This year’s E3 2014 marks the third time that comedian and actress Aisha Tyler has hosted Ubisoft’s E3 press conference. Some people still don’t believe that she really loves and plays games, but I wouldn’t recommend saying that to her in person.
"To come and tell me that something that I've lived with and loved since I was a little kid is illegitimate, that I'm lying about it," Tyler told NPR in an interview, "I’ll literally tell somebody to their face, 'F**k you'—and I've done it on this floor."
Tyler, who frequently talks about playing games on her podcast, Girl on Guy, says that gamers are a group that has been previously excluded, and that they are now excluding other people.
“The hypocrisy of that is extraordinary," Tyler said. "So I do a lot of calling people on that. So no one let you into your club and now you have one and you don't want to let anyone else in and you know that you're just being full of it right now." Tyler also said that overall, criticism of her has decreased over the years.
