musicians so revered!?

    I don't think much of the thread itself, but it has one of the best titles in the history of DP topics.

    Not only is it funny, but it somehow lures you in while keeping the actual content a complete mystery.

    Can you go into a little detail? I had never heard that and it explains why he craps all over nintendo games in his reviews.

    I really hate him and I think he's the biggest pretentious idiot on G4. Here's an example of his reviews " THIS GAME SUCKS CUZ IT DOESN'T HAVE BOOBIES." I might actually watch G4 if they fired him.

    I have yet to agree with a single thing that Tommy Tallarico has said. In the four or so weeks that I have had access to G4, I have found him to be the biggest loser on the channel.

    Oh my.

    I do not have digital cable yet and therefore hadn't even heard of this guy before this thread. Mr. Tallarico here argues like an angry child and has a HUGE ego. Look at this crap he wrote for his forum profile: http://www.g4tv.com/~Tommy_Tallarico

    What's up with everyone else on there, too? They all say that "they couldn't have put it better" and keep on saying what a god this guy is. What the hell? His posts are completely self centered and relatively stupid I might add.

    Wow, I am not going to go any further into this.. What an idiot! x_x

    While the guy may be an obnoxious prick (who has only contributed a whole lot of butt-rock to the game industry), I do have more respect for him than most professional reviewers, from what little I've seen of the show. If there's anything I absolutely HATE in a game reviewer, it's some little pussy that praises everything and sugarcoats what few and far apart complaints they have. At least, this guy has the balls to really be harsh on a game, and I like when the two hosts argue. It's got a Siskel and Ebert feel to it, which I can really appreciate.

    He is the founder and president of GANG? o_O Well, there's another reason for me to dislike him. Yeah, awards to recognize all that game music has to offer, yet they nominate like... one... Japanese game/artist, and then the rest is a whole bunch of garbage by American composers. If the music they nominate is truly the best game music of each year, then I guess I better stop buying game soundtracks because it all sucks. Oh wait... "whole world" doesn't mean "America", so I guess I'll go back to listening to GOOD composers AKA Japanese composers (unless they want to nominate Jeremy Soule or Dave Wise, but it's not like that's ever going to happen). :/

    And seriously, what's with all the exclamation points in that guy's rant? Sheesh, he makes some very good and valid points about reviewing (I have to deal with the same kind of moronic complaints about my reviews), but he's going about it all wrong.

    No Doubt Tommy T is an ass, but his videogame music for Pac-man World and Earthworm Jim 1+2 is really awesome.

    His "reviews" are pretty suspect tho...

    EDIT: Having now read his comment on the G4 board, Tommy's post came off as "spirited" but pretty laid back. And Judgement Day is one of the better shows on G4, probably because Tommy and Vic try to be entertaining to the viewer as well as review games...

    Here's his review of Animal Crossing, summed up into a few run-on sentences:

    That was basically it. I was very pissed when I saw his review because he didn't even bother to say anything good about AC. And if you insult my favorite game like he did, you are in for a world of hate.

    I had no idea that Tommy & Vic were G4 guys. I've seen their show on Space before and thought they were just another Mickey Mouse Canadian production (although one I liked)

    I'm surprised he ranted like that. Maybe he's new to the forum scene or something and didn't realize that 95% of the people out there ignored the original comments in the first place.
