Now guys, you don’t really call a reviewer ‘retarded’ for not agreeing with the review or score. George Broussard, the lead designer of Duke Nukem Forever (yeah), called an EGM reviewer ‘retarded’ on Twitter for giving Halo 4 a 70% score.
This has stunned plenty of people, because you would never expect someone like Broussard to say this sort of a thing. He got put in his place though by a reply which mocked the game Duke Nukem Forever. You know what they say about people living in glass houses… yeah, that applies here.
Cool review, bro. Sorry, but you're a retard if you give Halo 4 a 70. Zero credibility. egmnow.com/articles/revie…— George Broussard (@georgeb3dr) November 3, 2012
As you can see here, he not only used an old meme (Cool story bro), but also also pointed fingers at the reviewer’s credibility.
He even attempted to defend his tweet later when Patrick Klepek of Giantbomb correctly pointed out that people have opinions and we shouldn’t encourage group think.
@patrickklepek We should encourage credibility and accuracy. Who said anything about group think?— George Broussard (@georgeb3dr) November 3, 2012
Broussard has the right to voice his opinions though, but in a way it’s just wrong to call someone retarded because of something you don’t like. This is not really a big deal since the reviewer can defend himself too, but just something that feels so wrong.
