Response article of the illiterare retard towards the backlash of his ineptitude:
http://archive.is/d8yRN

Games journalist Dean Takahashi, industry veteran with 25 years of experience, playtested a demo of the upcoming 2D shooter Cuphead at Gamescom 3 weeks ago.

The playtesting video turned into a trainwreck immediately at the start where Takahara repeatedly failed to overcome a hurdle in the Tutorial section of the game. Despite detailed onscreen instructions and indication arrows, the journalist failed for over 90 seconds to make the connection that he needs to make a jump midair. A 4 year old child figured out the same problem out in less than 10 seconds without reading comprehension.

The disasterous video was later retweeted by a former prominent Gamergate supporter and went viral after that, gaining attention from fans, journalists and game producers, including the creator of Minecraft.

The journalist promptly went onto podcasts to defend his inability, calling for games being to hard, the fetishisation of "skill" and asking for adjustable difficulty levels in all games. A while after the twitter outrage, a response article was written by him, where Takahashi unironically blamed Gamergate, the Alt Right and Donald Trump for bein glaringly terrible at video games and his job.

TLDR: Game Journalists sucks at games, if you enjoy difficult games that take skill you are an evil right winger.

What a massive faggot.
It's one thing to dislike hard games and wanting easier versions, that's understandable; it's a whole other animal altogether to blame others for your lack of skill/commitment.

I actually have to agree with him saying that games are too focused on false pretenses of skill, but cuphead isn't one of those games...
If your game kills/punishes you for something you couldn't have possibly known, that's a false pretense of skill.
If the event was foreseeable at all, or it deals with something you already know how to handle, that's fine.
