  1. I felt genuine disgust when Bethesda tried to take credit for inventing Wolfenstein 3D, live on stage. Like, I watched the Devolver Digital conference afterwards, with all it's blood and gore and puke and seizure inducing screen scrambling, and that still filled me with less disgust than Bethesda trying to take all the credit for what was provably ID software's work alone.

    Do they think people were born yesterday or something...? Okay in hindsight these idiots cheering on Elder Scrolls Blades probably gave them that exact impression. Nevermind then.

      These audiences have become organic sitcom laughtracks.

      I swear that audience had to be pay for. I refuse to believe people would not only praise Blades, but fucking Fallout

      @Ryannumber1gamer To be fair it is actually standard practice for comedians to hire people to laugh at all their jokes regardless of their actual humor, and for live performers in general to hire people to clap for them no matter what. Only theatre seems to be the exception, but even then family and friends of the actors are often offered free seats to shows— a gesture extended in part because family and friends will reliably and proudly support the actors they’re associated with for free. 

      It’s supposed to influence people’s perceptions of the performance and provide the audience a cue for how and when to react. But when done wrong or with a performance that is simply too bad or offensive to sugarcoat, the audience may as well be voicing for a parody of the Big Bang Theory, because their reactions sound canned, detached, and inappropriate. The paid audience members will laugh at set-ups, clap for terrible visuals, etc. in a way that just makes them not believable as happy fans or even curious outsiders.
