Valve's Gabe is a brony

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

aegix drakan:
Gabe Newell is into MLP?

XD!!!

That's pretty funny.

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:
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!

...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.

And abuse the TF2 sprays with ponies on them more while claiming "Gabe Newall's a brony so it's k" then promptly talking about their 12 chapter long fan fictions about shipping rainbowdash with a rock or whatever you guys do.

Durgiun:
Imagine if Valve made a My Little Pony game.

I'd be interested.

You, me, and 99% of all gamers.

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.

This man makes a very valid point.

up till this point, I did not not know there was a difference

Random Fella:
Well
If this is true...
Gabe just got 20% cooler

Now then...

Come Gabe, do it, you know it'd be awesome

Anyway, I'll take this as a ponythread, and link this group for any person interested in other MLP related topics

Would recommend turning chat notifications off, as it is a very lively group.

God please no...Please no!

Keep your Ponies out of my Valve games please...

The difference is how vocal one is about liking it.

The difference is a completely arbitrary one that varies from person to person. Whether you consider yourself or someone else to be a brony or just a fan is entirely up to you. There's no concrete definition of the word.

Come now friend, I didn't say you had to play them now did I?
A few ponified versions of games wouldn't hurt you, since you don't have to buy them, it's not like he'll force you too :)

And this is why I'll never understand Bronies.

Say, I liked Game of Thrones - I wouldn't change my avatar and literally embark on a crusade to make everyone aware of and watch GoT. Bronies come off as a cross between man-children and cultist recruiters.

Those are either non-typical bronies or you're just making that up, probably the latter, because it's already "k" regardless of whether Gabe is one or not.

Yeah, but the problem is that when it comes to valve fanboys it is mandatory they own everything valve makes. That means if valve were to make a MLP game for god know why, then they would be forced to play such game no matter what.

DRes82:

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.

Im 15 years old got no beard and am in peak condition.
Im also a brony.
AND IM NOT GAY BEFORE YOU ASK IT!

Hey Gabe do you know what's more magical than friendship?

A Half Life 3 Release date. :P

It was, really just a joke, to be honest
I don't really care what valve do, well, pony wise
Just saying if they did, then that would be awesome.

Well, I find my avatar as being something I enjoy, the show is to be honest one of my favorites, so it is my avatar
Like how I assume you have your avatar because whatever it relates to, you enjoy (slips my mind what it refers to however)
I also don't go around making everyone aware of the show, actually, away from the internet I am in no way a brony, I don't go around wanting people to watch the show, that is just silly.
Yes there are some like that, but in every fandom there are the fanatics, you must understand.
Most of the fans are just normal people who enjoy watching the show, and no, not man-children nor cultist recruiters, since I am in no way a man child, I actually act like a boring old man, if i'm being honest.

Dude everything I say on this thread is a joke as well. Like you really think I think they actually make fan fictions about shipping ponies with rocks and that valve fanboys have a "buy everything valve makes" policy?

Besides zynga already has the rights to making hasbro games. Enjoy your cityville reskin.

This is the most glorious, glorious thing.

So when does Valve make a My Little Pony game?

After half life 4 according to the hardcore gamer news.

How amazing. I bet he likes food and movies too!

The fiend! I did not know such horrible people still existed! Crucify him! Crucify him!

You think that's bad? Wait 'til you hear about all that breathing he does.

I have lost all respect for Mr Newell.

Frozen Donkey Wheel2:
STOP IT. You're a fan of something, that doesn't make you a member of some goddamn fan club. I can't stand it when someone has to call themselves a "brony" or a "gleek" or a "lostie" or a "whovian" or a "trekkie" or "potterhead" or...You get the picture. Why isn't enough to just LIKE those things? Why do you have to come up with a stupid title for your own fandom?.

Because it's more efficient to use a single word rather than to say "I am a fan of x" every time you need to reference a hobby or interest in conversation. People label things to make them easier to communicate to others, if we didn't we'd struggle to have even the most basic of conversations.

Clearly you didn't have all that much to begin with then.

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

Launch the anger missiles! Yes, the ones with the yahtzeemind warheads!

Rocklobster99:

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

You owe me a clean jumper, my tea has ended up everywhere from laughter.

And a fresh cup of tea, while you're at it.

Firstly who cares what he does in his spare time, as long as it's not illegal.
Secondly can someone post a legit source for this story, because Op's video looks fake as hell.

It gives me a sense of humour darker than hitler's porn collection, and that makes me a happy man.

The dark sense of humour, I mean. Not hitler's porn collection.

You, me, and 99% of all gamers.

You know what, maybe someone should make a suggestion to Gabe. Who knows, it could take off. Get Lauren Faust on the team as a writer, or something, and the game will be sold-out in a day.

Well, just remember that just because you say you are loving and kind doesn't mean you are.

Wrong. I had tons of respect for Gabe and what he and his company have done for the industry. Hell Valve making TF2 granted him and every higher up in Valve near infinite respect and love for me.
That is until now. And every male over the age of 4 who likes that show loses any respect they have from me if they had any @ all to begin with.

That show is a cancer on the internet. Everywhere I turn someone on some forum I'm on is shoving images of that show down my throat. I am sick of that shit being strewn all over the net. I just wish this damn fad would end soon. It makes all he damn Chuck Norris jokes, Spiderman images, and other overused memes tolerable by comparison which is sad considering most of those overused memes (note most) are crap as well and to make them seem good by comparison makes my eyes bleed.

Captcha = oh brother. Hmmmm seems oddly appropriate Captcha. I agree.

oZode:

seeing as i am one and i wont, no.

but then again, i sould think i would learn to not try and say, "a group i am a part of is fine because i am." as someone will inevitably prove wrong.

Could well be going after publicity and/or interwebz points.

If not, as long as he doesn't allow the immaturity to "inspire" and cross over into Valve games then I have no problem.

My Little Half-Life: Science is Magic!

Or are we going to see Pony themed hats in Team Fortress now?
I wouldn't be the only person with a Rainbow Dash wig on my sniper.

Having only finished MLP on Netflix yesterday I'm happy about this because I loved that show too.

Welcome to the internet, you must be new here. If anyone tells you they have the ability to shove an image down your throat through your monitor, they're lying. If someone posts something you don't like, you don't have to read it, or even visit that site at all.
