Egoraptor encouraged Redditors (citizens of Reddit.com) to ask him questions on IAmA. He stayed for about 4 hours, bombarded with questions and comments. The thread ended up on the front page and had1868 replies (at the moment of writing this article).
Egoraptor is the creator of the Awesome Series (Awesome Reach, PokeAwesome and more) and a very acclaimed critic of video games. Those that want to learn how to make games, review them or how to make animations should read the interview because there are some powerful advices, most of them can be summed up by “Don’t stop. DON’T STOP. KEEP DOING IT”. All in all he had a fun and successful time in Reddit, unlike Woody Harrelson. Here is what he had to say about the experience:
Thank you all for being so fucking kind to me. I’ve had such a good time answering questions. I only took like 4 hours out of my day to do this and I hope that doesn’t make me a loser celebrity who only answers ten questions but I tried to answer a ton until I got to a point where 20 questions in a row were already answered. I hope that’s okay, because I’m so hungry, I need to go eat and then get some work done haha. Thanks for hanging out with me!
It is such a looooooong thread so, for this post, I’m going to pick a few gaming-related questions (maybe one or two unrelated but awesome questions/answers) so you get an idea of how it was like and, if interested, read the whole thing yourself.
Note: Bold are the Redditors and normal is the man himself.
How upset were you when the iOS port of Mega Man X featured just about everything you said was wrong with gaming today?
It’s pretty depressing, but it’s also uplifting that I’ve gotten nothing but comments saying how disgusting it is. I’m glad people aren’t suckered into it. That’s what’s more upsetting.
