Yesterday, Kotaku kicked off its look back on 2013 with our (and your) nominees for Game of the Year. Just as important as the games, though, are the very real people who play them. For the second year, we're also naming our Gamers of the Year, people who made contributions on behalf of video gaming's regular…
Some people on the Internet haven't been too sympathetic to the YouTubers whose livelihoods have been affected by YouTube's recent Content ID sweeps. Boohoo, they say. Get a real job.
It'd be easy to think that getting a PS4 four days before most of the world was the coolest thing to happen to the man who plays combustible video game nerd Francis on YouTube. Or maybe it was having Xbox exec Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb fly down to his house for a trash-talking lightsaber battle that ended with Francis…
Hey, it's Francis! Someone went and sent Francis a regular, retail PS4, which he opens in this video like a kid at Christmas.
Out of his infamous furious persona, Francis took to YouTube to talk about Justin Carter—the League of Legends player who is currently jailed after making distasteful, but not-serious comments on Facebook.
Everybody's favorite combustible video game commentator usually doesn't comment on companies' personnel moves. But, clearly Don Mattrick's move to Zynga has inflamed Francis more than, say, the departure of former EA CEO John Riccitiello. The result?

SimCity launched overnight, if by "launched," one means "was as inaccessible as it was the day before." For some, anyway. Here to give voice to their rage is Francis, who's upset that billions of simoleons in vital public infrastructure is needlessly delayed by EA's inability to offer preloading. Sit back, take a…
Channeling Mel Gibson's Braveheart in this new video, Francis gets totally psyched for the next World of Warcraft expansion, Mists of Pandaria. Totally. Psyched.
Francis, the vox fulminati of gamers worldwide, has contemplated yesterday's formal unveiling of the Wii U's price, specifications and launch lineup and offers this cogent analysis of its shortcomings, plus the phonetic pronunciation of "TVii."
I had to watch this about four times just to be completely sure that Internet video game rage comedian Francis did not, in fact, eat his Blizzard keychain authenticator during this rant about yesterday's breach of Battle.Net. Obviously, this video is loud and its language is NSFW.
Internet comedian Francis, who by now has his nerd shtick almost perfected, leaves his webcam and bedroom behind and takes to the streets for a Magic Card tournament.
