    RR PR Hero 2008: Jonnie Bryant

    Considering the generally low standard of PR scum, all one would have to do to win this award is be mildly tolerable. Yet a handful of husks have managed to defy their positions more than you might expect by actually being half-decent human beings that, gasp, do their jobs.

    Taking the crown is Jonnie Bryant from Vivendi:

    “A man who answers his phone, gets you stuff quickly, and makes sure that things run smoothly no matter what. And he works for Vivendi, what the fuck is that about.”
    Anonymous Knight, via email

    Notable nominations include Vicky Arundel from Introversion, and Rich Eddy from Codemasters:

    “Codemasters’ Rich Eddy. A long-serving industry gent who never fails to be friendly and, believe it or not, helpful.”
    Anonymous Knight, via email

    Taking nothing away from Rich, don’t let his company’s nomination fool you – the PR scum at Codemasters are some of the most unhelpful, surly fucking shits you’ll ever have the misfortune to deal with. More than once they’ve fucked us over when it comes to assets for previews. But hey, it’s not like they’re paid to make sure their games are covered in major specialist mags or anything.
