Why does Michael Pachter get so much attention?

#1Jx1010Posted 3/19/2013 5:56:06 AM
Latest headline from Michael Pachter:
''Microsoft Will 'Deliberately Trash' the PlayStation 4''

Seems to me that he is just another guy online like any other gamefaqs user who has their opinions, except this guy is full of guano

He also likes to stir console wars and debates over the usual trash talk...
Is he the manifestation of modern video game ignorance?

Don't know how he started but he has a show on game trailers.com

Analysts are almost always way way off

I agree with you and the TC. I have no idea why Gamespot usually post articles about his "predictions" and "analysts."

Everybody shut up. You don't drive a Porsche.

My only issue is that he states the obvious, and when he doesn't......he's flat out wrong at every turn.

He's popular, like so many youtube dicks, because people give him views. For some reason, they just need to hear a trumped up old guy, saying what they've been seeing already.

He started out on Gametrailers as a guest on a show, and lots of people hated on him because he didn't know squat about video games, but it got them a lot of views so they kept bringing him back. Now, he has his own show there. I just hate listening to someone talking about or predicting things about video games when they're not a gamer.

But I don't think anyone takes Pachter seriously anymore ever since he said "the Walking Dead has absolutely no chance of winning Game of the Year" when it won after he said that.
