If you watched Ubisoft's E3 press conference, you undoubtedly have seen Aisha Tyler (Ghost Whisperer, The Talk) hosting the presser. While it's common for most companies to use a hot girl in order to drum up more attention, Tyler seemed to be genuinely enjoying herself and didn't seem like a fish out of water at all.
Of course, seeing as this is the internets, everyone has a reason to hate something nowadays. So, in return, Tyler posted a rather scathing response on her Facebook page. If you don't have an account in Facebook, we've posted the entire thing in its entirety below.
Dear Gamers.I play.I've played since I was a little kid.Since I begged my dad to buy me a Nintendo LCD Donkey Kong, Jr.Since I blew through three weeks' allowance playing Defender at the laundromat.Since you were a twinge in the left side of your daddy's underoos.I've been a gamer since I made friends with a girl in the 5th grade just to get at her Atari.Since I missed the bus playing Galaga after school.Since I missed the start of Return of the Jedi playing Tempest in the theater lobby.You think you know. You don't know.I've been a gamer since before you could read.Since I aced midterms after staying up all night playing Evil Tetris.Since I became dorm champ at Leisure Suit Larry.Since I double-wielded on Time Crisis 3 at Fuddrucker's.I was a voice in not one, but two major video game titles.I hosted the Reach Beta tutorial.I was a Gears of War superfan panelist at ComicCon.I hosted the Ubisoft presser at E3 2012.I didn't do any of it for the money.For most I got paid next to nothing, and for some, less than that.I did it because I love video games.Because I've dreamt since I was a kid of being in one of the games I love.How many games have you done voices for?How many cons have you repped at?Your buddy's Unreal Tournament garage deathmatch doesn't count.I go to E3 each year because I love video games.Because new titles still get me high.Because I still love getting swag.Love wearing my gamer pride on my sleeve.People ask me what console I play.Motherfucker, ALL of them.I get invited to E3 because real gamers know I'm a gamer.I don't do it for the money.I have plenty of money.I don't do it for the fame.Fuck fame.I do it because I love video games.I don't give out my gamertag because I don't want a mess of noob jackholes lining upto assassinate me on XBL.I don't give a shit what you think about my gamerscore.I don't play to prove a point.I don't play to be the best.I play because I love it.I play.I've been playing my whole life.I'm not ashamed of it.I don't apologize for it.It's who I am.To the core.I'm a gamer.So to all the haters out there who claim I don't play;To the GAF dicks,Gamespot trolls,To every illiterate racist douchebag on Youtube:Flame away. Go nuts.Post every jackass comment your heart desires.I'll still be playing when your mom's kicked you out of her basementand you have to sell your old-ass consoleand get a real job.For now, I say to you respectfully,and I mean this from the bottom of my heart,GFYS.
I'm hoping this puts a stop to all those "hot women don't play games" stereotype that's so known now that it's actually a shocker when it's true.
