Illustration for article titled How internet hatred can destroy your soul and dreams

Phil Fish is the creator of a very popular and much loved video game called Fez. He's also the target of a lot of internet hatred. The latest hate burst has been so intense that he's calling it quits, canceling the second part of his original masterwork.


Fish is not only scrapping Fez II, but abandoning game development—his life passion, as shown in the movie Indie Game—altogether:

I'm not canceling FEZ II because some boorish fuck said something stupid, I'm doing it to get out of games ... and I'm getting out of games because I choose not to put up with this abuse anymore.


The last drop has been the intense rant by self-proclaimed "annoyed gamer" and game critic Marcus Beer, a person who—according to Kotaku readers—has made a living out of tearing apart the work of others with particular vileness.
