HipHopGamer Gets A Grade

Hip Hop Gamer Slider

The HipHopGamer has always been a fascinating person to me. His enthusiasm is unmatched while his grammatical skills are…well, lacking. So, I asked myself, what if a series of HipHopGamer articles were submitted to a certified high school teacher as a writing assignment? The results are staggering if not enlightening.

Editor’s Note: This piece is in no way meant to serve as slander or to instill anger. I think the HipHopGamer is a wonderful human being who clearly speaks for a core demographic of gamers. I was just interested in how that demographic’s speaker would fare, if held to the same scrutiny dozens of other gaming sites are subjected to everyday. I’m sure you could go through the handful of articles on this site and rip them to shreds and that’s fine; it keeps us in check. I just hope that the rest of our little community of gaming enthusiast are at least trying to convey their enthusiasm to some sort of understandable language.

  1. HHG is the most unproffessionnal person in the industry. I personnaly see him as a troll or a joke who turned out to be popular. But i think people should not take this guy seriously until he prove how serious he is.

  2. LAWLALWALALALWLALWWLALALALWLALLALWLLALALALW

    L-O-L.

  3. Actually, after about 90 to 100Hz, the human eye can’t see the difference in monitors. A screen could have a refresh rate at about 150Hz, and another could have one at 100Hz, and the player wouldn’t be able to tell you which was which.

  4. go fark yourself son!

    looks like you have nothing better to do than to envy someone better than you

  5. I totally agree. I love to watch the Sunday show from time to time, but about 3 things get to me.

    First, the constant abuse of the English language is pretty painful, especially the amount of times he says, “…these is things”. Second, would be the lack of different supporting details provided to defend his opinion, yet he would be quick to throw out the same detail in a different light to further prove his point (that doesn’t count). Lastly, the sheer PS3 fanboy comes out all the time, and as a consumer that is predominantly Xbox, I would prefer some more just/unbiased videos.

    Also, every game gets a 90+ on the reviews. A lot of those games, especially the movie-to-game titles, can’t possibly be a 80+ since they are terrible. Annnnnd in the interviews he spends too much time telling the developers his ideas, regardless if they are plausible or not based on the context of the game.

    ASIDE from that, I enjoy his enthusiam and hold him as a separate journalist from the rest of the bunch because he demands that respect. He is 1 of the few journalists in the industry, along with Angry Joe, who get the job done to the best of their ability. He doesn’t rely on to get the interviews set-up or take care of the dirty work. You would be hard pressed to find other people like him around the net, and if you did, you could count them on 1 hand.

    -Xontic!

  6. I really like HipHopGamer stuff, I agree he is very enthusiastic, but he is sometimes hard to understand due to his grammar. This is an ingenious and very unique way of scrutinising his work. Although I’m sure I wouldn’t feel too great about the same thing happening to one of my articles.

  7. You don´t need to have a phd in English to be a journalist…
    What I don´t understand is, if you´re not trying to start shit then why are you posting stuff like this? You obviously contradicting yourself and your not even realising it.
    Do you know the definition of journalist? A journalist is someone who provides the audience with interviews, writen articles, or even videos. According to wikipedia a journalist is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Journalist

    Its like saying “the next time a blow a light bulb, im guna have to call a technitian to change it”

  8. Honestly?! Only the pathetic dead pixel will stoop to this low…get a real job ass wipe.

  9. Wow dod not know machinima had a blog and I can see why if this is what you post hope I never end up here again.

  10. The VGAs don’t need an apostrophe. It is neither possessive nor a contraction of anything.

  11. not needed at all.. im sure evryone who follows hiphop gamer understand what he’s about and what hes talking about.. if you dont understand him its simple, dont listen to him or read anything he says. ther is no need for grading and all this noses. since when did grading articles begin to matter in gaming..lol thats just immature

  12. this is slander…Everyone knows what kind of point you’re trying to make. I think you went about it the wrong way. Its not like he wrote this himself, the guy was just talking not writing an essay. I think is a little unfair what you did here.

  13. Guess what? No one gives a shit if he can write a perfect, grammatically correct article or not. This isn’t school, dad. Go find a hobby, or play videogames instead of nitpicking this guy in order to get hits for your article. (lol journalism).

  14. “This piece is in no way meant to serve as slander or to instill anger”

    Yeah right! Im not into HHG and he spurts a lot of BS sometimes. But if this is not slander then WTF is it? A tickle in the ass?

  15. You can’t slander someone in writing. Also, slander, by definition, is when a person makes a false statement about his or her target. There’s nothing false about this article.

    The word you guys are looking for is “disparage.” On that note, I would agree with your complaint. I have issues with HHG’s claim of being a journalist, but this article seeks to only belittle him, which I think is unfair. He’s never claimed to be a great writer and criticizing him like this is very condescending.

    Plus, even with all of his “uhs” and “ums,” he still has more charisma on camera than most people covering the video game industry. He has natural on-air talent. He just needs to quit the sensationalizing of the news, and be a little better prepared when asking questions.

  16. I think your wrong putting HipHopGamer out there like that. He is just a gamer giving us gaming news from what he knows and i fell that just because he don’t say his words proper don’t mean he can’t tell us gamers whats going on in the gaming industry. “This piece is in no way meant to serve as slander or to instill anger”, haha yeah…..right.

  17. who the fuck is “the dead pixel”???

  18. This isn’t slander, as it does nothing more than point out that the dude can’t write to save his life. Is it a little below the belt on Machinima’s part? Probably. But in all honesty, considering who the target is… I don’t care.

  19. I hate it when he speaks about hardware, he is frigging clueless and it hurts my brain to hear him talk about Memory Limitations with the expertise of a Plumber.

  20. WHY WHEN ANOTHER HUMAN BEING IS TRYING TO DO SOMETHING WORTH WHILE OTHER THAN STEALING OR ROBBING WE KNOW LOOK DOWN ON THEM, WHEN YOU’RE PASSIONATE ABOUT SOMETHING YOU GO AFTER IT, AND IF YOU STUMBLE ALONG THE WAY HOPEFULLY SOMEONE WILL THE LOVE OF GOD AND SOME COMMON SENSE IF ERRORS ON YOUR PART , WOULD COME AND SAY THIS IS HOW IT SHOULD BE DONE, DOING IT THAT WAY IS WRONG OR THAT PART IS THE WRONG PART, BUT WE SAY THE NEGATIVE FIRST. GODS LOVE ISN’T LIKE THAT AND NO MATTER HOW MANY GAMES WE PLAY, MOVIES WE WATCH. IN THIS LIFE WE HAVE A CHOICE, LIFE OR DEATH.

    LOVE DOES NOT HURT.

  21. This is just low. HipHopGamer started all this as a serious hobby, and hes not getting paid much for this. Maybe hes not a proper pro Journalist, but at the end of the day hes a journalist by definition, and he serves his purpose to his audience. Wow, someone does something in a different way and all of a sudden the middle class white guy has to belittle him.. pretty pathetic lol

  22. wow!!!!! what did he do to you guys to deserve this embarrassing type of negative exposure?? I’m sure there is some type of reasoning behind this!!!

  23. Wow… just… wow… Kovic, I thought you were above low blows, but this was uncalled for, dude… This is my first time visiting this blog, and now, I kinda regret it…. almost makes me not want to tune in to any of Machinima’s shows anymore. Ah well, there’s always Blistered Thumbs, and the other guys at Channel Awesome.
