Video Games Have A Friend In Hellboy's Director

Guillermo del Toro, director of Hellboy and Pan's Labyrinth, has a few kind words to say about the "intelligentsia" at a recent book signing in Portland.


    I love this guy.

    Honestly, it's annoying to hear, time after time, the incessant whinging of "critics" such as Mr. Obnoxious himself (Roger Ebert), devaluing games.

    Sure, games like Call of Duty will never be considered art, and are quite violent, but there are diamonds in the rough, and I would never refute the claim of any man or woman who claims that "Braid", "World of Goo", "Ico" or "Myst" are art.

    I'm glad that someone in Mr. del Toro's position is standing up against the industry in which he is successful.

    Now that I've crossed that off my bucket list, I only need to see Kotick fired before I'm truly content with the gaming world.

      +1. Hats off to you sir, and to Del Toro, for this is pretty much what I think as well.

    <-- Is juniour intelligentsia. Don't worry, I'll sort them out.

    The man directing "At the Mountains of Madness" loves video games. How can you not love the guy?

    He is a great man.

    I rofled hard watching blade 2 with the directors commentary on,
    He was talking about a scene in it where they had to remove fake sperm from a peepshow window because the censors complained :D
    Now that's attention to detail!

    He put the nail in the coffin right there! Hats off to you Guillermo Del Toro.
