    “Celebrity” Reaction: Dave Perry


    Dave was the last of our nation’s “celebrity” journalists to give us a response to his Top 10 entry (the shameful four who ignored us are Curran, Cutlack, Diamond and Krotoski – if anyone wants to send in responses on their behalf, good or bad, we’ll post the best as punishment). On a more positive note, Dave’s response was very good.


    “There's no disgrace in coming second to Mr Campbell, who is certainly one of my own favourite games writers of all-time. I'd like to thank everyone who voted for me... and so on, and so on, and everybody who has enjoyed my mags or watched the TV shows I've appeared on through the years!”

    We couldn’t agree more – coming second to Campbell is nothing to be ashamed of. Dave answered his personal question next.


    “As for the question as to whether I have any plans to return to the industry... the answer is a simple one... yes I do.

    Apart from interacting with members and fans over at my website, I have deliberately stayed away from gaming on a professional level for the past five years or so. I think everybody needed a rest from me, and I needed a rest from 'having' to play games, rather than playing them because I wanted to. During my time away I've been able to play just for fun again and it has been good for me and for my love of gaming. Now I feel ready to immerse myself in the industry again and hopefully put a bit of 'colour' back into its cheeks. Older, wiser... just as big headed. Should be interesting.”

    Dave makes a good point there. Not many people realise how different the experience of playing games as a job is compared with playing for fun. We’d definitely agree that it’s time he made a comeback too, before all those half-arsed “mainstream” journalists and company bitches make us forget what gaming’s really all about.


    “Thanks for the praise. You're all very brave. Ram Raider Rules!”

    Aww, thanks Dave. The RAM Raider salutes you.


    (PS – Thanks to Board of Biffo’s Ming for the picture of Dave making his presence felt)

      “There's no disgrace in coming second to Mr Campbell, who is certainly one of my own favourite games writers of all-time."

      Oh yeah? Which of Stuart's games are your particular favourites, would you say? Or didn't you actually mean to say that Stuart is someone who writes games, you pile of fucking excrement wrapped in a stained, smelly old tea towel, only you're a bit rubbish with words so you couldn't help it?

      And 'all-time' isn't hyphenated, you absolute fucking twonk. And stop dying your fucking hair blond - you're not in your twenties and on the telly talking at kids about how to get extra lives on Sonic the fucking Hedgehog any more.

      We’d definitely agree that it’s time he made a comeback too, before all those half-arsed “mainstream” journalists and company bitches make us forget what gaming’s really all about.

      You're as bad as this cunt Perry, RAM Raider! In fact, if you're letting 'all those half-arsed “mainstream” journalists and company bitches' have any effect on you whatsoever, you're actually a BIGGER cunt than he is.

      Well, let's hope so, RAM Raider, because you have the dullest, flattest writing style I have ever seen, so it sure as shit ain't gonna be you lifting it out of the doldrums.

      It's so funny when you read comments like the first one in this thread. Perry has managed to do this all through his career... goad idiots into rising to the bait.

      Mr Anonymous, you may feel that you're being clever and rebellious by hurling insults at the Gamesanimal, but chances are he's sat somewhere laughing at your post. You know he'll be keeping an eye on the comments. He loves to read about himself.

      All you're doing is giving him exactly what he wants - a reaction.

      That's why he is a 'face' and you... are not.

      Come on, Dave, have the balls to actually post under your actual name, you stinking sack of blood-streaked tramp semen. I don't need to because, as you say, I'm not a 'face'.

      You don't need to tell me about your internet habits - I know you spend all your time trawling forums for mentions of your name (hilariously, when you realised that it doesn't happen very often you had to actually set up your own forum and make it happen yourself!).

      How are you making this so-called comeback, anyway? Come on - your fans need to be told. And I'm really looking forward to seeing your old grandad face somewhere trying to be in some way relevant to what gaming is nowadays (clue: Ken and Ryu from Street Fighter don't have much to do with it).

      You loser cunt.

      Well, it's no surprise to discover that, like all Perry fans, you are borderline illiterate.

      And I think you'll find that Perry's unstoppability was called into question many years ago, around about the time when games like Bubsy The Bobcat were being made and even his sad, fuck-it-I'll-even-stand-outside-your-shitty-independent-game-store-in-Norwich-on-its-opening-day-and-shout-into-a-megaphone-in-an-attempt-to-drum-up-trade approach to self-promotion wasn't enough to prevent him slipping into the greasy arse-crack of obscurity. (He's now resorting to sending grovelling emails to Julian Rignall in a bid to generate interest in himself off the back of someone who's not even interested in games any more. How fucking sad is that?)

      Now fuck off, foreskin wipe.

    12. I think the nerd protests too much. Its obvious to anyone reading this that you have a crush of the Games Animal.

      I've got an idea. Why don't you go outside and get a life?

      It's not gay love, I just want to see him do it. Because it's about all he's good for.

      Hahaha Your an American! A Fucking yank!

      Trousers:
      An outer garment for covering the body from the waist to the ankles, divided into sections to fit each leg separately.

      Whilst pants are:
      an undergarment that covers the body from the waist no further than to the thighs; usually worn next to the skin.

      OK? Do you understand that?

      Now go back to your fantasy world where you spend all day sucking Dave's dick and licking his toilet seat.

      You fat, American ARSE-hat

      Pity the Gamesmaster.tv website is no longer up. There was an interview with someone on there where they also describe Dave as an ass-hat.

      Coincidence?

      Maybe?

      But it's not an expression you hear everyday is it?
