And not a single fuck was given that day.

2. This is Gaben we're talking about. This is the guy who held up a sign saying some jagoff was his son just because he was emailed and asked to do so. He has a sense of humor. If he thinks it would be funny to tell the world he likes My Little Pony and then watch them squabble about it, he goddamn would.

Or he just watched MLP and thinks no one is pathetic enough to flip their shit about it on the internet. Goes for both haters and bronies, by the way.

So, down at Valve HQ.

"So what can we do to stop them asking for Half Life Ep 3 over and over again"

"Wait I have an idea"

"World, I like My Little Pony"

*Fan outrage*

"That should keep them busy for a while".

Gabe, give me a brohoof.
And take this as my "welcome to the club" :D
Id get you a members jacket, but im horrible at stitching, so your out of luck.

Well gentlemen the day has finally arrived, we knew that this was inevitable but we never thought it would be so soon. Humanity is doomed.Each of you will be provided with a cyanide pill and a cup of water. I will see you all on the other side. God speed gentlemen, god speed.

Well, good for you gabe. And good for you, all you other bronies. I may not like it, I may not even understand it, but you're free to watch what you want as long as it's not disney teen movies.

...

but mark my words! I will never lay eyes upon that show, I am pure cynic, muhahahaha! I will hole up in my fort with Dr cox, dr house, and francis from left 4 dead and you can send all the brony herds you want, as they will be torn asunder by machine gun fire and pure, bitter cynicism towards all your friendship and niceness! WE ARE BITTER! WE ARE GRUMPY! WE WILL TRIUMPH!

Does this in any way matter?? If someone enjoys the show, they should watch it. If not, just don't watch it. All this obsession over who else watches it is silly. Trying to define someone by one show they enjoy is ludicrous. His games are what matter, the rest is inconsequential. :)

That... does not mean anything to me. It's like if he admitted he likes wine.
Have to say though, he looks far more humanlike with the beard.

O.T:Huh. That's...cool, I guess. Doesn't really change anything.

Well, in my eyes, Gabe is now 20% cooler.
Now his coolness level is over nine thousaaaaaaaa-etc..etc..
Also the beard suits him well.
But still, what is all the rage about? so he enjoys the show, maybe he got hooked in because he had to watch it with related schildren maybe,but still, who the flying fuck cares? let him be.What is this ages fascination with other people's personal lives?

Gabe Newell is into MLP?

XD!!!

That's pretty funny.

...Wait...some people are flaming like crazy in the comments? *checks* ...HUH? Why? What's the big deal if he watches MLP? Why is this being flamed? ?_?

Imagine if Valve made a My Little Pony game.

I'd be interested.

Of course, you realize what this means:

Suicidejim:
Oh . . . no? I'll be honest, I'm just puzzled. Man likes TV show.

I've never got the controversy. It's just a show.

This is a brilliant opportunity to laugh at people's reactions on YouTube, that's why it matters.

So THIS is the reason Half Life 3 has been delayed. It all begins to make sense...and I'm ok with this. Even more evidence for why Gabe is awesome too.

Next he'll say he likes videogames, too.

What a fucking nerd!

He could hunt kittens for the hell of it, that wouldn't really bother me by this point.

Andy Shandy:
I believe this sums up my view of this news.

My thoughts exactly. It's a show on TV and he watches it. I don't even watch it but seriously...WHO THE HELL CARES?

Fappy:
I think we need to make a distinction here: Is he a brony... or does he simply watch and enjoy MLP? I mean he said it but it doesn't necessarily mean he is actually part of the Brony community.

I'll simplify it for you, since I used to be a Brony.. now i'm just a happy-all-around fan.

Fan of MLP: FiM = Someone who enjoys the show, loves the characters and admires the artwork or how entertaining the story is within each episode. They are however mainly into other things, and only watch the show without expressing how much of a fan they are.

Brony = A major fan who identifies oneself as someone who literally loves everything about MLP:FiM. They will most likely have their Avatar relating to the show, have an urge to share inside jokes or references with others about the show, checks out multiple websites relating to MLP:FiM for purposes based on Memes or the liking, and most importantly they will feel far strongly for what happens in the show then what fans feel (the fans who like the show.)

Not that anything's negative about the two, yet I hope this helped most who read this understand the difference. I'm partly a Brony, but starting to really become just a fan faithful to the show alone (after all, I did quote you specifically on why I dislike the Brony community Fappy.)

i was under the impresion a brony was any fan of the show no matter what deegre it is (something that kinda bothered me since that that means a brony could be anything from someone that enjoys the show to someone that writes "clopfiction")

From the clips I've seen of MLP: FiM it just looks like Strawberry Shortcake with ponies - but not as good.

Yeah that is it if you watch even one episode you get that name forced on you.

NightmareLuna:
I mean, if you compare me, someone who enjoys the show and watches it every sunday to... Let say someone that has all blind bag ponies, toys, posters, etc, etc... Does that make him more of a fan/brony?

To me it just makes him more verbal/showing of his fandom. Which is not negative in any way, it is just that we have different ways of expressing our enthusiasm.

To be fair, I've always seen "brony" as a term which is very open to interpretation. It means different things to different people.

OT: What changes if Gabe likes MLP? Absolutely nothing. I don't understand what everyone's so worked up about.

Well he would be a brony wouldn't he. He fits all the characteristics: fat and old.

The last bit by the interviewer: that's the sound of a man who just realized he's going to set the internet ABLAZE.

HOLY SHIT! THIS MAN LIKES MY LITTLE PONY? WHAT IS THE WORLD COMING TO NEXT THING YOU KNOW VIN DIESEL IS GONNA SAY HE LIKES D&D WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO...
Seriously calm down it's not a big deal although now I see many new ways for valve to troll fans

Cool for him. Chris Avellone likes Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. You don't see that making news. Really somebody liking a show isn't big news. If he likes it good for him. If you like it good for you.

Nice beard man. I like it.

OT: No,fuck that, I give no shits about your show and if people like it or not.

People are butt devastated because this is the first thing that pops into most people's minds when they think of the word "brony."

Mark Chipperfield:
Well he would be a brony wouldn't he. He fits all the characteristics: fat and old.

I'm with this guy. He LOOKS like the kind of guy who would watch a little-girl's cartoon. This is what I imagine all 'bronies' look like. Fat with scraggly neck beards.

Wow, Steven Spielberg really put on weight...anyway yes, teh ponies, while the butthurt is hilarious it wouldn't surprise me if Gabe said this purely just to get under the skin of people who feel that what media one consumes is srs bsns. It amazes me to see just how firmly people from both sides get their panties in a twist over a bloody TV show.

Captcha: teh inter webs

Well spoken captcha, well spoken.

double post

Well... I guess I'm not surprised at anyone being a brony now.

aegix drakan:

Yeah, that was my reaction when I found out about it. I laughed. That's about it.

Maybe I should start keeping tally on how many famous or well-known people admit to liking MLP. Seems like one of those things to keep score of, but I can't be bothered.

I'm pretty sure this was put here solely for the reactions. You know, I didn't think it was possible to have such aggressive apathy towards something. It's kind of amusing.

Toilet:
This is news?

Okay. Stop the planet; I want to get off.

To be fair, it's in Off-Topic Discussion, not The News Room.

oZode:
Now this means valve fanboys (whom are MLP fanboys) will be even more obnoxious about their MLP fanboyism, doesn't it?

No, all it means is that people will have another reason to throw the word "fanboy" around.

Doclector:

...um what does being a cynic give you? Happiness is far better than being a cynic, there already enoguh sadness in the world. Be a happy man.
