I got the chance to work with Cliff. And the first time I met him I knew who he was right away but he introduced himself anyway saying "I need to do that otherwise people think I'm an asshole." He was always aware that people thought he was an ass and went out of his way to combat it. He just wasn't very good at doing so as time went by.

He also was not fired or forced out at Epic. He basically called in rich one day along with some of the other OG people who had been around for a long time.

Epic was a gamer's company and Cliff spoke to those people at that time. A gamer who rose to wealth through sheer love and passion.

That worked as a front man for a while but clearly got to his head and it is hard for it not to when you're surrounded by a bunch of sycophants and fans who keep telling you how awesome you are despite the fact there are over 76 other people in the credits of the game you worked on, and that doesn't even include the publisher and the outsourcers.

I take no pleasure in his failure, just like I take no pleasure in seeing John Romero, or Richard Garriott making shitty mobile games, or Chris Roberts running his scam or John Smedly doing his regular racket once again in California. The era of the "Gaming Gods" has long since passed and these folks just never got the message. It is sad the message has to be hammered into their brain with a brick over and over and over.

Gaming gods are dead. Tech gods reign for the moment. And Insta/Tube gods.

What a fucking parasitic, mind-numbing, diseased time to be alive, lol.

This was an example of the sort of politically correct hot-button issues that CliffyB decided to get behind (both in his game & on his twitter account).
Funny thing is, that's not giving the finger to the NC government. That's actually the solution they proposed. Giving the finger to the NC government would be if your character dressed up like a girl and went into a Women-only bathroom (or vice-versa). That would show them!

We are a progressive nation now! If a 52 year old man wants to pretend he is a girl and occupy the stall next to your 13 year old daughter, that's progressive, you bigots!

What I find weird about the decline of the gaming gods is that NOW is the greatest time to be a game developer. Yes, game budgets for big AAA games have ballooned to the point where the publishers are only making “safe” games and shitty sequels, but the technology is there for the people who want to use it to create incredible awesome indie titles on much more moderate budgets.

You can literally let your imagination be your guide now... look at No Man’s Sky. While it clearly needed another year of development time, it was still made by 6 guys living in a van down by the river (they were literally flooded out of their office at one point) and while the title didn’t live up to the promotional materials they released they still did a ton with not a lot of money.

That’s the kind of game that John Romero, CliffyB and Richard Garriott should be making. They shouldn’t be trying to force their way into the AAA gaming space based on their past credits alone. They should do what they did in the beginning which is innovate.

I think of what I would make with their money and while it might not be the kind of game that you might want, it least it would still be original and unique.

CliffyB got caught up in this idea that Unreal Tournament was still the best deathmatch game ever created and he just wanted to re-create that title. That’s just not true because if it was true, we would still be playing it and publishers would still be cranking out sequels to it.

All he had to do before starting Lawbreakers was look at the epic failure of Quake Online and see that he was heading right off a cliff. (If you will excuse the pun.)

Same thing I wrote on the "Boss Key Shuts Down" article:

Met and talked with him several times in a professional capacity, including in Raleigh. Complete piece of shit. I want you to imagine the most pathetic, insecure kid you knew in 7th grade who tried so laughably hard to be cool (like Seth Green's character in Can't Hardly Wait). Now imagine that kid never growing out of it, like most did by college age, and making it to 27 the same insecure blowhard who bros out and throws devil horns because rock & roll. I wanted to punch this guy the minute I met him and in every interaction since. Fake as all hell, tries way too hard, drips with insecurity, and deserves everything befalling him.

I thought the hate was misplaced until he built tranny bathrooms and told everyone about it on the internet. Then i jumped on the bandwagon.


And lol @ the cuck shirt!

He'll be ok. Im sure he's got plenty socked away to never have to work again. Id kill to be failure Cliffy B.

The guy lost his way a long time ago. His final two failed projects proved that.
So he wanted to get woke and now got broke.
